I madeH3772 a covenantH1285 with my eyes;H5869 whyH4100 then should I thinkH995 on a maid?H1330
For whatH4100 portionH2506 of GodH433 is there from above?H4605 and what inheritanceH5159 of the AlmightyH7706 from on high?H4791
Is not destructionH343 to the wicked?H5767 and a strangeH5235 punishment to the workersH6466 of iniquity?H205
Does not he seeH7200 my ways,H1870 and countH5608 allH3605 my steps?H6806
IfH518 I have walkedH1980 with vanity,H7723 or if my footH7272 has hurriedH2363 to deceit;H4820
Let me be weighedH8254 in an evenH6664 balanceH3976 that GodH433 may knowH3045 my integrity.H8538
IfH518 my stepH838 has turnedH5186 out of the way,H1870 and my heartH3820 walkedH1980 afterH310 my eyes,H5869 and if any blotH3971 has stuckH1692 to my hands;H3709
Then let me sow,H2232 and let anotherH312 eat;H398 yes, let my offspringH6631 be rootedH8327 out.
IfH518 my heartH3820 have been deceivedH6601 by a woman,H802 or if I have laid waitH693 atH5921 my neighbor'sH7453 door;H6607
Then let my wifeH802 grindH2912 to another,H312 and let othersH312 bowH3766 downH3766 on her.
For thisH1931 is an heinousH2154 crime;H2154 yes, it is an iniquityH5771 to be punished by the judges.H6414
For it is a fireH784 that consumesH398 to destruction,H11 and would rootH8327 out allH3605 my increase.H8393
IfH518 I did despiseH3988 the causeH4941 of my manservantH5650 or of my maidservant,H519 when they contendedH7378 with me;
WhatH4100 then shall I do whenH3588 GodH410 risesH6965 up? and whenH3588 he visits,H6485 whatH4100 shall I answerH7725 him?
Did not he that madeH6213 me in the wombH990 makeH6213 him? and did not oneH259 fashionH3559 us in the womb?H7358
IfH518 I have withheldH4513 the poorH1800 from their desire,H2656 or have caused the eyesH5869 of the widowH490 to fail;H3615
Or have eatenH398 my morselH6595 myself alone,H905 and the fatherlessH3490 has not eatenH398 thereof;
(For from my youthH5271 he was broughtH1431 up with me, as with a father,H1 and I have guidedH5148 her from my mother'sH517 womb;H990)
IfH518 I have seenH7200 any perishH6 for wantH1097 of clothing,H3830 or any poorH34 withoutH369 covering;H3682
IfH518 his loinsH2504 have not blessedH1288 me, and if he were not warmedH2552 with the fleeceH1488 of my sheep;H3532
IfH518 I have liftedH5130 up my handH3027 againstH5921 the fatherless,H3490 whenH3588 I sawH7200 my helpH5833 in the gate:H8179
Then let my armH3802 fallH5307 from my shoulderH7929 blade,H7929 and my armH248 be brokenH7665 from the bone.H7070
For destructionH343 from GodH410 was a terrorH6343 to me, and by reason of his highnessH7613 I couldH3201 not endure.
IfH518 I have madeH7760 goldH2091 my hope,H3689 or have saidH559 to the fine gold,H3800 You are my confidence;H4009
IfH518 I rejoiceH8055 becauseH3588 my wealthH2428 was great,H7227 and becauseH3588 my handH3027 had gottenH4672 much;H3524
IfH518 I beheldH7200 the sunH216 whenH3588 it shined,H1984 or the moonH3394 walkingH1980 in brightness;H3368
And my heartH3820 has been secretlyH5643 enticed,H6601 or my mouthH6310 has kissedH5401 my hand:H3027
ThisH1931 alsoH1571 were an iniquityH5771 to be punished by the judge:H6416 for I should have deniedH3584 the GodH410 that is above.H4605
IfH518 I rejoiceH8055 at the destructionH6365 of him that hatedH8130 me, or liftedH5782 up myself whenH3588 evilH7451 foundH4672 him:
NeitherH3808 have I sufferedH5414 my mouthH2441 to sinH2398 by wishingH7592 a curseH423 to his soul.H5315
IfH518 the menH4962 of my tabernacleH168 saidH559 not, Oh that we had of his flesh!H1320 we cannotH3808 be satisfied.H7646
The strangerH1616 did not lodgeH3885 in the street:H2351 but I openedH6605 my doorsH1817 to the travelers.H734
IfH518 I coveredH3680 my transgressionsH6588 as Adam,H121 by hidingH2934 my iniquityH5771 in my bosom:H2243
Did I fearH6206 a greatH7227 multitude,H1995 or did the contemptH937 of familiesH4940 terrifyH2865 me, that I kept silence,H1826 and wentH3318 not out of the door?H6607
Oh that one would hearH8085 me! behold,H2005 my desireH8420 is, that the AlmightyH7706 would answerH6030 me, and that my adversaryH376 H7379 had writtenH3789 a book.H5612
SurelyH518 H3808 I would takeH5375 it on my shoulder,H7926 and bindH6029 it as a crownH5850 to me.
I would declareH5046 to him the numberH4557 of my steps;H6806 as a princeH5057 would I goH7126 nearH7126 to him.
IfH518 my landH127 cryH2199 againstH5921 me, or that the furrowsH8525 likewiseH3162 thereof complain;H1058
IfH518 I have eatenH398 the fruitsH3581 thereof withoutH1097 money,H3701 or have caused the ownersH1167 thereof to loseH5307 their life:H5315
Let thistlesH2336 growH3318 insteadH8478 of wheat,H2406 and cockleH890 insteadH8478 of barley.H8184 The wordsH1697 of JobH347 are ended.H8552
