Job 3:20-23

20-23"Why does God bother giving light to the miserable,

why bother keeping bitter people alive,

Those who want in the worst way to die, and can't,

who can't imagine anything better than death,

Who count the day of their death and burial

the happiest day of their life?

What's the point of life when it doesn't make sense,

when God blocks all the roads to meaning?

24-26"Instead of bread I get groans for my supper,

then leave the table and vomit my anguish.

The worst of my fears has come true,

what I've dreaded most has happened.

My repose is shattered, my peace destroyed.

No rest for me, ever—death has invaded life."
