Job 14:11-12 King James Version (KJV)
11 As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up:
12 So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.

Job 14:11-12 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

11 As water disappears from a lake
and a river becomes parched and dry,
12 so people lie down never to rise again.
They will not wake up until the heavens are no more;
they will not stir from their sleep.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

11 Rivers sometimes dry up and sometimes they move elsewhere, these are known as dead rivers. We don’t want to become a dead river but let the Living Water keep flowing thru us. Job was starting to become dead in spirit because of his situation. The thing we have to help us Job didn’t have is scripture the church and the Holy Spirit dwelling in us, Job didn’t have this but had faith.

12 It isn’t true that people die and not rise again, people don’t often come back from the dead but there is life or death after this life but Job didn’t have a way to know about this. The Judgment is often seen as after the world but actually it would be in eternity where time is both endless and there is no time. Death was often in those times seen as a sleep until the world was over this could be the truth and the way God does things.
