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.’ ”

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 10 (KJVS)

[1] My soul H5315 is weary H5354 (8804) of my life H2416; I will leave H5800 (8799) my complaint H7879 upon myself; I will speak H1696 (8762) in the bitterness H4751 of my soul H5315.
[2] I will say H559 (8799) unto God H433, Do not condemn H7561 (8686) me; shew H3045 (8685) me wherefore thou contendest H7378 (8799) with me.
[3] [Is it] good H2895 (8804) unto thee that thou shouldest oppress H6231 (8799), that thou shouldest despise H3988 (8799) the work H3018 of thine hands H3709, and shine H3313 (8689) upon the counsel H6098 of the wicked H7563?
[4] Hast thou eyes H5869 of flesh H1320? or seest H7200 (8799) thou as man H582 seeth H7200 (8800)?
[5] [Are] thy days H3117 as the days H3117 of man H582? [are] thy years H8141 as man’s H1397 days H3117,
[6] That thou enquirest H1245 (8762) after mine iniquity H5771, and searchest H1875 (8799) after my sin H2403?
[7] Thou knowest H1847 that I am not wicked H7561 (8799); and [there is] none that can deliver H5337 (8688) out of thine hand H3027.
[8] Thine hands H3027 have made H6087 (8765) me and fashioned H6213 (8799) me together H3162 round about H5439; yet thou dost destroy H1104 (8762) me.
[9] Remember H2142 (8798), I beseech thee, that thou hast made H6213 (8804) me as the clay H2563; and wilt thou bring H7725 me into dust H6083 again H7725 (8686)?
[10] Hast thou not poured me out H5413 (8686) as milk H2461, and curdled H7087 (8686) me like cheese H1385?
[11] Thou hast clothed H3847 (8686) me with skin H5785 and flesh H1320, and hast fenced H7753 (8787) me with bones H6106 and sinews H1517.
[12] Thou hast granted H6213 (8804) me life H2416 and favour H2617, and thy visitation H6486 hath preserved H8104 (8804) my spirit H7307.
[13] And these [things] hast thou hid H6845 (8804) in thine heart H3824: I know H3045 (8804) that this [is] with thee.
[14] If I sin H2398 (8804), then thou markest H8104 (8804) me, and thou wilt not acquit H5352 (8762) me from mine iniquity H5771.
[15] If I be wicked H7561 (8804), woe H480 unto me; and [if] I be righteous H6663 (8804), [yet] will I not lift up H5375 (8799) my head H7218. [I am] full H7649 of confusion H7036; therefore see H7202 (8798) (8676) H7200 (8798) thou mine affliction H6040;
[16] For it increaseth H1342 (8799). Thou huntest H6679 (8799) me as a fierce lion H7826: and again H7725 (8799) thou shewest thyself marvellous H6381 (8691) upon me.
[17] Thou renewest H2318 (8762) thy witnesses H5707 against me, and increasest H7235 (8686) thine indignation H3708 upon me H5978; changes H2487 and war H6635 [are] against me.
[18] Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth H3318 (8689) out of the womb H7358? Oh that I had given up the ghost H1478 (8799), and no eye H5869 had seen H7200 (8799) me!
[19] I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried H2986 (8714) from the womb H990 to the grave H6913.
[20] [Are] not my days H3117 few H4592? cease H2308 (8798) (8675) H2308 (8799) [then, and] let me alone H7896 (8798) (8675) H7896 (8799), that I may take comfort H1082 (8686) a little H4592,
[21] Before I go H3212 (8799) [whence] I shall not return H7725 (8799), [even] to the land H776 of darkness H2822 and the shadow of death H6757;
[22] A land H776 of darkness H5890, as darkness H652 [itself; and] of the shadow of death H6757, without any order H5468, and [where] the light H3313 (8686) [is] as darkness H652.

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.’
