Hebrew Bible, Job, 27.2-27.5

חָלִילָה לִּי אִם־אַצְדִּיק אֶתְכֶם עַד־אֶגְוָע לֹא־אָסִיר תֻּמָּתִי מִמֶּנִּי׃Far be it from me that I should justify you; Till I die I will not put away mine integrity from me."

תַּשִּׂיגֵהוּ כַמַּיִם בַּלָּהוֹת לַיְלָה גְּנָבַתּוּ סוּפָה׃As God liveth, who hath taken away my right; And the Almighty, who hath dealt bitterly with me;"

חַי־אֵל הֵסִיר מִשְׁפָּטִי וְשַׁדַּי הֵמַר נַפְשִׁי׃As God liveth, who hath taken away my right; And the Almighty, who hath dealt bitterly with me;"

כִּי־כָל־עוֹד נִשְׁמָתִי בִי וְרוּחַ אֱלוֹהַּ בְּאַפִּי׃All the while my breath is in me And the spirit of God is in my nostrils,"

אִם־תְּדַבֵּרְנָה שְׂפָתַי עַוְלָה וּלְשׁוֹנִי אִם־יֶהְגֶּה רְמִיָּה׃Surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness, Neither shall my tongue utter deceit;"
