The King James Version Bible

Job 14:11-19

  1. As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up:

  2. So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.

  3. O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!

  4. If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.

  5. Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

  6. For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin?

  7. My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity.

  8. And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place.

  9. The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man.
