   1: And Job answereth and saith: --
   2: Hear ye diligently my word, And this is your consolation.
   3: Bear with me, and I speak, And after my speaking -- ye may deride.
   4: I -- to man [is] my complaint? and if [so], wherefore May not my temper become short?
   5: Turn unto me, and be astonished, And put hand to mouth.
   6: Yea, if I have remembered, then I have been troubled. And my flesh hath taken fright.
   7: Wherefore do the wicked live? They have become old, Yea, they have been mighty in wealth.
   8: Their seed is established, Before their face with them, And their offspring before their eyes.
   9: Their houses [are] peace without fear, Nor [is] a rod of God upon them.
   10: His bullock hath eaten corn, and doth not loath. His cow bringeth forth safely, And doth not miscarry.
   11: They send forth as a flock their sucklings, And their children skip,
   12: They lift [themselves] up at timbrel and harp, And rejoice at the sound of an organ.
   13: They wear out in good their days, And in a moment [to] Sheol go down.
   14: And they say to God, 'Turn aside from us, And the knowledge of Thy ways We have not desired.
   15: What [is] the Mighty One that we serve Him? And what do we profit when we meet with Him?'
   16: Lo, not in their hand [is] their good, (The counsel of the wicked Hath been far from me.)
   17: How oft is the lamp of the wicked extinguished, And come on them doth their calamity? Pangs He apportioneth in His anger.
   18: They are as straw before wind, And as chaff a hurricane hath stolen away,
   19: God layeth up for his sons his sorrow, He giveth recompense unto him -- and he knoweth.
   20: His own eyes see his destruction, And of the wrath of the Mighty he drinketh.
   21: For what [is] his delight in his house after him, And the number of his months cut off?
   22: To God doth [one] teach knowledge, And He the high doth judge?
   23: This [one] dieth in his perfect strength, Wholly at ease and quiet.
   24: His breasts have been full of milk, And marrow his bones doth moisten.
   25: And this [one] dieth with a bitter soul, And have not eaten with gladness.
   26: Together -- on the dust they lie down, And the worm doth cover them over.
   27: Lo, I have known your thoughts, And the devices against me ye do wrongfully.
   28: For ye say, 'Where [is] the house of the noble? And where the tent -- The tabernacles of the wicked?'
   29: Have ye not asked those passing by the way? And their signs do ye not know?
   30: That to a day of calamity is the wicked spared. To a day of wrath they are brought.
   31: Who doth declare to his face his way? And [for] that which he hath done, Who doth give recompence to him?
   32: And he -- to the graves he is brought. And over the heap a watch is kept.
   33: Sweet to him have been the clods of the valley, And after him every man he draweth, And before him there is no numbering.
   34: And how do ye comfort me [with] vanity, And in your answers hath been left trespass?
