how so ?

The phrase is like what Job said : Even though He slay me, yet will I trust in him.
(paraphrased)

Job 13:15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.

Let me explain the meaning of "defend my own ways before him " his defense is his utter trust (faith) in his God ! no matter the accusations that had been laid against him for his calamities.
It is not a defense of HIS Own works/efforts, but God alones faithfulness.

It is not a defense of the many paths to God.
It is by faith and faith alone that is refereed too.
