Job 19

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

19:1 Then Job answered and said:

19:2 How long will ye vex my soul, and crush me with words?

19:3 These ten times have ye reproached me; ye are not ashamed that ye deal harshly with me.

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

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

19:6 Know now that God hath subverted my cause, and hath compassed me with His net.

19:7 Behold, I cry out: 'Violence!' but I am not heard; I cry aloud, but there is no justice.

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

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

19:10 He hath broken me down on every side, and I am gone; and my hope hath He plucked up like a tree.

19:11 He hath also kindled His wrath against me, and He counteth me unto Him as one of His adversaries.

19:12 His troops come on together, and cast up their way against me, and encamp round about my tent.

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

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

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

19:16 I call unto my servant, and he giveth me no answer, though I entreat him with my mouth.

19:17 My breath is abhorred of my wife, and I am loathsome to the children of my tribe.

19:18 Even urchins despised me; if I arise, they speak against me.

19:19 All my intimate friends abhor me; and they whom I loved are turned against me.

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

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

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

19:23 Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!

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

19:25 But as for me, I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He will witness at the last upon the dust;

19:26 And when after my skin this is destroyed, then without my flesh shall I see God;

19:27 Whom I, even I, shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another's. My reins are consumed within me.

19:28 If ye say: 'How we will persecute him!' seeing that the root of the matter is found in me;

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