Job 6:1 - 6:7

Job Answers Eliphaz

Then Job answered and said,
“Oh that my vexation were actually weighed
And laid in the balances together with my destruction!
For then it would be heavier than the sand of the seas;
Therefore my words have been rash.
For the arrows of the Almighty are within me,
Their poison my spirit drinks;
The horrors of God are arranged against me.
Does the wild donkey bray over his grass,
Or does the ox low over his fodder?
Can something tasteless be eaten without salt,
Or is there any taste in the slime of a yolk?
My soul refuses to touch them;
They are like loathsome food to me.
