Job Chapter 13 (Index)

001  Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it.

002  What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you.

003  Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.

004  But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value.

005  O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.

006  Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.

007  Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?

008  Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?

009  Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him?

010  He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons.

011  Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall upon you?

012  Your remembrances are like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.

013  Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will.

014  Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?

015  Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.

016  He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

017  Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.

018  Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.

019  Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.

020  Only do not two things unto me: then will I not hide myself from thee.

021  Withdraw thine hand far from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid.

022  Then call thou, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer thou me.

023  How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.

024  Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy?

025  Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?

026  For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.

027  Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.

028  And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.
