Job 14 ©
1 Job entreateth God's forbearance in respect of the shortness and troubles of life, 5 and of the certainty of death, which cutteth short man's hope: 13 he wisheth for some place of shelter, where to wait his appointed change. 18 All created beings are subject to corruption.
Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the *stock thereof die in the ground;
Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
But man dieth, and 4wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and nwhere is he?
As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up:
And surely the mountain falling 5cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place.
Thou bprevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: thou cchangest his countenance, and sendest him away.
