Job Chapter 21

, . 1 {S} Then Job answered and said:
, ; -, . 2 Hear diligently my speech; and let this be your consolations.
, ; . 3 Suffer me, that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on.
, ; -, - . 4 As for me, is my complaint to man? Or why should I not be impatient?
- ; -. 5 Turn unto me, and be astonished, and lay your hand upon your mouth.
- ; , . 6 Even when I remember I am affrighted, and horror hath taketh hold on my flesh.
, ; , - . 7 Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, wax mighty in power?
; , . 8 Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.
; . 9 Their houses are safe, without fear, neither is the rod of God upon them.
, ; , . 10 Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf.
, ; , . 11 They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance.
, ; , . 12 They sing to the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the pipe.
() ; , . 13 They spend their days in prosperity, and peacefully they go down to the grave.
, ; , . 14 Yet they said unto God: 'Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of Thy ways.
- -; -, -. 15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve Him? And what profit should we have, if we pray unto Him?'--
; , . 16 Lo, their prosperity is not in their hand; the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
, - -- ;
, .
17 How oft is it that the lamp of the wicked is put out? that their calamity cometh upon them? {N}
that He distributeth pains in His anger?
, -; , . 18 That they are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm stealeth away?
, - ; . 19 'God layeth up his iniquity for his children!'--let Him recompense it unto himself, that he may know it.
; . 20 Let his own eyes see his destruction, and let him drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
- ; . 21 For what pleasure hath he in his house after him? seeing the number of his months is determined.
-; , . 22 Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing it is He that judgeth those that are high.
--, ; , . 23 One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet;
, ; . 24 His pails are full of milk, and the marrow of his bones is moistened.
--, ; -, . 25 And another dieth in bitterness of soul, and hath never tasted of good.
, - ; , . 26 They lie down alike in the dust, and the worm covereth them.
, ; , . 27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me.
, -; , . 28 For ye say: 'Where is the house of the prince? And where is the tent wherein the wicked dwelt?'
, ; , . 29 Have ye not asked them that go by the way; and will ye misdeem their tokens,
, ; . 30 That the evil man is reserved to the day of calamity, that they are led forth to the day of wrath?
- - ; -, -. 31 But who shall declare his way to his face? And who shall repay him what he hath done?
, ; - . 32 For he is borne to the grave, and watch is kept over his tomb.
-, -: , - ; , . 33 The clods of the valley are sweet unto him, and all men draw after him, as there were innumerable before him.
, ; , -. 34 How then comfort ye me in vain? And as for your answers, there remaineth only faithlessness?
