1 There was a man in the lande of Vz called Iob, and this man was an vpright and iust man, one that feared God, and eschewed euill. 2 And he had seue sonnes, and three daughters. 3 His substance also was seuen thousande sheepe, and three thousand camels, and fiue hundreth yoke of oxen, and fiue hundreth shee asses, and his family was very great, so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the East. 4 And his sonnes went and banketted in their houses, euery one his day, and sent, and called their three sisters to eate and to drinke with them. 5 And when the dayes of their banketting were gone about, Iob sent, and sanctified them, and rose vp early in the morning, and offred burnt offrings according to the nomber of them all. For Iob thought, It may be that my sonnes haue sinned, and blasphemed God in their hearts: thus did Iob euery day. 6 Nowe on a day when the children of God came and stoode before the Lord, Satan came also among them. 7 Then the Lord sayde vnto Satan, Whence commest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, saying, From compassing the earth to and from, and from walking in it. 8 And the Lord saide vnto Satan, Hast thou not considered my seruant Iob, how none is like him in the earth? an vpright and iust man, one that feareth God, and escheweth euill? 9 Then Satan answered the Lord, and sayde, Doeth Iob feare God for nought? 10 Hast thou not made an hedge about him and about his house, and about all that he hath on euery side? thou hast blessed the worke of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But stretch out now thine hand and touch all that he hath, to see if he will not blaspheme thee to thy face. 12 Then the Lord sayde vnto Satan, Lo, all that he hath is in thine hand: onely vpon himselfe shalt thou not stretch out thine hand. So Satan departed from the presence of the Lord. 13 And on a day, when his sonnes and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house, 14 There came a messenger vnto Iob, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding in their places, 15 And the Shabeans came violently, and tooke them: yea, they haue slayne the seruants with the edge of the sworde: but I onely am escaped alone to tell thee. 16 And whiles he was yet speaking, another came, and sayde, The fire of God is fallen from the heauen, and hath burnt vp the sheepe and the seruants, and deuoured them: but I onely am escaped alone to tell thee. 17 And whiles he was yet speaking, another came, and sayd, The Caldeans set on three bands, and fell vpon the camels, and haue taken them, and haue slayne the seruantes with the edge of the sworde: but I onely am escaped alone to tell thee. 18 And whiles he was yet speaking, came an other, and sayd, Thy sonnes, and thy daughters were eating, and drinking wine in their eldest brothers house, 19 And behold, there came a great wind from beyonde the wildernesse, and smote the foure corners of the house, which fel vpon the children, and they are dead, and I onely am escaped alone to tell thee. 20 Then Iob arose, and rent his garment, and shaued his head, and fel downe vpon the ground, and worshipped, 21 And sayd, Naked came I out of my mothers wombe, and naked shall I returne thither: the Lord hath giuen, and the Lord hath taken it: blessed be the Name of the Lord. 22 In all this did not Iob sinne, nor charge God foolishly.

1 I made a couenant with mine eyes: why then should I thinke on a mayde? 2 For what portion should I haue of God from aboue? and what inheritance of the Almightie from on hie? 3 Is not destruction to the wicked and strange punishment to the workers of iniquitie? 4 Doeth not he beholde my wayes and tell all my steps? 5 If I haue walked in vanitie, or if my foote hath made haste to deceite, 6 Let God weigh me in the iust balance, and he shall know mine vprightnes. 7 If my steppe hath turned out of the way, or mine heart hath walked after mine eye, or if any blot hath cleaued to mine handes, 8 Let me sowe, and let another eate: yea, let my plantes be rooted out. 9 If mine heart hath bene deceiued by a woman, or if I haue layde wayte at the doore of my neighbour, 10 Let my wife grinde vnto another man, and let other men bow downe vpon her: 11 For this is a wickednes, and iniquitie to bee condemned: 12 Yea, this is a fire that shall deuoure to destruction, and which shall roote out al mine increase, 13 If I did contemne the iudgement of my seruant, and of my mayde, when they did contend with me, 14 What then shall I do when God standeth vp? and when he shall visit me, what shall I answere? 15 He that hath made me in the wombe, hath he not made him? hath not he alone facioned vs in the wombe? 16 If I restrained the poore of their desire, or haue caused the eyes of the widow to faile, 17 Or haue eaten my morsels alone, and the fatherles hath not eaten thereof, 18 (For from my youth hee hath growen vp with me as with a father, and from my mothers wombe I haue bene a guide vnto her) 19 If I haue seene any perish for want of clothing, or any poore without couering, 20 If his loynes haue not blessed me, because he was warmed with the fleece of my sheepe, 21 If I haue lift vp mine hande against the fatherlesse, when I saw that I might helpe him in the gate, 22 Let mine arme fal from my shoulder, and mine arme be broken from the bone. 23 For Gods punishment was fearefull vnto me, and I could not be deliuered from his highnes. 24 If I made gold mine hope, or haue sayd to the wedge of golde, Thou art my confidence, 25 If I reioyced because my substance was great, or because mine hand had gotten much,
25 If I reioyced because my substance was great, or because mine hand had gotten much, 26 If I did behold the sunne, when it shined, or the moone, walking in her brightnes, 27 If mine heart did flatter me in secrete, or if my mouth did kisse mine hand, 28 (This also had bene an iniquitie to be condemned: for I had denied the God aboue) 29 If I reioyced at his destruction that hated me, or was mooued to ioye when euill came vpon him, 30 Neither haue I suffred my mouth to sinne, by wishing a curse vnto his soule. 31 Did not the men of my Tabernacle say, Who shall giue vs of his flesh? we can not bee satisfied. 32 The stranger did not lodge in the streete, but I opened my doores vnto him, that went by the way. 33 If I haue hid my sinne, as Adam, concealing mine iniquitie in my bosome, 34 Though I could haue made afraid a great multitude, yet the most contemptible of the families did feare me: so I kept silence, and went not out of the doore. 35 Oh that I had some to heare me! beholde my signe that the Almightie will witnesse for me: though mine aduersary should write a booke against me, 36 Woulde not I take it vpon my shoulder, and binde it as a crowne vnto me? 37 I will tell him the nomber of my goings, and goe vnto him as to a prince. 38 If my lande cry against me, or the furrowes thereof complayne together, 39 If I haue eaten the fruites thereof without siluer: or if I haue grieued the soules of the masters thereof, 40 Let thistles growe in steade of wheate, and cockle in the stead of Barley. The wordes of Iob are ended.
10 Therefore hearken vnto me, ye men of wisedome, God forbid that wickednesse should be in God, and iniquitie in the Almightie.
14 If he set his heart vpon man, and gather vnto him selfe his spirit and his breath,
7 When the starres of the morning praysed me together, and all the children of God reioyced:
4 Or hast thou an arme like God? or doest thou thunder with a voyce like him? 5 Decke thy selfe now with maiestie and excellencie, and aray thy selfe with beautie and glory. 6 Cast abroad the indignation of thy wrath, and beholde euery one that is proude, and abase him. 7 Looke on euery one that is arrogant, and bring him lowe: and destroy the wicked in their place. 8 Hide them in the dust together, and binde their faces in a secret place.
25 He beholdeth al hie things: he is a King ouer all the children of pride.
7 Now after that the Lord had spoken these wordes vnto Iob, ye Lord also said vnto Eliphaz ye Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for yee haue not spoken of me the thing that is right, like my seruant Iob. 8 Therefore take vnto you nowe seuen bullockes, and seuen rammes, and go to my seruant Iob, and offer vp for your selues a burnt offring, and my seruant Iob shall pray for you: for I wil accept him, least I should put you to shame, because ye haue not spoken of me the thing, which is right, like my seruant Iob.
8 Therefore take vnto you nowe seuen bullockes, and seuen rammes, and go to my seruant Iob, and offer vp for your selues a burnt offring, and my seruant Iob shall pray for you: for I wil accept him, least I should put you to shame, because ye haue not spoken of me the thing, which is right, like my seruant Iob.
3 Heare my voyce in the morning, O Lord: for in the morning will I direct me vnto thee, and I will waite.
12 For thou Lord wilt blesse the righteous, and with fauour wilt compasse him, as with a shielde.
23 I was vpright also with him, and haue kept me from my wickednes.
1 A Psalme of Dauid, when he changed his behauiour before Abimelech, who droue him away, and he departed. I will alway giue thankes vnto the Lord: his praise shalbe in my mouth continually.
7 The Angel of the Lord pitcheth round about them, that feare him, and deliuereth them.
14 Eschewe euill and doe good: seeke peace and follow after it.
19 Great are the troubles of the righteous: but the Lord deliuereth him out of them all.
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid, the servant of the Lord. Wickedness sayeth to the wicked man, euen in mine heart, that there is no feare of God before his eyes.
27 Flee from euill and doe good, and dwell for euer.
9 I should haue bene dumme, and not haue opened my mouth, because thou didest it.
17 For he shall take nothing away when he dieth, neither shall his pompe descende after him.
21 Thou wilt increase mine honour, and returne and comfort me.
10 The Kings of Tarshish and of the yles shall bring presents: the Kings of Sheba and Seba shall bring giftes.
10 Surely the rage of man shall turne to thy praise: the remnant of the rage shalt thou restrayne.
12 Why hast thou then broken downe her hedges, so that all they, which passe by the way, haue plucked her?
11 For the Lord God is the sunne and shielde vnto vs: the Lord will giue grace and glory, and no good thing will he withhold from them that walke vprightly.
20 I haue found Dauid my seruant: with mine holy oyle haue I anoynted him.
38 But thou hast reiected and abhorred, thou hast bene angry with thine Anoynted. 39 Thou hast broken the couenant of thy seruant, and profaned his crowne, casting it on the ground. 40 Thou hast broken downe all his walles: thou hast layd his fortresses in ruine. 41 All that goe by the way, spoyle him: he is a rebuke vnto his neighbours. 42 Thou hast set vp the right hand of his enemies, and made all his aduersaries to reioyce. 43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sworde, and hast not made him to stand in the battell. 44 Thou hast caused his dignitie to decay, and cast his throne to the ground. 45 The dayes of his youth hast thou shortned, and couered him with shame. Selah. 46 Lord, howe long wilt thou hide thy selfe, for euer? shall thy wrath burne like fire? 47 Remember of what time I am: wherefore shouldest thou create in vaine all the children of men? 48 What man liueth, and shall not see death? shall hee deliuer his soule from the hande of the graue? Selah. 49 Lord, where are thy former mercies, which thou swarest vnto Dauid in thy trueth? 50 Remember, O Lord, the rebuke of thy seruants, which I beare in my bosome of all the mightie people. 51 For thine enemies haue reproched thee, O Lord, because they haue reproched the footesteps of thine Anointed. 52 Praised be the Lord for euermore. So be it, euen so be it.
17 And let the beautie of the Lord our God be vpon vs, and direct thou the worke of our hands vpon vs, euen direct the worke of our handes.
20 Prayse the Lord, ye his Angels, that excell in strength, that doe his commandement in obeying the voyce of his worde.

38 For he blesseth them, and they multiplie exceedingly, and he diminisheth not their cattell.
3 Beholde, children are the inheritance of the Lord, and the fruite of the wombe his rewarde. 4 As are the arrowes in the hand of ye strong man: so are the children of youth. 5 Blessed is the man, that hath his quiuer full of them: for they shall not be ashamed, when they speake with their enemies in the gate.
1 A song of degrees. Blessed is euery one that feareth the Lord and walketh in his wayes. 2 When thou eatest the labours of thine hands, thou shalt be blessed, and it shall be well with thee. 3 Thy wife shalbe as the fruitfull vine on the sides of thine house, and thy children like the oliue plantes round about thy table.
1 A song of degrees or Psalme of David. Behold, howe good and howe comely a thing it is, brethren to dwell euen together.
13 The feare of the Lord is to hate euill as pride, and arrogancie, and the euill way: and a mouth that speaketh lewde things, I doe hate.
22 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh riche, and he doeth adde no sorowes with it.

2 All things come alike to all: and the same condition is to the iust and to the wicked, to the good and to the pure, and to the polluted, and to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner, he that sweareth, as he that feareth an othe.
10 All that thine hand shall finde to doe, doe it with all thy power: for there is neither worke nor inuention, nor knowledge, nor wisedome in the graue whither thou goest.

5 And nowe I will tell you what I will do to my vineyarde: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten vp: I will breake the wall thereof, and it shall be troden downe:
25 Therefore is the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, and hee hath stretched out his hand vpon them, and hath smitten them that the mountaines did tremble: and their carkases were torne in the middes of the streetes, and for all this his wrath was not turned away, but his hande was stretched out still.
