Hi Duane.

Here we see Job wishes he was never born.

Job 3:12-19. Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?

Here's verse 14 which is in questioning. Let's take it with verse 13.

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

With kings and counsellors of the earth, which built desolate places for themselves;)

Job pictures death as annihilating, All sleep equally in the grave. Kings, counsellors and prisoners and servants. ect..

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

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

There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.


THE SMALL AND GREAT ARE THERE; and the servant is free from his master.

Job 3:19-22. The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master.

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

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

Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?

Job cursed the day he was born but he never cursed God.
