6:1 But Job [H347] answered [H6030] and said [H559] ,
6:2 Oh that [H3863] my grief [H3708] were throughly [H8254] weighed [H8254] , and my calamity [H1942] [H1962] laid [H5375] in the balances [H3976] together [H3162] !(laid: Heb. lifted up)
6:3 For now it would be heavier [H3513] than the sand [H2344] of the sea [H3220] : therefore my words [H1697] are swallowed up [H3886] .(my words: that is, I want words to express my grief)
6:4 For the arrows [H2671] of the Almighty [H7706] [are] within [H5978] me, the poison [H2534] whereof drinketh up [H8354] my spirit [H7307] : the terrors [H1161] of God [H433] do set themselves in array [H6186] against me.
6:5 Doth the wild ass [H6501] bray [H5101] when he hath grass [H1877] ? or loweth [H1600] the ox [H7794] over his fodder [H1098] ?(when he: Heb. at grass?)
6:6 Can that which is unsavoury [H8602] be eaten [H398] without salt [H4417] ? or is there [H3426] [any] taste [H2940] in the white [H7388] of an egg [H2495] ?
6:7 The things [that] my soul [H5315] refused [H3985] to touch [H5060] [are] as my sorrowful [H1741] meat [H3899] .
6:8 Oh that I might have [H935] my request [H7596] ; and that God [H433] would grant [H5414] [me] the thing that I long for [H8615] !(the thing: Heb. my expectation)
6:9 Even that it would please [H2974] God [H433] to destroy [H1792] me; that he would let loose [H5425] his hand [H3027] , and cut me off [H1214] !
6:10 Then should I yet have comfort [H5165] ; yea, I would harden [H5539] myself in sorrow [H2427] : let him not spare [H2550] ; for I have not concealed [H3582] the words [H561] of the Holy One [H6918] .
6:11 What [is] my strength [H3581] , that I should hope [H3176] ? and what [is] mine end [H7093] , that I should prolong [H748] my life [H5315] ?
6:12 [Is] my strength [H3581] the strength [H3581] of stones [H68] ? or [is] my flesh [H1320] of brass [H5153] ?(of brass: Heb. brasen?)
6:13 [Is] not my help [H5833] in me? and is wisdom [H8454] driven quite [H5080] from me?
6:14 To him that is afflicted [H4523] pity [H2617] [should be shewed] from his friend [H7453] ; but he forsaketh [H5800] the fear [H3374] of the Almighty [H7706] .(is afflicted: Heb. melteth)
6:15 My brethren [H251] have dealt deceitfully [H898] as a brook [H5158] , [and] as the stream [H650] of brooks [H5158] they pass away [H5674] ;
6:16 Which are blackish [H6937] by reason of the ice [H7140] , [and] wherein the snow [H7950] is hid [H5956] :
6:17 What time [H6256] they wax warm [H2215] , they vanish [H6789] : when it is hot [H2527] , they are consumed out [H1846] of their place [H4725] .(vanish: Heb. are cut off)(when: Heb. in the heat thereof)(consumed: Heb. extinguished)
6:18 The paths [H734] of their way [H1870] are turned aside [H3943] ; they go [H5927] to nothing [H8414] , and perish [H6] .
6:19 The troops [H734] of Tema [H8485] looked [H5027] , the companies [H1979] of Sheba [H7614] waited [H6960] for them.
6:20 They were confounded [H954] because they had hoped [H982] ; they came [H935] thither, and were ashamed [H2659] .
6:21 For now ye are nothing; ye see [H7200] [my] casting down [H2866] , and are afraid [H3372] .(ye are: or, ye are like to them: Heb. to it)(nothing: Heb. not)
6:22 Did I say [H559] , Bring [H3051] unto me? or, Give a reward [H7809] for me of your substance [H3581] ?
6:23 Or, Deliver [H4422] me from the enemy's [H6862] hand [H3027] ? or, Redeem [H6299] me from the hand [H3027] of the mighty [H6184] ?
6:24 Teach [H3384] me, and I will hold my tongue [H2790] : and cause me to understand [H995] wherein I have erred [H7686] .
6:25 How forcible [H4834] are right [H3476] words [H561] ! but what doth your arguing [H3198] reprove [H3198] ?
6:26 Do ye imagine [H2803] to reprove [H3198] words [H4405] , and the speeches [H561] of one that is desperate [H2976] , [which are] as wind [H7307] ?
6:27 Yea, ye overwhelm [H5307] the fatherless [H3490] , and ye dig [H3738] [a pit] for your friend [H7453] .(ye overwhelm: Heb. ye cause to fall upon)
6:28 Now therefore be content [H2974] , look [H6437] upon me; for [it is] evident [H6440] unto you if I lie [H3576] .(evident: Heb. before your face)
6:29 Return [H7725] , I pray you, let it not be iniquity [H5766] ; yea, return again [H7725] , my righteousness [H6664] [is] in it.(in it: that is, in this matter)
6:30 Is there [H3426] iniquity [H5766] in my tongue [H3956] ? cannot my taste [H2441] discern [H995] perverse things [H1942] ?(my taste: Heb. my palate)
