Geneva Study Bible
   1: And Job answered and said,
   2: Hear attentively my speech, and let this replace your consolations.
   3: Suffer me and I will speak; and after I have spoken, mock on!
   4: As for me, is my complaint to a man? or wherefore should not my spirit be impatient?
   5: Mark me, and be astonished, and lay the hand upon the mouth.
   6: Even when I think [thereon], I am affrighted, and trembling taketh hold of my flesh.
   7: Wherefore do the wicked live, grow old, yea, become mighty in power?
   8: Their seed is established with them in their sight, and their offspring before their eyes.
   9: Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them.
   10: Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf.
   11: They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance.
   12: They shout to the tambour and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the pipe.
   13: They spend their days in prosperity, and in a moment go down to Sheol.
   14: And they say unto God, Depart from us, for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways!
   15: What is the Almighty that we should serve him? and what are we profited if we pray unto him?
   16: Behold, their prosperity is not in their hand. The counsel of the wicked be far from me!
   17: How often is the lamp of the wicked put out, and cometh their calamity upon them? Doth he distribute sorrows [to them] in his anger?
   18: Do they become as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away?
   19: God layeth up [the punishment of] his iniquity for his children; he rewardeth him, and he shall know [it]:
   20: His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the fury of the Almighty.
   21: For what pleasure should he have in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off?
   22: Can any teach God knowledge? And he it is that judgeth those that are high.
   23: One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet;
   24: His sides are full of fat, and the marrow of his bones is moistened;
   25: And another dieth in bitterness of soul, and hath not tasted good:
   26: Together they lie down in the dust, and the worms cover them.
   27: Lo, I know your thoughts, and the devices ye wrongfully imagine against me.
   28: For ye say, Where is the house of the noble? and where the tent of the dwellings of the wicked?
   29: Have ye not asked the wayfarers? and do ye not regard their tokens:
   30: That the wicked is reserved for the day of calamity? They are led forth to the day of wrath.
   31: Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he hath done?
   32: Yet is he carried to the graves, and watch is kept over the tomb.
   33: The clods of the valley are sweet unto him; and every man followeth suit after him, as there were innumerable before him.
   34: How then comfort ye me in vain? Your answers remain perfidious.
