Job 17

[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]

17:1 My spirit is consumed, my days are extinct, the grave is ready for me.

17:2 Surely there are mockers with me, and mine eye abideth in their provocation.

17:3 Give now a pledge, be surety for me with Thyself; who else is there that will strike hands with me?

17:4 For Thou hast hid their heart from understanding; therefore shalt Thou not exalt them.

17:5 He that denounceth his friends for the sake of flattery, even the eyes of his children shall fail.

17:6 He hath made me also a byword of the people; and I am become one in whose face they spit.

17:7 Mine eye also is dimmed by reason of vexation, and all my members are as a shadow.

17:8 Upright men are astonished at this, and the innocent stirreth up himself against the godless.

17:9 Yet the righteous holdeth on his way, and he that hath clean hands waxeth stronger and stronger.

17:10 But as for you all, do ye return, and come now; and I shall not find a wise man among you.

17:11 My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.

17:12 They change the night into day; the light is short because of darkness.

17:13 If I look for the nether-world as my house; if I have spread my couch in the darkness;

17:14 If I have said to corruption: 'Thou art my father', to the worm: 'Thou art my mother, and my sister';

17:15 Where then is my hope? And as for my hope, who shall see it?

17:16 They shall go down to the bars of the nether-world, when we are at rest together in the dust.
