Job 6 (KJV)

7 The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.
8 Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
9 Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
10 Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.






11 What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?
12 Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?
13 Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?






14 To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
15 My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;
16 Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid:
17 What time they wax (develop) warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.
18 The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.
19 The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.
20 They were confounded (used for emphasis, especially to express anger or annoyance.)
because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed.






21 For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid.
22 Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance (being)?
23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem (buy back, reclaim) me from the hand of the mighty?






24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.
25 How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove (counsel)?
26 Do ye imagine to reprove (condemn) words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?




Even when it is clear that what you saying is right, let it go.  Don't argue.  Some people speak with an endless tongue.  Train your tongue to stop moving.  Practice self restraint and tame the tongue.  Hard to do, but practice makes perfect :)  Peace is more important than being right. ~ Karmen
