if I say to corruption, 'You are my father,' and to the worm, 'My mother' or 'My sister,'
King James Bible
I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.
American Standard Version
If I have said to corruption, Thou art my father; To the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister;
Young's Literal Translation
To corruption I have called: -- 'Thou art my father.' 'My mother' and 'my sister' -- to the worm.
Job 17:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I have said to corruption - I came from a corrupted stock, and I must go to corruption again. The Hebrew might be thus rendered: To the ditch I have called, Thou art my father. To the worm, Thou art my mother and my sister. I am in the nearest state of affinity to dissolution and corruption: I may well call them my nearest relations, as I shall soon be blended with them.
