19:1  Then Job answered and said,
19:2  How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?
19:3  These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.
19:4  And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.
19:5  If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:
19:6  Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.
19:7  Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
19:8  He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
19:9  He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
19:10  He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.
19:11  He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.
19:12  His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.
19:13  He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.
19:14  My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.
19:15  They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.
19:16  I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.
19:17  My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.
19:18  Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.
19:19  All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.
19:20  My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
19:21  Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.
19:22  Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
19:23  Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!
19:24  That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!
19:25  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
19:26  And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
19:27  Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
19:28  But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?
19:29  Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
