1 H3772 I made H1285 a covenant H5869 with mine eyes; H995 How then should I look H1330 upon a virgin?
2 H2506 For what is the portion H433 from God H4605 above, H5159 And the heritage H7706 from the Almighty H4791 on high?
3 H343 Is it not calamity H5767 to the unrighteous, H5235 And disaster H6466 to the workers H205 of iniquity?
6 H8254 (Let me be weighed H6664 in an even H3976 balance, H433 That God H3045 may know H8538 mine integrity);
7 H838 If my step H5186 hath turned out H1870 of the way, H3820 And my heart H1980 walked H310 after H5869 mine eyes, H3971 And if any spot H1692 hath cleaved H3709 to my hands:
8 H2232 Then let me sow, H312 and let another H398 eat; H6631 Yea, let the produce H8327 of my field be rooted out.
9 H3820 If my heart H6601 hath been enticed H802 unto a woman, H693 And I have laid wait H7453 at my neighbor's H6607 door;
10 H802 Then let my wife H2912 grind H312 unto another, H312 And let others H3766 bow down upon her.
11 H2154 For that were a heinous crime; H5771 Yea, it were an iniquity H6414 to be punished by the judges:
12 H784 For it is a fire H398 that consumeth H11 unto Destruction, H8327 And would root out H8393 all mine increase.
13 H3988 If I have despised H4941 the cause H5650 of my man-servant H519 or of my maid-servant, H7379 When they contended with me;
14 H6213 What then shall I do H410 when God H6965 riseth up? H6485 And when he visiteth, H7725 what shall I answer him?
15 H6213 Did not he that made H990 me in the womb H6213 make H259 him? And did not one H3559 fashion H7358 us in the womb?
16 H4513 If I have withheld H1800 the poor H2656 from their desire, H5869 Or have caused the eyes H490 of the widow H3615 to fail,
18 H5271 (Nay, from my youth H1431 he grew up H1 with me as with a father, H5148 And her have I guided H517 from my mother's H990 womb);
19 H7200 If I have seen H6 any perish H3830 for want of clothing, H34 Or that the needy H3682 had no covering;
20 H2504 If his loins H1288 have not blessed H2552 me, And if he hath not been warmed H1488 with the fleece H3532 of my sheep;
21 H5130 If I have lifted up H3027 my hand H3490 against the fatherless, H7200 Because I saw H5833 my help H8179 in the gate:
22 H5307 Then let my shoulder fall H7929 from the shoulder-blade, H248 And mine arm H7665 be broken H7070 from the bone.
23 H343 For calamity H410 from God H6343 is a terror H7613 to me, And by reason of his majesty H3201 I can do nothing.
24 H7760 If I have made H2091 gold H3689 my hope, H559 And have said H3800 to the fine gold, H4009 Thou art my confidence;
25 H8055 If I have rejoiced H2428 because my wealth H7227 was great, H3027 And because my hand H4672 had gotten H3524 much;
26 H7200 If I have beheld H216 the sun H1984 when it shined, H3394 Or the moon H1980 walking H3368 in brightness,
27 H3820 And my heart H5643 hath been secretly H6601 enticed, H6310 And my mouth H5401 hath kissed H3027 my hand:
28 H5771 This also were an iniquity H6416 to be punished by the judges; H3584 For I should have denied H410 the God H4605 that is above.
29 H8055 If I have rejoiced H6365 at the destruction H8130 of him that hated H5782 me, Or lifted up H7451 myself when evil H4672 found him;
30 H5414 (Yea, I have not suffered H2441 my mouth H2398 to sin H7592 By asking H5315 his life H423 with a curse);
31 H4962 If the men H168 of my tent H559 have not said, H5414 Who can find H7646 one that hath not been filled H1320 with his meat?
32 H1616 (The sojourner H3885 hath not lodged H2351 in the street; H6605 But I have opened H1817 my doors H734 to the traveller);
33 H121 If like Adam H3680 I have covered H6588 my transgressions, H2934 By hiding H5771 mine iniquity H2243 in my bosom,
34 H6206 Because I feared H7227 the great H1995 multitude, H937 And the contempt H4940 of families H2865 terrified H1826 me, So that I kept silence, H3318 and went not out H6607 of the door—
35 H5414 Oh that H8085 I had one to hear H8420 me! (Lo, here is my signature, H7706 let the Almighty H6030 answer H5612 me); And that I had the indictment H376 which mine adversary H3789 hath written!
36 H5375 Surely I would carry H7926 it upon my shoulder; H6029 I would bind H5850 it unto me as a crown:
37 H5046 I would declare H4557 unto him the number H6806 of my steps; H5057 As a prince H7126 would I go near unto him.
38 H127 If my land H2199 crieth H3162 out against me, And H8525 the furrows H1058 thereof weep together;
39 H398 If I have eaten H3581 the fruits H3701 thereof without money, H1167 Or have caused the owners H5301 thereof to lose H5315 their life:
