1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
6:1 ¶ Then responded Job, and said:
6:2 Oh that, weighed, were my vexation, and, my engulfing ruininto the balances, they would lift up all at once!
6:3 For, now, beyond the sand of the seas, would it be heavy, On this account, my words, have wandered.
6:4 For, the arrows of the Almighty, are in me, The heat whereof, my spirit is drinking up, The, terrors of GOD, array themselves against me.
6:5 Doth the wild ass bray over grass? Or loweth the ox over his fodder?
6:6 Can that which hath no savour be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
6:7 My soul hath refused to touch, Those things, are like disease in my food.
6:8 ¶ Oh that my request would come! and, my hope, oh that GOD would grant!
6:9 That it would please GOD to crush me, That he would set free his hand, and cut me off!
6:10 So might it still be my comfort, And I might exult in the anguish he would not spare,That I had not concealed the sayings of the Holy One.
6:11 What is my strength, that I should hope? Or what mine end, that I should prolong my desire?
6:12 Is my strength, the strength of stones? Or is, my flesh, of bronze?
6:13 Is there any help at all in me? Is not, abiding success, driven from me?
6:14 ¶ The despairing, from his friend, should have lovingkindness, or, the reverence of the Almighty, he may forsake.
6:15 Mine own brethren, have proved treacherous like a torrent, like a channel of torrents which disappear:
6:16 Which darken by reason of the cold, over them, is a covering made by the snow:
6:17 By the time they begin to thaw, they are dried up, as soon as it is warm, they have vanished out of their place.
6:18 Caravans turn aside by their course, they go up into a waste, and are lost:
6:19 The caravans of Tema looked about, the travelling companies of Sheba, hoped for them:
6:20 They are ashamed that they had trusted, They have come up to one of them, and are confounded.
6:21 For, now, ye have come to him, ye see something fearful, and fear.
6:22 ¶ Is it that I said, Make me a gift, or, out of your abundance, offer a bribe on my behalf;
6:23 And deliver me from the hand of the adversary? And, out of the hand of tyrants, ransom me?
6:24 Show me, and, I, will hold my peace, And, wherein I have erred, cause me to understand.
6:25 How pleasant are the sayings that are right! But what can a decision from you, decide?
6:26 To decide words, do ye intend, When, to the wind, are spoken the sayings of one in despair?
6:27 Surely, the fatherless, ye would assail, and make merchandise of your friend!
6:28 But, now, be pleased to turn to me, that it may be, to your faces, if I speak falsehood,
6:29 Reply, I pray you, let there be no perversity, Yea reply even yet, my vindication is in it!
6:30 Is there, in my tongue, perversity? Or can, my sense, not discern, engulfing ruin?
