JOB · Chapter 10
10:1 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself;
I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
10:2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; show me wherefore you contend with me.
10:3 Is it good unto you that you should oppress, that you should despise the work of your hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
10:4 Have you eyes of flesh? or see you as man sees?
10:5 Are your days as the days of man? are your years as man's days,
10:6 That you enquire after mine iniquity, and search after my sin?
10:7 You know that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of your hand.
10:8 your hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet you do destroy me.
10:9 Remember, I plead to you, that you have made me as the clay; and will you bring me into dust again?
10:10 Have you not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?
10:11 You have clothed me with skin and flesh, and have fenced me with bones and sinews.
10:12 You have granted me life and favour, and your visitation has preserved my spirit.
10:13 And these things have you hid in your heart: I know that this is with you.
10:14 If I sin, then you mark me, and you will not acquit me from mine iniquity.
10:15 If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see you mine affliction;
10:16 For it increases. You hunt me as a fierce lion: and again you show yourself marvellous upon me.
10:17 You renew your witnesses against me, and increase your indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.
10:18 Wherefore then have you brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the spirit, and no eye had seen me!
10:19 I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.
10:20 Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,
10:21 Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;
10:22 A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.
