Job 3:11–26

3:11–26 Vv. 3–10 were set in the form of curses, while these are rhetorical questions. Job gives vent to his frustration, asking why he was not stillborn (vv. 11, 12, 16). Since that did not happen, his frustration moves on to ask rhetorically why he should not have experienced premature death (vv. 20, 23).
