Job 31

NLT 1 “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look with lust at a young woman. NIV 1 “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman. NLT 2 For what has God above chosen for us? What is our inheritance from the Almighty on high? NIV 2 For what is our lot from God above, our heritage from the Almighty on high? NLT 3 Isn’t it calamity for the wicked and misfortune for those who do evil? NIV 3 Is it not ruin for the wicked, disaster for those who do wrong? NLT 4 Doesn’t he see everything I do and every step I take? NIV 4 Does he not see my ways and count my every step? NLT 5 “Have I lied to anyone or deceived anyone? NIV 5 “If I have walked with falsehood or my foot has hurried after deceit— NLT 6 Let God weigh me on the scales of justice, for he knows my integrity. NIV 6 let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless— NLT 7 If I have strayed from his pathway, or if my heart has lusted for what my eyes have seen, or if I am guilty of any other sin, 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, NLT 8 then let someone else eat the crops I have planted. Let all that I have planted be uprooted. NIV 8 then may others eat what I have sown, and may my crops be uprooted. NLT 9 “If my heart has been seduced by a woman, or if I have lusted for my neighbor’s wife, NIV 9 “If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door, NLT 10 then let my wife serve another man; let other men sleep with her. NIV 10 then may my wife grind another man’s grain, and may other men sleep with her. NLT 11 For lust is a shameful sin, a crime that should be punished. NIV 11 For that would have been wicked, a sin to be judged. NLT 12 It is a fire that burns all the way to hell. It would wipe out everything I own. NIV 12 It is a fire that burns to Destruction ; it would have uprooted my harvest. NLT 13 “If I have been unfair to my male or female servants when they brought their complaints to me, NIV 13 “If I have denied justice to any of my servants, whether male or female, when they had a grievance against me, NLT 14 how could I face God? What could I say when he questioned me? NIV 14 what will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account? NLT 15 For God created both me and my servants. He created 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? NLT 16 “Have I refused to help the poor, or crushed the hopes of widows? NIV 16 “If I have denied the desires of the poor or let the eyes of the widow grow weary, NLT 17 Have I been stingy with my food and refused to share it with orphans? NIV 17 if I have kept my bread to myself, not sharing it with the fatherless— NLT 18 No, from childhood I have cared for orphans like a father, and all my life I have cared for widows. NIV 18 but from my youth I reared them as a father would, and from my birth I guided the widow— NLT 19 Whenever I saw the homeless without clothes and the needy with nothing to wear, NIV 19 if I have seen anyone perishing for lack of clothing, or the needy without garments, NLT 20 did they not praise me for providing wool clothing to keep them warm? NIV 20 and their hearts did not bless me for warming them with the fleece from my sheep, NLT 21 “If I raised my hand against an orphan, knowing the judges would take my side, NIV 21 if I have raised my hand against the fatherless, knowing that I had influence in court, NLT 22 then let my shoulder be wrenched out of place! Let my arm be torn from its socket! NIV 22 then let my arm fall from the shoulder, let it be broken off at the joint. NLT 23 That would be better than facing God’s judgment. For if the majesty of God opposes me, what hope is there? NIV 23 For I dreaded destruction from God, and for fear of his splendor I could not do such things. NLT 24 “Have I put my trust in money or felt secure because of my gold? NIV 24 “If I have put my trust in gold or said to pure gold, ‘You are my security,’ NLT 25 Have I gloated about my wealth and all that I own? NIV 25 if I have rejoiced over my great wealth, the fortune my hands had gained, NLT 26 “Have I looked at the sun shining in the skies, or the moon walking down its silver pathway, NIV 26 if I have regarded the sun in its radiance or the moon moving in splendor, NLT 27 and been secretly enticed in my heart to throw kisses at them in worship? NIV 27 so that my heart was secretly enticed and my hand offered them a kiss of homage, NLT 28 If so, I should be punished by the judges, for it would mean I had denied the God of heaven. NIV 28 then these also would be sins to be judged, for I would have been unfaithful to God on high. NLT 29 “Have I ever rejoiced when disaster struck my enemies, or become excited when harm came their way? NIV 29 “If I have rejoiced at my enemy’s misfortune or gloated over the trouble that came to him— NLT 30 No, I have never sinned by cursing anyone or by asking for revenge. NIV 30 I have not allowed my mouth to sin by invoking a curse against their life— NLT 31 “My servants have never said, ‘He let others go hungry.’ NIV 31 if those of my household have never said, ‘Who has not been filled with Job’s meat?’— NLT 32 I have never turned away a stranger but have opened my doors to everyone. NIV 32 but no stranger had to spend the night in the street, for my door was always open to the traveler— NLT 33 “Have I tried to hide my sins like other people do, concealing my guilt in my heart? NIV 33 if I have concealed my sin as people do,by hiding my guilt in my heart NLT 34 Have I feared the crowd or the contempt of the masses, so that I kept quiet and stayed indoors? 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— NLT 35 “If only someone would listen to me! Look, I will sign my name to my defense. Let the Almighty answer me. Let my accuser write out the charges against me. 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. NLT 36 I would face the accusation proudly. I would wear it like a crown. NIV 36 Surely I would wear it on my shoulder, I would put it on like a crown. NLT 37 For I would tell him exactly what I have done. I would come before 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.)— NLT 38 “If my land accuses me and all its furrows cry out together, NIV 38 “if my land cries out against me and all its furrows are wet with tears, NLT 39 or if I have stolen its crops or murdered its owners, NIV 39 if I have devoured its yield without payment or broken the spirit of its tenants, NLT 40 then let thistles grow on that land instead of wheat, and weeds instead of barley.” Job’s words are ended. NIV 40 then let briers come up instead of wheat and stinkweed instead of barley.” The words of Job are ended.
