Job 14:11-13 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.
13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!



Job 14:11-13 Good News Translation (GNT)

11 Like rivers that stop running,
and lakes that go dry,
12 people die, never to rise.
They will never wake up while the sky endures;
they will never stir from their sleep.
13 I wish you would hide me in the world of the dead;
let me be hidden until your anger is over,
and then set a time to remember me.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

11 Job is saying that things come to ends just like rivers dry up. Life ends in death. We can however have eternal life thru Jesus being our Lord.

12 We will rise on judgment day some of us rise with Christ but some will rise to be cast into hell. The idea of death being the end may be popular but is not true.

13 Job wanted to be dead because life was only bringing him pain. Job was trying to end his life but was asking the Lord to take it from him.
