Today's word:  “Your hands shaped me and made me. Will you now turn and destroy me?


Job 10


I loathe my very life;
    therefore I will give free rein to my complaint
    and speak out in the bitterness of my soul.


2 I say to God: Do not declare me guilty,
    but tell me what charges you have against me.

3 Does it please you to oppress me,
    to spurn the work of your hands,
    while you smile on the plans of the wicked?

4 Do you have eyes of flesh?
    Do you see as a mortal sees?

5 Are your days like those of a mortal
    or your years like those of a strong man,

6 that you must search out my faults
    and probe after my sin—

7 though you know that I am not guilty
    and that no one can rescue me from your hand?

8 “Your hands shaped me and made me.
    Will you now turn and destroy me?

9 Remember that you molded me like clay.
    Will you now turn me to dust again?

10 Did you not pour me out like milk
    and curdle me like cheese,

11 clothe me with skin and flesh
    and knit me together with bones and sinews?

12 You gave me life and showed me kindness,
    and in your providence watched over my spirit.

13 “But this is what you concealed in your heart,
    and I know that this was in your mind:

14 If I sinned, you would be watching me
    and would not let my offense go unpunished.

15 If I am guilty—woe to me!
    Even if I am innocent, I cannot lift my head,
for I am full of shame
    and drowned in[a] my affliction.
