Job 7 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Is there not an appointed time to man on earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?

2 As a servant earnestly desires the shadow, and as an hireling looks for the reward of his work:

3 So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.

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 to the dawning of the day.

5 My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.

6 My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.

7 O remember that my life is wind: my eye shall no more see good.

8 The eye of him that has seen me shall see me no more: your eyes are on me, and I am not.

9 As the cloud is consumed and vanishes away: so he that goes down to the grave shall come up no more.

10 He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.

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.

12 Am I a sea, or a whale, that you set a watch over me?

13 When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaints;

14 Then you scare me with dreams, and terrify me through visions:

15 So that my soul chooses strangling, and death rather than my life.

16 I loathe it; I would not live always: let me alone; for my days are vanity.

17 What is man, that you should magnify him? and that you should set your heart on him?

18 And that you should visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

19 How long will you not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?

20 I have sinned; what shall I do to you, O you preserver of men? why have you set me as a mark against you, so that I am a burden to myself?

21 And why do you not pardon my transgression, and take away my iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and you shall seek me in the morning, but I shall not be.


Job 8 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

2 How long will you speak these things? and how long shall the words of your mouth be like a strong wind?

3 Does God pervert judgment? or does the Almighty pervert justice?

4 If your children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;

5 If you would seek to God betimes, and make your supplication to the Almighty;

6 If you were pure and upright; surely now he would awake for you, and make the habitation of your righteousness prosperous.

7 Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end should greatly increase.

8 For inquire, I pray you, of the former age, and prepare yourself to the search of their fathers:

9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days on earth are a shadow:)

10 Shall not they teach you, and tell you, and utter words out of their heart?

11 Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?

12 Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it wither before any other herb.

13 So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:

14 Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.

15 He shall lean on his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.

16 He is green before the sun, and his branch shoots forth in his garden.

17 His roots are wrapped about the heap, and sees the place of stones.

18 If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen you.

19 Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.

20 Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:

21 Till he fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing.

22 They that hate you shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nothing.


Job 9 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Then Job answered and said,

2 I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?

3 If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.

4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who has hardened himself against him, and has prospered?

5 Which removes the mountains, and they know not: which overturns them in his anger.

6 Which shakes the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

7 Which commands the sun, and it rises not; and seals up the stars.

8 Which alone spreads out the heavens, and treads on the waves of the sea.

9 Which makes Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

10 Which does great things past finding out; yes, and wonders without number.

11 See, he goes by me, and I see him not: he passes on also, but I perceive him not.

12 Behold, he takes away, who can hinder him? who will say to him, What do you?

13 If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.

14 How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him?

15 Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge.

16 If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had listened to my voice.

17 For he breaks me with a tempest, and multiplies my wounds without cause.

18 He will not suffer me to take my breath, but fills me with bitterness.

19 If I speak of strength, see, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead?

20 If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.

21 Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.

22 This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroys the perfect and the wicked.

23 If the whip slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.

24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covers the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

25 Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.

26 They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hastens to the prey.

27 If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself:

28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that you will not hold me innocent.

29 If I be wicked, why then labor I in vain?

30 If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;

31 Yet shall you plunge me in the ditch, and my own clothes shall abhor me.

32 For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.

33 Neither is there any judge between us, that might lay his hand on us both.

34 Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me:

35 Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me.
