Job 16:7-14 World English Bible (WEB)

But now, God, you have surely worn me out.
    You have made desolate all my company.
You have shriveled me up. This is a witness against me.
    My leanness rises up against me.
    It testifies to my face.
He has torn me in his wrath, and persecuted me.
    He has gnashed on me with his teeth.
    My adversary sharpens his eyes on me.
10 They have gaped on me with their mouth.
    They have struck me on the cheek reproachfully.
    They gather themselves together against me.
11 God delivers me to the ungodly,
    and casts me into the hands of the wicked.
12 I was at ease, and he broke me apart.
    Yes, he has taken me by the neck, and dashed me to pieces.
    He has also set me up for his target.
13 His archers surround me.
    He splits my kidneys apart, and does not spare.
    He pours out my gall on the ground.
14 He breaks me with breach on breach.
    He runs on me like a giant.

Job 16:7-14 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“But now He has exhausted me;
You have laid waste all my company.
“You have shriveled me up,
It has become a witness;
And my leanness rises up against me,
It testifies to my face.
“His anger has torn me and [a]hunted me down,
He has gnashed at me with His teeth;
My adversary [b]glares at me.
10 “They have gaped at me with their mouth,
They have [c]slapped me on the cheek with contempt;
They have massed themselves against me.
11 “God hands me over to ruffians
And tosses me into the hands of the wicked.
12 “I was at ease, but He shattered me,
And He has grasped me by the neck and shaken me to pieces;
He has also set me up as His target.
13 “His arrows surround me.
Without mercy He splits my kidneys open;
He pours out my gall on the ground.
14 “He breaks through me with breach after breach;
He runs at me like a warrior.
