Job 41:1-34
1. Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord?
2. Canst thou put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook?
3. Will he make many supplications unto thee? Or will he speak soft words unto thee?
4. Will he make a covenant with thee, That thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever?
5. Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
6. Will the bands of fishermen make traffic of him? Will they part him among the merchants?
7. Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons, Or his head with fish-spears?
8. Lay thy hand upon him; Remember the battle, and do so no more.
9. Behold, the hope of him is in vain: Will not one be cast down even at the sight of him?
10. None is so fierce that he dare stir him up; Who then is he that can stand before me?
11. Who hath first given unto me, that I should repay him? Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.
12. I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, Nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame.
13. Who can strip off his outer garment? Who shall come within his jaws?
14. Who can open the doors of his face? Round about his teeth is terror.
15. His strong scales are his pride, Shut up together as with a close seal.
16. One is so near to another, That no air can come between them.
17. They are joined one to another; They stick together, so that they cannot be sundered.
18. His sneezings flash forth light, And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
19. Out of his mouth go burning torches, And sparks of fire leap forth.
20. Out of his nostrils a smoke goeth, As of a boiling pot and burning rushes.
21. His breath kindleth coals, And a flame goeth forth from his mouth.
22. In his neck abideth strength, And terror danceth before him.
23. The flakes of his flesh are joined together: They are firm upon him; they cannot be moved.
24. His heart is as firm as a stone; Yea, firm as the nether millstone.
25. When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid: By reason of consternation they are beside themselves.
26. If one lay at him with the sword, it cannot avail; Nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft.
27. He counteth iron as straw, And brass as rotten wood.
28. The arrow cannot make him flee: Sling-stones are turned with him into stubble.
29. Clubs are counted as stubble: He laugheth at the rushing of the javelin.
30. His underparts are like sharp potsherds: He spreadeth as it were a threshing-wain upon the mire.
31. He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: He maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.
32. He maketh a path to shine after him; One would think the deep to be hoary.
33. Upon earth there is not his like, That is made without fear.
34. He beholdeth everything that is high: He is king over all the sons of pride.

Job 42:1-17
1. Then Job answered Jehovah, and said,
2. I know that thou canst do all things, And that no purpose of thine can be restrained.
3. Who is this that hideth counsel without knowledge? Therefore have I uttered that which I understood not, Things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
4. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
5. I had heard of thee by the hearing of the ear; But now mine eye seeth thee:
6. Wherefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.
7. And it was so, that, after Jehovah had spoken these words unto Job, Jehovah said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends; for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
8. Now therefore, take unto you seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt-offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you; for him will I accept, that I deal not with you after your folly; for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
9. So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as Jehovah commanded them: and Jehovah accepted Job.
10. And Jehovah turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: and Jehovah gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11. Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him concerning all the evil that Jehovah had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one a ring of gold.
12. So Jehovah blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: And he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she-asses.
13. He had also seven sons and three daughters.
14. And he called the name of the first, Jemimah: and the name of the second, Keziah; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch.
15. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
16. And after this Job lived a hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons sons, even four generations.
17. So Job died, being old and full of days.

Psalms 101:5-8
5. Whoso privily slandereth his neighbor, him will I destroy: Him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer.
6. Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: He that walketh in a perfect way, he shall minister unto me.
7. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: He that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes.
8. Morning by morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land; To cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of Jehovah. Psalm 102 A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before Jehovah.

Proverbs 23:31-35
31. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, When it sparkleth in the cup, When it goeth down smoothly:
32. At the last it biteth like a serpent, And stingeth like an adder.
33. Thine eyes shall behold strange things, And thy heart shall utter perverse things.
34. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, Or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
35. They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not hurt; They have beaten me, and I felt it not: When shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.

1 Corinthians 7:1-19
1. Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2. But, because of fornications, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.
3. Let the husband render unto the wife her due: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4. The wife hath not power over her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power over his own body, but the wife.
5. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be by consent for a season, that ye may give yourselves unto prayer, and may be together again, that Satan tempt you not because of your incontinency.
6. But this I say by way of concession, not of commandment.
7. Yet I would that all men were even as I myself. Howbeit each man hath his own gift from God, one after this manner, and another after that.
8. But I say to the unmarried and to widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.
9. But if they have not continency, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
10. But unto the married I give charge, yea not I, but the Lord, That the wife depart not from her husband
11. (but should she depart, let her remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband); and that the husband leave not his wife.
12. But to the rest say I, not the Lord: If any brother hath an unbelieving wife, and she is content to dwell with him, let him not leave her.
13. And the woman that hath an unbelieving husband, and he is content to dwell with her, let her not leave her husband.
14. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in the brother: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
15. Yet if the unbelieving departeth, let him depart: the brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us in peace.
16. For how knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? Or how knowest thou, O husband, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
17. Only, as the Lord hath distributed to each man, as God hath called each, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all the churches.
18. Was any man called being circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Hath any been called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised.
19. Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing; but the keeping of the commandments of God.
