“The things that my soule refused to touch, are as my sorrowfull meat.”
King James Version (KJV)
4. For the arrowes of the Almightie are within me, the poyson whereof drinketh vp my spirit: the terrors of God doe set themselues in aray against mee. 5. Doeth the wilde asse bray when he hath grasse? or loweth the oxe ouer his fodder? 6. Can that which is vnsauery, bee eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egge? 7. The things that my soule refused to touch, are as my sorrowfull meat. 8. O that I might haue my request! and that God would graunt mee the thing that I long for! 9. Euen that it would please God to destroy mee, that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off. 10. Then should I yet haue comfort, yea I would harden my selfe in sorrow; let him not spare, for I haue not concealed the words of the holy One.
