Matthew 26:24

The Son of Man is going away, just as it has been written about him. How terrible it will be for that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for him if he had never been born."

Ecclesiastes 4:2-3

So I commended the dead who had already died as being happier than the living who are still alive. Better than both of them is someone who has not yet been born, because he hasn't experienced evil on earth.

Job 3:1-19

After this, Job spoke up solemnly, cursing the day he was born. This is what Job said: "Let the day when I was born be annihilated, along with the night when it was announced, "It's a boy!'read more.
Let that day be dark; let God above not care about it; let no light shine over it. Let darkness and deep gloom reclaim it; let clouds settle down on it; let blackness in mid-day terrify it. Let darkness carry that night away; let it not take its place joyfully among the days of the year; let it not be entered into the calendar. "Yes, let that night be barren; let it not appear with its joyful shout. Let whoever curses days curse it those who are ready to awaken monsters. Let the stars of its evening twilight be dark; let it hope for light but let there be none; let it not see the breaking rays of the dawn. "Because that night refused to shut the doors of my mother's womb; it failed to keep me from seeing this trouble. Why didn't I die while I was still in the womb, or die while I was being born? Why was there a lap to hold me, and why were there breasts to nurse me? "If I had died, I would be lying down by now, undisturbed, asleep, and at rest, along with kings and counselors of the earth, who used to build for themselves what are now only ruins, or princes who amassed gold for themselves, and who kept filling their houses with silver. "Or why was I not buried like a stillborn child, like babies who never saw the light? In that place, the wicked stop causing trouble, and there, those whose strength is exhausted are at rest. In that place, those who once were prisoners will be at ease together; they won't hear the voice of oppressors. The unimportant and the important are both there, and the servant is free from his master.

Job 3:16

"Or why was I not buried like a stillborn child, like babies who never saw the light?

Job 10:19

as if I had never existed; carried from the womb to the grave.

How terrible for me, my mother, that you gave birth to me, a man of strife and contention for the whole land! I've neither lent nor borrowed, yet everyone curses me.

Mark 14:21

For the Son of Man is going away, just as it has been written about him, but how terrible it will be for that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for him if he had never been born."
