Job Chapter 31

, ; , -. 1 I made a covenant with mine eyes; how then should I look upon a maid?
, ; , . 2 For what would be the portion of God from above, and the heritage of the Almighty from on high?
- ; , . 3 Is it not calamity to the unrighteous, and disaster to the workers of iniquity?
-, ; - . 4 Doth not He see my ways, and count all my steps?
- -; - . 5 If I have walked with vanity, and my foot hath hasted to deceit--
-; , . 6 Let me be weighed in a just balance, that God may know mine integrity--
, :
, ; , .
7 If my step hath turned out of the way, {N}
and my heart walked after mine eyes, and if any spot hath cleaved to my hands;
, ; . 8 Then let me sow, and let another eat; yea, let the produce of my field be rooted out.
- , -; - . 9 If my heart have been enticed unto a woman, and I have lain in wait at my neighbour's door;
; , . 10 Then let my wife grind unto another, and let others bow down upon her.
- () ; (), ‍ . 11 For that were a heinous crime; yea, it were an iniquity to be punished by the judges.
, - ; - . 12 For it is a fire that consumeth unto destruction, and would root out all mine increase.
--- , : , . 13 If I did despise the cause of my man-servant, or of my maid-servant, when they contended with me--
, - ; -, . 14 What then shall I do when God riseth up? And when He remembereth, what shall I answer Him?
-, ; , . 15 Did not He that made me in the womb make him? And did not One fashion us in the womb?
-, ; . 16 If I have withheld aught that the poor desired, or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail;
; - . 17 Or have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof--
, ; . 18 Nay, from my youth he grew up with me as with a father, and I have been her guide from my mother's womb.
- , ; , . 19 If I have seen any wanderer in want of clothing, or that the needy had no covering;
- ; , . 20 If his loins have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;
- - : - , . 21 If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, because I saw my help in the gate;
, ; , . 22 Then let my shoulder fall from the shoulder-blade, and mine arm be broken from the bone.
, ; , . 23 For calamity from God was a terror to me, and by reason of His majesty I could do nothing.
- ; , . 24 If I have made gold my hope, and have said to the fine gold: 'Thou art my confidence';
-, - ; -, . 25 If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because my hand had gotten much;
- , ; , . 26 If I beheld the sun when it shined, or the moon walking in brightness;
; . 27 And my heart hath been secretly enticed, and my mouth hath kissed my hand;
-, ‍ : - . 28 This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judges; for I should have lied to God that is above.
-, ; , - . 29 If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me, or exulted when evil found him--
- -- . 30 Yea, I suffered not my mouth to sin by asking his life with a curse.
- , ; - , . 31 If the men of my tent said not: 'Who can find one that hath not been satisfied with his meat?'
, - ; , . 32 The stranger did not lodge in the street; my doors I opened to the roadside.
- -- ‍. 33 If after the manner of men I covered my transgressions, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom--
, -- - ;
, - .
34 Because I feared the great multitude, and the most contemptible among families terrified me, {N}
so that I kept silence, and went not out of the door.
-, -- -, ;
, .
35 Oh that I had one to hear me!--Lo, here is my signature, let the Almighty answer me-- {N}
and that I had the indictment which mine adversary hath written!
- -, ; . 36 Surely I would carry it upon my shoulder; I would bind it unto me as a crown.
, ; -, . 37 I would declare unto him the number of my steps; as a prince would I go near unto him.
-, ; , . 38 If my land cry out against me, and the furrows thereof weep together;
-, -; . 39 If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, or have caused the tillers thereof to be disappointed--
, --- : , . 40 Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and noisome weeds instead of barley. The words of Job are ended. {P}
