Job, Chapter 14

Јовов одговор Софару

Man born of woman [is] of few days, and full of trouble.

He comes forth like a flower, and withers; he also flees as a shadow, and does not stand.

And You open Your eyes on such a one, and bring me into judgment with You.

Who can bring a clean [thing] out of an unclean? No one!

For his days [are] fixed, the number of his months [is] with You, and You have set his bounds so that he cannot pass;

look away from him, so that he may rest until he shall finish his day, as a hireling.

so man lies down and does not rise. Till the heavens [are] no more, they shall not awake, nor be awakened out of their sleep.

If a man die, shall he revive? All the days of my warfare I will wait, until my change comes.

You shall call, and I will answer You; You shall have a desire to the work of Your hands.

For now You number my steps; do You not watch over my sin?

My transgression [is] sealed up in a bag, and You cover over my iniquity.

And surely a falling mountain crumbles away, and the rock moves out of its place.

The waters wear away the stones; the outpouring of it washes the dust of the earth; and You cause the hope of man to perish.

You overpower him forever, and he passes; You change his face, and send him away.

His sons come to honor, and he knows it not; they fall, but he does not mark [it].

But his flesh is pained within him; and his soul mourns over him.
