Job 7:1-21
1. Is there not a warfare to man upon earth? And are not his days like the days of a hireling?
2. As a servant that earnestly desireth the shadow, And as a hireling that looketh for his wages:
3. So am I made to possess months of misery, And wearisome nights are appointed to me.
4. When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? And I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.
5. My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; My skin closeth up, and breaketh out afresh.
6. My days are swifter than a weavers shuttle, And are spent without hope.
7. Oh remember that my life is a breath: Mine eye shall no more see good.
8. The eye of him that seeth me shall behold me no more; Thine eyes shall be upon me, but I shall not be.
9. As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away, So he that goeth down to Sheol shall come up no more.
10. He shall return no more to his house, Neither shall his place know him any more.
11. Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
12. Am I a sea, or a sea-monster, That thou settest a watch over me?
13. When I say, My bed shall comfort me, My couch shall ease my complaint;
14. Then thou scarest me with dreams, And terrifiest me through visions:
15. So that my soul chooseth strangling, And death rather than these my bones.
16. I loathe my life; I would not live alway: Let me alone; for my days are vanity.
17. What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him, And that thou shouldest set thy mind upon him,
18. And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, And try him every moment?
19. How long wilt thou not look away from me, Nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?
20. If I have sinned, what do I unto thee, O thou watcher of men? Why hast thou set me as a mark for thee, So that I am a burden to myself?
21. And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquity? For now shall I lie down in the dust; And thou wilt seek me diligently, but I shall not be.

Job 8:1-22
1. Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
2. How long wilt thou speak these things? And how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a mighty wind?
3. Doth God pervert justice? Or doth the Almighty pervert righteousness?
4. If thy children have sinned against him, And he hath delivered them into the hand of their transgression;
5. If thou wouldest seek diligently unto God, And make thy supplication to the Almighty;
6. If thou wert pure and upright: Surely now he would awake for thee, And make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
7. And though thy beginning was small, Yet thy latter end would greatly increase.
8. For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, And apply thyself to that which their fathers have searched out:
9. (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, Because our days upon earth are a shadow);
10. Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, And utter words out of their heart?
11. Can the rush grow up without mire? Can the flag grow without water?
12. Whilst it is yet in its greenness, and not cut down, It withereth before any other herb.
13. So are the paths of all that forget God; And the hope of the godless man shall perish:
14. Whose confidence shall break in sunder, And whose trust is a spiders web.
15. He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: He shall hold fast thereby, but it shall not endure.
16. He is green before the sun, And his shoots go forth over his garden.
17. His roots are wrapped about the stone -heap, He beholdeth the place of stones.
18. If he be destroyed from his place, Then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee.
19. Behold, this is the joy of his way; And out of the earth shall others spring.
20. Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, Neither will he uphold the evil-doers.
21. He will yet fill thy mouth with laughter, And thy lips with shouting.
22. They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; And the tent of the wicked shall be no more.

Psalms 92:8-15
8. But thou, O Jehovah, art on high for evermore.
9. For, lo, thine enemies, O Jehovah, For, lo, thine enemies shall perish; All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10. But my horn hast thou exalted like the horn of the wild-ox: I am anointed with fresh oil.
11. Mine eye also hath seen my desire on mine enemies, Mine ears have heard my desire of the evil-doers that rise up against me.
12. The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree: He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13. They are planted in the house of Jehovah; They shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and green:
15. To show that Jehovah is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Proverbs 22:17-21
17. Incline thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, And apply thy heart unto my knowledge.
18. For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee, If they be established together upon thy lips.
19. That thy trust may be in Jehovah, I have made them known to thee this day, even to thee.
20. Have not I written unto thee excellent things Of counsels and knowledge,
21. To make thee know the certainty of the words of truth, That thou mayest carry back words of truth to them that send thee?

Romans 9:1-15
1. I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience bearing witness with me in the Holy Spirit,
2. that I have great sorrow and unceasing pain in my heart.
3. For I could wish that I myself were anathema from Christ for my brethrens sake, my kinsmen according to the flesh:
4. who are Israelites; whose is the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
5. whose are the fathers, and of whom is Christ as concerning the flesh, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
6. But it is not as though the word of God hath come to nought. For they are not all Israel, that are of Israel:
7. neither, because they are Abrahams seed, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
8. That is, it is not the children of the flesh that are children of God; but the children of the promise are reckoned for a seed.
9. For this is a word of promise, According to this season will I come, and Sarah shall have a son.
10. And not only so; but Rebecca also having conceived by one, even by our father Isaac--
11. for the children being not yet born, neither having done anything good or bad, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth,
12. it was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
13. Even as it is written, Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.
14. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
15. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.
