But JobH347 answeredH6030 and said,H559
HearH8085 diligently my speech,H4405 and let thisH2063 be your consolations.H8575
SufferH5375 me that I may speak;H1696 and afterH310 that I have spoken,H1696 mockH3932 on.
As for me, is my complaintH7879 to man?H120 and ifH518 it were so, whyH4069 should not my spiritH7307 be troubled?H7114
MarkH6437 me, and be astonished,H8074 and layH7760 your handH3027 on your mouth.H6310
Even whenH518 I rememberH2142 I am afraid,H926 and tremblingH6427 takesH270 holdH270 on my flesh.H1320
WhyH4069 do the wickedH7563 live,H2421 becomeH6275 old,H6275 yes,H1571 are mightyH1396 in power?H2428
Their seedH2233 is establishedH3559 in their sightH6440 with them, and their offspringH6631 before their eyes.H5869
Their housesH1004 are safeH7965 from fear,H6343 neitherH3808 is the rodH7626 of GodH433 on them.
Their bullH7794 engenders,H5674 and failsH1602 not; their cowH6510 calves,H6403 and castsH7921 not her calf.
They sendH7971 forth their littleH5759 ones like a flock,H6629 and their childrenH3206 dance.H7540
They takeH5375 the tambourineH8596 and harp,H3658 and rejoiceH8055 at the soundH6963 of the organ.H5748
They spendH1086 H3615 their daysH3117 in wealth,H2896 and in a momentH7281 goH5181 downH5181 to the grave.H7585
Therefore they sayH559 to God,H410 DepartH5493 from us; for we desireH2654 not the knowledgeH1847 of your ways.H1870
WhatH4100 is the Almighty,H7706 that we should serveH5647 him? and whatH4100 profitH3276 should we have, ifH3588 we prayH6293 to him?
See,H2005 their goodH2898 is not in their hand:H3027 the counselH6098 of the wickedH7563 is farH7350 from me.
HowH4100 oft is the candleH5216 of the wickedH7563 putH1846 out! and how oft comesH935 their destructionH343 on them! God distributesH2505 sorrowsH2256 in his anger.H639
They are as stubbleH8401 beforeH6440 the wind,H7307 and as chaffH4671 that the stormH5492 carriesH1589 away.H1589
GodH433 laysH6845 up his iniquityH205 for his children:H1121 he rewardsH7999 him, and he shall knowH3045 it.
His eyesH5869 shall seeH7200 his destruction,H3589 and he shall drinkH8354 of the wrathH2534 of the Almighty.H7706
For whatH4100 pleasureH2656 has he in his houseH1004 afterH310 him, when the numberH4557 of his monthsH2320 is cutH2686 off in the middle?H2686
Shall any teachH3925 GodH410 knowledge?H1847 seeing he judgesH8199 those that are high.H7311
One diesH4191 in his fullH8537 strength,H6106 being whollyH3605 at easeH7946 and quiet.H7961
His breastsH5845 are fullH4390 of milk,H2461 and his bonesH6106 are moistenedH8248 with marrow.H4221
And anotherH2088 diesH4191 in the bitternessH4751 of his soul,H5315 and neverH3808 eatsH398 with pleasure.H2896
They shall lieH7901 downH7901 alikeH3162 in the dust,H6083 and the wormsH7415 shall coverH3680 them.
Behold,H2005 I knowH3045 your thoughts,H4284 and the devicesH4209 which you wrongfullyH2554 imagineH2554 againstH5921 me.
For you say,H559 WhereH346 is the houseH1004 of the prince?H5081 and whereH346 are the dwellingH4908 placesH168 of the wicked?H7563
Have you not askedH7592 them that goH5674 by the way?H1870 and do you not knowH5234 their tokens,H226
That the wickedH7451 is reservedH2820 to the dayH3117 of destruction?H343 they shall be broughtH2986 forth to the dayH3117 of wrath.H5678
WhoH4310 shall declareH5046 his wayH1870 to his face?H6440 and whoH4310 shall repayH7999 him what he has done?H6213
Yet shall he be broughtH2986 to the grave,H6913 and shall remainH8245 in the tomb.H1430
The clodsH7263 of the valleyH5158 shall be sweetH4985 to him, and everyH3605 manH120 shall drawH4900 afterH310 him, as there are innumerableH369 H4557 beforeH6440 him.
HowH349 then comfortH5162 you me in vain,H1892 seeing in your answersH8666 there remainsH7604 falsehood?H4604
