NIV 2 "I have heard many things like these; miserable comforters are you all! CSB 3 Is there [no] end to your empty words? What provokes you that you continue testifying? NIV 3 Will your long-winded speeches never end? What ails you that you keep on arguing? CSB 4 If you were in my place I could also talk like you. I could string words together against you and shake my head at you, [but I wouldn't]. NIV 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. CSB 5 I would encourage you with my mouth, and the consolation from my lips would bring relief. NIV 5 But my mouth would encourage you; comfort from my lips would bring you relief. CSB 6 Even if I speak, my suffering is not relieved, and if I hold back, what have I lost? NIV 6 "Yet if I speak, my pain is not relieved; and if I refrain, it does not go away. CSB 7 Surely He has now exhausted me. You have devastated my entire family. NIV 7 Surely, O God, you have worn me out; you have devastated my entire household.
