Divine Agenda – Job 16

Job 16:1 Then Job answered and said, 

Job 16:2 I have heard  many such things: miserable comforters are ye all. 

Job 16:3  Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee  that thou answerest? 

Job 16:4 I also could speak as ye do: if  your soul were in my soul’s stead, I could heap up words  against you, and shake mine head at you. 

Job 16:5 But I  would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of  my lips should assuage your grief. 


Job 16:6 Though I  speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear,  what am I eased? 

Job 16:7 But now he hath made me weary:  thou hast made desolate all my company. 

Job 16:8 And thou  hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against  me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my  face. 

Job 16:9 He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me:  he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth  his eyes upon me. 

Job 16:10 They have gaped upon me with  their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek  reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me. 

Job 16:11 God hath delivered me to the ungodly,  and turned me over into the hands of the wicked. 

Job 16:12 I  was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder: he hath also  taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me  up for his mark. 

Job 16:13 His archers compass me round  about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he  poureth out my gall upon the ground. 

Job 16:14 He breaketh  me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a  giant. 

Job 16:15 I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and  defiled my horn in the dust. 

Job 16:16 My face is foul with  weeping, and my eyelids is the shadow of death; 

Job 16:17  Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is  pure. 

Job 16:18 O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my  cry have no place. 

Job 16:19 Also now, behold, my witness  is in heaven, and my record is on high. 

Job 16:20 My  friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears unto  God. 

Job 16:21 Oh that one might plead for a man with God,  as a man pleadeth for his neighbour! 

Job 16:22 When a few  years are come, then I shall go the way whence I shall not  return.
