10:1  My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
10:2  I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.
10:3  Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
10:4  Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?
10:5  Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man's days,
10:6  That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?
10:7  Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.
10:8  Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.
10:9  Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?
10:10  Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?
10:11  Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.
10:12  Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.
10:13  And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.
10:14  If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.
10:15  If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction;
10:16  For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
10:17  Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.
10:18  Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!
10:19  I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.
10:20  Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,
10:21  Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;
10:22  A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.
