018:010:001
My soul is weary of my life;
I will leave my complaint upon myself;
I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.


018:010:002
I will say unto God,
Do not condemn me;
shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.


018:010:003
Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress,
that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands,
and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?


018:010:004
Hast thou eyes of flesh?
or seest thou as man seeth?


018:010:005
Are thy days as the days of man?
are thy years as man's days,


018:010:006
That thou enquirest after mine iniquity,
and searchest after my sin?


018:010:007
Thou knowest that I am not wicked;
and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.


018:010:008
Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about;
yet thou dost destroy me.


018:010:009
Remember,
I beseech thee,
that thou hast made me as the clay;
and wilt thou bring me into dust again?


018:010:010
Hast thou not poured me out as milk,
and curdled me like cheese?


018:010:011
Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh,
and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.


018:010:012
Thou hast granted me life and favour,
and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.


018:010:013
And these things hast thou hid in thine heart:
I know that this is with thee.


018:010:014
If I sin,
then thou markest me,
and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.


018:010:015
If I be wicked,
woe unto me;
and if I be righteous,
yet will I not lift up my head.
I am full of confusion;
therefore see thou mine affliction;


018:010:016
For it increaseth.
Thou huntest me as a fierce lion:
and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.


018:010:017
Thou renewest thy witnesses against me,
and increasest thine indignation upon me;
changes and war are against me.


018:010:018
Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb?
Oh that I had given up the ghost,
and no eye had seen me!


018:010:019
I should have been as though I had not been;
I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.


018:010:020
Are not my days few?
cease then,
and let me alone,
that I may take comfort a little,


018:010:021
Before I go whence I shall not return,
even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;


018:010:022
A land of darkness,
as darkness itself;
and of the shadow of death,
without any order,
and where the light is as darkness.
