Job protesteth his sincerety.
Job 27:1 And Job continued his parable and said, Job 27:2 [As] *God liveth, who hath taken away my right, and the Almighty, who hath embittered my soul, Job 27:3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of +God is in my nostrils, Job 27:4 My lips shall not speak unrighteousness, nor my tongue utter deceit! Job 27:5 Be it far from me that I should justify you; till I die I will not remove my blamelessness from me. Job 27:6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart reproacheth [me] not one of my days. Job 27:7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.
The hypocrite is without hope.
Job 27:8 For what is the hope of the ungodly, when [God] cutteth him off, when +God taketh away his soul? Job 27:9 Will *God hear his cry when distress cometh upon him? Job 27:10 Doth he delight himself in the Almighty? will he at all times call upon +God?
The blessings which the wicked have are turned into curses.
Job 27:11 I will teach you concerning the hand of *God; what is with the Almighty will I not conceal. Job 27:12 Behold, ye yourselves have all seen [it]; and why are ye thus altogether vain? Job 27:13 This is the portion of the wicked man with *God, and the heritage of the violent, which they receive from the Almighty: Job 27:14 If his children be multiplied, it is for the sword, and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread; Job 27:15 Those that remain of him shall be buried by death, and his widows shall not weep. Job 27:16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare clothing as the clay; Job 27:17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on; and the innocent shall divide the silver. Job 27:18 He buildeth his house as the moth, and as a booth that a keeper maketh. Job 27:19 He lieth down rich, but will do so no more; he openeth his eyes, and he is not. Job 27:20 Terrors overtake him like waters; a whirlwind stealeth him away in the night. Job 27:21 The east wind carrieth him away and he is gone; and as a storm it hurleth him out of his place. Job 27:22 And [God] shall cast upon him and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand. Job 27:23 [Men] shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.
