"Isn't a man forced to labor on earth? Aren't his days like the days of a hired hand?
As a servant who earnestly desires the shadow, as a hireling who looks for his wages,
so am I made to possess months of misery, wearisome nights are appointed to me.
When I lie down, I say, 'When shall I arise, and the night be gone?' I toss and turn until the dawning of the day.
My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust. My skin closes up, and breaks out afresh.
My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.
Oh remember that my life is a breath. My eye shall no more see good.
The eye of him who sees me shall see me no more. Your eyes shall be on me, but I shall not be.
As the cloud is consumed and vanishes away, so he who goes down to Sheol shall come up no more.
He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.
"Therefore I will not keep silent. I will speak in the anguish of my spirit. I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
Am I a sea, or a sea monster, that you put a guard over me?
When I say, 'My bed shall comfort me. My couch shall ease my complaint;'
then you scare me with dreams, and terrify me through visions:
so that my soul chooses strangling, death rather than my bones.
I loathe my life. I don't want to live forever. Leave me alone, for my days are but a breath.
What is man, that you should magnify him, that you should set your mind on him,
that you should visit him every morning, and test him every moment?
How long will you not look away from me, nor leave me alone until I swallow down my spittle?
If I have sinned, what do I do to you, you watcher of men? Why have you set me as a mark for you, so that I am a burden to myself?
Why do you not pardon my disobedience, and take away my iniquity? For now shall I lie down in the dust. You will seek me diligently, but I shall not be."
Let us love one another, for love comes from God and every one who loves is a child of God and knows God. He who loves not man does not know God, for God is love. God showed his love for us, for he sent his only Son into the world that through him we might have life. Love ye therefore the stranger.
