Job’s Lament1 Afterward Job opened his mouth and cursed ▼
▼ Lit his daythe day of his birth. 2 And Job ▼
▼ Lit answered and saidsaid, 3 c “Let the day perish on which I was to be born,
And the night which said, ‘A ▼
▼ Lit man-childboy is conceived.’
4 “May that day be darkness;
Let not God above care for it,
Nor light shine on it.
5 “Let e darkness and black gloom claim it;
Let a cloud settle on it;
Let the blackness of the day terrify it.
6 “As for that night, let darkness seize it;
Let it not rejoice among the days of the year;
Let it not come into the number of the months.
7 “Behold, let that night be barren;
Let no joyful shout enter it.
8 “Let those curse it who curse the day,
Who are ▼
▼ Or skillfulprepared to g rouse Leviathan.
9 “Let the stars of its twilight be darkened;
Let it wait for light but have none,
And let it not see the ▼
▼ Lit eyelidsbreaking dawn;
10 Because it did not shut the opening of my mother’s womb,
Or hide trouble from my eyes.
11 i “Why did I not die ▼
▼ Lit from the wombat birth,
Come forth from the womb and expire?
12 “Why did the knees receive me,
And why the breasts, that I should suck?
13 “For now I k would have lain down and been quiet;
I would have slept then, I would have been at rest,
14 With l kings and with m counselors of the earth,
Who rebuilt n ruins for themselves;
15 Or with o princes p who had gold,
Who were filling their houses with silver.
16 “Or like a miscarriage which is ▼
▼ Lit hiddendiscarded, I would not be,
As infants that never saw light.
17 “There the wicked cease from raging,
And there the ▼
▼ Lit weary of strengthweary are at s rest.
18 “The prisoners are at ease together;
They do not hear the voice of the taskmaster.
19 “The small and the great are there,
And the slave is free from his master.
20 “Why is t light given to him who suffers,
And life to the bitter of soul,
21 Who ▼
▼ Lit wait, v long for death, but there is none,
And dig for it more than for w hidden treasures,
22 Who rejoice greatly,
And exult when they find the grave?
23 “Why is light given to a man x whose way is hidden,
And whom y God has hedged in?
24 “For z my groaning comes at the sight of my food,
And aa my cries pour out like water.
25 “For ▼
▼ Lit the fear I fear and, ac what I fear comes upon me,
And what I dread befalls me.
26 “I ad am not at ease, nor am I quiet,
And I am not at rest, but turmoil comes.”
