Job 13:28-14:6 World English Bible (WEB)
28 though I am decaying like a rotten thing,
like a garment that is moth-eaten.
14 “Man, who is born of a woman,
is of few days, and full of trouble.
2 He grows up like a flower, and is cut down.
He also flees like a shadow, and doesn’t continue.
3 Do you open your eyes on such a one,
and bring me into judgment with you?
4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?
5 Seeing his days are determined,
the number of his months is with you,
and you have appointed his bounds that he can’t pass;
6 Look away from him, that he may rest,
until he shall accomplish, as a hireling, his day.
Job 13:28-14:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
28 While I am decaying like a rotten thing,
Like a garment that is moth-eaten.
Job Speaks of the Finality of Death
14 “Man, who is born of woman,
Is short-lived and full of turmoil.
2 “Like a flower he comes forth and withers.
He also flees like a shadow and does not remain.
3 “You also open Your eyes on him
And bring him into judgment with Yourself.
4 “Who can make the clean out of the unclean?
5 “Since his days are determined,
The number of his months is with You;
And his limits You have set so that he cannot pass.
6 “Turn Your gaze from him that he may rest,
Until he fulfills his day like a hired man.
