Job 27:1-6 World English Bible (WEB)

27 Job again took up his parable, and said,

“As God lives, who has taken away my right,
    the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter.
(For the length of my life is still in me,
    and the spirit of God is in my nostrils);
surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness,
    neither shall my tongue utter deceit.
Far be it from me that I should justify you.
    Until I die I will not put away my integrity from me.
I hold fast to my righteousness, and will not let it go.
    My heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

Job Affirms His Righteousness

27 Then Job [a]continued his discourse and said,

“As God lives, who has taken away my right,
And the Almighty, who has embittered my soul,
For as long as [b]life is in me,
And the [c]breath of God is in my nostrils,
My lips certainly will not speak unjustly,
Nor will my tongue mutter deceit.
“Far be it from me that I should declare you right;
Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.
“I hold fast my righteousness and will not let it go.
My heart does not reproach any of my days.
