   1: After this Job opened his mouth, and cursed his day.
   2: And Job spoke, and said,
   3: Let the day perish in which I was born, and the night [in which] it was said, There is a mail child conceived.
   4: Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
   5: Let darkness and the shades of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.
   6: As [for] that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined to the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.
   7: Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.
   8: Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.
   9: Let the stars of its twilight be dark; let it look for light, but [have] none; neither let it see the dawning of the day:
   10: Because it prevented not my birth, nor hid sorrow from my eyes.
   11: Why died I not from the womb? [why] did I [not] expire at the time of my birth?
   12: Why did the knees receive me? or why the breasts that I should be nursed?
   13: For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest,
   14: With kings and counselors of the earth, who built desolate 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 [which] never saw light.
   17: There the wicked cease [from] troubling; and there the weary are at rest.
   18: [There] the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.
   19: The small and great are there; and the servant [is] free from his master.
   20: Why is light given to him that is in misery, and life to 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 roarings are poured out like the waters.
   25: For the thing which I greatly feared hath come upon me, and that which I dreaded hath come to me.
   26: I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.
