Book 29 : KETUVIM - JOB - Chapter 016


Then Job answered and said


I have heard many such things; sorry comforters are ye all


Shall windy words have an end? Or what provoketh thee that thou answerest


I also could speak as ye do; if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could join words together against you, and shake my head at you


I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips would assuage your grief


Though I speak, my pain is not assuaged; 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 shrivelled me up, which is a witness against me; and my leanness riseth up against me, it testifieth to my face


He hath torn me in His wrath, and hated me; He hath gnashed upon me with His teeth; mine adversary sharpeneth his eyes upon me


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


G-d delivereth me to the ungodly, and casteth me into the hands of the wicked


I was at ease, and He broke me asunder; yea, He hath taken me by the neck, and dashed me to pieces; He hath also 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 have laid my horn in the dust


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


Although there is no violence in my hands, and my prayer is pure


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


Even now, behold, my Witness is in heaven, and He that testifieth of me is on high


Mine inward thoughts are my intercessors, mine eye poureth out tears unto G-d


That He would set aright a man contending with G-d, as a son of man setteth aright his neighbour


For the years that are few are coming on, and I shall go the way whence I shall not return
