Job 7

GNT 1 Human life is like forced army service, like a life of hard manual labor, NIV 1 “Do not mortals have hard service on earth? Are not their days like those of hired laborers? GNT 2 like a slave longing for cool shade; like a worker waiting to be paid. NIV 2 Like a slave longing for the evening shadows, or a hired laborer waiting to be paid, GNT 3 Month after month I have nothing to live for; night after night brings me grief. NIV 3 so I have been allotted months of futility, and nights of misery have been assigned to me. GNT 4 When I lie down to sleep, the hours drag; I toss all night and long for 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. GNT 5 My body is full of worms; it is covered with scabs; pus runs out of my sores. NIV 5 My body is clothed with worms and scabs, my skin is broken and festering. GNT 6 My days pass by without hope, pass faster than a weaver's shuttle. NIV 6 “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and they come to an end without hope. GNT 7 Remember, O God, my life is only a breath; my happiness has already ended. NIV 7 Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again. GNT 8 You see me now, but never again. If you look for me, I'll 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. GNT 9 Like a cloud that fades and is gone, we humans die and never return; we are forgotten by all who knew us. NIV 9 As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so one who goes down to the grave does not return. GNT 11 No! I can't be quiet! I am angry and bitter. I have to speak. 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. GNT 12 Why do you keep me under guard? Do you think I am a sea monster? NIV 12 Am I the sea, or the monster of the deep, that you put me under guard? GNT 13 I lie down and try to rest; I look for relief from my pain. NIV 13 When I think my bed will comfort me and my couch will ease my complaint, GNT 14 But you - you terrify me with dreams; you send me visions and nightmares NIV 14 even then you frighten me with dreams and terrify me with visions, GNT 15 until I would rather be strangled than live in this miserable body. NIV 15 so that I prefer strangling and death, rather than this body of mine. GNT 16 I give up; I am tired of living. Leave me alone. My life makes no sense. NIV 16 I despise my life; I would not live forever. Let me alone; my days have no meaning. GNT 17 Why are people so important to you? Why pay attention to what they do? NIV 17 “What is mankind that you make so much of them, that you give them so much attention, GNT 18 You inspect them every morning and test them every minute. NIV 18 that you examine them every morning and test them every moment? GNT 19 Won't you look away long enough for me to swallow my spit? NIV 19 Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant? GNT 20 Are you harmed by my sin, you jailer? Why use me for your target practice? Am I so great 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? GNT 21 Can't you ever forgive my sin? Can't you pardon the wrong I do? Soon I will be in my grave, and I'll be gone when you look for me. 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.”
