"May the day of my birth perish, and the night that said, 'A boy is conceived!'
King James Bible
Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.
American Standard Version
Let the day perish wherein I was born, And the night which said, There is a man-child conceived.
Young's Literal Translation
Let the day perish in which I am born, And the night that hath said: 'A man-child hath been conceived.'
Job 3:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
There is a man-child conceived - The word הרה harah signifies to conceive; yet here, it seems, it should be taken in the sense of being born, as it is perfectly unlikely that the night of conception should be either distinctly known or published.
