1Then Job replied:1וַיַּ֥עַן אִיּ֗וֹב וַיֹּאמַֽר׃
2“If only my grief could be weighed and placed with my calamity on the scales.2ל֗וּ שָׁק֣וֹל יִשָּׁקֵ֣ל כַּעְשִׂ֑י [והיתי] (וְ֝הַוָּתִ֗י) בְּֽמֹאזְנַ֥יִם יִשְׂאוּ־ יָֽחַד׃
3For then it would outweigh the sand of the seas—no wonder my words have been rash.3כִּֽי־ עַתָּ֗ה מֵח֣וֹל יַמִּ֣ים יִכְבָּ֑ד עַל־ כֵּ֝֗ן דְּבָרַ֥י לָֽעוּ׃
4For the arrows of the Almighty have pierced me; my spirit drinks in their poison; the terrors of God are arrayed against me.4כִּ֤י חִצֵּ֪י שַׁדַּ֡י עִמָּדִ֗י אֲשֶׁ֣ר חֲ֭מָתָם שֹׁתָ֣ה רוּחִ֑י בִּעוּתֵ֖י אֱל֣וֹהַּ יַֽעַרְכֽוּנִי׃
5Does a wild donkey bray over fresh grass, or an ox low over its fodder?5הֲיִֽנְהַק־ פֶּ֥רֶא עֲלֵי־ דֶ֑שֶׁא אִ֥ם יִגְעֶה־ שּׁ֝֗וֹר עַל־ בְּלִילֽוֹ׃
6Is tasteless food eaten without salt, or is there flavor in the white of an egg?6הֲיֵאָכֵ֣ל תָּ֭פֵל מִבְּלִי־ מֶ֑לַח אִם־ יֶשׁ־ טַ֝֗עַם בְּרִ֣יר חַלָּמֽוּת׃
7My soul refuses to touch them; they are loathsome food to me.7מֵאֲנָ֣ה לִנְגּ֣וֹעַ נַפְשִׁ֑י הֵ֝֗מָּה כִּדְוֵ֥י לַחְמִֽי׃
8If only my request were granted and God would fulfill my hope:8מִֽי־ יִ֭תֵּן תָּב֣וֹא שֶֽׁאֱלָתִ֑י וְ֝תִקְוָתִ֗י יִתֵּ֥ן אֱלֽוֹהַּ׃
9that God would be willing to crush me, to unleash His hand and cut me off!9וְיֹאֵ֣ל אֱ֭לוֹהַּ וִֽידַכְּאֵ֑נִי יַתֵּ֥ר יָ֝ד֗וֹ וִֽיבַצְּעֵֽנִי׃
10It still brings me comfort, and joy through unrelenting pain, that I have not denied the words of the Holy One.10וּ֥תְהִי ע֨וֹד ׀ נֶ֘חָ֤מָתִ֗י וַאֲסַלְּדָ֣ה בְ֭חִילָה לֹ֣א יַחְמ֑וֹל כִּי־ לֹ֥א כִ֝חַ֗דְתִּי אִמְרֵ֥י קָדֽוֹשׁ׃
11What strength do I have, that I should still hope? What is my future, that I should be patient?11מַה־ כֹּחִ֥י כִֽי־ אֲיַחֵ֑ל וּמַה־ קִּ֝צִּ֗י כִּֽי־ אַאֲרִ֥יךְ נַפְשִֽׁי׃
12Is my strength like that of stone, or my flesh made of bronze?12אִם־ כֹּ֣חַ אֲבָנִ֣ים כֹּחִ֑י אִֽם־ בְּשָׂרִ֥י נָחֽוּשׁ׃
13Is there any help within me, now that success is driven from me?13הַאִ֬ם אֵ֣ין עֶזְרָתִ֣י בִ֑י וְ֝תֻשִׁיָּ֗ה נִדְּחָ֥ה מִמֶּֽנִּי׃
14A despairing man should have the kindness of his friend, even if he forsakes the fear of the Almighty.14לַמָּ֣ס מֵרֵעֵ֣הוּ חָ֑סֶד וְיִרְאַ֖ת שַׁדַּ֣י יַעֲזֽוֹב׃
15But my brothers are as faithless as wadis, as seasonal streams that overflow,15אַ֭חַי בָּגְד֣וּ כְמוֹ־ נָ֑חַל כַּאֲפִ֖יק נְחָלִ֣ים יַעֲבֹֽרוּ׃
16darkened because of the ice and the inflow of melting snow,16הַקֹּדְרִ֥ים מִנִּי־ קָ֑רַח עָ֝לֵ֗ימוֹ יִתְעַלֶּם־ שָֽׁלֶג׃
17but ceasing in the dry season and vanishing from their channels in the heat.17בְּ֭עֵת יְזֹרְב֣וּ נִצְמָ֑תוּ בְּ֝חֻמּ֗וֹ נִדְעֲכ֥וּ מִמְּקוֹמָֽם׃
18Caravans turn aside from their routes; they go into the wasteland and perish.18יִ֭לָּ֣פְתוּ אָרְח֣וֹת דַּרְכָּ֑ם יַעֲל֖וּ בַתֹּ֣הוּ וְיֹאבֵֽדוּ׃
19The caravans of Tema look for water; the travelers of Sheba hope to find it.19הִ֭בִּיטוּ אָרְח֣וֹת תֵּמָ֑א הֲלִיכֹ֥ת שְׁ֝בָ֗א קִוּוּ־ לָֽמוֹ׃
20They are confounded because they had hoped; their arrival brings disappointment.20בֹּ֥שׁוּ כִּֽי־ בָטָ֑ח בָּ֥אוּ‪‬ עָ֝דֶ֗יהָ וַיֶּחְפָּֽרוּ׃
21For now you are of no help; you see terror, and you are afraid.21כִּֽי־ עַ֭תָּה הֱיִ֣יתֶם [לא] (ל֑וֹ) תִּֽרְא֥וּ חֲ֝תַ֗ת וַתִּירָֽאוּ׃
22Have I ever said: ’Give me something; offer me a bribe from your wealth;22הֲ‍ֽכִי־ אָ֭מַרְתִּי הָ֣בוּ לִ֑י וּ֝מִכֹּחֲכֶ֗ם שִׁחֲד֥וּ בַעֲדִֽי׃
23deliver me from the hand of the enemy; redeem me from the grasp of the ruthless’?23וּמַלְּט֥וּנִי מִיַּד־ צָ֑ר וּמִיַּ֖ד עָרִיצִ֣ים תִּפְדּֽוּנִי׃
24Teach me, and I will be silent. Help me understand how I have erred.24ה֭וֹרוּנִי וַאֲנִ֣י אַחֲרִ֑ישׁ וּמַה־ שָּׁ֝גִ֗יתִי הָבִ֥ינוּ לִֽי׃
25How painful are honest words! But what does your argument prove?25מַה־ נִּמְרְצ֥וּ אִמְרֵי־ יֹ֑שֶׁר וּמַה־ יּוֹכִ֖יחַ הוֹכֵ֣חַ מִכֶּֽם׃
26Do you intend to correct my words, and treat as wind my cry of despair?26הַלְהוֹכַ֣ח מִלִּ֣ים תַּחְשֹׁ֑בוּ וּ֝לְר֗וּחַ אִמְרֵ֥י נֹאָֽשׁ׃
27You would even cast lots for an orphan and barter away your friend.27אַף־ עַל־ יָת֥וֹם תַּפִּ֑ילוּ וְ֝תִכְר֗וּ עַל־ רֵֽיעֲכֶֽם׃
28But now, please look at me. Would I lie to your face?28וְ֭עַתָּה הוֹאִ֣ילוּ פְנוּ־ בִ֑י וְעַל־ פְּ֝נֵיכֶ֗ם אִם־ אֲכַזֵּֽב׃
29Reconsider; do not be unjust. Reconsider, for my righteousness is at stake.29שֻֽׁבוּ־ נָ֭א אַל־ תְּהִ֣י עַוְלָ֑ה [ושבי] (וְשׁ֥וּבוּ‪‬) ע֝וֹד צִדְקִי־ בָֽהּ׃
30Is there iniquity on my tongue? Can my mouth not discern malice?30הֲיֵשׁ־ בִּלְשׁוֹנִ֥י עַוְלָ֑ה אִם־ חִ֝כִּ֗י לֹא־ יָבִ֥ין הַוּֽוֹת׃
