Job argues with God

10:1 My soul is loathes of my life; I will leave my complaint on myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
10:2 I will say to God, Don’t condemn me; make me know why you fight with me.
10:3 Is [it] good to You that You should oppress, that You should despise the work of Your hands, and shine [on] the counsel of the wicked?
10:4 [Do] You [have] eyes of flesh? or do
you see as a man sees?
10:5 Are Your days as the days of man? are Your years as man’s days,
10:6 That You seek about my iniquity, and search for my sin?
10:7 You know that I am not wicked; and there is no one that can deliver out of Your hand.
10:8 Your hands have made me and fashioned me together all around; yet You do destroy me.
10:9 Remember, I beg You, that You have formed me like clay; and will you make me dust again?
10:10 Did You pour me out like milk, and curdled me like cheese?
10:11 You have clothed me with skin and flesh, and have knitted me with bones and ligaments.
10:12 You have granted me life and favor, and Your will has kept my spirit.
10:13 And these things have You hidden in Your heart: I know that this [was] with You.
10:14 If I sin, then You watched me, and You will not acquit me from my guilt.
10:15 If I am wrong, woe to me! and if I am righteous, I will not lift up my head [being] filled with shame and seeing my pain;
10:16 And if it increased. You hunt me as a fierce lion: and again You show Yourself marvelous in me.
10:17 You renew Your witnesses against me, and increase Your anger with me; changes and war are with me.
10:18 Why then did You bring me out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!
10:19 I would have been as though I had not been; carried from the womb to the grave.

Job desires a little ease before death

10:20 Are not my days few?
then cease, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,
10:21 Before I go and I shall not return, to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;
10:22 A land of oblivion, the darkness of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.
