Job’s Reply to Eliphaz

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:1 -

Then Job answered:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:2 -

If only my grief could be weighed

and my devastation placed with it on the scales.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:3 -

For then it would outweigh the sand of the seas!

That is why my words are rash.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:4 -

Surely the arrows of the Almighty have pierced[fn] me;

my spirit drinks their poison.

God’s terrors are arrayed against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:5 -

Does a wild donkey bray over fresh grass

or an ox low over its fodder?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:6 -

Is bland food eaten without salt?

Is there flavor in an egg white?[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:7 -

I refuse to touch them;

they are like contaminated food.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:8 -

If only my request would be granted

and God would provide what I hope for:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:9 -

that he would decide to crush me,

to unleash his power and cut me off!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:10 -

It would still bring me comfort,

and I would leap for joy in unrelenting pain

that I have not denied[fn] the words of the Holy One.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:11 -

What strength do I have, that I should continue to hope?

What is my future, that I should be patient?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:12 -

Is my strength that of stone,

or my flesh made of bronze?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:13 -

Since I cannot help myself,

the hope for success has been banished from me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:14 -

A despairing man should receive loyalty from his friends,[fn]

even if he abandons the fear of the Almighty.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:15 -

My brothers are as treacherous as a wadi,

as seasonal streams that overflow

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:16 -

and become darkened[fn] because of ice,

and the snow melts into them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:17 -

The wadis evaporate in warm weather;

they disappear from their channels in hot weather.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:18 -

Caravans turn away from their routes,

go up into the desert, and perish.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:19 -

The caravans of Tema look for these streams.

The traveling merchants of Sheba hope for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:20 -

They are ashamed because they had been confident of finding water.

When they arrive there, they are disappointed.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:21 -

So this is what you have now become to me.[fn]

When you see something dreadful, you are afraid.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:22 -

Have I ever said: “Give me something”

or “Pay a bribe for me from your wealth”

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:23 -

or “Deliver me from the enemy’s hand”

or “Redeem me from the hand of the ruthless”?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:24 -

Teach me, and I will be silent.

Help me understand what I did wrong.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:25 -

How painful honest words can be!

But what does your rebuke prove?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:26 -

Do you think that you can disprove my words

or that a despairing man’s words are mere wind?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:27 -

No doubt you would cast lots for a fatherless child

and negotiate a price to sell your friend.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:28 -

But now, please look at me;

I will not lie to your face.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:29 -

Reconsider; don’t be unjust.

Reconsider; my righteousness is still the issue.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:30 -

Is there injustice on my tongue

or can my palate not taste disaster?
