Darby Bible Translation
How long wilt thou not look away from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?
World English Bible
How long will you not look away from me, nor leave me alone until I swallow down my spittle?
Young's Literal Translation
How long dost Thou not look from me? Thou dost not desist till I swallow my spittle.

I am urged by my sufferings to continue my complaint; but my strength is exhausted, my mouth dry with speaking. Suspend my sufferings even for so short a space as is necessary to swallow my spittle, that my parched tongue may be moistened, so that I may renew my complaint.

Are not my few days almost over? Turn away from me so I can have a moment's joy
So look away from him and let him alone, till he has put in his time like a hired laborer.
Look away from me, that I may enjoy life again before I depart and am no more."
