Job



The book of Job, chapter 14, King James Version

Chapter 14


   1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
   2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
   3 And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee?
   4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.
   5 Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;
   6 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.
   7 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.
   8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;
   9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
   10 But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?
   11 As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up:
   12 So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.
   13 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!
   14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
   15 Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.
   16 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin?
   17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity.
   18 And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place.
   19 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.
   20 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away.
   21 His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them.
   22 But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.
