And break me in pieces with words?
3 These aten times have ye reproached me:
Ye are not ashamed that ye ||make yourselves strange to me.
Mine error remaineth with myself.
5 If indeed ye will bmagnify yourselves against me,
And plead against me my reproach:
6 Know now that God hath coverthrown me,
And hath compassed me with his net.
dI cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
8 eHe hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass,
And he hath set darkness in my paths.
9 fHe hath stripped me of my glory,
And taken gthe crown from my head.
10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and hI am gone:
And mine hope hath he removed like a tree.
And he icounteth me unto him as one of his enemies.
12 jHis troops come together,
And kraise up their way against me,
And encamp round about my ltabernacle.
13 He hath put my mbrethren far from me,
And mine nacquaintance are verily estranged from me.
14 My okinsfolk have failed,
And my pfamiliar friends have forgotten me.
15 They that qdwell in mine house, and my maids,
Count me for a stranger:
I am an alien in their sight.
I intreated him with my mouth.
17 rMy breath is strange to my wife,
Though I intreated for the children’s sake of †mine own body.
18 Yea, ||young children despised me;
I arose, and sthey spake against me.
And they whom I loved are turned against me.
And I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
21 xHave pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends;
For ythe hand of God hath touched me.
22 Why do ye zpersecute me as God,
And aare not satisfied with my flesh?
23 †Oh that my words were now written!
24 That they were graven dwith an iron pen and lead
In the rock efor ever!
Yet lin my flesh shall I see God:
27 Whom I shall see mfor myself,
And mine eyes shall behold, and not †another;
||Seeing the root of the matter is found in me?
29 Be ye afraid of qthe sword:
For wrath bringeth rthe punishments of the sword,
That ye may know sthere is a judgment.
