Job Continues to Defend His Innocence

17"My spirit is crushed, and my life is nearly snuffed out. The grave is ready to receive me.H7307H2254H3117H2193H6913 2I am surrounded by mockers. I watch how bitterly they taunt me.H2049H5869H3885H4784 3"You must defend my innocence, O God, since no one else will stand up for me.H7760H6148H8628H3027 4You have closed their minds to understanding, but do not let them triumph.H6845H3820H7922H7311 5They betray their friends for their own advantage, so let their children faint with hunger.H5046H2506H7453H5869H1121H3615 6"God has made a mockery of me among the people; they spit in my face.H3322H4914H5971H6440H8611 7My eyes are swollen with weeping, and I am but a shadow of my former self.H5869H3543H3708H3338H6738 8The virtuous are horrified when they see me. The innocent rise up against the ungodly.H3477H8074H5355H5782H2611 9The righteous keep moving forward, and those with clean hands become stronger and stronger.H6662H270H1870H2890H3027H3254H555 10"As for all of you, come back with a better argument, though I still won't find a wise man among you.H199H7725H935H4672H2450 11My days are over. My hopes have disappeared. My heart's desires are broken.H3117H5674H2154H5423H4180H3824 12These men say that night is day; they claim that the darkness is light.H7760H3915H3117H216H7138H6440H2822 13What if I go to the grave and make my bed in darkness?H6960H7585H1004H7502H3326H2822 14What if I call the grave my father, and the maggot my mother or my sister?H7121H7845H1H7415H517H269 15Where then is my hope? Can anyone find it?H645H8615H8615H7789 16No, my hope will go down with me to the grave. We will rest together in the dust!"H3381H905H7585H5183H3162H6083
