Jó 6

1 But Job answered and said,

2 O that my grief were thoroughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together!laid: Heb. lifted up

3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed words…: that is, I want words to express my grief

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.

8 O that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!the thing…: Heb. my expectation

9 Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!

10 Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

11 What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is my end, that I should prolong my life?

12 Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?of brass: Heb. brasen?

13 Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?

18 The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.

22 Did I say, Bring to me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?

23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy’s hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?

24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand how I have erred.

26 Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?

27 Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your overwhelm: Heb. ye cause to fall upon

28 Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident to you if I lie.evident…: Heb. before your face
