Job’s Sixth Speech: A Response to Bildad

19Then Job spoke again.H347H6030H5592"How long will you torture me? How long will you try to crush me with your words?H3013H5315H1792H44053You have already insulted me ten times. You should be ashamed of treating me so badly.H6235H6471H3637H954H19704Even if I have sinned, that is my concern, not yours.H551H7686H4879H38855You think you're better than I am, using my humiliation as evidence of my sin.H551H1431H3198H27816But it is God who has wronged me, capturing me in his netc.H3045H645H433H5791H5362H46867"I cry out, 'Help!' but no one answers me. I protest, but there is no justice.H6817H2555H6030H7768H49418God has blocked my way so I cannot move. He has plunged my path into darkness.H1443H734H5674H7760H2822H54109He has stripped me of my honor and removed the crown from my head.H6584H3519H5493H5850H721810He has demolished me on every side, and I am finished. He has uprooted my hope like a fallen tree.H5422H5439H3212H8615H5265H608611His fury burns against me; he counts me as an enemy.H2734H639H2803H686212His troops advance. They build up roads to attack me. They camp all around my tent.H1416H935H3162H5549H1870H2583H5439H16813"My relatives stay far away, and my friends have turned against me.H7368H251H7368H3045H211414My family is gone, and my close friends have forgotten me.H7138H2308H3045H791115My servants and maids consider me a stranger. I am like a foreigner to them.H1481H1004H519H2803H2114H5237H586916When I call my servant, he doesn't come; I have to plead with him!H7121H5650H6030H2603H1119H631017My breath is repulsive to my wife. I am rejected by my own family.H7307H2114H802H2589H1121H99018Even young children despise me. When I stand to speak, they turn their backs on me.H5759H3988H6965H169619My close friends detest me. Those I loved have turned against me.H5475H4962H8581H157H201520I have been reduced to skin and bones and have escaped death by the skin of my teeth.H6106H1692H5785H1320H4422H5785H812721"Have mercy on me, my friends, have mercy, for the hand of God has struck me.H2603H2603H7453H3027H433H506022Must you also persecute me, like God does? Haven't you chewed me up enough?H7291H410H7646H132023"Oh, that my words could be recorded. Oh, that they could be inscribed on a monument,H5414H4405H645H3789H5414H2710H561224carved with an iron chisel and filled with lead, engraved forever in the rock.H2672H1270H5842H5777H6697H570325"But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last.H3045H1350H2416H6965H314H608326And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God!cH310H5785H5362H1320H2372H43327I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!H2372H5869H7200H2114H3629H3615H243628"How dare you go on persecuting me, saying, 'It's his own fault'?H559H7291H8328H1697H467229You should fear punishment yourselves, for your attitude deserves punishment. Then you will know that there is indeed a judgment."H1481H2719H2534H5771H6440H2719H3045H1779H1779
