Does Job 7:9 contradict the Bible’s teaching about resurrection? I.e. had Job given up hope? (7:8–10)

 The Scriptures teach that all people will be raised corporally from the tomb (cf. Dan. 12:2; 1 Cor. 15:22; Rev. 20:4–6). In fact, Jesus said that one day “all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth” (John 5:28–29). But Job seems to say just the opposite, when he penned: “he who goes down to the grave does not come up” (cf. also Job 14:12; Isa. 26:14; Amos 8:14).

Job 7:9

NKJV - 9 As the cloud disappears and vanishes away, So he who goes down to the grave does not come up.
