Job 141 Man, that is born of a woman, Is of few days, and full of trouble. 2 He cometh forth like a flower, and ▼ is cut down: He fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. ▼
▼ 1) Or withereth3 And dost thou open thine eyes upon such a one, And bringest me into judgment with thee? 4 ▼ Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one. ▼
▼ 1) Or Oh that a clean thing could come out of an unclean! not one can.5 Seeing his days are determined, The number of his months is with thee, And thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; 6 Look away from him, that he may ▼ rest, Till he shall ▼
▼ 2accomplish, as a hireling, his day. ▼
▼ 1) Heb cease 2) Or have pleasure in7 For there is hope of a tree, If it be cut down, that it will sprout again, And that the tender branch thereof will not cease. 8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, And the stock thereof die in the ground; 9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud, And put forth boughs like a plant. 10 But man dieth, and is laid low: Yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he? 11 As the waters ▼ fail from the sea, And the river wasteth and drieth up; ▼
▼ 1) Heb are gone12 So man lieth down and riseth not: Till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, Nor be roused out of their sleep. 13 Oh that thou wouldest hide me in Sheol, That thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, That thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! 14 If a man die, shall he live again ? All the days of my warfare ▼ would I wait, Till my ▼
▼ 2release should come. ▼
▼ 1) Or will…shall come 2) Or change15 Thou ▼ wouldest call, and I would answer thee: Thou wouldest have a desire to the work of thy hands. ▼
▼ 1) Or shalt call, and I will etc16 But now thou numberest my steps: Dost thou not watch over my sin? 17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, And thou fastenest up mine iniquity. 18 But the mountain falling ▼ cometh to nought; And the rock is removed out of its place; ▼
▼ 1) Heb fadeth away19 The waters wear the stones; The overflowings thereof wash away the dust of the earth: So thou destroyest the hope of man. 20 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth; Thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away. 21 His sons come to honor, and he knoweth it not; And they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them. 22 ▼ But his flesh upon him hath pain, And his soul within him mourneth. ▼
▼ 1) Or Only for himself his flesh hath pain, and for himself his soul mourneth
