My breathH7307 is corrupt,H2254 my daysH3117 are extinct,H2193 the gravesH6913 are ready for me.
Are there not mockersH2049 with me? and does not my eyeH5869 continueH3885 in their provocation?H4784
LayH7760 down now,H4994 put me in a suretyH6148 with you; whoH4310 is he that will strikeH8628 handsH3027 with me?
For you have hidH6845 their heartH3820 from understanding:H7922 thereforeH5921 H3651 shall you not exaltH7311 them.
He that speaksH5046 flatteryH2506 to his friends,H7453 even the eyesH5869 of his childrenH1121 shall fail.H3615
He has madeH3322 me also a bywordH4914 of the people;H5971 and aforetimeH6440 I was as a tabret.H8611
My eyeH5869 also is dimH3543 by reason of sorrow,H3708 and allH3605 my membersH3338 are as a shadow.H6738
UprightH3477 men shall be astonishedH8074 atH5921 this,H2063 and the innocentH5355 shall stirH5782 up himself againstH5921 the hypocrite.H2611
The righteousH6662 also shall holdH270 on his way,H1870 and he that has cleanH2891 handsH3027 shall be strongerH555 and stronger.
But as for you all,H3605 do you return,H7725 and comeH935 now:H4994 for I cannotH3808 findH4672 one wiseH2450 man among you.
My daysH3117 are past,H5674 my purposesH2154 are brokenH5423 off, even the thoughtsH4180 of my heart.H3824
They changeH7760 the nightH3915 into day:H3117 the lightH216 is shortH7138 becauseH6440 of darkness.H2822
IfH518 I wait,H6960 the graveH7585 is my house:H1004 I have madeH7502 my bedH3326 in the darkness.H2822
I have saidH7121 to corruption,H7845 You are my father:H1 to the worm,H7415 You are my mother,H517 and my sister.H269
And whereH346 H645 is nowH645 my hope?H8615 as for my hope,H8615 whoH4310 shall seeH7789 it?
They shall goH3381 downH3381 to the barsH905 of the pit,H7585 whenH518 our restH5183 togetherH3162 is in the dust.H6083
