Unchecked Copy BoxJob 27:2 -
As God liveth, who hath taken away my right,
And the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 27:3 -
(For my life is yet whole in me,
And the spirit of God is in my nostrils);
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 27:4 -
Surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness,
Neither shall my tongue utter deceit.

Far be it from me that I should justify you:
Till I die I will not put away mine integrity from me.

My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go:
My heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it;
Why then are ye become altogether vain?

And his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.

Those that remain of him shall be buried in death,
And his widows shall make no lamentation.

Though he heap up silver as the dust,
And prepare raiment as the clay;

He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on,
And the innocent shall divide the silver.

He buildeth his house as the moth,
And as a booth which the keeper maketh.

He openeth his eyes, and he is not.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 27:20 -
Terrors overtake him like waters;
A tempest stealeth him away in the night.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 27:21 -
The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth;
And it sweepeth him out of his place.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 27:22 -
For God shall hurl at him, and not spare:
He would fain flee out of his hand.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 27:23 -
Men shall clap their hands at him,
And shall hiss him out of his place.
