Then Job answered and said:
"I have heard 1many such things; 2miserable comforters are you all.
Shall 3windy words have an end? Or what provokes you that you answer?
I also could speak as you do, if you were in my place; I could join words together against you and 4shake my head at you.
I could strengthen you with my mouth, and the solace of my lips would assuage your pain.
"If I speak, my pain is not assuaged, and if I forbear, how much of it leaves me?
Surely now God has worn me out; 5he hasa made desolate all my company.
