Job 17

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

17:1 My spirit is broken, my days are ended, the last resting-place is ready for me.

17:2 Truly, those who make sport of me are round about me, and my eyes become dark because of their bitter laughing.

17:3 Be pleased, now, to be responsible for me to yourself; for there is no other who will put his hand in mine.

17:4 You have kept their hearts from wisdom: for this cause you will not give them honour.

17:5 As for him who is false to his friend for a reward, light will be cut off from the eyes of his children.

17:6 He has made me a word of shame to the peoples; I have become a mark for their sport.

17:7 My eyes have become dark because of my pain, and all my body is wasted to a shade.

17:8 The upright are surprised at this, and he who has done no wrong is troubled because of the evil-doers.

17:9 Still the upright keeps on his way, and he who has clean hands gets new strength.

17:10 But come back, now, all of you, come; and I will not see a wise man among you.

17:11 My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the desires of my heart.

17:12 They are changing night into day; they say, The light is near the dark.

17:13 If I am waiting for the underworld as my house, if I have made my bed in the dark;

17:14 If I say to the earth, You are my father; and to the worm, My mother and my sister;

17:15 Where then is my hope? and who will see my desire?

17:16 Will they go down with me into the underworld? Will we go down together into the dust?
