6 Is not food insipid, eaten without salt, is there any taste in egg-white?
Col 4:6  Lev 2:13  Heb 6:4-5  Job 6:25  Job 6:30  Job 12:11  Job 16:2 

7 But the very things my appetite revolts at are now my diet in sickness.

8 Will no one hear my prayer, will not God himself grant my hope?

9 May it please God to crush me, to give his hand free play and do away with me!
1Kgs 19:4  Job 7:15-16  Jonah 4:3  Isa 48:10-13  Job 3:20-22  Job 14:13  Job 19:21 

10 This thought, at least, would give me comfort (a thrill of joy in unrelenting pain), that I never rebelled against the Holy One's decrees.
Isa 57:15  Job 23:12  Lev 19:2  1Sam 2:2  2Pet 2:4-5  Acts 20:20  Acts 20:27

12 Is mine the strength of stone, is my flesh made of bronze?

13 Can I support myself on nothing? Has not all help deserted me?
2Cor 1:12  Gal 6:4  Job 12:2-3  Job 13:2  Job 19:28  Job 26:2 

14 Refuse faithful love to your neighbour and you forsake the fear of Shaddai.
Prov 17:17  1Cor 12:26  2Cor 11:29  Gal 6:2  Gen 20:11  Heb 13:3  Job 4:3-5 

15 Like the torrent, my brothers have proved deceptive, as fleeting torrents they flow:
Jer 15:18  Ps 38:11  Ps 41:9  John 13:18  John 16:32  Jer 9:4-5  Jer 30:14 

16 the ice makes their waters turgid when, above them, the snow melts,

17 but, come the burning summer, they run dry, they vanish in the heat of the sun.
1Kgs 17:1  Job 24:19 

18 Caravans leave the trail to find them, go deep into wastelands, and are lost.

19 The caravans of Tema look to them, and on them Sheba's convoys build their hopes.
Gen 25:15  Isa 21:14  Jer 25:23  1Kgs 10:1  Ezek 27:22-23  Gen 10:7  Gen 25:3 

20 Their trust brings only embarrassment, they reach them only to be thwarted.
Jer 14:3-4  Jer 17:13  Rom 5:5  Rom 9:33 

21 And this is how you now treat me, terrified at the sight of me, you take fright.
Ps 38:11  2Tim 4:16  Isa 2:22  Jer 17:5-6  Jer 51:9  Job 2:11-13  Job 6:15 

22 Have I said to you, 'Give me something, make some present for me at your own cost,
1Sam 12:3  Acts 20:33  Job 42:11 

23 snatch me from the grasp of an oppressor, ransom me from the grip of a violent man'?
Jer 15:21  Job 5:20  Lev 25:48  Neh 5:8  Ps 49:7-8  Ps 49:15  Ps 107:2 

24 Put me right, and I shall say no more; show me where I have been at fault.
Jas 3:2  Job 10:2  Job 32:11  Job 33:1  Ps 19:12  Ps 39:1-2  Prov 9:9 

25 Fair comment can be borne without resentment, but what are your strictures aimed at?
Eccl 12:10-11  Job 4:4  Job 13:5  Job 16:3-5  Job 21:34  Job 24:25  Job 32:3 

26 Do you think mere words deserve censure, desperate speech that the wind blows away?
Job 8:2  Eph 4:14  Hos 12:1  Job 2:10  Job 3:3-26  Job 4:3-4  Job 6:4 

27 Soon you will be haggling over the price of an orphan, and selling your friend at bargain price!
2Pet 2:3  Jas 1:27  Job 22:9  Job 24:3  Job 24:9  Joel 3:3  Nah 3:10 

28 Come, I beg you, look at me: man to man, I shall not lie.
Job 11:3  Job 13:4  Job 27:4  Job 33:3  Job 36:4
