Job 27

27:1 And Job addeth to lift up his simile, and saith: -- 27:2 God liveth! He turned aside my judgment, And the Mighty--He made my soul bitter. 27:3 For all the while my breath [is] in me, And the spirit of God in my nostrils. 27:4 My lips do not speak perverseness, And my tongue doth not utter deceit. 27:5 Pollution to me--if I justify you, Till I expire I turn not aside mine integrity from me. 27:6 On my righteousness I have laid hold, And I do not let it go, My heart doth not reproach me while I live.  27:7 As the wicked is my enemy, And my withstander as the perverse. 27:8 For what [is] the hope of the profane, When He doth cut off When God doth cast off his soul 27:9 His cry doth God hear, When distress cometh on him 27:10 On the Mighty doth he delight himself Call God at all times  27:11 I shew you by the hand of God, That which [is] with the Mighty I hide not. 27:12 Lo, ye--all of you--have seen, And why [is] this--ye are altogether vain 27:13 This [is] the portion of wicked man with God, And the inheritance of terrible ones From the Mighty they receive. 27:14 If his sons multiply--for them [is] a sword. And his offspring [are] not satisfied [with] bread. 27:15 His remnant in death are buried, And his widows do not weep. 27:16 If he heap up as dust silver, And as clay prepare clothing, 27:17 He prepareth--and the righteous putteth [it] on, And the silver the innocent doth apportion. 27:18 He hath built as a moth his house, And as a booth a watchman hath made. 27:19 Rich he lieth down, and he is not gathered, His eyes he hath opened, and he is not. 27:20 Overtake him as waters do terrors, By night stolen him away hath a whirlwind. 27:21 Take him up doth an east wind, and he goeth, And it frighteneth him from his place, 27:22 And it casteth at him, and doth not spare, From its hand he diligently fleeth. 27:23 It clappeth at him its hands, And it hisseth at him from his place.
