05, Job 6-9

Job 6

1 But Job answered and said, View Tool
2 Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together! View Tool
3 For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up. View Tool
4 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. View Tool
5 Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder? View Tool
6 Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg? View Tool
7 The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat. View Tool
8 Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for! 4 I View Tool
9 Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off! 4 I View Tool
10 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. 6 I View Tool
11 What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life? View Tool
12 Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass? View Tool
13 Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me? View Tool
14 To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty. View Tool
15 My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away; View Tool
16 Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid: View Tool
17 What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place. View Tool
18 The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish. View Tool
19 The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them. View Tool
20 They were confounded because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed. View Tool
21 For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid. View Tool
22 Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance? View Tool
23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy’s hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty? View Tool
24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred. View Tool
25 How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove? View Tool
26 Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind? View Tool
27 Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend. View Tool
28 Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie. View Tool
29 return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it. View Tool
30 Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things? 4 I View Tool

 

Job 7

1 Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling? View Tool
2 As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work: View Tool
3 So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me. View Tool
4 When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day. View Tool
5 My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome. View Tool
6 My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and are spent without hope. View Tool
7 O remember that my life is wind: mine eye shall no more see good. View Tool
8 The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not. View Tool
9 As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. View Tool
10 He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more. View Tool
11 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. View Tool
12 Am I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch over me? 2 I View Tool
13 When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaints; View Tool
14 Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions: 2 I View Tool
15 So that my soul chooseth strangling, and death rather than my life. View Tool
16 I loathe it; I would not live alway: let me alone; for my days are vanity. View Tool
17 What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him? 3 I View Tool
18 And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment? 3 I View Tool
19 How long wilt thou not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle? 5 I View Tool
20 I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself? 2 I View Tool
21 And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away my iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be. View Tool

 

Job 8

1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, View Tool
2 how long wilt thou speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind? View Tool
3 Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice? View Tool
4 If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression; View Tool
5 If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty; View Tool
6 If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous. View Tool
7 Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. 4 I View Tool
8 For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers: View Tool
9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:) View Tool
10 Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart? View Tool
11 Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water? View Tool
12 Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb. View Tool
13 So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite’s hope shall perish: 5 I View Tool
14 Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider’s web. 5 I View Tool
15 He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure. 2 I View Tool
16 He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden. View Tool
17 His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones. View Tool
18 If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee. View Tool
19 Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow. View Tool
20 Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers: 2 I View Tool
21 Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing. View Tool
22 They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought. View Tool

 

Job 9

1 Then Job answered and said, View Tool
2 I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God? View Tool
3 If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand. View Tool
4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered? 4 I View Tool
5 Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger. 2 I View Tool
6 Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble. View Tool
7 Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars. 2 I View Tool
8 Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. 2 I View Tool
9 Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. 2 I View Tool
10 Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number. 2 I View Tool
11 Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not. View Tool
12 Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou? 4 I View Tool
13 If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him. View Tool
14 How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him? View Tool
15 Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge. 4 I View Tool
16 If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice. View Tool
17 For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause. View Tool
18 He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness. View Tool
19 If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead? View Tool
20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse. View Tool
21 Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life. View Tool
22 This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked. View Tool
23 If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent. View Tool
24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he? View Tool
25 Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good. View Tool
26 They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey. View Tool
27 If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself: View Tool
28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent. View Tool
29 If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain? View Tool
30 If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean; View Tool
31 Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me. View Tool
32 For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment. 2 I View Tool
33 Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both. View Tool
34 Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me: 2 I View Tool
35 Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me. View Tool
