Job 14 ©
Job entreateth God's forbearance in respect of the shortness and troubles of life, and of the certainty of death, which cutteth short man's hope: he wisheth for some place of shelter, where to wait his appointed change. 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.
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.
