Book 18 : JOB - Chapter 016


I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all


Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest


I also could speak as ye do: if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you


But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief


Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased


But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all my company


And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face


He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me


They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me


God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked


I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder: he hath also taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me up for his mark


His archers compass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground


He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant


I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust


My face is foul with weeping, and on my eyelids is the shadow of death


Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure


O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place


Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high


My friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears unto God


O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour


When a few years are come, then I shall go the way whence I shall not return
