Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:3 - “Let the day perish on which I was to be born,
And the night which said, ‘A [fn]boy is conceived.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:4 - “May that day be darkness;
Let not God above care for it,
Nor light shine on it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:5 - “Let darkness and black gloom claim it;
Let a cloud settle on it;
Let the blackness of the day terrify it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:6 - As for that night, let darkness seize 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 shout enter it.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:8 - “Let those curse it who curse the day,
Who are [fn]prepared to rouse Leviathan.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:9 - “Let the stars of its twilight be darkened;
Let it wait for light but have none,
And let it not see the [fn]breaking dawn;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:10 - Because it did not shut the opening of my mother’s womb,
Or hide trouble from my eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:11 - “Why did I not die [fn]at birth,
Come forth from the womb and expire?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:12 - “Why did the knees receive me,
And why the breasts, that I should suck?

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:14 - With kings and with counselors of the earth,
Who rebuilt ruins for themselves;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:15 - Or with princes who had gold,
Who were filling their houses with silver.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:16 - “Or like a miscarriage which is [fn]discarded, I would not be,
As infants that never saw light.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:17 - “There the wicked cease from raging,
And there the [fn]weary are at rest.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:19 - “The small and the great are there,
And the slave is free from his master.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:20 - “Why is light given to him who suffers,
And life to the bitter of soul,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:21 - Who [fn]long for death, but there is none,
And dig for it more than for hidden treasures,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:22 - Who rejoice greatly,
And exult when they find the grave?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:23 - Why is light given to a man whose way is hidden,
And whom God has hedged in?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:24 - “For my groaning comes at the sight of my food,
And my cries pour out like water.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:25 - “For [fn]what I fear comes upon me,
And what I dread befalls me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 3:26 - “I am not at ease, nor am I quiet,
And I am not at rest, but turmoil comes.”
