Job 19 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
19 2 Job reproveth his friends, 8 and reciteth his miseries and grievous pains. 25 He assureth himself of the general resurrection.
1 But Job answered, and said,
2 How long will ye vex my soul, and torment me with words?
3 Ye have now [a]ten times reproached me, and are not ashamed: ye are impudent toward me.
4 And though I had indeed erred, mine error [b]remaineth with me.
5 But indeed if ye will advance yourselves against me, and rebuke me for my reproach,
6 Know now, that God hath [c]overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.
7 Behold, I cry out of violence, but I have none answer: I cry, but there is no judgment.
8 He hath hedged up my way that I cannot [d]pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
9 He hath spoiled me of mine honor, and taken the [e]crown away from mine head.
10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and he hath removed mine hope like [f]a tree.
11 And he hath kindled his wrath against me, and counteth me as one of his enemies.
12 His [g]armies came together, and made their way upon me, and camped about my tabernacle.
13 He hath removed my brethren far from me, and also mine acquaintance were strangers unto me.
14 My neighbors have forsaken me, and my familiars have forgotten me.
15 [h]They that dwell in mine house, and my maids took me for a stranger: for I was a stranger in their sight.
16 I called my servant, but he would not answer, though I prayed him with my mouth.
17 My breath was strange unto my wife, though I prayed her for the children’s sake of mine [i]own body.
18 The wicked also despised me, and when I rose, they spake against me.
19 All my secret friends abhorred me, and they whom I loved, are turned against me.
21 Have pity upon me: have [l]pity upon me, (O ye my friends) for the hand of God hath touched me.
23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were written even in a book,
24 And graven with [o]an iron pen in lead, or in stone forever!
25 For I am sure that my [p]Redeemer liveth, and he shall stand the last on the earth.
26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet shall I see God [q]in my flesh.
27 Whom I myself shall see, and mine eyes shall behold, and none other for me, though my reins are consumed within me.
28 But ye said, Why is he persecuted? And there was a [r]deep matter in me.
29 Be ye afraid of the sword: for the sword will be [s]avenged of wickedness, that ye may know that there is a judgment.
Job 19 New International Version (NIV)
19 Then Job replied:
2 “How long will you torment me
7 “Though I cry, ‘Violence!’ I get no response;
13 “He has alienated my family from me;
21 “Have pity on me, my friends, have pity,
23 “Oh, that my words were recorded,
28 “If you say, ‘How we will hound him,
