Job 7

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

7:1 Hath not man a life of labour upon earth? and are not his days like the days of a hireling?

7:2 As a bondman earnestly desireth the shadow, and a hireling expecteth his wages,

7:3 So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.

7:4 If I lie down, I say, When shall I rise up, and the darkness be gone? and I am full of tossings until the dawn.

7:5 My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and suppurates.

7:6 My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.

7:7 Remember thou that my life is wind; mine eye shall no more see good.

7:8 The eye of him that hath seen me shall behold me no [more]: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not.

7:9 The cloud consumeth and vanisheth away; so he that goeth down to Sheol shall not come up.

7:10 He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him again.

7:11 Therefore I will not restrain my mouth: I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.

7:12 Am I a sea, or a sea-monster, that thou settest a watch over me?

7:13 When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint;

7:14 Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions;

7:15 So that my soul chooseth strangling, death, rather than my bones.

7:16 I loathe it; I shall not live always: let me alone, for my days are a breath.

7:17 What is man, that thou makest much of him? and that thou settest thy heart upon him?

7:18 And that thou visitest him every morning, triest him every moment?

7:19 How long wilt thou not look away from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?

7:20 Have I sinned, what do I unto thee, thou Observer of men? Why hast thou set me as an object of assault for thee, so that I am become a burden to myself?

7:21 And why dost not thou forgive my transgression and take away mine iniquity? for now shall I lie down in the dust, and thou shalt seek me early, and I shall not be.
