Job 6:1-13

And Job answered and said, Oh that my grief were thoroughly weighed, and all my calamity laid in the balances! For now it would be heavier than the sand of the seas; therefore my words are more.
For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, their poison drinketh up my spirit: the terrors of +God are arrayed against me. Doth the wild ass bray by the grass? loweth an ox over his fodder? Shall that which is insipid be eaten without salt? Is there any taste in the white of an egg? What my soul refuseth to touch, that is as my loathsome food. Oh that I might have my request, and that +God would grant my desire! And that it would please +God to crush me, that he would let loose his hand and cut me off! Then should I yet have comfort; and in the pain which spareth not I would rejoice that I have not denied the words of the Holy One. What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should have patience? Is my strength the strength of stones? is my flesh of brass? Is it not that there is no help in me, and soundness is driven away from me?

Job 10:1

Job 3:1-26

After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed his day. And Job answered and said, Let the day perish in which I was born, and the night that said, There is a man child more.
That day let it be darkness, let not +God care for it from above, neither let light shine upon it: Let darkness and the shadow of death claim it; let clouds dwell upon it; let darkeners of the day terrify it. That night let gloom seize upon it; let it not rejoice among the days of the year; let it not come into the number of the months. Behold, let that night be barren; let no joyful sound come therein; Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to rouse Leviathan; Let the stars of its twilight be dark; let it wait for light, and have none, neither let it see the eyelids of the dawn: Because it shut not up the doors of the womb that bore me, and hid not trouble from mine eyes. Wherefore did I not die from the womb, come forth from the belly and expire? Why did the knees meet me? and wherefore the breasts, that I should suck? For now should I have lain down and been quiet; I should have slept: then had I been at rest, With kings and counsellors of the earth, who build desolate places for themselves, Or with princes who had gold, who filled their houses with silver; Or as a hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants that have not seen the light. There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the wearied are at rest. The prisoners together are at ease; they hear not the voice of the taskmaster. The small and great are there, and the bondman freed from his master. Wherefore is light given to him that is in trouble, and life to those bitter of soul, Who long for death, and it cometh not, and dig for it more than for hidden treasures; Who rejoice even exultingly and are glad when they find the grave? -- To the man whose way is hidden, and whom +God hath hedged in? For my sighing cometh before my bread, and my groanings are poured out like the waters. For I feared a fear, and it hath come upon me, and that which I dreaded hath come to me. I was not in safety, neither had I quietness, neither was I at rest, and trouble came.

Job 12:1-6

And Job answered and said, Truly ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you! I also have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you; and who knoweth not such things as these?read more.
I am to be one that is a derision to his friend, I who call upon +God, and whom he will answer: a derision is the just upright man. He that is ready to stumble with the foot is a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease. The tents of desolators are in peace, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand +God bringeth.

Job 16:6-17

If I speak, my pain is not assuaged; and if I forbear, what am I eased? But now he hath made me weary; ... thou hast made desolate all my family; Thou hast shrivelled me up! it is become a witness; and my leanness riseth up against me, it beareth witness to my more.
His anger teareth and pursueth me; he gnasheth with his teeth against me; as mine adversary he sharpeneth his eyes at me. They gape upon me with their mouth; they smite my cheeks reproachfully; they range themselves together against me. God hath delivered me over to the iniquitous man, and hurled me into the hands of the wicked. I was at rest, but he hath shattered me; he hath taken me by the neck and shaken me to pieces, and set me up for his mark. His arrows encompass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground. He breaketh me with breach upon breach; he runneth upon me like a mighty man. I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and rolled my horn in the dust. My face is red with weeping, and on my eyelids is the shadow of death; Although there is no violence in my hands, and my prayer is pure.

Job 30:9-31

And now I am their song, yea, I am their byword. They abhor me, they stand aloof from me, yea, they spare not to spit in my face. For he hath loosed my cord and afflicted me; so they cast off the bridle before more.
At my right hand rise the young brood; they push away my feet, and raise up against me their pernicious ways; They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, without any to help them; They come in as through a wide breach: amid the confusion they roll themselves onward. Terrors are turned against me; they pursue mine honour as the wind; and my welfare is passed away like a cloud. And now my soul is poured out in me; days of affliction have taken hold upon me. The night pierceth through my bones and detacheth them from me, and my gnawing pains take no rest: By their great force they have become my raiment; they bind me about as the collar of my coat. He hath cast me into the mire, and I have become like dust and ashes. I cry unto thee, and thou answerest me not; I stand up, and thou lookest at me. Thou art changed to a cruel one to me; with the strength of thy hand thou pursuest me. Thou liftest me up to the wind; thou causest me to be borne away, and dissolvest my substance. For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, and into the house of assemblage for all living. Indeed, no prayer availeth when he stretcheth out his hand: though they cry when he destroyeth. Did not I weep for him whose days were hard? was not my soul grieved for the needy? For I expected good, and there came evil; and I waited for light, but there came darkness. My bowels well up, and rest not; days of affliction have confronted me. I go about blackened, but not by the sun; I stand up, I cry in the congregation. I am become a brother to jackals, and a companion of ostriches. My skin is become black and falleth off me, and my bones are parched with heat. My harp also is turned to mourning, and my pipe into the voice of weepers.

Numbers 11:11-15

And Moses said to Jehovah, Why hast thou done evil to thy servant, and why have I not found favour in thine eyes, that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me? Have I conceived all this people, have I brought them forth, that thou sayest to me, Carry them in thy bosom, as the nursing-father beareth the suckling, unto the land which thou didst swear unto their fathers? Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh that we may eat!read more.

Exodus 5:22-23

Jeremiah 15:10

Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole land! I have not lent on usury, nor have they lent to me on usury; yet every one of them doth curse me.

Jeremiah 20:7-10

Jehovah, thou hast enticed me, and I was enticed; thou hast laid hold of me, and hast prevailed; I am become a derision the whole day: every one mocketh me. For as oft as I speak, I cry out; I proclaim violence and spoil; for the word of Jehovah is become unto me a reproach and a derision all the day. And I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name: but it was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones; and I became wearied with holding in, and I could more.
For I have heard the defaming of many, terror on every side: Report, and we will report it. All my familiars are watching for my stumbling: Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him; and we shall take our revenge on him.

And now, Jehovah, take, I beseech thee, my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to more.
And Jehovah said, Doest thou well to be angry? And Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shade, till he might see what would become of the city.

Psalm 137:1-9

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down; yea, we wept when we remembered Zion. We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that made us wail required mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of more.
How should we sing a song of Jehovah's upon a foreign soil? If I forget thee, Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill; If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to my palate: if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. Remember, O Jehovah, against the sons of Edom, the day of Jerusalem; who said, Lay it bare, Lay it bare, down to its foundation! Daughter of Babylon, who art to be laid waste, happy he that rendereth unto thee that which thou hast meted out to us. Happy he that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the rock.

Lamentations 3:1-18

I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. Me hath he led, and brought into darkness, and not into light. Surely against me hath he turned again and again his hand all the more.
My flesh and my skin hath he wasted away, he hath broken my bones. He hath built against me, and encompassed me with gall and toil. He hath made me to dwell in dark places as those that have been long dead. He hath hedged me about that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy. Even when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer. He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked. He is unto me as a bear lying in wait, a lion in secret places. He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces; he hath made me desolate. He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins. I am become a derision to all my people; their song all the day. He hath sated me with bitterness, he hath made me drunk with wormwood. He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes. And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I have forgotten prosperity. And I said, My strength is perished, and my hope in Jehovah.

Revelation 18:9-19

And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication, and lived luxuriously with her, shall weep and wail over her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing afar off, through fear of her torment, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! for in one hour thy judgment is come. And the merchants of the earth weep and grieve over her, because no one buys their lading any more;read more.
lading of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and pearl, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet dye, and all thyine wood, and every article in ivory, and every article in most precious wood, and in brass, and in iron, and in marble, and cinnamon, and amomum, and incense, and unguent, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and cattle, and sheep, and of horses, and of chariots, and of bodies, and souls of men. And the ripe fruits which were the lust of thy soul have departed from thee, and all fair and splendid things have perished from thee, and they shall not find them any more at all. The merchants of these things, who had been enriched through her, shall stand afar off through fear of her torment, weeping and grieving, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, which was clothed with fine linen and purple and scarlet, and had ornaments of gold and precious stones and pearls! for in one hour so great riches has been made desolate. And every steersman, and every one who sailed to any place, and sailors, and all who exercise their calling on the sea, stood afar off, and cried, seeing the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like to the great city? and cast dust upon their heads, and cried, weeping and grieving, saying, Woe, woe, the great city, in which all that had ships in the sea were enriched through her costliness! for in one hour she has been made desolate.

With my voice will I call to Jehovah, and he will answer me from the hill of his holiness. Selah.

Psalm 13:1-6

{To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} How long, Jehovah, wilt thou forget me for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

Consider, answer me, O Jehovah my God! lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;read more.

Psalm 37:1-7

and delight thyself in Jehovah, and he will give thee the desires of thy heart. Commit thy way unto Jehovah, and rely upon him: he will bring it to pass; and he will bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Psalm 73:23-28

Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden my right hand; Thou wilt guide me by thy counsel, and after the glory, thou wilt receive me. Whom have I in the heavens? and there is none upon earth I desire beside more.
My flesh and my heart faileth: God is the rock of my heart and my portion for ever. For behold, they that are far from thee shall perish; thou destroyest every one that goeth a whoring from thee. But as for me, it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord Jehovah, that I may declare all thy works.

Lamentations 3:19-26

Remember thou mine affliction and my wandering, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them constantly in remembrance, and is humbled in me. This I recall to heart, therefore have I more.
It is of Jehovah's loving-kindness we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not; they are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Jehovah is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. Jehovah is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that one should both wait, and that in silence, for the salvation of Jehovah.

in pureness, in knowledge, in longsuffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in love unfeigned, in the word of truth, in the power of God; through the arms of righteousness on the right hand and left, through glory and dishonour, through evil report and good report: as deceivers, and true; as unknown, and well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as disciplined, and not put to death; as grieved, but always rejoicing; as poor, but enriching many; as having nothing, and possessing all things.

James 1:2-3
