Darkness and Shadow of Death – Job 3


Job 3:1 After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.  

Job 3:2 And Job spake, and said, Job 3:3 Let the day perish  wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said,  There is a man child conceived. 

Job 3:4 Let that day be  darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the  light shine upon it. 

Job 3:5 Let darkness and the shadow of  death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of  the day terrify it. 

Job 3:6 As for that night, let darkness seize  upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it  not come into the number of the months. 

Job 3:7 Lo, let that  night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein. 

Job 3:8 Let  them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up  their mourning. 

Job 3:9 Let the stars of the twilight thereof be  dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see  the dawning of the day: 

Job 3:10 Because it shut not up the  doors of my mother’s womb, nor hid sorrow from mine  eyes. 

Job 3:11 Why died I not from the womb? why did I  not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly? 

Job 3:12  Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I  should suck? 

Job 3:13 For now should I have lain still and  been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest,  

Job 3:14 With kings and counsellors of the earth, which built  desolate places for themselves; 

Job 3:15 Or with princes that  had gold, who filled their houses with silver: 

Job 3:16 Or as  an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which  never saw light. 

Job 3:17 There the wicked cease from  troubling; and there the weary be at rest. 

Job 3:18 There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the  oppressor. 

Job 3:19 The small and great are there; and the  servant is free from his master. 

Job 3:20 Wherefore is light  given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in  soul; 

Job 3:21 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and  dig for it more than for hid treasures; 

Job 3:22 Which rejoice  exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?   

Job 3:23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and  whom God hath hedged in? 

Job 3:24 For my sighing cometh  before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters.  

Job 3:25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon  me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. 

Job 3:26  I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet;  yet trouble came. KJV
