Chapter 27

1

 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said, 

2

 [As] God liveth, [who] hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, [who] hath vexed my soul; 

3

 All the while my breath [is] in me, and the spirit of God [is] in my nostrils; 

4

 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. 

5

 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me. 

6

 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach [me] so long as I live. 

7

 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous. 

8

 For what [is] the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? 

9

 Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him? 

10

 Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God? 

11

 I will teach you by the hand of God: [that] which [is] with the Almighty will I not conceal. 

12

 Behold, all ye yourselves have seen [it]; why then are ye thus altogether vain? 

13

 This [is] the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, [which] they shall receive of the Almighty. 

14

 If his children be multiplied, [it is] for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread. 

15

 Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep. 

16

 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay; 

17

 He may prepare [it], but the just shall put [it] on, and the innocent shall divide the silver. 

18

 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth [that] the keeper maketh. 

19

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

20

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

21

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

22

 For [God] shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand. 

23

 [Men] shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place. 

Job 28
