Job 6:2-4

2 “Oh that my vexation were weighed,
and all my calamity laid in the balances!
3For then it would be heavier than a  the sand of the sea;
therefore my words have been rash.
4For b  the arrows of the Almighty are in me;
my spirit drinks their poison;
the terrors of God are arrayed against me.

Job 6:26

26Do you think that you can reprove words,
when the speech of a despairing man is c  wind?

Job 7:11

11 Therefore I will not d  restrain my mouth;
I will speak in the anguish of my spirit;
I will e  complain in f  the bitterness of my soul.

Job 10:15-16

15 g  If I am guilty, woe to me!
If I am h  in the right, I cannot lift up my head,
for I am filled with disgrace
and i  look on my affliction.
16And were my head lifted up
Hebrew lacks  my head
you would hunt me like k  a lion
and again work l  wonders against me.

Job 16:6-16

6 “If I speak, my pain is not assuaged,
and if I forbear, how much of it leaves me?
7Surely now God has worn me out;
m  he has
Hebrew you have; also verse 8
made desolate all my company.
8And he has shriveled me up,
which is o  a witness against me,
and my p  leanness has risen up against me;
it testifies to my face.
9He has q  torn me in his wrath r  and hated me;
he has s  gnashed his teeth at me;
my adversary sharpens his eyes against me.
10Men have t  gaped at me with their mouth;
they have u  struck me insolently on the cheek;
they v  mass themselves together against me.
11God gives me up to the ungodly
and casts me into the hands of the wicked.
12I was at ease, and he broke me apart;
he seized me by the neck and dashed me to pieces;
he set me up as his w  target;
13his x  archers surround me.
He slashes open my kidneys y  and does not spare;
he z  pours out my gall on the ground.
14He breaks me with aa  breach upon breach;
he ab  runs upon me like a warrior.
15I have sewed ac  sackcloth upon my skin
and have laid ad  my strength ae  in the dust.
16My face is red with weeping,
and on my eyelids is af  deep darkness,

Psalms 32:3-5

3 For when I kept silent, my ag  bones wasted away
through my ah  groaning all day long.
4For day and night your ai  hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was dried up
Hebrew  my vitality was changed
as by the heat of summer.  Selah
5 I ak  acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I al  will confess my transgressions to the  Lord,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.  Selah

Isaiah 38:15

15What shall I say? For he has spoken to me,
and he himself has done it.
am  I walk slowly all my years
because of the bitterness of my soul.

Isaiah 38:17

17 an  Behold, it was for my welfare
that I had great bitterness;
ao  but in love you have delivered my life
from the pit of destruction,
ap  for you have cast all my sins
behind your back.
