THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

29:11When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:

29:12Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

29:13The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.

29:14I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

29:15I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

29:16I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

31:16If I have withheld the poor from their desire, or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail;

31:17Or have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof;

31:18(For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I have guided her from my mother's womb;)

31:19If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor without covering;

31:20If his loins have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;

31:21If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my help in the gate:

31:38If my land cry against me, or that the furrows likewise thereof complain;

31:39If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life:

31:40Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and cockle instead of barley. The words of Job are ended.
