Job 16

16:1 Then Iob answered, and said, 16:2 I haue heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all. 16:3 Shall vaine words haue an ende or what emboldeneth thee, that thou answerest 16:4 I also could speake as yee doe: if your soule were in my soules stead, I could heape vp words against you, and shake mine head at you. 16:5 But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the mouing of my lips should asswage your griefe. 16:6 Though I speake, my griefe is not asswaged: and though I forbeare; what am I eased 16:7 But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate al my companie. 16:8 And thou hast filled mee with wrinckles, which is a witnesse against me: and my leannesse rising vp in me, beareth witnesse to my face. 16:9 He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth vpon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes vpon me. 16:10 They haue gaped vpon me with their mouth, they haue smitten me vpon the cheeke reprochfully, they haue gathered themselues together against mee. 16:11 God hath deliuered me to the vngodly, and turned me ouer into the hands of the wicked. 16:12 I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder: he hath also taken me by my necke, and shaken me to pieces, and set me vp for his marke. 16:13 His archers compasse me round about, he cleaueth my reines asunder, and doeth not spare; he powreth out my gall vpon the ground. 16:14 He breaketh me with breach vpon breach, he runneth vpon me like a giant. 16:15 I haue sowed sackcloth vpon my skin, and defiled my horne in the dust. 16:16 My face is fowle with weeping, and on mine eye-lids is the shadow of death; 16:17 Not for any iniustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure. 16:18 O earth couer not thou my blood, and let my cry haue no place. 16:19 Also now, behold my witnesse is in heauen, and my record is on high. 16:20 My friends scorne me: but mine eye powreth out teares vnto God. 16:21 O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour. 16:22 When a few yeeres are come, then I shall goe the way whence I shall not returne.
