Phe shall drmk of the wrath of the Al-
mighty.

21 For what pleasure hath he in his house
after him, when the number of his months
is cut off in the midst ?

22 1 Shall any teach God knowledge ?
seeing he judgeth those that are high.

23 One dieth f in his full strength, being
wholly at ease and quiet.

24 His II breasts are full of milk, and his
bones are moistened with marrow.

25 And another dieth in the bitterness of
his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.

26 They shall ' lie down alike in the dust,
and the worms shall cover them.

Man's goodness profiteth not God.

27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and
the devices which ye wrongfully imagine
against me.

28 For ye say, » Where is the house of
the prince ? and where are f the dwelling-
places of- the wicked ?

29 Have ye not asked them that go by the
way ? and do ye not know their tokens,

30 'That the wicked is reserved to the
day of destruction ? they shall be brought
forth to t the day of wrath.

31 Who shall declare his way " to his face ?
and who shall repay him what he hath
done ?

32 Yet shall he be brought to the f grave,
and shall f remain in the tomb.

33 The clods of the valley shall be sweet
unto him, and ^ every man shall draw after
him, as there are innumerable before him.

34 How then comfort ye me in vain,
seeing in your answers there remaineth
t falsehood ?

CHAP. xxn.

1 Eliphaz sheweth that man's goodness profiteth not God.
5 He accuseth Job of divers sins. 21 He exhorteth him
to repentance, with promises of mercy.

THEN Eliphaz the Temanite answered
and said,

2 °^Can a man be profitable unto God,
|| as he that is wise may be profitable unto
himself?

3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that
thou art righteous ? or is it gain to him, that
thou makest thy ways perfect ?

4 Will he reprove thee for fear of thee ?
will he enter with thee into judgment ?

5 Is not thy wickedness great ? and thine
iniquities infinite ?

6 For thou hast •> taken a pledge from
thy brother for nought, and f stripped the
naked of their clothing.

7 Thou hast not given water to the weary
to drink, and thou *= hast withholden bread
from the hungry.

8 But as for t the mighty man, he had
the earth ; and the f honourable man dwelt
in it.

9 Thou hast sent widows away empty,
and the arms of ^ the fatherless have been
broken.

10 Therefore "snares are round about thee,
and sudden fear troubleth thee ;

11 Or darkness, that thou canst not see;
and abundance of ''waters cover thee.

12 Is not God in the height of heaven ?
and behold t the height of the stars, how
high they are !

13 And thou sayest, ||gHow doth God
know? can he judge through the dark

cloud ?

476



Eliphaz exhorteth Job to repentance.

14 ■» Thick clouds are a covering to him,
that he seeth not; and he walketh in the
circuit of heaven.

15 Hast thou marked the old way which
wicked men have trodden ?

16 Which 'were cut down out of time,
t whose foundation was overflown with a
flood:

17 ^ Which said unto God, Depart from
us : and ^what can the Almighty do 11 for
them? ^ ^ "

18 Yet he filled their houses with good
tUngs : but ■" the counsel of the wicked is far
from me.

19 » The righteous see it, and are glad :
and the innocent laugh them to scorn.

20 Whereas our || substance is not cut
down, but II the remnant of them the fire
consumeth.

21 Acquaint now thyself || with him, and
° be at peace : thereby good sliall come unto
thee.

22 Receive, I pray thee, the law from his
mouth, and p lay up his words in thine heart.

23 1 1f thou return to the Almighty, thou
shalt be built up, thou shalt put away ini-
quity far from thy tabernacles.

24 Then shalt thou ■" lay up gold || as dust,
and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the
brooks.

25 Yea, the Almighty shall be thy || de-
fence, and thou shalt have t plenty of silver.

26 For then shalt thou have thy ^ delight
in the Almighty, and * shalt lift up thy face
unto God.

27 " Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him,
and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay
thy vows.

28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it
shall be estabUshed unto thee : and the light
shall shine upon thy ways.

29 When men are cast down, then thou
shalt say, There is lifting up ; and ^ he shall
save t the humble person.

30 II He shall deliver the island of the
innocent : and it is delivered by the pureness
of thine hands.

CHAP. xxm.

1 Job longeth to appear before God, 6 in confidence of
his mercy. 8 God, who is invisible, observeth our
ways. 11 Job's innocency. 13 God's decree is im-
mutable.

THEN Job answered and said,
2 Even to-day is my complaint bitter :
t my stroke is heavier than my groaning.

3 " Oh that I knew where I might find
him ! that I might come even to his seat !

4 I would order my cause before him, and
fill my mouth with arguments.

5 I would know the words which he would

answer me, and understand what he would
say unto me.

6 '■Will he plead against me with his
great power ? No ; but he would put
strerigth'va. me.

7 There the righteous might dispute with
him ; so should I be delivered for ever from
my judge.

8 "Behold, I go forward, but he is not
there ; and backward, but I cannot perceive
him :

9 On the left hand, where he doth work,
but I cannot behold him : he hideth himself
on the right hand, that I cannot see him :

10 But he "^ knoweth f the way that I take :
when ^he hath tried me, I shall come forth
as gold.

11 f My foot hath held his steps, his way
have I kept, and not declined.

12 Neither have I gone back from the
commandment of his lips ; f e I have esteem-
ed the words of his mouth more than || my
necessary food.

13 But he is in one mind, and ^ who can
turn him ? and what ' his soul desireth, even
that he doeth.

14 For he performeth the thing that is
^ appointed for me : and many such things
are with him.

15 Therefore am I troubled at his pre-
sence : when I consider, I am afraid of him.

16 For God ^ maketh my heart soft, and
the Almighty troubleth me :

17 Because I was not cut off" before the
darkness, neither hath he covered the dark
ness from my face.

CHAP. XXIV.

1 Wickedness goeth often unpunished. 17 There is a
secret judgment for the wicked.

WHY, seeing °^ times are not hidden
from the Almighty, do they that know
him not see his days ?

2 Some remove the ^ landmarks ; they vio-
lently take away flocks, and || feed thereof.

3 They drive away the ass of the father-
less, they " take the widow's ox for a pledge.

4 They turn the needy out of the way :
■^ the poor of the earth hide themselves toge-
ther.

5 Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go
they forth to their'work ; rising betimes for
a prey : the wilderness yieldeth food for them
and for their childrep.

6 They reap every one his f corn in the
field : and t they gather the vintage of the
Avicked.

7 They " cause the naked to lodge without
clothing, that they have no covering in the
cold.

8 They are wet with the showers of the
mountains, and *■ embrace the rock for want
of a shelter.

9 They pluck the fatherless from the
breast, and take a pledge of the poor.

10 They cause him to go naked without
clothing, and they take away the sheaf yrom
the hungry ;

11 Which make oil within their walls, and
tread their wine-presses, and suffer thirst.

12 Men groan from out of the city, and
the soul of the wounded crieth out : yet God
layeth not folly to them.

13 They are of those that rebel against the
light ; they know not the ways thereof, nor
abide in the paths thereof.

14 sThe inurderer rising with the light
killeth the poor and needy, and in the night
is as a thief.

15 ■• The eye also of the adulterer waiteth
for the twilight, • saying, No eye shall see
me : and t disguiseth his face.

16 In the dark thSy dig through houses,
which they had marked for themselves in the
day-time : they ^ know not the light.

17 For the morning is to them even as the
shadow of death : if one know them, they are
in the terrors of the shadow of death.

18 He is swift as the waters ; their portion
is cursed in the earth : he beholdeth not the
way of the vineyards.

19 Drought and heat f consume the snow-
waters : so doth the grave those which have
sinned.

20 The womb shall forget him ; the worm
shall feed sweetly on him ; ' he shall be no
more remembered ; and wickedness shall be
broken as a tree.

21 He evil-entreateth the barren that
beareth not: and doeth not good to the
widow.

22 He draweth also the mighty with his
power : he riseth up, || and no man is sure of
life.

23 Though it be given him to he in safety,
whereon he resteth ; yet ■" his eyes are upon
their ways.

24 They are exalted for a little while, but
t are gone and brought low; they are f taken
out of the way as all other, and cut off as the
tops of the ears of corn.

25 And if it he not so now, who will make
me a liar, and make my speech nothing
worth?

upon whom doth not °- his light arise ?

4 '' How then can man be justified with
God ? or how can he be clean that is bom of

5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth
not ; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.

6 How much less man, that is " a worm ;
and the son of man, which is a worm ?

CHAP. XXVI.

1 Job reproving the uncharitable spirit of Bildad,
5 acknowledgeth the power of God to be infinite and
unsearchable.

UT Job answered and said,

2 How hast thou helped him that is

without power? how savest thou the arm
that hath no strength ?

3 How hast thou counselled him that hath
no wisdom ? and how hast thou plentifully
declared the thing as it is ?

4 To whom hast thou uttered words ? and
whose spirit came from thee ?

5 Dead things are formed from under the
waters, || and the inhabitants thereof.

6 "^ Hell is naked before him, and destruc-
tion hath no covering.

7 •• He stretcheth out the north over the
empty place, and hangeth the earth upon
nothing.

8 ■= He bindeth up the waters in his thick
clouds ; and the cloud is not rent under them.

9 He holdeth back the face of his throne,
and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

10 <* He hath compassed the waters with
bounds, t until the day and night come to an
end.

11 The pillars of heaven tremble, and are
astonished at his reproof.

12 ' He divideth the sea with his power,
and by his understanding he smiteth through
t the proud.

13 ^By his Spirit he hath garnished the
heavens ; his hand hath formed ?the crooked
serpent.

14 Lo, these are parts of his ways ; but
how little a portion is heard of him ? but the
thunder of his power who can understand ?

CHAP. XXVII.

I Job protesteth his sincerity. 8 The hypocrite is without
hope. 11 The blessings which the wicked have are
turned into curses,

MOREOVER, Job t continued his para-
ble, and said,

2 As God liveth, ''who hath taken away
my judgment ; and the Almighty, who hath
t vexed my soul ;

3 All the while my breath is m me,

II the spirit of God is in my nostrils ;
" ^ 477



and



The hypocrite is without hope.

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 mine integrity
from me.

6 My righteousness I <= hold fast, and will
not let it go : ^ray heart shall not reproach
me t so long as I live.

7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and
he that riseth up against me as the unright-
eous.

S « For what is the hope of the hypocrite,
though he hath gamed, when God taketh
away his soul ?

9 f Will God hear his cry when trouble
cometh upon him ?

10 eWill he dehght himself in the Al-
mighty ? will he always call upon God ?

Ill will teach you || by the hand of God :
that which is with the Ahnighty will I not
conceal.

12 Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it;
why then are ye 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 ii on, and the innocent shall divide the
silver,

18 He buildeth his house as a moth, and
" as a booth that the keeper maketh.

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

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

21 The east wind carrieth him away, and
he departeth : and as a storm hurleth him
out of his place.

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

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

The excellency of wisdom.

searcheth out all perfection : the stones of
darkness, and the shadow of death.

4 The flood breaketh out from the inha-
bitant ; 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 cometh
bread : and under it is turned up as it were
fire.

6 The stones of it are the place of sap-
phires : and it hath || dust of gold.

7 There is a path which no fowl knowcth
and which the vulture's eye hath not seen :

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

9 He putteth forth his hand upon the
II rock ; he overturneth the mountains by the
roots.

10 He cutteth out rivers among the rocks ;
and his eye seeth every precious thing.

11 He bindeth the floods t from overflow-
ing ; and the thing that is hid bringeth he
forth to light.

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

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

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

15 t 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 sap-
phire.

17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal
it : and the exchange of it shall not be for
II 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 " Whence then cometh 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
II air.

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

23 God understandeth the way thereof,
and he knoweth the place thereof.

24 For he looketh to the ends of the earth,
and s seeth under the whole heaven ;

25 '' To make the weight for the winds ;
and he weigheth 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, yea, and searched it out.

28 And unto man he said. Behold, '' the

Job bemoaneth his former prosperity, ^c.

fear of the Lord, that is .wisdom; and to
depart from evil is understanding.

CHAP. XXIX.

Job lemoaTteth himself of his former prosperity and
honour.

MOREOVER, Job t continued his para-
ble, and said,

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

3 '•When his || candle shined upon 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 upon 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 f 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 them-
selves : and the aged arose, and stood up.

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

10 t The nobles held their peace, and their
s tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.

11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed
me ; and when the eye saw me, it gave wit-
ness 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 upon me : and I caused the wi-
dow's heart to sing for joy.

14 'I put on righteousness, and it clothed
me : my judgment was as a robe and a dia-
dem.

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

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

17 And I brake ™ t the jaws of the wicked,
and t 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 f spread out Pby the
waters, and the dew lay all night upon my
branch.

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

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

22 After my words they spake not again ;
and my speech dropped upon them.

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