Job 14 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
1 Man that is born of a woman is of fewa days, and full of trouble. 2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down : he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. 3 And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee? 4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one. 5 Seeing his days are determined , the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass ; 6 Turn from him, that he may rest ,b till he shall accomplish , as an hireling, his day. 7 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down , that it will sprout again , and that the tender branch thereof will not cease . 8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; 9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud , and bring forth boughs like a plant. 10 But man dieth , and wasteth away : yea, man giveth up the ghost , and where is he? 11 As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up : 12 So man lieth down , and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake , nor be raised out of their sleep. 13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret , until thy wrath be past , that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! 14 If a man die , shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait , till my change come . 15 Thou shalt call , and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands. 16 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin? 17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity. 18 And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought , and the rock is removed out of his place. 19 The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man. 20 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth : thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away . 21 His sons come to honour , and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low , but he perceiveth it not of them. 22 But his flesh upon him shall have pain , and his soul within him shall mourn .
