Job 27 (WEBP)

[1] Job again took up his parable, and said,
[2] “As God lives, who has taken away my right, the Almighty, who has made my soul bitter
[3] (for the length of my life is still in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils);
[4] surely my lips will not speak unrighteousness, neither will my tongue utter deceit.
[5] Far be it from me that I should justify you. Until I die I will not put away my integrity from me.
[6] I hold fast to my righteousness, and will not let it go. My heart will not reproach me so long as I live.
[7] “Let my enemy be as the wicked. Let him who rises up against me be as the unrighteous.
[8] For what is the hope of the godless, when he is cut off, when God takes away his life?
[9] Will God hear his cry when trouble comes on him?
[10] Will he delight himself in the Almighty, and call on God at all times?
[11] I will teach you about the hand of God. I will not conceal that which is with the Almighty.
[12] Behold, all of you have seen it yourselves; why then have you become altogether vain?
[13] “This is the portion of a wicked man with God, the heritage of oppressors, which they receive from the Almighty.
[14] If his children are multiplied, it is for the sword. His offspring will not be satisfied with bread.
[15] Those who remain of him will be buried in death. His widows will make no lamentation.
[16] Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare clothing as the clay;
[17] he may prepare it, but the just will put it on, and the innocent will divide the silver.
[18] He builds his house as the moth, as a booth which the watchman makes.
[19] He lies down rich, but he will not do so again. He opens his eyes, and he is not.
[20] Terrors overtake him like waters. A storm steals him away in the night.
[21] The east wind carries him away, and he departs. It sweeps him out of his place.
[22] For it hurls at him, and does not spare, as he flees away from his hand.
[23] Men will clap their hands at him, and will hiss him out of his place.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 27 (YLT)

[1] And Job addeth to lift up his simile, and saith:-
[2] God liveth! He turned aside my judgment, And the Mighty-He made my soul bitter.
[3] For all the while my breath is in me, And the spirit of God in my nostrils.
[4] My lips do not speak perverseness, And my tongue doth not utter deceit.
[5] Pollution to me-if I justify you, Till I expire I turn not aside mine integrity from me.
[6] On my righteousness I have laid hold, And I do not let it go, My heart doth not reproach me while I live.
[7] As the wicked is my enemy, And my withstander as the perverse.
[8] For what is the hope of the profane, When He doth cut off? When God doth cast off his soul?
[9] His cry doth God hear, When distress cometh on him?
[10] On the Mighty doth he delight himself? Call God at all times?
[11] I shew you by the hand of God, That which is with the Mighty I hide not.
[12] Lo, ye-all of you-have seen, And why is this-ye are altogether vain?
[13] This is the portion of wicked man with God, And the inheritance of terrible ones From the Mighty they receive.
[14] If his sons multiply-for them is a sword. And his offspring are not satisfied with bread.
[15] His remnant in death are buried, And his widows do not weep.
[16] If he heap up as dust silver, And as clay prepare clothing,
[17] He prepareth-and the righteous putteth it on, And the silver the innocent doth apportion.
[18] He hath built as a moth his house, And as a booth a watchman hath made.
[19] Rich he lieth down, and he is not gathered, His eyes he hath opened, and he is not.
[20] Overtake him as waters do terrors, By night stolen him away hath a whirlwind.
[21] Take him up doth an east wind, and he goeth, And it frighteneth him from his place,
[22] And it casteth at him, and doth not spare, From its hand he diligently fleeth.
[23] It clappeth at him its hands, And it hisseth at him from his place.
