Meaning Of Life

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?

– Job 3:20-23

The Message Version (MSG)


20-23 神為何還要費心給痛苦的人照明,為何要留住苦痛人的性命?他們想極了要死,卻死不了,在他們來說,沒有何事比死更好。他們數算自己離世的日子,以自己被埋葬之日為一生最快樂之時。如果神把一切能找到生命意義的事物都取去,如果生存沒有意義,那活著還有什麼用?  

— 伯三20-23
