Job 6:1--7:21

But Job
<0347>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Oh that
<03863>
my grief
<03708>
were throughly
<08254> (8800)
weighed
<08254> (8735)_,
and my calamity
<01942> (8675) <01962>
laid
<05375> (8799)
in the balances
<03976>
together
<03162>_!
{laid: Heb. lifted up}
For now it would be heavier
<03513> (8799)
than the sand
<02344>
of the sea
<03220>_:
therefore my words
<01697>
are swallowed up
<03886> (8804)_.
{my words...: that is, I want words to express my grief}
For the arrows
<02671>
of the Almighty
<07706>
[are] within
<05978>
me, the poison
<02534>
whereof drinketh up
<08354> (8802)
my spirit
<07307>_:
the terrors
<01161>
of God
<0433>
do set themselves in array
<06186> (8799)
against me.
Doth the wild ass
<06501>
bray
<05101> (8799)
when he hath grass
<01877>_?
or loweth
<01600> (8799)
the ox
<07794>
over his fodder
<01098>_?
{when he...: Heb. at grass?}
Can that which is unsavoury
<08602>
be eaten
<0398> (8735)
without salt
<04417>_?
or is there
<03426>
[any] taste
<02940>
in the white
<07388>
of an egg
<02495>_?
The things [that] my soul
<05315>
refused
<03985> (8765)
to touch
<05060> (8800)
[are] as my sorrowful
<01741>
meat
<03899>_.
Oh that I might have
<0935> (8799)
my request
<07596>_;
and that God
<0433>
would grant
<05414> (8799)
[me] the thing that I long for
<08615>_!
{the thing...: Heb. my expectation}
Even that it would please
<02974> (8686)
God
<0433>
to destroy
<01792> (8762)
me; that he would let loose
<05425> (8686)
his hand
<03027>_,
and cut me off
<01214> (8762)_!
Then should I yet have comfort
<05165>_;
yea, I would harden
<05539> (8762)
myself in sorrow
<02427>_:
let him not spare
<02550> (8799)_;
for I have not concealed
<03582> (8765)
the words
<0561>
of the Holy One
<06918>_.
What [is] my strength
<03581>_,
that I should hope
<03176> (8762)_?
and what [is] mine end
<07093>_,
that I should prolong
<0748> (8686)
my life
<05315>_?
[Is] my strength
<03581>
the strength
<03581>
of stones
<068>_?
or [is] my flesh
<01320>
of brass
<05153>_?
{of brass: Heb. brasen?}
[Is] not my help
<05833>
in me? and is wisdom
<08454>
driven quite
<05080> (8738)
from me?
To him that is afflicted
<04523>
pity
<02617>
[should be shewed] from his friend
<07453>_;
but he forsaketh
<05800> (8799)
the fear
<03374>
of the Almighty
<07706>_.
{is afflicted: Heb. melteth}
My brethren
<0251>
have dealt deceitfully
<0898> (8804)
as a brook
<05158>_,
[and] as the stream
<0650>
of brooks
<05158>
they pass away
<05674> (8799)_;
Which are blackish
<06937> (8802)
by reason of the ice
<07140>_,
[and] wherein the snow
<07950>
is hid
<05956> (8691)_:
What time
<06256>
they wax warm
<02215> (8792)_,
they vanish
<06789> (8738)_:
when it is hot
<02527>_,
they are consumed out
<01846> (8738)
of their place
<04725>_.
{vanish: Heb. are cut off} {when...: Heb. in the heat thereof} {consumed: Heb. extinguished}
The paths
<0734>
of their way
<01870>
are turned aside
<03943> (8735)_;
they go
<05927> (8799)
to nothing
<08414>_,
and perish
<06> (8799)_.
The troops
<0734>
of Tema
<08485>
looked
<05027> (8689)_,
the companies
<01979>
of Sheba
<07614>
waited
<06960> (8765)
for them.
They were confounded
<0954> (8804)
because they had hoped
<0982> (8804)_;
they came
<0935> (8804)
thither, and were ashamed
<02659> (8799)_.
For now ye are nothing; ye see
<07200> (8799)
[my] casting down
<02866>_,
and are afraid
<03372> (8799)_.
{ye are...: or, ye are like to them: Heb. to it} {nothing: Heb. not}
Did I say
<0559> (8804)_,
Bring
<03051> (8798)
unto me? or, Give a reward
<07809> (8798)
for me of your substance
<03581>_?
Or, Deliver
<04422> (8761)
me from the enemy's
<06862>
hand
<03027>_?
or, Redeem
<06299> (8799)
me from the hand
<03027>
of the mighty
<06184>_?
Teach
<03384> (8685)
me, and I will hold my tongue
<02790> (8686)_:
and cause me to understand
<0995> (8685)
wherein I have erred
<07686> (8804)_.
How forcible
<04834> (8738)
are right
<03476>
words
<0561>_!
but what doth your arguing
<03198> (8687)
reprove
<03198> (8686)_?
Do ye imagine
<02803> (8799)
to reprove
<03198> (8687)
words
<04405>_,
and the speeches
<0561>
of one that is desperate
<02976> (8737)_,
[which are] as wind
<07307>_?
Yea, ye overwhelm
<05307> (8686)
the fatherless
<03490>_,
and ye dig
<03738> (8799)
[a pit] for your friend
<07453>_.
{ye overwhelm: Heb. ye cause to fall upon}
Now therefore be content
<02974> (8685)_,
look
<06437> (8798)
upon me; for [it is] evident
<06440>
unto you if I lie
<03576> (8762)_.
{evident...: Heb. before your face}
Return
<07725> (8798)_,
I pray you, let it not be iniquity
<05766>_;
yea, return again
<07725> (8798)_,
my righteousness
<06664>
[is] in it. {in it: that is, in this matter}
Is there
<03426>
iniquity
<05766>
in my tongue
<03956>_?
cannot my taste
<02441>
discern
<0995> (8799)
perverse things
<01942>_?
{my taste: Heb. my palate}
[Is there] not an appointed time
<06635>
to man
<0582>
upon earth
<0776>_?
[are not] his days
<03117>
also like the days
<03117>
of an hireling
<07916>_?
{an appointed...: or, a warfare}
As a servant
<05650>
earnestly desireth
<07602> (8799)
the shadow
<06738>_,
and as an hireling
<07916>
looketh
<06960> (8762)
for [the reward of] his work
<06467>_:
{earnestly...: Heb. gapeth after}
So am I made to possess
<05157> (8717)
months
<03391>
of vanity
<07723>_,
and wearisome
<05999>
nights
<03915>
are appointed
<04487> (8765)
to me.
When I lie down
<07901> (8804)_,
I say
<0559> (8804)_,
When shall I arise
<06965> (8799)_,
and the night
<06153>
be gone
<04059>_?
and I am full
<07646> (8804)
of tossings to and fro
<05076>
unto the dawning of the day
<05399>_.
{the night...: Heb. the evening be measured?}
My flesh
<01320>
is clothed
<03847> (8804)
with worms
<07415>
and clods
<01487>
of dust
<06083>_;
my skin
<05785>
is broken
<07280> (8804)_,
and become loathsome
<03988> (8735)_.
My days
<03117>
are swifter
<07043> (8804)
than a weaver's shuttle
<0708>_,
and are spent
<03615> (8799)
without
<0657>
hope
<08615>_.
O remember
<02142> (8798)
that my life
<02416>
[is] wind
<07307>_:
mine eye
<05869>
shall no more
<07725> (8799)
see
<07200> (8800)
good
<02896>_.
{shall...: Heb. shall not return} {see: to see, that is, to enjoy}
The eye
<05869>
of him that hath seen
<07210>
me shall see
<07789> (8799)
me no [more]: thine eyes
<05869>
[are] upon me, and I [am] not. {I am...: that is, I can live no longer}
[As] the cloud
<06051>
is consumed
<03615> (8804)
and vanisheth away
<03212> (8799)_:
so he that goeth down
<03381> (8802)
to the grave
<07585>
shall come up
<05927> (8799)
no [more].
He shall return
<07725> (8799)
no more to his house
<01004>_,
neither shall his place
<04725>
know
<05234> (8686)
him any more.
Therefore I will not refrain
<02820> (8799)
my mouth
<06310>_;
I will speak
<01696> (8762)
in the anguish
<06862>
of my spirit
<07307>_;
I will complain
<07878> (8799)
in the bitterness
<04751>
of my soul
<05315>_.
[Am] I a sea
<03220>_,
or a whale
<08577>_,
that thou settest
<07760> (8799)
a watch
<04929>
over me?
When I say
<0559> (8804)_,
My bed
<06210>
shall comfort
<05162> (8762)
me, my couch
<04904>
shall ease
<05375> (8799)
my complaint
<07879>_;
Then thou scarest
<02865> (8765)
me with dreams
<02472>_,
and terrifiest
<01204> (8762)
me through visions
<02384>_:
So that my soul
<05315>
chooseth
<0977> (8799)
strangling
<04267>_,
[and] death
<04194>
rather than my life
<06106>_.
{life: Heb. bones}
I loathe
<03988> (8804)
[it]; I would not live
<02421> (8799)
alway
<05769>_:
let me alone
<02308> (8798)_;
for my days
<03117>
[are] vanity
<01892>_.
What [is] man
<0582>_,
that thou shouldest magnify
<01431> (8762)
him? and that thou shouldest set
<07896> (8799)
thine heart
<03820>
upon him?
And [that] thou shouldest visit
<06485> (8799)
him every morning
<01242>_,
[and] try
<0974> (8799)
him every moment
<07281>_?
How long
<04100>
wilt thou not depart
<08159> (8799)
from me, nor let me alone
<07503> (8686)
till I swallow down
<01104> (8800)
my spittle
<07536>_?
I have sinned
<02398> (8804)_;
what shall I do
<06466> (8799)
unto thee, O thou preserver
<05341> (8802)
of men
<0120>_?
why hast thou set
<07760> (8804)
me as a mark
<04645>
against thee, so that I am a burden
<04853>
to myself?
And why dost thou not pardon
<05375> (8799)
my transgression
<06588>_,
and take away
<05674> (8686)
mine iniquity
<05771>_?
for now shall I sleep
<07901> (8799)
in the dust
<06083>_;
and thou shalt seek me in the morning
<07836> (8765)_,
but I [shall] not [be].
