Job Frames His Plea to God

10"I am disgusted with my life. Let me complain freely. My bitter soul must complain.H5315H5354H2416H5800H7879H1696H4751H5315 2I will say to God, 'Don't simply condemn me—tell me the charge you are bringing against me.H559H433H7561H3045H7378 3What do you gain by oppressing me? Why do you reject me, the work of your own hands, while smiling on the schemes of the wicked?H2895H6231H3988H3018H3709H3313H6098H7563 4Are your eyes like those of a human? Do you see things only as people see them?H5869H1320H7200H582H7200 5Is your lifetime only as long as ours? Is your life so shortH3117H3117H582H8141H1397H3117 6that you must quickly probe for my guilt and search for my sin?H1245H5771H1875H2403 7Although you know I am not guilty, no one can rescue me from your hands.H1847H7561H5337H3027 8"'You formed me with your hands; you made me, yet now you completely destroy me.H3027H6087H6213H3162H5439H1104 9Remember that you made me from dust—will you turn me back to dust so soon?H2142H6213H2563H7725H6083H7725 10You guided my conception and formed me in the womb.H5413H2461H7087H1385 11You clothed me with skin and flesh, and you knit my bones and sinews together.H3847H5785H1320H7753H6106H1517 12You gave me life and showed me your unfailing love. My life was preserved by your care.H6213H2416H2617H6486H8104H7307 13"'Yet your real motive—your true intent -H6845H3824H3045 14was to watch me, and if I sinned, you would not forgive my guilt.H2398H8104H5352H5771 15If I am guilty, too bad for me; and even if I'm innocent, I can't hold my head high, because I am filled with shame and misery.H7561H480H6663H5375H7218H7649H7036H7202H7200H6040 16And if I hold my head high, you hunt me like a lion and display your awesome power against me.H1342H6679H7826H7725H6381 17Again and again you witness against me. You pour out your growing anger on me and bring fresh armies against me.H2318H5707H7235H3708H5978H2487H6635 18"'Why, then, did you deliver me from my mother's womb? Why didn't you let me die at birth?H3318H7358H1478H5869H7200 19It would be as though I had never existed, going directly from the womb to the grave.H2986H990H6913 20I have only a few days left, so leave me alone, that I may have a moment of comfortH3117H4592H2308H2308H7896H7896H1082H4592 21before I leave—never to return—for the land of darkness and utter gloom.H3212H7725H776H2822H6757 22It is a land as dark as midnight, a land of gloom and confusion, where even the light is dark as midnight.'"H776H5890H652H6757H5468H3313H652
