KJV JOB7 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB6.htm JOB8.htm
7:1 [Is there] not an appointed time [H6635] to man [H582] upon earth [H776] ? [are not] his days [H3117] also like the days [H3117] of an hireling [H7916] ?(an appointed: or, a warfare)
7:2 As a servant [H5650] earnestly desireth [H7602] the shadow [H6738] , and as an hireling [H7916] looketh [H6960] for [the reward of] his work [H6467] :(earnestly: Heb. gapeth after)
7:3 So am I made to possess [H5157] months [H3391] of vanity [H7723] , and wearisome [H5999] nights [H3915] are appointed [H4487] to me.
7:4 When I lie down [H7901] , I say [H559] , When shall I arise [H6965] , and the night [H6153] be gone [H4059] ? and I am full [H7646] of tossings to and fro [H5076] unto the dawning of the day [H5399] .(the night: Heb. the evening be measured?)
7:5 My flesh [H1320] is clothed [H3847] with worms [H7415] and clods [H1487] of dust [H6083] ; my skin [H5785] is broken [H7280] , and become loathsome [H3988] .
7:6 My days [H3117] are swifter [H7043] than a weaver's shuttle [H708] , and are spent [H3615] without [H657] hope [H8615] .
7:7 O remember [H2142] that my life [H2416] [is] wind [H7307] : mine eye [H5869] shall no more [H7725] see [H7200] good [H2896] .(shall: Heb. shall not return)(see: to see, that is, to enjoy)
7:8 The eye [H5869] of him that hath seen [H7210] me shall see [H7789] me no [more]: thine eyes [H5869] [are] upon me, and I [am] not.(I am: that is, I can live no longer)
7:9 [As] the cloud [H6051] is consumed [H3615] and vanisheth away [H3212] : so he that goeth down [H3381] to the grave [H7585] shall come up [H5927] no [more].
7:10 He shall return [H7725] no more to his house [H1004] , neither shall his place [H4725] know [H5234] him any more.
7:11 Therefore I will not refrain [H2820] my mouth [H6310] ; I will speak [H1696] in the anguish [H6862] of my spirit [H7307] ; I will complain [H7878] in the bitterness [H4751] of my soul [H5315] .
7:12 [Am] I a sea [H3220] , or a whale [H8577] , that thou settest [H7760] a watch [H4929] over me?
7:13 When I say [H559] , My bed [H6210] shall comfort [H5162] me, my couch [H4904] shall ease [H5375] my complaint [H7879] ;
7:14 Then thou scarest [H2865] me with dreams [H2472] , and terrifiest [H1204] me through visions [H2384] :
7:15 So that my soul [H5315] chooseth [H977] strangling [H4267] , [and] death [H4194] rather than my life [H6106] .(life: Heb. bones)
7:16 I loathe [H3988] [it]; I would not live [H2421] alway [H5769] : let me alone [H2308] ; for my days [H3117] [are] vanity [H1892] .
7:17 What [is] man [H582] , that thou shouldest magnify [H1431] him? and that thou shouldest set [H7896] thine heart [H3820] upon him?
7:18 And [that] thou shouldest visit [H6485] him every morning [H1242] , [and] try [H974] him every moment [H7281] ?
7:19 How long [H4100] wilt thou not depart [H8159] from me, nor let me alone [H7503] till I swallow down [H1104] my spittle [H7536] ?
7:20 I have sinned [H2398] ; what shall I do [H6466] unto thee, O thou preserver [H5341] of men [H120] ? why hast thou set [H7760] me as a mark [H4645] against thee, so that I am a burden [H4853] to myself?
7:21 And why dost thou not pardon [H5375] my transgression [H6588] , and take away [H5674] mine iniquity [H5771] ? for now shall I sleep [H7901] in the dust [H6083] ; and thou shalt seek me in the morning [H7836] , but I [shall] not [be].
