Job 24

24:1 Why, seeing Times are not hidden from the Almightie, doe they, that know him not, see his dayes 24:2 Some remooue the land-markes; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof. 24:3 They driue away the asse of the fatherlesse, they take the widowes oxe for a pledge. 24:4 They turne the needy out of the way: the poore of the earth hide themselues together. 24:5 Behold, as wilde asses in the desart, goe they foorth to their worke, rising betimes for a pray: the wildernes yeeldeth food for them, and for their children. 24:6 They reape euery one his corne in the fielde: and they gather the vintage of the wicked. 24:7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they haue no couering in the cold. 24:8 They are wet with the showres of the mountaines, and imbrace the rocke for want of a shelter. 24:9 They plucke the fatherlesse from the brest, and take a pledge of the poore. 24:10 They cause him to go naked without clothing: and they take away the sheafe from the hungry, 24:11 Which make oyle within their walles, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst. 24:12 Men groane from out of the city, and the soule of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them. 24:13 They are of those that rebell against the light, they know not the wayes thereof, nor abide in the pathes thereof. 24:14 The murderer rising with the light, killeth the poore and needy, and in the night is as a thiefe. 24:15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face. 24:16 In the darke they digge through houses which they had marked for themselues in the day time: they know not the light. 24:17 For the morning is to them euen as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrours of the shadow of death. 24:18 Hee is swift as the waters, their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the Uineyards. 24:19 Drought and heate consume the snow waters: so doeth the graue those which haue sinned. 24:20 The wombe shall forget him, the worme shall feed sweetly on him, hee shall be no more remembred, and wickednes shalbe broken as a tree. 24:21 He euill intreateth the barren, that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow. 24:22 He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth vp, and no man is sure of life. 24:23 Though it be giuen him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are vpon their wayes. 24:24 They are exalted for a litle while, but are gone and brought low, they are taken out of the way as al other, and cut off as the tops of the eares of corne. 24:25 And if it be not so now, who will make mee a liar, and make my speach nothing worth
