Job Feels Insulted

1 Then Job aresponded , 2 "How long will you torment bme And crush me with words ? 3 "These ten times you have insulted me; You are not ashamed to wrong me. 4 "Even if I have truly erred, My error lodges with me. 5 "If indeed you 1vaunt yourselves against me And prove my disgrace to me, 6 Know then that 2God has wronged me And has closed 3His net around me.

Everything Is against Him

7 "Behold, 4I cry, 'Violence !' but I get no answer ; I shout for help, but there is no justice. 8 "He has 5walled up my way so that I cannot pass, And He has put 6darkness on my paths. 9 "He has 7stripped my honor from me And removed the 8crown from my head. 10 "He 9breaks me down on every side, and I am gone ; And He has uprooted my 10hope 11like a tree. 11 "He has also 12kindled His anger against me And 13considered me as His enemy. 12 "His 14troops come together, And 15build up their cway against me And camp around my tent. 13 "He has 16removed my brothers far from me, And my 17acquaintances are completely estranged from me. 14 "My relatives have failed, And my 18intimate friends have forgotten me. 15 "Those who live in my house and my maids consider me a stranger. I am a foreigner in their sight. 16 "I call to my servant, but he does not answer ; I have to implore him with my mouth. 17 "My breath is doffensive to my wife, And I am loathsome to my own brothers . 18 "Even young children despise me; I rise up and they speak against me. 19 "All emy 19associates abhor me, And those I love have turned against me. 20 "My 20bone clings to my skin and my flesh, And I have escaped only by the skin of my teeth. 21 "Pity me, pity me, O you my friends, For the 21hand of God has struck me. 22 "Why do you 22persecute me as God does, And are not satisfied with my flesh ?

Job Says, ``My Redeemer Lives"

23 "Oh that my words were written ! Oh that they were 23inscribed in a book ! 24 "That with an iron stylus and lead They were engraved in the rock forever ! 25 "As for me, I know that 24my fRedeemer lives, And gat the last He will take His stand on the hearth. 26 "Even after my skin iis destroyed, Yet from my flesh I shall 25see God ; 27 Whom I jmyself shall behold, And whom my eyes will see and not another. My kheart 26faints lwithin me! 28 "If you say, 'How shall we 27persecute him?' And 'mWhat pretext for a case against him can we find ?' 29 "Then be afraid of 28the sword for yourselves, For wrath brings the punishment of the sword, So that you may know 29there is judgment."
