Job Feels Insulted

1 Then Job Iresponded,
  2 “How long will you torment Ime
  And crush me with words?
  3 “These ten times you have insulted me;
  You are not ashamed to wrong me.
  4 “Even if I have truly erred,
  My error lodges with me.
  5 “If indeed you avaunt yourselves against me
  And prove my disgrace to me,
  6 Know then that aGod has wronged me
  And has closed bHis net around me.

Everything Is against Him

  7 ¶ “Behold, aI cry, ‘Violence!’ but I get no answer;
  I shout for help, but there is no justice.
  8 “He has awalled up my way so that I cannot pass,
  And He has put bdarkness on my paths.
  9 “He has astripped my honor from me
  And removed the bcrown from my head.
  10 “He abreaks me down on every side, and I am gone;
  And He has uprooted my bhope clike a tree.
  11 “He has also akindled His anger against me
  And bconsidered me as His enemy.
  12 “His atroops come together,
  And bbuild up their Iway against me
  And camp around my tent.

Job, complaining of his friends' cruelty, sheweth there is misery enough in him to feed their cruelty.

1 ¶ Then Job answered and said, 2 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words? 3 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed [that] ye make yourselves strange to me. 4 And be it indeed [that] I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself. 5 If indeed ye will magnify [yourselves] against me, and plead against me my reproach: 6 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net. 7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but [there is] no judgment. 8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths. 9 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown [from] my head. 10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree. 11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as [one of] his enemies. 12 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle. 13 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me. 14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me. 15 They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight. 16 I called my servant, and he gave [me] no answer; I intreated him with my mouth. 17 My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's [sake] of mine own body. 18 Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me. 19 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me. 20 My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
