New International Version
You will call and I will answer you; you will long for the creature your hands have made.
King James Bible
Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.
Darby Bible Translation
Thou wouldest call, and I would answer thee; thou wouldest have a desire after the work of thy hands.
World English Bible
You would call, and I would answer you. You would have a desire to the work of your hands.
Young's Literal Translation
Thou dost call, and I -- I answer Thee; To the work of Thy hands Thou hast desire.
Job 14:15 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou shalt call - Thou shalt say There shall be time no longer: Awake, ye dead! and come to judgment!
And I will answer thee - My dissolved frame shall be united at thy call; and body and soul shall be rejoined.
Thou wilt have a desire - תכסף tichsoph, "Thou wilt pant with desire;" or, "Thou wilt yearn over the work of thy hands." God has subjected the creature to vanity, in hope; having determined the resurrection. Man is one of the noblest works of God. He has exhibited him as a master-piece of his creative skill, power, and goodness. Nothing less than the strongest call upon justice could have induced him thus to destroy the work of his hands. No wonder that he has an earnest desire towards it; and that although man dies, and is as water spilt upon the ground that cannot be gathered up again; yet doth he devise means that his banished be not expelled from him. Even God is represented as earnestly longing for the ultimate reviviscence of the sleeping dust. He cannot, he will not, forget the work of his hands.

Dead in trespasses and sins; . . . by nature the children of wrath, even as others.--I am carnal, sold under sin. That which I do I allow not; for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing. By one man sin entered into the world, . . . by one man's …

Job's Question, Jesus' Answer
Whether There is to be a Resurrection of the Body?
Whether the Time of Our Resurrection Should be Delayed Till the End of the World?
Does it please you to oppress me, to spurn the work of your hands, while you smile on the plans of the wicked?
Then summon me and I will answer, or let me speak, and you reply to me.
If someone dies, will they live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait for my renewal to come.
The LORD will vindicate me; your love, LORD, endures forever-- do not abandon the works of your hands.
