Job 9:20-22 Modern English Version (MEV)

20 Though I were righteous, my own mouth would condemn me;
    though I were perfect, it would prove me perverse.

21 “Though I were perfect,
    I would not know myself;
    I would despise my life.
22 It is all one thing; therefore I said,
    ‘He destroys both the perfect and the wicked.’

Job 9:20-22 New International Version (NIV)

20 Even if I were innocent, my mouth would condemn me;
    if I were blameless, it would pronounce me guilty.

21 “Although I am blameless,
    I have no concern for myself;
    I despise my own life.
22 It is all the same; that is why I say,
    ‘He destroys both the blameless and the wicked.’
