Job 9:30-32 American Standard Version (ASV)

30 If I wash myself [a]with snow water,
And [b]make my hands never so clean;
31 Yet wilt thou plunge me in the ditch,
And mine own clothes shall abhor me.
32 For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him,
That we should come together in judgment.


  1. Job 9:30 Another reading is, with snow.
  2. Job 9:30 Hebrew cleanse my hands with lye.

Job 9:30-32 New International Version (NIV)

30 Even if I washed myself with soap
    and my hands with cleansing powder,
31 you would plunge me into a slime pit
    so that even my clothes would detest me.

32 “He is not a mere mortal like me that I might answer him,
    that we might confront each other in court.
