There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth and [there is] that withholdeth more than is meet, but [it tendeth] to poverty. Proverbs 11.24

Job 9


1
Then Job answered and said,
2
I know [it is] so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?
3
If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.
4
[He is] wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened [himself] against him, and hath prospered?
5
Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.
6
Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.
7
Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not and sealeth up the stars.
8
Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.
9
Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.
10
Which doeth great things past finding out yea, and wonders without number.
11
Lo, he goeth by me, and I see [him] not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.
12
Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou?
13
[If] God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.
14
How much less shall I answer him, [and] choose out my words [to reason] with him?
15
Whom, though I were righteous, [yet] would I not answer, [but] I would make supplication to my judge.
16
If I had called, and he had answered me [yet] would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.
17
For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.
18
He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.
19
If [I speak] of strength, lo, [he is] strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time [to plead]?
20
If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: [if I say], I [am] perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
21
[Though] I [were] perfect, [yet] would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.
22
This [is] one [thing], therefore I said [it], He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.
23
If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.
24
The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof if not, where, [and] who [is] he?
25
Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.
26
They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle [that] hasteth to the prey.
27
If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort [myself]:
28
I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.
29
[If] I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?
30
If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean
31
Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me.
32
For [he is] not a man, as I [am, that] I should answer him, [and] we should come together in judgment.
33
Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, [that] might lay his hand upon us both.
34
Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me:
35
[Then] would I speak, and not fear him but [it is] not so with me.

Job 10


1
My soul is weary of my life I will leave my complaint upon myself I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
2
I will say unto God, Do not condemn me shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.
3
[Is it] good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
4
Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?
5
[Are] thy days as the days of man? [are] thy years as man's days,
6
That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?
7
Thou knowest that I am not wicked and [there is] none that can deliver out of thine hand.
8
Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about yet thou dost destroy me.
9
Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay and wilt thou bring me into dust again?
10
Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?
11
Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.
12
Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.
13
And these [things] hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this [is] with thee.
14
If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.
15
If I be wicked, woe unto me and [if] I be righteous, [yet] will I not lift up my head. [I am] full of confusion therefore see thou mine affliction
16
For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
17
Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me changes and war [are] against me.
18
Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!
19
I should have been as though I had not been I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.
20
[Are] not my days few? cease [then, and] let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,
21
Before I go [whence] I shall not return, [even] to the land of darkness and the shadow of death
22
A land of darkness, as darkness [itself and] of the shadow of death, without any order, and [where] the light [is] as darkness.

Job 11


1
Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
2
Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified?
3
Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
4
For thou hast said, My doctrine [is] pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.
5
But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee
6
And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that [they are] double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee [less] than thine iniquity [deserveth].
7
Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?
8
[It is] as high as heaven what canst thou do? deeper than hell what canst thou know?
9
The measure thereof [is] longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
10
If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?
11
For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also will he not then consider [it]?
12
For vain man would be wise, though man be born [like] a wild ass's colt.
13
If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him
14
If iniquity [be] in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
15
For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:
16
Because thou shalt forget [thy] misery, [and] remember [it] as waters [that] pass away:
17
And [thine] age shall be clearer than the noonday thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
18
And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope yea, thou shalt dig [about thee, and] thou shalt take thy rest in safety.
19
Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make [thee] afraid yea, many shall make suit unto thee.
20
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope [shall be as] the giving up of the ghost.

2 Thessalonians 2


1
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him,
2
That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition
4
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6
And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way.
8
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9
[Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14
Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15
Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16
Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given [us] everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
17
Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
