Job 33:19-26 King James Version

19  He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain: 20  So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty [1] meat. 21  His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out. 22  Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers. 23  If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness: 24  Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. [2] 25  His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: [3] he shall return to the days of his youth: 26  He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.
