NASB — Job 14 — KJV

Job Speaks of the Finality of Death

  1aMan, who is born of woman,
  Is Ishort-lived and bfull of turmoil.
  2aLike a flower he comes forth and withers.
  He also flees like ba shadow and does not remain.
  3 “You also aopen Your eyes on him
  And bbring Ihim into judgment with Yourself.
  4aWho can make the clean out of the unclean?
  No one!
  5 “Since his days are determined,
  The anumber of his months is with You;
  And his limits You have Iset so that he cannot pass.
  6aTurn Your gaze from him that he may Irest,
  Until he IIfulfills his day like a hired man.

Job intreateth God for favour, by the shortness of life, and certainty of death.

1 ¶ Man [that is] born of a woman [is] of few days, and full of trouble. 2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. 3 And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee? 4 Who can bring a clean [thing] out of an unclean? not one. 5 Seeing his days [are] determined, the number of his months [are] with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; 6 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.

[6] Jb 7:1, 16, 19; 10:20; Ps 39:13; Mt 20:1.

Though life once lost be irrecoverable, yet he waiteth for his change.

7 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. 8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; 9 [Yet] through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant. 10 But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where [is] he? 11 [As] the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: 12 So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens [be] no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. 13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! 14 If a man die, shall he live [again]? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. 15 Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

By sin the creature is subject to corruption.

16 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin? 17 My transgression [is] sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity. 18 And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place. 19 The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow [out] of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man. 20 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away. 21 His sons come to honour, and he knoweth [it] not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth [it] not of them. 22 But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.
