Job 19

19:1 And Job answereth and saith: -- 19:2 Till when do ye afflict my soul, And bruise me with words 19:3 These ten times ye put me to shame, ye blush not. Ye make yourselves strange to me-- 19:4 And also--truly, I have erred, With me doth my error remain. 19:5 If, truly, over me ye magnify yourselves, And decide against me my reproach; 19:6 Know now, that God turned me upside down, And His net against me hath set round, 19:7 Lo, I cry out--violence, and am not answered, I cry aloud, and there is no judgment.  19:8 My way He hedged up, and I pass not over, And on my paths darkness He placeth. 19:9 Mine honour from off me He hath stripped, And He turneth the crown from my head. 19:10 He breaketh me down round about, and I go, And removeth like a tree my hope. 19:11 And He kindleth against me His anger, And reckoneth me to Him as His adversaries. 19:12 Come in do His troops together, And they raise up against me their way, And encamp round about my tent. 19:13 My brethren from me He hath put far off, And mine acquaintances surely Have been estranged from me. 19:14 Ceased have my neighbours And my familiar friends have forgotten me, 19:15 Sojourners of my house and my maids, For a stranger reckon me: An alien I have been in their eyes. 19:16 To my servant I have called, And he doth not answer, With my mouth I make supplication to him. 19:17 My spirit is strange to my wife, And my favours to the sons of my [mother's] womb. 19:18 Also sucklings have despised me, I rise, and they speak against me. 19:19 Abominate me do all the men of my counsel, And those I have loved, Have been turned against me. 19:20 To my skin and to my flesh Cleaved hath my bone, And I deliver myself with the skin of my teeth. 19:21 Pity me, pity me, ye my friends, For the hand of God hath stricken against me. 19:22 Why do you pursue me as God And with my flesh are not satisfied  19:23 Who doth grant now, That my words may be written Who doth grant that in a book they may be graven 19:24 With a pen of iron and lead--For ever in a rock they may be hewn. 19:25 That--I have known my Redeemer, The Living and the Last, For the dust he doth rise. 19:26 And after my skin hath compassed this [body] , Then from my flesh I see God: 19:27 Whom I--I see on my side, And mine eyes have beheld, and not a stranger, Consumed have been my reins in my bosom. 19:28 But ye say, `Why do we pursue after him' And the root of the matter hath been found in me. 19:29 Be ye afraid because of the sword, For furious [are] the punishments of the sword, That ye may know that [there is] a judgment.
