as 'joined themselves unto them, so as it
should not t fail, that they would keep these
two days according to their writing, and ac-
cording to their appointed time every year ;

28 And that these days should be remem-
bered and kept throughout every generation,
every family, every province, and every city ;
and that these days of Purim should not
t fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial
of them t perish from their seed.

29 Then Esther the queen, '"the daughter
of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote
with fall authority, to confirm this e second
letter of Purim.

30 And he sent the letters unto all the
Jews, to '' the hundred twenty and seven pro-
vinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with
words of peace and truth,

31 To confirm these days of Purim in
their times appointed, according as Mordecai
the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined
them, and as they had decreed t for them-
selves and for their seed, the matters of 'the
fastings and their cry.

32 And the decree of Esther confirmed
these matters of Purim ; and it was written
in the book.

of Mordecai, ''whereunto the king t advanced
him, are they not written in the book of
the Chronicles of the kings of Media and
Persia?

3 For Mordecai the Jew was " next unto
king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews,
and accepted of the multitude of his brethren,

seeking the wealth of his people, and speak-

THE

BOOK OP JOB.*



CITAP. I.

I The holiness, riches, and religious care of Job for his
children. 6 Satan appearing before God, by calum-
niation obtaineth leave to tempt Job. 13 Understand-
ing of the loss of his goods and children, in his mourn-
ing he blesseth God.

THERE was a man "in the land of Uz,
whose name was ''Job ; and that man
was <= perfect and upright, and one that"* feared
God, and eschewed evil.

2 And there were born unto him seven
sons and three daughters.

3 His II substance also was seven thousand
sheep, and three thousand camels, and five
hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred
she-asses, and a very great || household ; so
that this man was the greatest of all the
t men of the east.

4 And his sons went and feasted in their
houses, every one his day; and sent and
called for their three sisters to eat and to
drink with them.

5 And it was so, when the days of their
feasting were gone about, that Job sent and
sanctified them, and rose up early in the
morning, *and offered burnt-offerings ac-
cording to the number of them all : for Job
said. It may be that my sons have sinned,
and *■ cursed God in their hearts. Thus did
Job t continually.

6 IT Now s there was a day
sons of God came to present
before the Lord, and f Satan
t among them.

7 And the Lort> said unto Satan, Whence
comest thou ? Then Satan answered the
Lord, and said. From 'going to and fro
in the earth, and from walking up and
down in it.

8 And the Lord said unto Satan, t ""Hast
thou considered my servant Job, that there
is none like him in the earth, 'a perfect
and an upright man, one that feareth God,
and escheweth evil?

9 Then Satan answered the Lord and
said. Doth Job fear God for nought?

10 "Hast not thou made an hedge about
him, and about his house, and about all
that he hath on every side ? » thou hast
blessed the work of his hands, and his || sub-
stance is increased in the land.

11 °But put forth thine hand now, and
touch all that he hath, f and he will p curse
thee to thy face.

12 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold,
all that he hath is in thy f power; only upon
himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan
went forth from the presence of the Lord.

13 IF And there was a day ^when his sons
and his daughters were eating and drinking
wine in their eldest brother's house :

14 And there came a messenger unto Job,
and said. The oxen were ploughing, and the
asses feeding beside them:

15 And the Sabeans fell upon them, and
took them away; yea, they have slain the
servants with the edge of the sword ; and I
only am escaped alone to tell thee.

16 While he was yet speaking, there
came also another, and said, | The fire of
God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned
up the sheep and the servants, and con-
sumed them ; and I only am escaped alone
to tell thee.

17 While he was yet speaking, there came
also another, and said, The Chaldeans made
out three bands, and f fell upon the camels,
and have carried them away, yea, and slain
the servants with the edge of the sword ;
and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

18 While he was yet speaking, there came
also another, and said, "^Thy sons and thy
daughters were eating and drinking wine
in their eldest brother's house :

19 And behold, there came a great wind
t from the wilderness, and smote the four
corners of the house, and it fell upon the
young men, and they are dead ; and I only
am escaped alone to tell thee.

20 Then Job arose, =and rent his || mantle,
and shaved his head, and *fell down upon the
ground, and worshipped,

21 And said, "Naked came I out of my
mother's womb, and naked shall I return
thither: The Lord ^gave, and the Lord
hath yfaken away; ""blessed be the name of
the Lord.

22 "In all this Job sinned not, nor || charged
God foolishly.

the Lord, and said. From going to and fro

3 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast

and an upright man, one that feareth God,
and escheweth evil? and still he ""holdeth
fast his integrity, although thou movedst
me against him, f Ho destroy him without
cause.

4 And Satan answered the Lord, and
said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath
will he give for his life.

5 ''But put forth thine hand now, and
touch his s bone and his flesh, and he will
curse thee to thy face.

8 And he took him a potsherd to scrape

10 But he said unto her. Thou speakest
as one of the foolish women speaketh.
What ! ° shall we receive good at the hand
of God, and shall we not receive evil ? ° In
all this did not Job p sin with his lips.

11 IT Now when Job's three i friends heard
of all this evil that was come upon him,
they came every one from his own place;
Eliphaz the "^Temanite, and Bildad the
= Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite : for
they had made an appointment together to
come 'to mourn with him, and to comfort
him.

12 And when they lifted up their eyes
afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up
their voice, and wept ; and they rent every
one his mantle, and "sprinkled dust upon
their heads toward heaven.

13 So they sat down with him upon the
ground ^ seven days and seven nights, and
none spake a word unto him : for they saw
that his grief was very great.

He curseth the day of his birth.

AFTER this opened Job his mouth, and
cursed his day.

2 And Job t spake, and said,

3 ''Let the day perish wherein I was born,
and the night in which it was said. There is
a man child conceived.

4 Let that day be darkness ; let not God
regard it from above, neither let the light
shine upon it.

5 Let darkness and ''the shadow of death
II stain it ; let a cloud dwell upon it ; || let
the blackness of the day terrify it.

. 6 As for that night, let darkness seize
upon it ; || let it not be joined unto the days
of the year ; let it not come into the number
of the months.

7 Lo, let that night be solitary; let no
joyful voice come therein.

8 Let them curse it that curse the day,
"who are ready to raise up || their mourn-
ing.

9 Let the stars of the twilight thereof be
dark ; let it look for light, but have none ;
neither let it see t the dawning of the day.

10 Because it shut not up the doors of
my mother^s womb, nor hid sorrow from
mine eyes.

11 "i Why died I not from the womb ?
why did I not give up the ghost when I came
out of the belly?

12 ^ Why did the knees prevent me ? or
why the breasts that I should suck ?

13 For now should I have lain still and
been quiet, I should have slept : then had I
been at rest,

14 With kings and counsellors of the
earth, which ^ built desolate places for
themselves ;

15 Or with princes that had gold, who
filled their houses with silver :

16 Or eas an hidden untimely birth I
had not been ; as infants which never saw
light.

17 There the wicked ceaseyrom troubling ;
and there the f weary be at rest.

18 There the prisoners rest together;
''they hear not the voice of the oppressor.

19 The small and great are there ; and
the servant is free from his master.

20 'Wherefore is light given to him that
is in '
soul;



misery, and life unto the '^ bitter in



21 Which t 'long for death, but it cometh
not; and dig for it more than ""for hid
treasures ;

22 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are
glad, when they can find the grave?

23 Why is light given to a man whose way
is hid, " and whom God hath hedged in ?

24 For my sighing cometh t before I eat,

464



Eliphaz reproveth Job.

and my roarings arc poured out like the
waters.

25 For fthe thing which I greatly feared
is come upon me, and that which I was
afraid of is come unto me.

26 I was not in safety, neither had I rest,
neither was I quiet ; yet trouble came.

CHAP. IV.

I Elipaaz reproveth Job for want of religion. 7 He
teacheth God's judgments to be not for the righteouS:
but for t/ie wicked. 12 His fearful vision, to humble
the excellency of creatures before God.

THEN Eliphaz the Temanite answered
and said,

2 If we assay fto commune with thee,
wilt thou be grieved ? but f who can with-
hold himself from speaking ?

3 Behold, thou hast instructed many, and
thou *hast strengthened the weak hands.

4 Thy words have upholden him that was
falling, and thou ""hast strengthened fthe
feeble knees.

5 But now it is come upon thee, and
thou faintest ; it toucheth thee, and thou art
troubled.

6 Is not this <=thy fear, ^thy confidence,
thy hope, and the uprightness of thy ways ?

7 Remember, I pray thee, ^who ever
perished, being innocent? or where were
the righteous cut off?

8 Even as I have seen, ''they that plough
iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the
same.

9 By the blast of God they perish, and

II by the breath of his nostrils are they con-
sumed.

10 The roaring of the lion, and the voice
of the fierce lion, and ethe teeth of the
young lions, are broken.

11 ''The old lion perisheth for lack of
prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scat-
tered abroad.

12 Now a thing was t secretly brought to
me, and mine ear received a little thereof.

13 'In thoughts from the visions of the
night, when deep sleep falleth on men,

14 Fear t came upon me, and ''trembling,
which made t all my bones to shake.

15 Then a spirit passed before my face ;
the hair of my flesh stood up :

16 It stood still, but I could not discern
the form thereof : an image was before mine
eyes, || there was silence, and I heard a voice,
saying,

17 ' Shall mortal man be more just than
God? shall a man be more pure than his
Maker? .

18 Behold, ""he put no trust in his ser-
vants ; II and his angels he charged with

folly :

CHAP. V.

I The harm of inconsideration. ^ The end of the wicked
is misery. 6 God is to be regarded in affliction.
The happy end of God's oerrection.

CALL now, if there be any that will
answer thee; and to which of the saints
wilt thou II turn?

2 For wrath killeth the foolish man, and

II envy slayeth the silly one.

3^1 have seen the foolish taking root :
but suddenly I cursed his habitation.

4 •' His children are far from safety, and
they are crushed in the gate, <= neither is
there any to deliver them.

5 Whose harvest the hungry eateth up,
and taketh it even out of the thorns, and
^ the robber swalloweth up their substance.

6 Although II affliction cometh not forth
of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out
of the ground ;

7 Yet man is " born unto || trouble,' as
t the sparks fly upward.

8 I would seek unto God, and unto God
would I commit my cause :

9 f Which doeth great things t and un-
searchable ; marvellous things t without
number :

10 sWho giveth rain upon the earth,
and sendeth waters upon the f fields :

11 "^ To set up on high those that be low ;
that those which mourn may be exalted to
safety.

12 'He disappointeth the devices of the
crafty, so that their hands || cannot perform
their enterprise.

13 ^ He taketh the wise in their own craft-
iness : and the counsel of the froward is
carried headlong.

14 ' They || meet with darkness in the
day-time, and grope in the noon-day as in
the night.

15 But ""he saveth the poor from the
sword, from their mouth, and from the hand
of the mighty.

16 "So the poor hath hope, and iniquity
stoppeth her mouth.

17 "Behold, happy is the man whom God
correcteth : therefore despise not thou the
chastening of the Almighty :

18 P For he maketh sore, and bmdeth up :
he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

465



The happy end of God's correction.

19 iHe shall deliver thee in six troubles :
yea, in seven 'there shall no evil touch
thee.

20 = In famine he shall redeem thee from
death : and in war f from the power of the
sword.

21 t Thou shalt be hid \\ from the scourge
of the tongue : neither shalt thou be afraid
of destruction when it cometh.

22 At destruction and famine thou shalt
laugh : " neither shalt thou be afraid of the
beasts of the earth.

23 ^ For thou shalt be in league with the
stones of the field : and the beasts of the
field shall be at peace with thee.

24 And thou shalt know || that thy taber-
nacle shall be in peace ; and thou shalt visit
thy habitation, and shalt not || sin.

25 Thou shalt know also that ythy seed
shall be || great, and thine offspring ^ as the
grass of the earth.

26 ''Thou shalt come to thy grave in a
full age, like as a shock of corn t cometh in
in his season.

27 Lo this, we have '■ searched it, so it is;
hear it, and know thou it t for thy good.

CHAP. VI.

1 Job sheweth that his complaints are not causeless. 8 He

weighed, and my calamity f laid in the ba-
lances together !

3 For now it would be heavier '^ than the
sand of the sea : therefore || my words are
swallowed up.

that God would grant me f the thing that I
long for !

hope ? And what is mine end, that I should
prolong my life ?

12 Is my strength the strength of gtones ?
or is my flesh t of brass ?

13 Is not my help in me ? and is wisdom
driven quite from me ?

14 t ^ To him that is afflicted pity should
be shewed from his friend ; but he forsaketh
the fear of the Almighty.

15 ''My brethren have dealt deceitfully aa
a brook, and ' as the stream of brooks they
pass away ;

16 Which are blackish by reason of the
ice, and wherein the snow is hid :

17 What time they wax warm, t they
vanish : t when it is hot, they are f consumed
out of their place.

18 Thepaths of their way are turned'aside ;
they go to nothing, and perish.

19 The troops of "^ Tema looked, the com-
panies of ' Sheba waited for them.

20 They were " confounded because they
had hoped; they came thither, and were
ashamed.

21 II For now " ye are t nothing ; ye see
my casting down, and ° are afraid.

22 Did I say. Bring unto me ? or. Give a
reward for me of your substance ?

23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy's
hand ? or, Redeem me from the hand of the
mighty ?

24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue :
and cause me to understand wherein I have
erred.

25 How forcible are right words ! but
what doth your arguing reprove ?

26 Do ye imagine to reprove words, and
the speeches of one that is desperate, which
are as wind ?

27 Yea, fye overwhelm the fatherless,
and ye p dig a pit for your friend.
