Job 17


Job Loathes His Life

I am destroyed, [2by a wind 1being borne]; and I beseech a burial, and attain it not. [2I implore 1In wearying], for what shall I do? [3stole 1and 4my 5possessions 2strangers]. Who is this to my hand tied together? For [2their heart 1you hid] from intellect; on account of this, in no way shall you exalt them. [3in portion 1He shall announce 2evils]; and eyes upon sons were melted away. But you appointed me for a common topic among the nations, [3as laughter 1and 4for them 2I resulted]. [3are calloused 1For 4from 5wrath 2my eyes]; I have been assaulted greatly by all. Wonder held true men over these things; [3the just 1and 5against 6the lawbreaker 2may 4rise up]. [2may 4hold 1But 3the trustworthy] his own way; [3the clean 1and 4hands 2may] take courage. 10 But however, let all be established and come indeed! [3not 1for 2I do 4find] among you a true one. 11  My days go by in groaning, [5were torn 1and 2the 3articulations 4of my heart]. 12 [2night 3for 4day 1I put]; the light is near from the face of darkness. 13 For if I remain, Hades is my house; and in dimness I will make my strewn bed. 14 [2death 1I called upon 4father 3to be my]; [5mother 1and 4my 3to be 6and 7sister 2rottenness]. 15 Where then is my hope? or [2my good 1shall I see]? 16 or [2with 3me 4into 5Hades 1will they go down]? or with one accord [2unto 3the embankment 1shall we go down]?
