Job 7:7-16 New International Version

7  Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again. 8  The eye that now sees me will see me no longer; you will look for me, but I will be no more. 9  As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so one who goes down to the grave does not return. 10  He will never come to his house again; his place will know him no more. 11  "Therefore I will not keep silent; I will speak out in the anguish of my spirit, I will complain in the bitterness of my soul. 12  Am I the sea, or the monster of the deep, that you put me under guard? 13  When I think my bed will comfort me and my couch will ease my complaint, 14  even then you frighten me with dreams and terrify me with visions, 15  so that I prefer strangling and death, rather than this body of mine. 16  I despise my life; I would not live forever. Let me alone; my days have no meaning.
