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 shall be wasted, my days shall be shortened, and only the grave remaineth for me.

17:2 I have not sinned, and my eye abideth in bitterness.

17:3 Deliver me O Lord, and set me beside thee, and let any man's hand fight against me.

17:4 Thou hast set their heart far from understanding, therefore they shall not be exalted.

17:5 He promiseth a prey to his companions, and the eyes of his children shall fail.

17:6 He hath made me as it were a byword of the people, and I am an example before them.

17:7 My eye is dim through indignation, and my limbs are brought as it were to nothing.

17:8 The just shall be astonished at this, and the innocent shall be raised up against the hypocrite.

17:9 And the just man shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.

17:10 Wherefore be you all converted, and come, and I shall not find among you any wise man.

17:11 My days have passed away, my thoughts are dissipated, tormenting my heart.

17:12 They have turned night into day, and after darkness I hope for light again.

17:13 If I wait hell is my house, and I have made my bed in darkness.

17:14 If I have said to rottenness: Thou art my father; to worms, my mother and my sister.

17:15 Where is now then my expectation, and who considereth my patience?

17:16 All that I have shall go down into the deepest pit: thinkest thou that there at least I shall have rest?
