Job continues to speak
I have heard everything that you have said. And I have understood all of it.
You are no better than I am.
And I want him to explain the things that he has done to me.
You are like doctors who cannot make sick people better.

Show me one wrong thing that I have done.

I am only as strong as dry grass.
So I do not understand why you want to frighten me.

You watch me to see where I am going.
You even put marks on my feet so that you can follow me.
I am like an old coat that the insects have eaten.’
