The Book of Job (WEB)

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.

 10:2I will tell God, 'Do not condemn me,
      Show me why you contend with me.

 10:3Is it good to you that you should oppress,
      That you should despise the work of your hands,
      And smile on the counsel of the wicked?

 10:4Do you have eyes of flesh?
      Or do you see as man sees?

 10:5Are your days as the days of mortals,
      Or your years as man's years,

 10:6That you inquire after my iniquity,
      And search after my sin?

 10:7Although you know that I am not wicked,
      There is no one who can deliver out of your hand.

  10:8'Your hands have framed me and fashioned me altogether;
      Yet you destroy me.

 10:9Remember, I beg you, that you have fashioned me as clay.
      Will you bring me into dust again?

 10:10Haven't you poured me out like milk,
      And curdled me like cheese?

 10:11You have clothed me with skin and flesh,
      And knit me together with bones and sinews.

 10:12You have granted me life and lovingkindness.
      Your visitation has preserved my spirit.

 10:13Yet you hid these things in your heart.
      I know that this is with you:

 10:14If I sin, then you mark me.
      You will not acquit me from my iniquity.

 10:15If I am wicked, woe to me.
      If I am righteous, I still shall not lift up my head,
      Being filled with disgrace,
      And conscious of my affliction.

 10:16If my head is held high, you hunt me like a lion.
      Again you show yourself powerful to me.

 10:17You renew your witnesses against me,
      And increase your indignation on me.
      Changes and warfare are with me.

  10:18"'Why, then, have you brought me forth out of the womb?
      I wish I had given up the spirit, and no eye had seen me.

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

 10:20Aren't my days few? Cease then,
      Leave me alone, that I may find a little comfort,

 10:21Before I go where I shall not return from,
      To the land of darkness and of the shadow of death;

 10:22The land dark as midnight,
      Of the shadow of death, without any order,
      Where the light is as midnight.'"
