1 ἰδοὺ ταῦτα ἑώρακέν μου ὁ ὀφθαλμὸς καὶ ἀκήκοέν μου τὸ οὖς 2 καὶ οἶδα ὅσα καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐπίστασθε καὶ οὐκ ἀσυνετώτερός εἰμι ὑμῶν 3 οὐ μὴν δὲ ἀλ{L'} ἐγὼ πρὸς κύριον λαλήσω ἐλέγξω δὲ ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ ἐὰν βούληται 4 ὑμεῖς δέ ἐστε ἰατροὶ ἄδικοι καὶ ἰαταὶ κακῶν πάντες 5 εἴη δὲ ὑμῖν κωφεῦσαι καὶ ἀποβήσεται ὑμῖν εἰς σοφίαν 6 ἀκούσατε ἔλεγχον στόματός μου κρίσιν δὲ χειλέων μου προσέχετε 7 πότερον οὐκ ἔναντι κυρίου λαλεῖτε ἔναντι δὲ αὐτοῦ φθέγγεσθε δόλον 8 ἦ ὑποστελεῖσθε ὑμεῖς δὲ αὐτοὶ κριταὶ γένεσθε 9 καλόν γε ἐὰν ἐξιχνιάσῃ ὑμᾶς εἰ γὰρ τὰ πάντα ποιοῦντες προστεθήσεσθε αὐτῷ 10 οὐθὲν ἧττον ἐλέγξει ὑμᾶς εἰ δὲ καὶ κρυφῇ πρόσωπα θαυμάσετε 11 πότερον οὐχὶ δεινὰ αὐτοῦ στροβήσει ὑμᾶς φόβος δὲ πα{R'} αὐτοῦ ἐπιπεσεῖται ὑμῖν 12 ἀποβήσεται δὲ ὑμῶν τὸ ἀγαυρίαμα ἴσα σποδῷ τὸ δὲ σῶμα πήλινον 1 Eyes nor ears nor wits are wanting to me, 2 and I know all this as well as you, but I am still a match for you. 3 Or rather, it is to God, the omnipotent, I will speak; with him I remonstrate; 4 but first I would prove you what you are, unskilful plasterers all of you, that follow false rules of your craft. 5 Would you but hold your tongues once for all! It were your best wisdom. 6 Listen while I refute you; mark well what are my pleadings. 7 Do you think God stands in need of your shifts, your lying advocacy? 8 Are you God’s hired partisans, resolved to acquit him? 9 Why then, beware of his own infallible scrutiny; think you he will be blinded, as men are blinded, by your sophistries? 10 Nay, he himself will be the first to blame you for wrongful attachment to his cause; 11 your turn, then, to fear every movement of his, to cower before his terrors! 12 Your wise memories will vanish into dust, your pride will prove to be a thing of clay. 1

Ecce omnia hæc vidit oculus meus,
et audivit auris mea, et intellexi singula.
2
Secundum scientiam vestram et ego novi:
nec inferior vestri sum.
3
Sed tamen ad Omnipotentem loquar,
et disputare cum Deo cupio:
4
prius vos ostendens fabricatores mendacii,
et cultores perversorum dogmatum.
5
Atque utinam taceretis,
ut putaremini esse sapientes.
6
Audite ergo correptionem meam,
et judicium labiorum meorum attendite.
7
Numquid Deus indiget vestro mendacio,
ut pro illo loquamini dolos?
8
numquid faciem ejus accipitis,
et pro Deo judicare nitimini?
9
aut placebit ei quem celare nihil potest?
aut decipietur, ut homo, vestris fraudulentiis?
10
Ipse vos arguet,
quoniam in abscondito faciem ejus accipitis.
11
Statim ut se commoverit, turbabit vos,
et terror ejus irruet super vos.
12
Memoria vestra comparabitur cineri,
et redigentur in lutum cervices vestræ.
13 κωφεύσατε ἵνα λαλήσω καὶ ἀναπαύσωμαι θυμοῦ 14 ἀναλαβὼν τὰς σάρκας μου τοῖς ὀδοῦσιν ψυχὴν δέ μου θήσω ἐν χειρί 15 ἐάν με χειρώσηται ὁ δυνάστης ἐπεὶ καὶ ἦρκται ἦ μὴν λαλήσω καὶ ἐλέγξω ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ 16 καὶ τοῦτό μοι ἀποβήσεται εἰς σωτηρίαν οὐ γὰρ ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ δόλος εἰσελεύσεται 17 ἀκούσατε ἀκούσατε τὰ ῥήματά μου ἀναγγελῶ γὰρ ὑμῶν ἀκουόντων 18 ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐγγύς εἰμι τοῦ κρίματός μου οἶδα ἐγὼ ὅτι δίκαιος ἀναφανοῦμαι 19 τίς γάρ ἐστιν ὁ κριθησόμενός μοι ὅτι νῦν κωφεύσω καὶ ἐκλείψω 13 Nay, hold your tongues for a little, while I say out my mind. 14 Do not ask why I set my teeth so firmly,[1] take my life in my hand; 15 let him slay me if he will! I await his decree;[2] needs must that I should make my defence before him, 16 and spare me he will; let the guilty shun his presence, not I. 17 Nay, hear me out; let me open my mind in full; 18 should I stand my trial, I know that I must be found innocent! 19 Only let me meet my accuser! Why must I die unheard?[3] 13
Tacete paulisper, ut loquar
quodcumque mihi mens suggesserit.
14
Quare lacero carnes meas dentibus meis,
et animam meam porto in manibus meis?
15
Etiam si occiderit me, in ipso sperabo:
verumtamen vias meas in conspectu ejus arguam.
16
Et ipse erit salvator meus:
non enim veniet in conspectu ejus omnis hypocrita.
17
Audite sermonem meum,
et ænigmata percipite auribus vestris.
18
Si fuero judicatus,
scio quod justus inveniar.
19
Quis est qui judicetur mecum?
veniat: quare tacens consumor?
20 δυεῖν δέ μοι χρήσῃ τότε ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου σου οὐ κρυβήσομαι 21 τὴν χεῖρα ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ ἀπέχου καὶ ὁ φόβος σου μή με καταπλησσέτω 22 εἶτα καλέσεις ἐγὼ δέ σοι ὑπακούσομαι ἢ λαλήσεις ἐγὼ δέ σοι δώσω ἀνταπόκρισιν 23 πόσαι εἰσὶν αἱ ἁμαρτίαι μου καὶ αἱ ἀνομίαι μου δίδαξόν με τίνες εἰσίν 24 διὰ τί ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ κρύπτῃ ἥγησαι δέ με ὑπεναντίον σοι 25 ἦ ὡς φύλλον κινούμενον ὑπὸ ἀνέμου εὐλαβηθήσῃ ἢ ὡς χόρτῳ φερομένῳ ὑπὸ πνεύματος ἀντίκεισαί μοι 26 ὅτι κατέγραψας κα{T'} ἐμοῦ κακά περιέθηκας δέ μοι νεότητος ἁμαρτίας 27 ἔθου δέ μου τὸν πόδα ἐν κωλύματι ἐφύλαξας δέ μου πάντα τὰ ἔργα εἰς δὲ ῥίζας τῶν ποδῶν μου ἀφίκου 28 ὃ παλαιοῦται ἴσα ἀσκῷ ἢ ὥσπερ ἱμάτιον σητόβρωτον 20 But two rights I claim, if I am to face thee openly; 21 withdraw thy chastising hand, and daunt me with thy terrors no longer. 22 Then, if thou wilt call me in question, I will make reply; or let me speak, and be thou ready with thy answer. 23 Tell me, what are all these transgressions, these faults thou findest in me? What crime, what wrong-doing is mine? 24 Why is it that thou turnest thy back on me, and wilt treat me as an enemy? 25 As well wrestle with a flying leaf, chase a wisp of straw, 26 as keep this jealous record against me, tax me with the offences of my youth! 27 To hold me so close a prisoner, watch me wherever I go, track my foot-prints, 28 when I am no better than rotting carrion, than a garment fretted away by the moth! 20
Duo tantum ne facias mihi,
et tunc a facie tua non abscondar:
21
manum tuam longe fac a me,
et formido tua non me terreat.
22
Voca me, et ego respondebo tibi:
aut certe loquar, et tu responde mihi.
23
Quantas habeo iniquitates et peccata?
scelera mea et delicta ostende mihi.
24
Cur faciem tuam abscondis,
et arbitraris me inimicum tuum?
25
Contra folium, quod vento rapitur, ostendis potentiam tuam,
et stipulam siccam persequeris:
26
scribis enim contra me amaritudines,
et consumere me vis peccatis adolescentiæ meæ.
27
Posuisti in nervo pedem meum,
et observasti omnes semitas meas,
et vestigia pedum meorum considerasti:
28
qui quasi putredo consumendus sum,
et quasi vestimentum quod comeditur a tinea.
