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 [that is] born () of a woman [is] of few days , and full of trouble .
[2] He cometh forth () like a flower , and is cut down (): he fleeth () also as a shadow , and continueth () not.
[3] And dost thou open () thine eyes upon such an one , and bringest () me into judgment with thee?
[4] Who can bring () a clean [thing] out of an unclean ? not one .
[5] Seeing his days [are] determined (), the number of his months [are] with thee, thou hast appointed () his bounds that he cannot pass ();
[6] Turn () from him, that he may rest (), till he shall accomplish (), as an hireling , his day .
[7] For there is hope of a tree , if it be cut down (), that it will sprout again (), and that the tender branch thereof will not cease ().
[8] Though the root thereof wax old () in the earth , and the stock thereof die () in the ground ;
[9] [Yet] through the scent of water it will bud (), and bring forth () boughs like a plant .
[10] But man dieth (), and wasteth away (): yea, man giveth up the ghost (), and where [is] he?
[11] [As] the waters fail () from the sea , and the flood decayeth () and drieth up ():
[12] So man lieth down (), and riseth () not: till the heavens [be] no more , they shall not awake (), nor be raised out () of their sleep .
[13] O that () thou wouldest hide () me in the grave , that thou wouldest keep me secret (), until thy wrath be past (), that thou wouldest appoint () me a set time , and remember () me!
[14] If a man die (), shall he live () [again]? all the days of my appointed time will I wait (), till my change come ().
[15] Thou shalt call (), and I will answer () thee: thou wilt have a desire () to the work of thine hands .
[16] For now thou numberest () my steps : dost thou not watch () over my sin ?
[17] My transgression [is] sealed up () in a bag , and thou sewest up () mine iniquity .
[18] And surely the mountain falling () cometh to nought (), and the rock is removed () out of his place .
[19] The waters wear () the stones : thou washest away () the things which grow [out] of the dust of the earth ; and thou destroyest () the hope of man .
[20] Thou prevailest () for ever against him, and he passeth (): thou changest () his countenance , and sendest him away ().
[21] His sons come to honour (), and he knoweth () [it] not; and they are brought low (), but he perceiveth () [it] not of them.
[22] But his flesh upon him shall have pain (), and his soul within him shall mourn ().

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.’
