Or what plagues you that you answer?
4“I too could speak like you,
▼ Lit your soul were in place of my soulI were in your place.
I could compose words against you
And f shake my head at you.
5“I could strengthen you with my mouth,
And the solace of my lips could lessen your pain.
Job Says God Shattered Him6“If I speak g my pain is not lessened,
And if I hold back, what has left me?
7“But now He has h exhausted me;
You have laid i waste all my company.

j It has become a witness;
And my k leanness rises up against me,
It testifies to my face.

▼ Lit borne a grudge against mehunted me down,
He has n gnashed at me with His teeth;
My o adversary ▼
▼ Lit sharpens his eyesglares at me.

They have ▼
▼ Lit struck, s slapped me on the cheek with contempt;
They have t massed themselves against me.
11“God hands me over to ruffians
And tosses me into the hands of the wicked.
12“I was at ease, but u He shattered me,
And He has grasped me by the neck and shaken me to pieces;
He has also set me up as His v target.
13“His w arrows surround me.
Without mercy He splits my kidneys open;
He pours out x my gall on the ground.
14“He y breaks through me with breach after breach;
He z runs at me like a warrior.
15“I have sewed aa sackcloth over my skin
And ab thrust my horn in the dust.
16“My face is flushed from ac weeping,
ad And deep darkness is on my eyelids,
17Although there is no ae violence in my hands,
And af my prayer is pure.
18“O earth, do not cover my blood,
And let there be no resting place for my cry.
19“Even now, behold ag my witness is in heaven,
And my ▼
▼ Or witnessadvocate is ai on high.
20“My friends are my scoffers;
aj My eye ▼
▼ Or dripsweeps to God.
21“O that a man might plead with God
As a man with his neighbor!
22“For when a few years are past,
I shall go the way al of no return.
