Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:1 - Since times are not hidden from the Almighty,
Why do those who know Him see not His days?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:2 - Some remove landmarks;
They seize flocks violently and feed on them;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:3 - They drive away the donkey of the fatherless;
They take the widow’s ox as a pledge.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:4 - They push the needy off the road;
All the poor of the land are forced to hide.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:5 - Indeed, like wild donkeys in the desert,
They go out to their work, searching for food.
The wilderness yields food for them and for their children.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:6 - They gather their fodder in the field
And glean in the vineyard of the wicked.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:7 - They spend the night naked, without clothing,
And have no covering in the cold.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:8 - They are wet with the showers of the mountains,
And huddle around the rock for want of shelter.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:9 - Some snatch the fatherless from the breast,
And take a pledge from the poor.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:10 - They cause the poor to go naked, without clothing;
And they take away the sheaves from the hungry.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:11 - They press out oil within their walls,
And tread winepresses, yet suffer thirst.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:12 - The dying groan in the city,
And the souls of the wounded cry out;
Yet God does not charge them with wrong.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:13 - “There are those who rebel against the light;
They do not know its ways
Nor abide in its paths.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:14 - The murderer rises with the light;
He kills the poor and needy;
And in the night he is like a thief.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:15 - The eye of the adulterer waits for the twilight,
Saying, ‘No eye will see me’;
And he disguises his face.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:16 - In the dark they break into houses
Which they marked for themselves in the daytime;
They do not know the light.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:17 - For the morning is the same to them as the shadow of death;
If someone recognizes them,
They are in the terrors of the shadow of death.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:18 - “They should be swift on the face of the waters,
Their portion should be cursed in the earth,
So that no one would turn into the way of their vineyards.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:19 - As drought and heat consume the snow waters,
So the grave[fn] consumes those who have sinned.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:20 - The womb should forget him,
The worm should feed sweetly on him;
He should be remembered no more,
And wickedness should be broken like a tree.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:21 - For he preys on the barren who do not bear,
And does no good for the widow.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:22 - “But God draws the mighty away with His power;
He rises up, but no man is sure of life.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:23 - He gives them security, and they rely on it;
Yet His eyes are on their ways.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:24 - They are exalted for a little while,
Then they are gone.
They are brought low;
They are taken out of the way like all others;
They dry out like the heads of grain.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 24:25 - “Now if it is not so, who will prove me a liar,
And make my speech worth nothing?”
