Job 17:14
I have said to corruption, ‘Thou art my father’; to the worm, ‘Thou art my mother and my sister.’
If I have said to corruption, Thou art my father; To the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister;
If I call out to the pit (grave), ‘You are my father’; And to the worm [that feeds on decay], ‘You are my mother and my sister [because I will soon be closest to you],’
If I say to the grave and corruption, You are my father, and to the worm [that feeds on decay], You are my mother and my sister [because I will soon be closest to you],
I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.
I’ve called corruption “my father,” the worm, “my mother and sister.”
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to worms, ‘You are my mother and sister,’
Then I could greet the grave as my father and say to the worms, “Hello, mother and sisters!”
I cry to the grave, Thou art my father! to the worm, My mother, and my sister!
If I have said to rottenness: Thou art my father; to worms, my mother and my sister.
I might say to the grave, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worms, ‘my mother’ or ‘my sister.’
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father’, and to the worm, ‘My mother’, or ‘My sister’,
if I say to the ·grave [L pit], ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘You are my mother’ or ‘You are my sister,’
I shall say to corruption, Thou art my father, and to the worm, Thou art my mother and my sister.
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘You are my mother and sister,’
I will call the grave my father, and the worms that eat me I will call my mother and my sisters.
and say to corruption: You are my father, and to the maggot: My mother or my sister,
I might say to the grave, ‘You are my father.’ And I might say to the worm, ‘You are my mother’ or ‘You are my sister.’
if I call out to the Pit, ‘You’re my father!’ or say to the worm, ‘My mother!’ or ‘My sister!’
I have said to the pit, Thou art my father; to the worms, my mother, and my sister.
I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.
I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.
if I call to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ to the maggot, ‘You are my mother or my sister,’
“If I die, I go out into darkness, and call the grave my father, and the worm my mother and my sister.
“Maybe you’d all like to start over, to try it again, the bunch of you. So far I haven’t come across one scrap of wisdom in anything you’ve said. My life’s about over. All my plans are smashed, all my hopes are snuffed out— My hope that night would turn into day, my hope that dawn was about to break. If all I have to look forward to is a home in the graveyard, if my only hope for comfort is a well-built coffin, If a family reunion means going six feet under, and the only family that shows up is worms, Do you call that hope? Who on earth could find any hope in that? No. If hope and I are to be buried together, I suppose you’ll all come to the double funeral!”
I have said to the pit, ‘You are my father’; to the worm, ‘You are my mother and my sister.’
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘You are my mother and sister,’
If I am to say to the pit, “You are my father,” and to the worm “my mother,” “my sister,”
If I call to the pit, ‘You are my father’; To the worm, ‘my mother and my sister’;
if I say to the grave, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘You are my mother’ or ‘You are my sister,’
If I cry to corruption, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My Mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
Suppose I say to the grave, ‘You are like a father to me.’ And suppose I say to its worms, ‘You are like a mother or sister to me.’
if I say to corruption, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother’ or ‘My sister,’
if I say to corruption, “You are my father,” and to the worm, “My mother” or “My sister”.
If I say to corruption, ‘You are my father,’ And to the worm, ‘You are my mother and my sister,’
If I say to the grave, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother and my sister,’
What if I call the grave my father, and the maggot my mother or my sister?
if I say to the Pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
if I say to the Pit, “You are my father”, and to the worm, “My mother”, or “My sister”,
if I say to the Pit, “You are my father”, and to the worm, “My mother”, or “My sister”,
if I say to the Pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
I have said to Shachat, thou art avi; to the worm, thou art immi, and achoti.
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’ and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
If I speak to my burial pit, calling it “Father,” and to the worms in the earth, calling them “Mother” and “Sister,”
If I have said to corruption, ‘You are my father;’ to the worm, ‘My mother,’ and ‘my sister;’
I said to rot (And I shall say to rot), Thou art my father; and to worms, Ye be my mother, and my sister.
To corruption I have called: -- `Thou [art] my father.' `My mother' and `my sister' -- to the worm.
