Job 6

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

JOB 6:1 Then Job answered,

JOB 6:2 "Oh that my anguish were weighed, And all my calamity laid in the balances!

JOB 6:3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the seas, Therefore have my words been rash.

JOB 6:4 For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, My spirit drinks up their poison. The terrors of God set themselves in array against me.

JOB 6:5 Does the wild donkey bray when he has grass? Or does the ox low over his fodder?

JOB 6:6 Can that which has no flavor be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?

JOB 6:7 My soul refuses to touch them; They are as loathsome food to me.

JOB 6:8 "Oh that I might have my request; That God would grant the thing that I long for!

JOB 6:9 Even that it would please God to crush me; That he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!

JOB 6:10 Be it still my consolation, Yes, let me exult in pain that doesn't spare, That I have not denied the words of the Holy One.

JOB 6:11 What is my strength, that I should wait? What is my end, that I should be patient?

JOB 6:12 Is my strength the strength of stones? Or is my flesh of brass?

JOB 6:13 Isn't it that I have no help in me, That wisdom is driven quite from me?

JOB 6:14 "To him who is ready to faint, kindness should be shown from his friend; Even to him who forsakes the fear of the Almighty.

JOB 6:15 My brothers have dealt deceitfully as a brook, As the channel of brooks that pass away;

JOB 6:16 Which are black by reason of the ice, in which the snow hides itself:

JOB 6:17 In the dry season, they vanish. When it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.

JOB 6:18 The caravans that travel beside them turn aside; They go up into the waste, and perish.

JOB 6:19 The caravans of Tema looked, The companies of Sheba waited for them.

JOB 6:20 They were distressed because they were confident; They came there, and were confounded.

JOB 6:21 For now you are nothing. You see a terror, and are afraid.

JOB 6:22 Did I say, 'Give to me?' Or, 'Offer a present for me from your substance?'

JOB 6:23 Or, 'Deliver me from the adversary's hand?' Or, 'Redeem me from the hand of the oppressors?'

JOB 6:24 "Teach me, and I will hold my peace; Cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

JOB 6:25 How forcible are words of uprightness! But your reproof, what does it reprove?

JOB 6:26 Do you intend to reprove words, Seeing that the speeches of one who is desperate are as wind?

JOB 6:27 Yes, you would even cast lots for the fatherless, And make merchandise of your friend.

JOB 6:28 Now therefore be pleased to look at me, For surely I shall not lie to your face.

JOB 6:29 Please return. Let there be no injustice; Yes, return again, my cause is righteous.

JOB 6:30 Is there injustice on my tongue? Can't my taste discern mischievous things?
