Chapter 14

JOB.14:1 “Man who is born of woman Is of few days and full of trouble.
JOB.14:2 He comes forth like a flower and fades away; He flees like a shadow and does not continue.
JOB.14:3 And do You open Your eyes on such a one, And bring me to judgment with Yourself?
JOB.14:4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? No one!
JOB.14:5 Since his days are determined, The number of his months is with You; You have appointed his limits, so that he cannot pass.
JOB.14:6 Look away from him that he may rest, Till like a hired man he finishes his day.
JOB.14:7 “For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And that its tender shoots will not cease.
JOB.14:8 Though its root may grow old in the earth, And its stump may die in the ground,
JOB.14:9 Yet at the scent of water it will bud And bring forth branches like a plant.
JOB.14:10 But man dies and is laid away; Indeed he breathes his last And where is he?
JOB.14:11 As water disappears from the sea, And a river becomes parched and dries up,
JOB.14:12 So man lies down and does not rise. Till the heavens are no more, They will not awake Nor be roused from their sleep.
JOB.14:13 “Oh, that You would hide me in the grave, That You would conceal me until Your wrath is past, That You would appoint me a set time, and remember me!
JOB.14:14 If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, Till my change comes.
JOB.14:15 You shall call, and I will answer You; You shall desire the work of Your hands.
JOB.14:16 For now You number my steps, But do not watch over my sin.
JOB.14:17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, And You cover my iniquity.
JOB.14:18 “But as a mountain falls and crumbles away, And as a rock is moved from its place;
JOB.14:19 As water wears away stones, And as torrents wash away the soil of the earth; So You destroy the hope of man.
JOB.14:20 You prevail forever against him, and he passes on; You change his countenance and send him away.
JOB.14:21 His sons come to honor, and he does not know it; They are brought low, and he does not perceive it.
JOB.14:22 But his flesh will be in pain over it, And his soul will mourn over it.”
