1
My spirit is broken. My days are extinguished. A graveyard awaits me.
2
Surely mockers surround me and my eyes must gaze at their rebellion.
3
Make arrangements! Put up security for me. Who [else] will be my sponsor?
4
You have closed their minds to understanding, therefore You will not honor [them].
5
If a man informs on his friends for a price, the eyes of his children will fail.
6
He has made me an object of scorn to the people; I have become a man people spit at.
7
My eyes have grown dim from grief, and my whole body has become but a shadow.
8
The upright are appalled at this, and the innocent are roused against the godless.
9
Yet the righteous person will hold to his way, and the one whose hands are clean will grow stronger.
10
But come back [and try] again, all of you. I will not find a wise man among you.
11
My days have slipped by; my plans have been ruined, even the things dear to my heart.
12
They turned night into day and [made] light [seem] near in the face of darkness.
13

14
and say to the Pit: You are my father, and to the worm: My mother or my sister,
15
where then is my hope? Who can see [any] hope for me?
16
Will it go down to the gates of Sheol, or will we descend together to the dust?
