Job 16

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one And Job answered and said:
2 I heard a lot of this; miserable comforters are all of you!
3 Will the windy words end? and what made you say that?
4 And I could speak as you would if your soul were in the place of my soul; I would take up arms against you with words and would nod at you with my head;
5 I would strengthen you with my tongue and comfort you with the movement of my lips.

6 Whether I say, my sorrow does not quench; stop what is moving away from me?
7 But now He has exhausted me. You destroyed my whole family.
eight You wrinkled me as a testimony against me; my exhaustion rises against me, rebukes me in the face.
nine His anger torments and enmities against me, grinds his teeth against me; my enemy sharpens his eyes on me.
ten They have opened their mouth on me; cursing beat me on the cheeks; everyone conspired against me.
eleven God betrayed me to the wicked and threw me into the hands of the wicked.
12 I was calm, but He shocked me; took me by the neck and beat me and set me as a goal for Himself.
thirteen His archers surrounded me; He cuts my innards and does not spare, spilled my bile on the ground,
fourteen breaks through me in breach after breach, runs at me like a warrior.
fifteen I sewed sackcloth on my skin and laid my head in dust.
sixteen My face was red with weeping, and on my garments the shadow of death,

17 with all that there is no theft in my hands, and my prayer is pure.
18 Earth! Do not cover my blood, and let there be no room for my cry.
19 And now here in heaven is my Witness, and my Protector in the highest!
twenty My eloquent friends! My eye drops to God.
21 Oh, if a man could have a contest with God, as a son of man with his neighbor!
22 For my years come to an end, and I depart on the path of irreparable.
