Job 10:1

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

Job 10:2

I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; show me wherefore thou contendest with me.

Job 10:3

[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?

Job 10:4

Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?

Job 10:5

[Are] thy days as the days of man? [are] thy years as man's days,

Job 10:6

That thou inquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?

Job 10:7

Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and [there is] none that can deliver out of thine hand.

Job 10:8

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

Job 10:9

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

Job 10:10

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

Job 10:11

Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

Job 10:12

Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

Job 10:13

And these [things] hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this [is] with thee.

Job 10:14

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

Job 10:15

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;

Job 10:16

For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou showest thyself marvellous upon me.

Job 10:17

Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war [are] against me.

Job 10:18

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!

Job 10:19

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

Job 10:20

[Are] not my days few? cease [then, and] let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,

Job 10:21

Before I go [whence] I shall not return, [even] to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;

Job 10:22

A land of darkness, as darkness [itself; and] of the shadow of death, without any order, and [where] the light [is] as darkness.
