Job - Chapter 010

10:1
My soul is weary of my life; I will give free course to my complaint; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

10:2
I will say unto God: Do not condemn me; make me know wherefore Thou contendest with me.

10:3
Is it good unto Thee that Thou shouldest oppress, that Thou shouldest despise the work of Thy hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

10:4
Hast Thou eyes of flesh? or seest Thou as man seeth?

10:5
Are Thy days as the days of man, or Thy years as a man's days,

10:6
That Thou inquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin,

10:7
Although Thou knowest that I shall not be condemned; and there is none that can deliver out of Thy hand?

10:8
Thy hands have framed me and fashioned me together round about; yet Thou dost destroy me!

10:9
Remember, I beseech Thee, that Thou hast fashioned me as clay; and wilt Thou bring me into dust again?

10:10
Hast Thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?

10:11
Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews.

10:12
Thou hast granted me life and favour, and Thy providence hath preserved my spirit.

10:13
Yet these things Thou didst hide in Thy heart; I know that this is with Thee;

10:14
If I sin, then Thou markest me, and Thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.

10:15
If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet shall I not lift up my head--being filled with ignominy and looking upon mine affliction.

10:16
And if it exalt itself, Thou huntest me as a lion; and again Thou showest Thyself marvellous upon me.

10:17
Thou renewest Thy witnesses against me, and increasest Thine indignation upon me; host succeeding host against me.

10:18
Wherefore then hast Thou brought me forth out of the womb? Would that I had perished, and no eye had seen me!

10:19
I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.

10:20
Are not my days few? Cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,

10:21
Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and of the shadow of death;

10:22
A land of thick darkness, as darkness itself; a land of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.
