Bible: Job 3
II. Job’s Dialogue With His Friends

let not God on high regard 13 it,
nor let light shine 14 on it!
3:5 Let darkness and the deepest
let a cloud settle on it;
let whatever blackens the day 17 terrify it!

and search for it 80

whose way is hidden, 88
and whom God has hedged in? 89
and what I feared has come upon me. 96
3:26 I have no ease, 97 I have no quietness;
