13 “Keep silent(A) and let me speak;(B)
    then let come to me what may.(C)
14 Why do I put myself in jeopardy
    and take my life in my hands?(D)
15 Though he slay me, yet will I hope(E) in him;(F)
    I will surely[a] defend my ways to his face.(G)
16 Indeed, this will turn out for my deliverance,(H)
    for no godless(I) person would dare come before him!(J)
17 Listen carefully to what I say;(K)
    let my words ring in your ears.
18 Now that I have prepared my case,(L)
    I know I will be vindicated.(M)
19 Can anyone bring charges against me?(N)
    If so, I will be silent(O) and die.(P)

20 “Only grant me these two things, God,
    and then I will not hide from you:
21 Withdraw your hand(Q) far from me,
    and stop frightening me with your terrors.(R)
22 Then summon me and I will answer,(S)
    or let me speak, and you reply to me.(T)
