18 Job

(K.J.V. 1611) .

18-1:1††††† There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Iob, and that man was perfect and vpright, and one that feared God, and eschewed euill.

18-1:2††††† And there were borne vnto him seuen sonnes, and three daughters.

18-1:3††††† His substance also was seuen thousand sheepe, and three thousand camels, and fiue hundred yoke of oxen, and fiue hundred shee asses, and a very great houshold; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the East.

18-1:4††††† And his sonnes went and feasted in their houses, euery one his day, and sent and called for their three sisters, to eate and to drinke with them.

18-1:5††††† And it was so, when the dayes of their feasting were gone about, that Iob sent and sanctified them, and rose vp early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: For Iob said, It may be that my sonnes haue sinned, and cursed God in their hearts: Thus did Iob continually.

18-1:6††††† Now there was a day, when the sons of God came to present themselues before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

18-1:7††††† And the Lord said vnto Satan, Whence commest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and sayde, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking vp and downe in it.

18-1:8††††† And the Lord sayd vnto Satan, Hast thou considered my seruant Iob, that there is none like him in the earth? A perfect and an vpright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth euill?

18-1:9††††† Then Satan answered ye Lord, and sayd, Doeth Iob feare God for nought?

18-1:10†††† Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on euery side? Thou hast blessed the worke of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

18-1:11†††† But put foorth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

18-1:12†††† And the Lord said vnto Satan, Behold, all that hee hath is in thy power, onely vpon himselfe put not foorth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

18-1:13†††† And there was a day, when his sonnes and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house:

18-1:14†††† And there came a messenger vnto Iob, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them,

18-1:15†††† And the Sabeans fell vpon them, and tooke them away: yea they haue slaine the seruants with the edge of the sword, and I onely am escaped alone, to tell thee.

18-1:16†††† While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heauen, and hath burnt vp the sheepe, and the seruants, and consumed them, and I onely am escaped alone, to tell thee.

18-1:17†††† While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Caldeans made out three bands, and fell vpon the camels, and haue caried them away, yea, and slaine the seruants with the edge of the sword, and I onely am escaped alone, to tell thee.

18-1:18†††† While he was yet speaking, there came also another, & said, Thy sonnes, and thy daughters, were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house.

18-1:19†††† And beholde, there came a great winde from the wildernes, and smote the foure corners of the house, and it fell vpon the yong men, and they are dead, and I onely am escaped alone to tell thee.

18-1:20†††† Then Iob arose, and rent his mantle, and shaued his head, and fell downe vpon the ground and worshipped,

18-1:21†††† And said, Naked came I out of my mothers wombe, and naked shall I returne thither: the Lord gaue, and the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the Name of the Lord.

18-1:22†††† In all this Iob sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

18-2:3††††† And the Lord said vnto Satan, Hast thou considered my seruant Iob, that there is none like him in the earth; a perfect and an vpright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth euill? and still hee holdeth fast his integritie, although thou moouedst mee against him, to destroy him without cause.

18-2:4††††† And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skinne for skinne, yea all that a man hath, wil he giue for his life.

18-2:5††††† But put foorth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.

18-2:6††††† And the Lord said vnto Satan, Behold, hee is in thine hand, but saue his life.

18-2:7††††† So went Satan foorth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Iob with sore biles, from the sole of his foote vnto his crowne.

18-2:8††††† And hee tooke him a potsheard to scrape himselfe withall; and hee sate downe among the ashes.

18-2:9††††† Then saide his wife vnto him, Doest thou still reteine thine integritie? Curse God, and die.

18-2:10†††† But he said vnto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh; what? shall wee receiue good at the hand of God, and shall wee not receiue euill? In all this did not Iob sinne with his lippes.

18-2:11†††† Now when Iobs three friends heard of all this euill, that was come vpon him, they came euery one from his owne place: Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite; for they had made an appointment together to come to mourne with him, and to comfort him.

18-2:12†††† And when they lift vp their eyes afarre off, and knew him not, they lifted vp their voice, and wept; and they rent euery one his mantle, and sprinckled dust vpon their heades toward heauen.

18-2:13†††† So they sate downe with him vpon the ground seuen dayes, and seuen nights, and none spake a word vnto him; for they saw that his griefe was very great.

18-3:3††††† Let the day perish, wherein I was borne, and the night in which it was said, There is a man-childe conceiued.

18-3:4††††† Let that day bee darkenesse, let not God regard it from aboue, neither let the light shine vpon it.

18-3:5††††† Let darkenes and the shadowe of death staine it, let a cloud dwell vpon it, let the blacknes of the day terrifie it.

18-3:6††††† As for that night, let darkenesse seaze vpon it, let it not be ioyned vnto the dayes of the yeere, let it not come into the number of the moneths.

18-3:7††††† Loe, let that night be solitarie, let no ioyfull voice come therein.

18-3:8††††† Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise vp their mourning.

18-3:9††††† Let the starres of the twilight thereof be darke, let it looke for light, but haue none, neither let it see the dawning of the day:

18-3:10†††† Because it shut not vp the doores of my mothers wombe, nor hid sorrowe from mine eyes.

18-3:11†††† Why died I not from the wombe? why did I not giue vp the ghost when I came out of the bellie?

18-3:12†††† Why did the knees preuent mee? or why the breasts, that I should sucke?

18-3:13†††† For now should I haue lien still and beene quiet, I should haue slept; then had I bene at rest,

18-3:14†††† With Kings and counsellers of the earth, which built desolate places for themselues,

18-3:15†††† Or with Princes that had golde, who filled their houses with siluer:

18-3:16†††† Or as an hidden vntimely birth, I had not bene; as infants which neuer saw light.

18-3:17†††† There the wicked cease from troubling: and there the wearie be at rest.

18-3:18†††† There the prisoners rest together, they heare not the voice of the oppressour.

18-3:19†††† The small and great are there, and the seruant is free from his master.

18-3:20†††† Wherefore is light giuen to him that is in misery, and life vnto the bitter in soule?

18-3:21†††† Which long for death, but it commeth not, and dig for it more then for hid treasures:

18-3:22†††† Which reioice exceedingly, and are glad when they can finde the graue?

18-3:23†††† Why is light giuen to a man, whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?

18-3:24†††† For my sighing commeth before I eate, and my roarings are powred out like the waters.

18-3:25†††† For the thing which I greatly feared is come vpon me, and that which I was afraid of, is come vnto me.

18-3:26†††† I was not in safetie, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet: yet trouble came.

18-4:16†††† It stood still, but I could not discerne the forme thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voyce, saying,

18-4:17†††† Shall mortall man be more iust then God? shall a man bee more pure then his maker?

18-4:18†††† Behold, hee put no trust in his seruants; and his Angels hee charged with folly:

18-4:19†††† Howe much lesse on them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth.

18-4:20†††† They are destroyed from morning to euening: they perish for euer, without any regarding it.

18-4:21†††† Doeth not their excellencie which is in them, goe away? they die, euen without wisedome.

18-9:11†††† Loe, hee goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth on also, but I perceiue him not.

18-9:12†††† Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say vnto him, What doest thou?

18-9:13†††† If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers doe stoupe vnder him.

18-9:14†††† How much lesse shall I answere him, and choose out my words to reason with him?

18-9:15†††† Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answere, but I would make supplication to my Iudge.

18-9:16†††† If I had called, and had answered me, yet would I not beleeue that he had hearkened vnto my voice:

18-9:17†††† For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.

18-9:18†††† Hee will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitternesse.

18-9:19†††† If I speake of strength, loe, hee is strong: and if of iudgement, who shall set me a time to pleade?

18-9:20†††† If I iustifie my selfe, mine owne mouth shall condemne me: If I say, I am perfect, it shall also prooue me peruerse.

18-9:21†††† Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soule: I would despise my life.

18-9:22†††† This is one thing, therefore I said it; he destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.

18-9:25†††† Now my dayes are swifter then a Poste: they flee away, they see no good.

18-9:26†††† They are passed away as the ships: as the Eagle that hasteth to the pray.

18-9:27†††† If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leaue off my heauinesse, and comfort my selfe.

18-9:28†††† I am afraid of all my sorrowes, I know that thou wilt not holde me innocent.

18-9:29†††† If I be wicked, why then labour I in vaine?

18-9:30†††† If I wash my selfe with snow water, and make my handes neuer so cleane:

18-9:31†††† Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine owne clothes shall abhorre me.

18-9:32†††† For he is not a man as I am, that I should answere him, and we should come together in iudgement.

18-9:33†††† Neither is there any dayes-man betwixt vs, that might lay his hand vpon vs both.

18-9:34†††† Let him take his rodde away from me, & let not his feare terrifie me:

18-9:35†††† Then would I speake, and not feare him; but it is not so with me.

18-10:19††† I should haue bene as though I had not bene, I should haue bene caried from the wombe to the graue.

18-10:20††† Are not my dayes few? cease then, and let me alone that I may take comfort a litle,

18-10:21††† Before I goe whence I shall not returne, euen to the land of darknes and the shadow of death,

18-10:22††† A land of darknes, as darknes it selfe, and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkenes.
