Job 12

12:1 And Job answered and said,
12:2 No doubt but ye [are] the people, and wisdom shall die with
12:3 But I have understanding as well as you; I [am] not
 inferior to you: yes, who knoweth not such things as these?
12:4 I am [as] one mocked by his neighbor, who calleth upon God,
 and he answereth him: the just upright [man is] derided.
12:5 He that is ready to slip with [his] feet [is as] a lamp
 despised in the thought of him that is at ease.
12:6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke
 God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth [abundantly].
12:7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the
 fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:
12:8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the
 fishes of the sea shall declare to thee.
12:9 Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath
 wrought this?
12:10 In whose hand [is] the soul of every living thing, and the
 breath of all mankind.
12:11 Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste its food?
12:12 With the ancient [is] wisdom; and in length of days
12:13 With him [is] wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and
12:14 Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he
 shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.
12:15 Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also
 he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.
12:16 With him [is] strength and wisdom: the deceived and the
 deceiver [are] his.
12:17 He leadeth counselors away spoiled, and maketh the judges
12:18 He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with
 a girdle.
12:19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the
12:20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away
 the understanding of the aged.
12:21 He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the
 strength of the mighty.
12:22 He revealeth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth to
 light the shades of death.
12:23 He increaseth nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth
 nations, and straiteneth them [again].
12:24 He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the
 earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness [where there
 is] no way.
12:25 They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them
 to stagger like [a] drunken [man].
