NIV 22 who are filled with gladness and rejoice when they reach the grave? NKJV 23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hidden, And whom God has hedged in? NIV 23 Why is life given to a man whose way is hidden, whom God has hedged in? NKJV 24 For my sighing comes before I eat, And my groanings pour out like water. NIV 24 For sighing has become my daily food; my groans pour out like water. NKJV 25 For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, And what I dreaded has happened to me. NIV 25 What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. NKJV 26 I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes." NIV 26 I have no peace, no quietness; I have no rest, but only turmoil.”
