Job 34:5-9 World English Bible (WEB)

For Job has said, ‘I am righteous,
    God has taken away my right:
Notwithstanding my right I am considered a liar.
    My wound is incurable, though I am without disobedience.’
What man is like Job,
    who drinks scorn like water,
Who goes in company with the workers of iniquity,
    and walks with wicked men?
For he has said, ‘It profits a man nothing
    that he should delight himself with God.’

“For Job has said, ‘I am righteous,
But God has taken away my right;
[a]Should I lie concerning my right?
My [b]wound is incurable, though I am without transgression.’
“What man is like Job,
Who drinks up derision like water,
Who goes in company with the workers of iniquity,
And walks with wicked men?
“For he has said, ‘It profits a man nothing
When he [c]is pleased with God.’
