Job - Chapter 7
1 Is not human life on earth just conscript service? Do we not live a hireling's life?
6 Swifter than a weaver's shuttle my days have passed, and vanished, leaving no hope behind.
10 ever comes home again, and his house knows that person no more.
16 I am wasting away, my life is not unending; leave me then, for my days are but a breath.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
