2 If he our ways should mark
With strict inquiring eyes,
Could we for one of thousand faults

Or who that tries the unequal strife,
Shall prosper in the end?
4 The mountains, in thy wrath,
Their ancient seats forsake!
The trembling earth deserts her place,
Her rooted pillars shake!
5 Ah, how shall guilty man
Contend with such a God?
None, none can meet him, and escape;
But through the Savior's blood. Topics: Fall and Depravity of Man Scripture: Job 9:2-6 Languages: English
