No Abuse of the Land

38 “If my land were to cry out against me
    or if all its furrows wept as one,
39 If I’ve consumed its produce[a] without paying for it
    and snuffed out the life of its owners;
40 may thorns spring up instead of wheat,
    and obnoxious weeds instead of barley.”

With this, Job’s discourse with his friends[b] is completed.
