15, Job 40-42

Job 40

1 Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said, View Tool
2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it. 2 I View Tool
3 Then Job answered the Lord, and said, 1 I View Tool
4 Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth. 4 I View Tool
5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further. View Tool
6 Then answered the Lord unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said, View Tool
7 Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. View Tool
8 Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous? View Tool
9 Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him? 2 I View Tool
10 Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty. 2 I View Tool
11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him. View Tool
12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place. View Tool
13 Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret. View Tool
14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee. View Tool
15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. View Tool
16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. 2 I View Tool
17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. View Tool
18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. View Tool
19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. View Tool
20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. View Tool
21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. View Tool
22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. View Tool
23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. View Tool
24 He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares. View Tool


Job 41

1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? View Tool
2 Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? View Tool
3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? View Tool
4 Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? View Tool
5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? View Tool
6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? View Tool
7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? View Tool
8 Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. View Tool
9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? View Tool
10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? View Tool
11 Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. View Tool
12 I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion. View Tool
13 Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? View Tool
14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. View Tool
15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. View Tool
16 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. View Tool
17 They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. View Tool
18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. View Tool
19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. View Tool
20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. View Tool
21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. View Tool
22 In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. View Tool
23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. View Tool
24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. View Tool
25 When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves. View Tool
26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon. View Tool
27 He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. View Tool
28 The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. View Tool
29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear. View Tool
30 Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire. View Tool
31 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. View Tool
32 He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. View Tool
33 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. View Tool
34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride. View Tool


Job 42

1 Then Job answered the Lord, and said, View Tool
2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. 4 I View Tool
3 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. View Tool
4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 2 I View Tool
5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. 13 I View Tool
6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. 11 I View Tool
7 And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words unto Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath. View Tool
8 Therefore take unto 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 ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job. View Tool
9 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. View Tool
10 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. 4 I View Tool
11 Then came there unto 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 him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold. View Tool
12 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. View Tool
13 He had also seven sons and three daughters. View Tool
14 And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. View Tool
15 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. View Tool
16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations. View Tool
17 So Job died, being old and full of days. View Tool
