Job 31

YLT 1 A covenant I made for mine eyes, And what -- do I attend to a virgin? NIV 1 “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman. YLT 2 And what [is] the portion of God from above? And the inheritance of the Mighty from the heights? NIV 2 For what is our lot from God above, our heritage from the Almighty on high? YLT 3 Is not calamity to the perverse? And strangeness to workers of iniquity? NIV 3 Is it not ruin for the wicked, disaster for those who do wrong? YLT 4 Doth not He see my ways, And all my steps number? NIV 4 Does he not see my ways and count my every step? YLT 5 If I have walked with vanity, And my foot doth hasten to deceit, NIV 5 “If I have walked with falsehood or my foot has hurried after deceit— YLT 6 He doth weigh me in righteous balances, And God doth know my integrity. NIV 6 let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless— YLT 7 If my step doth turn aside from the way, And after mine eyes hath my heart gone, And to my hands cleaved hath blemish, 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, YLT 8 Let me sow -- and another eat, And my products let be rooted out. NIV 8 then may others eat what I have sown, and may my crops be uprooted. YLT 9 If my heart hath been enticed by woman, And by the opening of my neighbour I laid wait, NIV 9 “If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door, YLT 10 Grind to another let my wife, And over her let others bend. NIV 10 then may my wife grind another man’s grain, and may other men sleep with her. YLT 11 For it [is] a wicked thing, and a judicial iniquity; NIV 11 For that would have been wicked, a sin to be judged. YLT 12 For a fire it [is], to destruction it consumeth, And among all mine increase doth take root, NIV 12 It is a fire that burns to Destruction ; it would have uprooted my harvest. YLT 13 If I despise the cause of my man-servant, And of my handmaid, In their contending with me, NIV 13 “If I have denied justice to any of my servants, whether male or female, when they had a grievance against me, YLT 14 Then what do I do when God ariseth? And when He doth inspect, What do I answer Him? NIV 14 what will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account? YLT 15 Did not He that made me in the womb make him? Yea, prepare us in the womb doth One. NIV 15 Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers? YLT 16 If I withhold from pleasure the poor, And the eyes of the widow do consume, NIV 16 “If I have denied the desires of the poor or let the eyes of the widow grow weary, YLT 17 And I do eat my morsel by myself, And the orphan hath not eat of it, NIV 17 if I have kept my bread to myself, not sharing it with the fatherless— YLT 18 (But from my youth He grew up with me as [with] a father, And from the belly of my mother I am led.) NIV 18 but from my youth I reared them as a father would, and from my birth I guided the widow— YLT 19 If I see [any] perishing without clothing, And there is no covering to the needy, NIV 19 if I have seen anyone perishing for lack of clothing, or the needy without garments, YLT 20 If his loins have not blessed me, And from the fleece of my sheep He doth not warm himself, NIV 20 and their hearts did not bless me for warming them with the fleece from my sheep, YLT 21 If I have waved at the fatherless my hand, When I see in [him] the gate of my court, NIV 21 if I have raised my hand against the fatherless, knowing that I had influence in court, YLT 22 My shoulder from its blade let fall, And mine arm from the bone be broken. NIV 22 then let my arm fall from the shoulder, let it be broken off at the joint. YLT 23 For a dread unto me [is] calamity [from] God, And because of His excellency I am not able. NIV 23 For I dreaded destruction from God, and for fear of his splendor I could not do such things. YLT 24 If I have made gold my confidence, And to the pure gold have said, `My trust,' NIV 24 “If I have put my trust in gold or said to pure gold, ‘You are my security,’ YLT 25 If I rejoice because great [is] my wealth, And because abundance hath my hand found, NIV 25 if I have rejoiced over my great wealth, the fortune my hands had gained, YLT 26 If I see the light when it shineth, And the precious moon walking, NIV 26 if I have regarded the sun in its radiance or the moon moving in splendor, YLT 27 And my heart is enticed in secret, And my hand doth kiss my mouth, NIV 27 so that my heart was secretly enticed and my hand offered them a kiss of homage, YLT 28 It also [is] a judicial iniquity, For I had lied to God above. NIV 28 then these also would be sins to be judged, for I would have been unfaithful to God on high. YLT 29 If I rejoice at the ruin of my hater, And stirred up myself when evil found him, NIV 29 “If I have rejoiced at my enemy’s misfortune or gloated over the trouble that came to him— YLT 30 Yea, I have not suffered my mouth to sin, To ask with an oath his life. NIV 30 I have not allowed my mouth to sin by invoking a curse against their life— YLT 31 If not -- say ye, O men of my tent, `O that we had of his flesh, we are not satisfied.' NIV 31 if those of my household have never said, ‘Who has not been filled with Job’s meat?’— YLT 32 In the street doth not lodge a stranger, My doors to the traveller I open. NIV 32 but no stranger had to spend the night in the street, for my door was always open to the traveler— YLT 33 If I have covered as Adam my transgressions, To hide in my bosom mine iniquity, NIV 33 if I have concealed my sin as people do,by hiding my guilt in my heart YLT 34 Because I fear a great multitude, And the contempt of families doth affright me, Then I am silent, I go not out of the opening. 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— YLT 35 Who giveth to me a hearing? lo, my mark. The Mighty One doth answer me, And a bill hath mine adversary written. 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. YLT 36 If not -- on my shoulder I take it up, I bind it a crown on myself. NIV 36 Surely I would wear it on my shoulder, I would put it on like a crown. YLT 37 The number of my steps I tell Him, As a leader I approach Him. NIV 37 I would give him an account of my every step; I would present it to him as to a ruler.)— YLT 38 If against me my land doth cry out, And together its furrows weep, NIV 38 “if my land cries out against me and all its furrows are wet with tears, YLT 39 If its strength I consumed without money, And the life of its possessors, I have caused to breathe out, NIV 39 if I have devoured its yield without payment or broken the spirit of its tenants, YLT 40 Instead of wheat let a thorn go forth, And instead of barley a useless weed! The words of Job are finished. NIV 40 then let briers come up instead of wheat and stinkweed instead of barley.” The words of Job are ended.
