Job 1:1-22
1. A man there hath been in the land of Uz -- Job his name -- and that man hath been perfect and upright -- both fearing God, and turning aside from evil.
2. And there are borne to him seven sons and three daughters,
3. and his substance is seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred pairs of oxen, and five hundred she-asses, and a service very abundant; and that man is greater than any of the sons of the east.
4. And his sons have gone and made a banquet -- the house of each [in] his day -- and have sent and called to their three sisters to eat and to drink with them;
5. and it cometh to pass, when they have gone round the days of the banquet, that Job doth send and sanctify them, and hath risen early in the morning, and caused to ascend burnt-offerings -- the number of them all -- for Job said, `Perhaps my sons have sinned, yet blessed God in their heart.` Thus doth Job all the days.
6. And the day is, that sons of God come in to station themselves by Jehovah, and there doth come also the Adversary in their midst.
7. And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, `Whence comest thou?` And the Adversary answereth Jehovah and saith, `From going to and fro in the land, and from walking up and down on it.`
8. And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, `Hast thou set thy heart against My servant Job because there is none like him in the land, a man perfect and upright, fearing God, and turning aside from evil?`
9. And the Adversary answereth Jehovah and saith, `For nought is Job fearing God?
10. Hast not Thou made a hedge for him, and for his house, and for all that he hath -- round about?
11. The work of his hands Thou hast blessed, and his substance hath spread in the land, and yet, put forth, I pray Thee, Thy hand, and strike against anything that he hath -- if not: to Thy face he doth bless Thee!`
12. And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, `Lo, all that he hath [is] in thy hand, only unto him put not forth thy hand.` And the Adversary goeth out from the presence of Jehovah.
13. And the day is, that his sons and his daughters are eating, and drinking wine, in the house of their brother, the first-born.
14. And a messenger hath come in unto Job and saith, `The oxen have been plowing, and the she-asses feeding by their sides,
15. and Sheba doth fall, and take them, and the young men they have smitten by the mouth of the sword, and I am escaped -- only I alone -- to declare [it] to thee.`
16. While this [one] is speaking another also hath come and saith, `Fire of God hath fallen from the heavens, and burneth among the flock, and among the young men, and consumeth them, and I am escaped -- only I alone -- to declare [it] to thee.`
17. While this [one] is speaking another also hath come and saith, `Chaldeans made three heads, and rush on the camels, and take them, and the young men they have smitten by the mouth of the sword, and I am escaped -- only I alone -- to declare [it] to thee.`
18. While this [one] is speaking another also hath come and saith, `Thy sons and thy daughters are eating, and drinking wine, in the house of their brother, the first-born.
19. And lo, a great wind hath come from over the wilderness, and striketh against the four corners of the house, and it falleth on the young men, and they are dead, and I am escaped -- only I alone -- to declare [it] to thee.`
20. And Job riseth, and rendeth his robe, and shaveth his head, and falleth to the earth, and doth obeisance,
21. and he saith, `Naked came I forth from the womb of my mother, and naked I turn back thither: Jehovah hath given and Jehovah hath taken: let the name of Jehovah be blessed.`
22. In all this Job hath not sinned, nor given folly to God.

Job 2:1-13
1. And the day is, that sons of God come in to station themselves by Jehovah, and there doth come also the Adversary in their midst to station himself by Jehovah.
2. And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, `Whence camest thou?` And the Adversary answereth Jehovah and saith, `From going to and fro in the land, and from walking up and down in it.`
3. And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, `Hast thou set thy heart unto My servant Job because there is none like him in the land, a man perfect and upright, fearing God and turning aside from evil? and still he is keeping hold on his integrity, and thou dost move Me against him to swallow him up for nought!`
4. And the Adversary answereth Jehovah and saith, `A skin for a skin, and all that a man hath he doth give for his life.
5. Yet, put forth, I pray Thee, Thy hand, and strike unto his bone and unto his flesh -- if not: unto Thy face he doth bless Thee!`
6. And Jehovah saith unto the Adversary, `Lo, he [is] in thy hand; only his life take care of.`
7. And the Adversary goeth forth from the presence of Jehovah, and smiteth Job with a sore ulcer from the sole of his foot unto his crown.
8. And he taketh to him a potsherd to scrape himself with it, and he is sitting in the midst of the ashes.
9. And his wife saith to him, `Still thou art keeping hold on thine integrity: bless God and die.`
10. And he saith unto her, `As one of the foolish women speaketh, thou speakest; yea, the good we receive from God, and the evil we do not receive.` In all this Job hath not sinned with his lips.
11. And three of the friends of Job hear of all this evil that hath come upon him, and they come in each from his place -- Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite -- and they are met together to come in to bemoan him, and to comfort him;
12. and they lift up their eyes from afar and have not discerned him, and they lift up their voice and weep, and rend each his robe, and sprinkle dust on their heads -- heavenward.
13. And they sit with him on the earth seven days and seven nights, and there is none speaking unto him a word when they have seen that the pain hath been very great.

Psalms 91:7-13
7. There fall at thy side a thousand, And a myriad at thy right hand, Unto thee it cometh not nigh.
8. But with thine eyes thou lookest, And the reward of the wicked thou seest,
9. (For Thou, O Jehovah, [art] my refuge,) The Most High thou madest thy habitation.
10. Evil happeneth not unto thee, And a plague cometh not near thy tent,
11. For His messengers He chargeth for thee, To keep thee in all thy ways,
12. On the hands they bear thee up, Lest thou smite against a stone thy foot.
13. On lion and asp thou treadest, Thou trampest young lion and dragon.

Proverbs 22:13-14
13. The slothful hath said, `A lion [is] without, In the midst of the broad places I am slain.`
14. A deep pit [is] the mouth of strange women, The abhorred of Jehovah falleth there.

Romans 7:1-25
1. Are ye ignorant, brethren -- for to those knowing law I speak -- that the law hath lordship over the man as long as he liveth?
2. for the married woman to the living husband hath been bound by law, and if the husband may die, she hath been free from the law of the husband;
3. so, then, the husband being alive, an adulteress she shall be called if she may become another man`s; and if the husband may die, she is free from the law, so as not to be an adulteress, having become another man`s.
4. So that, my brethren, ye also were made dead to the law through the body of the Christ, for your becoming another`s, who out of the dead was raised up, that we might bear fruit to God;
5. for when we were in the flesh, the passions of the sins, that [are] through the law, were working in our members, to bear fruit to the death;
6. and now we have ceased from the law, that being dead in which we were held, so that we may serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of letter.
7. What, then, shall we say? the law [is] sin? let it not be! but the sin I did not know except through law, for also the covetousness I had not known if the law had not said:
8. `Thou shalt not covet;` and the sin having received an opportunity, through the command, did work in me all covetousness -- for apart from law sin is dead.
9. And I was alive apart from law once, and the command having come, the sin revived, and I died;
10. and the command that [is] for life, this was found by me for death;
11. for the sin, having received an opportunity, through the command, did deceive me, and through it did slay [me];
12. so that the law, indeed, [is] holy, and the command holy, and righteous, and good.
13. That which is good then, to me hath it become death? let it not be! but the sin, that it might appear sin, through the good, working death to me, that the sin might become exceeding sinful through the command,
14. for we have known that the law is spiritual, and I am fleshly, sold by the sin;
15. for that which I work, I do not acknowledge; for not what I will, this I practise, but what I hate, this I do.
16. And if what I do not will, this I do, I consent to the law that [it is] good,
17. and now it is no longer I that work it, but the sin dwelling in me,
18. for I have known that there doth not dwell in me, that is, in my flesh, good: for to will is present with me, and to work that which is right I do not find,
19. for the good that I will, I do not; but the evil that I do not will, this I practise.
20. And if what I do not will, this I do, it is no longer I that work it, but the sin that is dwelling in me.
21. I find, then, the law, that when I desire to do what is right, with me the evil is present,
22. for I delight in the law of God according to the inward man,
23. and I behold another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of the sin that [is] in my members.
24. A wretched man I [am]! who shall deliver me out of the body of this death?
25. I thank God -- through Jesus Christ our Lord; so then, I myself indeed with the mind do serve the law of God, and with the flesh, the law of sin.
