Job 19 (WEBP)

[1] Then Job answered,
[2] “How long will you torment me, and crush me with words?
[3] You have reproached me ten times. You aren’t ashamed that you attack me.
[4] If it is true that I have erred, my error remains with myself.
[5] If indeed you will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach,
[6] know now that God has subverted me, and has surrounded me with his net.
[7] “Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard. I cry for help, but there is no justice.
[8] He has walled up my way so that I can’t pass, and has set darkness in my paths.
[9] He has stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
[10] He has broken me down on every side, and I am gone. He has plucked my hope up like a tree.
[11] He has also kindled his wrath against me. He counts me among his adversaries.
[12] His troops come on together, build a siege ramp against me, and encamp around my tent.
[13] “He has put my brothers far from me. My acquaintances are wholly estranged from me.
[14] My relatives have gone away. My familiar friends have forgotten me.
[15] Those who dwell in my house and my maids consider me a stranger. I am an alien in their sight.
[16] I call to my servant, and he gives me no answer. I beg him with my mouth.
[17] My breath is offensive to my wife. I am loathsome to the children of my own mother.
[18] Even young children despise me. If I arise, they speak against me.
[19] All my familiar friends abhor me. They whom I loved have turned against me.
[20] My bones stick to my skin and to my flesh. I have escaped by the skin of my teeth.
[21] “Have pity on me. Have pity on me, you my friends, for the hand of God has touched me.
[22] Why do you persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
[23] “Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!
[24] That with an iron pen and lead they were engraved in the rock forever!
[25] But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth.
[26] After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh,
[27] whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. “My heart is consumed within me.
[28] If you say, ‘How we will persecute him!’ because the root of the matter is found in me,
[29] be afraid of the sword, for wrath brings the punishments of the sword, that you may know there is a judgment.”

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 19 (YLT)

[1] And Job answereth and saith:-
[2] Till when do ye afflict my soul, And bruise me with words?
[3] These ten times ye put me to shame, ye blush not. Ye make yourselves strange to me-
[4] And also-truly, I have erred, With me doth my error remain.
[5] If, truly, over me ye magnify yourselves, And decide against me my reproach;
[6] Know now, that God turned me upside down, And His net against me hath set round,
[7] Lo, I cry out-violence, and am not answered, I cry aloud, and there is no judgment.
[8] My way He hedged up, and I pass not over, And on my paths darkness He placeth.
[9] Mine honour from off me He hath stripped, And He turneth the crown from my head.
[10] He breaketh me down round about, and I go, And removeth like a tree my hope.
[11] And He kindleth against me His anger, And reckoneth me to Him as His adversaries.
[12] Come in do His troops together, And they raise up against me their way, And encamp round about my tent.
[13] My brethren from me He hath put far off, And mine acquaintances surely Have been estranged from me.
[14] Ceased have my neighbours And my familiar friends have forgotten me,
[15] Sojourners of my house and my maids, For a stranger reckon me: An alien I have been in their eyes.
[16] To my servant I have called, And he doth not answer, With my mouth I make supplication to him.
[17] My spirit is strange to my wife, And my favours to the sons of my mother’s womb.
[18] Also sucklings have despised me, I rise, and they speak against me.
[19] Abominate me do all the men of my counsel, And those I have loved, Have been turned against me.
[20] To my skin and to my flesh Cleaved hath my bone, And I deliver myself with the skin of my teeth.
[21] Pity me, pity me, ye my friends, For the hand of God hath stricken against me.
[22] Why do you pursue me as God? And with my flesh are not satisfied?
[23] Who doth grant now, That my words may be written? Who doth grant that in a book they may be graven?
[24] With a pen of iron and lead- For ever in a rock they may be hewn.
[25] That-I have known my Redeemer, The Living and the Last, For the dust he doth rise.
[26] And after my skin hath compassed this body, Then from my flesh I see God:
[27] Whom I-I see on my side, And mine eyes have beheld, and not a stranger, Consumed have been my reins in my bosom.
[28] But ye say, ‘Why do we pursue after him?’ And the root of the matter hath been found in me.
[29] Be ye afraid because of the sword, For furious are the punishments of the sword, That ye may know that there is a judgment.
