1898 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
1 Job intreateth God for favour, by the shortness of life, and certainty of death. 7 Though life once lost be irrecoverable, yet he waiteth for his change. 16 By sin the creature is subject to corruption.
14:1 ¶ Man, born of woman! Of few days, and full of trouble!
14:2 As a flower he hath gone forth, and is cut off, And he fleeth as a shadow and standeth not.

14:4 Who giveth a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.
14:5 If determined are his days, The number of his months [are] with Thee, His limit Thou hast made, And he passeth not over;
14:6 Look away from off him that he may cease, Till he enjoy as an hireling his day.
14:7 For there is of a tree hope, if it be cut down, That again it doth change, That its tender branch doth not cease.
14:8 If its root becometh old in the earth, And its stem doth die in the dust,
14:9 From the fragrance of water it doth flourish, And hath made a crop as a plant.
14:10 And a man dieth, and becometh weak, And man expireth, and where [is] he?
14:11 Waters have gone away from a sea, And a river becometh waste and dry.
14:12 And man hath lain down, and riseth not, Till the wearing out of the heavens they awake not, Nor are roused from their sleep.
14:13 O that in Sheol Thou wouldest conceal me, Hide me till the turning of Thine anger, Set for me a limit, and remember me.
14:14 If a man diethdoth he revive? All days of my warfare I wait, till my change come.
14:15 Thou dost call, and II answer Thee; To the work of Thy hands Thou hast desire.
14:16 But now, my steps Thou numberest, Thou dost not watch over my sin.
14:17 Sealed up in a bag [is] my transgression, And Thou sewest up mine iniquity.
14:18 And yet, a falling mountain wasteth away, And a rock is removed from its place.
14:19 Stones have waters worn away, Their outpourings wash away the dust of earth, And the hope of man Thou hast destroyed.
14:20 Thou prevailest [over] him for ever, and he goeth, He is changing his countenance, And Thou sendest him away.
14:21 Honoured are his sons, and he knoweth not; And they are little, and he attendeth not to them.
14:22 Onlyhis flesh for him is pained, And his soul for him doth mourn.'
