Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Job Laments the Finality of Death

1Man being born of woman is short of days and full of disquiet.

2And as a flower he will come forth, and will be cut down: and he will flee as a shadow, and shall not stand.

3Also upon this one didst thou open thine eyes? and wilt thou bring Me into judgment with thee?

4For who shall give a clean thing from an unclean? Not one.

5If his days are determined, the number of his months with thee; thou madest his limit; he shall not pass over.

6Look away from him and be shall cease, till he shall delight as an hireling in his day.

7For there is hope for a tree if it shall be cut down, and it shall yet revive, and its suckers shall not cease.

8If its root shall grow old in the earth, and its trunk shall die in the dust.

9From the smell of water it will break forth, and make foliage as a plant.

10And man will die and be weak: and man will expire, and where is he?

11The waters departed from the sea, and the river will be wasted and dried up;

12And man lay down and he will not rise: till the heavens be no more they shall not awake and rise from their sleep.

13Who will give thou wilt hide me in hades? wilt thou cover me till the turning away of thine anger? wilt thou set for me a limit, and wilt thou remember me?

14If a man die, shall he live? All the days of my warfare I will wait till the coming of my change.

15Thou shalt call and I will answer thee: thou wilt long for the work of thy hands.

16For now thou wilt count my steps: wilt thou not watch over my sin?

17My transgression is sealed up in a purse, and thou wilt patch upon mine iniquity.

18And yet the mountain falling shill decay, and the rock shall be removed from its place.

19The waters rubbed the stones: thou wilt overflow the flowings of the dust of the earth; and thou didst destroy the hope of man.

20Thou wilt overpower him forever, and he will go away: changing his face, thou wilt send him away.

21His sons will be honored and he knew not: they will be brought low, and he will not understand for them.

22But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul upon him shall mourn.
