Job 16 - Versions
Job 16 Text (WEB)
  1. Then Job answered,
  2. "I have heard many such things. You are all miserable comforters!
  3. Shall vain words have an end? Or what provokes you that you answer?
  4. I also could speak as you do. If your soul were in my soul's place, I could join words together against you, and shake my head at you,
  5. but I would strengthen you with my mouth. The solace of my lips would relieve you.
  6. "Though I speak, my grief is not subsided. Though I forbear, what am I eased?
  7. But now, God, you have surely worn me out. You have made desolate all my company.
  8. You have shriveled me up. This is a witness against me. My leanness rises up against me. It testifies to my face.
  9. He has torn me in his wrath, and persecuted me. He has gnashed on me with his teeth. My adversary sharpens his eyes on me.
  10. They have gaped on me with their mouth. They have struck me on the cheek reproachfully. They gather themselves together against me.
  11. God delivers me to the ungodly, and casts me into the hands of the wicked.
  12. I was at ease, and he broke me apart. Yes, he has taken me by the neck, and dashed me to pieces. He has also set me up for his target.
  13. His archers surround me. He splits my kidneys apart, and does not spare. He pours out my gall on the ground.
  14. He breaks me with breach on breach. He runs on me like a giant.
  15. I have sewed sackcloth on my skin, and have thrust my horn in the dust.
  16. My face is red with weeping. Deep darkness is on my eyelids.
  17. Although there is no violence in my hands, and my prayer is pure.
  18. "Earth, don't cover my blood. Let my cry have no place to rest.
  19. Even now, behold, my witness is in heaven. He who vouches for me is on high.
  20. My friends scoff at me. My eyes pour out tears to God,
  21. that he would maintain the right of a man with God, of a son of man with his neighbor!
  22. For when a few years are come, I shall go the way of no return.
Job 16 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויען איוב ויאמר׃
  2. שמעתי כאלה רבות מנחמי עמל כלכם׃
  3. הקץ לדברי־רוח או מה־ימריצך כי תענה׃
  4. גם אנכי ככם אדברה לו־יש נפשכם תחת נפשי אחבירה עליכם במלים ואניעה עליכם במו ראשי׃
  5. אאמצכם במו־פי וניד שפתי יחשך׃
  6. אם־אדברה לא־יחשך כאבי ואחדלה מה־מני יהלך׃
  7. אך־עתה הלאני השמות כל־עדתי׃
  8. ותקמטני לעד היה ויקם בי כחשי בפני יענה׃
  9. אפו טרף וישטמני חרק עלי בשניו צרי ילטוש עיניו לי׃
  10. פערו עלי בפיהם בחרפה הכו לחיי יחד עלי יתמלאון׃
  11. יסגירני אל אל עויל ועל־ידי רשעים ירטני׃
  12. שלו הייתי ויפרפרני ואחז בערפי ויפצפצני ויקימני לו למטרה׃
  13. יסבו עלי רביו יפלח כליותי ולא יחמול ישפך לארץ מררתי׃
  14. יפרצני פרץ על־פני־פרץ ירץ עלי כגבור׃
  15. שק תפרתי עלי גלדי ועללתי בעפר קרני׃
  16. פני מני־בכי ועל עפעפי צלמות׃
  17. על לא־חמס בכפי ותפלתי זכה׃
  18. ארץ אל־תכסי דמי ואל־יהי מקום לזעקתי׃
  19. גם־עתה הנה־בשמים עדי ושהדי במרומים׃
  20. מליצי רעי אל־אלוה דלפה עיני׃
  21. ויוכח לגבר עם־אלוה ובן־אדם לרעהו׃
  22. כי־שנות מספר יאתיו וארח לא־אשוב אהלך׃
Job 16 Text (Greek)
  1. υπολαβων δε ιωβ
  2. ακηκοα τοιαυτα πολλα παρακλητορες κακων
  3. τι γαρ μη ταξις εστιν ρημασιν πνευματος η τι παρενοχλησει σοι οτι
  4. καγω καθ' υμας λαλησω ει υπεκειτο γε η ψυχη υμων αντι της εμης ειτ' εναλουμαι υμιν ρημασιν κινησω δε καθ' υμων
  5. ειη δε ισχυς εν τω στοματι μου κινησιν δε χειλεων ου
  6. εαν γαρ λαλησω ουκ αλγησω το τραυμα εαν δε και σιωπησω τι ελαττον
  7. νυν δε κατακοπον με πεποιηκεν μωρον
  8. και επελαβου μου εις μαρτυριον εγενηθη και ανεστη εν εμοι το ψευδος μου κατα προσωπον μου
  9. ακισιν οφθαλμων ενηλατο οξει επαισεν με εις σιαγονα ομοθυμαδον δε κατεδραμον επ'
  10. ακισιν οφθαλμων ενηλατο οξει επαισεν με εις σιαγονα ομοθυμαδον δε κατεδραμον επ'
  11. παρεδωκεν γαρ με ο κυριος εις χειρας αδικου επι δε ασεβεσιν ερριψεν
  12. ειρηνευοντα διεσκεδασεν με λαβων με της κομης διετιλεν κατεστησεν με ωσπερ
  13. εκυκλωσαν με λογχαις βαλλοντες εις νεφρους μου ου φειδομενοι εξεχεαν εις την γην την χολην
  14. κατεβαλον με πτωμα επι πτωματι εδραμον προς με
  15. σακκον ερραψα επι βυρσης μου το δε σθενος μου εν γη
  16. η γαστηρ μου συγκεκαυται απο κλαυθμου επι δε βλεφαροις μου
  17. αδικον δε ουδεν ην εν χερσιν μου ευχη δε μου
  18. γη μη επικαλυψης εφ' αιματι της σαρκος μου μηδε ειη τοπος τη κραυγη
  19. και νυν ιδου εν ουρανοις ο μαρτυς μου ο δε συνιστωρ μου εν
  20. αφικοιτο μου η δεησις προς κυριον εναντι δε αυτου σταζοι μου ο
  21. ειη δε ελεγχος ανδρι εναντι κυριου και υιος ανθρωπου τω πλησιον
  22. ετη δε αριθμητα ηκασιν οδω δε η ουκ επαναστραφησομαι
Job 16 Text (Latin)
  1. Respondens autem Job, dixit :
  2. Audivi frequenter talia : consolatores onerosi omnes vos estis.
  3. Numquid habebunt finem verba ventosa ? aut aliquid tibi molestum est, si loquaris ?
  4. Poteram et ego similia vestri loqui : atque utinam esset anima vestra pro anima mea !
  5. Roborarem vos ore meo, et moverem labia mea, quasi parcens vobis.
  6. Sed quid agam ? Si locutus fuero, non quiescet dolor meus, et si tacuero, non recedet a me.
  7. Nunc autem oppressit me dolor meus, et in nihilum redacti sunt omnes artus mei.
  8. Rugæ meæ testimonium dicunt contra me, et suscitatur falsiloquus adversus faciem meam, contradicens mihi.
  9. Collegit furorem suum in me, et comminans mihi, infremuit contra me dentibus suis : hostis meus terribilibus oculis me intuitus est.
  10. Aperuerunt super me ora sua, et exprobrantes percusserunt maxillam meam : saciati sunt pœnis meis.
  11. Conclusit me Deus apud iniquum, et manibus impiorum me tradidit.
  12. Ego ille quondam opulentus, repente contritus sum : tenuit cervicem meam, confregit me, et posuit me sibi quasi in signum.
  13. Circumdedit me lanceis suis, convulneravit lumbos meos : non pepercit, et effudit in terra viscera mea.
  14. Concidit me vulnere super vulnus : irruit in me quasi gigas.
  15. Saccum consui super cutem meam, et operui cinere carnem meam.
  16. Facies mea intumuit a fletu, et palpebræ meæ caligaverunt.
  17. Hæc passus sum absque iniquitate manus meæ, cum haberem mundas ad Deum preces.
  18. Terra, ne operias sanguinem meum, neque inveniat in te locum latendi clamor meus :
  19. ecce enim in cælo testis meus et conscius meus in excelsis.
  20. Verbosi amivi mei : ad Deum stillat oculus meus :
  21. atque utinam sic judicaretur vir cum Deo, quomodo judicatur filius hominis cum collega suo !
  22. Ecce enim breves anni transeunt : et semitam per quam non revertar ambulo.
Job 16 Text (KJV)
  1. Then Job answered and said,
  2. I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all.
  3. Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest?
  4. I also could speak as ye do: if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you.
  5. But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief.
  6. Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased?
  7. But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all my company.
  8. And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face.
  9. He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.
  10. They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me.
  11. God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.
  12. I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder: he hath also taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me up for his mark.
  13. His archers compass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground.
  14. He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant.
  15. I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust.
  16. My face is foul with weeping, and my eyelids is the shadow of death;
  17. Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure.
  18. O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place.
  19. Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high.
  20. My friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears unto God.
  21. O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour!
  22. When a few years are come, then I shall go the way whence I shall not return.
