Job 17

17:1 My spirit hath been destroyed, My days extinguished--graves [are] for me. 17:2 If not--mockeries [are] with me. And in their provocations mine eye lodgeth. 17:3 Place, I pray Thee, my pledge with Thee; Who is he that striketh hand with me 17:4 For their heart Thou hast hidden From understanding, Therefore Thou dost not exalt them. 17:5 For a portion he sheweth friendship, And the eyes of his sons are consumed. 17:6 And he set me up for a proverb of the peoples, And a wonder before them I am. 17:7 And dim from sorrow is mine eye, And my members as a shadow all of them. 17:8 Astonished are the upright at this, And the innocent against the profane Stirreth himself up. 17:9 And the righteous layeth hold [on] his way, And the clean of hands addeth strength, And--dumb are they all.  17:10 Return, and come in, I pray you, And I find not among you a wise man. 17:11 My days have passed by, My devices have been broken off, The possessions of my heart! 17:12 Night for day they appoint, Light [is] near because of darkness. 17:13 If I wait--Sheol [is] my house, In darkness I have spread out my couch. 17:14 To corruption I have called: --`Thou [art] my father.' `My mother' and `my sister' --to the worm. 17:15 And where [is] now my hope Yea, my hope, who doth behold it 17:16 [ To] the parts of Sheol ye go down, If together on the dust we may rest.
