Job 21


21:1 But Job answered and said,
21:2 Hear diligently my speech, and let this be your
 consolations.
21:3 Suffer me that I may speak; and after I have spoken, mock
 on.
21:4 As for me, [is] my complaint to man? and if [it were so],
 why should not my spirit be troubled?
21:5 Mark me, and be astonished, and lay [your] hand upon [your]
 mouth.
21:6 Even when I remember I am afraid, and trembling taketh hold
 on my flesh.
21:7 Why do the wicked live, become old, and, are mighty in
 power?
21:8 Their seed is established in their sight with them, and
 their offspring before their eyes.
21:9 Their houses [are] safe from fear, neither [is] the rod of
 God upon them.
21:10 Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth,
 and casteth not her calf.
21:11 They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their
 children dance.
21:12 They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound
 of the organ.
21:13 They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down
 to the grave.
21:14 Therefore they say to God, Depart from us; for we desire
 not the knowledge of thy ways.
21:15 What [is] the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what
 profit should we have, if we pray to him?
21:16 Lo, their good [is] not in their hand: the counsel of the
 wicked is far from me.
21:17 How oft is the candle of the wicked put out? and [how oft]
 cometh their destruction upon them? [God] distributeth sorrows
 in his anger.
21:18 They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the
 storm carrieth away.
21:19 God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth
 him, and he shall know [it].
21:20 His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of
 the wrath of the Almighty.
21:21 For what pleasure [hath] he in his house after him, when
 the number of his months is cut off in the midst?
21:22 Shall [any] teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those
 that are high.
21:23 One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and
 quiet.
21:24 His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened
 with marrow.
21:25 And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never
 eateth with pleasure.
21:26 They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall
 cover them.
21:27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices [which] ye
 wrongfully imagine against me.
21:28 For ye say, Where [is] the house of the prince? and where
 [are] the dwelling places of the wicked?
21:29 Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not
 know their tokens,
21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction?
 they will be brought forth to the day of wrath.
21:31 Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay
 him [what] he hath done?
21:32 Yet he shall be brought to the grave, and shall remain in
 the tomb.
21:33 The clods of the valley will be sweet to him, and every
 man will draw after him, as [there are] innumerable before him.
21:34 How then comfort ye me in vain, seeing in your answers
 there remaineth falsehood?
