Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:29 - Since I am already found guilty, why should I struggle in vain?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:30 - Even if I washed myself with soap and my hands with cleansing powder,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:31 - you would plunge me into a slime pit so that even my clothes would detest me.
