2 H2450 Should a wise man H6030 utter [H8799] H7307 vain H1847 knowledge H4390 , and fill [H8762] H990 his belly H6921 with the east wind?
3 H3198 Should he reason [H8687] H5532 with unprofitable [H8799] H1697 talk H4405 ? or with speeches H3276 wherewith he can do no good [H8686] ?
4 H6565 Yea, thou castest off [H8686] H3374 fear H1639 , and restrainest [H8799] H7881 prayer H6440 before H410 God.
5 H6310 For thy mouth H502 uttereth [H8762] H5771 thine iniquity H977 , and thou choosest [H8799] H3956 the tongue H6175 of the crafty.
6 H6310 Thine own mouth H7561 condemneth [H8686] H8193 thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips H6030 testify [H8799] against thee.
7 H7223 Art thou the first [H8675] H7223 H120 man H3205 that was born [H8735] H2342 ? or wast thou made [H8797] H6440 before H1389 the hills?
8 H8085 Hast thou heard [H8799] H5475 the secret H433 of God H1639 ? and dost thou restrain [H8799] H2451 wisdom to thyself?
9 H3045 What knowest [H8804] H3045 thou, that we know [H8799] H995 not? what understandest [H8799] thou, which is not in us?
10 H7867 With us are both the grayheaded [H8802] H3453 and very aged H3524 men, much H3117 elder H1 than thy father.
11 H8575 Are the consolations H410 of God H4592 small H328 with thee? is there any secret H1697 thing with thee?
12 H3820 Why doth thine heart H3947 carry thee away [H8799] H5869 ? and what do thy eyes H7335 wink at [H8799] ,
13 H7725 That thou turnest [H8686] H7307 thy spirit H410 against God H4405 , and lettest such words H3318 go out [H8689] H6310 of thy mouth?
14 H582 What is man H2135 , that he should be clean [H8799] H3205 ? and he which is born [H8803] H802 of a woman H6663 , that he should be righteous [H8799] ?
15 H539 Behold, he putteth no trust [H8686] H6918 in his saints H8064 ; yea, the heavens H2141 are not clean [H8804] H5869 in his sight.
16 H8581 How much more abominable [H8737] H444 and filthy [H8737] H376 is man H8354 , which drinketh [H8802] H5766 iniquity [H8675] H5766 H4325 like water?
17 H2331 I will shew [H8762] H8085 thee, hear [H8798] H2372 me; and that which I have seen [H8804] H5608 I will declare [H8762] ;
18 H2450 Which wise H5046 men have told [H8686] H1 from their fathers H3582 , and have not hid [H8765] it :
19 H776 Unto whom alone the earth H5414 was given [H8738] H2114 , and no stranger [H8801] H5674 passed [H8804] H8432 among them.
20 H7563 The wicked H2342 man travaileth [H8711] H3117 with pain all his days H4557 , and the number H8141 of years H6845 is hidden [H8738] H6184 to the oppressor.
21 H6343 A dreadful H6963 sound H241 is in his ears H7965 : in prosperity H7703 the destroyer [H8802] H935 shall come [H8799] upon him.
22 H539 He believeth [H8686] H7725 not that he shall return [H8800] H2822 out of darkness H6822 , and he is waited [H8803] H2719 for of the sword.
23 H5074 He wandereth abroad [H8802] H3899 for bread H3045 , saying, Where is it ? he knoweth [H8804] H3117 that the day H2822 of darkness H3559 is ready [H8737] H3027 at his hand.
24 H6862 Trouble H4691 and anguish H1204 shall make him afraid [H8762] H8630 ; they shall prevail [H8799] H4428 against him, as a king H6264 ready H3593 to the battle.
25 H5186 For he stretcheth out [H8804] H3027 his hand H410 against God H1396 , and strengtheneth [H8691] H7706 himself against the Almighty.
26 H7323 He runneth [H8799] H6677 upon him, even on his neck H5672 , upon the thick H1354 bosses H4043 of his bucklers:
27 H3680 Because he covereth [H8765] H6440 his face H2459 with his fatness H6213 , and maketh [H8799] H6371 collops of fat H3689 on his flanks.
28 H7931 And he dwelleth [H8799] H3582 in desolate [H8737] H5892 cities H1004 , and in houses H3427 which no man inhabiteth [H8799] H6257 , which are ready [H8694] H1530 to become heaps.
29 H6238 He shall not be rich [H8799] H2428 , neither shall his substance H6965 continue [H8799] H5186 , neither shall he prolong [H8799] H4512 the perfection H776 thereof upon the earth.
30 H5493 He shall not depart [H8799] H2822 out of darkness H7957 ; the flame H3001 shall dry up [H8762] H3127 his branches H7307 , and by the breath H6310 of his mouth H5493 shall he go away [H8799] .
31 H8582 Let not him that is deceived [H8738] H539 trust [H8686] H7723 in vanity H7723 : for vanity H8545 shall be his recompence.
32 H4390 It shall be accomplished [H8735] H3808 before H3117 his time H3712 , and his branch H7488 shall not be green.
33 H2554 He shall shake off [H8799] H1154 his unripe grape H1612 as the vine H7993 , and shall cast off [H8686] H5328 his flower H2132 as the olive.
34 H5712 For the congregation H2611 of hypocrites H1565 shall be desolate H784 , and fire H398 shall consume [H8804] H168 the tabernacles H7810 of bribery.
