Job 19

19:1 Then Iob answered, and sayd, 19:2 How long will yee vexe my soule, and breake me in pieces with words 19:3 These tenne times haue ye reproched me: you are not ashamed that you make your selues strange to me. 19:4 And be it indeed that I haue erred, mine errour remaineth with my selfe. 19:5 If indeed yee will magnifie your selues against me, and plead against me my reproch: 19:6 Know now that God hath ouerthrowen me, and hath compassed me with his net. 19:7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloude, but there is no iudgement. 19:8 Hee hath fenced vp my way that I cannot passe; and hee hath set darkenesse in my pathes. 19:9 Hee hath stript me of my glory, and taken the crowne from my head. 19:10 He hath destroyed me on euery side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he remooued like a tree. 19:11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and hee counteth me vnto him as one of his enemies. 19:12 His troupes come together, and raise vp their way against me, and encampe round about my tabernacle. 19:13 Hee hath put my brethren farre from me, and mine acquaintance are verely estranged from me. 19:14 My kinsefolke haue failed, and my familiar friends haue forgotten me. 19:15 They that dwell in mine house, and my maides count me for a stranger: I am an aliant in their sight. 19:16 I called my seruant, and he gaue me no answere: I intreated him with my mouth. 19:17 My breath is strange to my wife, though I entreated for the childrens sake of mine owne body. 19:18 Yea, yong children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me. 19:19 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loued, are turned against me. 19:20 My bone cleaueth to my skinne, and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skinne of my teeth. 19:21 Haue pity vpon me, haue pitie vpon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me. 19:22 Why doe ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh 19:23 Oh that my wordes were now written, oh that they were printed in a booke! 19:24 That they were grauen with an iron pen and lead, in the rocke for euer. 19:25 For I know that my Redeemer liueth, and that he shall stand at the latter day, vpon the earth: 19:26 And though after my skin, wormes destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: 19:27 Whom I shal see for my selfe, and mine eyes shall beholde, and not another, though my reines bee consumed within me. 19:28 But ye should say, Why persecute we him seeing the root of the matter is found in me. 19:29 Bee ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that yee may know there is a iudgement.
