- Hath not man a life of labour upon earth? and are not his days like the days of a hireling?
- As a bondman earnestly desireth the shadow, and a hireling expecteth his wages,
- So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.
- If I lie down, I say, When shall I rise up, and the darkness be gone? and I am full of tossings until the dawn.
- My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and suppurates.
- My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.
- Remember thou that my life is wind; mine eye shall no more see good.
- The eye of him that hath seen me shall behold me no [more]: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not.
- The cloud consumeth and vanisheth away; so he that goeth down to Sheol shall not come up.
- He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him again.
- Therefore I will not restrain my mouth: I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
- Am I a sea, or a sea-monster, that thou settest a watch over me?
- When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint;
- Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions;
- So that my soul chooseth strangling, death, rather than my bones.
- I loathe it; I shall not live always: let me alone, for my days are a breath.
- What is man, that thou makest much of him? and that thou settest thy heart upon him?
- And that thou visitest him every morning, triest him every moment?
- How long wilt thou not look away from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?
- Have I sinned, what do I unto thee, thou Observer of men? Why hast thou set me as an object of assault for thee, so that I am become a burden to myself?
- And why dost not thou forgive my transgression and take away mine iniquity? for now shall I lie down in the dust, and thou shalt seek me early, and I shall not be.
- And Bildad the Shuhite answered and said,
- How long wilt thou speak these things? and the words of thy mouth be a strong wind?
- Doth łGod pervert judgment, and the Almighty pervert justice?
- If thy children have sinned against him, he hath also given them over into the hand of their transgression.
- If thou seek earnestly unto łGod, and make thy supplication to the Almighty,
- If thou be pure and upright, surely now he will awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous;
- And though thy beginning was small, yet thine end shall be very great.
- For inquire, I pray thee, of the former generation, and attend to the researches of their fathers;
- For we are [but] of yesterday, and know nothing, for our days upon earth are a shadow.
- Shall not they teach thee, [and] tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?
- Doth the papyrus shoot up without mire? doth the reed-grass grow without water?
- Whilst it is yet in its greenness [and] not cut down, it withereth before any [other] grass.
- So are the paths of all that forget łGod; and the profane man's hope shall perish,
- Whose confidence shall be cut off, and his reliance is a spider's web.
- He shall lean upon his house, and it shall not stand; he shall lay hold on it, but it shall not endure.
- He is full of sap before the sun, and his sprout shooteth forth over his garden;
- His roots are entwined about the stoneheap; he seeth the place of stones.
- If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him: I have not seen thee!
- Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the dust shall others grow.
- Behold, łGod will not cast off a perfect man, neither will he take evil-doers by the hand.
- Whilst he would fill thy mouth with laughing and thy lips with shouting,
- They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame, and the tent of the wicked be no more.
