The Book of Job
1 – Behold my eye hath seen all these things, and my ear hath heard them, and I have understood them all.
2 – According to your knowledge I also know: neither am I inferior to you.
3 – But yet I will speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.
4 – Having first shewn that you are forgers of lies, and maintainers of perverse opinions.
5 – And I wish you would hold your peace, that you might be thought to be wise men..
6 – Hear ye therefore my reproof, and attend to the judgment of my lips.
7 – Hath God any need of your lie, that you should speak deceitfully for him?
8 – Do you accept his person, and do you endeavour to judge for God?
9 – Or shall it please him, from whom nothing can be concealed ? or shall he be deceived as a man, with your deceitful dealings ?
10 – He shall reprove you, because in secret you accept his person.
11 – As soon as he shall move himself, he shall trouble you: and his dread shall fall upon you.
12 – Your remembrance shall be compared to ashes, and your necks shall be brought to clay.
13 – Hold your peace a little while, that I may speak whatsoever my mind shall suggest to me.
14 – Why do I tear my flesh with my teeth, and carry my soul in my hands?
15 – Although he should bill me, I will trust in him: but yet I will reprove my ways in his sight.
16 – And he shall be my saviour: for no hypocrite shall come before his presence.
17 – Hear ye my speech, and receive with Sour ears hidden truths.
18 – If I shall be judged, I know that I shall be found just.
19 – Who is he that will plead against me? let him come: why am I consumed holding my peace?
20 – Two things only do not to me, and then from thy face I shall not be hid:
21 – Withdraw thy hand far from me, and let not thy dread terrify me.
22 – Call me, and I will answer thee: or else I will speak, and do thou answer me.
23 – How many are my iniquities and sins? make me know my crimes and offences.
24 – Why hidest thou thy face, and thinkest me thy enemy?
25 – Against a leaf, that is carried away with the wind, thou shewest thy power, and thou pursuest a dry straw.
26 – For thou writest bitter things against me, and wilt consume me for the sins of my youth.
27 – Thou hast put my feet in the stocks, and hast observed all my paths, and hast considered the steps of my feet:
28 – Who am to be consumed as rottenness, and as a garment that is moth-eaten.
