ESV : God may vanquish him, not a man
NIV : let God, not a man, refute him
ESV : my pressure will not be heavy upon you
NIV : nor should my hand be heavy on
ESV : he finds occasions against me
NIV : God has found fault with me
ESV : let his flesh become fresh with youth

Here's a 31 year old 'modern' version :

In the thread "Why I became a calvinist" some posts were made about the Atonement. Discussing Calvinism and the Atonement in one thread is a daunting task. I think atonement issues deserve their own thread. So, here we are.
@agedman made an interesting post in the other thread. He wrote:
"The penal aspects are one portion of the substitution theories in which the Scriptures display the work of redemption.
Imo, no single theory stands as complete, for salvation required aspects of...
