Isaiah 38:10-12 International Standard Version (ISV)

10 I said, “Must I leave in the prime of my life?
    Must I be consigned to the control[a] of Sheol?[b]
        Bitter are[c] my years!”
11 I said, “I won’t see the Lord[d] in the land of the living;
    and[e] I’ll no longer observe human beings
        among the denizens of the grave.[f]
12 My house has been plucked up and vanishes[g] from me
    like a shepherd’s tent;
like a weaver, I’ve taken account of[h] my life,
    and he cuts me off from the loom—
        day and night you make an end of me.

Isaiah 38:10-12 New International Version (NIV)

10 I said, “In the prime of my life
    must I go through the gates of death
    and be robbed of the rest of my years?
11 I said, “I will not again see the Lord himself
    in the land of the living;
no longer will I look on my fellow man,
    or be with those who now dwell in this world.
12 Like a shepherd’s tent my house
    has been pulled down and taken from me.
Like a weaver I have rolled up my life,
    and he has cut me off from the loom;
    day and night you made an end of me.
