Job 9:16-18 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
16 If I had called, and he had answered me;
yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.
17 For he breaketh me with a tempest,
and multiplieth my wounds without cause.
18 He will not suffer me to take my breath,
but filleth me with bitterness.
Job 9:16-18 New International Version (NIV)
16 Even if I summoned him and he responded,
I do not believe he would give me a hearing.
17 He would crush me with a storm
and multiply my wounds for no reason.
18 He would not let me catch my breath
but would overwhelm me with misery.
