1 In the end it was Job who broke the silence and cursed the day of his birth.
Jer 20:14-15  Ps 39:2-3  Ps 106:33  Job 1:22  Job 2:5  Job 2:9-10  Job 3:3 

2 This is what he said:
Judg 18:14 

3 Perish the day on which I was born and the night that told of a boy conceived.
Jer 20:14-18  Job 10:18-19  Jer 15:10 

4 May that day be darkness, may God on high have no thought for it, may no light shine on it.
Acts 27:20  Amos 5:18  Deut 11:12  Exod 10:22-23  Joel 2:2  Matt 27:45  Rev 16:10 

5 May murk and shadow dark as death claim it for their own, clouds hang over it, eclipse swoop down on it.
Job 10:21-22  Ps 23:4  Isa 9:2  Jer 13:16  Job 28:3  Jer 2:6  Job 24:17 

6 See! Let obscurity seize on it, from the days of the year let it be excluded, into the reckoning of the months not find its way.

7 And may that night be sterile, devoid of any cries of joy!
Isa 13:20-22  Isa 24:8  Jer 7:34  Rev 18:22-23 

8 Let it be cursed by those who curse certain days and are ready to rouse Leviathan.
Job 41:1  Job 41:10  2Chr 35:25  Amos 5:16  Jer 9:17-18  Job 41:25  Mark 5:38 

9 Dark be the stars of its morning, let it wait in vain for light and never see the opening eyes of dawn.
Job 41:18  Jer 8:15  Jer 13:16  Job 30:26 

10 Since it would not shut the doors of the womb on me to hide sorrow from my eyes.
1Sam 1:5  Eccl 6:3-5  Eccl 11:10  Gen 20:18  Gen 29:31  Jer 20:17  Job 6:2-3 

11 Why was I not still-born, or why did I not perish as I left the womb?
Job 10:18-19  Hos 9:14  Isa 46:3  Jer 15:10  Ps 22:9-10  Ps 58:8  Ps 71:6 

12 Why were there knees to receive me, breasts for me to suck?
Gen 30:3  Isa 66:12  Gen 50:23  Ezek 16:4-5 

13 Now I should be lying in peace, wrapped in a restful slumber,
Eccl 6:3-5  Eccl 9:10  Job 7:8-10  Job 7:21  Job 10:22  Job 14:10-12  Job 17:13 

14 with the kings and high viziers of earth who have built their dwellings in desolate places,
Job 15:28  Isa 14:10-16  1Kgs 2:10  1Kgs 11:43  Eccl 8:8  Ezek 26:20  Ezek 27:18-32 

15 or with princes who have quantities of gold and silver cramming their tombs;
1Kgs 10:27  Isa 2:7  Job 12:21  Job 22:25  Job 27:16-17  Num 22:18  Zech 9:3 

16 or, put away like an abortive child, I should not have existed, like little ones that never see the light.
Ps 58:8  1Cor 15:8  Eccl 6:3 

17 Down there, the wicked bustle no more, there the weary rest.
Rev 14:13  Heb 4:9  Heb 4:11  Isa 57:1-2  Job 14:13  Job 17:16  2Pet 2:8 

18 Prisoners, all left in peace, hear no more the shouts of the oppressor.
Job 39:7  Exod 5:6-8  Exod 5:15-19  Isa 14:3-4  Judg 4:3 

19 High and low are there together, and the slave is free of his master.
Eccl 8:8  Eccl 12:5  Eccl 12:7  Heb 9:27  Job 30:23  Luke 16:22-23  Ps 49:2 

20 Why give light to a man of grief? Why give life to those bitter of heart,
Jer 20:18  Job 7:15-16  1Sam 1:10  Prov 31:6  2Kgs 4:27  Job 3:16  Job 6:9 

21 who long for a death that never comes, and hunt for it more than for buried treasure?
Rev 9:6  Prov 2:4  1Kgs 19:4  Jonah 4:3  Jonah 4:8  Num 11:15 

22 They would be glad to see the grave-mound and shout with joy if they reached the tomb.

23 Why give light to one who does not see his way, whom God shuts in all alone?
Job 19:8  Lam 3:7  Isa 40:27  Hos 2:6  Job 12:14  Job 19:6  Job 19:12 

24 My only food is sighs, and my groans pour out like water.
Ps 102:9  Ps 38:8  Ps 42:3-4  Ps 80:5  Isa 59:11  Job 6:7  Job 7:19 

25 Whatever I fear comes true, whatever I dread befalls me.
Job 1:5  Job 30:15  Job 31:23 

26 For me, there is no calm, no peace; my torments banish rest.
Job 7:14  Job 27:9  Ps 143:11
