Job 12

12:1 And Iob answered, and sayd, 12:2 No doubt but ye are the people, and wisedome shall die with you. 12:3 But I haue vnderstanding as well as you, I am not inferiour to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these 12:4 I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth vpon God, and he answereth him: the iust vpright man is laughed to scorne. 12:5 He that is ready to slippe with his feet, is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease. 12:6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that prouoke God are secure, into whose hand God bringeth abundantly. 12:7 But aske now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the foules of the aire, and they shall tell thee. 12:8 Or speake to the earth, and it shall teach thee; and the fishes of the sea shall declare vnto thee. 12:9 Who knoweth not in all these, that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this 12:10 In whose hand is the soule of euery liuing thing, and the breath of all mankinde. 12:11 Doeth not the eare trie wordes And the mouth taste his meate 12:12 With the ancient is wisedome, and in length of dayes, vnderstanding. 12:13 With him is wisedome & strength, he hath counsell and vnderstanding. 12:14 Behold, he breaketh downe, and it cannot be built againe: hee shutteth vp a man, and there can be no opening. 12:15 Behold, hee withholdeth the waters, and they drie vp: also hee sendeth them out, and they ouerturne the earth. 12:16 With him is strength & wisedome: the deceiued, and the deceiuer, are his. 12:17 He leadeth counsellers away spoiled, and maketh the Iudges fooles. 12:18 He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loines with a girdle. 12:19 He leadeth Princes away spoiled, and ouerthroweth the mightie. 12:20 He remooueth away the speech of the trustie, and taketh away the vnderstanding of the aged. 12:21 He powreth contempt vpon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mightie. 12:22 Hee discouereth deepe things out of darkenesse, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death. 12:23 He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: hee inlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them againe. 12:24 He taketh away the heart of the chiefe of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wildernes where there is no way. 12:25 They grope in the darke without light, and hee maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.
