The Webster Bible
Job, Chapter 17

   1: My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves [are ready] for me.
   2: [Are there] not mockers with me? and doth not my eye continue in their provocation?
   3: Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who [is] he [that] will strike hands with me?
   4: For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt [them].
   5: He that speaketh flattery to [his] friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.
   6: He hath made me also a by-word of the people; and in former time I was as a tabret.
   7: My eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members [are] as a shade.
   8: Upright [men] shall be astonished at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.
   9: The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
   10: But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I cannot find [one] wise [man] among you.
   11: My days are past, my purposes are broken off, [even] the thoughts of my heart.
   12: They change the night into day: the light [is] short because of darkness.
   13: If I wait, the grave [is] my house: I have made my bed in the darkness.
   14: I have said to corruption, Thou [art] my father: to the worm, [Thou art] my mother, and my sister.
   15: And where [is] now my hope? as for my hope, who will see it?
   16: They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when [our] rest together [is] in the dust.
