Book 29 : KETUVIM - JOB - Chapter 010


My soul is weary of my life; I will give free course to my complaint; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul


I will say unto G-d: Do not condemn me; make me know wherefore Thou contendest with me


Is it good unto Thee that Thou shouldest oppress, that Thou shouldest despise the work of Thy hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked


Hast Thou eyes of flesh? or seest Thou as man seeth


Are Thy days as the days of man, or Thy years as a man's days


That Thou inquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin


Although Thou knowest that I shall not be condemned; and there is none that can deliver out of Thy hand


Thy hands have framed me and fashioned me together round about; yet Thou dost destroy me


Remember, I beseech Thee, that Thou hast fashioned me as clay; and wilt Thou bring me into dust again


Hast Thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese


Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews


Thou hast granted me life and favour, and Thy providence hath preserved my spirit


Yet these things Thou didst hide in Thy heart; I know that this is with Thee


If I sin, then Thou markest me, and Thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity


If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet shall I not lift up my head--being filled with ignominy and looking upon mine affliction


And if it exalt itself, Thou huntest me as a lion; and again Thou showest Thyself marvellous upon me


Thou renewest Thy witnesses against me, and increasest Thine indignation upon me; host succeeding host against me


Wherefore then hast Thou brought me forth out of the womb? Would that I had perished, and no eye had seen me


I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave


Are not my days few? Cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little


Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and of the shadow of death


A land of thick darkness, as darkness itself; a land of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness
