JOB
CHAPTER: 3 | VERSES: 26

And Job spake, and said,
1 of 26
Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.
2 of 26
Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
3 of 26
Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.
4 of 26
As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.
5 of 26
Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.
6 of 26
Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.
7 of 26
Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day:
8 of 26
Because it shut not up the doors of my mother's womb, nor hid sorrow from mine eyes.
9 of 26
Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly?
10 of 26
Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?
11 of 26
For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest,
12 of 26
With kings and counsellors of the earth, which built desolate places for themselves;
13 of 26
Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver:
14 of 26
Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw light.
15 of 26
There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.
16 of 26
There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.
17 of 26
The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master.
18 of 26
Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;
19 of 26
Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;
20 of 26
Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?
21 of 26
Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?
22 of 26
For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters.
23 of 26
For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
24 of 26
I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.
25 of 26
