Job 17 (WEBP)
 “My spirit is consumed. My days are extinct and the grave is ready for me.
 Surely there are mockers with me. My eye dwells on their provocation.
 “Now give a pledge. Be collateral for me with yourself. Who is there who will strike hands with me?
 For you have hidden their heart from understanding, therefore you will not exalt them.
 He who denounces his friends for plunder, even the eyes of his children will fail.
 “But he has made me a byword of the people. They spit in my face.
 My eye also is dim by reason of sorrow. All my members are as a shadow.
 Upright men will be astonished at this. The innocent will stir himself up against the godless.
 Yet the righteous will hold to his way. He who has clean hands will grow stronger and stronger.
 But as for you all, come back. I will not find a wise man among you.
 My days are past. My plans are broken off, as are the thoughts of my heart.
 They change the night into day, saying ‘The light is near’ in the presence of darkness.
 If I look for Sheol° as my house, if I have spread my couch in the darkness,
 if I have said to corruption, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ and ‘My sister,’
 where then is my hope? As for my hope, who will see it?
 Shall it go down with me to the gates of Sheol,° or descend together into the dust?”
Job 17:13 Sheol is the place of the dead.
Job 17:16 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Job 17 (KJVS)
 My breath H7307 is corrupt H2254 (8795), my days H3117 are extinct H2193 (8738), the graves H6913 [are ready] for me.
 [Are there] not mockers H2049 with me? and doth not mine eye H5869 continue H3885 (8799) in their provocation H4784 (8687)?
 Lay down H7760 (8798) now, put me in a surety H6148 (8798) with thee; who [is] he [that] will strike H8628 (8735) hands H3027 with me?
 For thou hast hid H6845 (8804) their heart H3820 from understanding H7922: therefore shalt thou not exalt H7311 (8787) [them].
 He that speaketh H5046 (8686) flattery H2506 to [his] friends H7453, even the eyes H5869 of his children H1121 shall fail H3615 (8799).
 He hath made H3322 (8689) me also a byword H4914 of the people H5971; and aforetime H6440 I was as a tabret H8611.
 Mine eye H5869 also is dim H3543 (8799) by reason of sorrow H3708, and all my members H3338 [are] as a shadow H6738.
 Upright H3477 [men] shall be astonied H8074 (8799) at this, and the innocent H5355 shall stir up H5782 (8709) himself against the hypocrite H2611.
 The righteous H6662 also shall hold H270 (8799) on his way H1870, and he that hath clean H2890 hands H3027 shall be H3254 (8686) stronger and stronger H555.
 But H199 as for you all, do ye return H7725 (8799), and come now H935 (8798): for I cannot find H4672 (8799) [one] wise H2450 [man] among you.
 My days H3117 are past H5674 (8804), my purposes H2154 are broken off H5423 (8738), [even] the thoughts H4180 of my heart H3824.
 They change H7760 (8799) the night H3915 into day H3117: the light H216 [is] short H7138 because H6440 of darkness H2822.
 If I wait H6960 (8762), the grave H7585 [is] mine house H1004: I have made H7502 (8765) my bed H3326 in the darkness H2822.
 I have said H7121 (8804) to corruption H7845, Thou [art] my father H1: to the worm H7415, [Thou art] my mother H517, and my sister H269.
 And where [is] now H645 my hope H8615? as for my hope H8615, who shall see H7789 (8799) it?
 They shall go down H3381 (8799) to the bars H905 of the pit H7585, when [our] rest H5183 together H3162 [is] in the dust H6083.
Young’s Literal Translation
Job 17 (YLT)
 My spirit hath been destroyed, My days extinguished-graves are for me.
 If not-mockeries are with me. And in their provocations mine eye lodgeth.
 Place, I pray Thee, my pledge with Thee; Who is he that striketh hand with me?
 For their heart Thou hast hidden From understanding, Therefore Thou dost not exalt them.
 For a portion he sheweth friendship, And the eyes of his sons are consumed.
 And he set me up for a proverb of the peoples, And a wonder before them I am.
 And dim from sorrow is mine eye, And my members as a shadow all of them.
 Astonished are the upright at this, And the innocent against the profane Stirreth himself up.
 And the righteous layeth hold on his way, And the clean of hands addeth strength, And-dumb are they all.
 Return, and come in, I pray you, And I find not among you a wise man.
 My days have passed by, My devices have been broken off, The possessions of my heart!
 Night for day they appoint, Light is near because of darkness.
 If I wait-Sheol is my house, In darkness I have spread out my couch.
 To corruption I have called:- ‘Thou art my father.’ ‘My mother’ and ‘my sister?’-to the worm.
 And where is now my hope? Yea, my hope, who doth behold it?
 To the parts of Sheol ye go down, If together on the dust we may rest.
