Job 19:1-9

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 19

1 Then Job responded,
2 'How long will you torment me And crush me with words? 3 These ten times you have insulted me; You are not ashamed to wrong me. 4 Even if I have truly done wrong, My error stays with me. 5 If indeed you exalt yourselves against me And prove my disgrace to me, 6 Know then that God has wronged me And has surrounded me with His net. 7 'Behold, I cry, ‘Violence!’ but I get no answer; I shout for help, but there is no justice. 8 He has blocked my way so that I cannot pass, And He has put darkness on my paths. 9 He has stripped my honor from me And removed the crown from my head.
King James Version

Chapter 19

1 Then Job answered and said, 2 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words? 3 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me. 4 And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself. 5 If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach: 6 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net. 7 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths. 9 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 19

1 Then Job answered:
2 How long will you torment me and crush me with words? 3 You have humiliated me ten times now, and you mistreat me without shame. 4 Even if it is true that I have sinned, my mistake concerns only me. 5 If you really want to appear superior to me and would use my disgrace as evidence against me, 6 then understand that it is God who has wronged me and caught me in his net. 7 I cry out, "Violence! " but get no response; I call for help, but there is no justice. 8 He has blocked my way so that I cannot pass through; he has veiled my paths with darkness. 9 He has stripped me of my honor and removed the crown from my head.
New Living Translation

Chapter 19

1 Then Job spoke again:
2 'How long will you torture me? How long will you try to crush me with your words? 3 You have already insulted me ten times. You should be ashamed of treating me so badly. 4 Even if I have sinned, that is my concern, not yours. 5 You think you're better than I am, using my humiliation as evidence of my sin. 6 But it is God who has wronged me, capturing me in his net.
7 'I cry out, 'Help!' but no one answers me. I protest, but there is no justice. 8 God has blocked my way so I cannot move. He has plunged my path into darkness. 9 He has stripped me of my honor and removed the crown from my head.
English Standard Version

Chapter 19

1 Then Job answered and said:
2 “How long will you torment me and break me in pieces with words? 3 These ten times you have cast reproach upon me; are you not ashamed to wrong me? 4 And even if it be true that I have erred, my error remains with myself. 5 If indeed you magnify yourselves against me and make my disgrace an argument against me, 6 know then that God has put me in the wrong and closed his net about me. 7 Behold, I cry out, ‘Violence!’ but I am not answered; I call for help, but there is no justice. 8 He has walled up my way, so that I cannot pass, and he has set darkness upon my paths. 9 He has stripped from me my glory and taken the crown from my head.
New International Version

Chapter 19

1 Then Job replied:
2 How long will you torment me and crush me with words? 3 Ten times now you have reproached me; shamelessly you attack me. 4 If it is true that I have gone astray, my error remains my concern alone. 5 If indeed you would exalt yourselves above me and use my humiliation against me,
6 then know that God has wronged me and drawn his net around me. 7 Though I cry, 'Violence!' I get no response; though I call for help, there is no justice. 8 He has blocked my way so I cannot pass; he has shrouded my paths in darkness. 9 He has stripped me of my honor and removed the crown from my head.
La Biblia de las Américas

Chapter 19

1 Entonces respondió Job y dijo:
2 ¿Hasta cuándo me angustiaréis y me aplastaréis con palabras? 3 Estas diez veces me habéis insultado, ¿no os da vergüenza perjudicarme? 4 Aunque en verdad yo haya errado, mi error queda conmigo. 5 Si en verdad os jactáis contra mí, y comprobáis mi oprobio, 6 sabed ahora que Dios me ha agraviado y me ha envuelto en su red.
7 He aquí, yo grito: “¡Violencia!”, pero no obtengo respuesta; clamo pidiendo ayuda, pero no hay justicia. 8 El ha amurallado mi camino y no puedo pasar, y ha puesto tinieblas en mis sendas. 9 Me ha despojado de mi honor y quitado la corona de mi cabeza.

Chapter 19

1 Entonces Job respondió:
2 “¿Hasta cuándo me angustiarán Y me aplastarán con palabras? 3 Estas diez veces me han insultado, ¿No les da vergüenza perjudicarme? 4 Aunque en verdad yo haya errado, Mi error queda conmigo. 5 Si en verdad se jactan contra mí, Y comprueban mi oprobio, 6 Sepan ahora que Dios me ha agraviado Y me ha envuelto en Su red.
7 Yo grito: ‘¡Violencia!,’ pero no obtengo respuesta; Clamo pidiendo ayuda, pero no hay justicia. 8 El ha amurallado mi camino y no puedo pasar, Y ha puesto tinieblas en mis sendas. 9 Me ha despojado de mi honor Y quitado la corona de mi cabeza.
Nueva Versión Internacional

Chapter 19

1 A esto, Job respondió: 2 «¿Hasta cuándo van a estar atormentándome y aplastándome con sus palabras? 3 Una y otra vez me hacen reproches; descaradamente me atacan. 4 Aun si fuera verdad que me he desviado, mis errores son asunto mío. 5 Si quieren darse importancia a costa mía, y valerse de mi humillación para atacarme, 6 sepan que es Dios quien me ha hecho daño, quien me ha atrapado en su red.
7 »Aunque grito: “¡Violencia!”, no hallo respuesta; aunque pido ayuda, no se me hace justicia. 8 Dios me ha cerrado el camino, y no puedo pasar; ha cubierto de oscuridad mis senderos. 9 Me ha despojado de toda honra; de la cabeza me ha quitado la corona.
Reina-Valera 1960

Chapter 19

1 Respondió entonces Job, y dijo: 2 ¿Hasta cuándo angustiaréis mi alma, Y me moleréis con palabras? 3 Ya me habéis vituperado diez veces; ¿No os avergonzáis de injuriarme? 4 Aun siendo verdad que yo haya errado, Sobre mí recaería mi error. 5 Pero si vosotros os engrandecéis contra mí, Y contra mí alegáis mi oprobio, 6 Sabed ahora que Dios me ha derribado, Y me ha envuelto en su red. 7 He aquí, yo clamaré agravio, y no seré oído; Daré voces, y no habrá juicio. 8 Cercó de vallado mi camino, y no pasaré; Y sobre mis veredas puso tinieblas. 9 Me ha despojado de mi gloria, Y quitado la corona de mi cabeza.
Biblia del Jubileo

Chapter 19

1 Y respondió Job, y dijo: 2 ¿Hasta cuándo angustiaréis mi alma, y me moleréis con palabras? 3 Ya me habéis vituperado diez veces; ¿no os avergonzáis de descomediros delante de mí? 4 Sea así que realmente haya yo errado, conmigo se quedará mi yerro. 5 Mas si vosotros os engrandeciéreis contra mí, y redarguyeres mi oprobio contra mí, 6 sabed ahora que Dios me ha derribado, y me ha envuelto en su red. 7 He aquí yo clamaré agravio, y no seré oído; daré voces, y no habrá juicio. 8 Cercó de vallado mi camino, y no pasaré; y sobre mis veredas puso tinieblas. 9 Me quitó mi honra, y quitó la corona de mi cabeza.
