Job 16

1  Then Job answered and said,

2  I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all.

3  Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest?

4  I also could speak as ye do: if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you.

5  But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief.

6  Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased?

7  But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all my company.

8  And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face.

9  He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.

10  They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me.
