I would lay out my case[a] before him
and fill my mouth with arguments.

Footnotes:

  1. Job 23:4 tn The word מִשְׁפָּט (mishpat) is normally “judgment; decision.” But in these contexts it refers to the legal case that Job will bring before God. With the verb עָרַךְ (ʿarakh, “to set in order; to lay out”) the whole image of drawing up a lawsuit is complete.
