Job 7

CSB 1 Isn't mankind consigned to forced labor on earth? Are not his days like those of a hired hand? NIV 1 “Do not mortals have hard service on earth? Are not their days like those of hired laborers? CSB 2 Like a slave he longs for shade; like a hired man he waits for his pay. NIV 2 Like a slave longing for the evening shadows, or a hired laborer waiting to be paid, CSB 3 So I have been made to inherit months of futility, and troubled nights have been assigned to me. NIV 3 so I have been allotted months of futility, and nights of misery have been assigned to me. CSB 4 When I lie down I think: When will I get up? But the evening drags on endlessly, and I toss and turn until dawn. 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. CSB 5 My flesh is clothed with maggots and encrusted with dirt. My skin forms scabs and then oozes. NIV 5 My body is clothed with worms and scabs, my skin is broken and festering. CSB 6 My days pass more swiftly than a weaver's shuttle; they come to an end without hope. NIV 6 “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and they come to an end without hope. CSB 7 Remember that my life is [but] a breath. My eye will never again see anything good. NIV 7 Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again. CSB 8 The eye of anyone who looks on me will no longer see me. Your eyes will look for me, but I will be gone. NIV 8 The eye that now sees me will see me no longer; you will look for me, but I will be no more. CSB 9 As a cloud fades away and vanishes, so the one who goes down to Sheol will never rise again. NIV 9 As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so one who goes down to the grave does not return. CSB 10 He will never return to his house; his hometown will no longer remember him. NIV 10 He will never come to his house again; his place will know him no more. CSB 11 Therefore I will not restrain my mouth. I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in 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. CSB 12 Am I the sea or a sea monster, that You keep me under guard? NIV 12 Am I the sea, or the monster of the deep, that you put me under guard? CSB 13 When I say: My bed will comfort me, and my couch will ease my complaint, NIV 13 When I think my bed will comfort me and my couch will ease my complaint, CSB 14 then You frighten me with dreams, and terrify me with visions, NIV 14 even then you frighten me with dreams and terrify me with visions, CSB 15 so that I prefer strangling, death rather than life in this body. NIV 15 so that I prefer strangling and death, rather than this body of mine. CSB 16 I give up! I will not live forever. Leave me alone, for my days are a breath. NIV 16 I despise my life; I would not live forever. Let me alone; my days have no meaning. CSB 17 What is man, that You think so highly of him and pay so much attention to him? NIV 17 “What is mankind that you make so much of them, that you give them so much attention, CSB 18 You inspect him every morning, and put him to the test every moment. NIV 18 that you examine them every morning and test them every moment? CSB 19 Will You ever look away from me, or leave me alone until I swallow my saliva? NIV 19 Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant? CSB 20 [If] I have sinned, what have I done to You, Watcher of mankind? Why have You made me Your target, so that I have become a burden to You? 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? CSB 21 Why not forgive my sin and pardon my transgression? For soon I will lie down in the grave. You will eagerly seek me, but I will be gone. 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.”
