Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. (Romans 8:26 ESV)

for he will despise the good sense of your words. (Proverbs 23:9 ESV)

yet I will argue my ways to his face. (Job 13:15 ESV)
