The King James Version Bible

Job 30:14-23

  1. They came upon me as a wide breaking in of waters: in the desolation they rolled themselves upon me.

  2. Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the wind: and my welfare passeth away as a cloud.

  3. And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me.

  4. My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my sinews take no rest.

  5. By the great force of my disease is my garment changed: it bindeth me about as the collar of my coat.

  6. He hath cast me into the mire, and I am become like dust and ashes.

  7. I cry unto thee, and thou dost not hear me: I stand up, and thou regardest me not.

  8. Thou art become cruel to me: with thy strong hand thou opposest thyself against me.

  9. Thou liftest me up to the wind; thou causest me to ride upon it, and dissolvest my substance.

  10. For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living.
