3:1 After [H310] this opened [H6605] Job [H347] his mouth [H6310] , and cursed [H7043] his day [H3117] .
3:2 And Job [H347] spake [H6030] , and said [H559] ,(spake: Heb. answered)
3:3 Let the day [H3117] perish [H6] wherein I was born [H3205] , and the night [H3915] [in which] it was said [H559] , There is a man child [H1397] conceived [H2029] .
3:4 Let that day [H3117] be darkness [H2822] ; let not God [H433] regard [H1875] it from above [H4605] , neither let the light [H5105] shine [H3313] upon it.
3:5 Let darkness [H2822] and the shadow of death [H6757] stain [H1350] it; let a cloud [H6053] dwell [H7931] upon it; let the blackness [H3650] of the day [H3117] terrify [H1204] it.(stain: or, challenge)(let the: or, let them terrify it, as those who have a bitter day)
3:6 As [for] that night [H3915] , let darkness [H652] seize [H3947] upon it; let it not be joined [H2302] unto the days [H3117] of the year [H8141] , let it not come [H935] into the number [H4557] of the months [H3391] .(let it not be: or, let it not rejoice among the days)
3:7 Lo, let that night [H3915] be solitary [H1565] , let no joyful voice [H7445] come [H935] therein.
3:8 Let them curse [H5344] it that curse [H779] the day [H3117] , who are ready [H6264] to raise up [H5782] their mourning [H3882] .(their: or, leviathan)
3:9 Let the stars [H3556] of the twilight [H5399] thereof be dark [H2821] ; let it look [H6960] for light [H216] , but [have] none; neither let it see [H7200] the dawning [H6079] of the day [H7837] :(the dawning: Heb. the eyelids of the morning)
3:10 Because it shut not up [H5462] the doors [H1817] of my [mother's] womb [H990] , nor hid [H5641] sorrow [H5999] from mine eyes [H5869] .
3:11 Why died [H4191] I not from the womb [H7358] ? [why] did I [not] give up the ghost [H1478] when I came out [H3318] of the belly [H990] ?
3:12 Why did the knees [H1290] prevent [H6923] me? or why the breasts [H7699] that I should suck [H3243] ?
3:13 For now should I have lain still [H7901] and been quiet [H8252] , I should have slept [H3462] : then had I been at rest [H5117] ,
3:14 With kings [H4428] and counsellors [H3289] of the earth [H776] , which built [H1129] desolate places [H2723] for themselves;
3:15 Or with princes [H8269] that had gold [H2091] , who filled [H4390] their houses [H1004] with silver [H3701] :
3:16 Or as an hidden [H2934] untimely birth [H5309] I had not been; as infants [H5768] [which] never saw [H7200] light [H216] .
3:17 There the wicked [H7563] cease [H2308] [from] troubling [H7267] ; and there the weary [H3019] [H3581] be at rest [H5117] .(weary: Heb. wearied in strength)
3:18 [There] the prisoners [H615] rest [H7599] together [H3162] ; they hear [H8085] not the voice [H6963] of the oppressor [H5065] .
3:19 The small [H6996] and great [H1419] are there; and the servant [H5650] [is] free [H2670] from his master [H113] .
3:20 Wherefore is light [H216] given [H5414] to him that is in misery [H6001] , and life [H2416] unto the bitter [H4751] [in] soul [H5315] ;
3:21 Which long [H2442] for death [H4194] , but it [cometh] not; and dig [H2658] for it more than for hid treasures [H4301] ;(long: Heb. wait)
3:22 Which rejoice [H8056] exceedingly [H1524] , [and] are glad [H7797] , when they can find [H4672] the grave [H6913] ?
3:23 [Why is light given] to a man [H1397] whose way [H1870] is hid [H5641] , and whom God [H433] hath hedged in [H5526] ?
3:24 For my sighing [H585] cometh [H935] before [H6440] I eat [H3899] , and my roarings [H7581] are poured out [H5413] like the waters [H4325] .(I eat: Heb. my meat)
3:25 For the thing which I greatly [H6343] feared [H6342] is come [H857] upon me, and that which I was afraid [H3025] of is come [H935] unto me.(the thing: Heb. I feared a fear, and it came upon me)
3:26 I was not in safety [H7951] , neither had I rest [H8252] , neither was I quiet [H5117] ; yet trouble [H7267] came [H935] .
