If only my grief could be weighed

and my devastation placed with it on the scales.

Tools specific to Job 6:3

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:3

For then it would outweigh the sand of the seas!

That is why my words are rash.

Tools specific to Job 6:4

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:4

Surely the arrows of the Almighty have pierced me;

my spirit drinks their poison.

God’s terrors are arrayed against me.

Tools specific to Job 6:5

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:5

Does a wild donkey bray over fresh grass

or an ox low over its fodder?

Tools specific to Job 6:6

Is there flavor in an egg white?

I refuse to touch them;

they are like contaminated food.

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:8

If only my request would be granted

and God would provide what I hope for:

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:9

that he would decide to crush me,

to unleash his power and cut me off!

Tools specific to Job 6:10

It would still bring me comfort,

and I would leap for joy in unrelenting pain

that I have not denied the words of the Holy One.

Tools specific to Job 6:11

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:11

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

What is my future, that I should be patient?

Tools specific to Job 6:12

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:12

Is my strength that of stone,

or my flesh made of bronze?

Tools specific to Job 6:13

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:13

Since I cannot help myself,

the hope for success has been banished from me.

Tools specific to Job 6:14

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:14

A despairing man should receive loyalty from his friends,

even if he abandons the fear of the Almighty.

Tools specific to Job 6:15

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:15

My brothers are as treacherous as a wadi,

as seasonal streams that overflow

Tools specific to Job 6:16

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:16

and become darkened because of ice,

and the snow melts into them.

Tools specific to Job 6:17

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:17

The wadis evaporate in warm weather;

they disappear from their channels in hot weather.

Tools specific to Job 6:18

Caravans turn away from their routes,

go up into the desert, and perish.

Tools specific to Job 6:19

The caravans of Tema look for these streams.

The traveling merchants of Sheba hope for them.

Tools specific to Job 6:20

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:20

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

When they arrive there, they are disappointed.

Tools specific to Job 6:21

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:21

So this is what you have now become to me.

When you see something dreadful, you are afraid.

Tools specific to Job 6:22

Have I ever said: “Give me something”

or “Pay a bribe for me from your wealth”

Tools specific to Job 6:23

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:23

or “Deliver me from the enemy’s hand”

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

Teach me, and I will be silent.

Help me understand what I did wrong.

Tools specific to Job 6:25

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:25

How painful honest words can be!

But what does your rebuke prove?

Tools specific to Job 6:26

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:26

Do you think that you can disprove my words

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

Tools specific to Job 6:27

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:27

No doubt you would cast lots for a fatherless child

and negotiate a price to sell your friend.

Tools specific to Job 6:28

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:28

But now, please look at me;

I will not lie to your face.

Tools specific to Job 6:29

Unchecked Copy Box Job 6:29

Reconsider; don’t be unjust.

Reconsider; my righteousness is still the issue.

Tools specific to Job 6:30

or can my palate not taste disaster?
