Hear diligently my speech;
And let this be your consolations.

Suffer me, and I also will speak;
And after that I have spoken, mock on.

As for me, is my complaint to man?
And why should I not be impatient?

And lay your hand upon your mouth.

Even when I remember I am troubled,
And horror taketh hold on my flesh.

Become old, yea, wax mighty in power?

Their houses are safe from fear,
Neither is the rod of God upon them.

They send forth their little ones like a flock,
And their children dance.

They sing to the timbrel and harp,
And rejoice at the sound of the pipe.

And in a moment they go down to Sheol.

And they say unto God, Depart from us;
For we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.

What is the Almighty, that we should serve him?
And what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:16 -
Lo, their prosperity is not in their hand:
The counsel of the wicked is far from me.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:17 -
How oft is it that the lamp of the wicked is put out?
That their calamity cometh upon them?
That God distributeth sorrows in his anger?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:18 -
That they are as stubble before the wind,
And as chaff that the storm carrieth away?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:19 -
Ye say, God layeth up his iniquity for his children.
Let him recompense it unto himself, that he may know it:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:20 -
Let his own eyes see his destruction,
And let him drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:21 -
For what careth he for his house after him,
When the number of his months is cut off?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:22 -
Shall any teach God knowledge,
Seeing he judgeth those that are high?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:23 -
One dieth in his full strength,
Being wholly at ease and quiet:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:24 -
His pails are full of milk,
And the marrow of his bones is moistened.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:25 -
And another dieth in bitterness of soul,
And never tasteth of good.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:26 -
They lie down alike in the dust,
And the worm covereth them.

Behold, I know your thoughts,
And the devices wherewith ye would wrong me.

For ye say, Where is the house of the prince?
And where is the tent wherein the wicked dwelt?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:29 -
Have ye not asked wayfaring men?
And do ye not know their evidences,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:30 -
That the evil man is reserved to the day of calamity?
That they are led forth to the day of wrath?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:31 -
Who shall declare his way to his face?
And who shall repay him what he hath done?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:32 -
Yet shall he be borne to the grave,
And men shall keep watch over the tomb.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:33 -
The clods of the valley shall be sweet unto him,
And all men shall draw after him,
As there were innumerable before him.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 21:34 -
How then comfort ye me in vain,
Seeing in your answers there remaineth only falsehood?
