Job 15


1
And Eliphaz the Temanite made answer and said,
2
Will a wise man make answer with knowledge of no value, or will he give birth to the east wind?
3
Will he make arguments with words in which is no profit, and with sayings which have no value?
4
Truly, you make the fear of God without effect, so that the time of quiet worship before God is made less by your outcry.
5
For your mouth is guided by your sin, and you have taken the tongue of the false for yourself.
6
It is by your mouth, even yours, that you are judged to be in the wrong, and not by me and your lips give witness against you.
7
Were you the first man to come into the world? or did you come into being before the hills?
8
Were you present at the secret meeting of God? and have you taken all wisdom for yourself?
9
What knowledge have you which we have not? is there anything in your mind which is not in ours?
10
With us are men who are grey-haired and full of years, much older than your father.
11
Are the comforts of God not enough for you, and the gentle word which was said to you?
12
Why is your heart uncontrolled, and why are your eyes lifted up
13
So that you are turning your spirit against God, and letting such words go out of your mouth?
14
What is man, that he may be clean? and how may the son of woman be upright?
15
Truly, he puts no faith in his holy ones, and the heavens are not clean in his eyes
16
How much less one who is disgusting and unclean, a man who takes in evil like water!
17
Take note and give ear to my words and I will say what I have seen:
18
(The things which wise men have got from their fathers, and have not kept secret from us
19
For only to them was the land given, and no strange people were among them:)
20
The evil man is in pain all his days, and the number of the years stored up for the cruel is small.
21
A sound of fear is in his ears in time of peace destruction will come on him:
22
He has no hope of coming safe out of the dark, and his fate will be the sword
23
He is wandering about in search of bread, saying, Where is it? and he is certain that the day of trouble is ready for him:
24
He is greatly in fear of the dark day, trouble and pain overcome him:
25
Because his hand is stretched out against God, and his heart is lifted up against the Ruler of all,
26
Running against him like a man of war, covered by his thick breastplate even like a king ready for the fight,
27
Because his face is covered with fat, and his body has become thick
28
And he has made his resting-place in the towns which have been pulled down, in houses where no man had a right to be, whose fate was to become masses of broken walls.
29
He does not get wealth for himself, and is unable to keep what he has got the heads of his grain are not bent down to the earth.
30
He does not come out of the dark his branches are burned by the flame, and the wind takes away his bud.
31
Let him not put his hope in what is false, falling into error: for he will get deceit as his reward.
32
His branch is cut off before its time, and his leaf is no longer green.
33
He is like a vine whose grapes do not come to full growth, or an olive-tree dropping its flowers.
34
For the band of the evil-doers gives no fruit, and the tents of those who give wrong decisions for reward are burned with fire.
35
Evil has made them with child, and they give birth to trouble and the fruit of their body is shame for themselves.

Job 16


1
And Job made answer and said,
2
Such things have frequently come to my ears: you are comforters who only give trouble.
3
May words which are like the wind be stopped? or what is troubling you to make answer to them?
4
It would not be hard for me to say such things if your souls were in my soul's place joining words together against you, and shaking my head at you:
5
I might give you strength with my mouth, and not keep back the comfort of my lips.
6
If I say what is in my mind, my pain becomes no less: and if I keep quiet, how much of it goes from me?
7
But now he has overcome me with weariness and fear, and I am in the grip of all my trouble.
8
It has come up as a witness against me, and the wasting of my flesh makes answer to my face.
9
I am broken by his wrath, and his hate has gone after me he has made his teeth sharp against me: my haters are looking on me with cruel eyes
10
Their mouths are open wide against me the blows of his bitter words are falling on my face all of them come together in a mass against me.
11
God gives me over to the power of sinners, sending me violently into the hands of evil-doers.
12
I was in comfort, but I have been broken up by his hands he has taken me by the neck, shaking me to bits he has put me up as a mark for his arrows.
13
His bowmen come round about me their arrows go through my body without mercy my life is drained out on the earth.
14
I am broken with wound after wound he comes rushing on me like a man of war.
15
I have made haircloth the clothing of my skin, and my horn is rolled in the dust.
16
My face is red with weeping, and my eyes are becoming dark
17
Though my hands have done no violent acts, and my prayer is clean.
18
O earth, let not my blood be covered, and let my cry have no resting-place!
19
Even now my witness is in heaven, and the supporter of my cause is on high.
20
My friends make sport of me to God my eyes are weeping,
21
So that he may give decision for a man in his cause with God, and between a son of man and his neighbour.
22
For in a short time I will take the journey from which I will not come back.

Job 17


1
My spirit is broken, my days are ended, the last resting-place is ready for me.
2
Truly, those who make sport of me are round about me, and my eyes become dark because of their bitter laughing.
3
Be pleased, now, to be responsible for me to yourself for there is no other who will put his hand in mine.
4
You have kept their hearts from wisdom: for this cause you will not give them honour.
5
As for him who is false to his friend for a reward, light will be cut off from the eyes of his children.
6
He has made me a word of shame to the peoples I have become a mark for their sport.
7
My eyes have become dark because of my pain, and all my body is wasted to a shade.
8
The upright are surprised at this, and he who has done no wrong is troubled because of the evil-doers.
9
Still the upright keeps on his way, and he who has clean hands gets new strength.
10
But come back, now, all of you, come and I will not see a wise man among you.
11
My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the desires of my heart.
12
They are changing night into day they say, The light is near the dark.
13
If I am waiting for the underworld as my house, if I have made my bed in the dark
14
If I say to the earth, You are my father and to the worm, My mother and my sister
15
Where then is my hope? and who will see my desire?
16
Will they go down with me into the underworld? Will we go down together into the dust?

Job 18


1
Then Bildad the Shuhite made answer and said,
2
How long will it be before you have done talking? Get wisdom, and then we will say what is in our minds.
3
Why do we seem as beasts in your eyes, and as completely without knowledge?
4
But come back, now, come: you who are wounding yourself in your passion, will the earth be given up because of you, or a rock be moved out of its place?
5
For the light of the sinner is put out, and the flame of his fire is not shining.
6
The light is dark in his tent, and the light shining over him is put out.
7
The steps of his strength become short, and by his design destruction overtakes him.
8
His feet take him into the net, and he goes walking into the cords.
9
His foot is taken in the net he comes into its grip.
10
The twisted cord is put secretly in the earth to take him, and the cord is placed in his way.
11
He is overcome by fears on every side, they go after him at every step.
12
His strength is made feeble for need of food, and destruction is waiting for his falling footstep.
13
His skin is wasted by disease, and his body is food for the worst of diseases.
14
He is pulled out of his tent where he was safe, and he is taken away to the king of fears.
15
In his tent will be seen that which is not his, burning stone is dropped on his house.
16
Under the earth his roots are dry, and over it his branch is cut off.
17
His memory is gone from the earth, and in the open country there is no knowledge of his name.
18
He is sent away from the light into the dark he is forced out of the world.
19
He has no offspring or family among his people, and in his living-place there is no one of his name.
20
At his fate those of the west are shocked, and those of the east are overcome with fear.
21
Truly, these are the houses of the sinner, and this is the place of him who has no knowledge of God.

1 Corinthians 1


1
Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the purpose of God, and Sosthenes the brother,
2
To the church of God which is in Corinth, to those who have been made holy in Christ Jesus, saints by the selection of God, with all those who in every place give honour to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours:
3
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4
I give praise to my God for you at all times, because of the grace of God which has been given to you in Christ Jesus
5
So that in him you have wealth in all things, in word and in knowledge of every sort
6
Even as the witness of the Christ has been made certain among you:
7
So that having every grace you are living in the hope of the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ
8
Who will give you strength to the end, to be free from all sin in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9
God is true, through whom you have been given a part with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
10
Now I make request to you, my brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you will all say the same thing, and that there may be no divisions among you, so that you may be in complete agreement, in the same mind and in the same opinion.
11
Because it has come to my knowledge, through those of the house of Chloe, that there are divisions among you, my brothers.
12
That is, that some of you say, I am of Paul some say, I am of Apollos some say, I am of Cephas and some say, I am Christ's.
13
Is there a division in Christ? was Paul nailed to the cross for you? or were you given baptism in the name of Paul?
14
I give praise to God that not one of you had baptism from me, but Crispus and Gaius
15
So that no one may be able to say that you had baptism in my name.
16
And I gave baptism to the house of Stephanas but I am not certain that any others had baptism from me.
17
For Christ sent me, not to give baptism, but to be a preacher of the good news: not with wise words, for fear that the cross of Christ might be made of no value.
18
For the word of the cross seems foolish to those who are on the way to destruction but to us who are on the way to salvation it is the power of God.
19
As it says in the holy Writings, I will put an end to the wisdom of the wise, and will put on one side the designs of those who have knowledge.
20
Where is the wise? where is he who has knowledge of the law? where is the man of this world who has a love of discussion? has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21
For because, by the purpose of God, the world, with all its wisdom, had not the knowledge of God, it was God's pleasure, by so foolish a thing as preaching, to give salvation to those who had faith in him.
22
Seeing that the Jews make request for signs, and the Greeks are looking for knowledge:
23
But we give the good news of Christ on the cross, a hard thing to the Jews, and a foolish thing to the Gentiles
24
But to those of God's selection, Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power and the wisdom of God.
25
Because what seems foolish in God is wiser than men and what seems feeble in God is stronger than men.
26
For you see God's design for you, my brothers, that he has not taken a great number of the wise after the flesh, not the strong, not the noble:
27
But God made selection of the foolish things of this world so that he might put the wise to shame and the feeble things that he might put to shame the strong
28
And the low things of the world, and the things without honour, did God make selection of, yes, even the things which are not, so that he might make as nothing the things which are:
29
So that no flesh might have glory before God.
30
But God has given you a place in Christ Jesus, through whom God has given us wisdom and righteousness and salvation, and made us holy:
31
So that, as it is said in the holy Writings, Whoever has a desire for glory, let his glory be in the Lord.
