Job 14

CEBA 1 All of us are born of women, have few days, and are full of turmoil. NIV 1 “Mortals, born of woman, are of few days and full of trouble. CEBA 2 Like a flower, we bloom, then wither, flee like a shadow, and don't last. NIV 2 They spring up like flowers and wither away; like fleeting shadows, they do not endure. CEBA 3 (Yes, you open your eyes on this one; you bring me into trial against you.) NIV 3 Do you fix your eye on them? Will you bring them before you for judgment? CEBA 4 Who can make pure from impure? Nobody. NIV 4 Who can bring what is pure from the impure? No one! CEBA 5 If our days are fixed, the number of our months with you, you set a statute and we can't exceed it. NIV 5 A person’s days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed. CEBA 6 Look away from us that we may rest, until we are satisfied like a worker at day's end. NIV 6 So look away from him and let him alone, till he has put in his time like a hired laborer. CEBA 7 Indeed there is hope for a tree. If it's cut down and still sprouting and its shoots don't fail, NIV 7 “At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. CEBA 8 if its roots age in the ground and its stump dies in the dust, NIV 8 Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, CEBA 9 at the scent of water, it will bud and produce sprouts like a plant. NIV 9 yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant. CEBA 10 But a human dies and lies there; a person expires, and where is he? NIV 10 But a man dies and is laid low; he breathes his last and is no more. CEBA 11 Water vanishes from the sea; a river dries up completely. NIV 11 As the water of a lake dries up or a riverbed becomes parched and dry, CEBA 12 But a human lies down and doesn't rise until the heavens cease; they don't get up and awaken from sleep. NIV 12 so he lies down and does not rise; till the heavens are no more, people will not awake or be roused from their sleep. CEBA 13 I wish you would hide me in the underworld, conceal me until your anger passes, set a time for me, and remember me. NIV 13 “If only you would hide me in the grave and conceal me till your anger has passed! If only you would set me a time and then remember me! CEBA 14 If people die, will they live again? All the days of my service I would wait until my restoration took place. NIV 14 If someone dies, will they live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait for my renewal to come. CEBA 15 You would call, and I would answer you; you would long for your handiwork. NIV 15 You will call and I will answer you; you will long for the creature your hands have made. CEBA 16 Though you now number my steps, you would not keep a record of my sin. NIV 16 Surely then you will count my steps but not keep track of my sin. CEBA 17 My rebellion is sealed in a bag; you would cover my sin. NIV 17 My offenses will be sealed up in a bag; you will cover over my sin. CEBA 18 But an eroding mountain breaks up, and rock is displaced. NIV 18 “But as a mountain erodes and crumbles and as a rock is moved from its place, CEBA 19 Water wears away boulders; floods carry away soil; you destroy a people's hope. NIV 19 as water wears away stones and torrents wash away the soil, so you destroy a person’s hope. CEBA 20 You overpower them relentlessly, and they die; you change their appearance and send them away. NIV 20 You overpower them once for all, and they are gone; you change their countenance and send them away. CEBA 21 Their children achieve honor, and they don't know it; their children become insignificant, and they don't see it. NIV 21 If their children are honored, they do not know it; if their offspring are brought low, they do not see it. CEBA 22 They only feel the pain of their body, and they mourn for themselves. NIV 22 They feel but the pain of their own bodies and mourn only for themselves.”
