018:021:001
But Job answered and said,


018:021:002
Hear diligently my speech,
and let this be your consolations.


018:021:003
Suffer me that I may speak;
and after that I have spoken,
mock on.


018:021:004
As for me,
is my complaint to man?
and if it were so,
why should not my spirit be troubled?


018:021:005
Mark me,
and be astonished,
and lay your hand upon your mouth.


018:021:006
Even when I remember I am afraid,
and trembling taketh hold on my flesh.


018:021:007
Wherefore do the wicked live,
become old,
yea,
are mighty in power?


018:021:008
Their seed is established in their sight with them,
and their offspring before their eyes.


018:021:009
Their houses are safe from fear,
neither is the rod of God upon them.


018:021:010
Their bull gendereth,
and faileth not;
their cow calveth,
and casteth not her calf.


018:021:011
They send forth their little ones like a flock,
and their children dance.


018:021:012
They take the timbrel and harp,
and rejoice at the sound of the organ.


018:021:013
They spend their days in wealth,
and in a moment go down to the grave.


018:021:014
Therefore they say unto God,
Depart from us;
for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.


018:021:015
What is the Almighty,
that we should serve him?
and what profit should we have,
if we pray unto him?


018:021:016
Lo,
their good is not in their hand:
the counsel of the wicked is far from me.


018:021:017
How oft is the candle of the wicked put out!
and how oft cometh their destruction upon them!
God distributeth sorrows in his anger.


018:021:018
They are as stubble before the wind,
and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.


018:021:019
God layeth up his iniquity for his children:
he rewardeth him,
and he shall know it.


018:021:020
His eyes shall see his destruction,
and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty.


018:021:021
For what pleasure hath he in his house after him,
when the number of his months is cut off in the midst?


018:021:022
Shall any teach God knowledge?
seeing he judgeth those that are high.


018:021:023
One dieth in his full strength,
being wholly at ease and quiet.


018:021:024
His breasts are full of milk,
and his bones are moistened with marrow.


018:021:025
And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul,
and never eateth with pleasure.


018:021:026
They shall lie down alike in the dust,
and the worms shall cover them.


018:021:027
Behold,
I know your thoughts,
and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me.


018:021:028
For ye say,
Where is the house of the prince?
and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?


018:021:029
Have ye not asked them that go by the way?
and do ye not know their tokens,


018:021:030
That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction?
they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.


018:021:031
Who shall declare his way to his face?
and who shall repay him what he hath done?


018:021:032
Yet shall he be brought to the grave,
and shall remain in the tomb.


018:021:033
The clods of the valley shall be sweet unto him,
and every man shall draw after him,
as there are innumerable before him.


018:021:034
How then comfort ye me in vain,
seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?
