1 H3772 I made [H8804] H1285 a covenant H5869 with mine eyes H995 ; why then should I think [H8709] H1330 upon a maid?
2 H2506 For what portion H433 of God H4605 is there from above H5159 ? and what inheritance H7706 of the Almighty H4791 from on high?
3 H343 Is not destruction H5767 to the wicked H5235 ? and a strange H6466 punishment to the workers [H8802] H205 of iniquity?
5 H1980 If I have walked [H8804] H7723 with vanity H7272 , or if my foot H2363 hath hasted [H8799] H4820 to deceit;
6 H8254 Let me be weighed [H8799] H6664 in an even H3976 balance H433 , that God H3045 may know [H8799] H8538 mine integrity.
7 H838 If my step H5186 hath turned out [H8799] H1870 of the way H3820 , and mine heart H1980 walked [H8804] H310 after H5869 mine eyes H3971 , and if any blot H1692 hath cleaved [H8804] H3709 to mine hands;
8 H2232 Then let me sow [H8799] H312 , and let another H398 eat [H8799] H6631 ; yea, let my offspring H8327 be rooted out [H8792] .
9 H3820 If mine heart H6601 have been deceived [H8738] H802 by a woman H693 , or if I have laid wait [H8804] H7453 at my neighbour's H6607 door;
10 H802 Then let my wife H2912 grind [H8799] H312 unto another H312 , and let others H3766 bow down [H8799] upon her.
11 H2154 For this is an heinous crime H5771 ; yea, it is an iniquity H6414 to be punished by the judges.
12 H784 For it is a fire H398 that consumeth [H8799] H11 to destruction H8327 , and would root out [H8762] H8393 all mine increase.
13 H3988 If I did despise [H8799] H4941 the cause H5650 of my manservant H519 or of my maidservant H7379 , when they contended with me;
14 H6213 What then shall I do [H8799] H410 when God H6965 riseth up [H8799] H6485 ? and when he visiteth [H8799] H7725 , what shall I answer [H8686] him?
15 H6213 Did not he that made [H8802] H990 me in the womb H6213 make [H8804] H259 him? and did not one H3559 fashion [H8787] H7358 us in the womb?
16 H4513 If I have withheld [H8799] H1800 the poor H2656 from their desire H5869 , or have caused the eyes H490 of the widow H3615 to fail [H8762] ;
17 H398 Or have eaten [H8799] H6595 my morsel H3490 myself alone, and the fatherless H398 hath not eaten [H8804] thereof;
18 H5271 (For from my youth H1431 he was brought up [H8804] H1 with me, as with a father H5148 , and I have guided [H8686] H517 her from my mother's H990 womb;)
19 H7200 If I have seen [H8799] H6 any perish [H8802] H3830 for want of clothing H34 , or any poor H3682 without covering;
20 H2504 If his loins H1288 have not blessed [H8765] H2552 me, and if he were not warmed [H8691] H1488 with the fleece H3532 of my sheep;
21 H5130 If I have lifted up [H8689] H3027 my hand H3490 against the fatherless H7200 , when I saw [H8799] H5833 my help H8179 in the gate:
22 H3802 Then let mine arm H5307 fall [H8799] H7929 from my shoulder blade H248 , and mine arm H7665 be broken [H8735] H7070 from the bone.
23 H343 For destruction H410 from God H6343 was a terror H7613 to me, and by reason of his highness H3201 I could [H8799] not endure.
24 H7760 If I have made [H8804] H2091 gold H3689 my hope H559 , or have said [H8804] H3800 to the fine gold H4009 , Thou art my confidence;
25 H8055 If I rejoiced [H8799] H2428 because my wealth H7227 was great H3027 , and because mine hand H4672 had gotten [H8804] H3524 much;
26 H7200 If I beheld [H8799] H216 the sun H1984 when it shined [H8686] H3394 , or the moon H1980 walking [H8802] H3368 in brightness;
27 H3820 And my heart H5643 hath been secretly H6601 enticed [H8799] H6310 , or my mouth H5401 hath kissed [H8799] H3027 my hand:
28 H5771 This also were an iniquity H6416 to be punished by the judge H3584 : for I should have denied [H8765] H410 the God H4605 that is above.
29 H8055 If I rejoiced [H8799] H6365 at the destruction H8130 of him that hated [H8764] H5782 me, or lifted up [H8712] H7451 myself when evil H4672 found [H8804] him:
30 H5414 Neither have I suffered [H8804] H2441 my mouth H2398 to sin [H8800] H7592 by wishing [H8800] H423 a curse H5315 to his soul.
31 H4962 If the men H168 of my tabernacle H559 said [H8804] H5414 not, Oh that we had [H8799] H1320 of his flesh H7646 ! we cannot be satisfied [H8799] .
32 H1616 The stranger H3885 did not lodge [H8799] H2351 in the street H6605 : but I opened [H8799] H1817 my doors H734 to the traveller.
33 H3680 If I covered [H8765] H6588 my transgressions H121 as Adam H2934 , by hiding [H8800] H5771 mine iniquity H2243 in my bosom:
34 H6206 Did I fear [H8799] H7227 a great H1995 multitude H937 , or did the contempt H4940 of families H2865 terrify [H8686] H1826 me, that I kept silence [H8799] H3318 , and went not out [H8799] H6607 of the door?
35 H5414 Oh that [H8799] H8085 one would hear [H8802] H8420 me! behold, my desire H7706 is, that the Almighty H6030 would answer [H8799] H376 me, and that mine adversary H7379 H3789 had written [H8804] H5612 a book.
36 H5375 Surely I would take [H8799] H7926 it upon my shoulder H6029 , and bind [H8799] H5850 it as a crown to me.
37 H5046 I would declare [H8686] H4557 unto him the number H6806 of my steps H5057 ; as a prince H7126 would I go near [H8762] unto him.
38 H127 If my land H2199 cry [H8799] H8525 against me, or that the furrows H3162 likewise H1058 thereof complain [H8799] ;
39 H398 If I have eaten [H8804] H3581 the fruits H3701 thereof without money H1167 , or have caused the owners H5301 thereof to lose [H8689] H5315 their life:
