Chapter 27

1

 

 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said, 

 

 


2

 

 [As] God liveth, [who] hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, [who] hath vexed my soul; 

 

 


3

 

 All the while my breath [is] in me, and the spirit of God [is] in my nostrils; 

 

 


4

 

 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. 

 

 


5

 

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

 

 


6

 

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

 

 


7

 

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

 

 


8

 

 For what [is] the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? 

 

 


9

 

 Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him? 

 

 


10

 

 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God? 

 

 


11

 

 I will teach you by the hand of God: [that] which [is] with the Almighty will I not conceal. 

 

 


12

 

 Behold, all ye yourselves have seen [it]; why then are ye thus altogether vain? 

 

 


13

 

 This [is] the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, [which] they shall receive of the Almighty. 

 

 


14

 

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

 

 


15

 

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

 

 


16

 

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

 

 


17

 

 He may prepare [it], but the just shall put [it] on, and the innocent shall divide the silver. 

 

 


18

 

 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth [that] the keeper maketh. 

 

 


19

 

 The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he [is] not. 

 

 


20

 

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

 

 


21

 

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

 

 


22

 

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

 

 


23

 

 [Men] shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.
