38 “My land did not cry out against me.
    Its plowed rows were not wet with tears.
39 I did not take the land’s harvest without paying.
    I did not break the spirit of those who took care of the land.
40 If I did, then let thorns come up instead of wheat.
    And let weeds come up instead of barley.”

The words of Job are finished.

40 then let briers(E) come up instead of wheat
    and stinkweed(F) instead of barley.”
