KJV JOB16 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB15.htm JOB17.htm
16:1 Then Job [H347] answered [H6030] and said [H559] ,
16:2 I have heard [H8085] many such things [H7227] : miserable [H5999] comforters [H5162] [are] ye all.(miserable: or, troublesome)
16:3 Shall vain [H7307] words [H1697] have an end [H7093] ? or what emboldeneth [H4834] thee that thou answerest [H6030] ?(vain: Heb. words of wind)
16:4 I also could speak [H1696] as ye [do]: if [H3863] your soul [H5315] were [H3426] in my soul's [H5315] stead, I could heap up [H2266] words [H4405] against you, and shake [H5128] mine head [H7218] at [H1119] you.
16:5 [But] I would strengthen [H553] you with [H1119] my mouth [H6310] , and the moving [H5205] of my lips [H8193] should asswage [H2820] [your grief].
16:6 Though I speak [H1696] , my grief [H3511] is not asswaged [H2820] : and [though] I forbear [H2308] , what am I eased [H1980] ?(what: Heb. what goeth from me?)
16:7 But now he hath made me weary [H3811] : thou hast made desolate [H8074] all my company [H5712] .
16:8 And thou hast filled me with wrinkles [H7059] , [which] is a witness [H5707] [against me]: and my leanness [H3585] rising up [H6965] in me beareth witness [H6030] to my face [H6440] .
16:9 He teareth [H2963] [me] in his wrath [H639] , who hateth [H7852] me: he gnasheth [H2786] upon me with his teeth [H8127] ; mine enemy [H6862] sharpeneth [H3913] his eyes [H5869] upon me.
16:10 They have gaped [H6473] upon me with their mouth [H6310] ; they have smitten [H5221] me upon the cheek [H3895] reproachfully [H2781] ; they have gathered [H4390] themselves together [H3162] against me.
16:11 God [H410] hath delivered [H5462] me to the ungodly [H5760] , and turned me over [H3399] into the hands [H3027] of the wicked [H7563] .(hath: Heb. hath shut me up)
16:12 I was at ease [H7961] , but he hath broken me asunder [H6565] : he hath also taken [H270] [me] by my neck [H6203] , and shaken me to pieces [H6327] , and set me up [H6965] for his mark [H4307] .
16:13 His archers [H7228] compass me round about [H5437] , he cleaveth [H6398] my reins [H3629] asunder [H6398] , and doth not spare [H2550] ; he poureth out [H8210] my gall [H4845] upon the ground [H776] .
16:14 He breaketh [H6555] me with breach [H6556] upon [H6440] breach [H6556] , he runneth [H7323] upon me like a giant [H1368] .
16:15 I have sewed [H8609] sackcloth [H8242] upon my skin [H1539] , and defiled [H5953] my horn [H7161] in the dust [H6083] .
16:16 My face [H6440] is foul [H2560] with weeping [H1065] , and on my eyelids [H6079] [is] the shadow of death [H6757] ;
16:17 Not for [any] injustice [H2555] in mine hands [H3709] : also my prayer [H8605] [is] pure [H2134] .
16:18 O earth [H776] , cover [H3680] not thou my blood [H1818] , and let my cry [H2201] have no place [H4725] .
16:19 Also now, behold, my witness [H5707] [is] in heaven [H8064] , and my record [H7717] [is] on high [H4791] .(on high: Heb. in the high places)
16:20 My friends [H7453] scorn [H3887] me: [but] mine eye [H5869] poureth out [H1811] [tears] unto God [H433] .(scorn me: Heb. are my scorners)
16:21 O that one might plead [H3198] for a man [H1397] with God [H433] , as a man [H120] [pleadeth] for his neighbour [H1121] [H7453] !(neighbour: or, friend)
16:22 When a few [H4557] years [H8141] are come [H857] , then I shall go [H1980] the way [H734] [whence] I shall not return [H7725] .(a few: Heb. years of number)
