Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:1 -

Isn’t each person consigned to forced labor on earth?

Are not his days like those of a hired worker?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:2 -

Like a slave he longs for shade;

like a hired worker he waits for his pay.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:3 -

So I have been made to inherit months of futility,

and troubled nights have been assigned to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:4 -

When I lie down I think,

“When will I get up? ”

But the evening drags on endlessly,

and I toss and turn until dawn.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:5 -

My flesh is clothed with maggots and encrusted with dirt.[fn]

My skin forms scabs[fn] and then oozes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:6 -

My days pass more swiftly than a weaver’s shuttle;

they come to an end without hope.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:7 -

Remember that my life is but a breath.

My eye will never again see anything good.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:8 -

The eye of anyone who looks on me

will no longer see me.

Your eyes will look for me, but I will be gone.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:9 -

As a cloud fades away and vanishes,

so the one who goes down to Sheol will never rise again.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:10 -

He will never return to his house;

his hometown will no longer remember[fn] him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:11 -

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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:12 -

Am I the sea[fn] or a sea monster,

that you keep me under guard?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:13 -

When I say, “My bed will comfort me,

and my couch will ease my complaint,”

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:14 -

then you frighten me with dreams,

and terrify me with visions,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:15 -

so that I prefer strangling[fn] —

death rather than life in this body.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:16 -

I give up! I will not live forever.

Leave me alone, for my days are a breath.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:17 -

What is a mere human, that you think so highly of him

and pay so much attention to him?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:18 -

You inspect him every morning,

and put him to the test every moment.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:19 -

Will you ever look away from me,

or leave me alone long enough to swallow?[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:20 -

If I have sinned, what have I done to you,

Watcher of humanity?

Why have you made me your target,

so that I have become a burden to you?[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 7:21 -

Why not forgive my sin

and pardon my iniquity?

For soon I will lie down in the grave.

You will eagerly seek me, but I will be gone.
