1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
3:1 ¶ I, am the man, that hath seen affliction, by the rod of his indignation;
3:2 Me, hath he driven out and brought into darkness, and not light;
3:3 Surely, against me, doth he again and again, turn his hand all the day.
3:4 He hath worn out my flesh and my skin, hath broken my bones;
3:5 He hath built up against me, and carried round me, fortifications and a trench;
3:6 In dark places, hath he made me sit, like the dead of age-past times.
3:7 He hath walled up around me, that I cannot get out, hath weighted my fetter;
3:8 Yea, when I make outcry and implore, he hath shut out my prayer;
3:9 He hath walled in my ways with hewn stone, my paths, hath he caused to wind back.
3:10 A bear lying in wait, he is to me, a lion, in secret places;
3:11 My ways, hath he turned aside, and hath torn me in pieces, hath made me desolate;
3:12 He hath trodden his bow, and set me up, as a mark for the arrow.
3:13 He hath caused to enter my reins, the sons of his quiver;
3:14 I have become a derision to all my people, their song all the day;
3:15 He hath sated me with bitter things, hath drenched me with wormwood.
3:16 And he hath crushed, with gravel-stones, my teeth, hath made me cower in ashes;
3:17 And thou hast thrust away from welfare, my soul, I have forgotten prosperity;
3:19 Remember my humiliation and my fleeings, the wormwood and poison;
3:20 Thou wilt, indeed remember, that, bowed down concerning myself, is my soul;
3:21 ¶ This, will I bring back to my heart, therefore, will I hope.
3:23 New things for the mornings! Abundant is thy faithfulness:
3:27 Good it is for a man, that he should bear the yoke in his youth.
3:28 Let him sit alone, and keep silence, because he took it upon himself:
3:29 Let him put, in the dust, his mouth, peradventure, there is hope!
3:30 Let him give, to him that smiteth him, his cheek, let him be sated with reproach.
3:31 Surely My Lord, will not cast off, unto times age-abiding;
3:32 Surely, though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion, according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses;
3:33 Surely he hath not afflicted from his heart, nor caused sorrow to the sons of men.
3:34 To crush, under his feet, any of the prisoners of the earth;
3:35 To turn aside the right of a man, before the face of the Most High;
3:36 To oppress a son of earth in his cause, My Lord, hath made no provision.
3:37 ¶ Who was it that spake, and it was done, [when], My Lord, had not commanded?
3:38 Out of the mouth of the Most High, Proceed there not misfortunes and blessing?
3:39 Why should a living son of earth complain, [Let] a man [complain] because of his sins?
3:41 Let us lift up our heart, to the opened palms, to the Mighty One in the heavens;
3:42 ¶ We, have trespassed and rebelled, Thou, hast not pardoned.
3:43 Thou hast covered thyself with anger, and pursued us, hast slainhast not spared;
3:44 Thou hast screened thyself with the clouds, that prayer, should not pass through;
3:45 Offscouring and refuse, dost thou make us, in the midst of the peoples.
3:46 With their mouth, opened wide over us, [stand] all our foes.
3:47 Terror and a pit, have befallen us, tumult and grievous injury;
3:48 With streams of water, mine eye runneth down, over the grievous injury of the daughter of my people.
3:49 Mine eye, poureth itself out and ceaseth not, without relief;
3:51 Mine eye dealeth severely with my soul, because of all the daughters of my city.
3:52 They, have laid snares, for me as a bird, who are mine enemies without cause:
3:53 They have cut off, in the dungeon, my life, and have cast a stone upon me;
3:54 Waters, flowed over, my head, I said, I am cut off!
3:56 My voice, thou hast heard,do not close thine ear to my respite, to mine outcry;
3:57 Thou drewest near, in the day I kept calling on thee, thou saidst, Do not fear!
3:58 Thou hast pleaded, O My Lord, the pleas of my soul, hast redeemed my life;
3:60 Thou hast seen all their vindictiveness, all their plots against me.
3:62 The lips of mine assailants, and their mutterings, are against me, all the day;
3:63 On their downsitting and their uprising, do thou look, I, am their song.
3:65 Thou wilt suffer them a veiling of heart, thy curse to them;
