Job 10

10:1 My soul hath been weary of my life, I leave off my talking to myself, I speak in the bitterness of my soul. 10:2 I say unto God, `Do not condemn me, Let me know why Thou dost strive [with] me. 10:3 Is it good for Thee that Thou dost oppress That Thou despisest the labour of Thy hands, And on the counsel of the wicked hast shone 10:4 Eyes of flesh hast Thou As man seeth--seest Thou 10:5 As the days of man [are] Thy days Thy years as the days of a man 10:6 That Thou inquirest for mine iniquity, And for my sin seekest 10:7 For Thou knowest that I am not wicked, And there is no deliverer from Thy hand.  10:8 Thy hands have taken pains about me, And they make me together round about, And Thou swallowest me up! 10:9 Remember, I pray Thee, That as clay Thou hast made me, And unto dust Thou dost bring me back. 10:10 Dost Thou not as milk pour me out And as cheese curdle me 10:11 Skin and flesh Thou dost put on me, And with bones and sinews dost fence me. 10:12 Life and kindness Thou hast done with me. And Thy inspection hath preserved my spirit. 10:13 And these Thou hast laid up in Thy heart, I have known that this [is] with Thee.  10:14 If I sinned, then Thou hast observed me, And from mine iniquity dost not acquit me, 10:15 If I have done wickedly--woe to me, And righteously--I lift not up my head, Full of shame--then see my affliction, 10:16 And it riseth--as a lion Thou huntest me. And Thou turnest back--Thou shewest Thyself wonderful in me. 10:17 Thou renewest Thy witnesses against me, And dost multiply Thine anger with me, Changes and warfare [are] with me. 10:18 And why from the womb Hast Thou brought me forth I expire, and the eye doth not see me. 10:19 As I had not been, I am, From the belly to the grave I am brought, 10:20 Are not my days few Cease then, and put from me, And I brighten up a little, 10:21 Before I go, and return not, Unto a land of darkness and death-shade, 10:22 A land of obscurity as thick darkness, Death-shade--and no order, And the shining [is] as thick darkness.'
