Job 31

CSB 1 I have made a covenant with my eyes. How then could I look at a young woman? NIV 1 “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman. CSB 2 For what portion [would I have] from God above, or [what] inheritance from the Almighty on high? NIV 2 For what is our lot from God above, our heritage from the Almighty on high? CSB 3 Doesn't disaster come to the wicked and misfortune to evildoers? NIV 3 Is it not ruin for the wicked, disaster for those who do wrong? CSB 4 Does He not see my ways and number all my steps? NIV 4 Does he not see my ways and count my every step? CSB 5 If I have walked in falsehood or my foot has rushed to deceit, NIV 5 “If I have walked with falsehood or my foot has hurried after deceit— CSB 6 let God weigh me with an accurate balance, and He will recognize my integrity. NIV 6 let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless— CSB 7 If my step has turned from the way, my heart has followed my eyes, or impurity has stained my hands, NIV 7 if my steps have turned from the path, if my heart has been led by my eyes, or if my hands have been defiled, CSB 8 let someone else eat what I have sown, and let my crops be uprooted. NIV 8 then may others eat what I have sown, and may my crops be uprooted. CSB 9 If my heart has been seduced by [my neighbor's] wife or I have lurked at his door, NIV 9 “If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door, CSB 10 let my own wife grind [grain] for another man, and let other men sleep with her. NIV 10 then may my wife grind another man’s grain, and may other men sleep with her. CSB 11 For that would be a disgrace; it would be a crime deserving punishment. NIV 11 For that would have been wicked, a sin to be judged. CSB 12 For it is a fire that consumes down to Abaddon; it would destroy my entire harvest. NIV 12 It is a fire that burns to Destruction ; it would have uprooted my harvest. CSB 13 If I have dismissed the case of my male or female servants when they made a complaint against me, NIV 13 “If I have denied justice to any of my servants, whether male or female, when they had a grievance against me, CSB 14 what could I do when God stands up [to judge]? How should I answer Him when He calls [me] to account? NIV 14 what will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account? CSB 15 Did not the One who made me in the womb also make them? Did not the same God form us both in the womb? NIV 15 Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers? CSB 16 If I have refused the wishes of the poor or let the widow's eyes go blind, NIV 16 “If I have denied the desires of the poor or let the eyes of the widow grow weary, CSB 17 if I have eaten my few crumbs alone without letting the fatherless eat any of it- NIV 17 if I have kept my bread to myself, not sharing it with the fatherless— CSB 18 for from my youth, I raised him as [his] father, and since the day I was born I guided the widow- NIV 18 but from my youth I reared them as a father would, and from my birth I guided the widow— CSB 19 if I have seen anyone dying for lack of clothing or a needy person without a cloak, NIV 19 if I have seen anyone perishing for lack of clothing, or the needy without garments, CSB 20 if he did not bless me while warming himself with the fleece from my sheep, NIV 20 and their hearts did not bless me for warming them with the fleece from my sheep, CSB 21 if I ever cast my vote against a fatherless child when I saw that I had support in the [city] gate, NIV 21 if I have raised my hand against the fatherless, knowing that I had influence in court, CSB 22 then let my shoulder blade fall from my back, and my arm be pulled from its socket. NIV 22 then let my arm fall from the shoulder, let it be broken off at the joint. CSB 23 For disaster from God terrifies me, and because of His majesty I could not do [these things]. NIV 23 For I dreaded destruction from God, and for fear of his splendor I could not do such things. CSB 24 If I placed my confidence in gold or called fine gold my trust, NIV 24 “If I have put my trust in gold or said to pure gold, ‘You are my security,’ CSB 25 if I have rejoiced because my wealth is great or because my own hand has acquired [so] much, NIV 25 if I have rejoiced over my great wealth, the fortune my hands had gained, CSB 26 if I have gazed at the sun when it was shining or at the moon moving in splendor, NIV 26 if I have regarded the sun in its radiance or the moon moving in splendor, CSB 27 so that my heart was secretly enticed and I threw them a kiss, NIV 27 so that my heart was secretly enticed and my hand offered them a kiss of homage, CSB 28 this would also be a crime deserving punishment, for I would have denied God above. NIV 28 then these also would be sins to be judged, for I would have been unfaithful to God on high. CSB 29 Have I rejoiced over my enemy's distress, or become excited when trouble came his way? NIV 29 “If I have rejoiced at my enemy’s misfortune or gloated over the trouble that came to him— CSB 30 I have not allowed my mouth to sin by asking for his life with a curse. NIV 30 I have not allowed my mouth to sin by invoking a curse against their life— CSB 31 Haven't the members of my household said, "Who is there who has not had enough to eat at Job's table?" NIV 31 if those of my household have never said, ‘Who has not been filled with Job’s meat?’— CSB 32 No stranger had to spend the night on the street, for I opened my door to the traveler. NIV 32 but no stranger had to spend the night in the street, for my door was always open to the traveler— CSB 33 Have I covered my transgressions as others do by hiding my guilt in my heart, NIV 33 if I have concealed my sin as people do,by hiding my guilt in my heart CSB 34 because I greatly feared the crowds, and the contempt of the clans terrified me, so I grew silent and would not go outside? NIV 34 because I so feared the crowd and so dreaded the contempt of the clans that I kept silent and would not go outside— CSB 35 If only I had someone to hear my [case]! Here is my signature; let the Almighty answer me. Let my Opponent compose [His] indictment. NIV 35 (“Oh, that I had someone to hear me! I sign now my defense—let the Almighty answer me; let my accuser put his indictment in writing. CSB 36 I would surely carry it on my shoulder and wear it like a crown. NIV 36 Surely I would wear it on my shoulder, I would put it on like a crown. CSB 37 I would give Him an account of all my steps; I would approach Him like a prince. NIV 37 I would give him an account of my every step; I would present it to him as to a ruler.)— CSB 38 If my land cries out against me and its furrows join in weeping, NIV 38 “if my land cries out against me and all its furrows are wet with tears, CSB 39 if I have consumed its produce without payment or shown contempt for its tenants, NIV 39 if I have devoured its yield without payment or broken the spirit of its tenants, CSB 40 then let thorns grow instead of wheat and stinkweed instead of barley. The words of Job are concluded. NIV 40 then let briers come up instead of wheat and stinkweed instead of barley.” The words of Job are ended.
