Job 16:1-17
  • 1Then Job answered and said:
  • 2"I have heard many such things; miserable comforters are you all.
  • 3Shall windy words have an end? Or what provokes you that you answer?
  • 4I also could speak as you do, if you were in my place; I could join words together against you and shake my head at you.
  • 5I could strengthen you with my mouth, and the solace of my lips would assuage your pain.
  • 6"If I speak, my pain is not assuaged, and if I forbear, how much of it leaves me?
  • 7Surely now God has worn me out; he has made desolate all my company.
  • 8And he has shriveled me up, which is a witness against me, and my leanness has risen up against me; it testifies to my face.
  • 9He has torn me in his wrath and hated me; he has gnashed his teeth at me; my adversary sharpens his eyes against me.
  • 10Men have gaped at me with their mouth; they have struck me insolently on the cheek; they mass themselves together against me.
  • 11God gives me up to the ungodly and casts me into the hands of the wicked.
  • 12I was at ease, and he broke me apart; he seized me by the neck and dashed me to pieces; he set me up as his target;
  • 13his archers surround me. He slashes open my kidneys and does not spare; he pours out my gall on the ground.
  • 14He breaks me with breach upon breach; he runs upon me like a warrior.
  • 15I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin and have laid my strength in the dust.
  • 16My face is red with weeping, and on my eyelids is deep darkness,
  • 17although there is no violence in my hands, and my prayer is pure.
