Job 17 - Versions
Job 17 Text (WEB)
  1. "My spirit is consumed. My days are extinct, And the grave is ready for me.
  2. Surely there are mockers with me. My eye dwells on their provocation.
  3. "Now give a pledge, be collateral for me with yourself. Who is there who will strike hands with me?
  4. For you have hidden their heart from understanding, Therefore you shall not exalt them.
  5. He who denounces his friends for a prey, Even the eyes of his children shall fail.
  6. "But he has made me a byword of the people. They spit in my face.
  7. My eye also is dim by reason of sorrow. All my members are as a shadow.
  8. Upright men shall be astonished at this. The innocent shall stir up himself against the godless.
  9. Yet shall the righteous hold on his way. He who has clean hands shall grow stronger and stronger.
  10. But as for you all, come on now again; I shall not find a wise man among you.
  11. My days are past, my plans are broken off, as are the thoughts of my heart.
  12. They change the night into day, saying 'The light is near' in the presence of darkness.
  13. If I look for Sheol as my house, if I have spread my couch in the darkness,
  14. If I have said to corruption, 'You are my father;' to the worm, 'My mother,' and 'my sister;'
  15. where then is my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?
  16. Shall it go down with me to the gates of Sheol, or descend together into the dust?"
Job 17 Text (Hebrew)
  1. רוחי חבלה ימי נזעכו קברים לי׃
  2. אם־לא התלים עמדי ובהמרותמ תלן עיני׃
  3. שימה־נא ערבני עמך מי הוא לידי יתקע׃
  4. כי־לבם צפנת משכל על־כן לא תרםם׃
  5. לחלק יגיד רעים ועיני בניו תכלנה׃
  6. והצגני למשל עמים ותפת לפנים אהיה׃
  7. ותכה מכעש עיני ויצרי כצל כלם׃
  8. ישמו ישרים על־זאת ונקי על־חנף יתערר׃
  9. ויאחז צדיק דרכו וטהר־ידים יסיף אמץ׃
  10. ואולם כלם תשבו ובאו נא ולא־אמצא בכם חכם׃
  11. ימי עברו זמתי נתקו מורשי לבבי׃
  12. לילה ליום ישימו אור קרוב מפני־חשך׃
  13. אם־אקוה שאול ביתי בחשך רפדתי יצועי׃
  14. לשחת קראתי אבי אתה אמי ואחתי לרמה׃
  15. ואיה אפו תקותי ותקותי מי ישורנה׃
  16. בדי שאל תרדנה אם־יחד על־עפר נחת׃ ס
Job 17 Text (Greek)
  1. ολεκομαι πνευματι φερομενος δεομαι δε ταφης και ου
  2. λισσομαι καμνων και τι
  3. εκλεψαν δε μου τα υπαρχοντα αλλοτριοι τις εστιν ουτος τη χειρι μου
  4. οτι καρδιαν αυτων εκρυψας απο φρονησεως δια τουτο ου μη υψωσης
  5. τη μεριδι αναγγελει κακιας οφθαλμοι δε μου εφ' υιοις
  6. εθου δε με θρυλημα εν εθνεσιν γελως δε αυτοις
  7. πεπωρωνται γαρ απο οργης οι οφθαλμοι μου πεπολιορκημαι μεγαλως υπο
  8. θαυμα εσχεν αληθινους επι τουτω δικαιος δε επι παρανομω
  9. σχοιη δε πιστος την εαυτου οδον καθαρος δε χειρας αναλαβοι
  10. ου μην δε αλλα παντες ερειδετε και δευτε δη ου γαρ ευρισκω εν υμιν
  11. αι ημεραι μου παρηλθον εν βρομω ερραγη δε τα αρθρα της καρδιας
  12. νυκτα εις ημεραν εθηκαν φως εγγυς απο προσωπου
  13. εαν γαρ υπομεινω αδης μου ο οικος εν δε γνοφω εστρωται μου η
  14. θανατον επεκαλεσαμην πατερα μου ειναι μητερα δε μου και αδελφην
  15. που ουν μου ετι εστιν η ελπις η τα αγαθα μου
  16. η μετ' εμου εις αδην καταβησονται η ομοθυμαδον επι χωματος
Job 17 Text (Latin)
  1. Spiritus meus attenuabitur, dies mei breviabuntur, et solum mihi superest sepulchrum.
  2. Non peccavi, et in amaritudinibus moratur oculus meus.
  3. Libera me, Domine, et pone me juxta te, et cujusvis manus pugnet contra me.
  4. Cor eorum longe fecisti a disciplina : propterea non exaltabuntur.
  5. Prædam pollicetur sociis, et oculi filiorum ejus deficient.
  6. Posuit me quasi in proverbium vulgi, et exemplum sum coram eis.
  7. Caligavit ab indignatione oculus meus, et membra mea quasi in nihilum redacta sunt.
  8. Stupebunt justi super hoc, et innocens contra hypocritam suscitabitur.
  9. Et tenebit justus viam suam, et mundis manibus addet fortitudinem.
  10. Igitur omnes vos convertimini, et venite, et non inveniam in vobis ullum sapientem.
  11. Dies mei transierunt : cogitationes meæ dissipatæ sunt, torquentes cor meum.
  12. Noctem verterunt in diem, et rursum post tenebras spero lucem.
  13. Si sustinuero, infernus domus mea est : et in tenebris stravi lectulum meum.
  14. Putredini dixi : Pater meus es : mater mea, et soror mea, vermibus.
  15. Ubi est ergo nunc præstolatio mea ? et patientiam meam quis considerat ?
  16. In profundissimum infernum descendent omnia mea. Putasne saltem ibi erit requies mihi ?
Job 17 Text (KJV)
  1. My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me.
  2. Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?
  3. Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strike hands with me?
  4. For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt them.
  5. He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.
  6. He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.
  7. Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.
  8. Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.
  9. The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
  10. But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you.
  11. My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.
  12. They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.
  13. If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.
  14. I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou are my mother, and my sister.
  15. And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?
  16. They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.
