Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:1 - Then Job answered and said,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:2 -
Oh that my vexation were but weighed,
And all my calamity laid in the balances!
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:3 -
For now it would be heavier than the sand of the seas:
Therefore have my words been rash.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:4 -
For the arrows of the Almighty are within me,
The poison whereof my spirit drinketh up:
The terrors of God do set themselves in array against me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:5 -
Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass?
Or loweth the ox over his fodder?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:6 -
Can that which hath no savor be eaten without salt?
Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:7 -
My soul refuseth to touch them;
They are as loathsome food to me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:8 -
Oh that I might have my request;
And that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:9 -
Even that it would please God to crush me;
That he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:10 -
And be it still my consolation,
Yea, let me exult in pain that spareth not,
That I have not denied the words of the Holy One.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:11 -
What is my strength, that I should wait?
And what is mine end, that I should be patient?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:12 -
Is my strength the strength of stones?
Or is my flesh of brass?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:13 -
Is it not that I have no help in me,
And that wisdom is driven quite from me?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:14 -
To him that is ready to faint kindness should be showed from his friend;
Even to him that forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:15 -
My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook,
As the channel of brooks that pass away;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:16 -
Which are black by reason of the ice,
And wherein the snow hideth itself:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:17 -
What time they wax warm, they vanish;
When it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:18 -
The caravans that travel by the way of them turn aside;
They go up into the waste, and perish.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:19 -
The caravans of Tema looked,
The companies of Sheba waited for them.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:20 -
They were put to shame because they had hoped;
They came thither, and were confounded.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:21 -
For now ye are nothing;
Ye see a terror, and are afraid.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:22 -
Did I say, Give unto me?
Or, Offer a present for me of your substance?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:23 -
Or, Deliver me from the adversary’s hand?
Or, Redeem me from the hand of the oppressors?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:24 -
Teach me, and I will hold my peace;
And cause me to understand wherein I have erred.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:25 -
How forcible are words of uprightness!
But your reproof, what doth it reprove?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:26 -
Do ye think to reprove words,
Seeing that the speeches of one that is desperate are as wind?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:27 -
Yea, ye would cast lots upon the fatherless,
And make merchandise of your friend.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:28 -
Now therefore be pleased to look upon me;
For surely I shall not lie to your face.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:29 -
Return, I pray you, let there be no injustice;
Yea, return again, my cause is righteous.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:30 -
Is there injustice on my tongue?
Cannot my taste discern mischievous things?
