1 H6635 Is there not an appointed time H582 to man H776 upon earth H3117 ? are not his days H3117 also like the days H7916 of an hireling?
2 H5650 As a servant H7602 [H8799] earnestly desireth H6738 the shadow H7916 , and as an hireling H6960 [H8762] looketh H6467 for the reward of his work:
3 H5157 [H8717] So am I made to possess H3391 months H7723 of vanity H5999 , and wearisome H3915 nights H4487 [H8765] are appointed to me.
4 H7901 [H8804] When I lie down H559 [H8804] , I say H6965 [H8799] , When shall I arise H6153 , and the night H4059 be gone H7646 [H8804] ? and I am full H5076 of tossings to and fro H5399 to the dawning of the day.
5 H1320 My flesh H3847 [H8804] is clothed H7415 with worms H1487 and clods H6083 of dust H5785 ; my skin H7280 [H8804] is broken H3988 [H8735] , and become loathsome.
6 H3117 My days H7043 [H8804] are swifter H708 than a weaver's shuttle H3615 [H8799] , and are spent H657 without H8615 hope.
7 H2142 [H8798] O remember H2416 that my life H7307 is a breath H5869 : my eye H7725 [H8799] shall no more H7200 [H8800] see H2896 good.
8 H5869 The eye H7210 of him that hath seen H7789 [H8799] me shall see H5869 me no more: thy eyes are upon me, and I am not.
9 H6051 As the cloud H3615 [H8804] is consumed H3212 [H8799] and vanisheth away H3381 [H8802] : so he that goeth down H7585 to the grave H5927 [H8799] shall come up no more.
10 H7725 [H8799] He shall return H1004 no more to his house H4725 , neither shall his place H5234 [H8686] know him any more.
11 H2820 [H8799] Therefore I will not restrain H6310 my mouth H1696 [H8762] ; I will speak H6862 in the anguish H7307 of my spirit H7878 [H8799] ; I will complain H4751 in the bitterness H5315 of my soul.
13 H559 [H8804] When I say H6210 , My bed H5162 [H8762] shall comfort H4904 me, my couch H5375 [H8799] shall ease H7879 my complaint;
14 H2865 [H8765] Then thou scarest H2472 me with dreams H1204 [H8762] , and terrifiest H2384 me through visions:
15 H5315 So that my soul H977 [H8799] chooseth H4267 strangling H4194 , and death H6106 rather than my life.
16 H3988 [H8804] I loathe H2421 [H8799] it; I would not live H5769 always H2308 [H8798] : let me alone H3117 ; for my days H1892 are vanity.
17 H582 What is man H1431 [H8762] , that thou shouldest magnify H7896 [H8799] him? and that thou shouldest set H3820 thy heart upon him?
18 H6485 [H8799] And that thou shouldest visit H1242 him every morning H974 [H8799] , and try H7281 him every moment?
19 H4100 How long H8159 [H8799] wilt thou not look away H7503 [H8686] from me, nor let me alone H1104 [H8800] till I swallow H7536 my spittle?
20 H2398 [H8804] I have sinned H6466 [H8799] ; what shall I do H5341 [H8802] to thee, O thou preserver H120 of men H7760 [H8804] ? why hast thou set H4645 me as a mark H4853 against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?
