Job 6 (WEBP)
 Then Job answered,
 “Oh that my anguish were weighed, and all my calamity laid in the balances!
 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the seas, therefore my words have been rash.
 For the arrows of the Almighty are within me. My spirit drinks up their poison. The terrors of God set themselves in array against me.
 Does the wild donkey bray when he has grass? Or does the ox low over his fodder?
 Can that which has no flavor be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
 My soul refuses to touch them. They are as loathsome food to me.
 “Oh that I might have my request, that God would grant the thing that I long for,
 even that it would please God to crush me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
 Let it still be my consolation, yes, let me exult in pain that doesn’t spare, that I have not denied the words of the Holy One.
 What is my strength, that I should wait? What is my end, that I should be patient?
 Is my strength the strength of stones? Or is my flesh of bronze?
 Isn’t it that I have no help in me, that wisdom is driven away from me?
 “To him who is ready to faint, kindness should be shown from his friend; even to him who forsakes the fear of the Almighty.
 My brothers have dealt deceitfully as a brook, as the channel of brooks that pass away;
 which are black by reason of the ice, in which the snow hides itself.
 In the dry season, they vanish. When it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.
 The caravans that travel beside them turn away. They go up into the waste, and perish.
 The caravans of Tema looked. The companies of Sheba waited for them.
 They were distressed because they were confident. They came there, and were confounded.
 For now you are nothing. You see a terror, and are afraid.
 Did I ever say, ‘Give to me’? or, ‘Offer a present for me from your substance’?
 or, ‘Deliver me from the adversary’s hand’? or, ‘Redeem me from the hand of the oppressors’?
 “Teach me, and I will hold my peace. Cause me to understand my error.
 How forcible are words of uprightness! But your reproof, what does it reprove?
 Do you intend to reprove words, since the speeches of one who is desperate are as wind?
 Yes, you would even cast lots for the fatherless, and make merchandise of your friend.
 Now therefore be pleased to look at me, for surely I will not lie to your face.
 Please return. Let there be no injustice. Yes, return again. My cause is righteous.
 Is there injustice on my tongue? Can’t my taste discern mischievous things?

King James w/Strong’s #s
Job 6 (KJVS)
 But Job H347 answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799),
 Oh that H3863 my grief H3708 were throughly H8254 (8800) weighed H8254 (8735), and my calamity H1942 (8675) H1962 laid H5375 (8799) in the balances H3976 together H3162!
 For now it would be heavier H3513 (8799) than the sand H2344 of the sea H3220: therefore my words H1697 are swallowed up H3886 (8804).
 For the arrows H2671 of the Almighty H7706 [are] within H5978 me, the poison H2534 whereof drinketh up H8354 (8802) my spirit H7307: the terrors H1161 of God H433 do set themselves in array H6186 (8799) against me.
 Doth the wild ass H6501 bray H5101 (8799) when he hath grass H1877? or loweth H1600 (8799) the ox H7794 over his fodder H1098?
 Can that which is unsavoury H8602 be eaten H398 (8735) without salt H4417? or is there H3426 [any] taste H2940 in the white H7388 of an egg H2495?
 The things [that] my soul H5315 refused H3985 (8765) to touch H5060 (8800) [are] as my sorrowful H1741 meat H3899.
 Oh that I might have H935 (8799) my request H7596; and that God H433 would grant H5414 (8799) [me] the thing that I long for H8615!
 Even that it would please H2974 (8686) God H433 to destroy H1792 (8762) me; that he would let loose H5425 (8686) his hand H3027, and cut me off H1214 (8762)!
 Then should I yet have comfort H5165; yea, I would harden H5539 (8762) myself in sorrow H2427: let him not spare H2550 (8799); for I have not concealed H3582 (8765) the words H561 of the Holy One H6918.
 What [is] my strength H3581, that I should hope H3176 (8762)? and what [is] mine end H7093, that I should prolong H748 (8686) my life H5315?
 [Is] my strength H3581 the strength H3581 of stones H68? or [is] my flesh H1320 of brass H5153?
 [Is] not my help H5833 in me? and is wisdom H8454 driven quite H5080 (8738) from me?
 To him that is afflicted H4523 pity H2617 [should be shewed] from his friend H7453; but he forsaketh H5800 (8799) the fear H3374 of the Almighty H7706.
 My brethren H251 have dealt deceitfully H898 (8804) as a brook H5158, [and] as the stream H650 of brooks H5158 they pass away H5674 (8799);
 Which are blackish H6937 (8802) by reason of the ice H7140, [and] wherein the snow H7950 is hid H5956 (8691):
 What time H6256 they wax warm H2215 (8792), they vanish H6789 (8738): when it is hot H2527, they are consumed out H1846 (8738) of their place H4725.
 The paths H734 of their way H1870 are turned aside H3943 (8735); they go H5927 (8799) to nothing H8414, and perish H6 (8799).
 The troops H734 of Tema H8485 looked H5027 (8689), the companies H1979 of Sheba H7614 waited H6960 (8765) for them.
 They were confounded H954 (8804) because they had hoped H982 (8804); they came H935 (8804) thither, and were ashamed H2659 (8799).
 For now ye are nothing; ye see H7200 (8799) [my] casting down H2866, and are afraid H3372 (8799).
 Did I say H559 (8804), Bring H3051 (8798) unto me? or, Give a reward H7809 (8798) for me of your substance H3581?
 Or, Deliver H4422 (8761) me from the enemy’s H6862 hand H3027? or, Redeem H6299 (8799) me from the hand H3027 of the mighty H6184?
 Teach H3384 (8685) me, and I will hold my tongue H2790 (8686): and cause me to understand H995 (8685) wherein I have erred H7686 (8804).
 How forcible H4834 (8738) are right H3476 words H561! but what doth your arguing H3198 (8687) reprove H3198 (8686)?
 Do ye imagine H2803 (8799) to reprove H3198 (8687) words H4405, and the speeches H561 of one that is desperate H2976 (8737), [which are] as wind H7307?
 Yea, ye overwhelm H5307 (8686) the fatherless H3490, and ye dig H3738 (8799) [a pit] for your friend H7453.
 Now therefore be content H2974 (8685), look H6437 (8798) upon me; for [it is] evident H6440 unto you if I lie H3576 (8762).
 Return H7725 (8798), I pray you, let it not be iniquity H5766; yea, return again H7725 (8798), my righteousness H6664 [is] in it.
 Is there H3426 iniquity H5766 in my tongue H3956? cannot my taste H2441 discern H995 (8799) perverse things H1942?
Young’s Literal Translation
Job 6 (YLT)
 And Job answereth and saith:-
 O that my provocation were thoroughly weighed, And my calamity in balances They would lift up together!
 For now, than the sands of the sea it is heavier, Therefore my words have been rash.
 For arrows of the Mighty are with me, Whose poison is drinking up my spirit. Terrors of God array themselves for me!
 Brayeth a wild ass over tender grass? Loweth an ox over his provender?
