018:012:001
And Job answered and said,


018:012:002
No doubt but ye are the people,
and wisdom shall die with you.


018:012:003
But I have understanding as well as you;
I am not inferior to you:
yea,
who knoweth not such things as these?


018:012:004
I am as one mocked of his neighbour,
who calleth upon God,
and he answereth him:
the just upright man is laughed to scorn.


018:012:005
He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.


018:012:006
The tabernacles of robbers prosper,
and they that provoke God are secure;
into whose hand God bringeth abundantly.


018:012:007
But ask now the beasts,
and they shall teach thee;
and the fowls of the air,
and they shall tell thee:


018:012:008
Or speak to the earth,
and it shall teach thee:
and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.


018:012:009
Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?


018:012:010
In whose hand is the soul of every living thing,
and the breath of all mankind.


018:012:011
Doth not the ear try words?
and the mouth taste his meat?


018:012:012
With the ancient is wisdom;
and in length of days understanding.


018:012:013
With him is wisdom and strength,
he hath counsel and understanding.


018:012:014
Behold,
he breaketh down,
and it cannot be built again:
he shutteth up a man,
and there can be no opening.


018:012:015
Behold,
he withholdeth the waters,
and they dry up:
also he sendeth them out,
and they overturn the earth.


018:012:016
With him is strength and wisdom:
the deceived and the deceiver are his.


018:012:017
He leadeth counsellors away spoiled,
and maketh the judges fools.


018:012:018
He looseth the bond of kings,
and girdeth their loins with a girdle.


018:012:019
He leadeth princes away spoiled,
and overthroweth the mighty.


018:012:020
He removeth away the speech of the trusty,
and taketh away the understanding of the aged.


018:012:021
He poureth contempt upon princes,
and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.


018:012:022
He discovereth deep things out of darkness,
and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.


018:012:023
He increaseth the nations,
and destroyeth them:
he enlargeth the nations,
and straiteneth them again.


018:012:024
He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth,
and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.


018:012:025
They grope in the dark without light,
and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.
