ASV 1 Then Job answered and said, NIV 1 Then Job replied: ASV 2 Oh that my vexation were but weighed, And all my calamity laid in the balances! NIV 2 “If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales! ASV 3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the seas: Therefore have my words been rash. NIV 3 It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas— no wonder my words have been impetuous. ASV 4 For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, The poison whereof my spirit drinketh up: The terrors of God do set themselves in array 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. ASV 5 Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? Or loweth the ox over his fodder? NIV 5 Does a wild donkey bray when it has grass, or an ox bellow when it has fodder? ASV 6 Can that which hath no savor be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg? NIV 6 Is tasteless food eaten without salt, or is there flavor in the sap of the mallow ? ASV 7 My soul refuseth to touch [them]; They are as loathsome food to me. NIV 7 I refuse to touch it; such food makes me ill. ASV 8 Oh that I might have my request; And that God would grant [me] the thing that I long for! NIV 8 “Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant what I hope for, ASV 9 Even that it would please God to crush me; That he would let loose his hand, and cut me off! NIV 9 that God would be willing to crush me, to let loose his hand and cut off my life! ASV 10 And be it still my consolation, Yea, let me exult in pain that spareth not, That 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. ASV 11 What is my strength, that I should wait? And what is mine end, that I should be patient? NIV 11 “What strength do I have, that I should still hope? What prospects, that I should be patient? ASV 12 Is my strength the strength of stones? Or is my flesh of brass? NIV 12 Do I have the strength of stone? Is my flesh bronze? ASV 13 Is it not that I have no help in me, And that wisdom is driven quite from me? NIV 13 Do I have any power to help myself, now that success has been driven from me? ASV 14 To him that is ready to faint kindness [should be showed] from his friend; Even to him that forsaketh the fear of the Almighty. NIV 14 “Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty. ASV 15 My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, As the channel of brooks that pass away; NIV 15 But my brothers are as undependable as intermittent streams, as the streams that overflow ASV 16 Which are black by reason of the ice, [And] wherein the snow hideth itself: NIV 16 when darkened by thawing ice and swollen with melting snow, ASV 17 What time they wax warm, they vanish; When it is hot, they are consumed out of their place. NIV 17 but that stop flowing in the dry season, and in the heat vanish from their channels. ASV 18 The caravans [that travel] by the way of them turn aside; They go up into the waste, and perish. NIV 18 Caravans turn aside from their routes; they go off into the wasteland and perish. ASV 19 The caravans of Tema looked, The companies of Sheba waited for them. NIV 19 The caravans of Tema look for water, the traveling merchants of Sheba look in hope. ASV 20 They were put to shame because they had hoped; They came thither, and were confounded. NIV 20 They are distressed, because they had been confident; they arrive there, only to be disappointed. ASV 21 For now ye are nothing; Ye see a terror, and are afraid. NIV 21 Now you too have proved to be of no help; you see something dreadful and are afraid. ASV 22 Did I say, Give unto me? Or, Offer a present for me of your substance? NIV 22 Have I ever said, ‘Give something on my behalf, pay a ransom for me from your wealth, ASV 23 Or, Deliver me from the adversary's hand? Or, Redeem me from the hand of the oppressors? NIV 23 deliver me from the hand of the enemy, rescue me from the clutches of the ruthless’? ASV 24 Teach me, and I will hold my peace; And cause me to understand wherein I have erred. NIV 24 “Teach me, and I will be quiet; show me where I have been wrong. ASV 25 How forcible are words of uprightness! But your reproof, what doth it reprove? NIV 25 How painful are honest words! But what do your arguments prove? ASV 26 Do ye think to reprove words, Seeing that the speeches of one that is desperate are as wind? NIV 26 Do you mean to correct what I say, and treat my desperate words as wind? ASV 27 Yea, ye would cast [lots] upon the fatherless, And make merchandise of your friend. NIV 27 You would even cast lots for the fatherless and barter away your friend. ASV 28 Now therefore be pleased to look upon me; For surely I shall not lie to your face. NIV 28 “But now be so kind as to look at me. Would I lie to your face? ASV 29 Return, I pray you, let there be no injustice; Yea, return again, my cause is righteous. NIV 29 Relent, do not be unjust; reconsider, for my integrity is at stake. ASV 30 Is there injustice on my tongue? Cannot my taste discern mischievous things? NIV 30 Is there any wickedness on my lips? Can my mouth not discern malice?
