Job 10:22  (King James Version)
A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.

the shadow of death
Where death projects his shadow, intercepting the light of life: without any order, having no arrangement, no distinction of inhabitants; the poor and the rich are there, the king and the beggar, their bodies in equal corruption and disgrace: where the light is as darkness, a palpable obscure, space and place, with only such a light or capability of distinction, as renders "darkness visible."
