018:027:001
Moreover Job continued his parable,
and said,


018:027:002
As God liveth,
who hath taken away my judgment;
and the Almighty,
who hath vexed my soul;


018:027:003
All the while my breath is in me,
and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;


018:027:004
My lips shall not speak wickedness,
nor my tongue utter deceit.


018:027:005
God forbid that I should justify you:
till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.


018:027:006
My righteousness I hold fast,
and will not let it go:
my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.


018:027:007
Let mine enemy be as the wicked,
and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.


018:027:008
For what is the hope of the hypocrite,
though he hath gained,
when God taketh away his soul?


018:027:009
Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?


018:027:010
Will he delight himself in the Almighty?
will he always call upon God?


018:027:011
I will teach you by the hand of God:
that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.


018:027:012
Behold,
all ye yourselves have seen it;
why then are ye thus altogether vain?


018:027:013
This is the portion of a wicked man with God,
and the heritage of oppressors,
which they shall receive of the Almighty.


018:027:014
If his children be multiplied,
it is for the sword:
and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.


018:027:015
Those that remain of him shall be buried in death:
and his widows shall not weep.


018:027:016
Though he heap up silver as the dust,
and prepare raiment as the clay;


018:027:017
He may prepare it,
but the just shall put it on,
and the innocent shall divide the silver.


018:027:018
He buildeth his house as a moth,
and as a booth that the keeper maketh.


018:027:019
The rich man shall lie down,
but he shall not be gathered:
he openeth his eyes,
and he is not.


018:027:020
Terrors take hold on him as waters,
a tempest stealeth him away in the night.


018:027:021
The east wind carrieth him away,
and he departeth:
and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.


018:027:022
For God shall cast upon him,
and not spare:
he would fain flee out of his hand.


018:027:023
Men shall clap their hands at him,
and shall hiss him out of his place.
