Job 25


1
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
2
Dominion and fear [are] with him, he maketh peace in his high places.
3
Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?
4
How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean [that is] born of a woman?
5
Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.
6
How much less man, [that is] a worm? and the son of man, [which is] a worm?

Job 26


1
But Job answered and said,
2
How hast thou helped [him that is] without power? [how] savest thou the arm [that hath] no strength?
3
How hast thou counselled [him that hath] no wisdom? and [how] hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?
4
To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?
5
Dead [things] are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.
6
Hell [is] naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
7
He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, [and] hangeth the earth upon nothing.
8
He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds and the cloud is not rent under them.
9
He holdeth back the face of his throne, [and] spreadeth his cloud upon it.
10
He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
11
The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.
12
He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.
13
By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
14
Lo, these [are] parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

Job 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


1
Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold [where] they fine [it].
2
Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass [is] molten [out of] the stone.
3
He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.
4
The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant [even the waters] forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men.
5
[As for] the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.
6
The stones of it [are] the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.
7
[There is] a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen:
8
The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.
9
He putteth forth his hand upon the rock he overturneth the mountains by the roots.
10
He cutteth out rivers among the rocks and his eye seeth every precious thing.
11
He bindeth the floods from overflowing and [the thing that is] hid bringeth he forth to light.
12
But where shall wisdom be found? and where [is] the place of understanding?
13
Man knoweth not the price thereof neither is it found in the land of the living.
14
The depth saith, It [is] not in me: and the sea saith, [It is] not with me.
15
It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed [for] the price thereof.
16
It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.
17
The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it [shall not be for] jewels of fine gold.
18
No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom [is] above rubies.
19
The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
20
Whence then cometh wisdom? and where [is] the place of understanding?
21
Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
22
Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
23
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
24
For he looketh to the ends of the earth, [and] seeth under the whole heaven
25
To make the weight for the winds and he weigheth the waters by measure.
26
When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
27
Then did he see it, and declare it he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
28
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that [is] wisdom and to depart from evil [is] understanding.

1 Corinthians 4


1
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
2
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
3
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
4
For I know nothing by myself yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
5
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
6
And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and [to] Apollos for your sakes that ye might learn in us not to think [of men] above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
7
For who maketh thee to differ [from another]? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive [it], why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received [it]?
8
Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.
9
For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.
10
We [are] fools for Christ's sake, but ye [are] wise in Christ we [are] weak, but ye [are] strong ye [are] honourable, but we [are] despised.
11
Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace
12
And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless being persecuted, we suffer it:
13
Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, [and are] the offscouring of all things unto this day.
14
I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn [you].
15
For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet [have ye] not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
16
Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
17
For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.
18
Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.
19
But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.
20
For the kingdom of God [is] not in word, but in power.
21
What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and [in] the spirit of meekness?
