Job 10 (WEBP)

[1] “My soul is weary of my life. I will give free course to my complaint. I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
[2] I will tell God, ‘Do not condemn me. Show me why you contend with me.
[3] Is it good to you that you should oppress, that you should despise the work of your hands, and smile on the counsel of the wicked?
[4] Do you have eyes of flesh? Or do you see as man sees?
[5] Are your days as the days of mortals, or your years as man’s years,
[6] that you inquire after my iniquity, and search after my sin?
[7] Although you know that I am not wicked, there is no one who can deliver out of your hand.
[8] “ ‘Your hands have framed me and fashioned me altogether, yet you destroy me.
[9] Remember, I beg you, that you have fashioned me as clay. Will you bring me into dust again?
[10] Haven’t you poured me out like milk, and curdled me like cheese?
[11] You have clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews.
[12] You have granted me life and loving kindness. Your visitation has preserved my spirit.
[13] Yet you hid these things in your heart. I know that this is with you:
[14] if I sin, then you mark me. You will not acquit me from my iniquity.
[15] If I am wicked, woe to me. If I am righteous, I still will not lift up my head, being filled with disgrace, and conscious of my affliction.
[16] If my head is held high, you hunt me like a lion. Again you show yourself powerful to me.
[17] You renew your witnesses against me, and increase your indignation on me. Changes and warfare are with me.
[18] “ ‘Why, then, have you brought me out of the womb? I wish I had given up the spirit, and no eye had seen me.
[19] I should have been as though I had not been. I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.
[20] Aren’t my days few? Stop! Leave me alone, that I may find a little comfort,
[21] before I go where I will not return from, to the land of darkness and of the shadow of death;
[22] the land dark as midnight, of the shadow of death, without any order, where the light is as midnight.’ ”

Job 10 (KJVS)

[1] My soul is weary () of my life ; I will leave () my complaint upon myself; I will speak () in the bitterness of my soul .
[2] I will say () unto God , Do not condemn () me; shew () me wherefore thou contendest () with me.
[3] [Is it] good () unto thee that thou shouldest oppress (), that thou shouldest despise () the work of thine hands , and shine () upon the counsel of the wicked ?
[4] Hast thou eyes of flesh ? or seest () thou as man seeth ()?
[5] [Are] thy days as the days of man ? [are] thy years as man’s days ,
[6] That thou enquirest () after mine iniquity , and searchest () after my sin ?
[7] Thou knowest that I am not wicked (); and [there is] none that can deliver () out of thine hand .
[8] Thine hands have made () me and fashioned () me together round about ; yet thou dost destroy () me.
[9] Remember (), I beseech thee, that thou hast made () me as the clay ; and wilt thou bring me into dust again ()?
[10] Hast thou not poured me out () as milk , and curdled () me like cheese ?
[11] Thou hast clothed () me with skin and flesh , and hast fenced () me with bones and sinews .
[12] Thou hast granted () me life and favour , and thy visitation hath preserved () my spirit .
[13] And these [things] hast thou hid () in thine heart : I know () that this [is] with thee.
[14] If I sin (), then thou markest () me, and thou wilt not acquit () me from mine iniquity .
[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 () (8676) () thou mine affliction ;
[16] For it increaseth (). Thou huntest () me as a fierce lion : and again () thou shewest thyself marvellous () upon me.
[17] Thou renewest () thy witnesses against me, and increasest () thine indignation upon me ; changes and war [are] against me.
[18] Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth () out of the womb ? Oh that I had given up the ghost (), and no eye had seen () me!
[19] I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried () from the womb to the grave .
[20] [Are] not my days few ? cease () (8675) () [then, and] let me alone () (8675) (), that I may take comfort () a little ,
[21] Before I go () [whence] I shall not return (), [even] to the land of darkness and the shadow of death ;
[22] A land of darkness , as darkness [itself; and] of the shadow of death , without any order , and [where] the light () [is] as darkness .

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 10 (YLT)

[1] My soul hath been weary of my life, I leave off my talking to myself, I speak in the bitterness of my soul.
[2] I say unto God, ‘Do not condemn me, Let me know why Thou dost strive with me.
[3] Is it good for Thee that Thou dost oppress? That Thou despisest the labour of Thy hands, And on the counsel of the wicked hast shone?
[4] Eyes of flesh hast Thou? As man seeth-seest Thou?
[5] As the days of man are Thy days? Thy years as the days of a man?
[6] That Thou inquirest for mine iniquity, And for my sin seekest?
[7] For Thou knowest that I am not wicked, And there is no deliverer from Thy hand.
[8] Thy hands have taken pains about me, And they make me together round about, And Thou swallowest me up!
[9] Remember, I pray Thee, That as clay Thou hast made me, And unto dust Thou dost bring me back.
[10] Dost Thou not as milk pour me out? And as cheese curdle me?
[11] Skin and flesh Thou dost put on me, And with bones and sinews dost fence me.
[12] Life and kindness Thou hast done with me. And Thy inspection hath preserved my spirit.
[13] And these Thou hast laid up in Thy heart, I have known that this is with Thee.
[14] If I sinned, then Thou hast observed me, And from mine iniquity dost not acquit me,
[15] If I have done wickedly-woe to me, And righteously-I lift not up my head, Full of shame-then see my affliction,
[16] And it riseth-as a lion Thou huntest me. And Thou turnest back- Thou shewest Thyself wonderful in me.
[17] Thou renewest Thy witnesses against me, And dost multiply Thine anger with me, Changes and warfare are with me.
[18] And why from the womb Hast Thou brought me forth? I expire, and the eye doth not see me.
[19] As I had not been, I am, From the belly to the grave I am brought,
[20] Are not my days few? Cease then, and put from me, And I brighten up a little,
[21] Before I go, and return not, Unto a land of darkness and death-shade,
[22] A land of obscurity as thick darkness, Death-shade-and no order, And the shining is as thick darkness.’
