Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:1 - Then Job answered and said:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:2 - “Oh, that my grief were fully weighed,
And my calamity laid with it on the scales!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:3 - For then it would be heavier than the sand of the sea—
Therefore my words have been rash.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:4 - For the arrows of the Almighty are within me;
My spirit drinks in their poison;
The terrors of God are arrayed against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:5 - Does the wild donkey bray when it has grass,
Or does the ox low over its fodder?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:6 - Can flavorless food be eaten without salt?
Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:7 - My soul refuses to touch them;
They are as loathsome food to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:8 - “Oh, that I might have my request,
That God would grant me the thing that I long for!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:9 - That it would please God to crush me,
That He would loose His hand and cut me off!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:10 - Then I would still have comfort;
Though in anguish I would exult,
He will not spare;
For I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:11 - “What strength do I have, that I should hope?
And what is my end, that I should prolong my life?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:12 - Is my strength the strength of stones?
Or is my flesh bronze?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:13 - Is my help not within me?
And is success driven from me?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:14 - “To him who is afflicted, kindness should be shown by his friend,
Even though he forsakes the fear of the Almighty.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:15 - My brothers have dealt deceitfully like a brook,
Like the streams of the brooks that pass away,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:16 - Which are dark because of the ice,
And into which the snow vanishes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:17 - When it is warm, they cease to flow;
When it is hot, they vanish from their place.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:18 - The paths of their way turn aside,
They go nowhere and perish.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:19 - The caravans of Tema look,
The travelers of Sheba hope for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:20 - They are disappointed because they were confident;
They come there and are confused.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:21 - For now you are nothing,
You see terror and are afraid.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:22 - Did I ever say, ‘Bring something to me’?
Or, ‘Offer 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 oppressors’?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:24 - “Teach me, and I will hold my tongue;
Cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:25 - How forceful are right words!
But what does your arguing prove?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:26 - Do you intend to rebuke my words,
And the speeches of a desperate one, which are as wind?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:27 - Yes, you overwhelm the fatherless,
And you undermine your friend.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:28 - Now therefore, be pleased to look at me;
For I would never lie to your face.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:29 - Yield now, let there be no injustice!
Yes, concede, my righteousness still stands!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 6:30 - Is there injustice on my tongue?
Cannot my taste discern the unsavory?
