Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:1 - After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed his day.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:2 - And Job answered and said,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:3 - Let the day perish in which I was born, and the night that said, There is a man child conceived.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:4 - That day -- let it be darkness, let not God care for it from above, neither let light shine upon it:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:5 - Let darkness and the shadow of death claim it; let clouds dwell upon it; let darkeners of the day terrify it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:6 - That night -- let gloom seize upon it; let it not rejoice among the days of the year; let it not come into the number of the months.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:7 - Behold, let that night be barren; let no joyful sound come therein;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:8 - Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to rouse Leviathan;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:9 - Let the stars of its twilight be dark; let it wait for light, and have none, neither let it see the eyelids of the dawn:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:10 - Because it shut not up the doors of the womb that bore me, and hid not trouble from mine eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:11 - Wherefore did I not die from the womb, -- come forth from the belly and expire?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:12 - Why did the knees meet me? and wherefore the breasts, that I should suck?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:13 - For now should I have lain down and been quiet; I should have slept: then had I been at rest,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:14 - With kings and counsellors of the earth, who build desolate places 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 as a hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants that have not seen the light.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:17 - There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the wearied are at rest.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:18 - The prisoners together are at ease; they hear not the voice of the taskmaster.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:19 - The small and great are there, and the bondman freed from his master.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:20 - Wherefore is light given to him that is in trouble, and life to those bitter of soul,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:21 - Who long for death, and it cometh not, and dig for it more than for hidden treasures;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:22 - Who rejoice even exultingly and are glad when they find the grave? --

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:23 - To the man whose way is hidden, and whom God hath hedged in?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:24 - For my sighing cometh before my bread, and my groanings are poured out like the waters.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:25 - For I feared a fear, and it hath come upon me, and that which I dreaded hath come to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:26 - I was not in safety, neither had I quietness, neither was I at rest, and trouble came.
DBY

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
