Troublesome Comforters

“Then Job answered and said, ‘I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all.  Shall vain words have an end? Or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest?  I also could speak as ye do: if your soul were in my soul’s stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you.  I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief.  Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased?'”  Job 16:1-6  (KJB)
