Job Replies: My Complaint Is Just
  6:1 Then Job answered and said:
2
“Oh that my vexation were weighed,
and all my calamity laid in the balances!
3
For then it would be heavier than the sand of the sea;
therefore my words have been rash.
4
For the arrows of the Almighty are in me;
my spirit drinks their poison;
the terrors of God are arrayed against me.
5
Does the wild donkey bray when he has grass,
or the ox low over his fodder?
6
Can that which is tasteless be eaten without salt,
or is there any taste in the juice of the mallow?
7
My appetite refuses to touch them;
they are as food that is loathsome to me.

8
“Oh that I might have my request,
and that God would fulfill my hope,
9
that it would please God to crush me,
that he would let loose his hand and cut me off!
10
This would be my comfort;
I would even exult in pain unsparing,
for I have not denied the words of the Holy One.
11
What is my strength, that I should wait?
And what is my end, that I should be patient?
12
Is my strength the strength of stones, or is my flesh bronze?
13
Have I any help in me,
when resource is driven from me?

14
“He who withholds kindness from a friend
forsakes the fear of the Almighty.
15
My brothers are treacherous as a torrent-bed,
as torrential streams that pass away,
16
which are dark with ice,
and where the snow hides itself.
17
When they melt, they disappear;
when it is hot, they vanish from their place.
18
The caravans turn aside from their course;
they go up into the waste and perish.
19
The caravans of Tema look,
the travelers of Sheba hope.
20
They are ashamed because they were confident;
they come there and are disappointed.
21
For you have now become nothing;
you see my calamity and are afraid.
22
Have I said, ‘Make me a gift’?
Or, ‘From your wealth offer a bribe for me’?
23
Or, ‘Deliver me from the adversary’s hand’?
Or, ‘Redeem me from the hand of the ruthless’?

24
“Teach me, and I will be silent;
make me understand how I have gone astray.
25
How forceful are upright words!
But what does reproof from you reprove?
26
Do you think that you can reprove words,
when the speech of a despairing man is wind?
27
You would even cast lots over the fatherless,
and bargain over your friend.

28
“But now, be pleased to look at me,
for I will not lie to your face.
29
Please turn; let no injustice be done.
Turn now; my vindication is at stake.
30
Is there any injustice on my tongue?
Cannot my palate discern the cause of calamity?
