Job 35:1-16
1. Eliu spake moreover, and said:
2. Thinkest thou it right, that thou saidst: I am righteous before God?
3. Seeing thou sayest so, how doest thou know it? What thing hast thou more excellent than I, that I am a sinner?(than I that am a sinner?)
4. Therefore will I give answer unto thee and thy friends:
5. Look unto the heaven, and behold it: consider the clouds, how they are higher than thou.
6. If thou sinnest, what doest thou unto him? If thine offenses be many, how gettest thou his favour?
7. If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? Or what receiveth he of thy hands?
8. Of such an ungodly person as thou, and of the son of man that is righteous as thou pretendest to be:
9. there is a great cry and complaint made by them that are oppressed with violence, yea every man complaineth upon the cruel arm of tyrants.
10. For such one never sayeth: Where is God that made me? and that shineth upon us, that we might praise him in the night?
11. Which giveth us more understanding than he doth the beasts of the earth, and teacheth us more than the fouls of heaven.
12. If any such complain, no man giveth answer, and that because of the wickedness of proud tyrants.
13. But if a man call upon God, doth not he hear him? Doth not the almighty accept his cry?
14. When thou speakest then, should not he pardon thee, if thou open thyself before him, and put thy trust in him?
15. Then useth he no violence in his wrath, neither hath he pleasure in curious and deep inquisitions.
16. Therefore hath Job opened his mouth but in vain, and foolishly hath he made so many words.

Job 36:1-33
1. Eliu proceeded forth in his talking and said:
2. Hold thee still a little, and I shall shew thee, what I have yet to speak on God's behalf.
3. I will open unto thee yet more of mine understanding, and prove my maker righteousness.
4. True are my words, and no lie: and the knowledge wherewithall I argue against thee, is perfect.
5. Behold, God casteth not away the mighty, for he himself is mighty in power and wisdom.
6. As for the ungodly, he preserveth them not, but helpeth the poor to their right.
7. He turneth not his eyes away from the righteous, he setteth up kings in their throne, and confirmeth them, so that they alway sit therein.
8. But if they be laid in prison and chains, or bound with the bonds of poverty:
9. then sheweth he them their works and deeds and the sins where with they have used cruel violence.
10. He with punishing and nurturing of them, roundeth(rowneth) them in the ears, warneth them to leave off from their wickedness, and to amend.
11. If they now will take heed and be obedient, they shall wear out their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure and joy.
12. But if they will not obey, they shall go thorow the sword, and perish or ever they be aware.(awarre)
13. As for such as be fained, dissemblers and hypocrites, they heap up wrath for themselves: for they call not upon him, though they be his prisoners.
14. Thus their soul perisheth in foolishness, and their life with the condemned.
15. The poor delivereth he out of his straitness, and comforteth such as be in necessity and trouble.
16. Even so shall he keep thee (if thou wilt be content) from the bottomless pit that is beneath: and if thou wilt hold the quiet, he shall fill thy table with plenteousness.
17. Nevertheless thou hast condemned the judgement of the ungodly, yea even such a judgment and sentence shalt thou suffer.
18. For then shall not thy cause be stilled with cruelty, nor pacified with many gifts.
19. Hath God ordained(ordened) then, that the glorious life of thee, and all such mighty men should not be put down?
20. Prolong not thou the time, till there come a night for thee, to set other people in thy stead.
21. But beware that thou turn not aside to wickedness and sin, which hither to thou hast chosen more than meekness.
22. Behold, God is of a mighty high power: Where is there such a guide and law giver as he?
23. Who will reprove him of his way? Who will say unto him: thou hast done wrong?
24. O consider how great and excellent his works be, whom all men love and praise:
25. yea(yee) wonder at him, and yet they see him but afar off.
26. Behold, so great is God, that he passeth our knowledge, neither are we able to come to the experience of his years.
27. He turneth the water to small drops, he driveth his clouds
28. together for to rain, so that they pour down and drop upon men.
29. He can spread out the clouds (a covering of his tabernacle)
30. and cause his light to shine upon them, and to cover the bottom of the sea.
31. By these things governeth he his people, and giveth them abundance of meat.
32. In the turning of a hand he hideth the light, and at his commandment it cometh again.
33. The rising up thereof sheweth he to his friends and to the cattle.

Psalms 99:1-9
1. The LORD is king, be the people never so unpatient: he sitteth upon the Cherubins, be the earth never so unquiet.
2. The LORD is great in Sion, and high above all people.
3. O let men give thanks unto thy great and wonderful name, for it is holy.
4. The king's power loveth judgment, thou preparest equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
5. O magnify the LORD our God, fall down before his footstool, for he is holy.
6. Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among such as call upon his name: these called upon the LORD, and he heard them.
7. He spake unto them out of the cloudy pillar, for they kept his testimonies, and the law that he gave them.
8. Thou heardest them (O LORD our God) thou forgavest them O God, and punishedst their own inventions.
9. O magnify the LORD our God, and worship him upon his holy hill, for the LORD our God is holy.

Proverbs 23:22-25
22. Give ear unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
23. Labour for to get the truth: sell not away wisdom, nurture and understanding,
24. for a righteous father is marvelous glad of a wise son, and delighteth in him,
25. so shall thy father be glad, and thy mother that bare thee, shall rejoice.

1 Corinthians 4:1-21
1. Let men this wise esteem us, even as the ministers of Christ, and disposers(stewards) of the secrets of God.
2. Furthermore it is required of the disposers(stewards) that they be found faithful.
3. With me is it but a very small thing, that I should be judged of you, either of man's day. No I judge not mine own self.
4. I know nought by myself: yet am I not thereby justified. It is the Lord that judgeth me.
5. Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, which will lighten things that are hid in darkness: and open the counsels of the hearts. And then shall every man have praise of God.
6. These things brethren I have described in mine own person, and Apollos: for your sakes, that ye might learn by us that no man count of himself beyond that which is above written: that one swell not against another for any man's cause.
7. For who preferreth thee? What hast thou, that thou hast not received? if thou have received it: why rejoicest(boastest) thou as though thou hadst(haddest) not received it?
8. Now ye are full: now ye are made rich: ye reign as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we might reign with you.
9. Me thinketh that God hath shewed(set forth) us which are apostles, for the hindmost(lowest) of all, as it were men appointed to death. For we are a gazingstock unto the world, and to the angels, and to men,
10. we are fools for Christ's(Christes) sake, and ye are wise thorow Christ: we are weak, and ye are strong. Ye are honorable, and we are despised.
11. Even unto this day we hunger and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted with fists, and have no certain dwelling place,
12. and labour working with our own hands. We are reviled, and yet we bless. We are persecuted, and suffer it.
13. We are evil spoken of, and we pray. We are made as it were the filthiness(become as it were very outsweepings) of the world, the offscouring of all things, even unto this time.
14. I write not these things to shame you: but as my beloved sons(dear children) I warn you.
15. For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ: yet have ye not many fathers. In Christ Jesu, I have begotten you thorow the gospel.(gospell)
16. Wherefore I desire(exhort) you to counterfeit(follow) me. (as I follow Christ)
17. For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, which is my dear son, and faithful in the Lord, which shall put you in remembrance of my ways which I have in Christ, even as I teach everywhere in all congregations.
18. Some swell(are puft up) as though I would come no more at you:
19. but I will come to you shortly, if God will, and will know, not the words of them which swell,(that are puft up) but the power.
20. For the Kingdom of God is not in words, but in power.
21. What will ye? Shall I come unto you with a rod, or else in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
