Job 17
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1My spirit is exhausted and my days have become extinct! The tomb is ready for me!

2Because there is no falsehood with me, and in their bitterness my spirit spends the night

3Set now my tent with you! Why is this entrusted into my hands?

4Because you have hidden their heart from understanding, therefore they shall be exalted in their deception

5And a friend will be lifted up over his friend, also the eyes of their sons will be darkened

6He raised up the Ruler of the nations, and he created a veil over their faces

7My eye aches from passion and all my senses are as a shadow

8The upright will be amazed for this, and the innocent one will be emptied out for the guilty

9The righteous shall hold his way and will grasp firmly, and he whose hands are clean will add to power

10However, behold, all of you returned and you turned and you came to me, and I did not find among you one who is wise

11Passers of days! Aborters of ideas! Destroyers of the hearts of people!

12You put the night for day, and you sacrifice the light to the darkness

13If I shall lie in ambush, my house is in Sheol, and I deserve my bed in darkness

14To destruction I cried to the worm: ‘you are my father!’, and ‘my mother and my sister!’

15‘Where is my hope and my trust from now on? And my hope, who shall find it?

16Into the bottom to Sheol you will go down!’ And together to the dust they shall descend!”
