10, Job 24-28

Job 24

1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days? View Tool
2 Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof. View Tool
3 They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow’s ox for a pledge. View Tool
4 They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together. View Tool
5 Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children. View Tool
6 They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked. View Tool
7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold. View Tool
8 They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter. View Tool
9 They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor. View Tool
10 They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry; View Tool
11 Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst. View Tool
12 Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them. View Tool
13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof. View Tool
14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief. View Tool
15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face. View Tool
16 In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light. View Tool
17 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. View Tool
18 He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards. View Tool
19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned. View Tool
20 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. View Tool
21 He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow. View Tool
22 He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life. View Tool
23 Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways. View Tool
24 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. View Tool
25 And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth? View Tool

 

Job 25

1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, View Tool
2 Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places. 4 I View Tool
3 Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise? View Tool
4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman? View Tool
5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight. 2 I View Tool
6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm? 2 I View Tool

 

Job 26

1 But Job answered and said, View Tool
2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength? View Tool
3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is? View Tool
4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee? View Tool
5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof. View Tool
6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering. 4 I View Tool
7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. 2 I View Tool
8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. 3 I View Tool
9 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it. View Tool
10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end. View Tool
11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof. 2 I View Tool
12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud. View Tool
13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent. View Tool
14 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? View Tool

 

Job 27

1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said, View Tool
2 As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul; View Tool
3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils; View Tool
4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. 4 I View Tool
5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me. View Tool
6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live. View Tool
7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous. View Tool
8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? 8 I View Tool
9 Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him? 4 I View Tool
10 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God? View Tool
11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal. 6 I View Tool
12 Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye thus altogether vain? View Tool
13 This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty. View Tool
14 If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread. View Tool
15 Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep. View Tool
16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay; View Tool
17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver. View Tool
18 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh. View Tool
19 The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not. View Tool
20 Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night. View Tool
21 The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place. View Tool
22 For God shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand. View Tool
23 Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place. View Tool

 

Job 28

1 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it. View Tool
2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone. View Tool
3 He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death. View Tool
4 The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men. View Tool
5 As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire. View Tool
6 The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold. View Tool
7 There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen: View Tool
8 The lion’s whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it. View Tool
9 He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots. View Tool
10 He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing. View Tool
11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light. View Tool
12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding? 8 I View Tool
13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living. 8 I View Tool
14 The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me. View Tool
15 It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof. View Tool
16 It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire. View Tool
17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. View Tool
18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies. View Tool
19 The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold. View Tool
20 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding? 2 I View Tool
21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air. 2 I View Tool
22 Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears. View Tool
23 God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof. View Tool
24 For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven; View Tool
25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure. View Tool
26 When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder: View Tool
27 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out. View Tool
28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. 11 I View Tool
