"Even today my complaint is rebellious. His hand is heavy in spite of my groaning.
Young's Literal Translation
Also -- to-day is my complaint bitter, My hand hath been heavy because of my sighing.
Job 23:2 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Even to-day is my complaint bitter - Job goes on to maintain his own innocence, and shows that he has derived neither conviction nor consolation from the discourses of his friends. He grants that his complaint is bitter; but states that, loud as it may be, the affliction which he endures is heavier than his complaints are loud. Mr. Good translates: "And still is my complaint rebellion?" Do ye construe my lamentations over my unparalleled sufferings as rebellion against God? This, in fact, they had done from the beginning: and the original will justify the version of Mr. Good; for מרי meri, which we translate bitter, may be derived from מרה marah, "he rebelled."

"If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on the scales!
It would surely outweigh the sand of the seas-- no wonder my words have been impetuous.
"Therefore I will not keep silent; I will speak out in the anguish of my spirit, I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
Then Job replied:
If only I knew where to find him; if only I could go to his dwelling!
To his sin he adds rebellion; scornfully he claps his hands among us and multiplies his words against God."
For day and night your hand was heavy on me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.
