Tell me, what have I done wrong? Show me my rebellion and my sin.
How many sins have been charged against me? Show me the list--how bad is it?
What is the number of my evil-doings and my sins? give me knowledge of them.
How many are my iniquities and my sins? Make me know my transgression and my sin.
How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me know my transgression and my sin.

1 tn The pronoun “my” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied here in the translation.
2 sn Job uses three words for sin here: “iniquities,” which means going astray, erring; “sins,” which means missing the mark or the way; and “transgressions,” which are open rebellions. They all emphasize different kinds of sins and different degrees of willfulness. Job is demanding that any sins be brought up. Both Job and his friends agree that great afflictions would have to indicate great offenses – he wants to know what they are.
