Job 16

  1 H347 Then Job H6030 answered [H8799]   H559 and said [H8799]  ,
  2 H8085 I have heard [H8804]   H7227 many such things H5999 : miserable H5162 comforters [H8764]   are ye all.
  3 H7307 Shall vain H1697 words H7093 have an end H4834 ? or what emboldeneth [H8686]   H6030 thee that thou answerest [H8799]  ?
  4 H1696 I also could speak [H8762]   H3863 as ye do : if H5315 your soul H3426 were H5315 in my soul's H2266 stead, I could heap up [H8686]   H4405 words H5128 against you, and shake [H8686]   H7218 mine head H1119 at you.
  5 H553 But I would strengthen [H8762]   H1119 you with H6310 my mouth H5205 , and the moving H8193 of my lips H2820 should asswage [H8799]   your grief .
  6 H1696 Though I speak [H8762]   H3511 , my grief H2820 is not asswaged [H8735]   H2308 : and though I forbear [H8799]   H1980 , what am I eased [H8799]  ?
  7 H3811 But now he hath made me weary [H8689]   H8074 : thou hast made desolate [H8689]   H5712 all my company.
  8 H7059 And thou hast filled me with wrinkles [H8799]   H5707 , which is a witness H3585 against me : and my leanness H6965 rising up [H8799]   H6030 in me beareth witness [H8799]   H6440 to my face.
  9 H2963 He teareth [H8804]   H639 me in his wrath H7852 , who hateth [H8799]   H2786 me: he gnasheth [H8804]   H8127 upon me with his teeth H6862 ; mine enemy H3913 sharpeneth [H8799]   H5869 his eyes upon me.
  10 H6473 They have gaped [H8804]   H6310 upon me with their mouth H5221 ; they have smitten [H8689]   H3895 me upon the cheek H2781 reproachfully H4390 ; they have gathered [H8691]   H3162 themselves together against me.
  11 H410 God H5462 hath delivered [H8686]   H5760 me to the ungodly H3399 , and turned me over [H8804]   H3027 into the hands H7563 of the wicked.
  12 H7961 I was at ease H6565 , but he hath broken me asunder [H8770]   H270 : he hath also taken [H8804]   H6203 me by my neck H6327 , and shaken me to pieces [H8770]   H6965 , and set me up [H8686]   H4307 for his mark.
  13 H7228 His archers H5437 compass me round about [H8799]   H6398 , he cleaveth H3629 my reins H6398 asunder [H8762]   H2550 , and doth not spare [H8799]   H8210 ; he poureth out [H8799]   H4845 my gall H776 upon the ground.
  14 H6555 He breaketh [H8799]   H6556 me with breach H6440 upon H6556 breach H7323 , he runneth [H8799]   H1368 upon me like a giant.
  15 H8609 I have sewed [H8804]   H8242 sackcloth H1539 upon my skin H5953 , and defiled [H8782]   H7161 my horn H6083 in the dust.
  16 H6440 My face H2560 is foul [H8777]   H1065 with weeping H6079 , and on my eyelids H6757 is the shadow of death;
  17 H2555 Not for any injustice H3709 in mine hands H8605 : also my prayer H2134 is pure.
  18 H776 O earth H3680 , cover [H8762]   H1818 not thou my blood H2201 , and let my cry H4725 have no place.
  19 H5707 Also now, behold, my witness H8064 is in heaven H7717 , and my record H4791 is on high.
  20 H7453 My friends H3887 scorn [H8688]   H5869 me: but mine eye H1811 poureth out [H8804]   H433 tears unto God.
  21 H3198 O that one might plead [H8686]   H1397 for a man H433 with God H120 , as a man H1121 pleadeth for his neighbour H7453  !
  22 H4557 When a few H8141 years H857 are come [H8799]   H1980 , then I shall go [H8799]   H734 the way H7725 whence I shall not return [H8799]  .
