Job 27 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,

2 As God lives, who has taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who has vexed my soul;

3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;

4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.

5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove my integrity from me.

6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

7 Let my enemy be as the wicked, and he that rises up against me as the unrighteous.

8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he has gained, when God takes away his soul?

9 Will God hear his cry when trouble comes on him?

10 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call on God?

11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.

12 Behold, all you yourselves have seen it; why then are you thus altogether vain?

13 This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty.

14 If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.

15 Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep.

16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;

17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.

18 He builds his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper makes.

19 The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he opens his eyes, and he is not.

20 Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest steals him away in the night.

21 The east wind carries him away, and he departs: and as a storm hurles him out of his place.

22 For God shall cast on him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.

23 Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.


Job 28 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it.

2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.

3 He sets an end to darkness, and searches out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.

4 The flood breaks out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men.

5 As for the earth, out of it comes bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.

6 The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it has dust of gold.

7 There is a path which no fowl knows, and which the vulture's eye has not seen:

8 The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.

9 He puts forth his hand on the rock; he overturns the mountains by the roots.

10 He cuts out rivers among the rocks; and his eye sees every precious thing.

11 He binds the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid brings he forth to light.

12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

13 Man knows not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

14 The depth said, It is not in me: and the sea said, It is not with me.

15 It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.

16 It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.

17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.

18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.

19 The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.

20 From where then comes wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?

21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.

22 Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.

23 God understands the way thereof, and he knows the place thereof.

24 For he looks to the ends of the earth, and sees under the whole heaven;

25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weighs the waters by measure.

26 When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:

27 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yes, and searched it out.

28 And to man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.


Job 29 (Listen) [Page Top]

1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,

2 Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me;

3 When his candle shined on my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;

4 As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was on my tabernacle;

5 When the Almighty was yet with me, when my children were about me;

6 When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;

7 When I went out to the gate through the city, when I prepared my seat in the street!

8 The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose, and stood up.

9 The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth.

10 The nobles held their peace, and their tongue stuck to the roof of their mouth.

11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:

12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came on me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.

14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

17 And I broke the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.

19 My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night on my branch.

20 My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

21 To me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.

22 After my words they spoke not again; and my speech dropped on them.

23 And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.

24 If I laughed on them, they believed it not; and the light of my countenance they cast not down.

25 I chose out their way, and sat chief, and dwelled as a king in the army, as one that comforts the mourners.
