Surely I would speak to the Almighty - אולם ulam, O that: - I wish I could speak to the Almighty!
I desire to reason with God - He speaks here to reference to the proceedings in a court of justice. Ye pretend to be advocates for God, but ye are forgers of lies: O that God himself would appear! Before him I could soon prove my innocence of the evils with which ye charge me.
