THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

27:13This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of 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 not weep.

27:16Though he heap up silver as the dust, 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 a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh.

27:19The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.

27:20Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night.

27:21The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.

27:22For God shall cast upon 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.

15:20The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.

15:21A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.

15:22He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword.

15:23He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.

15:24Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.

15:25For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty.

15:26He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers:

15:27Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks.

15:28And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps.

15:29He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth.

15:30He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.

15:31Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

15:32It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green.

15:33He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive.

15:34For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.

15:35They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit.

18:5Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

18:6The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.

18:7The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.

18:8For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.

18:9The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.

18:10The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.

18:11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.

18:12His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.

18:13It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.

18:14His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.

18:15It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

18:16His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.

18:17His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.

18:18He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.

18:19He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.

18:20They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.

18:21Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.

20:5That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

20:6Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;

20:7Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?

20:8He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.

20:9The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.

20:10His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.

20:11His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.

20:12Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue;

20:13Though he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:

20:14Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him.

20:15He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.

20:16He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper's tongue shall slay him.

20:17He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter.

20:18That which he laboured for shall he restore, and shall not swallow it down: according to his substance shall the restitution be, and he shall not rejoice therein.

20:19Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not;

20:20Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.

20:21There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods.

20:22In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits: every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.

20:23When he is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain it upon him while he is eating.

20:24He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through.

20:25It is drawn, and cometh out of the body; yea, the glittering sword cometh out of his gall: terrors are upon him.

20:26All darkness shall be hid in his secret places: a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.

20:27The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him.

20:28The increase of his house shall depart, and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath.

20:29This is the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed unto him by God.

21:7Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power?

21:8Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.

21:9Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them.

21:10Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf.

21:11They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance.

21:12They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ.

21:13They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.

21:14Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.

21:15What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?

21:16Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

21:17How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.

21:18They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.

21:19God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it.

21:20His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty.

21:21For what pleasure hath he in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off in the midst?

21:22Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.

21:23One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet.

21:24His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow.

21:25And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.

21:26They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them.

21:27Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me.

21:28For ye say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?

21:29Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,

21:30That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

21:31Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he hath done?

21:32Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.

21:33The clods of the valley shall be sweet unto him, and every man shall draw after him, as there are innumerable before him.

24:2Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.

24:3They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge.

24:4They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.

24:5Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.

24:6They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.

24:7They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.

24:8They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.

24:9They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.

24:10They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;

24:11Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst.

24:12Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them.

24:13They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.

24:14The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.

24:15The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face.

24:16In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.

24:17For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.

24:18He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.

24:19Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned.

24:20The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.

24:21He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.

24:22He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life.

24:23Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways.

24:24They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

5:25Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

Ezekiel (Author Ezekiel)

11:10Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

12:19And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith the Lord GOD of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.

12:20And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Zechariah (Author Zechariah)

14:17And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

14:18And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

14:19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
