Job 11:1-20
1. Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
2. Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be justified?
3. Should thy boastings make men hold their peace? And when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
4. For thou sayest, My doctrine is pure, And I am clean in thine eyes.
5. But oh that God would speak, And open his lips against thee,
6. And that he would show thee the secrets of wisdom! For he is manifold in understanding. Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
7. Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?
8. It is high as heaven; what canst thou do? Deeper than Sheol; what canst thou know?
9. The measure thereof is longer than the earth, And broader than the sea.
10. If he pass through, and shut up, And all unto judgment, then who can hinder him?
11. For he knoweth false men: He seeth iniquity also, even though he consider it not.
12. But vain man is void of understanding, Yea, man is born as a wild asss colt.
13. If thou set thy heart aright, And stretch out thy hands toward him;
14. If iniquity be in thy hand, put it far away, And let not unrighteousness dwell in thy tents.
15. Surely then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; Yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:
16. For thou shalt forget thy misery; Thou shalt remember it as waters that are passed away,
17. And thy life shall be clearer than the noonday; Though there be darkness, it shall be as the morning.
18. And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; Yea, thou shalt search about thee, and shalt take thy rest in safety.
19. Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; Yea, many shall make suit unto thee.
20. But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, And they shall have no way to flee; And their hope shall be the giving up of the ghost.

Job 12:1-25
1. Then Job answered and said,
2. No doubt but ye are the people, And wisdom shall die with you.
3. But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: Yea, who knoweth not such things as these?
4. I am as one that is a laughing-stock to his neighbor, I who called upon God, and he answered: The just, the perfect man is a laughing-stock.
5. In the thought of him that is at ease there is contempt for misfortune; It is ready for them whose foot slippeth.
6. The tents of robbers prosper, And they that provoke God are secure; Into whose hand God bringeth abundantly.
7. But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; And the birds of the heavens, and they shall tell thee:
8. Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee; And the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.
9. Who knoweth not in all these, That the hand of Jehovah hath wrought this,
10. In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?
11. Doth not the ear try words, Even as the palate tasteth its food?
12. With aged men is wisdom, And in length of days understanding.
13. With God is wisdom and might; He hath counsel and understanding.
14. Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again; He shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.
15. Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up; Again, he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.
16. With him is strength and wisdom; The deceived and the deceiver are his.
17. He leadeth counsellors away stripped, And judges maketh he fools.
18. He looseth the bond of kings, And he bindeth their loins with a girdle.
19. He leadeth priests away stripped, And overthroweth the mighty.
20. He removeth the speech of the trusty, And taketh away the understanding of the elders.
21. He poureth contempt upon princes, And looseth the belt of the strong.
22. He uncovereth deep things out of darkness, And bringeth out to light the shadow of death.
23. He increaseth the nations, and he destroyeth them: He enlargeth the nations, and he leadeth them captive.
24. He taketh away understanding from the chiefs of the people of the earth, And causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.
25. They grope in the dark without light; And he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.

Psalms 94:1-11
1. O Jehovah, thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, Thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, shine forth.
2. Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: Render to the proud their desert.
3. Jehovah, how long shall the wicked, How long shall the wicked triumph?
4. They prate, they speak arrogantly: All the workers of iniquity boast themselves.
5. They break in pieces thy people, O Jehovah, And afflict thy heritage.
6. They slay the widow and the sojourner, And murder the fatherless.
7. And they say, Jehovah will not see, Neither will the God of Jacob consider.
8. Consider, ye brutish among the people; And ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9. He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10. He that chastiseth the nations, shall not he correct, Even he that teacheth man knowledge?
11. Jehovah knoweth the thoughts of man, That they are vanity.

Proverbs 22:24-25
24. Make no friendship with a man that is given to anger; And with a wrathful man thou shalt not go:
25. Lest thou learn this ways, And get a snare to thy soul.

Romans 10:1-21
1. Brethren, my hearts desire and my supplication to God is for them, that they may be saved.
2. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.
3. For being ignorant of Gods righteousness, and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.
4. For Christ is the end of the law unto righteousness to every one that believeth.
5. For Moses writeth that the man that doeth the righteousness which is of the law shall live thereby.
6. But the righteousness which is of faith saith thus, Say not in thy heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down:)
7. or, Who shall descend into the abyss? (That is, to bring Christ up from the dead.)
8. But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach:
9. because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:
10. for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be put to shame.
12. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek: for the same Lord is Lord of all, and is rich unto all that call upon him:
13. for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15. and how shall they preach, except they be sent? even as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things!
16. But they did not all hearken to the glad tidings. For Isaiah saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17. So belief cometh of hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
18. But I say, Did they not hear? Yea, verily, Their sound went out into all the earth, And their words unto the ends of the world.
19. But I say, Did Israel not know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy with that which is no nation, With a nation void of understanding will I anger you.
20. And Isaiah is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I became manifest unto them that asked not of me.
21. But as to Israel he saith, All the day long did I spread out my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
