Job 29:1-25
1. So Job proceeded and went forth in his communication, saying:
2. Oh that I were as I was in the months by past, and in the days when God preserved me:
3. When his light shined upon my head: when I went after the same light and shining even thorow the darkness.
4. As it stood with me, when I was wealthy and had ynough: when God prospered my house:
5. When the Almighty was with me: when my household folks stood about me:
6. When my ways ran over with butter, and when the stony rocks gave me rivers of oil:
7. When I went thorow the city unto the gate, and when they set me a chair in the street:
8. When the young men (as soon as they saw me) hid themselves, and when the aged arose, and stood up unto me:
9. when the princes left of their talking, and laid their hand to their mouth:
10. when the mighty kept still their voice, and when their tongues cleaved to the roof of their mouths.
11. When all they that heard me, called me happy: and when all they that saw me, wished me good.
12. For I delivered the poor when he cried, and the fatherless that wanted help.
13. He that should have been lost, gave me a good word, and the widow's heart praised me.
14. And why? I put upon me righteousness, which covered me as a garment, and equity was my crown.
15. I was an eye unto the blind, and a foot to the lame,
16. I was a father unto the poor, and when I knew not their cause, I sought it out diligently.
17. I brake the chafes of the unrighteous, and plucked the spoil out of their teeth.
18. Therefore, I thought verily, that I should have died in my nest: and that my days should have been as many as the sands of the sea.
19. For my root was spread out by the water's side, and the dew lay upon my corn.
20. My honor increased(encreased) more and more, and my bow was ever the stronger in my hand.
21. Unto me men gave ear, me they regarded, and with silence they tarried for my counsel.
22. If I had spoken, they would have it none other ways, my words were so well taken among them.
23. They waited for me, as the earth doth for the rain: and gaped upon me, as the ground doth to receive the latter shower.
24. When I laughed, they knew well it was not earnest: and this testimony of my countenance pleased them nothing at all.
25. When I agreed unto their way, I was the chief, and sat as a king among his servants: Or as one that comforteth such as be in heaviness.

Job 30:1-31
1. But now they that are mine inferiors and younger than I, have me in derision: yea even they, whose fathers I would have thought scorn to have set with the dogs of my cattle.
2. The power and strength of their hands might do me no good, and as for their age, it is spent and past away without any profit.
3. For very misery and hunger, they went about in the wilderness like wretches and beggars,
4. plucking up herbs from among the bushes, and the Junipers root was their meat.
5. And when they were driven forth, men cried after them, as it had been after a thief.
6. Their dwelling was beside foul brooks, yea in the caves and dens of the earth.
7. Upon the dry heath went they about crying, and in the broom hills they gathered them together.
8. They were children of fools and villains, which are dead away from the world.
9. Now am I their song, and am become their jesting stock:
10. they abhor me, they flee far from me, and stain my face with spittle,
11. for the Lord(LORDE) hath opened his quiver, he hath hit me and put a bridle in my mouth.
12. Upon my right hand they rose together against me, they have hurt my feet, made a way to destroy me,
13. and my path have they clean marred. It was so easy for them to do me harm, that they needed no man to help them.
14. They fell upon me, as it had been the breaking in of waters, and came in by heaps to destroy me.
15. Fearfulness is turned against me. Mine honour vanisheth away more swiftly than wind, and my prosperity departeth hence like as it were a cloud.
16. Therefore is my mind poured full of heaviness, and the days of trouble have taken hold upon me.
17. My bones are pierced thorow in the night season, and my sinews take no rest.
18. With all their power have they changed my garment, and girded me therewith, as it were with a coat.
19. I am even as it were clay, and am become like ashes and dust.
20. When I cry unto thee, thou doest not hear me: and though I stand before thee, yet thou regardest me not.
21. Thou art become mine enemy, and with thy violent hand thou takest part against me.
22. In times past thou didst set me up on high,(an hye) as it were above the wind, but now hast thou given me a very sore fall.
23. Sure I am, that thou wilt deliver me unto death: whereas a lodging is prepared for all men living.
24. Now use not me to do violence unto them, that are destroyed already: but where hurt is done, there use they to help.
25. Did not I weep in the time of trouble? Had not my soul compassion upon the poor?
26. Yet nevertheless where as I looked for good, evil happened unto me: and where as I waited for light, there came darkness.
27. My bowels seeth within me, and take no rest, for the days of my trouble are come upon me.
28. Meekly and lowly came I in, yea and without any displeasure: I stood up in the congregation, and communed with them.
29. But now I am a companion of dragons, and a fellow of Ostriches.
30. My skin upon me is turned to black, and my bones are brent with heat:
31. my harp is turned to sorrow, and my pipe to weeping.

Psalms 97:7-12
7. Confounded be all they that worship images, and delight in their Idols: worship him all ye gods.
8. Sion heareth of it and rejoiceth: yea and the daughters of Judah are glad because of thy judgments, O LORD.
9. For thou LORD art the most highest(hyest) over all the earth, thou art exalted far above all gods.
10. O ye that love the LORD, see that ye hate the thing which is evil: the LORD preserveth the souls of his saints, he shall deliver them from the hand of the ungodly.
11. There is sprung up a light for the righteous, and a joyful gladness for such as be true hearted.
12. Rejoice therefore in the LORD, ye righteous: and give thanks for a remembrance of his holiness.

Proverbs 23:15-16
15. My son, if thy heart receive wisdom, my heart also shall rejoice:
16. yea my reins shall be very glad, if thy lips speak the thing that is right.

1 Corinthians 1:1-31
1. Paul by vocation(called to be) an apostle of Jesus Christ thorow the will of God, and brother Sostenes.
2. Unto the congregation of God which is at Corinthum. To them that are sanctified in Jesus(Iesu) Christ, saints by calling, with all that call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, both of theirs and of ours.
3. Grace be with you and peace from God our father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
4. I thank my God always on your behalf for the favour(grace) of God which is given you by Jesus Christ,
5. that in all things(points) ye are made rich by him, in all speech(learning)(every word) and in all knowledge(manner of knowledge)
6. (even as the testimony of Jesus Christ was confirmed in you,)
7. so that ye are behind in no gift,(want nothing in any gift) and wait for the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ
8. which shall strength you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day (of the coming) of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9. (For) God is faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ our Lord.
10. I beseech you brethren in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak one thing, and that there be no dissension among you: but be ye perfect(knit together) in one mind, and one meaning:
11. It is shewed unto me (my brethren) of you by them that are of the house of Cloe, that there is strife among you;
12. I speak of that which everyone of you sayth:(And this is it that I mean: how that commonly among you, one sayeth:) I hold of Paul; Another sayth: I hold of Apollo: Another(the third) saith: I hold of Cephas: and another saith(the fourth that) I hold of Christ.
13. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? other(either) were ye baptised in the name of Paul?
14. I thank God that I christened(have baptised) none of you, but Crispus and Gaius,
15. lest any should say that I in mine own name had baptised.
16. I baptised also the house of Stephana. Furthermore know I not whether I baptised any man (of you) or no.
17. For Christ sent me not to baptise, but to preach the gospel,(gospell) not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should have been made of none effect.
18. For the preaching(word) of the cross is to them that perish foolishness: but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God.
19. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will cast away the understanding of the prudent.
20. Where is the wise man? where is the scribe? where is the searcher(disputers) of this world? Hath not God made the wisdom of this world foolishness?
21. For when the world thorow wisdom knew not God, in the wisdom of God: it pleased God thorow foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
22. For the jews require a sign,(tokens) and the greeks seek(ask) after wisdom.
23. But we preach Christ crucified, unto the jews an occasion of falling and unto the greeks foolishness:
24. but unto them which are called both of jews and greeks we preach Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25. For Godly foolishness(the foolishness of God) is wiser than men: And Godly weakness(the weakness of God) is stronger than are men.
26. Brethren look on your calling how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many of high degree are called:
27. But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world, to confound the wise. And (God) hath chosen the weak things of the world, to confound things which are mighty.
28. And vile things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen yea and things of no reputation, for to bring to nought things of reputation,
29. that no flesh should rejoice in his presence.
30. And unto him pertain ye, in Christ Jesu, which of God is made unto us wisdom, and also righteousness, and sanctifying, and redemption.
31. That according as it is written: he which rejoiceth, should rejoice in the Lord.
