    and he (B)heard the cry of the afflicted—

    that he should not ensnare the people.

31 “For has anyone said to God,
    ‘I have borne punishment; I will not offend any more;
32 (C)teach me what I do not see;
    if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more’?

    because you reject it?
For you must choose, and not I;
    therefore (D)declare what you know.[a]
