Job 6

NLT 1 Then Job spoke again: NIV 1 Then Job replied: NLT 2 “If my misery could be weighed and my troubles be put on the scales, NIV 2 “If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales! NLT 3 they would outweigh all the sands of the sea. That is why I spoke impulsively. NIV 3 It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas— no wonder my words have been impetuous. NLT 4 For the Almighty has struck me down with his arrows. Their poison infects my spirit. God’s terrors are lined up against me. NIV 4 The arrows of the Almighty are in me, my spirit drinks in their poison; God’s terrors are marshaled against me. NLT 5 Don’t I have a right to complain? Don’t wild donkeys bray when they find no grass, and oxen bellow when they have no food? NIV 5 Does a wild donkey bray when it has grass, or an ox bellow when it has fodder? NLT 6 Don’t people complain about unsalted food? Does anyone want the tasteless white of an egg? NIV 6 Is tasteless food eaten without salt, or is there flavor in the sap of the mallow ? NLT 7 My appetite disappears when I look at it; I gag at the thought of eating it! NIV 7 I refuse to touch it; such food makes me ill. NLT 8 “Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant my desire. NIV 8 “Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant what I hope for, NLT 9 I wish he would crush me. I wish he would reach out his hand and kill me. NIV 9 that God would be willing to crush me, to let loose his hand and cut off my life! NLT 10 At least I can take comfort in this: Despite the pain, I have not denied the words of the Holy One. NIV 10 Then I would still have this consolation— my joy in unrelenting pain— that I had not denied the words of the Holy One. NLT 11 But I don’t have the strength to endure. I have nothing to live for. NIV 11 “What strength do I have, that I should still hope? What prospects, that I should be patient? NLT 12 Do I have the strength of a stone? Is my body made of bronze? NIV 12 Do I have the strength of stone? Is my flesh bronze? NLT 13 No, I am utterly helpless, without any chance of success. NIV 13 Do I have any power to help myself, now that success has been driven from me? NLT 14 “One should be kind to a fainting friend, but you accuse me without any fear of the Almighty. NIV 14 “Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty. NLT 15 My brothers, you have proved as unreliable as a seasonal brook that overflows its banks in the spring NIV 15 But my brothers are as undependable as intermittent streams, as the streams that overflow NLT 16 when it is swollen with ice and melting snow. NIV 16 when darkened by thawing ice and swollen with melting snow, NLT 17 But when the hot weather arrives, the water disappears. The brook vanishes in the heat. NIV 17 but that stop flowing in the dry season, and in the heat vanish from their channels. NLT 18 The caravans turn aside to be refreshed, but there is nothing to drink, so they die. NIV 18 Caravans turn aside from their routes; they go off into the wasteland and perish. NLT 19 The caravans from Tema search for this water; the travelers from Sheba hope to find it. NIV 19 The caravans of Tema look for water, the traveling merchants of Sheba look in hope. NLT 20 They count on it but are disappointed. When they arrive, their hopes are dashed. NIV 20 They are distressed, because they had been confident; they arrive there, only to be disappointed. NLT 21 You, too, have given no help. You have seen my calamity, and you are afraid. NIV 21 Now you too have proved to be of no help; you see something dreadful and are afraid. NLT 22 But why? Have I ever asked you for a gift? Have I begged for anything of yours for myself? NIV 22 Have I ever said, ‘Give something on my behalf, pay a ransom for me from your wealth, NLT 23 Have I asked you to rescue me from my enemies, or to save me from ruthless people? NIV 23 deliver me from the hand of the enemy, rescue me from the clutches of the ruthless’? NLT 24 Teach me, and I will keep quiet. Show me what I have done wrong. NIV 24 “Teach me, and I will be quiet; show me where I have been wrong. NLT 25 Honest words can be painful, but what do your criticisms amount to? NIV 25 How painful are honest words! But what do your arguments prove? NLT 26 Do you think your words are convincing when you disregard my cry of desperation? NIV 26 Do you mean to correct what I say, and treat my desperate words as wind? NLT 27 You would even send an orphan into slavery or sell a friend. NIV 27 You would even cast lots for the fatherless and barter away your friend. NLT 28 Look at me! Would I lie to your face? NIV 28 “But now be so kind as to look at me. Would I lie to your face? NLT 29 Stop assuming my guilt, for I have done no wrong. NIV 29 Relent, do not be unjust; reconsider, for my integrity is at stake. NLT 30 Do you think I am lying? Don’t I know the difference between right and wrong? NIV 30 Is there any wickedness on my lips? Can my mouth not discern malice?
