The King James Version Bible

Job 14:16-22

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

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

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

  4. 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.

  5. Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away.

  6. His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them.

  7. But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.
