18~JOB 001|001` There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

18~JOB 001|002` And there were born to him seven sons and three daughters.

18~JOB 001|003` His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.

18~JOB 001|004` And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; 0-p and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.

18~JOB 001|005` And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.

18~JOB 001|006` Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

18~JOB 001|007` And the Lord said to Satan, Whence come you? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

18~JOB 001|008` And the Lord said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

18~JOB 001|009` Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

18~JOB 001|010` Have not you made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? you hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

18~JOB 001|011` But put forth yours hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse you to thy face.

18~JOB 001|012` And the Lord said to Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth yours hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

18~JOB 001|013` And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

18~JOB 001|014` And there came a messenger to Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them:

18~JOB 001|015` And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell you.

18~JOB 001|016` While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell you.

18~JOB 001|017` While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell you.

18~JOB 001|018` While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Your sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

18~JOB 001|019` And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell you.

18~JOB 001|020` Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,

18~JOB 001|021` And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return there: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

18~JOB 001|022` In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

18~JOB 002|001` Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.

18~JOB 002|002` And the Lord said to Satan, From where come you? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

18~JOB 002|003` And the Lord said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although you movedst me against him, to destroy him witho

18~JOB 002|004` And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.

18~JOB 002|005` But put forth yours hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse you to thy face.

18~JOB 002|006` And the Lord said to Satan, Behold, he is in yours hand; but save his life.

18~JOB 002|007` So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to his crown.

18~JOB 002|008` And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.

18~JOB 002|009` Then said his wife to him, Dost you still retain yours integrity? curse God, and die.

18~JOB 002|010` But he said to her, You speaks as one of the foolish women speaks. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

18~JOB 002|011` Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

18~JOB 002|012` And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven.

18~JOB 002|013` So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spoke a word to him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

18~JOB 003|001` After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.

18~JOB 003|002` And Job spoke, and said,

18~JOB 003|003` Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.

18~JOB 003|004` Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.

18~JOB 003|005` Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.

18~JOB 003|006` As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined to the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.

18~JOB 003|007` Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.

18~JOB 003|008` Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.

18~JOB 003|009` Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day:

18~JOB 003|010` Because it shut not up the doors of my mother's womb, nor hid sorrow from mine eyes.

18~JOB 003|011` Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the Ghost when I came out of the belly?

18~JOB 003|012` Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?

18~JOB 003|013` For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest,

18~JOB 003|014` With kings and counsellers of the earth, which built desolate places for themselves;

18~JOB 003|015` Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver:

18~JOB 003|016` Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw light.

18~JOB 003|017` There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.

18~JOB 003|018` There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.

18~JOB 003|019` The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master.

18~JOB 003|020` Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life to the bitter in soul;

18~JOB 003|021` Which long for death, but it comes not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;

18~JOB 003|022` Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?

18~JOB 003|023` Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?

18~JOB 003|024` For my sighing comes before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters.

18~JOB 003|025` For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come to me.

18~JOB 003|026` I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.

18~JOB 004|001` Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,

18~JOB 004|002` If we assay to commune with you, wilt you be grieved? but who can withhold himself from speaking?

18~JOB 004|003` Behold, you hast instructed many, and you hast strengthened the weak hands.

18~JOB 004|004` Your words have upholden him that was falling, and you hast strengthened the feeble knees.

18~JOB 004|005` But now it is come upon you, and you faintest; it toucheth you, and you art troubled.

18~JOB 004|006` Is not this thy fear, thy confidence, thy hope, and the uprightness of thy ways?

18~JOB 004|007` Remember, I pray you, who ever perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off?

18~JOB 004|008` Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

18~JOB 004|009` By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed.

18~JOB 004|010` The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken.

18~JOB 004|011` The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad.

18~JOB 004|012` Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof.

18~JOB 004|013` In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,

18~JOB 004|014` Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.

18~JOB 004|015` Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:

18~JOB 004|016` It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,

18~JOB 004|017` Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?

18~JOB 004|018` Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:

18~JOB 004|019` How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?

18~JOB 004|020` They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding it.

18~JOB 004|021` Doth not their excellency which is in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.

18~JOB 005|001` Call now, if there be any that will answer you; and to which of the saints wilt you turn?

18~JOB 005|002` For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy kills the silly one.

18~JOB 005|003` I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his 0-p habitation.

18~JOB 005|004` His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.

18~JOB 005|005` Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and takes it even out of the thorns, and the robber swallows up their substance.

18~JOB 005|006` Although affliction comes not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;

18~JOB 005|007` Yet man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

18~JOB 005|008` I would seek to God, and to God would I commit my cause:

18~JOB 005|009` Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:

18~JOB 005|010` Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sends waters upon the fields:

18~JOB 005|011` To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

18~JOB 005|012` He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.

18~JOB 005|013` He takes the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.

18~JOB 005|014` They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night.

18~JOB 005|015` But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.

18~JOB 005|016` So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stops her mouth.

18~JOB 005|017` Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects: therefore despise not you the chastening of the Almighty:

18~JOB 005|018` For he maketh sore, and bind up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

18~JOB 005|019` He shall deliver you in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch you.

18~JOB 005|020` In famine he shall redeem you from death: and in war from the power of the sword.

18~JOB 005|021` You shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt you be afraid of destruction when it comes.

18~JOB 005|022` At destruction and famine you shalt laugh: neither shalt you be afraid of the beasts of the earth.

18~JOB 005|023` For you shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.

18~JOB 005|024` And you shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and you shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.

18~JOB 005|025` You shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and yours offspring as the grass of the earth.

18~JOB 005|026` You shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn comes in his season.

18~JOB 005|027` Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know you it for thy good.

18~JOB 006|001` But Job answered and said,

18~JOB 006|002` Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in 0-p the balances together!

18~JOB 006|003` For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up.

18~JOB 006|004` For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit: the terrors of God do set themselves in array against me.

18~JOB 006|005` Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder?

18~JOB 006|006` Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?

18~JOB 006|007` The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.

18~JOB 006|008` Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!

18~JOB 006|009` Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!

18~JOB 006|010` Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

18~JOB 006|011` What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?

18~JOB 006|012` Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?

18~JOB 006|013` Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?

18~JOB 006|014` To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.

18~JOB 006|015` My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;

18~JOB 006|016` Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid:

18~JOB 006|017` What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.

18~JOB 006|018` The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.

18~JOB 006|019` The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.

18~JOB 006|020` They were confounded because they had hoped; they came there, and were ashamed.

18~JOB 006|021` For now you are nothing; you see my casting down, and are afraid.

18~JOB 006|022` Did I say, Bring to me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?

18~JOB 006|023` Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?

18~JOB 006|024` Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

18~JOB 006|025` How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?

18~JOB 006|026` Do you imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?

18~JOB 006|027` You, you overwhelm the fatherless, and you dig a pit for your friend.

18~JOB 006|028` Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident to you if I lie.

18~JOB 006|029` Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it.

18~JOB 006|030` Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?

18~JOB 007|001` Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?

18~JOB 007|002` As a servant earnestly desires the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:

18~JOB 007|003` So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.

18~JOB 007|004` When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro to the dawning of the day.

18~JOB 007|005` My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.

18~JOB 007|006` My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.

18~JOB 007|007` O remember that my life is wind: mine eye shall no more see good.

18~JOB 007|008` The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: yours eyes are upon me, and I am not.

18~JOB 007|009` As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more.

18~JOB 007|010` He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.

18~JOB 007|011` Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.

18~JOB 007|012` Am I a sea, or a whale, that you settest a watch over me?

18~JOB 007|013` When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint;

18~JOB 007|014` Then you scarest me with dreams, and terrify me through visions:

18~JOB 007|015` So that my soul choose strangling, and death rather than my life.

18~JOB 007|016` I loathe it; I would not live always: let me alone; for my days are vanity.

18~JOB 007|017` What is man, that you shouldest magnify him? and that you shouldest set yours heart upon him?

18~JOB 007|018` And that you shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

18~JOB 007|019` How long wilt you not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?

18~JOB 007|020` I have sinned; what shall I do to you, O you preserver of men? why hast you set me as a mark against you, so that I am a burden to myself?

18~JOB 007|021` And why dost you not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and you shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be.

18~JOB 008|001` Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

18~JOB 008|002` How long wilt you speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind?

18~JOB 008|003` Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

18~JOB 008|004` If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;

18~JOB 008|005` If you wouldest seek to God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;

18~JOB 008|006` If you wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for you, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.

18~JOB 008|007` Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.

18~JOB 008|008` For inquire, I pray you, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:

18~JOB 008|009` (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)

18~JOB 008|010` Shall not they teach you, and tell you, and utter words out of their heart?

18~JOB 008|011` Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?

18~JOB 008|012` Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.

18~JOB 008|013` So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:

18~JOB 008|014` Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.

18~JOB 008|015` He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.

18~JOB 008|016` He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.

18~JOB 008|017` His roots are wrapped about the heap, and sees the place of stones.

18~JOB 008|018` If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen you.

18~JOB 008|019` Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.

18~JOB 008|020` Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:

18~JOB 008|021` Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.

18~JOB 008|022` They that hate you shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.

18~JOB 009|001` Then Job answered and said,

18~JOB 009|002` I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?

18~JOB 009|003` If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.

18~JOB 009|004` He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered?

18~JOB 009|005` Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.

18~JOB 009|006` Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

18~JOB 009|007` Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and seals up the stars.

18~JOB 009|008` Which alone spreads out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.

18~JOB 009|009` Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

18~JOB 009|010` Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

18~JOB 009|011` Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.

18~JOB 009|012` Behold, he takes away, who can hinder him? who will say to him, What doest you?

18~JOB 009|013` If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.

18~JOB 009|014` How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him?

18~JOB 009|015` Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge.

18~JOB 009|016` If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened to my voice.

18~JOB 009|017` For he breaks me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.

18~JOB 009|018` He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.

18~JOB 009|019` If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead?

18~JOB 009|020` If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.

18~JOB 009|021` Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.

18~JOB 009|022` This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.

18~JOB 009|023` If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.

18~JOB 009|024` The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covers the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

18~JOB 009|025` Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.

18~JOB 009|026` They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.

18~JOB 009|027` If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself:

18~JOB 009|028` I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that you wilt not hold me innocent.

18~JOB 009|029` If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?

18~JOB 009|030` If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;

18~JOB 009|031` Yet shalt you plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me.

18~JOB 009|032` For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.

18~JOB 009|033` Neither is there any daysman between us, that might lay his hand upon us both.

18~JOB 009|034` Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me:

18~JOB 009|035` Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me.

18~JOB 010|001` My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

18~JOB 010|002` I will say to God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore you contendest with me.

18~JOB 010|003` Is it good to you that you shouldest oppress, that you shouldest despise the work of yours hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

18~JOB 010|004` Have you eyes of flesh? or sees you as man sees?

18~JOB 010|005` Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man's days,

18~JOB 010|006` That you enquirest after mine iniquity, and searches after my sin?

18~JOB 010|007` You knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of yours hand.

18~JOB 010|008` Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet you dost destroy me.

18~JOB 010|009` Remember, I beseech you, that you hast made me as the clay; and wilt you bring me into dust again?

18~JOB 010|010` Have you not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?

18~JOB 010|011` You hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

18~JOB 010|012` You hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

18~JOB 010|013` And these things hast you hid in yours heart: I know that this is with you.

18~JOB 010|014` If I sin, then you markest me, and you wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.

18~JOB 010|015` If I be wicked, woe to me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see you mine affliction;

18~JOB 010|016` For it increaseth. You huntest me as a fierce lion: and again you shewest thyself marvellous upon me.

18~JOB 010|017` You renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest yours indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.

18~JOB 010|018` Wherefore then hast you brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!

18~JOB 010|019` I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.

18~JOB 010|020` Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,

18~JOB 010|021` Before I go where I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;

18~JOB 010|022` A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.

18~JOB 011|001` Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

18~JOB 011|002` Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified?

18~JOB 011|003` Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when you mockest, shall no man make you ashamed?

18~JOB 011|004` For you hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in yours eyes.

18~JOB 011|005` But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against you;

18~JOB 011|006` And that he would shew you the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! know therefore that God exacteth of you less than yours iniquity deserveth.

18~JOB 011|007` Canst you by searching find out God? canst you find out the Almighty to perfection?

18~JOB 011|008` It is as high as heaven; what canst you do? deeper than hell; what canst you know?

18~JOB 011|009` The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.

18~JOB 011|010` If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?

18~JOB 011|011` For he knoweth vain men: he sees wickedness also; will he not then consider it?

18~JOB 011|012` For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.

18~JOB 011|013` If you prepare yours heart, and stretch out yours hands toward him;

18~JOB 011|014` If iniquity be in yours hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.

18~JOB 011|015` For then shalt you lift up thy face without spot; yea, you shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:

18~JOB 011|016` Because you shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:

18~JOB 011|017` And yours age shall be clearer than the noonday: you shalt shine forth, you shalt be as the morning.

18~JOB 011|018` And you shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, you shalt dig about you, and you shalt take thy rest in safety.

18~JOB 011|019` Also you shalt lie down, and none shall make you afraid; yea, many shall make suit to you.

18~JOB 011|020` But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.

18~JOB 012|001` And Job answered and said,

18~JOB 012|002` No doubt but you are the people, and wisdom shall die with you.

18~JOB 012|003` But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these?

18~JOB 012|004` I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who call upon God, and he awnsers him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn.

18~JOB 012|005` He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.

18~JOB 012|006` The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God brings abundantly.

18~JOB 012|007` But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell you:

18~JOB 012|008` Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach you: and the fishes of the sea shall declare to you.

18~JOB 012|009` Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this?

18~JOB 012|010` In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

18~JOB 012|011` Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?

18~JOB 012|012` With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.

18~JOB 012|013` With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.

18~JOB 012|014` Behold, he breaks down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.

18~JOB 012|015` Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sends them out, and they overturn the earth.

18~JOB 012|016` With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his.

18~JOB 012|017` He leadeth counsellers away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools.

18~JOB 012|018` He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.

18~JOB 012|019` He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.

18~JOB 012|020` He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and takes away the understanding of the aged.

18~JOB 012|021` He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.

18~JOB 012|022` He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and brings out to light the shadow of death.

18~JOB 012|023` He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.

18~JOB 012|024` He takes away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causes them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.

18~JOB 012|025` They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.

18~JOB 013|001` Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it.

18~JOB 013|002` What you know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior to you.

18~JOB 013|003` Surely I would speak to the almighty, and I desire to reason with God.

18~JOB 013|004` But you are forgers of lies, you are all physicians of no value.

18~JOB 013|005` O that you would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.

18~JOB 013|006` Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.

18~JOB 013|007` Will you speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?

18~JOB 013|008` Will you accept his person? will you contend for God?

18~JOB 013|009` Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do you so mock him?

18~JOB 013|010` He will surely reprove you, if you do secretly accept persons.

18~JOB 013|011` Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall upon you?

18~JOB 013|012` Your remembrances are like to ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.

18~JOB 013|013` Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will.

18~JOB 013|014` Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?

18~JOB 013|015` Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.

18~JOB 013|016` He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

18~JOB 013|017` Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.

18~JOB 013|018` Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.

18~JOB 013|019` Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.

18~JOB 013|020` Only do not two things to me: then will I not hide myself from you.

18~JOB 013|021` Withdraw yours hand far from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid.

18~JOB 013|022` Then call you, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer you me.

18~JOB 013|023` How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.

18~JOB 013|024` Wherefore hidest you thy face, and holdest me for yours enemy?

18~JOB 013|025` Wilt you break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt you pursue the dry stubble?

18~JOB 013|026` For you writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.

18~JOB 013|027` You puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly to all my paths; you settest a print upon the heels of my feet.

18~JOB 013|028` And he, as a rotten thing, consumes, as a garment that is moth eaten.

18~JOB 014|001` Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.

18~JOB 014|002` He comes forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continues not.

18~JOB 014|003` And dost you open yours eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with you?

18~JOB 014|004` Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.

18~JOB 014|005` Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with you, you hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;

18~JOB 014|006` Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.

18~JOB 014|007` For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

18~JOB 014|008` Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;

18~JOB 014|009` Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.

18~JOB 014|010` But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the Ghost, and where is he?

18~JOB 014|011` As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up:

18~JOB 014|012` So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.

18~JOB 014|013` O that you wouldest hide me in the grave, that you wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that you wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!

18~JOB 014|014` If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.

18~JOB 014|015` You shalt call, and I will answer you: you wilt have a desire to the work of yours hands.

18~JOB 014|016` For now you numberest my steps: dost you not watch over my sin?

18~JOB 014|017` My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and you sewest up mine iniquity.

18~JOB 014|018` And surely the mountain falling comes to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place.

18~JOB 014|019` The waters wear the stones: you washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and you destroyest the hope of man.

18~JOB 014|020` You prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: you changest his countenance, and sends him away.

18~JOB 014|021` His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them.

18~JOB 014|022` But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.

18~JOB 015|001` Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,

18~JOB 015|002` Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind?

18~JOB 015|003` Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches where with he can do no good?

18~JOB 015|004` You, you castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God.

18~JOB 015|005` For thy mouth uttereth yours iniquity, and you choose the tongue of the crafty.

18~JOB 015|006` Thine own mouth condemneth you, and not I: yea, yours own lips testify against you.

18~JOB 015|007` Art you the first man that was born? or wast you made before the hills?

18~JOB 015|008` Have you heard the secret of God? and dost you restrain wisdom to thyself?

18~JOB 015|009` What knowest you, that we know not? what understandest you, which is not in us?

18~JOB 015|010` With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.

18~JOB 015|011` Are the consolations of God small with you? is there any secret thing with you?

18~JOB 015|012` Why doth yours heart carry you away? and what do thy eyes wink at,

18~JOB 015|013` That you turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth?

18~JOB 015|014` What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?

18~JOB 015|015` Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.

18~JOB 015|016` How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?

18~JOB 015|017` I will shew you, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare;

18~JOB 015|018` Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it:

18~JOB 015|019` Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed among them.

18~JOB 015|020` The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.

18~JOB 015|021` A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.

18~JOB 015|022` He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword.

18~JOB 015|023` He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.

18~JOB 015|024` Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.

18~JOB 015|025` For he stretches out his hand against God, and stretches himself against the Almighty.

18~JOB 015|026` He Runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers:

18~JOB 015|027` Because he covers his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks.

18~JOB 015|028` And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps.

18~JOB 015|029` He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth.

18~JOB 015|030` He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.

18~JOB 015|031` Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

18~JOB 015|032` It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green.

18~JOB 015|033` He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive.

18~JOB 015|034` For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.

18~JOB 015|035` They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit.

18~JOB 016|001` Then Job answered and said,

18~JOB 016|002` I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are you all.

18~JOB 016|003` Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth you that you answer?

18~JOB 016|004` I also could speak as you do: if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you.

18~JOB 016|005` But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief.

18~JOB 016|006` Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased?

18~JOB 016|007` But now he hath made me weary: you hast made desolate all my company.

18~JOB 016|008` And you hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me bear witness to my face.

18~JOB 016|009` He tears me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.

18~JOB 016|010` They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me.

18~JOB 016|011` God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.

18~JOB 016|012` I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder: he hath also taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me up for his mark.

18~JOB 016|013` His archers compass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground.

18~JOB 016|014` He breaks me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant.

18~JOB 016|015` I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust.

18~JOB 016|016` My face is foul with weeping, and on my eyelids is the shadow of death;

18~JOB 016|017` Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure.

18~JOB 016|018` O earth, cover not you my blood, and let my cry have no place.

18~JOB 016|019` Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high.

18~JOB 016|020` My friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears to God.

18~JOB 016|021` O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour!

18~JOB 016|022` When a few years are come, then I shall go the way where I shall not return.

18~JOB 017|001` My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me.

18~JOB 017|002` Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?

18~JOB 017|003` Lay down now, put me in a surety with you; who is he that will strike hands with me?

18~JOB 017|004` For you hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt you not exalt them.

18~JOB 017|005` He that speaks flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.

18~JOB 017|006` He hath made me also a byword of the people; and before I was as a tabret.

18~JOB 017|007` Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.

18~JOB 017|008` Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.

18~JOB 017|009` The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.

18~JOB 017|010` But as for you all, do you return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you.

18~JOB 017|011` My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.

18~JOB 017|012` They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.

18~JOB 017|013` If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.

18~JOB 017|014` I have said to corruption, You art my father: to the worm, You art my mother, and my sister.

18~JOB 017|015` And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?

18~JOB 017|016` They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

18~JOB 018|001` Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

18~JOB 018|002` How long will it be ere you make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak.

18~JOB 018|003` Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?

18~JOB 018|004` He tears himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for you? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?

18~JOB 018|005` You, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

18~JOB 018|006` The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.

18~JOB 018|007` The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.

18~JOB 018|008` For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.

18~JOB 018|009` The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.

18~JOB 018|010` The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.

18~JOB 018|011` Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.

18~JOB 018|012` His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.

18~JOB 018|013` It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.

18~JOB 018|014` His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.

18~JOB 018|015` It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

18~JOB 018|016` His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.

18~JOB 018|017` His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.

18~JOB 018|018` He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.

18~JOB 018|019` He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.

18~JOB 018|020` They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.

18~JOB 018|021` Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.

18~JOB 019|001` Then Job answered and said,

18~JOB 019|002` How long will you vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?

18~JOB 019|003` These ten times have you reproached me: you are not ashamed that you make yourselves strange to me.

18~JOB 019|004` And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.

18~JOB 019|005` If indeed you will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:

18~JOB 019|006` Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.

18~JOB 019|007` Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.

18~JOB 019|008` He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.

18~JOB 019|009` He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.

18~JOB 019|010` He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.

18~JOB 019|011` He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counts me to him as one of his enemies.

18~JOB 019|012` His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.

18~JOB 019|013` He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.

18~JOB 019|014` My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.

18~JOB 019|015` They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.

18~JOB 019|016` I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.

18~JOB 019|017` My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.

18~JOB 019|018` You, young children despised me; I arose, and they spoke against me.

18~JOB 019|019` All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.

18~JOB 019|020` My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.

18~JOB 019|021` Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O you my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.

18~JOB 019|022` Why do you persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?

18~JOB 019|023` Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!

18~JOB 019|024` That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!

18~JOB 019|025` For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

18~JOB 019|026` And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

18~JOB 019|027` Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

18~JOB 019|028` But you should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?

18~JOB 019|029` Be you afraid of the sword: for wrath brings the punishments of the sword, that you may know there is a judgment.

18~JOB 020|001` Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

18~JOB 020|002` Therefore do my thoughts cause me to answer, and for this I make haste.

18~JOB 020|003` I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causes me to answer.

18~JOB 020|004` Knowest you not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,

18~JOB 020|005` That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

18~JOB 020|006` Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach to the clouds;

18~JOB 020|007` Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?

18~JOB 020|008` He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.

18~JOB 020|009` The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.

18~JOB 020|010` His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.

18~JOB 020|011` His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.

18~JOB 020|012` Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue;

18~JOB 020|013` Though he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:

18~JOB 020|014` Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him.

18~JOB 020|015` He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.

18~JOB 020|016` He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper's tongue shall slay him.

18~JOB 020|017` He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter.

18~JOB 020|018` That which he laboured for shall he restore, and shall not swallow it down: according to his substance shall the restitution be, and he shall not rejoice therein.

18~JOB 020|019` Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath violently taken away an house which he built not;

18~JOB 020|020` Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.

18~JOB 020|021` There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods.

18~JOB 020|022` In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits: every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.

18~JOB 020|023` When he is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain it upon him while he is eating.

18~JOB 020|024` He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through.

18~JOB 020|025` It is drawn, and comes out of the body; yea, the glittering sword comes out of his gall: terrors are upon him.

18~JOB 020|026` All darkness shall be hid in his secret places: a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.

18~JOB 020|027` The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him.

18~JOB 020|028` The increase of his house shall depart, and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath.

18~JOB 020|029` This is the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed to him by God.

18~JOB 021|001` But Job answered and said,

18~JOB 021|002` Hear diligently my speech, and let this be your consolations.

18~JOB 021|003` Suffer me that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on.

18~JOB 021|004` As for me, is my complaint to man? and if it were so, why should not my spirit be troubled?

18~JOB 021|005` Mark me, and be astonished, and lay your hand upon your mouth.

18~JOB 021|006` Even when I remember I am afraid, and trembling takes hold on my flesh.

18~JOB 021|007` Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power?

18~JOB 021|008` Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.

18~JOB 021|009` Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them.

18~JOB 021|010` Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casts not her calf.

18~JOB 021|011` They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance.

18~JOB 021|012` They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ.

18~JOB 021|013` They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.

18~JOB 021|014` Therefore they say to God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.

18~JOB 021|015` What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray to him?

18~JOB 021|016` Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

18~JOB 021|017` How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft comes their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.

18~JOB 021|018` They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carry away.

18~JOB 021|019` God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it.

18~JOB 021|020` His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the almighty.

18~JOB 021|021` For what pleasure hath he in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off in the midst?

18~JOB 021|022` Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.

18~JOB 021|023` One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet.

18~JOB 021|024` His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow.

18~JOB 021|025` And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.

18~JOB 021|026` They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them.

18~JOB 021|027` Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which you wrongfully imagine against me.

18~JOB 021|028` For you say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?

18~JOB 021|029` Have you not asked them that go by the way? and do you not know their tokens,

18~JOB 021|030` That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

18~JOB 021|031` Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he hath done?

18~JOB 021|032` Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.

18~JOB 021|033` The clods of the valley shall be sweet to him, and every man shall draw after him, as there are innumerable before him.

18~JOB 021|034` How then comfort you me in vain, seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?

18~JOB 022|001` Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,

18~JOB 022|002` Can a man be profitable to God, as he that is wise may be profitable to himself?

18~JOB 022|003` Is it any pleasure to the almighty, that you art righteous? or is it gain to him, that you makest thy ways perfect?

18~JOB 022|004` Will he reprove you for fear of you? will he enter with you into judgment?

18~JOB 022|005` Is not thy wickedness great? and yours iniquities infinite?

18~JOB 022|006` For you hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped the naked of their clothing.

18~JOB 022|007` You hast not given water to the weary to drink, and you hast withholden bread from the hungry.

18~JOB 022|008` But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; and the honourable man lived in it.

18~JOB 022|009` You hast sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.

18~JOB 022|010` Therefore snares are round about you, and sudden fear troubleth you;

18~JOB 022|011` Or darkness, that you canst not see; and abundance of waters cover you.

18~JOB 022|012` Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!

18~JOB 022|013` And you sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud?

18~JOB 022|014` Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he sees not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.

18~JOB 022|015` Have you marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?

18~JOB 022|016` Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood:

18~JOB 022|017` Which said to God, Depart from us: and what can the Almighty do for them?

18~JOB 022|018` Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

18~JOB 022|019` The righteous see it, and are glad: and the innocent laugh them to scorn.

18~JOB 022|020` Whereas our substance is not cut down, but the remnant of them the fire consumes.

18~JOB 022|021` Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come to you.

18~JOB 022|022` Receive, I pray you, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in yours heart.

18~JOB 022|023` If you return to the Almighty, you shalt be built up, you shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.

18~JOB 022|024` Then shalt you lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.

18~JOB 022|025` You, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and you shalt have plenty of silver.

18~JOB 022|026` For then shalt you have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face to God.

18~JOB 022|027` You shalt make thy prayer to him, and he shall hear you, and you shalt pay thy vows.

18~JOB 022|028` You shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

18~JOB 022|029` When men are cast down, then you shalt say, There Is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

18~JOB 022|030` He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of yours hands.

18~JOB 023|001` Then Job answered and said,

18~JOB 023|002` Even to day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.

18~JOB 023|003` Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!

18~JOB 023|004` I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.

18~JOB 023|005` I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say to me.

18~JOB 023|006` Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me.

18~JOB 023|007` There the righteous might dispute with him; so should I be delivered for ever from my judge.

18~JOB 023|008` Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him:

18~JOB 023|009` On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:

18~JOB 023|010` But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

18~JOB 023|011` My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined.

18~JOB 023|012` Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

18~JOB 023|013` But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desires, even that he doeth.

18~JOB 023|014` For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him.

18~JOB 023|015` Therefore am I troubled at his presence: when I consider, I am afraid of him.

18~JOB 023|016` For God maketh my heart soft, and the almighty troubleth me:

18~JOB 023|017` Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.

18~JOB 024|001` Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?

18~JOB 024|002` Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.

18~JOB 024|003` They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge.

18~JOB 024|004` They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.

18~JOB 024|005` Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yields food for them and for their children.

18~JOB 024|006` They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.

18~JOB 024|007` They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.

18~JOB 024|008` They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.

18~JOB 024|009` They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.

18~JOB 024|010` They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;

18~JOB 024|011` Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst.

18~JOB 024|012` Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded cries out: yet God layeth not folly to them.

18~JOB 024|013` They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor stay in the paths thereof.

18~JOB 024|014` The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.

18~JOB 024|015` The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face.

18~JOB 024|016` In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.

18~JOB 024|017` For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.

18~JOB 024|018` He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he observe not the way of the vineyards.

18~JOB 024|019` Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned.

18~JOB 024|020` The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.

18~JOB 024|021` He evil entreateth the barren that bear not: and doeth not good to the widow.

18~JOB 024|022` He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life.

18~JOB 024|023` Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways.

18~JOB 024|024` They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.

18~JOB 024|025` And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth?

18~JOB 025|001` Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

18~JOB 025|002` Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.

18~JOB 025|003` Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?

18~JOB 025|004` How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?

18~JOB 025|005` Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.

18~JOB 025|006` How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

18~JOB 026|001` But Job answered and said,

18~JOB 026|002` How hast you helped him that is without power? how savest you the arm that hath no strength?

18~JOB 026|003` How hast you counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast you plentifully declared the thing as it is?

18~JOB 026|004` To whom hast you uttered words? and whose spirit came from you?

18~JOB 026|005` Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

18~JOB 026|006` Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

18~JOB 026|007` He stretches out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

18~JOB 026|008` He bind up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

18~JOB 026|009` He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreads his cloud upon it.

18~JOB 026|010` He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

18~JOB 026|011` The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

18~JOB 026|012` He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he assults through the proud.

18~JOB 026|013` By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

18~JOB 026|014` Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

18~JOB 027|001`

18~JOB 027|002` As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;

18~JOB 027|003` All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;

18~JOB 027|004` My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.

18~JOB 027|005` God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

18~JOB 027|006` My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

18~JOB 027|007` Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.

18~JOB 027|008` For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God takes away his soul?

18~JOB 027|009` Will God hear his cry when trouble comes upon him?

18~JOB 027|010` Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?

18~JOB 027|011` I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.

18~JOB 027|012` Behold, all you yourselves have seen it; why then are you thus altogether vain?

18~JOB 027|013` This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty.

18~JOB 027|014` If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.

18~JOB 027|015` Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep.

18~JOB 027|016` Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;

18~JOB 027|017` He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.

18~JOB 027|018` He builds his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh.

18~JOB 027|019` The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.

18~JOB 027|020` Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest steals him away in the night.

18~JOB 027|021` The east wind carry him away, and he departs: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.

18~JOB 027|022` For God shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.

18~JOB 027|023` Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.

18~JOB 028|001` Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it.

18~JOB 028|002` Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.

18~JOB 028|003` He setteth an end to darkness, and searches out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.

18~JOB 028|004` The flood breaks out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men.

18~JOB 028|005` As for the earth, out of it comes bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.

18~JOB 028|006` The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.

18~JOB 028|007` There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen:

18~JOB 028|008` The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.

18~JOB 028|009` He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.

18~JOB 028|010` He cuts out rivers among the rocks; and his eye sees every precious thing.

18~JOB 028|011` He bind the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid brings he forth to light.

18~JOB 028|012` But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

18~JOB 028|013` Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

18~JOB 028|014` The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.

18~JOB 028|015` It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.

18~JOB 028|016` It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.

18~JOB 028|017` The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.

18~JOB 028|018` No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.

18~JOB 028|019` The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.

18~JOB 028|020` Whence then comes wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?

18~JOB 028|021` Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.

18~JOB 028|022` Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.

18~JOB 028|023` God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.

18~JOB 028|024` For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and sees under the whole heaven;

18~JOB 028|025` To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

18~JOB 028|026` When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:

18~JOB 028|027` Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.

18~JOB 028|028` And to man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

18~JOB 029|001`

18~JOB 029|002` Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me;

18~JOB 029|003` When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;

18~JOB 029|004` As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle;

18~JOB 029|005` When the Almighty was yet with me, when my children were about me;

18~JOB 029|006` When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;

18~JOB 029|007` When I went out to the gate through the city, when I prepared my seat in the street!

18~JOB 029|008` The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose, and stood up.

18~JOB 029|009` The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth.

18~JOB 029|010` The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.

18~JOB 029|011` When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:

18~JOB 029|012` Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

18~JOB 029|013` The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.

18~JOB 029|014` I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

18~JOB 029|015` I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the Lame.

18~JOB 029|016` I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

18~JOB 029|017` And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

18~JOB 029|018` Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.

18~JOB 029|019` My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.

18~JOB 029|020` My glory was Fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

18~JOB 029|021` Unto me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.

18~JOB 029|022` After my words they spoke not again; and my speech dropped upon them.

18~JOB 029|023` And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.

18~JOB 029|024` If I laughed on them, they believed it not; and the light of my countenance they cast not down.

18~JOB 029|025` I chose out their way, and sat chief, and lived as a king in the army, as one that comforts the mourners.

18~JOB 030|001` But now they that are younger than I have me in derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.

18~JOB 030|002` You, whereto might the strength of their hands profit me, in whom old age was perished?

18~JOB 030|003` For want and famine they were solitary; fleeing into the wilderness in former time desolate and waste.

18~JOB 030|004` Who cut up mallows by the bushes, and juniper roots for their meat.

18~JOB 030|005` They were driven forth from among men, (they cried after them as after a thief;)

18~JOB 030|006` To dwell in the clifts of the valleys, in caves of the earth, and in the rocks.

18~JOB 030|007` Among the bushes they brayed; under the nettles they were gathered together.

18~JOB 030|008` They were children of fools, yea, children of base men: they were viler than the earth.

18~JOB 030|009` And now am I their song, yea, I am their byword.

18~JOB 030|010` They abhor me, they flee far from me, and spare not to spit in my face.

18~JOB 030|011` Because he hath loosed my cord, and afflicted me, they have also let loose the bridle before me.

18~JOB 030|012` Upon my right hand rise the youth; they push away my feet, and they raise up against me the ways of their destruction.

18~JOB 030|013` They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, they have no helper.

18~JOB 030|014` They came upon me as a wide breaking in of waters: in the desolation they rolled themselves upon me.

18~JOB 030|015` Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the wind: and my welfare passeth away as a cloud.

18~JOB 030|016` And now my soul is poured out upon me; the days of affliction have taken hold upon me.

18~JOB 030|017` My bones are pierced in me in the night season: and my sinews take no rest.

18~JOB 030|018` By the great force of my disease is my garment changed: it bind me about as the collar of my coat.

18~JOB 030|019` He hath cast me into the mire, and I am become like dust and ashes.

18~JOB 030|020` I cry to you, and you dost not hear me: I stand up, and you regardest me not.

18~JOB 030|021` You art become cruel to me: with thy strong hand you opposest thyself against me.

18~JOB 030|022` You liftest me up to the wind; you causest me to ride upon it, and dissolvest my substance.

18~JOB 030|023` For I know that you wilt bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living.

18~JOB 030|024` Howbeit he will not stretch out his hand to the grave, though they cry in his destruction.

18~JOB 030|025` Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? was not my soul grieved for the poor?

18~JOB 030|026` When I looked for good, then evil came to me: and when I waited for light, there came darkness.

18~JOB 030|027` My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

18~JOB 030|028` I went mourning without the sun: I stood up, and I cried in the congregation.

18~JOB 030|029` I am a brother to dragons, and a companion to owls.

18~JOB 030|030` My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat.

18~JOB 030|031` My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.

18~JOB 031|001` I made a covenient with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?

18~JOB 031|002` For what portion of God is there from above? and what inheritance of the Almighty from on high?

18~JOB 031|003` Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity?

18~JOB 031|004` Doth not he see my ways, and count all my steps?

18~JOB 031|005` If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot hath hasted to deceit;

18~JOB 031|006` Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know mine integrity.

18~JOB 031|007` If my step hath turned out of the way, and mine heart walked after mine eyes, and if any blot hath cleaved to mine hands;

18~JOB 031|008` Then let me sow, and let another eat; yea, let my offspring be rooted out.

18~JOB 031|009` If mine heart have been deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my neighbour's door;

18~JOB 031|010` Then let my wife grind to another, and let others bow down upon her.

18~JOB 031|011` For this is an heinous crime; yea, it is an iniquity to be punished by the judges.

18~JOB 031|012` For it is a fire that consumes to destruction, and would root out all mine increase.

18~JOB 031|013` If I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my maidservant, when they contended with me;

18~JOB 031|014` What then shall I do when God riseth up? and when he visiteth, what shall I answer him?

18~JOB 031|015` Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?

18~JOB 031|016` If I have withheld the poor from their desire, or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail;

18~JOB 031|017` Or have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof;

18~JOB 031|018` (For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I have guided her from my mother's womb;)

18~JOB 031|019` If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor without covering;

18~JOB 031|020` If his loins have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;

18~JOB 031|021` If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my help in the gate:

18~JOB 031|022` Then let mine arm fall from my shoulder blade, and mine arm be broken from the bone.

18~JOB 031|023` For destruction from God was a terror to me, and by reason of his highness I could not endure.

18~JOB 031|024` If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, You art my confidence;

18~JOB 031|025` If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because mine hand had gotten much;

18~JOB 031|026` If I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness;

18~JOB 031|027` And my heart hath been secretly enticed, or my mouth hath kissed my hand:

18~JOB 031|028` This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: for I should have denied the God that is above.

18~JOB 031|029` If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me, or lifted up myself when evil found him:

18~JOB 031|030` Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse to his soul.

18~JOB 031|031` If the men of my tabernacle said not, Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied.

18~JOB 031|032` The stranger did not lodge in the street: but I opened my doors to the traveller.

18~JOB 031|033` If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:

18~JOB 031|034` Did I fear a great multitude, or did the contempt of families terrify me, that I kept silence, and went not out of the door?

18~JOB 031|035` Oh that one would hear me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me, and that mine adversary had written a book.

18~JOB 031|036` Surely I would take it upon my shoulder, and bind it as a crown to me.

18~JOB 031|037` I would declare to him the number of my steps; as a prince would I go near to him.

18~JOB 031|038` If my land cry against me, or that the furrows likewise thereof complain;

18~JOB 031|039` If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life:

18~JOB 031|040` Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and cockle instead of barley. The words of Job are ended.

18~JOB 032|001` So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.

18~JOB 032|002` Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the realitives of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God.

18~JOB 032|003` Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.

18~JOB 032|004` Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he.

18~JOB 032|005` When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.

18~JOB 032|006` And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and you are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion.

18~JOB 032|007` I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.

18~JOB 032|008` But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

18~JOB 032|009` Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.

18~JOB 032|010` Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion.

18~JOB 032|011` Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst you searched out what to say.

18~JOB 032|012` You, I attended to you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:

18~JOB 032|013` Lest you should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man.

18~JOB 032|014` Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches.

18~JOB 032|015` They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking.

18~JOB 032|016` When I had waited, (for they spoke not, but stood still, and answered no more;)

18~JOB 032|017` I said, I will answer also my part, I also will shew mine opinion.

18~JOB 032|018` For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constrains me.

18~JOB 032|019` Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.

18~JOB 032|020` I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.

18~JOB 032|021` Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles to man.

18~JOB 032|022` For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.

18~JOB 033|001` Wherefore, Job, I pray you, hear my speeches, and hearken to all my words.

18~JOB 033|002` Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.

18~JOB 033|003` My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.

18~JOB 033|004` The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

18~JOB 033|005` If you canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up.

18~JOB 033|006` Behold, I am according to thy wish in God's stead: I also am formed out of the clay.

18~JOB 033|007` Behold, my terror shall not make you afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon you.

18~JOB 033|008` Surely you hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying,

18~JOB 033|009` I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.

18~JOB 033|010` Behold, he findeth occasions against me, he counts me for his enemy,

18~JOB 033|011` He putteth my feet in the stocks, he marketh all my paths.

18~JOB 033|012` Behold, in this you art not just: I will answer you, that God is greater than man.

18~JOB 033|013` Why dost you strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.

18~JOB 033|014` For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

18~JOB 033|015` In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

18~JOB 033|016` Then he openeth the ears of men, and seals their instruction,

18~JOB 033|017` That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

18~JOB 033|018` He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

18~JOB 033|019` He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

18~JOB 033|020` So that his life hate bread, and his soul dainty meat.

18~JOB 033|021` His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

18~JOB 033|022` You, his soul draweth near to the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

18~JOB 033|023` If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew to man his uprightness:

18~JOB 033|024` Then he is gracious to him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

18~JOB 033|025` His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:

18~JOB 033|026` He shall pray to God, and he will be favourable to him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render to man his righteousness.

18~JOB 033|027` He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

18~JOB 033|028` He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

18~JOB 033|029` Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

18~JOB 033|030` To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

18~JOB 033|031` Mark well, O Job, hearken to me: hold thy peace, and I will speak.

18~JOB 033|032` If you hast any thing to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify you.

18~JOB 033|033` If not, hearken to me: hold thy peace, and I shall teach you wisdom.

18~JOB 034|001` Furthermore Elihu answered and said,

18~JOB 034|002` Hear my words, O you wise men; and give ear to me, you that have knowledge.

18~JOB 034|003` For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tastes meat.

18~JOB 034|004` Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.

18~JOB 034|005` For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my judgment.

18~JOB 034|006` Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression.

18~JOB 034|007` What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water?

18~JOB 034|008` Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men.

18~JOB 034|009` For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.

18~JOB 034|010` Therefore hearken to me you men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.

18~JOB 034|011` For the work of a man shall he render to him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

18~JOB 034|012` You, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

18~JOB 034|013` Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath disposed the whole world?

18~JOB 034|014` If he set his heart upon man, if he gather to himself his spirit and his breath;

18~JOB 034|015` All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again to dust.

18~JOB 034|016` If now you hast understanding, hear this: hearken to the voice of my words.

18~JOB 034|017` Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt you condemn him that is most just?

18~JOB 034|018` Is it fit to say to a king, You art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly?

18~JOB 034|019` How much less to him that accepts not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.

18~JOB 034|020` In a moment shall they die, and the people shall be troubled at midnight, and pass away: and the mighty shall be taken away without hand.

18~JOB 034|021` For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he sees all his goings.

18~JOB 034|022` There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

18~JOB 034|023` For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God.

18~JOB 034|024` He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead.

18~JOB 034|025` Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.

18~JOB 034|026` He strikes them as wicked men in the open sight of others;

18~JOB 034|027` Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways:

18~JOB 034|028` So that they cause the cry of the poor to come to him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.

18~JOB 034|029` When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only:

18~JOB 034|030` That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.

18~JOB 034|031` Surely it is meet to be said to God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:

18~JOB 034|032` That which I see not teach you me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.

18~JOB 034|033` Should it be according to thy mind? he will recompense it, whether you refuse, or whether you choose; and not I: therefore speak what you knowest.

18~JOB 034|034` Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken to me.

18~JOB 034|035` Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.

18~JOB 034|036` My desire is that Job may be tried to the end because of his answers for wicked men.

18~JOB 034|037` For he add rebellion to his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.

18~JOB 035|001` Elihu spoke moreover, and said,

18~JOB 035|002` Thinkest you this to be right, that you saidst, My righteousness is more than God's?

18~JOB 035|003` For you saidst, What advantage will it be to you? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?

18~JOB 035|004` I will answer you, and thy companions with you.

18~JOB 035|005` Look to the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than you.

18~JOB 035|006` If you sinnest, what doest you against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest you to him?

18~JOB 035|007` If you be righteous, what givest you him? or what receiveth he of yours hand?

18~JOB 035|008` Your wickedness may hurt a man as you art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.

18~JOB 035|009` By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.

18~JOB 035|010` But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;

18~JOB 035|011` Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?

18~JOB 035|012` There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.

18~JOB 035|013` Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.

18~JOB 035|014` Although you sayest you shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust you in him.

18~JOB 035|015` But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity:

18~JOB 035|016` Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.

18~JOB 036|001` Elihu also proceeded, and said,

18~JOB 036|002` Suffer me a little, and I will shew you that I have yet to speak on God's behalf.

18~JOB 036|003` I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.

18~JOB 036|004` For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with you.

18~JOB 036|005` Behold, God is mighty, and despises not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.

18~JOB 036|006` He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.

18~JOB 036|007` He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted.

18~JOB 036|008` And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;

18~JOB 036|009` Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.

18~JOB 036|010` He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.

18~JOB 036|011` If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

18~JOB 036|012` But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

18~JOB 036|013` But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bind them.

18~JOB 036|014` They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.

18~JOB 036|015` He delivers the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.

18~JOB 036|016` Even so would he have removed you out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness.

18~JOB 036|017` But you hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on you.

18~JOB 036|018` Because there is wrath, beware lest he take you away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver you.

18~JOB 036|019` Will he esteem thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength.

18~JOB 036|020` Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.

18~JOB 036|021` Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast you chosen rather than affliction.

18~JOB 036|022` Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teaches like him?

18~JOB 036|023` Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, You hast wrought iniquity?

18~JOB 036|024` Remember that you magnify his work, which men behold.

18~JOB 036|025` Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off.

18~JOB 036|026` Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.

18~JOB 036|027` For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:

18~JOB 036|028` Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.

18~JOB 036|029` Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?

18~JOB 036|030` Behold, he spreads his light upon it, and covers the bottom of the sea.

18~JOB 036|031` For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance.

18~JOB 036|032` With clouds he covers the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that comes between.

18~JOB 036|033` The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour.

18~JOB 037|001` At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place.

18~JOB 037|002` Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.

18~JOB 037|003` He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning to the ends of the earth.

18~JOB 037|004` After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.

18~JOB 037|005` God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.

18~JOB 037|006` For he saith to the snow, Be you on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.

18~JOB 037|007` He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

18~JOB 037|008` Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.

18~JOB 037|009` Out of the south comes the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

18~JOB 037|010` By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

18~JOB 037|011` Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scatters his bright cloud:

18~JOB 037|012` And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.

18~JOB 037|013` He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

18~JOB 037|014` Hearken to this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

18~JOB 037|015` Dost you know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

18~JOB 037|016` Dost you know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

18~JOB 037|017` How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?

18~JOB 037|018` Have you with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?

18~JOB 037|019` Teach us what we shall say to him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.

18~JOB 037|020` Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.

18~JOB 037|021` And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanses them.

18~JOB 037|022` Fair weather comes out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.

18~JOB 037|023` Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.

18~JOB 037|024` Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.

18~JOB 038|001` Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

18~JOB 038|002` Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?

18~JOB 038|003` Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of you, and answer you me.

18~JOB 038|004` Where wast you when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if you hast understanding.

18~JOB 038|005` Who hath laid the measures thereof, if you knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

18~JOB 038|006` Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

18~JOB 038|007` When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

18~JOB 038|008` Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?

18~JOB 038|009` When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,

18~JOB 038|010` And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,

18~JOB 038|011` And said, Hitherto shalt you come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

18~JOB 038|012` Have you commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;

18~JOB 038|013` That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

18~JOB 038|014` It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.

18~JOB 038|015` And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.

18~JOB 038|016` Have you entered into the springs of the sea? or hast you walked in the search of the depth?

18~JOB 038|017` Have the gates of death been opened to you? or hast you seen the doors of the shadow of death?

18~JOB 038|018` Have you perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if you knowest it all.

18~JOB 038|019` Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,

18~JOB 038|020` That you shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that you shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?

18~JOB 038|021` Knowest you it, because you wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?

18~JOB 038|022` Have you entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast you seen the treasures of the hail,

18~JOB 038|023` Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

18~JOB 038|024` By what way is the light parted, which scatters the east wind upon the earth?

18~JOB 038|025` Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;

18~JOB 038|026` To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;

18~JOB 038|027` To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?

18~JOB 038|028` Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?

18~JOB 038|029` Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?

18~JOB 038|030` The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

18~JOB 038|031` Canst you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

18~JOB 038|032` Canst you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst you guide Arcturus with his sons?

18~JOB 038|033` Knowest you the ordinances of heaven? canst you set the dominion thereof in the earth?

18~JOB 038|034` Canst you lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover you?

18~JOB 038|035` Canst you send lightnings, that they may go and say to you, Here we are?

18~JOB 038|036` Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

18~JOB 038|037` Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,

18~JOB 038|038` When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?

18~JOB 038|039` Wilt you hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,

18~JOB 038|040` When they couch in their dens, and stay in the covert to lie in wait?

18~JOB 038|041` Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry to God, they wander for lack of meat.

18~JOB 039|001` Knowest you the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst you mark when the hinds do calve?

18~JOB 039|002` Canst you number the months that they fulfil? or knowest you the time when they bring forth?

18~JOB 039|003` They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.

18~JOB 039|004` Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not to them.

18~JOB 039|005` Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

18~JOB 039|006` Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

18~JOB 039|007` He scorns the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.

18~JOB 039|008` The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searches after every green thing.

18~JOB 039|009` Will the unicorn be willing to serve you, or stay by thy crib?

18~JOB 039|010` Canst you bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after you?

18~JOB 039|011` Wilt you trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt you leave thy labour to him?

18~JOB 039|012` Wilt you believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?

18~JOB 039|013` Gavest you the goodly wings to the peacocks? or wings and feathers to the ostrich?

18~JOB 039|014` Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

18~JOB 039|015` And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

18~JOB 039|016` She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;

18~JOB 039|017` Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

18~JOB 039|018` What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorns the horse and his rider.

18~JOB 039|019` Have you given the horse strength? hast you clothed his neck with thunder?

18~JOB 039|020` Canst you make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.

18~JOB 039|021` He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.

18~JOB 039|022` He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.

18~JOB 039|023` The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.

18~JOB 039|024` He swallows the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.

18~JOB 039|025` He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smells the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

18~JOB 039|026` Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?

18~JOB 039|027` Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

18~JOB 039|028` She dwelleth and stay on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.

18~JOB 039|029` From there she seeks the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

18~JOB 039|030` Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

18~JOB 040|001` Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said,

18~JOB 040|002` Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.

18~JOB 040|003` Then Job answered the Lord, and said,

18~JOB 040|004` Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer you? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.

18~JOB 040|005` Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.

18~JOB 040|006` Then answered the Lord to Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

18~JOB 040|007` Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of you, and declare you to me.

18~JOB 040|008` Wilt you also disannul my judgment? wilt you condemn me, that you mayest be righteous?

18~JOB 040|009` Have you an arm like God? or canst you thunder with a voice like him?

18~JOB 040|010` Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.

18~JOB 040|011` Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him.

18~JOB 040|012` Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.

18~JOB 040|013` Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret.

18~JOB 040|014` Then will I also confess to you that yours own right hand can save you.

18~JOB 040|015` Behold now behemoth, which I made with you; he eateth grass as an ox.

18~JOB 040|016` Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.

18~JOB 040|017` He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.

18~JOB 040|018` His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.

18~JOB 040|019` He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach to him.

18~JOB 040|020` Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.

18~JOB 040|021` He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.

18~JOB 040|022` The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.

18~JOB 040|023` Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.

18~JOB 040|024` He takes it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

18~JOB 041|001` Canst you draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which you lettest down?

18~JOB 041|002` Canst you put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?

18~JOB 041|003` Will he make many supplications to you? will he speak soft words to you?

18~JOB 041|004` Will he make a covenient with you? wilt you take him for a servant for ever?

18~JOB 041|005` Wilt you play with him as with a bird? or wilt you bind him for thy maidens?

18~JOB 041|006` Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

18~JOB 041|007` Canst you fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

18~JOB 041|008` Lay yours hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

18~JOB 041|009` Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?

18~JOB 041|010` None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?

18~JOB 041|011` Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

18~JOB 041|012` I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.

18~JOB 041|013` Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?

18~JOB 041|014` Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.

18~JOB 041|015` His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.

18~JOB 041|016` One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.

18~JOB 041|017` They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.

18~JOB 041|018` By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

18~JOB 041|019` Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.

18~JOB 041|020` Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.

18~JOB 041|021` His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

18~JOB 041|022` In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.

18~JOB 041|023` The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.

18~JOB 041|024` His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.

18~JOB 041|025` When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of destroying they purify themselves.

18~JOB 041|026` The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.

18~JOB 041|027` He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.

18~JOB 041|028` The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble.

18~JOB 041|029` Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.

18~JOB 041|030` Sharp stones are under him: he spreads sharp pointed things upon the mire.

18~JOB 041|031` He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.

18~JOB 041|032` He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.

18~JOB 041|033` Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.

18~JOB 041|034` He observe all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.

18~JOB 042|001` Then Job answered the Lord, and said,

18~JOB 042|002` I know that you canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from you.

18~JOB 042|003` Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.

18~JOB 042|004` Hear, I beseech you, and I will speak: I will demand of you, and declare you to me.

18~JOB 042|005` I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye sees you.

18~JOB 042|006` Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

18~JOB 042|007` And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against you, and against thy two friends: for you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.

18~JOB 042|008` Therefore take to you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that you have not spoken of me the thing

18~JOB 042|009` So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the Lord commanded them: the Lord also accepted Job.

18~JOB 042|010` And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.

18~JOB 042|011` Then came there to him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him: every man also gave h

18~JOB 042|012` So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.

18~JOB 042|013` He had also seven sons and three daughters.

18~JOB 042|014` And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.

18~JOB 042|015` And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.

18~JOB 042|016` After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.

18~JOB 042|017` So Job died, being old and full of days.
