Job 30:16-19

16-19"And now my life drains out,

as suffering seizes and grips me hard.

Night gnaws at my bones;

the pain never lets up.

I am tied hand and foot, my neck in a noose.

I twist and turn.

Thrown facedown in the muck,

I'm a muddy mess, inside and out.

What Did I Do to Deserve This?

20-23"I shout for help, God, and get nothing, no answer!

I stand to face you in protest, and you give me a blank stare!

You've turned into my tormenter—

you slap me around, knock me about.

You raised me up so I was riding high

and then dropped me, and I crashed.

I know you're determined to kill me,

to put me six feet under.
