Job 3:20-26 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

20 “Why is light given to one in misery,
    and life to the bitter in soul,
21 who long for death, but it does not come,
    and dig for it more than for hidden treasures;
22 who rejoice exceedingly,
    and are glad when they find the grave?
23 Why is light given to one who cannot see the way,
    whom God has fenced in?
24 For my sighing comes like[a] my bread,
    and my groanings are poured out like water.
25 Truly the thing that I fear comes upon me,
    and what I dread befalls me.
26 I am not at ease, nor am I quiet;
    I have no rest; but trouble comes.”
