Job 17 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible
1 My spirit is broken. My days are extinguished. A graveyard awaits me.a 2 Surely mockers surroundb me and my eyes must gaze at their rebellion.c 3 Make arrangements! Put up security for me.de Who [else] will be my sponsor?f 4 You have closed their minds to understanding, therefore You will not honor [them].g 5 If a man informs on his friends for a price, the eyes of his children will fail. 6 He has made me an object of scorn to the people; I have become a man people spit at.hi 7 My eyes have grown dim from grief, and my whole body has become but a shadow. 8 The upright are appalled at this, and the innocent are roused against the godless. 9 Yet the righteous person will hold to his way, and the one whose hands are clean will grow stronger.j 10 But come back [and try] again, all of you.k I will not find a wise man among you. 11 My days have slipped by; my plans have been ruined, even the things dear to my heart. 12 They turned night into day and [made] light [seem] near in the face of darkness. 13 If I await Sheol as my home, spread out my bed in darkness, 14 and say to the Pit: You are my father, and to the worm: My mother or my sister,l 15 where then is my hope? Who can see [any] hope for me? 16 Will it go down to the gates of Sheol, or will we descend together to the dust?
