Job 24

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Why is not hidden from the Almighty times and know him not see his days?
2 Some remove the landmarks, steal herds and pasture [at].
3 Do orphaned drive away the ass, they take the widow ox for a pledge;
4 the poor out of the way, all the earth hide themselves.
5 Here they are [as] wild asses in the desert go forth to their work, rising early for prey; Steppe [gives] food for them and for their children;
6 reap them on the field is not his, and gather the vintage of the wicked;
7 naked roost without cover and without clothing in cold;
8 get wet from mountain rains and without shelter, huddled in a rock;
9 reject sucking fatherless and the poor take a pledge;
10 cause him to go naked without clothing, and hungry feeding ears;
eleven between the walls squeezed olive oil, treading the grapes and crave.
12 In the city people groan, and the soul of murdered screams, and God does not prohibit it.

13 There are enemies of the world, know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
14 With the dawn rises killer kills the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.
15 The eye of the adulterer waits for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me --and closes face.
16 In the dark they dig through houses, which day they had marked for themselves; not know the world.
17 For them the morning - the shadow of death, because they are familiar with the terrors of the shadow of death.

18 Easy so on the surface, cursed part of it on the ground, and does not look it in the way of the vineyards.
19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave - sinners.
20 Womb shall forget him [the mother]; let regales them worm; Do not let remains of his memory; like a tree, wickedness shall be broken,
21 which inhibits childless, not born, and the widow does not make good.
22 He is keen on own power; He gets up and no one is sure of life.
23 And He gives him [all] for security, and it [the fact] is based, and his eyes are upon their ways.
24 Climb high, --and here, do not have them; fall and die like everyone else, and as the tops of ears are cut off.
25 If it is not, --kto me a liar, and my speech nothing worth?
