Job 14 (WEBP)

[1] “Man, who is born of a woman, is of few days, and full of trouble.
[2] He grows up like a flower, and is cut down. He also flees like a shadow, and doesn’t continue.
[3] Do you open your eyes on such a one, and bring me into judgment with you?
[4] Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one.
[5] Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months is with you, and you have appointed his bounds that he can’t pass.
[6] Look away from him, that he may rest, until he accomplishes, as a hireling, his day.
[7] “For there is hope for a tree if it is cut down, that it will sprout again, that the tender branch of it will not cease.
[8] Though its root grows old in the earth, and its stock dies in the ground,
[9] yet through the scent of water it will bud, and sprout boughs like a plant.
[10] But man dies, and is laid low. Yes, man gives up the spirit, and where is he?
[11] As the waters fail from the sea, and the river wastes and dries up,
[12] so man lies down and doesn’t rise. Until the heavens are no more, they will not awake, nor be roused out of their sleep.
[13] “Oh that you would hide me in Sheol,° that you would keep me secret until your wrath is past, that you would appoint me a set time and remember me!
[14] If a man dies, will he live again? I would wait all the days of my warfare, until my release should come.
[15] You would call, and I would answer you. You would have a desire for the work of your hands.
[16] But now you count my steps. Don’t you watch over my sin?
[17] My disobedience is sealed up in a bag. You fasten up my iniquity.
[18] “But the mountain falling comes to nothing. The rock is removed out of its place.
[19] The waters wear the stones. The torrents of it wash away the dust of the earth. So you destroy the hope of man.
[20] You forever prevail against him, and he departs. You change his face, and send him away.
[21] His sons come to honor, and he doesn’t know it. They are brought low, but he doesn’t perceive it of them.
[22] But his flesh on him has pain, and his soul within him mourns.”

Job 14:13 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Job 14 (KJVS)

[1] Man H120 [that is] born H3205 (8803) of a woman H802 [is] of few H7116 days H3117, and full H7649 of trouble H7267.
[2] He cometh forth H3318 (8804) like a flower H6731, and is cut down H5243 (8799): he fleeth H1272 (8799) also as a shadow H6738, and continueth H5975 (8799) not.
[3] And dost thou open H6491 (8804) thine eyes H5869 upon such an one H2088, and bringest H935 (8686) me into judgment H4941 with thee?
[4] Who can bring H5414 (8799) a clean H2889 [thing] out of an unclean H2931? not one H259.
[5] Seeing H518 his days H3117 [are] determined H2782 (8803), the number H4557 of his months H2320 [are] with thee, thou hast appointed H6213 (8804) his bounds H2706 that he cannot pass H5674 (8799);
[6] Turn H8159 (8798) from him, that he may rest H2308 (8799), till he shall accomplish H7521 (8799), as an hireling H7916, his day H3117.
[7] For there is H3426 hope H8615 of a tree H6086, if it be cut down H3772 (8735), that it will sprout again H2498 (8686), and that the tender branch H3127 thereof will not cease H2308 (8799).
[8] Though the root H8328 thereof wax old H2204 (8686) in the earth H776, and the stock H1503 thereof die H4191 (8799) in the ground H6083;
[9] [Yet] through the scent H7381 of water H4325 it will bud H6524 (8686), and bring forth H6213 (8804) boughs H7105 like a plant H5194.
[10] But man H1397 dieth H4191 (8799), and wasteth away H2522 (8799): yea, man H120 giveth up the ghost H1478 (8799), and where [is] he?
[11] [As] the waters H4325 fail H235 (8804) from the sea H3220, and the flood H5104 decayeth H2717 (8799) and drieth up H3001 (8804):
[12] So man H376 lieth down H7901 (8804), and riseth H6965 (8799) not: till the heavens H8064 [be] no more H1115, they shall not awake H6974 (8686), nor be raised out H5782 (8735) of their sleep H8142.
[13] O that H5414 (8799) thou wouldest hide H6845 (8686) me in the grave H7585, that thou wouldest keep me secret H5641 (8686), until thy wrath H639 be past H7725 (8800), that thou wouldest appoint H7896 (8799) me a set time H2706, and remember H2142 (8799) me!
[14] If a man H1397 die H4191 (8799), shall he live H2421 (8799) [again]? all the days H3117 of my appointed time H6635 will I wait H3176 (8762), till my change H2487 come H935 (8800).
[15] Thou shalt call H7121 (8799), and I will answer H6030 (8799) thee: thou wilt have a desire H3700 (8799) to the work H4639 of thine hands H3027.
[16] For now thou numberest H5608 (8799) my steps H6806: dost thou not watch H8104 (8799) over my sin H2403?
[17] My transgression H6588 [is] sealed up H2856 (8803) in a bag H6872, and thou sewest up H2950 (8799) mine iniquity H5771.
[18] And surely H199 the mountain H2022 falling H5307 (8802) cometh to nought H5034 (8799), and the rock H6697 is removed H6275 (8799) out of his place H4725.
[19] The waters H4325 wear H7833 (8804) the stones H68: thou washest away H7857 (8799) the things which grow H5599 [out] of the dust H6083 of the earth H776; and thou destroyest H6 (8689) the hope H8615 of man H582.
[20] Thou prevailest H8630 (8799) for ever H5331 against him, and he passeth H1980 (8799): thou changest H8138 (8764) his countenance H6440, and sendest him away H7971 (8762).
[21] His sons H1121 come to honour H3513 (8799), and he knoweth H3045 (8799) [it] not; and they are brought low H6819 (8799), but he perceiveth H995 (8799) [it] not of them.
[22] But his flesh H1320 upon him shall have pain H3510 (8799), and his soul H5315 within him shall mourn H56 (8799).

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 14 (YLT)

[1] Man, born of woman! Of few days, and full of trouble!
[2] As a flower he hath gone forth, and is cut off, And he fleeth as a shadow and standeth not.
[3] Also-on this Thou hast opened Thine eyes, And dost bring me into judgment with Thee.
[4] Who giveth a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.
[5] If determined are his days, The number of his months are with Thee, His limit Thou hast made, And he passeth not over;
[6] Look away from off him that he may cease, Till he enjoy as an hireling his day.
[7] For there is of a tree hope, if it be cut down, That again it doth change, That its tender branch doth not cease.
[8] If its root becometh old in the earth, And its stem doth die in the dust,
[9] From the fragrance of water it doth flourish, And hath made a crop as a plant.
[10] And a man dieth, and becometh weak, And man expireth, and where is he?
[11] Waters have gone away from a sea, And a river becometh waste and dry.
[12] And man hath lain down, and riseth not, Till the wearing out of the heavens they awake not, Nor are roused from their sleep.
[13] O that in Sheol Thou wouldest conceal me, Hide me till the turning of Thine anger, Set for me a limit, and remember me.
[14] If a man dieth-doth he revive? All days of my warfare I wait, till my change come.
[15] Thou dost call, and I-I answer Thee; To the work of Thy hands Thou hast desire.
[16] But now, my steps Thou numberest, Thou dost not watch over my sin.
[17] Sealed up in a bag is my transgression, And Thou sewest up mine iniquity.
[18] And yet, a falling mountain wasteth away, And a rock is removed from its place.
[19] Stones have waters worn away, Their outpourings wash away the dust of earth, And the hope of man Thou hast destroyed.
[20] Thou prevailest over him for ever, and he goeth, He is changing his countenance, And Thou sendest him away.
[21] Honoured are his sons, and he knoweth not; And they are little, and he attendeth not to them.
[22] Only-his flesh for him is pained, And his soul for him doth mourn.’
