Job 16:1  Then Job answered and said, 

Job 16:2  I have heard many such things: miserable comforters are ye all. 

Job 16:3  Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest? 

Job 16:4  I also could speak as ye do: if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you. 

Job 16:5  But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief. 

Job 16:6  Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged: and though I forbear, what am I eased? 

Job 16:7  But now he hath made me weary: thou hast made desolate all my company. 

Job 16:8  And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face. 

Job 16:9  He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me. 

Job 16:10  They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me. 

Job 16:11  God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.

Job 16:15  I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust. 

Job 16:16  My face is foul with weeping, and on my eyelids is the shadow of death; 

Job 16:17  Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure. 

Job 16:18  O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place. 

Job 16:19  Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high. 

Job 16:20  My friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears unto God. 

Job 16:21  O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour! 

Job 16:22  When a few years are come, then I shall go the way whence I shall not return. 


Job 17:1  My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me.

Job 17:8  Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite. 

Job 17:9  The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger. 

Job 17:10  But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you. 

Job 17:11  My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart. 

Job 17:12  They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness. 

Job 17:13  If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness. 

Job 17:14  I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister. 

Job 17:15  And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?

Job 18:6  The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him. 

Job 18:7  The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down. 

Job 18:8  For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare. 

Job 18:9  The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him. 

Job 18:10  The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way. 

Job 18:11  Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet. 

Job 18:12  His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side. 

Job 18:13  It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength. 

Job 18:14  His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors. 

Job 18:15  It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.

Job 18:19  He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings. 

Job 18:20  They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.

Job 19:1  Then Job answered and said, 

Job 19:2  How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words? 

Job 19:3  These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me. 

Job 19:4  And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself. 

Job 19:5  If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach: 

Job 19:6  Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.

Job 19:14  My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me. 

Job 19:15  They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.

Job 19:18  Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me. 

Job 19:19  All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.

Job 19:21  Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me. 

Job 19:22  Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh? 

Job 19:23  Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! 

Job 19:24  That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever! 

Job 19:25  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: 

Job 19:26  And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: 

Job 19:27  Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me. 

Job 19:28  But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me? 

Job 19:29  Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment. 


1Co 16:1  Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.

1Co 16:3  And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem. 

1Co 16:4  And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me. 

1Co 16:5  Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia. 

1Co 16:6  And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go. 

1Co 16:7  For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. 

1Co 16:8  But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. 

1Co 16:9  For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. 

1Co 16:10  Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do. 

1Co 16:11  Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren. 

1Co 16:12  As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.

1Co 16:16  That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth. 

1Co 16:17  I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. 

1Co 16:18  For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such. 

1Co 16:19  The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.

Psa 40:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. 

Psa 40:2  He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. 

Psa 40:3  And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. 

Psa 40:4  Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 

Psa 40:5  Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. 

Psa 40:6  Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. 

Psa 40:7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, 

Psa 40:8  I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. 

Psa 40:9  I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest. 

Psa 40:10  I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation. 


Pro 22:1  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
