Random English Monday

Um. So. What do you suppose Job's Tears taste like?

Do you think it's tears from the biblical Job? 

Or more like "I hate my job so much I'm going to cry" tears? 

I don't know if that translated well. Korean friends, help me out?

Happy Monday y'all! 

After this Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. 
And Job said: 
"Let the day perish on which I was born, and the night that said, "A man is conceived." 
Let that day be darkness! 
May God above not seek it, nor light shine upon it. 
Let gloom and deep darkness claim it. 
Let clouds dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it. 
That night—let thick darkness seize it! 
Let it not rejoice among the days of the year; let it not come into the number of the months. 
Behold, let that night be barren; let no joyful cry enter it. 
Let those curse it who curse the day, who are ready to rouse up Leviathan. 
Let the stars of its dawn be dark; let it hope for light, but have none, nor see the eyelids of the morning, because it did not shut the doors of my mother's womb, nor hide trouble from my eyes. 
-Job 3:1-10 ESV

I have been informed that Job's Tears is the name of a type of barley (read about it on wikipedia here). Raise you hand if you didn't know that? MEEEEE!!!!! Ok, so, this isn't random English or even a bad translation... but I still think it's funny, so... Whatever.***
