Job 31

NCV 1 "But I made an agreement with my eyes not to look with desire at a girl. NIV 1 “I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman. NCV 2 What has God above promised for people? NIV 2 For what is our lot from God above, our heritage from the Almighty on high? NCV 3 It is ruin for evil people and disaster for those who do wrong. NIV 3 Is it not ruin for the wicked, disaster for those who do wrong? NCV 4 God sees my ways and counts every step I take. NIV 4 Does he not see my ways and count my every step? NCV 5 "If I have been dishonest or lied to others, NIV 5 “If I have walked with falsehood or my foot has hurried after deceit— NCV 6 then let God weigh me on honest scales. Then he will know I have done nothing wrong. NIV 6 let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless— NCV 7 If I have turned away from doing what is right, or my heart has been led by my eyes to do wrong, or my hands have been made unclean, 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, NCV 8 then let other people eat what I have planted, and let my crops be plowed up. NIV 8 then may others eat what I have sown, and may my crops be uprooted. NCV 9 "If I have desired another woman or have waited at my neighbor's door for his wife, NIV 9 “If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door, NCV 10 then let my wife grind another man's grain, and let other men have sexual relations with her. NIV 10 then may my wife grind another man’s grain, and may other men sleep with her. NCV 11 That would be shameful, a sin to be punished. NIV 11 For that would have been wicked, a sin to be judged. NCV 12 It is like a fire that burns and destroys; all I have done would be plowed up. NIV 12 It is a fire that burns to Destruction ; it would have uprooted my harvest. NCV 13 "If I have been unfair to my male and female slaves when they had 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, NCV 14 how could I tell God what I did? What will I answer when he asks me to explain what I've done? NIV 14 what will I do when God confronts me? What will I answer when called to account? NCV 15 God made me in my mother's womb, and he also made them; the same God formed both of us in our mothers' wombs. NIV 15 Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers? NCV 16 "I have never refused the appeals of the poor or let widows give up hope while looking for help. NIV 16 “If I have denied the desires of the poor or let the eyes of the widow grow weary, NCV 17 I have not kept my food to myself but have given it to the orphans. NIV 17 if I have kept my bread to myself, not sharing it with the fatherless— NCV 18 Since I was young, I have been like a father to the orphans. From my birth I guided the widows. NIV 18 but from my youth I reared them as a father would, and from my birth I guided the widow— NCV 19 I have not let anyone die for lack of clothes or let a needy person go without a coat. NIV 19 if I have seen anyone perishing for lack of clothing, or the needy without garments, NCV 20 That person's heart blessed me, because I warmed him with the wool of my sheep. NIV 20 and their hearts did not bless me for warming them with the fleece from my sheep, NCV 21 I have never hurt an orphan even when I knew I could win in court. NIV 21 if I have raised my hand against the fatherless, knowing that I had influence in court, NCV 22 If I have, then let my arm fall off my shoulder and be broken at the joint. NIV 22 then let my arm fall from the shoulder, let it be broken off at the joint. NCV 23 I fear destruction from God, and I fear his majesty, so I could not do such things. NIV 23 For I dreaded destruction from God, and for fear of his splendor I could not do such things. NCV 24 "I have not put my trust in gold or said to pure gold, 'You are my security.' NIV 24 “If I have put my trust in gold or said to pure gold, ‘You are my security,’ NCV 25 I have not celebrated my great wealth or the riches my hands had gained. NIV 25 if I have rejoiced over my great wealth, the fortune my hands had gained, NCV 26 I have not thought about worshiping the sun in its brightness nor admired the moon moving in glory NIV 26 if I have regarded the sun in its radiance or the moon moving in splendor, NCV 27 so that my heart was pulled away from God. My hand has never offered the sun and moon a kiss of worship. NIV 27 so that my heart was secretly enticed and my hand offered them a kiss of homage, NCV 28 If I had, these also would have been sins to be punished, because I would have been unfaithful to God. NIV 28 then these also would be sins to be judged, for I would have been unfaithful to God on high. NCV 29 "I have not been happy when my enemy fell or laughed when he had trouble. NIV 29 “If I have rejoiced at my enemy’s misfortune or gloated over the trouble that came to him— NCV 30 I have not let my mouth sin by cursing my enemy's life. NIV 30 I have not allowed my mouth to sin by invoking a curse against their life— NCV 31 The men of my house have always said, 'Everyone has eaten all he wants of Job's food.' NIV 31 if those of my household have never said, ‘Who has not been filled with Job’s meat?’— NCV 32 No stranger ever had to spend the night in the street, because I always let travelers stay in my home. NIV 32 but no stranger had to spend the night in the street, for my door was always open to the traveler— NCV 33 I have not hidden my sin as others do, secretly keeping my guilt to myself. NIV 33 if I have concealed my sin as people do,by hiding my guilt in my heart NCV 34 I was not so afraid of the crowd that I kept quiet and stayed inside because I feared being hated by other families. 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— NCV 35 ("How I wish a court would hear my case! Here I sign my name to show I have told the truth. Now let the Almighty answer me; let the one who accuses me write it down. 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. NCV 36 I would wear the writing on my shoulder; I would put it on like a crown. NIV 36 Surely I would wear it on my shoulder, I would put it on like a crown. NCV 37 I would explain to God every step I took, and I would come near to 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.)— NCV 38 "If my land cries out against me and its plowed rows are not wet with tears, NIV 38 “if my land cries out against me and all its furrows are wet with tears, NCV 39 if I have taken the land's harvest without paying or have broken the spirit of those who worked the land, NIV 39 if I have devoured its yield without payment or broken the spirit of its tenants, NCV 40 then let thorns come up instead of wheat, and let weeds come up instead of barley." 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.
