Chapter 24 14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face.16 In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.17 For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.18 He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned.20 The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.21 He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.22 He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life.23 Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways.24 They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.25 And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth?
Chapter 25 1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,2 Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.3 Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?
Chapter 26 1 But Job answered and said,2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?
