Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:2 - “Should a wise man answer with empty knowledge,
And fill himself with the east wind?

Or by speeches with which he can do no good?

And restrain prayer before God.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:5 - For your iniquity teaches your mouth,
And you choose the tongue of the crafty.

Yes, your own lips testify against you.

Or were you made before the hills?

Much older than your father.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:11 - Are the consolations of God too small for you,
And the word spoken gently[fn] with you?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:12 - Why does your heart carry you away,
And what do your eyes wink at,

And let such words go out of your mouth?

And the heavens are not pure in His sight,

Who drinks iniquity like water!

What I have seen I will declare,

Not hiding anything received from their fathers,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:19 - To whom alone the land was given,
And no alien passed among them:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:20 - The wicked man writhes with pain all his days,
And the number of years is hidden from the oppressor.

In prosperity the destroyer comes upon him.

For a sword is waiting for him.

He knows that a day of darkness is ready at his hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:24 - Trouble and anguish make him afraid;
They overpower him, like a king ready for battle.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:25 - For he stretches out his hand against God,
And acts defiantly against the Almighty,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:26 - Running stubbornly against Him
With his strong, embossed shield.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:27 - “Though he has covered his face with his fatness,
And made his waist heavy with fat,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:28 - He dwells in desolate cities,
In houses which no one inhabits,
Which are destined to become ruins.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:29 - He will not be rich,
Nor will his wealth continue,
Nor will his possessions overspread the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:30 - He will not depart from darkness;
The flame will dry out his branches,
And by the breath of His mouth he will go away.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:31 - Let him not trust in futile things, deceiving himself,
For futility will be his reward.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:32 - It will be accomplished before his time,
And his branch will not be green.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:33 - He will shake off his unripe grape like a vine,
And cast off his blossom like an olive tree.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:34 - For the company of hypocrites will be barren,
And fire will consume the tents of bribery.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:35 - They conceive trouble and bring forth futility;
Their womb prepares deceit.”
