38 If my land [a]cry against me, or the furrows thereof complain together,

39 If I have eaten the fruits thereof without silver: or if I have grieved [b]the souls of the masters thereof,

40 Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and cockle in the stead of barley.

THE [c]WORDS OF JOB ARE ENDED.

38 “if my land cries out against me
    and all its furrows are wet with tears,
39 if I have devoured its yield without payment
    or broken the spirit of its tenants,
40 then let briers come up instead of wheat
    and stinkweed instead of barley.”
