Job 9:30-32 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

30 Even if I scrubbed my hands with soap
    and washed myself whiter than snow,
31 God would still push me into the slime pit,[a]
    and even my clothes would hate to touch me.
32 God is not a human like me, so I cannot argue with him.
    I cannot take him to court.

30 Even if I washed myself with soap
    and my hands with cleansing powder,
31 you would plunge me into a slime pit
    so that even my clothes would detest me.

    that we might confront each other in court.
