- And Job addeth to lift up his simile, and saith: --
- God liveth! He turned aside my judgment, And the Mighty -- He made my soul bitter.
- For all the while my breath [is] in me, And the spirit of God in my nostrils.
- My lips do not speak perverseness, And my tongue doth not utter deceit.
- Pollution to me -- if I justify you, Till I expire I turn not aside mine integrity from me.
- On my righteousness I have laid hold, And I do not let it go, My heart doth not reproach me while I live.
- As the wicked is my enemy, And my withstander as the perverse.
- For what [is] the hope of the profane, When He doth cut off? When God doth cast off his soul?
- His cry doth God hear, When distress cometh on him?
- On the Mighty doth he delight himself? Call God at all times?
- I shew you by the hand of God, That which [is] with the Mighty I hide not.
- Lo, ye -- all of you -- have seen, And why [is] this -- ye are altogether vain?
- This [is] the portion of wicked man with God, And the inheritance of terrible ones From the Mighty they receive.
- If his sons multiply -- for them [is] a sword. And his offspring [are] not satisfied [with] bread.
- His remnant in death are buried, And his widows do not weep.
- If he heap up as dust silver, And as clay prepare clothing,
- He prepareth -- and the righteous putteth [it] on, And the silver the innocent doth apportion.
- He hath built as a moth his house, And as a booth a watchman hath made.
- Rich he lieth down, and he is not gathered, His eyes he hath opened, and he is not.
- Overtake him as waters do terrors, By night stolen him away hath a whirlwind.
- Take him up doth an east wind, and he goeth, And it frighteneth him from his place,
- And it casteth at him, and doth not spare, From its hand he diligently fleeth.
- It clappeth at him its hands, And it hisseth at him from his place.

- Destruction and death have said: `With our ears we have heard its fame.'
- God hath understood its way, And He hath known its place.

- Then He hath seen and declareth it, He hath prepared it, and also searched it out,
- And He saith to man: -- `Lo, fear of the Lord, that [is] wisdom, And to turn from evil [is] understanding.'
