Job 31 After this Job opened his mouth and cursed his day. 2 And Job spoke and said, 3 Let the day perish in which I was born and the night [in which] it was said, There is a man child conceived. 4 Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above; neither let the light shine upon it. 5 Let darkness and the shadow of death redeem it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it. 6 As [for] that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year; let it not come into the number of the months. 7 O, let that night be solitary; let no song come therein! 8 Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning. 9 Let the stars of its dawn be darkened; they waited for light, but [have] none; neither let them see the dawning of the day; 10 because it did not shut up the doors of my [mother's] womb nor hide the misery from my eyes. 11 Why did I not die from the womb? [Why] did I [not] give up the spirit when I came out of the belly? 12 Why did the knees receive me? Of what use the breasts that I should suck? 13 For now I should have lain still and been quiet; I should have slept; then I would have been at rest, 14 with the kings and the counsellors of the earth, who built desolate places for themselves; 15 or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver. 16 Or, [why] was I not hidden as an untimely birth, as infants [who] never saw light? 17 There the wicked cease [from] troubling; and there the weary are at rest. 18 [There] the prisoners rest together, they do not hear the voice of the oppressor. 19 The small and the great are there, and the servant [is] free from his master. 20 Why is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter [in] soul; 21 who long for death, but it [comes] not; and search for it more than for hid treasures; 22 who rejoice exceedingly [and] are glad when they can find the grave; 23 to the man who does not know which way he goes and whom God has hedged in? 24 For my sighing comes before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters. 25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. 26 I never had prosperity, nor did I secure myself, neither was I at rest; yet trouble came.:
