Geneva Study Bible
   1: A covenant I made for mine eyes, And what -- do I attend to a virgin?
   2: And what [is] the portion of God from above? And the inheritance of the Mighty from the heights?
   3: Is not calamity to the perverse? And strangeness to workers of iniquity?
   4: Doth not He see my ways, And all my steps number?
   5: If I have walked with vanity, And my foot doth hasten to deceit,
   6: He doth weigh me in righteous balances, And God doth know my integrity.
   7: If my step doth turn aside from the way, And after mine eyes hath my heart gone, And to my hands cleaved hath blemish,
   8: Let me sow -- and another eat, And my products let be rooted out.
   9: If my heart hath been enticed by woman, And by the opening of my neighbour I laid wait,
   10: Grind to another let my wife, And over her let others bend.
   11: For it [is] a wicked thing, and a judicial iniquity;
   12: For a fire it [is], to destruction it consumeth, And among all mine increase doth take root,
   13: If I despise the cause of my man-servant, And of my handmaid, In their contending with me,
   14: Then what do I do when God ariseth? And when He doth inspect, What do I answer Him?
   15: Did not He that made me in the womb make him? Yea, prepare us in the womb doth One.
   16: If I withhold from pleasure the poor, And the eyes of the widow do consume,
   17: And I do eat my morsel by myself, And the orphan hath not eat of it,
   18: (But from my youth He grew up with me as [with] a father, And from the belly of my mother I am led.)
   19: If I see [any] perishing without clothing, And there is no covering to the needy,
   20: If his loins have not blessed me, And from the fleece of my sheep He doth not warm himself,
   21: If I have waved at the fatherless my hand, When I see in [him] the gate of my court,
   22: My shoulder from its blade let fall, And mine arm from the bone be broken.
   23: For a dread unto me [is] calamity [from] God, And because of His excellency I am not able.
   24: If I have made gold my confidence, And to the pure gold have said, 'My trust,'
   25: If I rejoice because great [is] my wealth, And because abundance hath my hand found,
   26: If I see the light when it shineth, And the precious moon walking,
   27: And my heart is enticed in secret, And my hand doth kiss my mouth,
   28: It also [is] a judicial iniquity, For I had lied to God above.
   29: If I rejoice at the ruin of my hater, And stirred up myself when evil found him,
   30: Yea, I have not suffered my mouth to sin, To ask with an oath his life.
   31: If not -- say ye, O men of my tent, 'O that we had of his flesh, we are not satisfied.'
   32: In the street doth not lodge a stranger, My doors to the traveller I open.
   33: If I have covered as Adam my transgressions, To hide in my bosom mine iniquity,
   34: Because I fear a great multitude, And the contempt of families doth affright me, Then I am silent, I go not out of the opening.
   35: Who giveth to me a hearing? lo, my mark. The Mighty One doth answer me, And a bill hath mine adversary written.
   36: If not -- on my shoulder I take it up, I bind it a crown on myself.
   37: The number of my steps I tell Him, As a leader I approach Him.
   38: If against me my land doth cry out, And together its furrows weep,
   39: If its strength I consumed without money, And the life of its possessors, I have caused to breathe out,
   40: Instead of wheat let a thorn go forth, And instead of barley a useless weed! The words of Job are finished.
