Job 17:3-5

3-5"O God, pledge your support for me.

Give it to me in writing, with your signature.

You're the only one who can do it!

These people are so useless!

You know firsthand how stupid they can be.

You wouldn't let them have the last word, would you?

Those who betray their own friends

leave a legacy of abuse to their children.

6-8"God, you've made me the talk of the town—

people spit in my face;

I can hardly see from crying so much;

I'm nothing but skin and bones.

Decent people can't believe what they're seeing;

the good-hearted wake up and insist I've given up on God.
