As waters fail from a lake
And a river wastes away and dries up
So mortals lie down and do not rise again;
Until the heavens are no more , they will not awake
Or be roused out of their sleep. (14:11-12)
At times God’s attacks on Job are portrayed in extremely violent and graphic terms.
I was at ease, and he broke me in two;
He seized me by the neck and dashed me to pieces;
He set me up as his target;
His archers surround me.
He slashes open my kidneys, and shows no mercy;
He pours out my gall on the ground.
He bursts upon me again and again;
He rushes at me like a warrior. (16:12-14)
