28 Now therefore be content, look upon
me ; for it is f evident unto you if I lie.

29 1 Return, I pray you, let it not be ini-
quity ; yea, return again, my righteousness
is II in it.

30 Is there iniquity in my tongue ? cannot
t my taste discern perverse things ?

CHAP. VII.

1 Job excuseth his desire of death. 12 He complaineih of
his own restlessness, 17 and God's watchfulness,

JS there not |1 °- an appointed time to man
upon earth ? are not his days also like the
days qf an hireling ?

2 As a servant t earnestly desireth the
shadow, and as an hireling looketh for llie
reward of his work :

3 So amimade to possess ''monthsof vani-
ty, and wearisome nights are appointed to ma

46(i



Job excuseth his desire of death.

4 When I lie down, I say, When shall
I arise, and t the night be gone ? and I am
full of tossings to. and fro unto 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 : mine
eye t shall no more || see good.

8 eThe eye of him that hath seen me shall
see me no more: thine eyes are upon me,
and II I am not.

9 As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth
away : so ''he that goeth 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 thou set-
test a watch over me ?

13 "When I say. My bed shall comfort
me, my couch shall ease my -complaint;

14 Then thou scarest me with dreams, and
terrifiest me through visions :

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

16 "I loath it; I would not live alway :
"let me alone ; pfor my days are vanity.

17 iWhat is man, that thou shouldest
magnify him? and that thou shouldest set
thine heart upon him 1

18 And that thou shouldest visit him every
morning, and try him every moment ?

19 How long wilt thou not depart from
me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my
jgpittle?

20 I have sinned ; what shall I do unto
thee, 'O thou prieserver of men? why 'hast
thou set me as a mark against thee, so that
I am a burden to myself?

21 And why dost thou not pardon my
transgression, and take away mine iniquity ?
for now shall I sleep in the dust ; and thou
shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall
not he.

CHAP. vm.

1 Bildad sheweth God's justice in dealing with men ac-
cording to their works. 8 He allegeth antiquity to
prove the certain destruction of the hypocrite. 20 He
applieth God's just dealing to Job.

THEN answered Bildad the Shuhite,
and said,
2 How long wilt thou speak these things ?
and how long shall the words of thy mouth
be like a strong wind ?

Bildad sheweth God^sjust dealing.

3 "Doth God pervert judgment; or doth
the Almighty pervert justice ?

4 If ''thy children have sinned agamst
him, and he have cast them away t for their
transgression ;

5 «If thou wouldcst seek unto God be-
times, and make thy suppUcation to the
Almighty ;

6 If thou wert pure and upright, surely
now he would awake for thee, and make the
habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.

7 Though thy beginnmg was small, yet
thy latter end should greatly increase.

8 "Tor inquire, I pray thee, of the former
age, and prepare thyself to the search of
their fathers :

9 (For ^we are hut o/" yesterday, and know
t nothing, because our days upon earth are
a shadow :)

10 Shall not they teach thee, and tell
thee, and utter words put of their heart ?

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

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

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

14 Whose hope shaU be cut off, and whose
trust shall 6e f a spider's web.

15 ''He shall lean upon 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 shooteth forth in his garden.

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

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

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 per-
fect man, neither will he f help the evil
doers :

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

22 They that hate thee shall be 'clothed
with shame ; and the dwelling-place of the
wicked t shall come to nought.

CHAP. IX.

lJob,acknowledgingGod's justice, sheweth there w no
contending with him. 22 Man's innoceticy is not to
be condemned by afflictions.

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.
467



Job achnowledgeth God's justice.

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

5 Which removeth the mountains, and
they know not : which overturneth them in
his anger ;

6 Which "shaketh the earth out of her
place, and ^ the pillars thereof tremble ;

7 Which commandeth the sun, and it
riseth not ; and sealeth up the stars ;

8 * Which alone spreadeth out the hea-
vens, and treadeth upon the t waves of the
sea;

9 f Which maketh t Arcturus, Orion, and
Pleiades, and the chambers of the south ;

10 s Which doeth great things past finding
out; yea, and wonders without number.

11 ""Lo, he goeth by me, and I see Mm
not : he passeth on also, but I perceive him
not.

12 'Behold, he taketh away, fwho can
hinder him ? who will say unto him, What
doest thou ? .

13 If God will not withdraw his anger,
^ the t 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 sup-
plication to my judge.

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

17 For he breaketh me with a tempest,
and multiplieth my wounds "without cause.

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

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

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

21 Though I u>ere perfect, yet would I not
know my soul : I would despise my life.

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

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

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

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

26 They are passed away as the f || swift
ships : 1 as the eagle that hasteth to the
prey.

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

CHAP. X.

1 Job, taking liberty of complaint, expostulateth tvith
God about his afflictions. 18 He complainet/i of life,
and craveth a little ease before death.

MY " soul is II weary of my life ; I will
leave my complaint upon myself; ''I
will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

2 I will say unto God, Do not condemn
me ; shew me wherefore thou contendest
with me.

3 Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest
oppress, that thou shouldest despise t the
work of thine hands, and shine upon the
counsel of the wicked ?

4 Hast thou eyes of flesh? or " seest thou
as man seeth ?

5 A7-e thy days as the days of man ? are
thy years as man's days,

6 That thou inquirest after mine iniquity,
and searchest after my sin ?

7 t "^Thou knowest that I am not wicked ;
and there is none that can deliver out of
thine hand.

8* Thine hands t have made me and fash-
ioned me together round about; yet thou
dost destroy me.

9 Remember, I beseech thee, that ''thou
hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou'
bring me into dust again ?

10 s Hast thou not poured me out as milk,
and curdled me like cheese ?

11 Thou hast clothed me with skin and
flesh, and hast t fenced me with bones and
sinews.

12 Thou hast granted me life and favour,
and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

13 And these things hast thou hid in
thine heart : I know that this is with thee.

14 If I sin, then *> thou markest me, and
thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.

15 If I be wicked, "wo unto me; ''and if

468



Zophar reproveth Job.

I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my
head. 1 am full of confusion ; therefore ' see
thou mine affliction ;

16 For it increaseth. "'Thou huntest me
as a fierce lion : and again thou shewest thy-
self marvellous upon me.

17 Thou renewest || thy witnesses against
me, and increasest thine indignation upon
me ; changes and war are against me.

18 "Wherefore then hast thou brought me
forth out of the womb ? Oh that I had given
up the ghost, and no eye had seen me !

'19 1 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? p cease then,
and ilet me alone, that I may take comfort
a little,

21 Before I go whence I shall not return,
'even to the land of darkness, ^and the sha-
dow 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.

CHAP. XI.

] Zophar reproveth Job for justifying himself. 5 God's
wisdom is unsearchable. 13 I'he assured blessing of
repentance.

THEN answered Zophar the Naamathite,
and said,

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

3 Should thy || lies make men hold their
peace ? and when thou mockest, shall no man
make thee ashamed ?

4 For ''thou hast said. My doctrine is
pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.

5 But Oh that God would speak, and open
his lips against thee ;

6 And that he would shew thee the secrets
of wisdom, that they are double to that which
is ! Know therefore that ^ God exacteth of
thee /ess than thine iniquity deserveth.

7 •= Canst thou by searching find out God ?
canst thou find out the Ahnighty unto per-
fection ?

8 It is t as high as heaven ; what canst
thou do ? deeper than hell ; what canst thou
know ?

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

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

11 For *he knoweth vain men : he seeth
wickedness also ; will he not then consider
it?

12 For t ''vam man would be wise, though
man be born like a wild ass's colt.

1 Job maintaineth himself against his friends that reprove
him. 7 He achnowledgeth the general doctrine of God's
omnipotency.

AND Job answered and said,
2 No doubt but ye are the people, and
wisdom shall die with you.

3 But ''I have f understanding as well
as you ; f I am not inferior to you : yea,
t who knoweth not such things as these ?

4 ""I am as one mocked of his neighbour,
who " calleth upon God, and he answereth
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 bringeth abundantly.

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

8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall
teach thee ; and the fishes of the sea shall
declare unto thee.

9 "Who knoweth not in all these that the
hand of the Lord hath wrought this ?

10 *In whose hand is the 1| soul of every
living thing, and the breath of f all man-
kind.

11 ^Doth not the ear try words? and
the t mouth taste his meat ?

12 ''With the ancient is wisdom; andm
length of days understanding.

13 II 'With him is wisdom and strength,
he hath counsel and understanding.

469



Joh reproveth his friends of partiality.

14 Behold, ''he breaketh down, and it
cannot be built again: he 'shutteth fup a
man, and there can be no opening.

15 Behold, he "withholdeth the waters,
and they dry up : also he ° sendeth them out,
and they overturn the earth,

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

17 He leadeth counsellors away spoiled,
and Pmaketh the judges fools.

18 He looseth the bond of kings, and
girdeth their loins with a girdle.

19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and
overthroweth the mighty.

20 iHe removeth away t the speech of the
trusty, and taketh away the understanding of
the aged.

21 ""He poureth contempt upon princes,
and II weakeneth the strength of the mighty.

22 *He discovereth deep things out of
darkness, and bringeth out to light the
shadow of death.

23 'He increaseth the nations, and destroy-
cth them : he enlargeth the nations, and
t straiteneth them again.

24 He taketh away the heart of the chief
of the people of the earth, and "causeth them
to wander in a wilderness where there is no

CHAP. xni.

1 Job reproveth his friends of partiality. 14 He pro-
fesseth his confidence in God: 20 and entreateth to know
his own sins, and God's purpose in afflicting him.

LO, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear
hath heard and understood it.

2 *What ye know, the same do I know
also : I am not inferior unto you.

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

4 But ye are forgers of lies, •'ye are all
physicians of no value.

5 O that ye would altogether hold your
peace ; and "^ it should be your wisdom.

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

7 « Will ye speak wickedly for God ? and
talk deceitfully for him ?

8 Will ye accept his person ? will ye con-
tend for God ?

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

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

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

He professeth his confidence in God.

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

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

14 Wherefore ''do I take my flesh in my
teeth, and eput my life in mine hand?

15 •'Though he slay me, yet will I trust
in him: 'but I will f maintain mine own
ways before him.

16 He also shall he 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 pleaff with me ?
for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give
up the ghost.

20 'Only do not two things unto me : then
will I not hide myself from thee.

21 "Withdraw thine hand far from me:
and let not thy dread make me afraid.

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

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

24 "Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and
° boldest me for thine enemy ?

25 P Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and
fro ? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble ?

26 For thou writest bitter things against
me, and imakest me to possess the iniquities
of my youth.

27 "^Thou puttest my feet also in the
stocks, and t lookest narrowly unto all my
paths ; thou settest a print upon the f heels
of my feet.

CHAP. XIV.

1 Job entreateth God for favour, by the shortness oflife^
and certainty of death. 7 Though life once lost be ir-
recoverable, yet he waiteth for his change. 16 By sin
the creature is subject to corruption.

MAN that is born of a woman is t of few
days, and "full of trouble.

2 '•He cometh forth like a flower, and is
cut down : he fleeth also as a shadow, and
continueth not.
