Job 7

7:1 Is there not an appointed time to man vpon earth are not his dayes also like the dayes of an hireling 7:2 As a seruant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his worke: 7:3 So am I made to possesse moneths of vanitie, and wearisome nights are appointed to me. 7:4 When I lie downe, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone and I am full of tossings to and fro, vnto the dawning of the day. 7:5 My flesh is cloathed with wormes and clods of dust, my skinne is broken, and become loathsome. 7:6 My dayes are swifter then a weauers shuttle, and are spent without hope. 7:7 O remember that my life is winde: mine eye shall no more see good. 7:8 The eye of him that hath seene me, shall see mee no more: thine eyes are vpon me, and I am not. 7:9 As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth downe to the graue, shall come vp no more. 7:10 Hee shall returne no more to his house: neither shall his place know him any more. 7:11 Therefore I will not refraine my mouth, I wil speake in the anguish of my spirit, I will complaine in the bitternesse of my soule. 7:12 Am I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch ouer me 7:13 When I say, My bed shal comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint: 7:14 Then thou skarest mee with dreames, and terrifiest me through visions. 7:15 So that my soule chooseth strangling: and death rather then my life. 7:16 I loath it, I would not liue alway: let me alone, for my dayes are vanitie. 7:17 What is man, that thou shouldest magnifie him and that thou shouldest set thine heart vpon him 7:18 And that thou shouldest visite him euery morning, and trie him euery moment 7:19 How long wilt thou not depart from me nor let me alone till I swallow downe my spittle 7:20 I haue sinned, what shall I doe vnto thee, O thou preseruer of men why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to my selfe 7:21 And why doest thou not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquitie for now shall I sleepe in the dust, and thou shalt seeke me in the morning, but I shall not be.
