Poor Job! Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't!
If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse. Job 9:20 Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life. Job 9:21
If he tries to show God that he is good (or if he is indeed good), the act of attempting to show God he's good will only condemn him. And even if he was a perfectly good person, he just doesn't know.
