Job Chapter 14 (Index)

001  Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

002  He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.

003  And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee?

004  Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.

005  Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;

006  Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.

007  For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

008  Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;

009  Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.

010  But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?

011  As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up:

012  So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.

013  O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!

014  If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.

015  Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

016  For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin?

017  My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity.

018  And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place.

019  The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man.

020  Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away.

021  His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them.

022  But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.
