"If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales!1
It would surely outweigh the sand2 of the seas-- no wonder my words have been impetuous.3
The arrows4 of the Almighty5 are in me,6 my spirit drinks7 in their poison;8 God's terrors9 are marshaled against me.10
Does a wild donkey11 bray12 when it has grass, or an ox bellow when it has fodder?13
Is tasteless food eaten without salt, or is there flavor in the white of an egg ?14
I refuse to touch it; such food makes me ill.15
