Job 6: 14-30


14 ‘Those who withhold* kindness from a friend
   forsake the fear of the Almighty.*
15 My companions are treacherous like a torrent-bed,
   like freshets that pass away,
16 that run dark with ice,
   turbid with melting snow.
17 In time of heat they disappear;
   when it is hot, they vanish from their place.
18 The caravans turn aside from their course;
   they go up into the waste, and perish.
19 The caravans of Tema look,
   the travellers of Sheba hope.
20 They are disappointed because they were confident;
   they come there and are confounded.
21 Such you have now become to me;*
   you see my calamity, and are afraid.
22 Have I said, “Make me a gift”?
   Or, “From your wealth offer a bribe for me”?
23 Or, “Save me from an opponent’s hand”?
   Or, “Ransom me from the hand of oppressors”?


24 ‘Teach me, and I will be silent;
   make me understand how I have gone wrong.
25 How forceful are honest words!
   But your reproof, what does it reprove?
26 Do you think that you can reprove words,
   as if the speech of the desperate were wind?
27 You would even cast lots over the orphan,
   and bargain over your friend.


28 ‘But now, be pleased to look at me;
   for I will not lie to your face.
29 Turn, I pray, let no wrong be done.
   Turn now, my vindication is at stake.
30 Is there any wrong on my tongue?
   Cannot my taste discern calamity?
