Job 7
New Living Translation
7"Is not all human life a struggle? Our lives are like that of a hired hand,H6635H582H776H3117H3117H7916 2like a worker who longs for the shade, like a servant waiting to be paid.H5650H7602H6738H7916H6960H6467 3I, too, have been assigned months of futility, long and weary nights of misery.H5157H3391H7723H5999H3915H4487 4Lying in bed, I think, 'When will it be morning?' But the night drags on, and I toss till dawn.H7901H559H6965H6153H4059H7646H5076H5399 5My body is covered with maggots and scabs. My skin breaks open, oozing with pus.H1320H3847H7415H1487H6083H5785H7280H3988

Job Cries Out to God

6"My days fly faster than a weaver's shuttle. They end without hope.H3117H7043H708H3615H657H8615 7O God, remember that my life is but a breath, and I will never again feel happiness.H2142H2416H7307H5869H7725H7200H2896 8You see me now, but not for long. You will look for me, but I will be gone.H5869H7210H7789H5869 9Just as a cloud dissipates and vanishes, those who die will not come back.H6051H3615H3212H3381H7585H5927 10They are gone forever from their home—never to be seen again.H7725H1004H4725H5234 11"I cannot keep from speaking. I must express my anguish. My bitter soul must complain.H2820H6310H1696H6862H7307H7878H4751H5315 12Am I a sea monster or a dragon that you must place me under guard?H3220H8577H7760H4929 13I think, 'My bed will comfort me, and sleep will ease my misery,'H559H6210H5162H4904H5375H7879 14but then you shatter me with dreams and terrify me with visions.H2865H2472H1204H2384 15I would rather be strangled—rather die than suffer like this.H5315H977H4267H4194H6106 16I hate my life and don't want to go on living. Oh, leave me alone for my few remaining days.H3988H2421H5769H2308H3117H1892 17"What are people, that you should make so much of us, that you should think of us so often?H582H1431H7896H3820 18For you examine us every morning and test us every moment.H6485H1242H974H7281 19Why won't you leave me alone, at least long enough for me to swallow!H4100H8159H7503H1104H7536 20If I have sinned, what have I done to you, O watcher of all humanity? Why make me your target? Am I a burden to you?H2398H6466H5341H120H7760H4645H4853 21Why not just forgive my sin and take away my guilt? For soon I will lie down in the dust and die. When you look for me, I will be gone."H5375H6588H5674H5771H7901H6083H7836
