Job 16


16:1 Then Job answered and said,
16:2 I have heard many such things: miserable comforters [are]
 ye all.
16:3 Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that
 thou answerest?
16:4 I also could speak as ye [do]: if your soul were in my
 soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake my
 head at you.
16:5 [But] I would strengthen you with my mouth and the moving
 of my lips should assuage [your grief].
16:6 Though I speak, my grief is not assuaged: and [though] I
 forbear, what am I eased?
16:7 But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all
 my company.
16:8 And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, [which] is a witness
 [against me]: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness
 to my face.
16:9 He teareth [me] in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth
 upon me with his teeth; my enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.
16:10 They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have
 smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered
 themselves against me.
16:11 God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over
 into the hands of the wicked.
16:12 I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder: he hath also
 taken [me] by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me up
 for his mark.
16:13 His archers encompass me; he cleaveth my reins asunder,
 and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground.
16:14 He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me
 like a giant.
16:15 I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn
 in the dust.
16:16 My face is foul with weeping, and on my eyelids [are] the
 shades of death;
16:17 Not for [any] injustice in my hands: also my prayer [is]
 pure.
16:18 O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no
 place.
16:19 Also now, behold, my witness [is] in heaven, and my record
 [is] on high.
16:20 My friends scorn me: [but] my eye poureth out [tears] to
 God.
16:21 O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man
 [pleadeth] for his neighbor!
16:22 When a few years are come, then I shall go the way
 [whence] I shall not return.
