Job 12:22  He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death. 

Job 12:23  He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.

Job 12:25  They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man. 


Job 13:1  Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it. 

Job 13:2  What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you. 

Job 13:3  Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God. 

Job 13:4  But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value. 

Job 13:5  O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom. 

Job 13:6  Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips. 

Job 13:7  Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him? 

Job 13:8  Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?

Job 13:13  Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will. 

Job 13:14  Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand? 

Job 13:15  Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. 

Job 13:16  He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him. 

Job 13:17  Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears. 

Job 13:18  Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.

Job 13:25  Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble? 

Job 13:26  For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth. 

Job 13:27  Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet. 

Job 13:28  And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten. 


Job 14:1  Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

Job 14:4  Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one. 

Job 14:5  Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; 

Job 14:6  Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day. 

Job 14:7  For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. 

Job 14:8  Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; 

Job 14:9  Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant. 

Job 14:10  But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he? 

Job 14:11  As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: 

Job 14:12  So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. 

Job 14:13  O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!

Job 14:15  Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

Job 14:18  And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place. 

Job 14:19  The waters wear the stones: thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man.

Job 15:1  Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said, 

Job 15:2  Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind? 

Job 15:3  Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good? 

Job 15:4  Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God. 

Job 15:5  For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty. 

Job 15:6  Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee. 

Job 15:7  Art thou the first man that was born? or wast thou made before the hills? 

Job 15:8  Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself? 

Job 15:9  What knowest thou, that we know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us? 

Job 15:10  With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father. 

Job 15:11  Are the consolations of God small with thee? is there any secret thing with thee? 

Job 15:12  Why doth thine heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at, 

Job 15:13  That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth? 

Job 15:14  What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous? 

Job 15:15  Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight. 

Job 15:16  How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water? 

Job 15:17  I will shew thee, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare; 

Job 15:18  Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it: 

Job 15:19  Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed among them. 

Job 15:20  The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor. 

Job 15:21  A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him. 

Job 15:22  He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword. 

Job 15:23  He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. 

Job 15:24  Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. 

Job 15:25  For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty. 

Job 15:26  He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers: 

Job 15:27  Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks. 

Job 15:28  And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps. 

Job 15:29  He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth. 

Job 15:30  He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away. 

Job 15:31  Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence. 

Job 15:32  It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green. 

Job 15:33  He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive. 

Job 15:34  For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery. 

Job 15:35  They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit. 


1Co 15:29  Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead? 

1Co 15:30  And why stand we in jeopardy every hour? 

1Co 15:31  I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. 

1Co 15:32  If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die. 

1Co 15:33  Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 

1Co 15:34  Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame. 

1Co 15:35  But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? 

1Co 15:36  Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 

1Co 15:37  And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: 

1Co 15:38  But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. 

1Co 15:39  All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. 

1Co 15:40  There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. 

1Co 15:41  There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. 

1Co 15:42  So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: 

1Co 15:43  It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: 

1Co 15:44  It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 

1Co 15:45  And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 

1Co 15:46  Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 

1Co 15:47  The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 

1Co 15:48  As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 

1Co 15:49  And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 

1Co 15:50  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 

1Co 15:51  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 

1Co 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 

1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 

1Co 15:54  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 

1Co 15:55  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 

1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 

1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

1Co 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 


Psa 39:1  To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David. I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. 

Psa 39:2  I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred. 

Psa 39:3  My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue, 

Psa 39:4  LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. 

Psa 39:5  Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. 

Psa 39:6  Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them. 

Psa 39:7  And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee. 

Psa 39:8  Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish. 

Psa 39:9  I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it. 

Psa 39:10  Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand. 

Psa 39:11  When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah. 

Psa 39:12  Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were. 

Psa 39:13  O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more. 


Pro 21:30  There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. 

Pro 21:31  The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.
