Ps 78:39  Jas 4:14  Gen 42:36  Jer 15:15  Job 9:25  Job 10:9  Job 10:21-22 

8 The eye that once saw me will look on me no more, your eyes will turn my way, and I shall not be there.
Job 20:9  Ps 37:36  Job 8:18  Job 13:27  Job 14:3  Ps 39:11  Ps 90:8-9 

9 A cloud dissolves and is gone, so no one who goes down to Sheol ever comes up again,

10 ever comes home again, and his house knows that person no more.
Job 8:18  Job 20:9  Ps 103:16  Job 27:21  Job 27:23

Ps 6:6  Job 7:3-4  Job 9:27-28  Ps 77:4 

14 you then frighten me with dreams and terrify me with visions,
Dan 2:1  Gen 40:5-7  Gen 41:8  Judg 7:13-14  Matt 27:19 

15 so that strangling would seem welcome in comparison, yes, death preferable to what I suffer.
2Sam 17:23  Matt 27:5

Job 9:18  Job 14:6  Ps 6:3  Ps 13:1-3  Ps 94:3  Rev 6:10 

20 Suppose I have sinned, what have I done to you, you tireless watcher of humanity? Why do you choose me as your target? Why should I be a burden to you?
Lam 3:12  Ps 36:6  Job 3:24  Job 6:4  Job 7:11-12  Job 9:29-31  Job 13:26
