KJV JOB31 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB30.htm JOB32.htm
31:1 I made [H3772] a covenant [H1285] with mine eyes [H5869] ; why then should I think [H995] upon a maid [H1330] ?
31:2 For what portion [H2506] of God [H433] [is there] from above [H4605] ? and [what] inheritance [H5159] of the Almighty [H7706] from on high [H4791] ?
31:3 [Is] not destruction [H343] to the wicked [H5767] ? and a strange [H5235] [punishment] to the workers [H6466] of iniquity [H205] ?
31:4 Doth not he see [H7200] my ways [H1870] , and count [H5608] all my steps [H6806] ?
31:5 If I have walked [H1980] with vanity [H7723] , or if my foot [H7272] hath hasted [H2363] to deceit [H4820] ;
31:6 Let me be weighed [H8254] in an even [H6664] balance [H3976] , that God [H433] may know [H3045] mine integrity [H8538] .(Let: Heb. Let him weigh me in balances of justice)
31:7 If my step [H838] hath turned out [H5186] of the way [H1870] , and mine heart [H3820] walked [H1980] after [H310] mine eyes [H5869] , and if any blot [H3971] hath cleaved [H1692] to mine hands [H3709] ;
31:8 [Then] let me sow [H2232] , and let another [H312] eat [H398] ; yea, let my offspring [H6631] be rooted out [H8327] .
31:9 If mine heart [H3820] have been deceived [H6601] by a woman [H802] , or [if] I have laid wait [H693] at my neighbour's [H7453] door [H6607] ;
31:10 [Then] let my wife [H802] grind [H2912] unto another [H312] , and let others [H312] bow down [H3766] upon her.
31:11 For this [is] an heinous crime [H2154] ; yea, it [is] an iniquity [H5771] [to be punished by] the judges [H6414] .
31:12 For it [is] a fire [H784] [that] consumeth [H398] to destruction [H11] , and would root out [H8327] all mine increase [H8393] .
31:13 If I did despise [H3988] the cause [H4941] of my manservant [H5650] or of my maidservant [H519] , when they contended [H7379] with me;
31:14 What then shall I do [H6213] when God [H410] riseth up [H6965] ? and when he visiteth [H6485] , what shall I answer [H7725] him?
31:15 Did not he that made [H6213] me in the womb [H990] make [H6213] him? and did not one [H259] fashion [H3559] us in the womb [H7358] ?(did not one: or, did he not fashion us in one womb?)
31:16 If I have withheld [H4513] the poor [H1800] from [their] desire [H2656] , or have caused the eyes [H5869] of the widow [H490] to fail [H3615] ;
31:17 Or have eaten [H398] my morsel [H6595] myself alone, and the fatherless [H3490] hath not eaten [H398] thereof;
31:18 (For from my youth [H5271] he was brought up [H1431] with me, as [with] a father [H1] , and I have guided [H5148] her from my mother's [H517] womb [H990] ;)(her: that is, the widow)
31:19 If I have seen [H7200] any perish [H6] for want of clothing [H3830] , or any poor [H34] without covering [H3682] ;
31:20 If his loins [H2504] have not blessed [H1288] me, and [if] he were [not] warmed [H2552] with the fleece [H1488] of my sheep [H3532] ;
31:21 If I have lifted up [H5130] my hand [H3027] against the fatherless [H3490] , when I saw [H7200] my help [H5833] in the gate [H8179] :
31:22 [Then] let mine arm [H3802] fall [H5307] from my shoulder blade [H7929] , and mine arm [H248] be broken [H7665] from the bone [H7070] .(bone: or, chanelbone)
31:23 For destruction [H343] [from] God [H410] [was] a terror [H6343] to me, and by reason of his highness [H7613] I could [H3201] not endure.
31:24 If I have made [H7760] gold [H2091] my hope [H3689] , or have said [H559] to the fine gold [H3800] , [Thou art] my confidence [H4009] ;
31:25 If I rejoiced [H8055] because my wealth [H2428] [was] great [H7227] , and because mine hand [H3027] had gotten [H4672] much [H3524] ;(gotten: Heb. found much)
31:26 If I beheld [H7200] the sun [H216] when it shined [H1984] , or the moon [H3394] walking [H1980] [in] brightness [H3368] ;(sun: Heb. light)(in: Heb. bright)
31:27 And my heart [H3820] hath been secretly [H5643] enticed [H6601] , or my mouth [H6310] hath kissed [H5401] my hand [H3027] :(my mouth: Heb. my hand hath kissed my mouth)
31:28 This also [were] an iniquity [H5771] [to be punished by] the judge [H6416] : for I should have denied [H3584] the God [H410] [that is] above [H4605] .
31:29 If I rejoiced [H8055] at the destruction [H6365] of him that hated [H8130] me, or lifted up [H5782] myself when evil [H7451] found [H4672] him:
31:30 Neither have I suffered [H5414] my mouth [H2441] to sin [H2398] by wishing [H7592] a curse [H423] to his soul [H5315] .(mouth: Heb. palate)
31:31 If the men [H4962] of my tabernacle [H168] said [H559] not, Oh that we had [H5414] of his flesh [H1320] ! we cannot be satisfied [H7646] .
31:32 The stranger [H1616] did not lodge [H3885] in the street [H2351] : [but] I opened [H6605] my doors [H1817] to the traveller [H734] .(traveller: or, way)
31:33 If I covered [H3680] my transgressions [H6588] as Adam [H121] , by hiding [H2934] mine iniquity [H5771] in my bosom [H2243] :(as Adam: or, after the manner of men)
31:34 Did I fear [H6206] a great [H7227] multitude [H1995] , or did the contempt [H937] of families [H4940] terrify [H2865] me, that I kept silence [H1826] , [and] went not out [H3318] of the door [H6607] ?
31:35 Oh that [H5414] one would hear [H8085] me! behold, my desire [H8420] [is, that] the Almighty [H7706] would answer [H6030] me, and [that] mine adversary [H376] [H7379] had written [H3789] a book [H5612] .(my: or, my sign is that the Almighty will)
31:36 Surely I would take [H5375] it upon my shoulder [H7926] , [and] bind [H6029] it [as] a crown [H5850] to me.
31:37 I would declare [H5046] unto him the number [H4557] of my steps [H6806] ; as a prince [H5057] would I go near [H7126] unto him.
31:38 If my land [H127] cry [H2199] against me, or that the furrows [H8525] likewise [H3162] thereof complain [H1058] ;(complain: Heb. weep)
31:39 If I have eaten [H398] the fruits [H3581] thereof without money [H3701] , or have caused the owners [H1167] thereof to lose [H5301] their life [H5315] :(fruits: Heb. strength)(the owners: Heb. the soul of the owners thereof to expire, or, breathe out)
31:40 Let thistles [H2336] grow [H3318] instead of wheat [H2406] , and cockle [H890] instead of barley [H8184] . The words [H1697] of Job [H347] are ended [H8552] .(cockle: or, noisome weeds)
