27 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,

aAs God liveth, bwho hath taken away my judgment;

And the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;

cAll the while my breath is in me,

And ||the spirit of God is in my nostrils;

My lips shall not speak dwickedness,

Nor my tongue utter ddeceit.

eGod forbid that I should justify you:

Till I die I will not remove mine fintegrity from me.

My righteousness I ghhold fast, and will not hlet it go:

iMy heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

Let mine enemy be as the wicked,

And khe that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.

lFor what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he mhath gained,

When God taketh away his soul?

nWill God hear his cry

When trouble cometh upon him?

10  oWill 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 pwith the Almighty will I not conceal.

12  Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it;

Why then are ye thus altogether vain?

13  qThis is the portion of a wicked man with God,

And the heritage of roppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty.

14  sIf his children be multiplied, it is for tthe sword:

And his uoffspring tshall not be satisfied with bread.

15  Those that remain of him tshall be buried in death:

And whis widows shall not weep.

16  Though he xheap up silver as the dust,

And prepare raiment as the clay;

17  He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on,

And ythe innocent shall divide the silver.

18  He buildeth zhis house as a amoth,

And as a bbooth that cthe keeper maketh.

19  The rich man dshall lie down, but he shall not be egathered:

He openeth his eyes, and fhe is not.

20  gTerrors take hold on him as hwaters,

A itempest stealeth him away djin the night.

21  The east wind carrieth him away, and khe departeth:

And las a storm hurleth him mout of his place.

22  For God shall ncast upon him, and not spare:

He would fain flee out of his hand.

23  Men shall oclap their hands at him,

And shall phiss him mout of his place.
