Job 19

Job 19:1
Then Job answered and said,

Job 19:2  
How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?

Job 19:3  
These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.

Job 19:4  
And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.

Job 19:5  
If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:

Job 19:6  
Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.

Job 19:7  
Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.

Job 19:8  
He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.

Job 19:9  
He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.

Job 19:10  
He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.

Job 19:11  
He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.

Job 19:12
His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.

Job 19:13  
He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.

Job 19:14  
My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

Job 19:15  
They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.

Job 19:16  
I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.

Job 19:17  
My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.

Job 19:18  
Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.

Job 19:19  
All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.

Job 19:20  
My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.

Job 19:21  
Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.

Job 19:22  
Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?

Job 19:23  
Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!

Job 19:24  
That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!

Job 19:25  
For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

Job 19:26  
And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

Job 19:27  
Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

Job 19:28
But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?

Job 19:29
Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
