Job 27 (asv)
27:3(For my life is yet whole in me,
27:4Surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness,
Neither shall my tongue utter deceit.
27:5Far be it from me that I should justify you:
Till I die I will not put away mine integrity from me.
My heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.
27:7Let mine enemy be as the wicked,
And let him that riseth up against me be as the unrighteous. \\ \\
27:8For what is the hope of the godless, though he get him gain,
27:9Will God hear his cry,
When trouble cometh upon him?
27:10Will he delight himself in the Almighty,
And call upon God at all times?
That which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.
27:12Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it;
Why then are ye become altogether vain? \\ \\
And the heritage of oppressors, which they receive from the Almighty:
27:14If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword;
And his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
27:15Those that remain of him shall be buried in death,
And his widows shall make no lamentation.
And prepare raiment as the clay;
27:17He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on,
And the innocent shall divide the silver.
27:18He buildeth his house as the moth,
And as a booth which the keeper maketh.
27:19He lieth down rich, but he shall not be gathered to his fathers;
He openeth his eyes, and he is not.
27:20Terrors overtake him like waters;
A tempest stealeth him away in the night.
And it sweepeth him out of his place.
27:22For God shall hurl at him, and not spare:
He would fain flee out of his hand.
27:23Men shall clap their hands at him,
And shall hiss him out of his place.
