Job 14:1–12

Man that is aborn of a woman

Is of few days, and bfull of trouble.

He cometh forth like ca flower, and dis cut down:

He fleeth also as ea shadow, and continueth not.

And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one,

And fbringest me into judgment with thee?

Who can gbring a clean thing out of an unclean?

hNot one.

Seeing his days are determined,

The number of his months are with thee,

Thou hast appointed his ubounds that he cannot pass;

iTurn from him, that he may rest,

Till he shall jaccomplish, kas an hireling, his day.

For there is hope of a tree,

If it be cut down, kkthat it will lsprout again,

And that the mtender branch thereof will not cease.

Though the root thereof wax old in the earth,

And the nstock thereof die in the ground;

Yet through the scent of water it will bud,

And bring forth oboughs like a plant.

10  pBut man dieth, and wasteth away:

Yea, man giveth up the ghost, and qwhere is he?

11  As qqthe waters fail from the sea,

qqAnd the flood decayeth and drieth up:

12  So man lieth down, and riseth not:

rTill the heavens be no more, they shall not awake,

Nor be raised out of their sleep.
