Why is light given to a man whose way is hidden, whom God has hedged in?
Young's Literal Translation
To a man whose way hath been hidden, And whom God doth shut up?

Mr. Good translates the verse thus: To the man whose path is broken up, and whose futurity God hath overwhelmed. But I cannot see any necessity for departing from the common text, which gives both an easy and a natural sense.

who are filled with gladness and rejoice when they reach the grave?
then know that God has wronged me and drawn his net around me.
He has blocked my way so I cannot pass; he has shrouded my paths in darkness.
You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape;
He has walled me in so I cannot escape; he has weighed me down with chains.
