1 Then Job answered, 1 Then Job replied:
2 "I have heard many such things; Sorry comforters are you all. 2 "I have heard many things like these; miserable comforters are you all!
3 "Is there no limit to windy words? Or what plagues you that you answer? 3 Will your long-winded speeches never end? What ails you that you keep on arguing?
4 "I too could speak like you, If I were in your place. I could compose words against you And shake my head at you. 4 I also could speak like you, if you were in my place; I could make fine speeches against you and shake my head at you.
5 "I could strengthen you with my mouth, And the solace of my lips could lessen your pain. 5 But my mouth would encourage you; comfort from my lips would bring you relief.
