Job 28

28:1 Surely there is a veine for the siluer, and a place for golde where they fine it. 28:2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and brasse is molten out of the stone. 28:3 Hee setteth an ende to darkenesse, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkenesse and the shadow of death. 28:4 The floud breaketh out from the inhabitant; euen the waters forgotten of the foote: they are dried vp, they are gone away from men. 28:5 As for the earth, out of it commeth bread: and vnder it, is turned vp as it were fire. 28:6 The stones of it are the place of Saphires: and it hath dust of golde. 28:7 There is a path which no foule knoweth, and which the vulturs eye hath not seene. 28:8 The lyons whelps haue not troden it, nor the fierce lyon passed by it. 28:9 Hee putteth foorth his hand vpon the rocke; hee ouerturneth the mountaines by the rootes. 28:10 Hee cutteth out riuers among the rockes, and his eye seeth euery precious thing. 28:11 He bindeth the flouds from ouerflowing, and the thing that is hid, bringeth he foorth to light. 28:12 But where shall wisedome bee found And where is the place of vnderstanding 28:13 Man knoweth not the price thereof neither is it found in the land of the liuing. 28:14 The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me. 28:15 It cannot be gotten for golde, neither shall siluer be weighed for the price thereof. 28:16 It cannot be valued with the golde of Ophir, with the precious Onix, or the Saphire. 28:17 The golde and the chrystall cannot equall it: and the exchange of it shall not be for iewels of fine golde. 28:18 No mention shalbe made of Corall, or of Pearles: for the price of wisedome is aboue Rubies. 28:19 The Topaze of Ethiopia shall not equall it, neither shall it be valued with pure golde. 28:20 Whence then commeth wisedome and where is the place of vnderstanding 28:21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all liuing, and kept close from the foules of the ayre. 28:22 Destruction and death say, Wee haue heard the fame thereof with our eares. 28:23 God vnderstandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof. 28:24 For hee looketh to the endes of the earth, and seeth vnder the whole heauen: 28:25 To make the weight for the windes, and he weigheth the waters by measure. 28:26 When hee made a decree for the raine, and a way for the lightning of the thunder: 28:27 Then did he see it, and declare it, he prepared it, yea and searched it out. 28:28 And vnto man he said, Behold, the feare of the Lord, that is wisedome, and to depart from euill, is vnderstanding.
