Job 7

1  Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?

2  As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:

3  So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.

4  When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.

5  My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.

6  My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.

7  O remember that my life is wind: mine eye shall no more see good.

8  The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not.

9  As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more.

10  He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.
