Job's Reply

11I will teach you the manner of God's dealings, and the way of the Almighty I will not conceal. 2As God lives,* who withholds my deserts, v Jb 34, 5 . the Almighty, who has made bitter my soul, 3So long as I still have life in me and the breath of God is in my nostrils, 4My lips shall not speak falsehood, nor my tongue utter deceit! 5Far be it from me to account you right; till I die I will not renounce my innocence. w Jb 2, 3, 9 13, 15; 33, 9 . 6My justice I maintain and I will not relinquish it; my heart does not reproach me for any of my days. 7Let my enemy be as the wicked and my adversary as the unjust! 8For what can the impious man expect when he is cut off, when God requires his life? 9Will God then attend to his cry when calamity comes upon him? 10Will he then delight in the Almighty and call upon him constantly? 12Behold, you yourselves have all seen it; why then do you spend yourselves in idle words!

13 * This is the portion of a wicked man from God, the inheritance an oppressor receives from the Almighty: x Jb 20, 4–29 . 14Though his children be many, the sword is their destiny. His offspring shall not be filled with bread. 15His survivors, when they die, shall have no burial, and their widows shall not be mourned. 16Though he heap up silver like dust and store away mounds of clothing, 17What he has stored the just man shall wear, and the innocent shall divide the silver. 18He builds his house as of cobwebs, or like a booth put up by the vinekeeper. 19He lies down a rich man, one last time; he opens his eyes and nothing remains to him. y Pss 49, 18; 76, 6 . 20Terrors rush upon him by day; at night the tempest carries him off. 21The storm wind seizes him and he disappears; it sweeps him out of his place.*
