Chapter 14

1

 Man [that is] born of a woman [is] of few days, and full of trouble. 

2

 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. 

3

 And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee? 

4

 Who can bring a clean [thing] out of an unclean? not one. 

5

 Seeing his days [are] determined, the number of his months [are] with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; 

6

 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day. 

7

 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. 

8

 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; 

9

 [Yet] through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant. 

10

 But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where [is] he? 

11

 [As] the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: 

12

 So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens [be] no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. 

13

 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! 

14

 If a man die, shall he live [again]? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. 

15

 Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands. 

16

 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin? 

17

 My transgression [is] sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity. 

18

 And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place. 

19

 The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow [out] of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man. 

20

 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away. 

21

 His sons come to honour, and he knoweth [it] not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth [it] not of them. 

22

 But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn. 

Job 15
