Job 12

KJV 1 And Job answered and said, NIV 1 Then Job replied: KJV 2 No doubt but ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you. NIV 2 “Doubtless you are the only people who matter, and wisdom will die with you! KJV 3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these? NIV 3 But I have a mind as well as you; I am not inferior to you. Who does not know all these things? KJV 4 I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon God, and he answereth him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn. NIV 4 “I have become a laughingstock to my friends, though I called on God and he answered— a mere laughingstock, though righteous and blameless! KJV 5 He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease. NIV 5 Those who are at ease have contempt for misfortune as the fate of those whose feet are slipping. KJV 6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly. NIV 6 The tents of marauders are undisturbed, and those who provoke God are secure— those God has in his hand. KJV 7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: NIV 7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; KJV 8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. NIV 8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. KJV 9 Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? NIV 9 Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? KJV 10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. NIV 10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. KJV 11 Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat? NIV 11 Does not the ear test words as the tongue tastes food? KJV 12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding. NIV 12 Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding? KJV 13 With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding. NIV 13 “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his. KJV 14 Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening. NIV 14 What he tears down cannot be rebuilt; those he imprisons cannot be released. KJV 15 Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth. NIV 15 If he holds back the waters, there is drought; if he lets them loose, they devastate the land. KJV 16 With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his. NIV 16 To him belong strength and insight; both deceived and deceiver are his. KJV 17 He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools. NIV 17 He leads rulers away stripped and makes fools of judges. KJV 18 He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle. NIV 18 He takes off the shackles put on by kings and ties a loincloth around their waist. KJV 19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty. NIV 19 He leads priests away stripped and overthrows officials long established. KJV 20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged. NIV 20 He silences the lips of trusted advisers and takes away the discernment of elders. KJV 21 He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty. NIV 21 He pours contempt on nobles and disarms the mighty. KJV 22 He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death. NIV 22 He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light. KJV 23 He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again. NIV 23 He makes nations great, and destroys them; he enlarges nations, and disperses them. KJV 24 He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way. NIV 24 He deprives the leaders of the earth of their reason; he makes them wander in a trackless waste. KJV 25 They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man. NIV 25 They grope in darkness with no light; he makes them stagger like drunkards.
