The Books of Poetry
I Corinthians 11-12
And Job addeth to lift up his simile, and saith: --
God liveth! He turned aside my judgment, And the Mighty -- He made my soul bitter.
For all the while my breath [is] in me, And the spirit of God in my nostrils.
My lips do not speak perverseness, And my tongue doth not utter deceit.
Pollution to me -- if I justify you, Till I expire I turn not aside mine integrity from me.
On my righteousness I have laid hold, And I do not let it go, My heart doth not reproach me while I live.
As the wicked is my enemy, And my withstander as the perverse.
For what [is] the hope of the profane, When He doth cut off? When God doth cast off his soul?
His cry doth God hear, When distress cometh on him?
On the Mighty doth he delight himself? Call God at all times?
I shew you by the hand of God, That which [is] with the Mighty I hide not.
Lo, ye -- all of you -- have seen, And why [is] this -- ye are altogether vain?
This [is] the portion of wicked man with God, And the inheritance of terrible ones From the Mighty they receive.
If his sons multiply -- for them [is] a sword. And his offspring [are] not satisfied [with] bread.
His remnant in death are buried, And his widows do not weep.
If he heap up as dust silver, And as clay prepare clothing,
He prepareth -- and the righteous putteth [it] on, And the silver the innocent doth apportion.
He hath built as a moth his house, And as a booth a watchman hath made.
Rich he lieth down, and he is not gathered, His eyes he hath opened, and he is not.
Overtake him as waters do terrors, By night stolen him away hath a whirlwind.
Take him up doth an east wind, and he goeth, And it frighteneth him from his place,
And it casteth at him, and doth not spare, From its hand he diligently fleeth.
It clappeth at him its hands, And it hisseth at him from his place.
Surely there is for silver a source, And a place for the gold they refine;
Iron from the dust is taken, And [from] the firm stone brass.
An end hath he set to darkness, And to all perfection he is searching, A stone of darkness and death-shade.
A stream hath broken out from a sojourner, Those forgotten of the foot, They were low, from man they wandered.
The earth! from it cometh forth bread, And its under-part is turned like fire.
A place of the sapphire [are] its stones, And it hath dust of gold.
A path -- not known it hath a ravenous fowl, Nor scorched it hath an eye of the kite,
Nor trodden it have the sons of pride, Not passed over it hath the fierce lion.
Against the flint he sent forth his hand, He overturned from the root mountains.
Among rocks, brooks he hath cleaved, And every precious thing hath his eye seen.
From overflowing floods he hath bound, And the hidden thing bringeth out [to] light.
And the wisdom -- whence is it found? And where [is] this, the place of understanding?
Man hath not known its arrangement, Nor is it found in the land of the living.
The deep hath said, `It [is] not in me,' And the sea hath said, `It is not with me.'
Gold is not given for it, Nor is silver weighed -- its price.
It is not valued with pure gold of Ophir, With precious onyx and sapphire,
Not equal it do gold and crystal, Nor [is] its exchange a vessel of fine gold.
Corals and pearl are not remembered, The acquisition of wisdom [is] above rubies.
Not equal it doth the topaz of Cush, With pure gold it is not valued.
And the wisdom -- whence doth it come? And where [is] this, the place of understanding?
It hath been hid from the eyes of all living. And from the fowl of the heavens It hath been hidden.
Destruction and death have said: `With our ears we have heard its fame.'
God hath understood its way, And He hath known its place.
For He to the ends of the earth doth look, Under the whole heavens He doth see,
To make for the wind a weight, And the waters He meted out in measure.
In His making for the rain a limit, And a way for the brightness of the voices,
Then He hath seen and declareth it, He hath prepared it, and also searched it out,
And He saith to man: -- `Lo, fear of the Lord, that [is] wisdom, And to turn from evil [is] understanding.'
