The Book of Job (WEB)

27: 1Job again took up his parable, and said,

 27:2"As God lives, who has taken away my right,
      The Almighty, who has made my soul bitter.

 27:3(For the length of my life is still in me,
      And the spirit of God is in my nostrils);

 27:4Surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness,
      Neither shall my tongue utter deceit.

 27:5Far be it from me that I should justify you.
      Until I die I will not put away my integrity from me.

 27:6I hold fast to my righteousness, and will not let it go.
      My heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

  27:7"Let my enemy be as the wicked,
      Let him who rises up against me be as the unrighteous.

 27:8For what is the hope of the godless, when he is cut off,
      When God takes away his life?

 27:9Will God hear his cry,
      When trouble comes on him?

 27:10Will he delight himself in the Almighty,
      And call on God at all times?

 27:11I will teach you about the hand of God.
      That which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.

 27:12Behold, all of you have seen it yourselves;
      Why then have you become altogether vain?

  27:13"This is the portion of a wicked man with God,
      The heritage of oppressors, which they receive from the Almighty.

 27:14If his children are multiplied, it is for the sword.
      His offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.

 27:15Those who remain of him shall be buried in death.
      His widows shall make no lamentation.

 27:16Though he heap up silver as the dust,
      And prepare clothing as the clay;

 27:17He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on,
      And the innocent shall divide the silver.

 27:18He builds his house as the moth,
      As a booth which the watchman makes.

 27:19He lies down rich, but he shall not do so again.
      He opens his eyes, and he is not.

 27:20Terrors overtake him like waters;
      A tempest steals him away in the night.

 27:21The east wind carries him away, and he departs;
      It sweeps him out of his place.

 27:22For it hurls at him, and does not spare,
      As he flees away from his hand.

 27:23Men shall clap their hands at him,
      And shall hiss him out of his place.
