Geneva Study Bible
   1: My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are mine.
   2: Are there not mockers around me? and doth [not] mine eye abide in their provocation?
   3: Lay down now [a pledge], be thou surety for me with thyself: who is he that striketh hands with me?
   4: For thou hast hidden their heart from understanding; therefore thou wilt not exalt [them].
   5: He that betrayeth friends for a prey -- even the eyes of his children shall fail.
   6: And he hath made me a proverb of the peoples; and I am become one to be spit on in the face.
   7: And mine eye is dim by reason of grief, and all my members are as a shadow.
   8: Upright men [shall be] astonished at this, and the innocent shall be stirred up against the ungodly;
   9: But the righteous shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall increase in strength.
   10: But as for you all, pray come on again; and I shall not find one wise man among you.
   11: My days are past, my purposes are broken off, the cherished thoughts of my heart.
   12: They change the night into day; the light [they imagine] near in presence of the darkness.
   13: If I wait, Sheol is my house; I spread my bed in the darkness:
   14: I cry to the grave, Thou art my father! to the worm, My mother, and my sister!
   15: And where is then my hope? yea, my hope, who shall see it?
   16: It shall go down to the bars of Sheol, when [our] rest shall be together in the dust.
