Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:16 - If I had called, and he had answered me, I would not believe that he hearkened to my voice, --
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:17 - He, who crusheth me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:18 - He suffereth me not to take my breath, for he filleth me with bitternesses.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:24 - The earth is given over into the hand of the wicked man; he covereth the faces of its judges. If not, who then is it?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:25 - And my days are swifter than a runner: they flee away, they see no good.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:26 - They pass by like skiffs of reed; as an eagle that swoops upon the prey.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:27 - If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my sad countenance, and brighten up,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:29 - Be it that I am wicked, why then do I labour in vain?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:30 - If I washed myself with snow-water, and cleansed my hands in purity,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:31 - Then wouldest thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes would abhor me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:34 - Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his terror make me afraid,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 9:35 - Then I will speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
