Young's Literal Translation

Job 17

Job appealeth from men to God.

Job 17:1 My spirit hath been destroyed, My days extinguished—graves [are] for me. Job 17:2 If not—mockeries [are] with me. And in their provocations mine eye lodgeth. Job 17:3 Place, I pray Thee, my pledge with Thee; Who is he that striketh hand with me? Job 17:4 For their heart Thou hast hidden From understanding, Therefore Thou dost not exalt them. Job 17:5 For a portion he sheweth friendship, And the eyes of his sons are consumed.

The unmerciful dealing of men with the afflicted may astonish, but not discourage the righteous.

Job 17:6 And he set me up for a proverb of the peoples, And a wonder before them I am. Job 17:7 And dim from sorrow is mine eye, And my members as a shadow all of them. Job 17:8 Astonished are the upright at this, And the innocent against the profane Stirreth himself up. Job 17:9 And the righteous layeth hold [on] his way, And the clean of hands addeth strength, And—dumb are they all. Job 17:10 Return, and come in, I pray you, And I find not among you a wise man.

His hope is not in life, but in death.

Job 17:11 My days have passed by, My devices have been broken off, The possessions of my heart! Job 17:12 Night for day they appoint, Light [is] near because of darkness. Job 17:13 If I wait—Sheol [is] my house, In darkness I have spread out my couch. Job 17:14 To corruption I have called:—'Thou [art] my father.' 'My mother' and 'my sister'—to the worm. Job 17:15 And where [is] now my hope? Yea, my hope, who doth behold it? Job 17:16 [To] the parts of Sheol ye go down, If together on the dust we may rest.
