New International Version
No mortal comprehends its worth; it cannot be found in the land of the living.

Darby Bible Translation
Man knoweth not the value thereof; and it is not found in the land of the living.
World English Bible
Man doesn't know its price; Neither is it found in the land of the living.
Young's Literal Translation
Man hath not known its arrangement, Nor is it found in the land of the living.
Job 28:13 Parallel
