“If my heart has been enticed(A) by a woman,(B)
    or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door,
10 then may my wife grind(C) another man’s grain,
    and may other men sleep with her.(D)
11 For that would have been wicked,(E)
    a sin to be judged.(F)
12 It is a fire(G) that burns to Destruction[a];(H)
    it would have uprooted my harvest.(I)

13 “If I have denied justice to any of my servants,(J)
    whether male or female,
    when they had a grievance against me,(K)
14 what will I do when God confronts me?(L)
    What will I answer when called to account?(M)
15 Did not he who made me in the womb make them?(N)
    Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?(O)
