Job 14:10-14 Good News Translation (GNT)

10 But we die, and that is the end of us;
    we die, and where are we then?

11 Like rivers that stop running,
    and lakes that go dry,
12     people die, never to rise.
They will never wake up while the sky endures;
    they will never stir from their sleep.

13 I wish you would hide me in the world of the dead;
    let me be hidden until your anger is over,
    and then set a time to remember me.
14 If a man dies, can he come back to life?
But I will wait for better times,
    wait till this time of trouble is ended.

Job 14:10-14 New International Version (NIV)

10 But a man dies and is laid low;
    he breathes his last and is no more.
11 As the water of a lake dries up
    or a riverbed becomes parched and dry,
12 so he lies down and does not rise;
    till the heavens are no more, people will not awake
    or be roused from their sleep.

13 “If only you would hide me in the grave
    and conceal me till your anger has passed!
If only you would set me a time
    and then remember me!
14 If someone dies, will they live again?
    All the days of my hard service
    I will wait for my renewal[a] to come.
