Job 10 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint on myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

2 I will say to God, Do not condemn me; show me why you contend with me.

3 Is it good to you that you should oppress, that you should despise the work of your hands, and shine on the counsel of the wicked?

4 Have you eyes of flesh? or see you as man sees?

5 Are your days as the days of man? are your years as man's days,

6 That you enquire after my iniquity, and search after my sin?

7 You know that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of your hand.

8 Your hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet you do destroy me.

9 Remember, I beseech you, that you have made me as the clay; and will you bring me into dust again?

10 Have you not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?

11 You have clothed me with skin and flesh, and have fenced me with bones and sinews.

12 You have granted me life and favor, and your visitation has preserved my spirit.

13 And these things have you hid in your heart: I know that this is with you.

14 If I sin, then you mark me, and you will not acquit me from my iniquity.

15 If I be wicked, woe to me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see you my affliction;

16 For it increases. You hunt me as a fierce lion: and again you show yourself marvelous on me.

17 You renew your witnesses against me, and increase your indignation on me; changes and war are against me.

18 Why then have you brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!

19 I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.

20 Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,

21 Before I go from where I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;

22 A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.


Job 11 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

2 Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified?

3 Should your lies make men hold their peace? and when you mock, shall no man make you ashamed?

4 For you have said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in your eyes.

5 But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against you;

6 And that he would show you the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacts of you less than your iniquity deserves.

7 Can you by searching find out God? can you find out the Almighty to perfection?

8 It is as high as heaven; what can you do? deeper than hell; what can you know?

9 The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.

10 If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?

11 For he knows vain men: he sees wickedness also; will he not then consider it?

12 For vain men would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.

13 If you prepare your heart, and stretch out your hands toward him;

14 If iniquity be in your hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in your tabernacles.

15 For then shall you lift up your face without spot; yes, you shall be steadfast, and shall not fear:

16 Because you shall forget your misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:

17 And your age shall be clearer than the noonday: you shall shine forth, you shall be as the morning.

18 And you shall be secure, because there is hope; yes, you shall dig about you, and you shall take your rest in safety.

19 Also you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid; yes, many shall make suit to you.

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.


Job 12 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 And Job answered and said,

2 No doubt but you are the people, and wisdom shall die with you.

3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yes, who knows not such things as these?

4 I am as one mocked of his neighbor, who calls on God, and he answers him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn.

5 He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.

6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God brings abundantly.

7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell you:

8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach you: and the fishes of the sea shall declare to you.

9 Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD has worked this?

10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

11 Does not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?

12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.

13 With him is wisdom and strength, he has counsel and understanding.

14 Behold, he breaks down, and it cannot be built again: he shuts up a man, and there can be no opening.

15 Behold, he withholds the waters, and they dry up: also he sends them out, and they overturn the earth.

16 With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his.

17 He leads counsellors away spoiled, and makes the judges fools.

18 He looses the bond of kings, and girds their loins with a girdle.

19 He leads princes away spoiled, and overthrows the mighty.

20 He removes away the speech of the trusty, and takes away the understanding of the aged.

21 He pours contempt on princes, and weakens the strength of the mighty.

22 He discovers deep things out of darkness, and brings out to light the shadow of death.

23 He increases the nations, and destroys them: he enlarges the nations, and straitens them again.

24 He takes away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causes them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.

25 They grope in the dark without light, and he makes them to stagger like a drunken man.


Job 13 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 See, my eye has seen all this, my ear has heard and understood it.

2 What you know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior to you.

3 Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.

4 But you are forgers of lies, you are all physicians of no value.

5 O that you would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.

6 Hear now my reasoning, and listen to the pleadings of my lips.

7 Will you speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?

8 Will you accept his person? will you contend for God?

9 Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocks another, do you so mock him?

10 He will surely reprove you, if you do secretly accept persons.

11 Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall on you?

12 Your remembrances are like to ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.

13 Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will.

14 Why do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in my hand?

15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain my own ways before him.

16 He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

17 Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.

18 Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.

19 Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.

20 Only do not two things to me: then will I not hide myself from you.

21 Withdraw your hand far from me: and let not your dread make me afraid.

22 Then call you, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer you me.

23 How many are my iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.

24 Why hide you your face, and hold me for your enemy?

25 Will you break a leaf driven to and fro? and will you pursue the dry stubble?

26 For you write bitter things against me, and make me to possess the iniquities of my youth.

27 You put my feet also in the stocks, and look narrowly to all my paths; you set a print on the heels of my feet.

28 And he, as a rotten thing, consumes, as a garment that is moth eaten.
