Job 30:21-31 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
21 You turn on me ruthlessly;1 with the might of your hand2 you attack me.3 22 You snatch me up and drive me before the wind;4 you toss me about in the storm.5 23 I know you will bring me down to death,6 to the place appointed for all the living.7 24 "Surely no one lays a hand on a broken man8 when he cries for help in his distress.9 25 Have I not wept for those in trouble?10 Has not my soul grieved for the poor?11 26 Yet when I hoped for good, evil came; when I looked for light, then came darkness.12 27 The churning inside me never stops;13 days of suffering confront me.14 28 I go about blackened,15 but not by the sun; I stand up in the assembly and cry for help.16 29 I have become a brother of jackals,17 a companion of owls.18 30 My skin grows black19 and peels;20 my body burns with fever.21 31 My harp is tuned to mourning,22 and my flute23 to the sound of wailing.
