The Books of Poetry
I Corinthians 11-12
And Job continued his parable and said,
[As] łGod liveth, who hath taken away my right, and the Almighty, who hath embittered my soul,
All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of +God is in my nostrils,
My lips shall not speak unrighteousness, nor my tongue utter deceit!
Be it far from me that I should justify you; till I die I will not remove my blamelessness from me.
My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart reproacheth [me] not one of my days.
Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.
For what is the hope of the ungodly, when [God] cutteth him off, when +God taketh away his soul?
Will łGod hear his cry when distress cometh upon him?
Doth he delight himself in the Almighty? will he at all times call upon +God?
I will teach you concerning the hand of łGod; what is with the Almighty will I not conceal.
Behold, ye yourselves have all seen [it]; and why are ye thus altogether vain?
This is the portion of the wicked man with łGod, and the heritage of the violent, which they receive from the Almighty: --
If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword, and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread;
Those that remain of him shall be buried by death, and his widows shall not weep.
Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare clothing as the clay;
He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on; and the innocent shall divide the silver.
He buildeth his house as the moth, and as a booth that a keeper maketh.
He lieth down rich, but will do so no more; he openeth his eyes, and he is not.
Terrors overtake him like waters; a whirlwind stealeth him away in the night.
The east wind carrieth him away and he is gone; and as a storm it hurleth him out of his place.
And [God] shall cast upon him and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.
[Men] shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.
Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold which they refine;
Iron is taken out of the dust, and copper is molten out of the stone.
[Man] putteth an end to the darkness, and exploreth to the utmost limit, the stones of darkness and of the shadow of death.
He openeth a shaft far from the inhabitants [of the earth]: forgotten of the foot, they hang suspended; away below men they hover.
As for the earth, out of it cometh bread, and underneath it is turned up as by fire;
The stones of it are the place of sapphires, and it hath dust of gold.
It is a path no bird of prey knoweth, and the vulture's eye hath not seen it;
The proud beasts have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed over it.
[Man] putteth forth his hand upon the flinty rock, he overturneth the mountains by the root.
He cutteth out channels in the rocks, and his eye seeth every precious thing.
He bindeth the streams that they drip not, and what is hidden he bringeth forth to light.
But wisdom, where shall it be found? and where is the place of understanding?
Man knoweth not the value thereof; and it is not found in the land of the living.
The deep saith, It is not in me; and the sea saith, It is not with me.
Choice gold cannot be given for it, nor silver be weighed for its price.
It is not set in the balance with gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, and the sapphire.
Gold and glass cannot be compared to it, nor vessels of fine gold be its exchange.
Corals and crystal are no more remembered; yea, the acquisition of wisdom is above rubies.
The topaz of Ethiopia shall not be compared to it, neither shall it be set in the balance with pure gold.
Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
For it is hidden from the eyes of all living, and concealed from the fowl of the heavens.
Destruction and death say, We have heard its report with our ears.
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth its place:
For he looketh to the ends of the earth, he seeth under the whole heaven.
In making a weight for the wind, and meting out the waters by measure,
In appointing a statute for the rain, and a way for the thunder's flash:
Then did he see it, and declare it; he established it, yea, and searched it out;
And unto man he said, Lo, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
