Job Speaks of the Finality of Death 14 1“Man, who is born of woman, Is [E]short-lived and full of turmoil. 2“Like a flower he comes forth and withers. He also flees like a shadow and does not remain. 3“You also open Your eyes on him And bring [F]him into judgment with Yourself. 4“Who can make the clean out of the unclean? No one! 5“Since his days are determined, The number of his months is with You; And his limits You have [G]set so that he cannot pass. 6“Turn Your gaze from him that he may [H]rest, Until he [I]fulfills his day like a hired man. 7“For there is hope for a tree, When it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And its shoots will not [J]fail. 8“Though its roots grow old in the ground And its stump dies in the dry soil, 9At the scent of water it will flourish And put forth sprigs like a plant. 10“But man dies and lies prostrate. Man expires, and where is he? 11As water [K]evaporates from the sea, And a river becomes parched and dried up, 12So man lies down and does not rise. Until the heavens are no longer, [L]He will not awake nor be aroused out of [M]his sleep. 13“Oh that You would hide me in [N]Sheol, That You would conceal me until Your wrath returns to You, That You would set a limit for me and remember me! 14“If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my struggle I will wait Until my change comes. 15“You will call, and I will answer You; You will long for the work of Your hands. 16“For now You number my steps, You do not observe my sin. 17“My transgression is sealed up in a bag, And You [O]wrap up my iniquity. 18“But the falling mountain [P]crumbles away, And the rock moves from its place; 19Water wears away stones, Its torrents wash away the dust of the earth; So You destroy man’s hope. 20“You forever overpower him and he departs; You change his appearance and send him away. 21“His sons achieve honor, but he does not know it; Or they become insignificant, but he does not perceive it. 22“But his [Q]body pains him, And he mourns only for himself.”
