Job 9:1-35
1. Then Job answered and said,
2. I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?
3. If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.
4. He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered?
5. Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.
6. Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.
7. Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.
8. Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.
9. Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.
10. Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.
11. Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.
12. Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou?
13. If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.
14. How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him?
15. Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge.
16. If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.
17. For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.
18. He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.
19. If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead?
20. If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
21. Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.
22. This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.
23. If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.
24. The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?
25. Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.
26. They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.
27. If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself:
28. I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.
29. If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?
30. If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;
31. Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me.
32. For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.
33. Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.
34. Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me:
35. Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me.

Job 10:1-22
1. My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
2. I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.
3. Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
4. Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?
5. Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man's days,
6. That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?
7. Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.
8. Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.
9. Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?
10. Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?
11. Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.
12. Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.
13. And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.
14. If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.
15. If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction;
16. For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
17. Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.
18. Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!
19. I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.
20. Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,
21. Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;
22. A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.

Psalms 93:1-5
1. The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
2. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
3. The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
4. The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

Proverbs 22:22-23
22. Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
23. For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.

Romans 9:16-33
16. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
17. For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
18. Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
19. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
20. Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21. Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
22. What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
23. And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
24. Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
25. As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.
26. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.
27. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:
28. For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
29. And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.
30. What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
31. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
32. Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;
33. As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
