Job 13:1-28
1. "Behold, my eye has seen all this, My ear has heard and understood it.
2. "What you know I also know; I am not inferior to you.
3. "But I would speak to the Almighty, And I desire to argue with God.
4. "But you smear with lies; You are all worthless physicians.
5. "O that you would be completely silent, And that it would become your wisdom!
6. "Please hear my argument And listen to the contentions of my lips.
7. "Will you speak what is unjust for God, And speak what is deceitful for Him?
8. "Will you show partiality for Him? Will you contend for God?
9. "Will it be well when He examines you? Or will you deceive Him as one deceives a man?
10. "He will surely reprove you If you secretly show partiality.
11. "Will not His majesty terrify you, And the dread of Him fall on you?
12. "Your memorable sayings are proverbs of ashes, Your defenses are defenses of clay.
13. "Be silent before me so that I may speak; Then let come on me what may.
14. "Why should I take my flesh in my teeth And put my life in my hands?
15. "Though He slay me, I will hope in Him. Nevertheless I will argue my ways before Him.
16. "This also will be my salvation, For a godless man may not come before His presence.
17. "Listen carefully to my speech, And let my declaration fill your ears.
18. "Behold now, I have prepared my case; I know that I will be vindicated.
19. "Who will contend with me? For then I would be silent and die.
20. "Only two things do not do to me, Then I will not hide from Your face:
21. Remove Your hand from me, And let not the dread of You terrify me.
22. "Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, then reply to me.
23. "How many are my iniquities and sins? Make known to me my rebellion and my sin.
24. "Why do You hide Your face And consider me Your enemy?
25. "Will You cause a driven leaf to tremble? Or will You pursue the dry chaff?
26. "For You write bitter things against me And make me to inherit the iniquities of my youth.
27. "You put my feet in the stocks And watch all my paths; You set a limit for the soles of my feet,
28. While I am decaying like a rotten thing, Like a garment that is moth-eaten.

Job 14:1-22
1. "Man, who is born of woman, Is short-lived and full of turmoil.
2. "Like a flower he comes forth and withers. He also flees like a shadow and does not remain.
3. "You also open Your eyes on him And bring him into judgment with Yourself.
4. "Who can make the clean out of the unclean? No one!
5. "Since his days are determined, The number of his months is with You; And his limits You have set so that he cannot pass.
6. "Turn Your gaze from him that he may rest, Until he fulfills his day like a hired man.
7. "For there is hope for a tree, When it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And its shoots will not fail.
8. "Though its roots grow old in the ground And its stump dies in the dry soil,
9. At the scent of water it will flourish And put forth sprigs like a plant.
10. "But man dies and lies prostrate. Man expires, and where is he?
11. "As water evaporates from the sea, And a river becomes parched and dried up,
12. So man lies down and does not rise. Until the heavens are no longer, He will not awake nor be aroused out of his sleep.
13. "Oh that You would hide me in Sheol, That You would conceal me until Your wrath returns to You, That You would set a limit for me and remember me!
14. "If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my struggle I will wait Until my change comes.
15. "You will call, and I will answer You; You will long for the work of Your hands.
16. "For now You number my steps, You do not observe my sin.
17. "My transgression is sealed up in a bag, And You wrap up my iniquity.
18. "But the falling mountain crumbles away, And the rock moves from its place;
19. Water wears away stones, Its torrents wash away the dust of the earth; So You destroy man's hope.
20. "You forever overpower him and he departs; You change his appearance and send him away.
21. "His sons achieve honor, but he does not know it; Or they become insignificant, but he does not perceive it.
22. "But his body pains him, And he mourns only for himself."

Psalms 94:12-19
12. Blessed is the man whom You chasten, O LORD, And whom You teach out of Your law;
13. That You may grant him relief from the days of adversity, Until a pit is dug for the wicked.
14. For the LORD will not abandon His people, Nor will He forsake His inheritance.
15. For judgment will again be righteous, And all the upright in heart will follow it.
16. Who will stand up for me against evildoers? Who will take his stand for me against those who do wickedness?
17. If the LORD had not been my help, My soul would soon have dwelt in the abode of silence.
18. If I should say, "My foot has slipped," Your lovingkindness, O LORD, will hold me up.
19. When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.

Proverbs 22:26-27
26. Do not be among those who give pledges, Among those who become guarantors for debts.
27. If you have nothing with which to pay, Why should he take your bed from under you?

Romans 11:1-18
1. I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2. God has not rejected His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says in the passage about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel?
3. "Lord, THEY HAVE KILLED YOUR PROPHETS, THEY HAVE TORN DOWN YOUR ALTARS, AND I ALONE AM LEFT, AND THEY ARE SEEKING MY LIFE."
4. But what is the divine response to him? "I HAVE KEPT for Myself SEVEN THOUSAND MEN WHO HAVE NOT BOWED THE KNEE TO BAAL."
5. In the same way then, there has also come to be at the present time a remnant according to God's gracious choice.
6. But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.
7. What then? What Israel is seeking, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened;
8. just as it is written, "GOD GAVE THEM A SPIRIT OF STUPOR, EYES TO SEE NOT AND EARS TO HEAR NOT, DOWN TO THIS VERY DAY."
9. And David says, "LET THEIR TABLE BECOME A SNARE AND A TRAP, AND A STUMBLING BLOCK AND A RETRIBUTION TO THEM.
10. "LET THEIR EYES BE DARKENED TO SEE NOT, AND BEND THEIR BACKS FOREVER."
11. I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May it never be! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make them jealous.
12. Now if their transgression is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fulfillment be!
13. But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,
14. if somehow I might move to jealousy my fellow countrymen and save some of them.
15. For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
16. If the first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too.
17. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree,
18. do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you.
