Job 17 KJV

Job 17 – King James Version (KJV)

17:1
My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me.

17:2
Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?

17:3
Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strike hands with me?

17:4
For thou hast hid their heart from understanding: therefore shalt thou not exalt them.

17:5
He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.

17:6
He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.

17:7
Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.

17:8
Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.

17:9
The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.

17:10
But as for you all, do ye return, and come now: for I cannot find one wise man among you.

17:11
My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.

17:12
They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.

17:13
If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness.

17:14
I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother, and my sister.

17:15
And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?

17:16
They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.
