Job 27

27:1 Moreouer Iob continued his parable, and sayd, 27:2 As God liueth, who hath taken away my iudgment, and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soule; 27:3 All the while my breath is in mee, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils; 27:4 My lips shall not speake wickednesse, nor my tongue vtter deceit. 27:5 God forbid that I should iustifie you: till I die, I will not remoue my integritie from me. 27:6 My righteousnesse I hold fast, and will not let it goe: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I liue. 27:7 Let mine enemie be as the wicked, and he that riseth vp against me, as the vnrighteous. 27:8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soule 27:9 Will God heare his cry, when trouble commeth vpon him 27:10 Will he delight himselfe in the Almightie will hee alwayes call vpon God 27:11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almightie, will I not conceale. 27:12 Behold, all ye your selues haue seene it, why then are yee thus altogether vaine 27:13 This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressours which they shall receiue of the Almightie. 27:14 If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offpring shall not be satisfied with bread. 27:15 Those that remaine of him shall bee buried in death: and his widowes shall not weepe. 27:16 Though he heape vp siluer as the dust, and prepare rayment as the clay: 27:17 He may prepare it, but the iust shall put it on, and the innocent shall diuide the siluer. 27:18 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh. 27:19 The rich man shall lie downe, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not: 27:20 Terrours take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night. 27:21 The East winde carieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storme hurleth him out of his place. 27:22 For God shall cast vpon him, and not spare: hee would faine flee out of his hand. 27:23 Men shall clap their handes at him, and shall hisse him out of his place.
