Remember, I pray thee, who [ever]
perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off?
Should not the multitude
of words be answered? and should a man full of talk
be justified? ... For thou
hast said, My doctrine [is
] pure, and I am clean
in thine eyes.
Job 17:5 He that
speaketh flattery to [his
] friends, even the eyes
of his children shall fail.
Let me not, I pray you, accept
any man's person, neither let me give flattering
titles unto man. ... For I know not
to give flattering titles; [in so doing
] my maker would soon take me away.
For truly my
] not [be
] false: he that is perfect in
] with thee.
put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time
cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
-8 But if
our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall
we say? [Is] God
unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak
as a man) ... And not [rather
], (as we be
slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us
do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.
2 Corinthians 4:2
But have renounced
the hidden things of dishonesty
walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by
manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
