August 30th (Day 242) Bible Reading

Job 34:1-36:33
2 Corinthians 4:1-12
Psalm 44:1-8
Proverbs 22:10-12


Job 34:1  Furthermore Elihu answered and said, 

Job 34:2  Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge. 

Job 34:3  For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat. 

Job 34:4  Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good. 

Job 34:5  For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my judgment. 

Job 34:6  Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression. 

Job 34:7  What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water? 

Job 34:8  Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men. 

Job 34:9  For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God. 

Job 34:10  Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity. 

Job 34:11  For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways. 

Job 34:12  Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment. 

Job 34:13  Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath disposed the whole world? 

Job 34:14  If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath; 

Job 34:15  All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust. 

Job 34:16  If now thou hast understanding, hear this: hearken to the voice of my words. 

Job 34:17  Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just? 

Job 34:18  Is it fit to say to a king, Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly? 

Job 34:19  How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands. 

Job 34:20  In a moment shall they die, and the people shall be troubled at midnight, and pass away: and the mighty shall be taken away without hand. 

Job 34:21  For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings. 

Job 34:22  There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 

Job 34:23  For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God. 

Job 34:24  He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. 

Job 34:25  Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed. 

Job 34:26  He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others; 

Job 34:27  Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways: 

Job 34:28  So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted. 

Job 34:29  When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only: 

Job 34:30  That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared. 

Job 34:31  Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more: 

Job 34:32  That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more. 

Job 34:33  Should it be according to thy mind? he will recompense it, whether thou refuse, or whether thou choose; and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest. 

Job 34:34  Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me. 

Job 34:35  Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom. 

Job 34:36  My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men. 

Job 34:37  For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God. 


Job 35:1  Elihu spake moreover, and said, 

Job 35:2  Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God's? 

Job 35:3  For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin? 

Job 35:4  I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee. 

Job 35:5  Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou. 

Job 35:6  If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him? 

Job 35:7  If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand? 

Job 35:8  Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man. 

Job 35:9  By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty. 

Job 35:10  But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night; 

Job 35:11  Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? 

Job 35:12  There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. 

Job 35:13  Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it. 

Job 35:14  Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him. 

Job 35:15  But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity: 

Job 35:16  Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge. 


Job 36:1  Elihu also proceeded, and said, 

Job 36:2  Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God's behalf. 

Job 36:3  I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker. 

Job 36:4  For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee. 

Job 36:5  Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom. 

Job 36:6  He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor. 

Job 36:7  He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted. 

Job 36:8  And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction; 

Job 36:9  Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded. 

Job 36:10  He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity. 

Job 36:11  If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. 

Job 36:12  But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge. 

Job 36:13  But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them. 

Job 36:14  They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean. 

Job 36:15  He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression. 

Job 36:16  Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness. 

Job 36:17  But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee. 

Job 36:18  Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee. 

Job 36:19  Will he esteem thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength. 

Job 36:20  Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place. 

Job 36:21  Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction. 

Job 36:22  Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him? 

Job 36:23  Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity? 

Job 36:24  Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold. 

Job 36:25  Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off. 

Job 36:26  Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out. 

Job 36:27  For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: 

Job 36:28  Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly. 

Job 36:29  Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle? 

Job 36:30  Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea. 

Job 36:31  For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance. 

Job 36:32  With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt. 

Job 36:33  The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour. 


2Co 4:1  Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 

2Co 4:2  But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. 

2Co 4:3  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 

2Co 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 

2Co 4:5  For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 

2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 

2Co 4:7  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 

2Co 4:8  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 

2Co 4:9  Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 

2Co 4:10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 

2Co 4:11  For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 

2Co 4:12  So then death worketh in us, but life in you. 


Psa 44:1  To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil. We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old. 

Psa 44:2  How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out. 

Psa 44:3  For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them. 

Psa 44:4  Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob. 

Psa 44:5  Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. 

Psa 44:6  For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me. 

Psa 44:7  But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us. 

Psa 44:8  In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah. 


Pro 22:10  Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease. 

Pro 22:11  He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend. 

Pro 22:12  The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.
