Job 142 He comes forth like a flower and withers; he flees also like a shadow and continues not. 3 And do You open Your eyes upon such a one, and bring me into judgment with You? 4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? No one! 5 Since a man's days are already determined, and the number of his months is wholly in Your control, and he cannot pass the bounds of his allotted time-- 6 turn from him ; let him rest until he has accomplished as does a hireling the appointed time for his day. 7 For there is hope for a tree if it is cut down, that it will sprout again and that the tender shoots of it will not cease. 8 Though its roots grow old in the earth and its stock dies in the ground, 9 Yet through the scent of water will bud and bring forth boughs like a young plant. 10 But man must die and lie prostrate; yes, man breathes his last, and where is he? 11 As waters evaporate from the lake, and the river drains and dries up, 12 So man lies down and does not rise . Till the heavens are no more, men will not awake nor be raised out of their sleep. 13 Oh, that You would hide me in Sheol (the unseen state), that You would conceal me until Your wrath is past, that You would set a definite time and then remember me earnestly ! 14 If a man dies, shall he live again? All the days of my warfare and service I will wait, till my change and release shall come. 15 You would call and I would answer You; You would yearn for the work of Your hands. 16 But now You number each of my steps and take note of my every sin. 17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and You glue up my iniquity . 18 But as a mountain, if it falls, crumbles to nothing, and as the rock is removed out of its place, 19 As waters wear away the stones and as floods wash away the soil of the earth, so You destroy the hope of man. 20 You prevail forever against him, and he passes on; You change his appearance and send him away . 21 His sons come to honor, and he knows it not; they are brought low, and he perceives it not. 22 But his body shall grieve over him, and his soul shall mourn .
