Job 16

Job 16:1   Then Job answered and said,
Job 16:2   I have heard many such things: Miserable comforters are ye all.
Job 16:3   Shall vain words have an end? Or what provoketh thee that thou answerest?
Job 16:4   I also could speak as ye do; If your soul were in my soul's stead, I could join words together against you, And shake my head at you.
Job 16:5   But I would strengthen you with my mouth, And the solace of my lips would assuage your grief.
Job 16:6   Though I speak, my grief is not assuaged; And though I forbear, what am I eased?
Job 16:7   But now he hath made me weary: Thou hast made desolate all my company.
Job 16:8   And thou hast laid fast hold on me, which is a witness against me: And my leanness riseth up against me, It testifieth to my face.
Job 16:9   He hath torn me in his wrath, and persecuted me; He hath gnashed upon me with his teeth: Mine adversary sharpeneth his eyes upon me.
Job 16:10   They have gaped upon me with their mouth; They have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully: They gather themselves together against me.
Job 16:11   God delivereth me to the ungodly, And casteth me into the hands of the wicked.
Job 16:12   I was at ease, and he brake me asunder; Yea, he hath taken me by the neck, and dashed me to pieces: He hath also set me up for his mark.
Job 16:13   His archers compass me round about; He cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; He poureth out my gall upon the ground.
Job 16:14   He breaketh me with breach upon breach; He runneth upon me like a giant.
Job 16:15   I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, And have laid my horn in the dust.
Job 16:16   My face is red with weeping, And on my eyelids is the shadow of death;
Job 16:17   Although there is no violence in my hands, And my prayer is pure.
Job 16:18   O earth, cover not thou my blood, And let my cry have no resting -place.
Job 16:19   Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven, And he that voucheth for me is on high.
Job 16:20   My friends scoff at me: But mine eye poureth out tears unto God,
Job 16:21   That he would maintain the right of a man with God, And of a son of man with his neighbor!
Job 16:22   For when a few years are come, I shall go the way whence I shall not return.
