Job 14
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.

2He comes forth like an open flower and is cut down; he flees as a shadow and does not remain.

3And dost thou open thine eyes upon such a one and bring me into judgment with thee?

4Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? No one.

5Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass.

6If thou should leave him, he will cease to exist; until then, he shall desire, as a hireling, his day.

7For there is yet hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again and that its tender branch will not cease.

8Though its root waxes old in the earth and its trunk is dead in the ground,

9at the scent of water it will bud and bring forth boughs like a new plant.

10But when man shall die and be cut off, and the man shall perish, where shall he be?

11The waters from the sea went, and the river ran out, it dried up.

12So man lies down and does not rise; until there is no heaven, they shall not awake nor be raised out of their sleep.

13O that thou would hide me in Sheol, that thou would keep me covered until thy wrath is past, that thou would appoint me a set time and remember me!

14If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my appointed time I will wait until my transformation comes.

15Then thou shalt call, and I will answer thee; thou wilt have a desire towards the work of thine hands.

16For now thou dost number my steps; thou dost not open up my sin.

17My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou dost sew up my iniquity.

18And certainly the mountain that falls is undone, and the rocks are removed out of their place.

19The impetuous waters break the stones and wash away the dust of the earth; in like manner thou dost cause man to lose hope.

20Thou shalt be stronger than him for ever, and he passes; thou dost change his countenance and send him away.

21His sons shall be honoured and he shall not know of it; or they shall be afflicted, but he shall not perceive of them.

22But while his flesh is upon him, he shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.
