Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:1 - I am the man who has seen affliction under the rod of his wrath;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:2 - he has driven and brought me into darkness without any light;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:3 - surely against me he turns his hand again and again the whole day long.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:4 - He has made my flesh and my skin waste away, and broken my bones;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:5 - he has besieged and enveloped me with bitterness and tribulation;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:6 - he has made me dwell in darkness like the dead of long ago.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:7 - He has walled me about so that I cannot escape; he has put heavy chains on me;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:8 - though I call and cry for help, he shuts out my prayer;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:9 - he has blocked my ways with hewn stones, he has made my paths crooked.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:10 - He is to me like a bear lying in wait, like a lion in hiding;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:11 - he led me off my way and tore me to pieces; he has made me desolate;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:12 - he bent his bow and set me as a mark for his arrow.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:13 - He drove into my heart the arrows of his quiver;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:14 - I have become the laughingstock of all peoples, the burden of their songs all day long.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:15 - He has filled me with bitterness, he has sated me with wormwood.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:16 - He has made my teeth grind on gravel, and made me cower in ashes;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:17 - my soul is bereft of peace, I have forgotten what happiness is;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:18 - so I say, "Gone is my glory, and my expectation from the LORD."

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:19 - Remember my affliction and my bitterness, the wormwood and the gall!

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:20 - My soul continually thinks of it and is bowed down within me.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:21 - But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:22 - The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:23 - they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:24 - "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:28 - Let him sit alone in silence when he has laid it on him;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:29 - let him put his mouth in the dust-- there may yet be hope;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:30 - let him give his cheek to the smiter, and be filled with insults.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:31 - For the Lord will not cast off for ever,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:32 - but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:33 - for he does not willingly afflict or grieve the sons of men.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:34 - To crush under foot all the prisoners of the earth,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:35 - to turn aside the right of a man in the presence of the Most High,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:36 - to subvert a man in his cause, the Lord does not approve.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:37 - Who has commanded and it came to pass, unless the Lord has ordained it?

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:38 - Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and evil come?

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:39 - Why should a living man complain, a man, about the punishment of his sins?

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:55 - "I called on thy name, O LORD, from the depths of the pit;

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 3:56 - thou didst hear my plea, 'Do not close thine ear to my cry for help!'
