17 ||My breath is corrupt,
My days are aextinct,
bThe graves are ready for me.
And doth not mine eye †continue in their provocation?
3 Lay down now, cput me in a surety with thee;
Who is he that dwill strike hands with me?
Therefore shalt thou not exalt them.
Even ethe eyes of his children shall fail.
6 He hath made me also fa byword of the people;
And ||aforetime I was as a tabret.
7 gMine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow,
8 Upright men shall be iastonied at this,
And the innocent shall jstir up himself against the hypocrite.
10 But as for you all, ldo ye return, and come now:
For I cannot find one wise man among you.
11 mMy days are past,
My purposes are nbroken off,
Even †the thoughts of my heart.
12 oThey change the night into day:
13 If I wait, the grave is mine rhouse:
I have made my bed in the darkness.
14 I have †said to corruption, Thou art my father:
To the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.
As for my hope, who shall see it?
16 They shall go down to the sbars of the pit,
