Jb 7:1Does not man have a term of hard service on earth? / And are his days not like the days of a hired hand?

Jb 7:2Like a servant who longs for the shade, / And like a hired hand who waits for his pay,

Jb 7:3So I am made to inherit months of vanity, / And nights of trouble are appointed to me.

Jb 7:4If I lie down, I say, / When will I arise? But the evening is long, / And I am full of tossings until the dawn.

Jb 7:5My flesh is clothed with worms and dirt clods; / My skin crusts and then oozes again.

Jb 7:6My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle / And are spent without hope.

Jb 7:7Remember that my life is a breath; / My eye will not see good again.

Jb 7:8The eye of him who sees me will not look on me; / Your eyes will be on me, but I will not be.

Jb 7:9The cloud is consumed and goes away: / Likewise he who goes down into Sheol does not come up.

Jb 7:10He returns no more to his house, / Nor does his place know him anymore.

Jb 7:11For my part, I also will not restrain my mouth; / I will speak in the distress of my spirit; / I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.

Jb 7:12Am I the sea, or a sea serpent, / That You must set a watch over me?

Jb 7:13When I say, My bed will comfort me, / My couch will bear up my complaint;

Jb 7:14Then You scare me with dreams / And terrify me with visions,

Jb 7:15So that my soul would choose strangulation / And death rather than my bones.

Jb 7:16I loathe life; I would not live forever. / Leave me alone, for my days are a mere breath.

Jb 7:17What is mortal man that You magnify him, / And that You consider him,

Jb 7:18And that You visit him every morning, / You try him every moment?

Jb 7:19How long before You look away from me, / Before You abandon me until I swallow my spittle?

Jb 7:20If I have sinned, what have I done to You, O Watcher of man? / Why have You made me Your target so that I have become a burden to You?

Jb 7:21And why do You not forgive my transgression / And take away my iniquity? / For now I may lie down in the dust; / And You will seek me out, and I will not be.
