Job 6:1-4 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Job Replies: My Complaint Is Just

Then Job answered:

“O that my vexation were weighed,
    and all my calamity laid in the balances!
For then it would be heavier than the sand of the sea;
    therefore my words have been rash.
For the arrows of the Almighty are in me;
    my spirit drinks their poison;
    the terrors of God are arrayed against me.

Job 6:8-15 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

“O that I might have my request,
    and that God would grant my desire;
that it would please God to crush me,
    that he would let loose his hand and cut me off!
10 This would be my consolation;
    I would even exult[a] in pain unsparing;
    for I have not denied the words of the Holy One.
11 What is my strength, that I should wait?
    And what is my end, that I should be patient?
12 Is my strength the strength of stones,
    or is my flesh bronze?
13 In truth I have no help in me,
    and any resource is driven from me.

14 “He who withholds[b] kindness from a friend
    forsakes the fear of the Almighty.
15 My brethren are treacherous as a torrent-bed,
    as freshets that pass away,
