Job 12:12-25 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
12 Is not wisdom found among the aged?1 Does not long life bring understanding?2 13 "To God belong wisdom3 and power;4 counsel and understanding are his.5 14 What he tears down6 cannot be rebuilt;7 the man he imprisons cannot be released.8 15 If he holds back the waters,9 there is drought;10 if he lets them loose, they devastate the land.11 16 To him belong strength and victory;12 both deceived and deceiver are his.13 17 He leads counselors away stripped14 and makes fools of judges.15 18 He takes off the shackles16 put on by kings and ties a loinclotha around their waist.17 19 He leads priests away stripped18 and overthrows men long established.19 20 He silences the lips of trusted advisers and takes away the discernment of elders.20 21 He pours contempt on nobles21 and disarms the mighty.22 22 He reveals the deep things of darkness23 and brings deep shadows24 into the light.25 23 He makes nations great, and destroys them;26 he enlarges nations,27 and disperses them.28 24 He deprives the leaders of the earth of their reason;29 he sends them wandering through a trackless waste.30 25 They grope in darkness with no light;31 he makes them stagger like drunkards.32
