Job Promises Silence
Then Job answered the LORD and said:
"Behold, d I am vile;
What shall I answer You?
e I lay my hand over my mouth.
Once I have spoken, but I will not answer;
Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further."

And I said: "O my God, I am too ashamed and humiliated to lift up my face to You, my God; for our iniquities have risen higher than our heads, and our guilt has grown up to the heavens.
Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.
The princes refrained from talking, And put their hand on their mouth.
I was mute, I did not open my mouth, Because it was You who did it.
