1My spirit is broken, my lamp of life extinguished; my burial is at hand. 2I am indeed mocked, and, as their provocation mounts, my eyes grow dim. 3Grant me one to offer you a pledge on my behalf:* who is there that will give surety for me? 4You darken their minds to knowledge; therefore they do not understand. 5My lot is described as evil, 6and I am made a byword of the people; z Jb 30, 9 . their object lesson I have become. 7My eye has grown blind with anguish, and all my frame is shrunken to a shadow. 8Upright men are astonished at this, and the innocent aroused against the wicked. 9Yet the righteous shall hold to his way, and he who has clean hands increase in strength. 10But turn now, and come on again; for I shall not find a wise man among you! 11My days are passed away, my plans are at an end, the cherished purposes of my heart. 12Such men change the night into day; where there is darkness they talk of approaching light. 13If I look for the nether world as my dwelling, if I spread my couch in the darkness, 14If I must call corruption “my father,” and the maggot “my mother” and “my sister,” 15Where then is my hope, and my prosperity, who shall see? 16Will they descend with me into the nether world? Shall we go down together into the dust?
