1Then Job answered and said,
2“How long will you make me suffer and break me into pieces with words?
3These ten times you have reproached me; you are not ashamed that you have treated me harshly.
4If it is indeed true that I have erred, my error remains my own concern.
5If indeed you will exalt yourselves above me and use my humiliation against me,
6then you should know that God has done wrong to me and has caught me in his net.
7See, I cry out, “Violence!” but I get no answer. I call out for help, but there is no justice.
8He has walled up my way so that I cannot pass, and he has set darkness in my path.
9He has stripped me of my glory, and he has taken the crown from my head.
10He has broken me down on every side, and I am gone; he has pulled up my hope like a tree.
11He has also kindled his wrath against me; he regards me as one of his adversaries.
12His troops come on together; they cast up siege mounds against me and encamp around my tent.
13He has put my brothers far from me; my acquaintances are wholly alienated from me.
14My kinsfolk have failed me; my close friends have forgotten me.
15Those who once stayed as guests in my house and my female servants regard me as a stranger; I am an alien in their sight.
16I call to my servant, but he gives me no answer although I entreat him with my mouth.
17My breath is offensive to my wife; I am even disgusting to those who were born from my mother's womb.
18Even young children despise me; if I rise to speak, they speak against me.

19All my familiar friends abhor me; those whom I love have turned against me.
20My bones cling to my skin and to my flesh; I survive only by the skin of my teeth.
21Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, my friends, for the hand of God has touched me.
22Why do you pursue me like God does? Will you ever be satisfied with my flesh?
23Oh, that my words were now written down! Oh, that they were inscribed in a book!
24Oh, that with an iron pen and lead they were engraved in the rock forever!
25But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and that at last he will stand on the earth;
26after my skin, that is, this body, is destroyed, then in my flesh I will see God.
27I will see him with my own eyes—I, and not someone else. My heart fails within me.
28If you say, 'How we will persecute him! The root of his troubles lies in him,'
29then be afraid of the sword, because wrath brings the punishment of the sword, so that you may know there is a judgment.”
