Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:1 - Then Job answered and said,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:2 -
How long will ye vex my soul,
And break me in pieces with words?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:3 -
These ten times have ye reproached me:
Ye are not ashamed that ye deal hardly with me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:4 -
And be it indeed that I have erred,
Mine error remaineth with myself.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:5 -
If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me,
And plead against me my reproach;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:6 -
Know now that God hath subverted me in my cause,
And hath compassed me with his net.

Everything Is against Him

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:7 -
Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard:
I cry for help, but there is no justice.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:8 -
He hath walled up my way that I cannot pass,
And hath set darkness in my paths.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:9 -
He hath stripped me of my glory,
And taken the crown from my head.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:10 -
He hath broken me down on every side, and I am gone;
And my hope hath he plucked up like a tree.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:11 -
He hath also kindled his wrath against me,
And he counteth me unto him as one of his adversaries.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:12 -
His troops come on together,
And cast up their way against me,
And encamp round about my tent.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:13 -
He hath put my brethren far from me,
And mine acquaintance are wholly estranged from me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:14 -
My kinsfolk have failed,
And my familiar friends have forgotten me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:15 -
They that dwell in my house, and my maids, count me for a stranger:
I am an alien in their sight.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:16 -
I call unto my servant, and he giveth me no answer,
Though I entreat him with my mouth.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:17 -
My breath is strange to my wife,
And my supplication to the children of mine own mother.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:18 -
Even young children despise me;
If I arise, they speak against me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:19 -
All my familiar friends abhor me,
And they whom I loved are turned against me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:20 -
My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh,
And I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:21 -
Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends;
For the hand of God hath touched me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:22 -
Why do ye persecute me as God,
And are not satisfied with my flesh?

Job Says, "My Redeemer Lives"

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:23 -
Oh that my words were now written!
Oh that they were inscribed in a book!
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:24 -
That with an iron pen and lead
They were graven in the rock for ever!
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:25 -
But as for me I know that my Redeemer liveth,
And at last he will stand up upon the earth:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:26 -
And after my skin, even this body, is destroyed,
Then without my flesh shall I see God;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:27 -
Whom I, even I, shall see, on my side,
And mine eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger.
My heart is consumed within me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:28 -
If ye say, How we will persecute him!
And that the root of the matter is found in me;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 19:29 -
Be ye afraid of the sword:
For wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword,
That ye may know there is a judgment.
