Job’s Sixth Speech: A Response to Bildad

19Then Job spoke again.H347H6030H559 2"How long will you torture me? How long will you try to crush me with your words?H3013H5315H1792H4405 3You have already insulted me ten times. You should be ashamed of treating me so badly.H6235H6471H3637H954H1970 4Even if I have sinned, that is my concern, not yours.H551H7686H4879H3885 5You think you're better than I am, using my humiliation as evidence of my sin.H551H1431H3198H2781 6But it is God who has wronged me, capturing me in his net.H3045H645H433H5791H5362H4686 7"I cry out, 'Help!' but no one answers me. I protest, but there is no justice.H6817H2555H6030H7768H4941 8God has blocked my way so I cannot move. He has plunged my path into darkness.H1443H734H5674H7760H2822H5410 9He has stripped me of my honor and removed the crown from my head.H6584H3519H5493H5850H7218 10He has demolished me on every side, and I am finished. He has uprooted my hope like a fallen tree.H5422H5439H3212H8615H5265H6086 11His fury burns against me; he counts me as an enemy.H2734H639H2803H6862 12His troops advance. They build up roads to attack me. They camp all around my tent.H1416H935H3162H5549H1870H2583H5439H168 13"My relatives stay far away, and my friends have turned against me.H7368H251H7368H3045H2114 14My family is gone, and my close friends have forgotten me.H7138H2308H3045H7911 15My servants and maids consider me a stranger. I am like a foreigner to them.H1481H1004H519H2803H2114H5237H5869 16When I call my servant, he doesn't come; I have to plead with him!H7121H5650H6030H2603H1119H6310 17My breath is repulsive to my wife. I am rejected by my own family.H7307H2114H802H2589H1121H990 18Even young children despise me. When I stand to speak, they turn their backs on me.H5759H3988H6965H1696 19My close friends detest me. Those I loved have turned against me.H5475H4962H8581H157H2015 20I have been reduced to skin and bones and have escaped death by the skin of my teeth.H6106H1692H5785H1320H4422H5785H8127 21"Have mercy on me, my friends, have mercy, for the hand of God has struck me.H2603H2603H7453H3027H433H5060 22Must you also persecute me, like God does? Haven't you chewed me up enough?H7291H410H7646H1320 23"Oh, that my words could be recorded. Oh, that they could be inscribed on a monument,H5414H4405H645H3789H5414H2710H5612 24carved with an iron chisel and filled with lead, engraved forever in the rock.H2672H1270H5842H5777H6697H5703 25"But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last.H3045H1350H2416H6965H314H6083 26And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God!H310H5785H5362H1320H2372H433 27I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!H2372H5869H7200H2114H3629H3615H2436 28"How dare you go on persecuting me, saying, 'It's his own fault'?H559H7291H8328H1697H4672 29You should fear punishment yourselves, for your attitude deserves punishment. Then you will know that there is indeed a judgment."H1481H2719H2534H5771H6440H2719H3045H1779H1779
