Job 6


6:1 But Job answered and said,
6:2 Oh that my grief were thoroughly weighed, and my calamity
 laid in the balances together!
6:3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea:
 therefore my words are swallowed up.
6:4 For the arrows of the Almighty [are] within me, the poison
 of which drinketh up my spirit: the terrors of God set
 themselves in array against me.
6:5 Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox
 over his fodder?
6:6 Can that which is unsavory be eaten without salt? or is
 there [any] taste in the white of an egg?
6:7 The things [that] my soul refused to touch [are] as my
 sorrowful food.
6:8 Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant
 [me] the thing that I long for!
6:9 Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would
 let loose his hand, and cut me off!
6:10 Then should I yet have comfort; yes, I would harden myself
 in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the
 words of the Holy One.
6:11 What [is] my strength, that I should hope? and what [is] my
 end, that I should prolong my life?
6:12 [Is] my strength the strength of stones? or [is] my flesh
 of brass?
6:13 [Is] not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?
6:14 To him that is afflicted pity [should be shown] from his
 friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
6:15 My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, [and] as the
 stream of brooks they pass away;
6:16 Which are blackish by reason of the ice, [and] in which the
 snow is hid:
6:17 In the time when they become warm, they vanish: when it is
 hot, they are consumed out of their place.
6:18 The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to
 nothing, and perish.
6:19 The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited
 for them.
6:20 They were confounded because they had hoped; they came
 thither, and were ashamed.
6:21 For now ye are nothing: ye see [my] casting down, and are
 afraid.
6:22 Did I say, Bring to me? or Give a reward for me of your
 substance?
6:23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from
 the hand of the mighty?
6:24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to
 understand in what I have erred.
6:25 How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing
 reprove?
6:26 Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one
 that is desperate, [which are] as wind?
6:27 Yes, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig [a pit] for
 your friend.
6:28 Now therefore be content, look upon me; for [it is] evident
 to you if I lie.
6:29 Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yes, return
 again, my righteousness [is] in it.
6:30 Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern
 perverse things?
