Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:1 - Then Job answered and said,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:2 -
I have heard many such things:
Miserable comforters are ye all.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:3 -
Shall vain words have an end?
Or what provoketh thee that thou answerest?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:4 -
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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:5 -
But I would strengthen you with my mouth,
And the solace of my lips would assuage your grief.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:6 -
Though I speak, my grief is not assuaged;
And though I forbear, what am I eased?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:7 -
But now he hath made me weary:
Thou hast made desolate all my company.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:8 -
And thou hast laid fast hold on me, which is a witness against me:
And my leanness riseth up against me,
It testifieth to my face.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:9 -
He hath torn me in his wrath, and persecuted me;
He hath gnashed upon me with his teeth:
Mine adversary sharpeneth his eyes upon me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:10 -
They have gaped upon me with their mouth;
They have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully:
They gather themselves together against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:11 -
God delivereth me to the ungodly,
And casteth me into the hands of the wicked.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:12 -
I was at ease, and he brake me asunder;
Yea, he hath taken me by the neck, and dashed me to pieces:
He hath also set me up for his mark.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:13 -
His archers compass me round about;
He cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare;
He poureth out my gall upon the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:14 -
He breaketh me with breach upon breach;
He runneth upon me like a giant.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:15 -
I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin,
And have laid my horn in the dust.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:16 -
My face is red with weeping,
And on my eyelids is the shadow of death;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:17 -
Although there is no violence in my hands,
And my prayer is pure.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:18 -
O earth, cover not thou my blood,
And let my cry have no resting-place.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:19 -
Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven,
And he that voucheth for me is on high.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:20 -
My friends scoff at me:
But mine eye poureth out tears unto God,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:21 -
That he would maintain the right of a man with God,
And of a son of man with his neighbor!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 16:22 -
For when a few years are come,
I shall go the way whence I shall not return.
