30 If I wash myself in melted snow, clean my hands with soda,
Jer 2:22  1John 1:8  Isa 1:16-18  Jer 4:14  Job 31:7  Ps 26:6  Rom 10:3 

31 you will only plunge me into the dung, till my clothes themselves recoil from me!

Eccl 6:10  Rom 9:20  Num 23:19  Ps 143:2  1John 3:20  1Sam 16:7  Isa 45:9

1Sam 2:25  Job 9:19  1John 2:1-2  1Kgs 3:16-28  Ps 106:23 

34 to stay his rod from me, or keep away his daunting terrors.
