THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

8:1Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

8:2How long wilt thou speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind?

8:3Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

8:4If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;

8:5If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;

8:6If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.

8:7Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.

8:8For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:

8:9(For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)

8:10Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?

8:11Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?

8:12Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.

8:13So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:

8:14Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.

8:15He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.

8:16He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.

8:17His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones.

8:18If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee.

8:19Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.

8:20Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:

8:21Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.

8:22They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

49:1Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:

49:2Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

49:3My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

49:4I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.

49:5Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

49:6They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

49:7None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

49:8(For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

49:9That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

49:10For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

49:11Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.

49:12Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

49:13This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

49:14Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

49:15But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

49:16Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

49:17For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

49:18Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

49:19He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

49:20Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
