How painful are honest words!
But your reproof, what does it reprove? Bible other translations

“honest words.” The Hebrew is more literally, “words of uprightness,” but here it refers to upright or honest words, which can be painful. But the “reproof” of Job’s friends was not “upright;” Job’s friends were in error about him. Job was innocent.

“But your reproof, what does it reprove?” Since the “reproof” of Job’s friends was based on error it reproved nothing. It was misplaced.
