Job 19:1-29
1. Then Job answered and said,
2. How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?
3. These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.
4. And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.
5. If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:
6. Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.
7. Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
8. He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
9. He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
10. He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.
11. He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.
12. His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.
13. He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.
14. My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.
15. They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.
16. I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.
17. My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.
18. Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.
19. All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.
20. My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
21. Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.
22. Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
23. Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!
24. That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!
25. For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
26. And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
27. Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
28. But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?
29. Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.

Job 20:1-29
1. Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
2. Therefore do my thoughts cause me to answer, and for this I make haste.
3. I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer.
4. Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
5. That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
6. Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
7. Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
8. He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
9. The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
10. His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.
11. His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.
12. Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue;
13. Though he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth:
14. Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him.
15. He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again: God shall cast them out of his belly.
16. He shall suck the poison of asps: the viper's tongue shall slay him.
17. He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter.
18. That which he laboured for shall he restore, and shall not swallow it down: according to his substance shall the restitution be, and he shall not rejoice therein.
19. Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not;
20. Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.
21. There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods.
22. In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits: every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.
23. When he is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain it upon him while he is eating.
24. He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through.
25. It is drawn, and cometh out of the body; yea, the glittering sword cometh out of his gall: terrors are upon him.
26. All darkness shall be hid in his secret places: a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.
27. The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him.
28. The increase of his house shall depart, and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath.
29. This is the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed unto him by God.

Psalms 95:6-11
6. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
7. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
8. Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
9. When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
10. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
11. Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

Proverbs 23:4-5
4. Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
5. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

Romans 13:1-14
1. Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4. For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
6. For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
7. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
8. Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
9. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
10. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
11. And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
12. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
