Job 24

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

24:1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?

24:2 [Some] remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed [thereof].

24:3 They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge.

24:4 They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.

24:5 Behold, [as] wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness [yieldeth] food for them [and] for [their] children.

24:6 They reap [every one] his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.

24:7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that [they have] no covering in the cold.

24:8 They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.

24:9 They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.

24:10 They cause [him] to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf [from] the hungry;

24:11 [Which] make oil within their walls, [and] tread [their] winepresses, and suffer thirst.

24:12 Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly [to them].

24:13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.

24:14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.

24:15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth [his] face.

24:16 In the dark they dig through houses, [which] they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.

24:17 For the morning [is] to them even as the shadow of death: if [one] know [them, they are in] the terrors of the shadow of death.

24:18 He [is] swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.

24:19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters: [so doth] the grave [those which] have sinned.

24:20 The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.

24:21 He evil entreateth the barren [that] beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.

24:22 He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no [man] is sure of life.

24:23 [Though] it be given him [to be] in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes [are] upon their ways.

24:24 They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all [other], and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.

24:25 And if [it be] not [so] now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth?
