Geneva Study Bible
   1: After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.
   2: And Job answered and said:
   3: Let the day perish wherein I was born, And the night which said, There is a man-child conceived.
   4: Let that day be darkness; Let not God from above seek for it, Neither let the light shine upon it.
   5: Let darkness and the shadow of death claim it for their own; Let a cloud dwell upon it; Let all that maketh black the day terrify it.
   6: As for that night, let thick darkness seize upon it: Let it not rejoice among the days of the year; Let it not come into the number of the months.
   7: Lo, let that night be barren; Let no joyful voice come therein.
   8: Let them curse it that curse the day, Who are ready to rouse up leviathan.
   9: Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark: Let it look for light, but have none; Neither let it behold the eyelids of the morning:
   10: Because it shut not up the doors of my [mother's] womb, Nor hid trouble from mine eyes.
   11: Why died I not from the womb? Why did I not give up the ghost when my mother bare me?
   12: Why did the knees receive me? Or why the breast, that I should suck?
   13: For now should I have lain down and been quiet; I should have slept; then had I been at rest,
   14: With kings and counsellors of the earth, Who built up waste places for themselves;
   15: Or with princes that had gold, Who filled their houses with silver:
   16: Or as a hidden untimely birth I had not been, As infants that never saw light.
   17: There the wicked cease from troubling; And there the weary are at rest.
   18: There the prisoners are at ease together; They hear not the voice of the taskmaster.
   19: The small and the great are there: And the servant is free from his master.
   20: Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, And life unto the bitter in soul;
   21: Who long for death, but it cometh not, And dig for it more than for hid treasures;
   22: Who rejoice exceedingly, And are glad, when they can find the grave?
   23: [Why is light given] to a man whose way is hid, And whom God hath hedged in?
   24: For my sighing cometh before I eat, And my groanings are poured out like water.
   25: For the thing which I fear cometh upon me, And that which I am afraid of cometh unto me.
   26: I am not at ease, neither am I quiet, neither have I rest; But trouble cometh.
