Job 6

Job 6:1
But Job answered and said,

Job 6:2  
Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together!

Job 6:3  
For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up.

Job 6:4  
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.

Job 6:5  
Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder?

Job 6:6
Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?

Job 6:7
The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.

Job 6:8  
Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!

Job 6:9  
Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!

Job 6:10  
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.

Job 6:11  
What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?

Job 6:12
Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?

Job 6:13
Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?

Job 6:14  
To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.

Job 6:15  
My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;

Job 6:16  
Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid:

Job 6:17  
What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.

Job 6:18  
The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.

Job 6:19  
The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.

Job 6:20  
They were confounded because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed.

Job 6:21  
For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid.

Job 6:22  
Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?

Job 6:23  
Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?

Job 6:24
Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

Job 6:25  
How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?

Job 6:26  
Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?

Job 6:27  
Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend.

Job 6:28
Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie.

Job 6:29  
Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it.

Job 6:30  
Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?
