Summary

Job questions why he has to be tried- made to experience things that others don’t have to experience. He says he never asked for this. He didn’t plan to be who he was. He compares himself to stillborn babies, people who weren’t “woke”, and ones who value material wealth… Saying they get rest, things are easier for them and it was so for himself when he was still asleep.

In the end, he acknowledged that his current condition was the revelation of everything in his life with the potential to break him. He says its the culmination of all his fears, instabilities, and uncertainties. He pointed out that he never neglected, ignored, or was inattentive to these things, yet it was all unraveling at once.
