018:019:001
Then Job answered and said,


018:019:002
How long will ye vex my soul,
and break me in pieces with words?


018:019:003
These ten times have ye reproached me:
ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.


018:019:004
And be it indeed that I have erred,
mine error remaineth with myself.


018:019:005
If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me,
and plead against me my reproach:


018:019:006
Know now that God hath overthrown me,
and hath compassed me with his net.


018:019:007
Behold,
I cry out of wrong,
but I am not heard:
I cry aloud,
but there is no judgment.


018:019:008
He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass,
and he hath set darkness in my paths.


018:019:009
He hath stripped me of my glory,
and taken the crown from my head.


018:019:010
He hath destroyed me on every side,
and I am gone:
and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.


018:019:011
He hath also kindled his wrath against me,
and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.


018:019:012
His troops come together,
and raise up their way against me,
and encamp round about my tabernacle.


018:019:013
He hath put my brethren far from me,
and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.


018:019:014
My kinsfolk have failed,
and my familiar friends have forgotten me.


018:019:015
They that dwell in mine house,
and my maids,
count me for a stranger:
I am an alien in their sight.


018:019:016
I called my servant,
and he gave me no answer;
I intreated him with my mouth.


018:019:017
My breath is strange to my wife,
though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.


018:019:018
Yea,
young children despised me;
I arose,
and they spake against me.


018:019:019
All my inward friends abhorred me:
and they whom I loved are turned against me.


018:019:020
My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh,
and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.


018:019:021
Have pity upon me,
have pity upon me,
O ye my friends;
for the hand of God hath touched me.


018:019:022
Why do ye persecute me as God,
and are not satisfied with my flesh?


018:019:023
Oh that my words were now written!
oh that they were printed in a book!


018:019:024
That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!


018:019:025
For I know that my redeemer liveth,
and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:


018:019:026
And though after my skin worms destroy this body,
yet in my flesh shall I see God:


018:019:027
Whom I shall see for myself,
and mine eyes shall behold,
and not another;
though my reins be consumed within me.


018:019:028
But ye should say,
Why persecute we him,
seeing the root of the matter is found in me?


018:019:029
Be ye afraid of the sword:
for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword,
that ye may know there is a judgment.
