Job 7:1-21
  • 1"Has not man a hard service on earth, and are not his days like the days of a hired hand?
  • 2Like a slave who longs for the shadow, and like a hired hand who looks for his wages,
  • 3so I am allotted months of emptiness, and nights of misery are apportioned to me.
  • 4When I lie down I say, 'When shall I arise?' But the night is long, and I am full of tossing till the dawn.
  • 5My flesh is clothed with worms and dirt; my skin hardens, then breaks out afresh.
  • 6My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle and come to their end without hope.
  • 7"Remember that my life is a breath; my eye will never again see good.
  • 8The eye of him who sees me will behold me no more; while your eyes are on me, I shall be gone.
  • 9As the cloud fades and vanishes, so he who goes down to Sheol does not come up;
  • 10he returns no more to his house, nor does his place know him anymore.
  • 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.
  • 12Am I the sea, or a sea monster, that you set a guard over me?
  • 13When I say, 'My bed will comfort me, my couch will ease my complaint,'
  • 14then you scare me with dreams and terrify me with visions,
  • 15so that I would choose strangling and death rather than my bones.
  • 16I loathe my life; I would not live forever. Leave me alone, for my days are a breath.
  • 17What is man, that you make so much of him, and that you set your heart on him,
  • 18visit him every morning and test him every moment?
  • 19How long will you not look away from me, nor leave me alone till I swallow my spit?
  • 20If I sin, what do I do to you, you watcher of mankind? Why have you made me your mark? Why have I become a burden to you?
  • 21Why do you not pardon my transgression and take away my iniquity? For now I shall lie in the earth; you will seek me, but I shall not be."
