AfterH310 thisH3651 openedH6605 JobH347 his mouth,H6310 and cursedH7043 his day.H3117
And JobH347 spoke,H6030 and said,H559
Let the dayH3117 perishH6 wherein I was born,H3205 and the nightH3915 in which it was said,H559 There is a manH1397 child conceived.H2029
Let that dayH3117 be darkness;H2822 let not GodH433 regardH1875 it from above,H4605 neitherH408 let the lightH5105 shineH3313 on it.
Let darknessH2822 and the shadowH6757 of deathH6757 stainH1351 it; let a cloudH6053 dwellH7931 on it; let the blacknessH3650 of the dayH3117 terrifyH1204 it.
As for that night,H3915 let darknessH652 seizeH3947 on it; let it not be joinedH2302 to the daysH3117 of the year,H8141 let it not comeH935 into the numberH4557 of the months.H3391
See,H2009 let that nightH3915 be solitary,H1565 let noH408 joyfulH7445 voice comeH935 therein.
Let them curseH5344 it that curseH779 the day,H3117 who are readyH6264 to raiseH5782 up their mourning.H3882
Let the starsH3556 of the twilightH5399 thereof be dark;H2821 let it lookH6960 for light,H216 but have none;H369 neitherH408 let it seeH7200 the dawningH6079 of the day:H7837
BecauseH3588 it shutH5462 not up the doorsH1817 of my mother's womb,H990 nor hidH5641 sorrowH5999 from my eyes.H5869
WhyH4100 diedH4191 I not from the womb?H7358 why did I not giveH1478 up the ghostH1478 when I cameH3318 out of the belly?H990
WhyH4069 did the kneesH1290 preventH6923 me? or whyH4069 the breastsH7699 that I should suck?H3243
For nowH6258 should I have lainH7901 still and been quiet,H8252 I should have slept:H3462 thenH227 had I been at rest,H5117
With kingsH4428 and counsellorsH3289 of the earth,H776 which buildH1129 desolateH2723 placesH2723 for themselves;
OrH176 with princesH8269 that had gold,H2091 who filledH4390 their housesH1004 with silver:H3701
OrH176 as an hiddenH2934 untimelyH5309 birthH5309 I had not been;H1961 as infantsH5768 which neverH3808 sawH7200 light.H216
ThereH8033 the wickedH7563 ceaseH2308 from troubling;H7267 and thereH8033 the wearyH3019 be at rest.H5117
There the prisonersH615 restH7599 together;H3162 they hearH8085 not the voiceH6963 of the oppressor.H5065
The smallH6996 and greatH1419 are there;H8033 and the servantH5650 is freeH2670 from his master.H113
WhyH4100 is lightH216 givenH5414 to him that is in misery,H6001 and lifeH2416 to the bitterH4751 in soul;H5315
Which longH2442 for death,H4194 but it comes not; and digH2658 for it more than for hidH4301 treasures;H4301
Which rejoiceH8055 exceedingly,H413 H1524 and are glad,H7797 whenH3588 they can findH4672 the grave?H6913
Why is light given to a manH1397 whoseH834 wayH1870 is hid,H5641 and whom GodH433 has hedgedH5526 in?
For my sighingH585 comesH935 beforeH6440 I eat,H3899 and my roaringsH7581 are pouredH5413 out like the waters.H4325
For the thing which I greatly fearedH6342 is comeH857 on me, and that whichH834 I was afraidH3025 of is comeH935 to me.
I was not in safety,H7951 neitherH3808 had I rest,H8252 neitherH3808 was I quiet;H5117 yet troubleH7267 came.H935
