Job 6

KJV 1 But Job answered and said, NIV 1 Then Job replied: KJV 2 Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together! NIV 2 “If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales! KJV 3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up. NIV 3 It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas— no wonder my words have been impetuous. KJV 4 For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit: 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. KJV 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? KJV 6 Can that which is unsavoury 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 ? KJV 7 The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat. NIV 7 I refuse to touch it; such food makes me ill. KJV 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, KJV 9 Even that it would please God to destroy 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! KJV 10 Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed 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. KJV 11 What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life? NIV 11 “What strength do I have, that I should still hope? What prospects, that I should be patient? KJV 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? KJV 13 Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me? NIV 13 Do I have any power to help myself, now that success has been driven from me? KJV 14 To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty. NIV 14 “Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty. KJV 15 My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away; NIV 15 But my brothers are as undependable as intermittent streams, as the streams that overflow KJV 16 Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid: NIV 16 when darkened by thawing ice and swollen with melting snow, KJV 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. KJV 18 The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish. NIV 18 Caravans turn aside from their routes; they go off into the wasteland and perish. KJV 19 The troops 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. KJV 20 They were confounded because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed. NIV 20 They are distressed, because they had been confident; they arrive there, only to be disappointed. KJV 21 For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid. NIV 21 Now you too have proved to be of no help; you see something dreadful and are afraid. KJV 22 Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance? NIV 22 Have I ever said, ‘Give something on my behalf, pay a ransom for me from your wealth, KJV 23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty? NIV 23 deliver me from the hand of the enemy, rescue me from the clutches of the ruthless’? KJV 24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: 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. KJV 25 How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove? NIV 25 How painful are honest words! But what do your arguments prove? KJV 26 Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind? NIV 26 Do you mean to correct what I say, and treat my desperate words as wind? KJV 27 Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend. NIV 27 You would even cast lots for the fatherless and barter away your friend. KJV 28 Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie. NIV 28 “But now be so kind as to look at me. Would I lie to your face? KJV 29 Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it. NIV 29 Relent, do not be unjust; reconsider, for my integrity is at stake. KJV 30 Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things? NIV 30 Is there any wickedness on my lips? Can my mouth not discern malice?
