1I am disgusted with my life. I will give vent to my complaint and speak in the bitterness of my soul.1“I loathe my own life; I will express my complaint and speak in the bitterness of my soul.
2I will say to God, "Do not declare me guilty! Let me know why you prosecute me.2I will say to God: Do not condemn me! Let me know why You prosecute me.
3Is it good for you to oppress, to reject the work of your hands, and favor the plans of the wicked?3Does it please You to oppress me, to reject the work of Your hands, and favor the schemes of the wicked?
4Do you have eyes of flesh, or do you see as a human sees?4Do You have eyes of flesh? Do You see as man sees?
5Are your days like those of a human, or your years like those of a man,5Are Your days like those of a mortal, or Your years like those of a man,
6that you look for my iniquity and search for my sin,6that You should seek my iniquity and search out my sin—
7even though you know that I am not wicked and that there is no one who can rescue from your power?7though You know that I am not guilty, and there is no deliverance from Your hand?
8"Your hands shaped me and formed me. Will you now turn and destroy me?8Your hands shaped me and altogether formed me. Will You now turn and destroy me?
9Please remember that you formed me like clay. Will you now return me to dust?9Please remember that You molded me like clay. Will You now return me to dust?
10Did you not pour me out like milk and curdle me like cheese?10Did You not pour me out like milk, and curdle me like cheese?
11You clothed me with skin and flesh, and wove me together with bones and tendons.11You clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews.
12You gave me life and faithful love, and your care has guarded my life.12You have granted me life and loving devotion, and Your care has preserved my spirit.
13"Yet you concealed these thoughts in your heart; I know that this was your hidden plan:13Yet You concealed these things in Your heart, and I know that this was in Your mind:
14if I sin, you would notice, and would not acquit me of my iniquity.14If I sinned, You would take note, and would not acquit me of my iniquity.
15If I am wicked, woe to me! And even if I am righteous, I cannot lift up my head. I am filled with shame and have drunk deeply of my affliction.15If I am guilty, woe to me! And even if I am righteous, I cannot lift my head. I am full of shame and aware of my affliction.
16If I am proud, you hunt me like a lion and again display your miraculous power against me.16Should I hold my head high, You would hunt me like a lion, and again display Your power against me.
17You produce new witnesses against me and multiply your anger toward me. Hardships assault me, wave after wave.17You produce new witnesses against me and multiply Your anger toward me. Hardships assault me in wave after wave.
18"Why did you bring me out of the womb? I should have died and never been seen.18Why then did You bring me from the womb? Oh, that I had died, and no eye had seen me!
19I wish I had never existed but had been carried from the womb to the grave.19If only I had never come to be, but had been carried from the womb to the grave.
20Are my days not few? Stop it! Leave me alone, so that I can smile a little20Are my days not few? Withdraw from me, that I may have a little comfort,
21before I go to a land of darkness and gloom, never to return.21before I go—never to return—to a land of darkness and gloom,
22It is a land of blackness like the deepest darkness, gloomy and chaotic, where even the light is like the darkness."22to a land of utter darkness, of deep shadow and disorder, where even the light is like darkness.”
