Job 6:11

11What is my strength, that I should wait?
And what is my end, that I should be patient?

Job 7:7

7 Remember that my life is a a  breath;
my eye will never again see good.

Job 17:11-16

11My b  days are past; my plans are broken off,
the desires of my heart.
12They c  make night into day:
‘The light,’ they say, ‘is near to the darkness.’
The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain

13If I hope for e  Sheol as f  my house,
if I make my bed in darkness,
14if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’
and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
15where then is my hope?
Who will see my hope?
16Will it go down to the bars of g  Sheol?
Shall we h  descend together i  into the dust?”

Isaiah 38:1
