Book 18 : JOB - Chapter 024


Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof


They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge


They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together


Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children


They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked


They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold


They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter


They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor


They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry


Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst


Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them


They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof


The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief


The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face


In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light


For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death


He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards


Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned


The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree


He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow


He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life


Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways


They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn


And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth
