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 consumed, my days are extinct, The grave is `ready' for me.

17:2 Surely there are mockers with me, And mine eye dwelleth upon their provocation.

17:3 Give now a pledge, be surety for me with thyself; Who is there that will strike hands with me?

17:4 For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: Therefore shalt thou not exalt `them'.

17:5 He that denounceth his friends for a prey, Even the eyes of his children shall fail.

17:6 But he hath made me a byword of the people; And they spit in my face.

17:7 Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, And all my members are as a shadow.

17:8 Upright men shall be astonished at this, And the innocent shall stir up himself against the godless.

17:9 Yet shall the righteous hold on his way, And he that hath clean hands shall wax stronger and stronger.

17:10 But as for you all, come on now again; And I shall not find a wise man among you.

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

17:12 They change the night into day: The light, `say they', is near unto the darkness.

17:13 If I look for Sheol as my house; If I have spread my couch in the darkness;

17:14 If I have said to corruption, Thou art my father; To the worm, `Thou art' my mother, and my sister;

17:15 Where then is my hope? And as for my hope, who shall see it?

17:16 It shall go down to the bars of Sheol, When once there is rest in the dust.
