Job 6

1  But Job answered and said,

2  Oh that my grief were thoroughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together!

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.
