The book of Job, chapter 17, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 17


   1 Spiritus meus attenuatus est, dies mei exstincti, et solum mihi superest sepulcrum.
   2 Nonne irrisiones circumdant me, et in amaritudinibus moratur oculus meus?
   3 Pone pignus pro me iuxta te; et quis umquam spondens percutiet manum meam?
   4 Cor eorum longe fecisti a disciplina; propterea non exaltabuntur.
   5 Praedam pollicetur sociis, sed oculi filiorum eius deficient.
   6 Posuit me quasi in proverbium vulgi et conspuendum in faciem.
   7 Caligavit ab indignatione oculus meus, et membra mea quasi in umbram redacta sunt.
   8 Stupebunt iusti super hoc, et innocens contra impium excitabitur.
   9 Et tenebit iustus viam suam, et mundus manibus addet fortitudinem.
   10 Igitur omnes vos convertimini et venite, et non inveniam in vobis ullum sapientem.
   11 Dies mei transierunt, cogitationes meae dissipatae sunt et desideria cordis mei.
   12 Noctem verterunt in diem; et rursum post tenebras properat lux.
   13 Si sustinuero, infernus domus mea est; et in tenebris stravi lectulum meum.
   14 Putredini dixi: Pater meus es!; Mater mea et soror mea! vermibus.
   15 Ubi est ergo nunc praestolatio mea, et patientiam meam quis considerat?
   16 In profundissimum infernum descendent omnia mea; simul in pulvere erit requies mihi?".

King James Version

   1 My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me.
   2 Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?
   3 Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strike hands with me?
   4 For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt them.
   5 He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.
   6 He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.
   7 Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.
   8 Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.
   9 The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
   10 But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you.
   11 My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.
   12 They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.
   13 If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.
   14 I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.
   15 And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?
   16 They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.
