JOB 10:1 My soul hath been weary of my life, I leave off my talking to myself, I speak in the bitterness of my soul.

JOB 10:2 I say unto God, `Do not condemn me, Let me know why Thou dost strive `with' me.

JOB 10:3 Is it good for Thee that Thou dost oppress? That Thou despisest the labour of Thy hands, And on the counsel of the wicked hast shone?

JOB 10:4 Eyes of flesh hast Thou? As man seeth -- seest Thou?

JOB 10:5 As the days of man `are' Thy days? Thy years as the days of a man?

JOB 10:6 That Thou inquirest for mine iniquity, And for my sin seekest?

JOB 10:7 For Thou knowest that I am not wicked, And there is no deliverer from Thy hand.

JOB 10:8 Thy hands have taken pains about me, And they make me together round about, And Thou swallowest me up!

JOB 10:9 Remember, I pray Thee, That as clay Thou hast made me, And unto dust Thou dost bring me back.

JOB 10:10 Dost Thou not as milk pour me out? And as cheese curdle me?

JOB 10:11 Skin and flesh Thou dost put on me, And with bones and sinews dost fence me.

JOB 10:12 Life and kindness Thou hast done with me. And Thy inspection hath preserved my spirit.

JOB 10:13 And these Thou hast laid up in Thy heart, I have known that this `is' with Thee.

JOB 10:14 If I sinned, then Thou hast observed me, And from mine iniquity dost not acquit me,

JOB 10:15 If I have done wickedly -- wo to me, And righteously -- I lift not up my head, Full of shame -- then see my affliction,

JOB 10:16 And it riseth -- as a lion Thou huntest me. And Thou turnest back -- Thou shewest Thyself wonderful in me.

JOB 10:17 Thou renewest Thy witnesses against me, And dost multiply Thine anger with me, Changes and warfare `are' with me.

JOB 10:18 And why from the womb Hast Thou brought me forth? I expire, and the eye doth not see me.

JOB 10:19 As I had not been, I am, From the belly to the grave I am brought,

JOB 10:20 Are not my days few? Cease then, and put from me, And I brighten up a little,

JOB 10:21 Before I go, and return not, Unto a land of darkness and death-shade,

JOB 10:22 A land of obscurity as thick darkness, Death-shade -- and no order, And the shining `is' as thick darkness.'
