KJV JOB24 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB23.htm JOB25.htm
24:1 Why, seeing times [H6256] are not hidden [H6845] from the Almighty [H7706] , do they that know [H3045] him not see [H2372] his days [H3117] ?
24:2 [Some] remove [H5381] the landmarks [H1367] ; they violently take away [H1497] flocks [H5739] , and feed [H7462] [thereof].(feed: or, feed them)
24:3 They drive away [H5090] the ass [H2543] of the fatherless [H3490] , they take [H2254] the widow's [H490] ox [H7794] for a pledge [H2254] .
24:4 They turn [H5186] the needy [H34] out of the way [H1870] : the poor [H6041] [H6035] of the earth [H776] hide [H2244] themselves together [H3162] .
24:5 Behold, [as] wild asses [H6501] in the desert [H4057] , go they forth [H3318] to their work [H6467] ; rising betimes [H7836] for a prey [H2964] : the wilderness [H6160] [yieldeth] food [H3899] for them [and] for [their] children [H5288] .
24:6 They reap [H7114] [H7114] [every one] his corn [H1098] in the field [H7704] : and they gather [H3953] the vintage [H3754] of the wicked [H7563] .(corn: Heb. mingled corn, or, dredge)(they gather: Heb. the wicked gather the vintage)
24:7 They cause the naked [H6174] to lodge [H3885] without clothing [H3830] , that [they have] no covering [H3682] in the cold [H7135] .
24:8 They are wet [H7372] with the showers [H2230] of the mountains [H2022] , and embrace [H2263] the rock [H6697] for want of a shelter [H4268] .
24:9 They pluck [H1497] the fatherless [H3490] from the breast [H7699] , and take a pledge [H2254] of the poor [H6041] .
24:10 They cause [him] to go [H1980] naked [H6174] without clothing [H3830] , and they take away [H5375] the sheaf [H6016] [from] the hungry [H7457] ;
24:11 [Which] make oil [H6671] within [H996] their walls [H7791] , [and] tread [H1869] [their] winepresses [H3342] , and suffer thirst [H6770] .
24:12 Men [H4962] groan [H5008] from out of the city [H5892] , and the soul [H5315] of the wounded [H2491] crieth out [H7768] : yet God [H433] layeth [H7760] not folly [H8604] [to them].
24:13 They are of those that rebel [H4775] against the light [H216] ; they know [H5234] not the ways [H1870] thereof, nor abide [H3427] in the paths [H5410] thereof.
24:14 The murderer [H7523] rising [H6965] with the light [H216] killeth [H6991] the poor [H6041] and needy [H34] , and in the night [H3915] is as a thief [H1590] .
24:15 The eye [H5869] also of the adulterer [H5003] waiteth [H8104] for the twilight [H5399] , saying [H559] , No eye [H5869] shall see [H7789] me: and disguiseth [H5643] [H7760] [his] face [H6440] .(disguiseth: Heb. setteth his face in secret)
24:16 In the dark [H2822] they dig through [H2864] houses [H1004] , [which] they had marked [H2856] for themselves in the daytime [H3119] : they know [H3045] not the light [H216] .
24:17 For the morning [H1242] [is] to them even as [H3162] the shadow of death [H6757] : if [one] know [H5234] [them, they are in] the terrors [H1091] of the shadow of death [H6757] .
24:18 He [is] swift [H7031] as the waters [H6440] [H4325] ; their portion [H2513] is cursed [H7043] in the earth [H776] : he beholdeth [H6437] not the way [H1870] of the vineyards [H3754] .
24:19 Drought [H6723] and heat [H2527] consume [H1497] the snow [H7950] waters [H4325] : [so doth] the grave [H7585] [those which] have sinned [H2398] .(consume: Heb. violently take)
24:20 The womb [H7358] shall forget [H7911] him; the worm [H7415] shall feed sweetly [H4988] on him; he shall be no more remembered [H2142] ; and wickedness [H5766] shall be broken [H7665] as a tree [H6086] .
24:21 He evil entreateth [H7462] the barren [H6135] [that] beareth [H3205] not: and doeth not good [H3190] to the widow [H490] .
24:22 He draweth [H4900] also the mighty [H47] with his power [H3581] : he riseth up [H6965] , and no [man] is sure [H539] of life [H2416] .(no: or, he trusteth not his own life)
24:23 [Though] it be given [H5414] him [to be] in safety [H983] , whereon he resteth [H8172] ; yet his eyes [H5869] [are] upon their ways [H1870] .
24:24 They are exalted [H7426] for a little while [H4592] , but are gone and brought low [H4355] ; they are taken out [H7092] of the way [H1870] as all [other], and cut off [H5243] as the tops [H7218] of the ears of corn [H7641] .(are gone: Heb. are not)(taken: Heb. closed up)
24:25 And if [it be] not [so] now [H645] , who will make [H7760] me a liar [H3576] , and make [H7760] my speech [H4405] nothing worth [H408] ?
