Job 10

GNTA 1 I am tired of living. Listen to my bitter complaint. NIV 1 “I loathe my very life; therefore I will give free rein to my complaint and speak out in the bitterness of my soul. GNTA 2 Don't condemn me, God. Tell me! What is the charge against me? NIV 2 I say to God: Do not declare me guilty, but tell me what charges you have against me. GNTA 3 Is it right for you to be so cruel? To despise what you yourself have made? And then to smile on the schemes of wicked people? NIV 3 Does it please you to oppress me, to spurn the work of your hands, while you smile on the plans of the wicked? GNTA 4 Do you see things as we do? NIV 4 Do you have eyes of flesh? Do you see as a mortal sees? GNTA 5 Is your life as short as ours? NIV 5 Are your days like those of a mortal or your years like those of a strong man, GNTA 6 Then why do you track down all my sins and hunt down every fault I have? NIV 6 that you must search out my faults and probe after my sin— GNTA 7 You know that I am not guilty, that no one can save me from you. NIV 7 though you know that I am not guilty and that no one can rescue me from your hand? GNTA 8 Your hands formed and shaped me, and now those same hands destroy me. NIV 8 “Your hands shaped me and made me. Will you now turn and destroy me? GNTA 9 Remember that you made me from clay; are you going to crush me back to dust? NIV 9 Remember that you molded me like clay. Will you now turn me to dust again? GNTA 10 You gave my father strength to beget me; you made me grow in my mother's womb. NIV 10 Did you not pour me out like milk and curdle me like cheese, GNTA 11 You formed my body with bones and sinews and covered the bones with muscles and skin. NIV 11 clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? GNTA 12 You have given me life and constant love, and your care has kept me alive. NIV 12 You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit. GNTA 13 But now I know that all that time you were secretly planning to harm me. NIV 13 “But this is what you concealed in your heart, and I know that this was in your mind: GNTA 14 You were watching to see if I would sin, so that you could refuse to forgive me. NIV 14 If I sinned, you would be watching me and would not let my offense go unpunished. GNTA 15 As soon as I sin, I'm in trouble with you, but when I do right, I get no credit. I am miserable and covered with shame. NIV 15 If I am guilty—woe to me! Even if I am innocent, I cannot lift my head, for I am full of shame and drowned in my affliction. GNTA 16 If I have any success at all, you hunt me down like a lion; to hurt me you even work miracles. NIV 16 If I hold my head high, you stalk me like a lion and again display your awesome power against me. GNTA 17 You always have some witness against me; your anger toward me grows and grows; you always plan some new attack. NIV 17 You bring new witnesses against me and increase your anger toward me; your forces come against me wave upon wave. GNTA 18 Why, God, did you let me be born? I should have died before anyone saw me. NIV 18 “Why then did you bring me out of the womb? I wish I had died before any eye saw me. GNTA 19 To go from the womb straight to the grave would have been as good as never existing. NIV 19 If only I had never come into being, or had been carried straight from the womb to the grave! GNTA 20 Isn't my life almost over? Leave me alone! Let me enjoy the time I have left. NIV 20 Are not my few days almost over? Turn away from me so I can have a moment’s joy GNTA 21 I am going soon and will never come back - going to a land that is dark and gloomy, NIV 21 before I go to the place of no return, to the land of gloom and utter darkness, GNTA 22 a land of darkness, shadows, and confusion, where the light itself is darkness. NIV 22 to the land of deepest night, of utter darkness and disorder, where even the light is like darkness.”
