These Ten Times

Job says that his friends have reproached him "these ten times" in 19:3. Counting Job's own speeches, there are exactly ten speeches from Job 3-18. This seems to imply that the "reproach" is two fold: it is the refusal to hear Job's words and it is the audacity they have to speak up against him.
