Take note that when men oppress and persecute most unjustly, yet there is cause to justify God in suffering it to be so.  God’s justice is executed upon us by their injustice; if men falsely accuse us, yet God can truly charge us.  When Job has to deal with men, he maintains his integrity against their accusations, Job 27:4-6, but when he has to deal with God, he acknowledges his sin, and will not stand upon his own justification; he will not plead but supplicate (John Oldfield).
