Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:1 -
Is there not a warfare to man upon earth?
And are not his days like the days of a hireling?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:2 -
As a servant that earnestly desireth the shadow,
And as a hireling that looketh for his wages:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:3 -
So am I made to possess months of misery,
And wearisome nights are appointed to me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:4 -
When I lie down, I say,
When shall I arise, and the night be gone?
And I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:5 -
My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust;
My skin closeth up, and breaketh out afresh.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:6 -
My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle,
And are spent without hope.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:7 -
Oh remember that my life is a breath:
Mine eye shall no more see good.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:8 -
The eye of him that seeth me shall behold me no more;
Thine eyes shall be upon me, but I shall not be.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:9 -
As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away,
So he that goeth down to Sheol shall come up no more.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:10 -
He shall return no more to his house,
Neither shall his place know him any more.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:11 -
Therefore I will not refrain my mouth;
I will speak in the anguish of my spirit;
I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:12 -
Am I a sea, or a sea-monster,
That thou settest a watch over me?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:13 -
When I say, My bed shall comfort me,
My couch shall ease my complaint;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:14 -
Then thou scarest me with dreams,
And terrifiest me through visions:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:15 -
So that my soul chooseth strangling,
And death rather than these my bones.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:16 -
I loathe my life; I would not live alway:
Let me alone; for my days are vanity.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:17 -
What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him,
And that thou shouldest set thy mind upon him,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:18 -
And that thou shouldest visit him every morning,
And try him every moment?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:19 -
How long wilt thou not look away from me,
Nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:20 -
If I have sinned, what do I unto thee, O thou watcher of men?
Why hast thou set me as a mark for thee,
So that I am a burden to myself?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:21 -
And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquity?
For now shall I lie down in the dust;
And thou wilt seek me diligently, but I shall not be.
