'Why is light given to those in misery, and life to the bitter in soul, to those who long for death that does not come, who search for it more than for hidden treasure, who are filled with gladness and rejoice when they reach the grave?'
Job now has the attitude of "if only it would all end" as he has accepted God's will in giving him birth and the life that he has led so far. But, now, he asks the question of why God does not just "call him home". This is still a struggle in his mind with the sovereignty of God and the fact that God has him going through this for a purpose. At some point in our lives, we have all probably had this same type of struggle. We must remember and realize that it is during the toughest struggles that we learn to rest in God and grow in our faith. Job was thinking that it would all be better if his life on this earth would just end but, once again, he does not know everything that God does. This same type of crying out for life to just end will occur again during the Great Tribulation where, at that time, the people on the earth will cry out for the mountains to crush them to save them from the wrath of God (see Revelation 6:16).
