1 "My spirit is consumed, my days are extinct, And the grave is ready for me.

1 רוּחִ֣י חֻ֭בָּלָה יָמַ֥י נִזְעָ֗כוּ קְבָרִ֥ים לִֽי׃

2 Surely there are mockers with me, My eye dwells on their provocation.

2 אִם־לֹ֣א הֲ֭תֻלִים עִמָּדִ֑י וּ֝בְהַמְּרֹותָ֗ם3 תָּלַ֥ן עֵינִֽי׃

3 "Now give a pledge, be collateral for me with yourself. Who is there who will strike hands with me?

3 שִֽׂימָה־נָּ֭א עָרְבֵ֣נִי עִמָּ֑ךְ מִֽי ה֝֗וּא לְיָדִ֥י יִתָּקֵֽעַ׃

4 For you have hidden their heart from understanding, Therefore shall you not exalt them.

4 כִּֽי־לִ֭בָּם צָפַ֣נְתָּ מִּשָּׂ֑כֶל3 עַל־כֵּ֝֗ן לֹ֣א תְרֹמֵֽם׃

5 He who denounces his friends for a prey, Even the eyes of his children shall fail.

5 לְ֭חֵלֶק יַגִּ֣יד רֵעִ֑ים וְעֵינֵ֖י בָנָ֣יו תִּכְלֶֽנָה׃

6 "But he has made me a byword of the people. They spit in my face.

6 וְֽ֭הִצִּגַנִי לִמְשֹׁ֣ל עַמִּ֑ים וְתֹ֖פֶת לְפָנִ֣ים אֶֽהְיֶֽה׃

7 My eye also is dim by reason of sorrow. All my members are as a shadow.

7 וַתֵּ֣כַהּ מִכַּ֣עַשׂ עֵינִ֑י וִֽיצֻרַ֖י כַּצֵּ֣ל כֻּלָּֽם׃

8 Upright men shall be astonished at this. The innocent shall stir up himself against the godless.

8 יָשֹׁ֣מּוּ יְשָׁרִ֣ים עַל־זֹ֑את וְ֝נָקִ֗י עַל־חָנֵ֥ף יִתְעֹרָֽר׃

9 Yet shall the righteous hold on his way. He who has clean hands shall grow stronger and stronger.

9 וְיֹאחֵ֣ז צַדִּ֣יק דַּרְכֹּ֑ו וּֽטֳהָר־יָ֝דַ֗יִם יֹסִ֥יף אֹֽמֶץ׃

10 But as for you all, come on now again; I shall not find a wise man among you.

10 וְֽאוּלָ֗ם כֻּלָּ֣ם תָּ֭שֻׁבוּ וּבֹ֣אוּ נָ֑א וְלֹֽא־אֶמְצָ֖א בָכֶ֣ם חָכָֽם׃

11 My days are past, my plans are broken off, As are the thoughts of my heart.

11 יָמַ֣י עָ֭בְרוּ זִמֹּתַ֣י נִתְּק֑וּ מֹ֖ורָשֵׁ֣י לְבָבִֽי׃

12 They change the night into day, Saying 'The light is near' in the presence of darkness.

12 לַ֭יְלָה לְיֹ֣ום יָשִׂ֑ימוּ אֹ֝֗ור קָרֹ֥וב מִפְּנֵי־חֹֽשֶׁךְ׃

13 If I look for Sheol as my house, If I have spread my couch in the darkness,

13 אִם־אֲ֭קַוֶּה שְׁאֹ֣ול בֵּיתִ֑י בַּ֝חֹ֗שֶׁךְ רִפַּ֥דְתִּי יְצוּעָֽי׃

14 If I have said to corruption, 'You are my father;' To the worm, 'My mother,' and 'my sister;'

14 לַשַּׁ֣חַת קָ֭רָאתִי אָ֣בִי אָ֑תָּה אִמִּ֥י וַ֝אֲחֹתִ֗י לָֽרִמָּֽה׃

15 Where then is my hope? As for my hope, who shall see it?

15 וְ֭אַיֵּה אֵפֹ֣ו תִקְוָתִ֑י וְ֝תִקְוָתִ֗י מִ֣י יְשׁוּרֶֽנָּה׃

16 Shall it go down with me to the gates of Sheol, Or descend together into the dust?"

16 בַּדֵּ֣י שְׁאֹ֣ל תֵּרַ֑דְנָה אִם־יַ֖חַד עַל־עָפָ֣ר נָֽחַת׃
