JOB 14:1 Man, born of woman! Of few days, and full of trouble!
JOB 14:2 As a flower he hath gone forth, and is cut off, And he fleeth as a shadow and standeth not.
JOB 14:3 Also -- on this Thou hast opened Thine eyes, And dost bring me into judgment with Thee.
JOB 14:4 Who giveth a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.
JOB 14:5 If determined are his days, The number of his months `are' with Thee, His limit Thou hast made, And he passeth not over;
JOB 14:6 Look away from off him that he may cease, Till he enjoy as an hireling his day.
JOB 14:7 For there is of a tree hope, if it be cut down, That again it doth change, That its tender branch doth not cease.
JOB 14:8 If its root becometh old in the earth, And its stem doth die in the dust,
JOB 14:9 From the fragrance of water it doth flourish, And hath made a crop as a plant.
JOB 14:10 And a man dieth, and becometh weak, And man expireth, and where `is' he?
JOB 14:11 Waters have gone away from a sea, And a river becometh waste and dry.
JOB 14:12 And man hath lain down, and riseth not, Till the wearing out of the heavens they awake not, Nor are roused from their sleep.
JOB 14:13 O that in Sheol Thou wouldst conceal me, Hide me till the turning of Thine anger, Set for me a limit, and remember me.
JOB 14:14 If a man dieth -- doth he revive? All days of my warfare I wait, till my change come.
JOB 14:15 Thou dost call, and I -- I answer Thee; To the work of Thy hands Thou hast desire.
JOB 14:16 But now, my steps Thou numberest, Thou dost not watch over my sin.
JOB 14:17 Sealed up in a bag `is' my transgression, And Thou sewest up mine iniquity.
JOB 14:18 And yet, a falling mountain wasteth away, And a rock is removed from its place.
JOB 14:19 Stones have waters worn away, Their outpourings wash away the dust of earth, And the hope of man Thou hast destroyed.
JOB 14:20 Thou prevailest `over' him for ever, and he goeth, He is changing his countenance, And Thou sendest him away.
JOB 14:21 Honoured are his sons, and he knoweth not; And they are little, and he attendeth not to them.
JOB 14:22 Only -- his flesh for him is pained, And his soul for him doth mourn.'
