Job - Chapter 027

27:1
And Job again took up his parable, and said:

27:2
As God liveth, who hath taken away my right; and the Almighty, who hath dealt bitterly with me;

27:3
All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils,

27:4
Surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness, neither shall my tongue utter deceit;

27:5
Far be it from me that I should justify you; till I die I will not put away mine integrity from me.

27:6
My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go; my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

27:7
Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and let him that riseth up against me be as the unrighteous.

27:8
For what is the hope of the godless, though he get him gain, when God taketh away his soul?

27:9
Will God hear his cry, when trouble cometh upon him?

27:10
Will he have his delight in the Almighty, and call upon God at all times?

27:11
I will teach you concerning the hand of God; that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.

27:12
Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye become altogether vain?

27:13
This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they receive from the Almighty.

27:14
If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword; and his offspring shall not have bread enough.

27:15
Those that remain of him shall be buried by pestilence, and his widows shall make no lamentation.

27:16
Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;

27:17
He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.

27:18
He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth which the keeper maketh.

27:19
He lieth down rich, but there shall be not to gather; he openeth his eyes, and his wealth is not.

27:20
Terrors overtake him like waters; a tempest stealeth him away in the night.

27:21
The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth; and it sweepeth him out of his place.

27:22
Yea, it hurleth at him, and spareth not; he would fain flee from its power.

27:23
Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.
