06, Job 10-13

Job 10

1 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul. 2 I View Tool
2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me. 6 I View Tool
3 Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked? View Tool
4 Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth? View Tool
5 Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man’s days, View Tool
6 That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin? View Tool
7 Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand. 2 I View Tool
8 Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me. View Tool
9 Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again? View Tool
10 Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? View Tool
11 Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews. 2 I View Tool
12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit. 17 I View Tool
13 And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee. 4 I View Tool
14 If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity. 6 I View Tool
15 If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction; 8 I View Tool
16 For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me. View Tool
17 Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war are against me. View Tool
18 Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me! View Tool
19 I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave. View Tool
20 Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little, View Tool
21 Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death; View Tool
22 A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness. View Tool


Job 11

1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said, View Tool
2 Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified? View Tool
3 Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed? View Tool
4 For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes. View Tool
5 But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee; View Tool
6 And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth. View Tool
7 Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? 8 I View Tool
8 It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? 6 I View Tool
9 The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea. View Tool
10 If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him? View Tool
11 For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it? 6 I View Tool
12 For vain men would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass’s colt. View Tool
13 If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him; View Tool
14 If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles. View Tool
15 For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear: View Tool
16 Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away: View Tool
17 And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday: thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning. 4 I View Tool
18 And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety. View Tool
19 Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee. View Tool
20 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. 4 I View Tool


Job 12

1 And Job answered and said, View Tool
2 No doubt but ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you. View Tool
3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these? View Tool
4 I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon God, and he answereth him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn. View Tool
5 He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease. View Tool
6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly. View Tool
7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: 7 I View Tool
8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. 7 I View Tool
9 Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this? 7 I View Tool
10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. 9 I View Tool
11 Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat? View Tool
12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding. 2 I View Tool
13 With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding. 8 I View Tool
14 Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening. 2 I View Tool
15 Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth. View Tool
16 With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his. View Tool
17 He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools. View Tool
18 He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle. View Tool
19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty. View Tool
20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged. View Tool
21 He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty. View Tool
22 He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death. View Tool
23 He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again. View Tool
24 He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way. View Tool
25 They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man. View Tool


Job 13

1 Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it. View Tool
2 What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you. View Tool
3 Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God. View Tool
4 But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value. View Tool
5 O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom. View Tool
6 Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips. View Tool
7 Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him? 2 I View Tool
8 Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God? View Tool
9 Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him? View Tool
10 He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons. View Tool
11 Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall upon you? View Tool
12 Your remembrances are like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay. View Tool
13 Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will. View Tool
14 Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand? View Tool
15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. View Tool
16 He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him. 1 I View Tool
17 Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears. View Tool
18 Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified. View Tool
19 Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost. View Tool
20 Only do not two things unto me: then will I not hide myself from thee. View Tool
21 Withdraw thine hand far from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid. View Tool
22 Then call thou, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer thou me. View Tool
23 How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin. 7 I View Tool
24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy? View Tool
25 Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble? 6 I View Tool
26 For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth. View Tool
27 Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet. View Tool
28 And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten. 4 I View Tool
