Job 27 - NIV

Job’s Final Word to His Friends

1 And Job continued his discourse:


“As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice,
the Almighty, who has made my life bitter,

3 as long as I have life within me,
the breath of God in my nostrils,

4 my lips will not say anything wicked,
and my tongue will not utter lies.

5 I will never admit you are in the right;
till I die, I will not deny my integrity.

6 I will maintain my innocence and never let go of it;
my conscience will not reproach me as long as I live.


“May my enemy be like the wicked,
my adversary like the unjust!

8 For what hope have the godless when they are cut off,
when God takes away their life?

9 Does God listen to their cry
when distress comes upon them?

10 Will they find delight in the Almighty?
Will they call on God at all times?


“I will teach you about the power of God;
the ways of the Almighty I will not conceal.

12 You have all seen this yourselves.
Why then this meaningless talk?


“Here is the fate God allots to the wicked,
the heritage a ruthless man receives from the Almighty:

14 However many his children, their fate is the sword;
his offspring will never have enough to eat.

15 The plague will bury those who survive him,
and their widows will not weep for them.

16 Though he heaps up silver like dust
and clothes like piles of clay,

17 what he lays up the righteous will wear,
and the innocent will divide his silver.

18 The house he builds is like a moth’s cocoon,
like a hut made by a watchman.

19 He lies down wealthy, but will do so no more;
when he opens his eyes, all is gone.

20 Terrors overtake him like a flood;
a tempest snatches him away in the night.

21 The east wind carries him off, and he is gone;
it sweeps him out of his place.

22 It hurls itself against him without mercy
as he flees headlong from its power.

23 It claps its hands in derision
and hisses him out of his place.”

The Cross and the Conscience
Shared by: Chris McCall on Feb, 2007
Summary: God gave man a conscience. No animal has this gift. It is an internal ability to discern what is right and what is wrong. That is why the laws of most nations are basically the same, even if the Bible is not the basis of their laws
