Job 14
New Living Translation
14"How frail is humanity! How short is life, how full of trouble!H120H3205H802H7116H3117H7649H7267 2We blossom like a flower and then wither. Like a passing shadow, we quickly disappear.H3318H6731H5243H1272H6738H5975 3Must you keep an eye on such a frail creature and demand an accounting from me?H6491H5869H2088H935H4941 4Who can bring purity out of an impure person? No one!H5414H2889H2931H259 5You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer.H518H3117H2782H4557H2320H6213H2706H5674 6So leave us alone and let us rest! We are like hired hands, so let us finish our work in peace.H8159H2308H7521H7916H3117 7"Even a tree has more hope! If it is cut down, it will sprout again and grow new branches.H3426H8615H6086H3772H2498H3127H2308 8Though its roots have grown old in the earth and its stump decays,H8328H2204H776H1503H4191H6083 9at the scent of water it will bud and sprout again like a new seedling.H7381H4325H6524H6213H7105H5194 10"But when people die, their strength is gone. They breathe their last, and then where are they?H1397H4191H2522H120H1478 11As water evaporates from a lake and a river disappears in drought,H4325H235H3220H5104H2717H3001 12people are laid to rest and do not rise again. Until the heavens are no more, they will not wake up nor be roused from their sleep.H376H7901H6965H8064H1115H6974H5782H8142 13"I wish you would hide me in the grave and forget me there until your anger has passed. But mark your calendar to think of me again!H5414H6845H7585H5641H639H7725H7896H2706H2142 14Can the dead live again? If so, this would give me hope through all my years of struggle, and I would eagerly await the release of death.H1397H4191H2421H3117H6635H3176H2487H935 15You would call and I would answer, and you would yearn for me, your handiwork.H7121H6030H3700H4639H3027 16For then you would guard my steps, instead of watching for my sins.H5608H6806H8104H2403 17My sins would be sealed in a pouch, and you would cover my guilt.H6588H2856H6872H2950H5771 18"But instead, as mountains fall and crumble and as rocks fall from a cliff,H199H2022H5307H5034H6697H6275H4725 19as water wears away the stones and floods wash away the soil, so you destroy people's hope.H4325H7833H68H7857H5599H6083H776H6H8615H582 20You always overpower them, and they pass from the scene. You disfigure them in death and send them away.H8630H5331H1980H8138H6440H7971 21They never know if their children grow up in honor or sink to insignificance.H1121H3513H3045H6819H995 22They suffer painfully; their life is full of trouble."H1320H3510H5315H56
