Job’s Opening Speech

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:1 -

After this, Job began to speak and cursed the day he was born.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:2 -

He said:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:3 -

May the day I was born perish,

and the night that said,

“A boy is conceived.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:4 -

If only that day had turned to darkness!

May God above not care about it,

or light shine on it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:5 -

May darkness and gloom reclaim it,

and a cloud settle over it.

May what darkens the day terrify it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:6 -

If only darkness had taken that night away!

May it not appear[fn] among the days of the year

or be listed in the calendar.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:7 -

Yes, may that night be barren;

may no joyful shout be heard in it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:8 -

Let those who curse days

condemn it,

those who are ready to rouse Leviathan.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:9 -

May its morning stars grow dark.

May it wait for daylight but have none;

may it not see the breaking[fn] of dawn.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:10 -

For that night did not shut

the doors of my mother’s womb,

and hide sorrow from my eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:11 -

Why was I not stillborn;

why didn’t I die as I came from the womb?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:12 -

Why did the knees receive me,

and why were there breasts for me to nurse?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:13 -

Now I would certainly be lying down in peace;

I would be asleep.

Then I would be at rest

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:14 -

with the kings and counselors of the earth,

who rebuilt ruined cities for themselves,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:15 -

or with princes who had gold,

who filled their houses with silver.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:16 -

Or why was I not hidden like a miscarried child,

like infants who never see daylight?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:17 -

There the wicked cease to make trouble,

and there the weary find rest.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:18 -

The captives are completely at rest;

they do not hear a taskmaster’s voice.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:19 -

Both small and great are there,

and the slave is set free from his master.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:20 -

Why is light given to one burdened with grief,

and life to those whose existence is bitter,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:21 -

who wait for death, but it does not come,

and search for it more than for hidden treasure,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:22 -

who are filled with much joy

and are glad when they reach the grave?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:23 -

Why is life given to a man whose path is hidden,

whom God has hedged in?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:24 -

I sigh when food is put before me,[fn]

and my groans pour out like water.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:25 -

For the thing I feared has overtaken me,

and what I dreaded has happened to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:26 -

I cannot relax or be calm;

I have no rest, for turmoil has come.

CSB Footnotes
LXX, Syr, Tg, Vg; MT reads rejoice
Lit or enter the number of months
Lit the eyelids
Or My sighing serves as my food
