Job 7

RHE 1 The life of man upon earth is a warfare, and his days are like the days of a hireling. NIV 1 “Do not mortals have hard service on earth? Are not their days like those of hired laborers? RHE 2 As a servant longeth for the shade, as the hireling looketh for the end of his work; NIV 2 Like a slave longing for the evening shadows, or a hired laborer waiting to be paid, RHE 3 So I also have had empty months, and have numbered to myself wearisome nights. NIV 3 so I have been allotted months of futility, and nights of misery have been assigned to me. RHE 4 If I lie down to sleep, I shall say: When shall I rise? and again, I shall look for the evening, and shall be filled with sorrows even till darkness. NIV 4 When I lie down I think, ‘How long before I get up?’ The night drags on, and I toss and turn until dawn. RHE 5 My flesh is clothed with rottenness and the filth of dust; my skin is withered and drawn together. NIV 5 My body is clothed with worms and scabs, my skin is broken and festering. RHE 6 My days have passed more swiftly than the web is cut by the weaver, and are consumed without any hope. NIV 6 “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and they come to an end without hope. RHE 7 Remember that my life is but wind, and my eye shall not return to see good things. NIV 7 Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again. RHE 8 Nor shall the sight of man behold me: thy eyes are upon me, and I shall be no more. NIV 8 The eye that now sees me will see me no longer; you will look for me, but I will be no more. RHE 9 As a cloud is consumed, and passeth away: so he that shall go down to hell shall not come up. NIV 9 As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so one who goes down to the grave does not return. RHE 10 Nor shall he return any more into 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. RHE 11 Wherefore, I will not spare my month, I will speak in the affliction of my spirit: I will talk with 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. RHE 12 Am I a sea, or a whale, that thou hast inclosed me in a prison? NIV 12 Am I the sea, or the monster of the deep, that you put me under guard? RHE 13 If I say: My bed shall comfort me, and I shall be relieved, speaking with myself on my couch: NIV 13 When I think my bed will comfort me and my couch will ease my complaint, RHE 14 Thou wilt frighten me with dreams, and terrify me with visions. NIV 14 even then you frighten me with dreams and terrify me with visions, RHE 15 So that my soul rather chooseth hanging, and my bones death. NIV 15 so that I prefer strangling and death, rather than this body of mine. RHE 16 I have done with hope, I shall now live no longer: spare me, for my days are nothing. NIV 16 I despise my life; I would not live forever. Let me alone; my days have no meaning. RHE 17 What is a man, that thou shouldst magnify him or why dost thou set thy heart upon him? NIV 17 “What is mankind that you make so much of them, that you give them so much attention, RHE 18 Thou visitest him early in the morning, and thou provest him suddenly. NIV 18 that you examine them every morning and test them every moment? RHE 19 How long wilt thou not spare me, nor suffer me to swallow down my spittle? NIV 19 Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant? RHE 20 I have sinned: what shall I do to thee, O keeper of men? why hast thou set me opposite to thee. and am I become burdensome to myself? NIV 20 If I have sinned, what have I done to you, you who see everything we do? Why have you made me your target? Have I become a burden to you? RHE 21 Why dost thou not remove my sin, and why dost thou not take away my iniquity? Behold now I shall sleep in the dust: and if thou seek me in the morning, 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.”
