Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:1 -
I made a covenant with mine eyes;
How then should I look upon a virgin?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:2 -
For what is the portion from God above,
And the heritage from the Almighty on high?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:3 -
Is it not calamity to the unrighteous,
And disaster to the workers of iniquity?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:4 -
Doth not he see my ways,
And number all my steps?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:5 -
If I have walked with falsehood,
And my foot hath hasted to deceit

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:6 -
(Let me be weighed in an even balance,
That God may know mine integrity);

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:7 -
If my step hath turned out of the way,
And my heart walked after mine eyes,
And if any spot hath cleaved to my hands:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:8 -
Then let me sow, and let another eat;
Yea, let the produce of my field be rooted out.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:9 -
If my heart hath been enticed unto a woman,
And I have laid wait at my neighbor’s door;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:10 -
Then let my wife grind unto another,
And let others bow down upon her.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:11 -
For that were a heinous crime;
Yea, it were an iniquity to be punished by the judges:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:12 -
For it is a fire that consumeth unto Destruction,
And would root out all mine increase.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:13 -
If I have despised the cause of my man-servant or of my maid-servant,
When they contended with me;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:14 -
What then shall I do when God riseth up?
And when he visiteth, what shall I answer him?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:15 -
Did not he that made me in the womb make him?
And did not one fashion us in the womb?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:16 -
If I have withheld the poor from their desire,
Or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:17 -
Or have eaten my morsel alone,
And the fatherless hath not eaten thereof

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:18 -
(Nay, from my youth he grew up with me as with a father,
And her have I guided from my mother’s womb);

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:19 -
If I have seen any perish for want of clothing,
Or that the needy had no covering;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:20 -
If his loins have not blessed me,
And if he hath not been warmed with the fleece of my sheep;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:21 -
If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless,
Because I saw my help in the gate:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:22 -
Then let my shoulder fall from the shoulder-blade,
And mine arm be broken from the bone.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:23 -
For calamity from God is a terror to me,
And by reason of his majesty I can do nothing.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:24 -
If I have made gold my hope,
And have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:25 -
If I have rejoiced because my wealth was great,
And because my hand had gotten much;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:26 -
If I have beheld the sun when it shined,
Or the moon walking in brightness,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:27 -
And my heart hath been secretly enticed,
And my mouth hath kissed my hand:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:28 -
This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judges;
For I should have denied the God that is above.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:29 -
If I have rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me,
Or lifted up myself when evil found him

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:30 -
(Yea, I have not suffered by mouth to sin
By asking his life with a curse);

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:31 -
If the men of my tent have not said,
Who can find one that hath not been filled with his meat?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:32 -
(The sojourner hath not lodged in the street;
But I have opened my doors to the traveller);

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:33 -
If like Adam I have covered my transgressions,
By hiding mine iniquity in my bosom,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:34 -
Because I feared the great multitude,
And the contempt of families terrified me,
So that I kept silence, and went not out of the door—

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:35 -
Oh that I had one to hear me!
(Lo, here is my signature, let the Almighty answer me)
And that I had the indictment which mine adversary hath written!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:36 -
Surely I would carry it upon my shoulder;
I would bind it unto me as a crown:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:37 -
I would declare unto him the number of my steps;
As a prince would I go near unto him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:38 -
If my land crieth out against me,
And the furrows thereof weep together;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:39 -
If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money,
Or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 31:40 -
Let thistles grow instead of wheat,
And cockle instead of barley.
The words of Job are ended.
