Job 7 in The Message
“I’m given a life that meanders and goes nowhere--
months of aimlessness; nights of misery.
I’m covered with maggots and scabs.
My skin gets scaly and hard, then oozes with puss….
My days come and go swifter than the click of knitting needles,
And then the yarn runs out--an unfinished life.”
Job’s life was meaningless
He felt meaningless.
An unfinished life...what could be sadder?
