07, Job 14-16

Job 14

1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble. View Tool
2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. View Tool
3 And doth thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee? View Tool
4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one. View Tool
5 Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; View Tool
6 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day. View Tool
7 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. 6 I View Tool
8 Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; 2 I View Tool
9 Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant. 2 I View Tool
10 But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he? 4 I View Tool
11 As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: 4 I View Tool
12 So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. 4 I View Tool
13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! 2 I View Tool
14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. 7 I View Tool
15 Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands. 3 I View Tool
16 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin? View Tool
17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity. 4 I View Tool
18 And surely the mountains falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place. View Tool
19 The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man. 4 I View Tool
20 Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth: thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away. View Tool
21 His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them. View Tool
22 But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn. View Tool

 

Job 15

1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said, View Tool
2 Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind? View Tool
3 Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good? View Tool
4 Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God. View Tool
5 For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty. View Tool
6 Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee. View Tool
7 Art thou the first man that was born? or wast thou made before the hills? View Tool
8 Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself? View Tool
9 What knowest thou, that we know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us? View Tool
10 With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father. View Tool
11 Are the consolations of God small with thee? is there any secret thing with thee? View Tool
12 Why doth thine heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at, View Tool
13 That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth? View Tool
14 What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous? View Tool
15 Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight. 6 I View Tool
16 How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water? 6 I View Tool
17 I will shew thee, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare; View Tool
18 Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it: View Tool
19 Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed among them. View Tool
20 The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor. View Tool
21 A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. View Tool
22 He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword. View Tool
23 He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. View Tool
24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. View Tool
25 For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty. View Tool
26 He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers: View Tool
27 Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks. View Tool
28 And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps. View Tool
29 He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth. View Tool
30 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. View Tool
31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence. View Tool
32 It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green. View Tool
33 He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive. View Tool
34 For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery. View Tool
35 They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit. View Tool

 

Job 16

1 Then Job answered and said, View Tool
2 I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all. View Tool
3 Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest? View Tool
4 I also could speak as ye do: if your soul were in my soul’s stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you. View Tool
5 But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief. View Tool
6 Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased? View Tool
7 But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all my company. View Tool
8 And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face. View Tool
9 He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me. View Tool
10 they have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me. View Tool
11 God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked. View Tool
12 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. View Tool
13 His archers compass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground. View Tool
14 He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant. View Tool
15 I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust. View Tool
16 My face is foul with weeping, and on my eyelids is the shadow of death; View Tool
17 Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure. View Tool
18 O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place. View Tool
19 Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high. 6 I View Tool
20 My friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears unto God. 6 I View Tool
21 O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour! 2 I View Tool
22 When a few years are come, then I shall go the way whence I shall not return. 2 I View Tool
