Job 27:1-23
1. And Job continued his parable and said,
2. [As] God liveth, who hath taken away my right, and the Almighty, who hath embittered my soul,
3. All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils,
4. My lips shall not speak unrighteousness, nor my tongue utter deceit!
5. Be it far from me that I should justify you; till I die I will not remove my blamelessness from me.
6. My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart reproacheth [me] not one of my days.
7. Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.
8. For what is the hope of the ungodly, when [God] cutteth him off, when God taketh away his soul?
9. Will God hear his cry when distress cometh upon him?
10. Doth he delight himself in the Almighty? will he at all times call upon God?
11. I will teach you concerning the hand of God; what is with the Almighty will I not conceal.
12. Behold, ye yourselves have all seen [it]; and why are ye thus altogether vain?
13. This is the portion of the wicked man with God, and the heritage of the violent, which they receive from the Almighty:
14. If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword, and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread;
15. Those that remain of him shall be buried by death, and his widows shall not weep.
16. Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare clothing as the clay;
17. He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on; and the innocent shall divide the silver.
18. He buildeth his house as the moth, and as a booth that a keeper maketh.
19. He lieth down rich, but will do so no more; he openeth his eyes, and he is not.
20. Terrors overtake him like waters; a whirlwind stealeth him away in the night.
21. The east wind carrieth him away and he is gone; and as a storm it hurleth him out of his place.
22. And [God] shall cast upon him and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.
23. [Men] shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.

Job 28:1-28
1. Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold which they refine;
2. Iron is taken out of the dust, and copper is molten out of the stone.
3. [Man] putteth an end to the darkness, and exploreth to the utmost limit, the stones of darkness and of the shadow of death.
4. He openeth a shaft far from the inhabitants [of the earth]: forgotten of the foot, they hang suspended; away below men they hover.
5. As for the earth, out of it cometh bread, and underneath it is turned up as by fire;
6. The stones of it are the place of sapphires, and it hath dust of gold.
7. It is a path no bird of prey knoweth, and the vulture's eye hath not seen it;
8. The proud beasts have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed over it.
9. [Man] putteth forth his hand upon the flinty rock, he overturneth the mountains by the root.
10. He cutteth out channels in the rocks, and his eye seeth every precious thing.
11. He bindeth the streams that they drip not, and what is hidden he bringeth forth to light.
12. But wisdom, where shall it be found? and where is the place of understanding?
13. Man knoweth not the value thereof; and it is not found in the land of the living.
14. The deep saith, It is not in me; and the sea saith, It is not with me.
15. Choice gold cannot be given for it, nor silver be weighed for its price.
16. It is not set in the balance with gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, and the sapphire.
17. Gold and glass cannot be compared to it, nor vessels of fine gold be its exchange.
18. Corals and crystal are no more remembered; yea, the acquisition of wisdom is above rubies.
19. The topaz of Ethiopia shall not be compared to it, neither shall it be set in the balance with pure gold.
20. Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
21. For it is hidden from the eyes of all living, and concealed from the fowl of the heavens.
22. Destruction and death say, We have heard its report with our ears.
23. God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth its place:
24. For he looketh to the ends of the earth, he seeth under the whole heaven.
25. In making a weight for the wind, and meting out the waters by measure,
26. In appointing a statute for the rain, and a way for the thunder's flash:
27. Then did he see it, and declare it; he established it, yea, and searched it out;
28. And unto man he said, Lo, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Psalms 97:1-6
1. Jehovah reigneth: let the earth be glad, let the many isles rejoice.
2. Clouds and darkness are round about him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
3. A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his adversaries round about.
4. His lightnings lightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
5. The mountains melted like wax at the presence of Jehovah, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6. The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.

Proverbs 23:13-14
13. Withhold not correction from the child; for [if] thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die:
14. thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from Sheol.

Romans 16:1-27
1. But I commend to you Phoebe, our sister, who is minister of the assembly which is in Cenchrea;

3. Salute Prisca and Aquila, my fellow-workmen in Christ Jesus,

17. But I beseech you, brethren, to consider those who create divisions and occasions of falling, contrary to the doctrine which *ye* have learnt, and turn away from them.
18. For such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly, and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.
19. For your obedience has reached to all. I rejoice therefore as it regards you; but I wish you to be wise [as] to that which is good, and simple [as] to evil.
20. But the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you.

26. but [which] has now been made manifest, and by prophetic scriptures, according to commandment of the eternal God, made known for obedience of faith to all the nations
27. [the] only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
