My breatha is corrupt , my days are extinct , the graves are ready for me.
Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eyecontinueb in their provocation ?
Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strikehands with me?
For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt them.
He that speakethflattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail .
He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetimec I was as a tabret.7
Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my membersd are as a shadow.8Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.9
The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath cleanhands shall bee stronger and stronger.10But as for you all, do ye return , and come now : for I cannot find one wise man among you.
My days are past , my purposes are broken off , even the thoughtsf of my heart.12
They change the night into day: the light is shortgbecause of darkness.13
If I wait , the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.14
I have saidh to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.15
And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?
They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our resttogether is in the dust.
