018:017:001
My breath is corrupt,
my days are extinct,
the graves are ready for me.


018:017:002
Are there not mockers with me?
and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?


018:017:003
Lay down now,
put me in a surety with thee;
who is he that will strike hands with me?


018:017:004
For thou hast hid their heart from understanding:
therefore shalt thou not exalt them.


018:017:005
He that speaketh flattery to his friends,
even the eyes of his children shall fail.


018:017:006
He hath made me also a byword of the people;
and aforetime I was as a tabret.


018:017:007
Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow,
and all my members are as a shadow.


018:017:008
Upright men shall be astonied at this,
and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.


018:017:009
The righteous also shall hold on his way,
and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.


018:017:010
But as for you all,
do ye return,
and come now:
for I cannot find one wise man among you.


018:017:011
My days are past,
my purposes are broken off,
even the thoughts of my heart.


018:017:012
They change the night into day:
the light is short because of darkness.


018:017:013
If I wait,
the grave is mine house:
I have made my bed in the darkness.


018:017:014
I have said to corruption,
Thou art my father:
to the worm,
Thou art my mother,
and my sister.


018:017:015
And where is now my hope?
as for my hope,
who shall see it?


018:017:016
They shall go down to the bars of the pit,
when our rest together is in the dust.
