2 H8085 Hear H4405 my words, H2450 ye wise H238 men; And give ear H3045 unto me, ye that have knowledge.
4 H977 Let us choose H4941 for us that which is right: H3045 Let us know H2896 among ourselves what is good.
5 H347 For Job H559 hath said, H6663 I am righteous, H410 And God H5493 hath taken away H4941 my right:
6 H4941 Notwithstanding my right H3576 I am accounted a liar; H2671 My wound H605 is incurable, H6588 though I am without transgression.
8 H732 Who goeth H2274 in company H6466 with the workers H205 of iniquity, H3212 And walketh H7562 with wicked H582 men?
9 H559 For he hath said, H5532 It profiteth H1397 a man H7521 nothing That he should delight H430 himself with God.
10 H8085 Therefore hearken H582 unto me, ye men H3824 of understanding: H2486 Far be it H410 from God, H7562 that he should do wickedness, H7706 And from the Almighty, H5766 that he should commit iniquity.
11 H6467 For the work H120 of a man H7999 will he render H376 unto him, And cause every man H4672 to find H734 according to his ways.
12 H551 Yea, of a surety, H410 God H7561 will not do wickedly, H7706 Neither will the Almighty H5791 pervert H4941 justice.
13 H6485 Who gave him a charge H776 over the earth? H7760 Or who hath disposed H8398 the whole world?
14 H7760 If he set H3820 his heart H622 upon himself, If he gather H7307 unto himself his spirit H5397 and his breath;
15 H1320 All flesh H1478 shall perish H3162 together, H120 And man H7725 shall turn again H6083 unto dust.
16 H998 If now thou hast understanding, H8085 hear H238 this: Hearken H6963 to the voice H4405 of my words.
17 H8130 Shall even one that hateth H4941 justice H2280 govern? H7561 And wilt thou condemn H6662 him that is righteous H3524 and mighty?—
18 H559 Him that saith H4428 to a king, H7563 Thou art vile, H5081 Or to nobles, H1100 Ye are wicked;
19 H5375 That respecteth H6440 not the persons H8269 of princes, H5234 Nor regardeth H7771 the rich H6440 more than H1800 the poor; H4639 For they all are the work H3027 of his hands.
20 H7281 In a moment H4191 they die, H2676 even at midnight; H5971 The people H1607 are shaken H5674 and pass away, H47 And the mighty H5674 are taken away H3027 without hand.
21 H5869 For his eyes H1870 are upon the ways H376 of a man, H7200 And he seeth H6806 all his goings.
22 H2822 There is no darkness, H6757 nor thick gloom, H6466 Where the workers H205 of iniquity H5641 may hide themselves.
23 H7760 For he needeth not further H376 to consider a man, H1980 That he should go H410 before God H4941 in judgment.
24 H7489 He breaketh in pieces H3524 mighty men H2714 in ways past finding H5975 out, And setteth H312 others in their stead.
25 H5234 Therefore he taketh knowledge H4566 of their works; H2015 And he overturneth H3915 them in the night, H1792 so that they are destroyed.
27 H5493 Because they turned aside H310 from following him, H7919 And would not have regard H1870 in any of his ways:
28 H6818 So that they caused the cry H1800 of the poor H935 to come H8085 unto him, And he heard H6818 the cry H6041 of the afflicted.
29 H8252 When he giveth quietness, H7561 who then can condemn? H5641 And when he hideth H6440 his face, H7789 who then can behold H1471 him? Alike whether it be done unto a nation, H3162 or unto a H120 man:
31 H559 For hath any said H410 unto God, H5375 I have borne H2254 chastisement, I will not offend any more:
32 H2372 That which I see H1107 not H3384 teach H6466 thou me: If I have done H5766 iniquity, H3254 I will do it no more?
33 H7999 Shall his recompense H3588 be as thou wilt, that thou refusest H977 it? For thou must choose, H1696 and not I: Therefore speak H3045 what thou knowest.
34 H582 Men H3824 of understanding H559 will say H2450 unto me, Yea, every wise H1397 man H8085 that heareth me:
36 H15 Would H347 that Job H974 were tried H5331 unto the end, H8666 Because of his answering H205 like wicked H582 men.
