Job 3

3:1 After this, opened Iob his mouth, and cursed his day. 3:2 And Iob spake, and said, 3:3 Let the day perish, wherein I was borne, and the night in which it was said, There is a man-childe conceiued. 3:4 Let that day bee darkenesse, let not God regard it from aboue, neither let the light shine vpon it. 3:5 Let darkenes and the shadowe of death staine it, let a cloud dwell vpon it, let the blacknes of the day terrifie it. 3:6 As for that night, let darkenesse seaze vpon it, let it not be ioyned vnto the dayes of the yeere, let it not come into the number of the moneths. 3:7 Loe, let that night be solitarie, let no ioyfull voice come therein. 3:8 Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise vp their mourning. 3:9 Let the starres of the twilight thereof be darke, let it looke for light, but haue none, neither let it see the dawning of the day: 3:10 Because it shut not vp the doores of my mothers wombe, nor hid sorrowe from mine eyes. 3:11 Why died I not from the wombe why did I not giue vp the ghost when I came out of the bellie 3:12 Why did the knees preuent mee or why the breasts, that I should sucke 3:13 For now should I haue lien still and beene quiet, I should haue slept; then had I bene at rest, 3:14 With Kings and counsellers of the earth, which built desolate places for themselues, 3:15 Or with Princes that had golde, who filled their houses with siluer: 3:16 Or as an hidden vntimely birth, I had not bene; as infants which neuer saw light. 3:17 There the wicked cease from troubling: and there the wearie be at rest. 3:18 There the prisoners rest together, they heare not the voice of the oppressour. 3:19 The small and great are there, and the seruant is free from his master. 3:20 Wherefore is light giuen to him that is in misery, and life vnto the bitter in soule 3:21 Which long for death, but it commeth not, and dig for it more then for hid treasures: 3:22 Which reioice exceedingly, and are glad when they can finde the graue 3:23 Why is light giuen to a man, whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in 3:24 For my sighing commeth before I eate, and my roarings are powred out like the waters. 3:25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come vpon me, and that which I was afraid of, is come vnto me. 3:26 I was not in safetie, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet: yet trouble came.
