New International Version
My offenses will be sealed up in a bag; you will cover over my sin.
King James Bible

World English Bible
My disobedience is sealed up in a bag. You fasten up my iniquity.
Young's Literal Translation

Job 14:17 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
My transgression is sealed up in a bag - An allusion to the custom of collecting evidence of state transgressions, sealing them up in a bag, and presenting them to the judges and officers of state to be examined, in order to trial and judgment.

Some suppose the allusion is to money sealed up in bags; which is common in the East. This includes two ideas:
1. Job's transgressions were all numbered; not one was passed by.
2. They were sealed up; so that none of them could be lost. These bags were indifferently sewed or sealed, the two words in the text.
