Job 7

WEB 1 "Isn't a man forced to labor on earth? Aren't his days like the days of a hired hand? NIV 1 "Does not man have hard service on earth? Are not his days like those of a hired man? WEB 2 As a servant who earnestly desires the shadow, As a hireling who looks for his wages, NIV 2 Like a slave longing for the evening shadows, or a hired man waiting eagerly for his wages, WEB 3 So am I made to possess months of misery, Wearisome nights are appointed to me. NIV 3 so I have been allotted months of futility, and nights of misery have been assigned to me. WEB 4 When I lie down, I say, 'When shall I arise, and the night be gone?' I toss and turn until the dawning of the day. NIV 4 When I lie down I think, 'How long before I get up?' The night drags on, and I toss till dawn. WEB 5 My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust. My skin closes up, and breaks out afresh. NIV 5 My body is clothed with worms and scabs, my skin is broken and festering. WEB 6 My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, And are spent without hope. NIV 6 "My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and they come to an end without hope. WEB 7 Oh remember that my life is a breath. My eye shall no more see good. NIV 7 Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again. WEB 8 The eye of him who sees me shall see me no more. Your eyes shall be on me, but I shall not be. NIV 8 The eye that now sees me will see me no longer; you will look for me, but I will be no more. WEB 9 As the cloud is consumed and vanishes away, So he who goes down to Sheol shall come up no more. NIV 9 As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so he who goes down to the grave does not return. WEB 10 He shall return no more to his house, Neither shall his place know him any more. NIV 10 He will never come to his house again; his place will know him no more. WEB 11 "Therefore I will not keep silent. I will speak in the anguish of my spirit. I will complain in the bitterness of my soul. NIV 11 "Therefore I will not keep silent; I will speak out in the anguish of my spirit, I will complain in the bitterness of my soul. WEB 12 Am I a sea, or a sea-monster, That you put a guard over me? NIV 12 Am I the sea, or the monster of the deep, that you put me under guard? WEB 13 When I say, 'My bed shall comfort me, My couch shall ease my complaint;' NIV 13 When I think my bed will comfort me and my couch will ease my complaint, WEB 14 Then you scar me with dreams, And terrify me through visions: NIV 14 even then you frighten me with dreams and terrify me with visions, WEB 15 So that my soul chooses strangling, Death rather than my bones. NIV 15 so that I prefer strangling and death, rather than this body of mine. WEB 16 I loathe my life. I don't want to live forever. Leave me alone; for my days are but a breath. NIV 16 I despise my life; I would not live forever. Let me alone; my days have no meaning. WEB 17 What is man, that you should magnify him, That you should set your mind on him, NIV 17 "What is man that you make so much of him, that you give him so much attention, WEB 18 That you should visit him every morning, And test him every moment? NIV 18 that you examine him every morning and test him every moment? WEB 19 How long will you not look away from me, Nor leave me alone until I swallow down my spittle? NIV 19 Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant? WEB 20 If I have sinned, what do I do to you, you watcher of men? Why have you set me as a mark for you, So that I am a burden to myself? NIV 20 If I have sinned, what have I done to you, O watcher of men? Why have you made me your target? Have I become a burden to you? WEB 21 Why do you not pardon my disobedience, and take away my iniquity? For now shall I lie down in the dust. You will seek me diligently, but I shall not be." NIV 21 Why do you not pardon my offenses and forgive my sins? For I will soon lie down in the dust; you will search for me, but I will be no more."
