Job 17

17:1 My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves [are
 ready] for me.
17:2 [Are there] not mockers with me? and doth not my eye
 continue in their provocation?
17:3 Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who [is] he
 [that] will strike hands with me?
17:4 For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore
 shalt thou not exalt [them].
17:5 He that speaketh flattery to [his] friends, even the eyes
 of his children shall fail.
17:6 He hath made me also a by-word of the people; and in former
 time I was as a tabret.
17:7 My eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members
 [are] as a shade.
17:8 Upright [men] shall be astonished at this, and the innocent
 shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.
17:9 The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath
 clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
17:10 But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I
 cannot find [one] wise [man] among you.
17:11 My days are past, my purposes are broken off, [even] the
 thoughts of my heart.
17:12 They change the night into day: the light [is] short
 because of darkness.
17:13 If I wait, the grave [is] my house: I have made my bed in
 the darkness.
17:14 I have said to corruption, Thou [art] my father: to the
 worm, [Thou art] my mother, and my sister.
17:15 And where [is] now my hope? as for my hope, who will see
17:16 They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when [our] rest
 together [is] in the dust.
