Job 8 / KJV Bible

1. Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
2. How long wilt thou speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind?
3. Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
4. If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;
5. If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;
6. If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
7. Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
8. For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
9. (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)
10. Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?
11. Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?
12. Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.
13. So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:
14. Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.
15. He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
16. He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.
17. His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones.
18. If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee.
19. Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.
20. Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:
21. Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.
22. They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.
Job 9 / KJV Bible

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 / KJV Bible

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 inquirest 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 / KJV Bible

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.
Acts 14 / KJV Bible

1. And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.
2. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil affected against the brethren.
3. Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

7. And there they preached the gospel.
8. And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked:

10. Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.

12. And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.
13. Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.

15. And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:
16. Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
17. Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
18. And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.
19. And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.
20. Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.
21. And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,

14. Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.
15. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,

27. We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell you the same things by mouth.
28. For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
