Job 17 (WEBP)

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

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 17 (KJVS)

[1] My breath H7307 is corrupt H2254 (8795), my days H3117 are extinct H2193 (8738), the graves H6913 [are ready] for me.
[2] [Are there] not mockers H2049 with me? and doth not mine eye H5869 continue H3885 (8799) in their provocation H4784 (8687)?
[3] 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?
[4] For thou hast hid H6845 (8804) their heart H3820 from understanding H7922: therefore shalt thou not exalt H7311 (8787) [them].
[5] He that speaketh H5046 (8686) flattery H2506 to [his] friends H7453, even the eyes H5869 of his children H1121 shall fail H3615 (8799).
[6] He hath made H3322 (8689) me also a byword H4914 of the people H5971; and aforetime H6440 I was as a tabret H8611.
[7] Mine eye H5869 also is dim H3543 (8799) by reason of sorrow H3708, and all my members H3338 [are] as a shadow H6738.
[8] Upright H3477 [men] shall be astonied H8074 (8799) at this, and the innocent H5355 shall stir up H5782 (8709) himself against the hypocrite H2611.
[9] 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.
[10] 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.
[11] My days H3117 are past H5674 (8804), my purposes H2154 are broken off H5423 (8738), [even] the thoughts H4180 of my heart H3824.
[12] They change H7760 (8799) the night H3915 into day H3117: the light H216 [is] short H7138 because H6440 of darkness H2822.
[13] If I wait H6960 (8762), the grave H7585 [is] mine house H1004: I have made H7502 (8765) my bed H3326 in the darkness H2822.
[14] 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.
[15] And where [is] now H645 my hope H8615? as for my hope H8615, who shall see H7789 (8799) it?
[16] 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)

[1] My spirit hath been destroyed, My days extinguished-graves are for me.
[2] If not-mockeries are with me. And in their provocations mine eye lodgeth.
[3] Place, I pray Thee, my pledge with Thee; Who is he that striketh hand with me?
[4] For their heart Thou hast hidden From understanding, Therefore Thou dost not exalt them.
[5] For a portion he sheweth friendship, And the eyes of his sons are consumed.
[6] And he set me up for a proverb of the peoples, And a wonder before them I am.
[7] And dim from sorrow is mine eye, And my members as a shadow all of them.
[8] Astonished are the upright at this, And the innocent against the profane Stirreth himself up.
[9] And the righteous layeth hold on his way, And the clean of hands addeth strength, And-dumb are they all.
[10] Return, and come in, I pray you, And I find not among you a wise man.
[11] My days have passed by, My devices have been broken off, The possessions of my heart!
[12] Night for day they appoint, Light is near because of darkness.
[13] If I wait-Sheol is my house, In darkness I have spread out my couch.
[14] To corruption I have called:- ‘Thou art my father.’ ‘My mother’ and ‘my sister?’-to the worm.
[15] And where is now my hope? Yea, my hope, who doth behold it?
[16] To the parts of Sheol ye go down, If together on the dust we may rest.
