Job 14
Berean Study BibleHebrew Study Bible
1“Man, who is born of woman, is short of days and full of trouble.1אָ֭דָם יְל֣וּד אִשָּׁ֑ה קְצַ֥ר יָ֝מִ֗ים וּֽשְׂבַֽע־ רֹֽגֶז׃
2Like a flower, he comes forth, then withers away; like a fleeting shadow, he does not endure.2כְּצִ֣יץ יָ֭צָא וַיִּמָּ֑ל וַיִּבְרַ֥ח כַּ֝צֵּ֗ל וְלֹ֣א יַעֲמֽוֹד׃
3Do You open Your eyes to one like this? Will You bring him into judgment before You?3אַף־ עַל־ זֶ֭ה פָּקַ֣חְתָּ עֵינֶ֑ךָ וְאֹ֘תִ֤י תָבִ֖יא בְמִשְׁפָּ֣ט עִמָּֽךְ׃
4Who can bring out clean from unclean? No one!4מִֽי־ יִתֵּ֣ן טָ֭הוֹר מִטָּמֵ֗א לֹ֣א אֶחָֽד׃
5Since his days are determined and the number of his months is with You, and since You have set limits that he cannot exceed,5אִ֥ם חֲרוּצִ֨ים ׀ יָמָ֗יו מִֽסְפַּר־ חֳדָשָׁ֥יו אִתָּ֑ךְ [חקו] (חֻקָּ֥יו) עָ֝שִׂ֗יתָ וְלֹ֣א יַעֲבֽוֹר׃
6look away from him and let him rest, so he can enjoy his day as a hired hand.6שְׁעֵ֣ה מֵעָלָ֣יו וְיֶחְדָּ֑ל עַד־ יִ֝רְצֶ֗ה כְּשָׂכִ֥יר יוֹמֽוֹ׃
7For there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its tender shoots will not fail.7כִּ֤י יֵ֥שׁ לָעֵ֗ץ תִּ֫קְוָ֥ה אִֽם־ יִ֭כָּרֵת וְע֣וֹד יַחֲלִ֑יף וְ֝יֹֽנַקְתּ֗וֹ לֹ֣א תֶחְדָּֽל׃
8If its roots grow old in the ground and its stump dies in the soil,8אִם־ יַזְקִ֣ין בָּאָ֣רֶץ שָׁרְשׁ֑וֹ וּ֝בֶעָפָ֗ר יָמ֥וּת גִּזְעֽוֹ׃
9at the scent of water it will bud and put forth twigs like a sapling.9מֵרֵ֣יחַ מַ֣יִם יַפְרִ֑חַ וְעָשָׂ֖ה קָצִ֣יר כְּמוֹ־ נָֽטַע׃
10But a man dies and is laid low; he breathes his last, and where is he?10וְגֶ֣בֶר יָ֭מוּת וַֽיֶּחֱלָ֑שׁ וַיִּגְוַ֖ע אָדָ֣ם וְאַיּֽוֹ׃
11As water disappears from the sea and a river becomes parched and dry,11אָֽזְלוּ־ מַ֭יִם מִנִּי־ יָ֑ם וְ֝נָהָ֗ר יֶחֱרַ֥ב וְיָבֵֽשׁ׃
12so a man lies down and does not rise. Until the heavens are no more, he will not be awakened or roused from sleep.12וְאִ֥ישׁ שָׁכַ֗ב וְֽלֹא־ יָ֫ק֥וּם עַד־ בִּלְתִּ֣י שָׁ֭מַיִם לֹ֣א יָקִ֑יצוּ וְלֹֽא־ יֵ֝עֹ֗רוּ מִשְּׁנָתָֽם׃
13If only You would hide me in Sheol and conceal me until Your anger has passed! If only You would appoint a time for me and then remember me!13מִ֤י יִתֵּ֨ן ׀ בִּשְׁא֬וֹל תַּצְפִּנֵ֗נִי תַּ֭סְתִּירֵנִי עַד־ שׁ֣וּב אַפֶּ֑ךָ תָּ֤שִׁ֥ית לִ֖י חֹ֣ק וְתִזְכְּרֵֽנִי׃
14When a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, until my renewal comes.14אִם־ יָמ֥וּת גֶּ֗בֶר הֲיִ֫חְיֶ֥ה כָּל־ יְמֵ֣י צְבָאִ֣י אֲיַחֵ֑ל עַד־ בּ֝֗וֹא חֲלִיפָתִֽי׃
15You will call, and I will answer; You will desire the work of Your hands.15תִּ֭קְרָא וְאָנֹכִ֣י אֶֽעֱנֶ֑ךָּ לְֽמַעֲשֵׂ֖ה יָדֶ֣יךָ תִכְסֹֽף׃
16For then You would count my steps, but would not keep track of my sin.16כִּֽי־ עַ֭תָּה צְעָדַ֣י תִּסְפּ֑וֹר לֹֽא־ תִ֝שְׁמ֗וֹר עַל־ חַטָּאתִֽי׃
17My transgression would be sealed in a bag, and You would cover over my iniquity.17חָתֻ֣ם בִּצְר֣וֹר פִּשְׁעִ֑י וַ֝תִּטְפֹּ֗ל עַל־ עֲוֺנִֽי׃
18But as a mountain erodes and crumbles and a rock is dislodged from its place,18וְ֭אוּלָם הַר־ נוֹפֵ֣ל יִבּ֑וֹל וְ֝צ֗וּר יֶעְתַּ֥ק מִמְּקֹמֽוֹ׃
19as water wears away the stones and torrents wash away the soil, so You destroy a man’s hope.19אֲבָנִ֤ים ׀ שָׁ֥חֲקוּ מַ֗יִם תִּשְׁטֹֽף־ סְפִיחֶ֥יהָ עֲפַר־ אָ֑רֶץ וְתִקְוַ֖ת אֱנ֣וֹשׁ הֶאֱבַֽדְתָּ׃
20You forever overpower him, and he passes on; You change his countenance and send him away.20תִּתְקְפֵ֣הוּ לָ֭נֶצַח וַֽיַּהֲלֹ֑ךְ מְשַׁנֶּ֥ה פָ֝נָ֗יו וַֽתְּשַׁלְּחֵֽהוּ׃
21If his sons receive honor, he does not know it; if they are brought low, he is unaware.21יִכְבְּד֣וּ בָ֭נָיו וְלֹ֣א יֵדָ֑ע וְ֝יִצְעֲר֗וּ וְֽלֹא־ יָבִ֥ין לָֽמוֹ׃
22He feels only the pain of his own body and mourns only for himself.”22אַךְ־ בְּ֭שָׂרוֹ עָלָ֣יו יִכְאָ֑ב וְ֝נַפְשׁ֗וֹ עָלָ֥יו תֶּאֱבָֽל׃ פ
