King James Bible : Job : Chapter 27


27:1
Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,
27:2
As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgement; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;
27:3
All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;
27:4
My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.
27:5
God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.
27:6
My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.
27:7
Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.
27:8
For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?
27:9
Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?
27:10
Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?
27:11
I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.
27:12
Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye thus altogether vain?
27:13
This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty.
27:14
If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
27:15
Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep.
27:16
Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;
27:17
He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.
27:18
He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth that the keeper maketh.
27:19
The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.
27:20
Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night.
27:21
The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.
27:22
For God shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.
27:23
Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.
