1 Then Job answered and said, 2 How long will ye vex my soul, and destroy me with words? only know that the Lord has dealt with me thus. 3 Ye speak against me; ye do not feel for me, but bear hard upon me. 4 Yea verily, I have erred in truth, (but the error abides with myself) in having spoken words which it was not right [to speak]; and my words err, and are unreasonable. 5 But alas! for ye magnify yourselves against me, and insult me with reproach. 6 Know then that it is the Lord that has troubled [me], and has raised his bulwark against me. 7 Behold, I laugh at reproach; I will not speak: [or] I will cry out, but [there is] nowhere judgment. 8 I am fenced round about, and can by no means escape: he has set darkness before my face. 9 And he has stripped me of my glory, and has taken the crown from my head. 10 He has torn me around about, and I am gone: and he has cut off my hope like a tree. 11 And he has dreadfully handled me in anger, and has counted me for an enemy. 12 His troops also came upon me with one accord, liers in wait compassed my ways. 13 My brethren have stood aloof from me; they have recognized strangers [rather] than me: and my friends have become pitiless. 14 My nearest of kin have not acknowledged me, and they that knew my name, have forgotten me. 15 [As for] my household, and my maid-servants, I was a stranger before them. 16 I called my servant, and he hearkened not; and my mouth intreated [him]. 17 And I besought my wife, and earnestly intreated the sons of my concubines. 18 But they rejected me for ever; whenever I rise up, they speak against me. 19 They that saw me abhorred me: the very persons whom I had loved, rose up against me. 20 My flesh is corrupt under my skin, and my bones are held in [my] teeth. 21 Pity me, pity me, O friends; for it is the hand of the Lord that has touched me. 22 Wherefore do ye persecute me as also the Lord [does], and are not satisfied with my flesh? 23 For oh that my words were written, and that they were recorded in a book forever, 24 with an iron pen and lead, or graven in the rocks! 25 For I know that he is eternal who is about to deliver me, 26 [and] to raise up upon the earth my skin that endures these [sufferings]: for these things have been accomplished to me of the Lord; 27 which I am conscious of in myself, which mine eye has seen, and not another, but all have been fulfilled to me in [my] bosom. 28 But if ye shall also say, What shall we say before him, and [so] find the root of the matter in him? 29 Do ye also beware of deceit: for wrath will come upon transgressors; and then shall they know where their substance is. ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ ᾿Ιὼβ λέγει· 2 ἕως τίνος ἔγκοπον ποιήσετε ψυχήν μου καὶ καθαιρεῖτέ με λόγοις; γνῶτε μόνον ὅτι ὁ Κύριος ἐποίησέ με οὕτως· 3 καταλαλεῖτέ μου, οὐκ αἰσχυνόμενοί με ἐπίκεισθέ μοι. 4 ναὶ δὴ ἐπ᾿ ἀληθείας ἐγὼ ἐπλανήθην, παρ᾿ ἐμοὶ δὲ αὐλίζεται πλάνος λαλῆσαι ῥήματα, ἃ οὐκ ἔδει, τὰ δὲ ρήματά μου πλανᾶται καὶ οὐκ ἐπὶ καιροῦ. 5 ἔα δὲ ὅτι ἐπ᾿ ἐμοὶ μεγαλύνεσθε, ἐνάλλεσθε δέ μοι ὀνείδει. 6 γνῶτε οὖν ὅτι Κύριός ἐστιν ὁ ταράξας, ὀχύρωμα δὲ αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ ὕψωσεν. 7 ἰδοὺ γελῶ ὀνείδει καὶ οὐ λαλήσω· κεκράξομαι, καὶ οὐδαμοῦ κρίμα. 8 κύκλῳ περιῳκοδόμημαι, καὶ οὐ μὴ διαβῶ, ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου σκότος ἔθετο. 9 τὴν δὲ δόξαν ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἐξέδυσεν, ἀφεῖλε δὲ στέφανον ἀπὸ κεφαλῆς μου. 10 διέσπασέ με κύκλῳ καὶ ᾠχόμην· ἐξέκοψε δὲ ὥσπερ δένδρον τὴν ἐλπίδα μου. 11 δεινῶς δέ μοι ὀργῇ ἐχρήσατο, ἡγήσατο δέ με ὥσπερ ἐχθρόν. 12 ὁμοθυμαδὸν δὲ ἦλθον τὰ πειρατήρια αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾿ ἐμοί, ταῖς ὁδοῖς μου ἐκύκλωσαν ἐγκάθετοι. 13 ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἀδελφοί μου ἀπέστησαν, ἔγνωσαν ἀλλοτρίους ἢ ἐμέ· φίλοι δέ μου ἀνελεήμονες γεγόνασιν. 14 οὐ προσεποιήσαντό με οἱ ἐγγύτατοί μου, καὶ οἱ εἰδότες μου τὸ ὄνομα ἐπελάθοντό μου. 15 γείτονες οἰκίας θεράπαιναί τέ μου, ἀλλογενὴς ἤμην ἐναντίον αὐτῶν. 16 θεράποντά μου ἐκάλεσα, καὶ οὐχ ὑπήκουσε· στόμα δέ μου ἐδέετο. 17 καὶ ἱκέτευον τὴν γυναῖκά μου, προσεκαλούμην δὲ κολακεύων υἱοὺς παλλακίδων μου· 18 οἱ δὲ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνά με ἀπεποιήσαντο· ὅταν ἀναστῶ, κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ λαλοῦσιν. 19 ἐβδελύξαντό με οἱ ἰδόντες με· οὓς δὴ ἠγαπήκειν, ἐπανέστησάν μοι. 20 ἐν δέρματί μου ἐσάπησαν αἱ σάρκες μου, τὰ δὲ ὀστᾶ μου ἐν ὀδοῦσιν ἔχεται. 21 ἐλεήσατέ με, ἐλεήσατέ με, ὦ φίλοι, χεὶρ γὰρ Κυρίου ἡ ἁψαμένη μού ἐστι. 22 διατί με διώκετε ὥσπερ καὶ ὁ Κύριος; ἀπὸ δὲ σαρκῶν μου οὐκ ἐμπίπλασθε; 23 τίς γὰρ ἂν δοίη γραφῆναι τὰ ρήματά μου, τεθῆναι δὲ αὐτὰ ἐν βιβλίῳ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα; 24 ἐν γραφείῳ σιδηρῷ καὶ μολίβῳ ἢ ἐν πέτραις ἐγγλυφῆναι; 25 οἶδα γὰρ ὅτι ἀένναός ἐστιν ὁ ἐκλύειν με μέλλων ἐπὶ γῆς, 26 ἀναστήσει δὲ τὸ δέρμα μου τὸ ἀναντλοῦν ταῦτα· παρὰ γὰρ Κυρίου ταῦτά μοι συνετελέσθη, 27 ἃ ἐγὼ ἐμαυτῷ συνεπίσταμαι, ἃ ὁ ὀφθαλμός μου ἑώρακε καὶ οὐκ ἄλλος, πάντα δέ μοι συντετέλεσθαι ἐν κόλπῳ. 28 εἰ δὲ καὶ ἐρεῖτε· τί ἐροῦμεν ἔναντι αὐτοῦ; καὶ ρίζαν λόγου εὑρήσομεν ἐν αὐτῷ· 29 εὐλαβήθητε δὴ καὶ ὑμεῖς ἀπὸ ἐπικαλύμματος, θυμὸς γὰρ ἐπ᾿ ἀνόμους ἐπελεύσεται, καὶ τότε γνώσονται ποῦ ἐστιν αὐτῶν ἡ ὕλη.
