Job 7

7:1 [Is there] not an appointed time to man upon earth? [are
 not] his days also like the days of a hireling?
7:2 As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as a
 hireling looketh for [the reward of] his work;
7:3 So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome
 nights are appointed to me.
7:4 When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be
 gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro to the dawning of
 the day.
7:5 My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is
 broken and become lothsome.
7:6 My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent
 without hope.
7:7 O remember that my life [is] wind: my eye will no more see
7:8 The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no [more]: thy
 eyes [are] upon me, and I [am] not.
7:9 [As] the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that
 goeth down to the grave shall come up no [more].
7:10 He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his
 place know him any more.
7:11 Therefore I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the
 anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my
7:12 [Am] I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch over
7:13 When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my
7:14 Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through
7:15 So that my soul chooseth strangling, [and] death rather
 than my life.
7:16 I lothe [it]; I would not live always: let me alone; for my
 days [are] vanity.
7:17 What [is] man, that thou shouldst magnify him? and that
 thou shouldst set thy heart upon him?
7:18 And [that] thou shouldst visit him every morning, [and] try
 him every moment?
7:19 How long wilt thou not depart from me, nor let me alone
 till I swallow my spittle?
7:20 I have sinned; what shall I do to thee, O thou preserver of
 men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am
 a burden to myself?
7:21 And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take
 away my iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou
 shalt seek me in the morning, but I [shall] not [be].
