7 Gird up thy loins now like a man; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto Me.
7 Nay, gird up now thy loins like a man; and I will ask thee, and do thou answer me.
7 Gird your waist like a man. I will question you, and you must answer me.
8 Wilt thou even make void My judgment? Wilt thou condemn Me, that thou mayest be justified?
8 Do not set aside my judgement: and dost thou think that I have dealt with thee in any other way, than that thou mightest appear to be righteous?
8 Will you make my judgment null and void; and will you condemn me so that you may be justified?
9 Or hast thou an arm like God? And canst thou thunder with a voice like Him?
9 And do you have an arm like God, or a voice like thunder?
10 Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency, and array thyself with glory and beauty.
10 Assume now a lofty bearing and power; and clothe thyself with glory and honour.
10 Envelop yourself with splendor, and raise yourself up on high, and be glorious, and put on splendid garments.
11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath; and look upon every one that is proud, and abase him.
11 And send forth messengers with wrath; and lay low every haughty one.
11 Scatter the arrogant with your wrath, and, when you see all the arrogant, humble them.
12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
12 Bring down also the proud man; and consume at once the ungodly.
12 And cast the sinners into their place.
13 Hide them in the dust together; bind their faces in the hidden place.
13 And hide them together in the earth; and fill their faces with shame.
13 Bury them in the earth together; cover their faces with fine dust.
14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.
14 Then will I confess that thy right hand can save thee.
14 Then will I also give you credit when your own right hand has saved you.
