18-1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
18-1:3 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.
18-1:5 And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.
18-1:8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
18-1:10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
18-1:11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
18-1:12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.
18-2:3 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.
18-2:4 And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.
18-2:11 Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.
18-2:13 So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.
18-3:4 Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
18-3:6 As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.
18-3:7 Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.
18-3:8 Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.
18-3:12 Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?
18-3:15 Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver:
18-3:20 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;
18-3:25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
18-4:4 Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees.
18-4:8 Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.
18-4:19 How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?
18-5:1 Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?
18-5:11 To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.
18-5:12 He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
18-5:24 And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.
18-5:25 Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.
18-6:2 Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together!
18-6:6 Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
18-6:7 The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.
18-6:8 Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
18-6:9 Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
18-6:11 What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?
18-6:14 To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
18-6:26 Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?
18-7:7 O remember that my life is wind: mine eye shall no more see good.
18-7:8 The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not.
18-7:9 As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more.
18-7:12 Am I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch over me?
18-7:15 So that my soul chooseth strangling, and death rather than my life.
18-7:17 What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?
18-7:18 And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?
18-7:20 I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?
18-8:13 So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite’s hope shall perish:
18-8:22 They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.
18-9:16 If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.
18-9:26 They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.
18-9:28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.
18-9:32 For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.
18-9:33 Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.
18-10:3 Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
18-10:6 That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?
18-10:7 Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.
18-10:9 Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?
18-10:13 And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.
18-10:18 Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!
18-10:20 Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,
18-11:5 But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee;
18-11:6 And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
18-11:16 Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:
18-12:5 He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.
18-12:6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly.
18-12:9 Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?
18-13:5 O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.
18-13:9 Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him?
18-13:13 Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will.
18-13:18 Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.
18-13:19 Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.
18-13:28 And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.
18-14:1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
18-14:5 Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;
18-14:6 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.
18-14:7 For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
18-14:13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
18-15:7 Art thou the first man that was born? or wast thou made before the hills?
18-15:9 What knowest thou, that we know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us?
18-15:13 That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth?
18-15:14 What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
18-15:17 I will shew thee, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare;
18-15:22 He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword.
18-15:23 He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.
18-15:31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.
18-16:3 Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest?
18-16:21 O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour!
18-17:3 Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strike hands with me?
18-17:5 He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.
18-17:9 The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
18-18:20 They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.
18-18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.
18-19:3 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.
18-19:4 And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.
18-19:6 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.
18-19:8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
18-19:15 They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.
18-19:23 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!
18-19:24 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!
18-19:25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
18-19:29 Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
18-20:5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
18-20:18 That which he laboured for shall he restore, and shall not swallow it down: according to his substance shall the restitution be, and he shall not rejoice therein.
18-20:20 Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.
18-20:26 All darkness shall be hid in his secret places: a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.
18-21:3 Suffer me that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on.
18-21:15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?
18-21:18 They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.
18-21:22 Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.
18-21:29 Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,
18-21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.
18-22:2 Can a man be profitable unto God, as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself?
18-22:3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? or is it gain to him, that thou makest thy ways perfect?
18-22:11 Or darkness, that thou canst not see; and abundance of waters cover thee.
18-22:14 Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.
18-23:3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!
18-23:9 On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:
18-23:10 But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
18-23:13 But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.
18-23:14 For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him.
18-24:1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
18-24:7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.
18-24:13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
18-24:21 He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.
18-25:4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?
18-25:6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?
18-26:2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?
18-26:3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?
18-27:5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.
18-27:7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.
18-27:11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.
18-27:15 Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep.
18-27:18 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh.
18-28:11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.
18-28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
18-29:2 Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me;
18-29:12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.
18-29:13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.
18-29:25 I chose out their way, and sat chief, and dwelt as a king in the army, as one that comforteth the mourners.
18-30:1 But now they that are younger than I have me in derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.
18-30:23 For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living.
18-30:25 Did not I weep for him that was in trouble? was not my soul grieved for the poor?
18-30:31 My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.
18-31:6 Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know mine integrity.
18-31:12 For it is a fire that consumeth to destruction, and would root out all mine increase.
18-31:15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?
18-31:28 This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: for I should have denied the God that is above.
18-31:29 If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me, or lifted up myself when evil found him:
18-31:31 If the men of my tabernacle said not, Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied.
18-31:34 Did I fear a great multitude, or did the contempt of families terrify me, that I kept silence, and went not out of the door?
18-31:35 Oh that one would hear me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me, and that mine adversary had written a book.
18-31:38 If my land cry against me, or that the furrows likewise thereof complain;
18-32:5 When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.
18-32:12 Yea, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:
18-32:20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.
18-33:12 Behold, in this thou art not just: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.
18-33:17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
18-33:20 So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.
18-33:21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.
18-33:27 He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;
18-34:2 Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.
18-34:9 For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.
18-34:10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.
18-34:17 Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?
18-34:19 How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.
18-34:23 For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God.
18-34:25 Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.
18-34:28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.
18-34:30 That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.
18-34:32 That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.
18-34:36 My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men.
18-35:2 Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God’s?
18-36:2 Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God’s behalf.
18-36:4 For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.
18-36:9 Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.
18-36:10 He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.
18-36:16 Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness.
18-36:24 Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold.
18-36:32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt.
18-37:2 Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
18-37:7 He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.
18-37:12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.
18-37:20 Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.
18-37:24 Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
18-38:2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
18-38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
18-38:20 That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
18-38:34 Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
18-38:35 Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?
18-39:2 Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
18-39:12 Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?
18-39:15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.
18-39:24 He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.
18-40:2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.
18-40:8 Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?
18-40:11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him.
18-40:12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
18-40:14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.
18-40:19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
18-40:23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
18-41:10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?
18-41:11 Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.
18-41:16 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.
18-41:17 They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.
18-41:26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.
18-42:2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.
18-42:3 Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
18-42:7 And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
18-42:8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.
18-42:11 Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.
