“God All-Powerful has been unfair to me; he has made my life bitter. But I swear by his life,
“As God lives, who has taken away my right, and the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter,
“As God lives, who has taken away my right, and the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter,

The living God hath taken away my judgment: for the Almighty hath put my soul in bitterness.
“I swear an oath by God, the one who has taken away my rights, by the Almighty, who has made my life bitter:
I swear by the living Almighty God, who refuses me justice and makes my life bitter—

As God lives, he has removed my justice, and Shaddai has made my inner self bitter.
“I vow by the living God, who has taken away my rights, even the Almighty God who has embittered my soul,
Having waited for Zophar, Job now resumed his defense: “God-Alive! He’s denied me justice! God Almighty! He’s ruined my life! But for as long as I draw breath, and for as long as God breathes life into me, I refuse to say one word that isn’t true. I refuse to confess to any charge that’s false. There is no way I’ll ever agree to your accusations. I’ll not deny my integrity even if it costs me my life. I’m holding fast to my integrity and not loosening my grip— and, believe me, I’ll never regret it.
“As God lives, who has taken away my judgment, and the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter,

“As surely as God lives, who has taken away my rights, the Almighty, who has made me unhappy,
“As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice, the Almighty, who has made my life bitter—
“God hasn’t treated me fairly. The Mighty One has made my life bitter. You can be sure that God lives. And here’s something else you can be sure of.
“As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice, the Almighty, who has made my life bitter,
‘As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice, the Almighty, who has made my life bitter,
As God lives, who has taken away my justice, And the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter,
“As God lives, Who has taken away my right, and the All-powerful, Who has troubled my soul,
