Job's Friends Are Bad Comforters1 And undertaking, Job says, 2 I have heard [2such things 1many]. [3comforters 2bad 1You are all]. 3 For what, [2order 1is there] in words of wind? or what shall it trouble you that you answer? 4 I also [2as 3you 1could speak] if [3laid 1indeed 2your life] instead of my life. So then I shall assail against you with words, and I will shake [2as 3you 1my head]. 5 And may that there be strength in my mouth, [4the movement 1then 5of my lips 2I would not 3spare]. 6 For if I shall speak [2shall not 3ache 1my wound]; and if also I keep silent, how less will I be pierced? 7 But now, [2me exhausted 1he has made], [2moron 1a festering], and it took hold of me. 8 For [2a testimony 1I became], and [2rose up 3in 4me 1my lie]; according to my face it was answered. 9 In anger the one dealing with me cast me down; he gnashed against me with his teeth; the arrows of his marauders [2upon 3me 1have fallen]; 10 [3points 4of his eyes 1he assailed me 2with the sharp]; he smote me onto my knees; and with one accord they ran upon me. 11 [4delivered 1For 5me 2the 3 lord] into the hands of the unjust, and unto the impious he tossed me. 12 Making peace he effaced me; taking me by the hair of the head he plucked it out; he placed me as if an exemplar. 13 They encircled me with lances, casting into my kidney, not sparing; they poured out [2onto 3the 4earth 1my bile]. 14 They threw me down, downfall upon downfall; they ran against me prevailing; 15 [2sackcloth 1they sewed] upon my hide; and my strength [2in 3the ground 1was extinguished]. 16 My belly burns from weeping, and upon my eyelids a shadow of death. 17 [4unjust thing 1And 3not one 2there was] in my hands, [3vow 1and 2my] is pure. 18 O earth, you should not cover over the blood of my flesh, nor may there be a place for my cry. 19 And now behold, [2is in 3the heavens 1my witness], and my joint witness is in the highest. 20 May [3arrive 1my 2supplication] unto the lord, and before him may [3drip tears 1my 2eye]. 21 And may it be reproof to man before the lord, and to a son of man to his neighbor. 22 [3years 1But 2counted] have come; and in the way in which I shall not be returned -- I shall go.
