The Book of Job

Chapter 6

1

But Job answered4 and said,4

2

Oh that my grief were throughly2 weighed,11 and my calamity 1962 laid4 in the balances together!

3

For now it would be heavier4 than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up.1

4

For the arrows of the Almighty [are] within me, the poison whereof drinketh6 up my spirit: the terrors of God do set themselves in array4 against me.

5

Doth the wild ass bray4 when he hath grass? or loweth4 the ox over his fodder?

6

Can that which is unsavoury be eaten11 without salt? or is there [any] taste in the white of an egg?

7

The things [that] my soul refused14 to touch2 [are] as my sorrowful meat.

8

Oh that4 I might have4 my request; and that God would grant4 [me] the thing that I long for!

9

Even that it would please55 God to destroy17 me; that he would let loose55 his hand, and cut me off!17

10

Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden17 myself in sorrow: let him not spare;4 for I have not concealed14 the words of the Holy One.

11

What [is] my strength, that I should hope?17 and what [is] mine end, that I should prolong55 my life?

12

[Is] my strength the strength of stones? or [is] my flesh of brass?

13

[Is] not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite8 from me?

14

To him that is afflicted pity [should be shewed] from his friend; but he forsaketh4 the fear of the Almighty.

15

My brethren have dealt deceitfully1 as a brook, [and] as the stream of brooks they pass away;4

16

Which are blackish6 by reason of the ice, [and] wherein the snow is hid:101

17

What time they wax warm,29 they vanish:8 when it is hot, they are consumed8 out of their place.

18

The paths of their way are turned aside;11 they go4 to nothing, and perish.4

19

The troops of Tema looked,52 the companies of Sheba waited14 for them.

20

They were confounded1 because they had hoped;1 they came1 thither, and were ashamed.4

21

For now ye are nothing; ye see4 [my] casting down, and are afraid.4

22

Did I say,1 Bring3 unto me? or, Give a reward3 for me of your substance?

23

Or, Deliver16 me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem4 me from the hand of the mighty?

24

Teach54 me, and I will hold my tongue:55 and cause me to understand54 wherein I have erred.1

25

How forcible8 are right words! but what doth your arguing53 reprove?55

26

Do ye imagine4 to reprove53 words, and the speeches of one that is desperate,12 [which are] as wind?

27

Yea, ye overwhelm55 the fatherless, and ye dig4 [a pit] for your friend.

28

Now therefore be content,54 look3 upon me; for [it is] evident unto you if I lie.17

29

Return,3 I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return3 again, my righteousness [is] in it.

30

Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern4 perverse things?
