Job 7:1-4 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Job: My Suffering Is without End

“Do not human beings have a hard service on earth,
    and are not their days like the days of a laborer?
Like a slave who longs for the shadow,
    and like laborers who look for their wages,
so I am allotted months of emptiness,
    and nights of misery are apportioned to me.
When I lie down I say, ‘When shall I rise?’
    But the night is long,
    and I am full of tossing until dawn.
