Then JobH347 answeredH6030 and said,H559
HowH5704 longH5704 will you vexH3013 my soul,H5315 and breakH1792 me in pieces with words?H4405
TheseH2088 tenH6235 timesH6471 have you reproachedH3637 me: you are not ashamedH954 that you make yourselves strangeH1970 to me.
And be it indeedH551 that I have erred,H7683 my errorH4879 remainsH3885 with myself.
IfH518 indeedH551 you will magnifyH1431 yourselves againstH5921 me, and pleadH3198 againstH5921 me my reproach:H2781
KnowH3045 nowH645 that GodH433 has overthrownH5791 me, and has compassedH5362 me with his net.H4685
Behold,H2005 I cryH6817 out of wrong,H2555 but I am not heard:H6030 I cryH7768 aloud,H7768 but there is noH3808 judgment.H4941
He has fencedH1443 up my wayH734 that I cannotH3808 pass,H5674 and he has setH7760 darknessH2822 in my paths.H5410
He has strippedH6584 me of my glory,H3519 and takenH5493 the crownH5850 from my head.H7218
He has destroyedH5422 me on everyH5437 side,H5439 and I am gone:H3212 and my hopeH8615 has he removedH5265 like a tree.H6086
He has also kindledH2734 his wrathH639 againstH5921 me, and he countsH2803 me to him as one of his enemies.H6862
His troopsH1416 comeH935 together,H3162 and raiseH5549 up their wayH1870 againstH5921 me, and encampH2583 roundH5439 about my tabernacle.H168
He has put my brothersH251 farH7350 from me, and my acquaintanceH3045 are trulyH389 estrangedH2114 from me.
My kinsfolkH7138 have failed,H2308 and my familiarH3045 friends have forgottenH7911 me.
They that dwellH1481 in my house,H1004 and my maids,H519 countH2803 me for a stranger:H2114 I am an alienH5237 in their sight.H5869
I calledH7121 my servant,H5650 and he gave me noH3808 answer;H6030 I entreatedH2603 him with my mouth.H6310
My breathH7307 is strangeH2114 to my wife,H802 though I entreatedH2589 for the children'sH1121 sake of my own body.H990
Yes,H1571 young children despisedH3988 me; I arose,H6965 and they spokeH1696 against me.
AllH3605 my inwardH5475 friendsH4962 abhorredH8581 me: and they whom I lovedH157 are turnedH2015 against me.
My boneH6106 sticksH1692 to my skinH5785 and to my flesh,H1320 and I am escapedH4422 with the skinH5785 of my teeth.H8127
Have pityH2603 on me, have pityH2603 on me, O you my friends;H7453 for the handH3027 of GodH433 has touchedH5060 me.
WhyH4100 do you persecuteH7291 me as God,H410 and are not satisfiedH7646 with my flesh?H1320
Oh that my wordsH4405 were nowH645 written!H3789 oh that they were printedH2710 in a book!H5612
That they were gravenH2672 with an ironH1270 penH5842 and leadH5777 in the rockH6697 for ever!H5703
For I knowH3045 that my redeemerH1350 lives,H2416 and that he shall standH6965 at the latterH314 day on the earth:H6083
And though afterH310 my skinH5785 worms destroyH5362 thisH2063 body, yet in my fleshH1320 shall I seeH2372 God:H433
WhomH834 I shall seeH2372 for myself, and my eyesH5869 shall behold,H7200 and not another;H2114 though my reinsH3629 be consumedH3615 withinH2436 me.
But you should say,H559 WhyH4100 persecuteH7291 we him, seeing the rootH8328 of the matterH1697 is foundH4672 in me?
Be you afraidH1481 of the sword:H2719 for wrathH2534 brings the punishmentsH5771 of the sword,H2719 that you may knowH3045 there is a judgment.H1779
