Job 21

21:1 But Iob answered, and sayd, 21:2 Heare diligently my speech, and let this be your consolations. 21:3 Suffer me that I may speake, and after that I haue spoken, mocke on. 21:4 As for mee, is my complaint to man and if it were so, why should not my spirit be troubled 21:5 Marke mee, and be astonished, and lay your hand vpon your mouth. 21:6 Euen when I remember, I am afraid, and trembling taketh holde on my flesh. 21:7 Wherefore doe the wicked liue, become old, yea, are mightie in power 21:8 Their seede is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes. 21:9 Their houses are safe from feare, neither is the rod of God vpon them. 21:10 Their bull gendreth and faileth not, their cow calueth, and casteth not her calfe. 21:11 They send foorth their little ones like a flocke, and their children dance. 21:12 They take the timbrell and harpe, and reioyce at the sound of the organe. 21:13 They spend their daies in wealth, and in a moment goe downe to the graue. 21:14 Therefore they say vnto God, Depart from vs: for we desire not the knowledge of thy wayes. 21:15 What is the Almightie, that wee should serue him and what profite should we haue, if we pray vnto him 21:16 Loe, their good is not in their hand, the counsell of the wicked is farre from me. 21:17 How oft is the candle of the wicked put out and how oft commeth their destruction vpon them God distributeth sorrowes in his anger. 21:18 They are as stubble before the winde, and as chaffe that the storme carieth away. 21:19 God layeth vp his iniquitie for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it. 21:20 His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drinke of the wrath of the Almightie. 21:21 For what pleasure hath he in his house after him, when the number of his moneths is cut off in the middest 21:22 Shall any teach God knowledge seeing he iudgeth those that are high. 21:23 One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet. 21:24 His breasts are full of milke, and his bones are moistened with marrow. 21:25 And another dieth in the bitternesse of his soule, and neuer eateth with pleasure. 21:26 They shall lie downe alike in the dust, and the wormes shall couer them. 21:27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the deuices which yee wrongfully imagine against me. 21:28 For ye say, where is the house of the prince and where are the dwelling places of the wicked 21:29 Haue ye not asked them that goe by the way and doe ye not know their tokens 21:30 That the wicked is reserued to the day of destruction; they shall bee brought foorth to the day of wrath. 21:31 Who shall declare his way to his face and who shall repay him what he hath done 21:32 Yet shall hee be brought to the graue, & shall remaine in the tombe. 21:33 The cloudes of the valley shalbe sweete vnto him, and euery man shall draw after him, as there are innumerable before him. 21:34 How then comfort ye me in vaine, seeing in your answeres there remaineth falshood
