Chapter 17

1My spirit hath been destroyed, My days extinguished -- graves [are] for me. 2If not -- mockeries [are] with me. And in their provocations mine eye lodgeth. 3Place, I pray Thee, my pledge with Thee; Who is he that striketh hand with me? 4For their heart Thou hast hidden From understanding, Therefore Thou dost not exalt them. 5For a portion he sheweth friendship, And the eyes of his sons are consumed. 6And he set me up for a proverb of the peoples, And a wonder before them I am. 7And dim from sorrow is mine eye, And my members as a shadow all of them. 8Astonished are the upright at this, And the innocent against the profane Stirreth himself up. 9And the righteous layeth hold [on] his way, And the clean of hands addeth strength, And -- dumb are they all. 10Return, and come in, I pray you, And I find not among you a wise man. 11My days have passed by, My devices have been broken off, The possessions of my heart! 12Night for day they appoint, Light [is] near because of darkness. 13If I wait -- Sheol [is] my house, In darkness I have spread out my couch. 14To corruption I have called: -- `Thou [art] my father.` `My mother` and `my sister` -- to the worm. 15And where [is] now my hope? Yea, my hope, who doth behold it? 16[To] the parts of Sheol ye go down, If together on the dust we may rest.
