Job's Life Seems Futile

1 "Is F59 not man forced R151 to labor on earth,

And are not his days like the days of a R152 hired man?

2 "As a slave who pants for the shade,

And as a hired man who eagerly waits for his wages,

3 So am I allotted months of vanity,

And nights R153 of trouble are appointed me.

4 "When I lie R154 down I say,

`When shall I arise?'

But the night continues,

And I am continually F60 tossing until dawn.

5 "My flesh R155 is clothed with worms and a crust of dirt,

My skin hardens and runs.

6 "My days are swifter R156 than a weaver's shuttle,

And come to an end without R157 hope.

7 "Remember that my life is R158 but breath;

My eye will not R159 again see good.

8 "The eye R160 of him who sees me will behold me no longer;

Your eyes will be on me, but I R161 will not be.

9 "When a cloud R162 vanishes, it is gone,

So he R163 who goes down to Sheol R164 does not come up.

10 "He will not return again to his house,

Nor will his R165 place know him anymore.

11 "Therefore I R166 will not restrain my mouth;

I will speak in the anguish of my spirit,

I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.

12 "Am I the sea, or the R167 sea monster,

That You set a guard over me?

13 "If I say, `My R168 bed will comfort me,

My couch will ease F61 my complaint,'

14 Then You frighten me with dreams

And terrify me by visions;

15 So that my soul would choose suffocation,

Death rather than my pains. F62

16 "I waste R169 F63 away; I will not live forever.

Leave me alone, for R170 my days are but a breath.

17 "What R171 is man that You magnify him,

And that You are F64 concerned about him,

18 That You R172 examine him every morning

And try him every moment?

19 "Will R173 F65 You never turn Your gaze away from me,

Nor let me alone until I swallow my spittle?

20 "Have R174 I sinned? What have I done to You,

O watcher R175 of men?

Why have You set me as Your target,

So that I am a burden to myself?

21 "Why then do R176 You not pardon my transgression

And take away my iniquity?

For now I will lie R177 down in the dust;

And You will seek me, but R178 I will not be."
