The Book of Job

Chapter 17

1

 My spirit hath been destroyed, My days extinguished -- graves [are] for me. 

2

 If not -- mockeries [are] with me. And in their provocations mine eye lodgeth. 

3

 Place, I pray Thee, my pledge with Thee; Who is he that striketh hand with me? 

4

 For their heart Thou hast hidden From understanding, Therefore Thou dost not exalt them. 

5

 For a portion he sheweth friendship, And the eyes of his sons are consumed. 

6

 And he set me up for a proverb of the peoples, And a wonder before them I am. 

7

 And dim from sorrow is mine eye, And my members as a shadow all of them. 

8

 Astonished are the upright at this, And the innocent against the profane Stirreth himself up. 

9

 And the righteous layeth hold [on] his way, And the clean of hands addeth strength, And -- dumb are they all. 

10

 Return, and come in, I pray you, And I find not among you a wise man. 

11

 My days have passed by, My devices have been broken off, The possessions of my heart! 

12

 Night for day they appoint, Light [is] near because of darkness. 

13

 If I wait -- Sheol [is] my house, In darkness I have spread out my couch. 

14

 To corruption I have called: -- 'Thou [art] my father.' 'My mother' and 'my sister' -- to the worm. 

15

 And where [is] now my hope? Yea, my hope, who doth behold it? 

16

 [To] the parts of Sheol ye go down, If together on the dust we may rest. 

Job 18
