Job 6:3-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

They would now outweigh the sands of the sea!
    Because of this I speak without restraint.
For the arrows of the Almighty are in me,
    and my spirit drinks in their poison;
    the terrors of God are arrayed against me.
Does the wild donkey bray when it has grass?[a]
    Does the ox low over its fodder?

Footnotes:

  1. 6:5–6 Job would not complain if his life were as pleasant to him as fodder to a hungry animal; but his life is as disagreeable as insipid food. White of an egg: thus the obscure Hebrew has been understood in Jewish tradition; some render it “mallow juice.”
