Then Job answered:
I have heard many things like these. You are all miserable comforters.a3
Is there [no] end to your emptyb words? What provokes you that you continue testifying?
If you were in my place I could also talk like you. I could string words together against you and shake my head at you, [but I wouldn't].
I would encourage you with my mouth, and the consolation from my lips would bring relief.c6
Even if I speak, my suffering is not relieved, and if I hold back, what have I lost?
