Job 31


1  I made3772 a covenant1285 with mine eyes;5869 why4100 then should I think995 upon5921 a maid?1330

2  For what4100 portion2506 of God433 is there from above?4480 4605 and what inheritance5159 of the Almighty7706 from on high?4480 4791

3  Is not3808 destruction343 to the wicked?5767 and a strange5235 punishment to the workers6466 of iniquity?205

4  Doth not3808 he1931 see7200 my ways,1870 and count5608 all3605 my steps?6806

5  If518 I have walked1980 with5973 vanity,7723 or if my foot7272 hath hasted2363 to5921 deceit;4820

6  Let me be weighed8254 in an even6664 balance,3976 that God433 may know3045 mine integrity.8538

7  If518 my step838 hath turned5186 out of4480 the way,1870 and mine heart3820 walked1980 after310 mine eyes,5869 and if any blot3971 hath cleaved1692 to mine hands;3709

8  Then let me sow,2232 and let another312 eat;398 yea, let my offspring6631 be rooted out.8327

9  If518 mine heart3820 have been deceived6601 by5921 a woman,802 or if I have laid wait693 at5921 my neighbor's7453 door;6607

10  Then let my wife802 grind2912 unto another,312 and let others312 bow down3766 upon5921 her.

11  For3588 this1931 is a heinous crime;2154 yea, it1931 is an iniquity5771 to be punished by the judges.6414

12  For3588 it1931 is a fire784 that consumeth398 to5704 destruction,11 and would root out8327 all3605 mine increase.8393

13  If518 I did despise3988 the cause4941 of my manservant5650 or of my maidservant,519 when they contended7378 with5978 me;

14  What4100 then shall I do6213 when3588 God410 riseth up?6965 and when3588 he visiteth,6485 what4100 shall I answer7725 him?

15  Did not3808 he that made6213 me in the womb990 make6213 him? and did not one259 fashion3559 us in the womb?7358

16  If518 I have withheld4513 the poor1800 from their desire,4480 2656 or have caused the eyes5869 of the widow490 to fail;3615

17  Or have eaten398 my morsel6595 myself alone,905 and the fatherless3490 hath not3808 eaten398 thereof;4480

18  (For3588 from my youth4480 5271 he was brought up1431 with me, as with a father,1 and I have guided5148 her from my mother's517 womb;)4480 990

19  If518 I have seen7200 any perish6 for want4480 1097 of clothing,3830 or any poor34 without369 covering;3682

20  If518 his loins2504 have not3808 blessed1288 me, and if he were not warmed2552 with the fleece4480 1488 of my sheep;3532

21  If518 I have lifted up5130 my hand3027 against5921 the fatherless,3490 when3588 I saw7200 my help5833 in the gate:8179

22  Then let mine arm3802 fall5307 from my shoulder blade,4480 7929 and mine arm248 be broken7665 from the bone.4480 7070

23  For3588 destruction343 from God410 was a terror6343 to413 me, and by reason of his highness4480 7613 I could3201 not3808 endure.

24  If518 I have made7760 gold2091 my hope,3689 or have said559 to the fine gold,3800 Thou art my confidence;4009

25  If518 I rejoiced8055 because3588 my wealth2428 was great,7227 and because3588 mine hand3027 had gotten4672 much;3524

26  If518 I beheld7200 the sun216 when3588 it shined,1984 or the moon3394 walking1980 in brightness;3368

27  And my heart3820 hath been secretly5643 enticed,6601 or my mouth6310 hath kissed5401 my hand:3027

28  This1931 also1571 were an iniquity5771 to be punished by the judge:6416 for3588 I should have denied3584 the God410 that is above.4480 4605

29  If518 I rejoiced8055 at the destruction6365 of him that hated8130 me, or lifted up myself5782 when3588 evil7451 found4672 him:

30  Neither3808 have I suffered5414 my mouth2441 to sin2398 by wishing7592 a curse423 to his soul.5315

31  If518 the men4962 of my tabernacle168 said559 not,3808 Oh that4310 we had5414 of his flesh!4480 1320 we cannot3808 be satisfied.7646

32  The stranger1616 did not3808 lodge3885 in the street:2351 but I opened6605 my doors1817 to the traveler.734

33  If518 I covered3680 my transgressions6588 as Adam,121 by hiding2934 mine iniquity5771 in my bosom:2243

34  Did I fear6206 a great7227 multitude,1995 or did the contempt937 of families4940 terrify2865 me, that I kept silence,1826 and went not out3318 3808 of the door?6607

35  Oh that4310 one would5414 hear8085 me! behold,2005 my desire8420 is, that the Almighty7706 would answer6030 me, and that mine adversary376 7379 had written3789 a book.5612

36  Surely518 I would take5375 it upon5921 my shoulder,7926 and bind6029 it as a crown5850 to me.

37  I would declare5046 unto him the number4557 of my steps;6806 as3644 a prince5057 would I go near unto7126 him.

38  If518 my land127 cry2199 against5921 me, or that the furrows8525 likewise3162 thereof complain;1058

39  If518 I have eaten398 the fruits3581 thereof without1097 money,3701 or have caused the owners1167 thereof to lose5301 their life:5315

40  Let thistles2336 grow3318 instead8478 of wheat,2406 and cockle890 instead8478 of barley.8184 The words1697 of Job347 are ended.8552


1 διαθήκην ἐθέμην τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς μου καὶ οὐ συνήσω ἐπὶ παρθένον

2 καὶ τί ἐμέρισεν ὁ θεὸς ἀπάνωθεν καὶ κληρονομία ἱκανοῦ ἐξ ὑψίστων

3 οὐχὶ ἀπώλεια τῷ ἀδίκῳ καὶ ἀπαλλοτρίωσις τοῖς ποιοῦσιν ἀνομίαν

4 οὐχὶ αὐτὸς ὄψεται ὁδόν μου καὶ πάντα τὰ διαβήματά μου ἐξαριθμήσεται

5 εἰ δὲ ἤμην πεπορευμένος μετὰ γελοιαστῶν εἰ δὲ καὶ ἐσπούδασεν ὁ πούς μου εἰς δόλον

6 ἱσταίη με ἄρα ἐν ζυγῷ δικαίῳ οἶδεν δὲ ὁ κύριος τὴν ἀκακίαν μου

7 εἰ ἐξέκλινεν ὁ πούς μου ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ εἰ δὲ καὶ τῷ ὀφθαλμῷ ἐπηκολούθησεν ἡ καρδία μου εἰ δὲ καὶ ταῖς χερσίν μου ἡψάμην δώρων

8 σπείραιμι ἄρα καὶ ἄλλοι φάγοισαν ἄρριζος δὲ γενοίμην ἐπὶ γῆς

9 εἰ ἐξηκολούθησεν ἡ καρδία μου γυναικὶ ἀνδρὸς ἑτέρου εἰ καὶ ἐγκάθετος ἐγενόμην ἐπὶ θύραις αὐτῆς

10 ἀρέσαι ἄρα καὶ ἡ γυνή μου ἑτέρῳ τὰ δὲ νήπιά μου ταπεινωθείη

11 θυμὸς γὰρ ὀργῆς ἀκατάσχετος τὸ μιᾶναι ἀνδρὸς γυναῖκα

12 πῦρ γάρ ἐστιν καιόμενον ἐπὶ πάντων τῶν μερῶν οὗ δ᾽ ἂν ἐπέλθῃ ἐκ ῥιζῶν ἀπώλεσεν

13 εἰ δὲ καὶ ἐφαύλισα κρίμα θεράποντός μου ἢ θεραπαίνης κρινομένων αὐτῶν πρός με

14 τί γὰρ ποιήσω ἐὰν ἔτασίν μου ποιήσηται ὁ κύριος ἐὰν δὲ καὶ ἐπισκοπήν τίνα ἀπόκρισιν ποιήσομαι

15 πότερον οὐχ ὡς καὶ ἐγὼ ἐγενόμην ἐν γαστρί καὶ ἐκεῖνοι γεγόνασιν γεγόναμεν δὲ ἐν τῇ αὐτῇ κοιλίᾳ

16 ἀδύνατοι δὲ χρείαν ἥν ποτ᾽ εἶχον οὐκ ἀπέτυχον χήρας δὲ τὸν ὀφθαλμὸν οὐκ ἐξέτηξα

17 εἰ δὲ καὶ τὸν ψωμόν μου ἔφαγον μόνος καὶ οὐχὶ ὀρφανῷ μετέδωκα

18 ὅτι ἐκ νεότητός μου ἐξέτρεφον ὡς πατὴρ καὶ ἐκ γαστρὸς μητρός μου ὡδήγησα

19 εἰ δὲ καὶ ὑπερεῖδον γυμνὸν ἀπολλύμενον καὶ οὐκ ἠμφίασα

20 ἀδύνατοι δὲ εἰ μὴ εὐλόγησάν με ἀπὸ δὲ κουρᾶς ἀμνῶν μου ἐθερμάνθησαν οἱ ὦμοι αὐτῶν

21 εἰ ἐπῆρα ὀρφανῷ χεῖρα πεποιθὼς ὅτι πολλή μοι βοήθεια περίεστιν

22 ἀποσταίη ἄρα ὁ ὦμός μου ἀπὸ τῆς κλειδός ὁ δὲ βραχίων μου ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀγκῶνός μου συντριβείη

23 φόβος γὰρ κυρίου συνέσχεν με καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ λήμματος αὐτοῦ οὐχ ὑποίσω

24 εἰ ἔταξα χρυσίον ἰσχύν μου εἰ δὲ καὶ λίθῳ πολυτελεῖ ἐπεποίθησα

25 εἰ δὲ καὶ εὐφράνθην πολλοῦ πλούτου μοι γενομένου εἰ δὲ καὶ ἐπ᾽ ἀναριθμήτοις ἐθέμην χεῖρά μου

26 ἦ οὐχ ὁρῶ μὲν ἥλιον τὸν ἐπιφαύσκοντα ἐκλείποντα σελήνην δὲ φθίνουσαν οὐ γὰρ ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῖς ἐστιν

27 καὶ εἰ ἠπατήθη λάθρᾳ ἡ καρδία μου εἰ δὲ καὶ χεῖρά μου ἐπιθεὶς ἐπὶ στόματί μου ἐφίλησα

28 καὶ τοῦτό μοι ἄρα ἀνομία ἡ μεγίστη λογισθείη ὅτι ἐψευσάμην ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ ὑψίστου

29 εἰ δὲ καὶ ἐπιχαρὴς ἐγενόμην πτώματι ἐχθρῶν μου καὶ εἶπεν ἡ καρδία μου εὖγε

30 ἀκούσαι ἄρα τὸ οὖς μου τὴν κατάραν μου θρυληθείην δὲ ἄρα ὑπὸ λαοῦ μου κακούμενος

31 εἰ δὲ καὶ πολλάκις εἶπον αἱ θεράπαιναί μου τίς ἂν δῴη ἡμῖν τῶν σαρκῶν αὐτοῦ πλησθῆναι λίαν μου χρηστοῦ ὄντος

32 ἔξω δὲ οὐκ ηὐλίζετο ξένος ἡ δὲ θύρα μου παντὶ ἐλθόντι ἀνέῳκτο

33 εἰ δὲ καὶ ἁμαρτὼν ἀκουσίως ἔκρυψα τὴν ἁμαρτίαν μου

34 οὐ γὰρ διετράπην πολυοχλίαν πλήθους τοῦ μὴ ἐξαγορεῦσαι ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν εἰ δὲ καὶ εἴασα ἀδύνατον ἐξελθεῖν θύραν μου κόλπῳ κενῷ

35 τίς δῴη ἀκούοντά μου χεῖρα δὲ κυρίου εἰ μὴ ἐδεδοίκειν συγγραφὴν δέ ἣν εἶχον κατά τινος

36 ἐπ᾽ ὤμοις ἂν περιθέμενος στέφανον ἀνεγίνωσκον

37 καὶ εἰ μὴ ῥήξας αὐτὴν ἀπέδωκα οὐθὲν λαβὼν παρὰ χρεοφειλέτου

38 εἰ ἐπ᾽ ἐμοί ποτε ἡ γῆ ἐστέναξεν εἰ δὲ καὶ οἱ αὔλακες αὐτῆς ἔκλαυσαν ὁμοθυμαδόν

39 εἰ δὲ καὶ τὴν ἰσχὺν αὐτῆς ἔφαγον μόνος ἄνευ τιμῆς εἰ δὲ καὶ ψυχὴν κυρίου τῆς γῆς ἐκβαλὼν ἐλύπησα

40 ἀντὶ πυροῦ ἄρα ἐξέλθοι μοι κνίδη ἀντὶ δὲ κριθῆς βάτος καὶ ἐπαύσατο Ιωβ ῥήμασιν

1 [Pepigi fœdus cum oculis meis,
ut ne cogitarem quidem de virgine.

2 Quam enim partem haberet in me Deus desuper,
et hæreditatem Omnipotens de excelsis?

3 Numquid non perditio est iniquo,
et alienatio operantibus injustitiam?

4 Nonne ipse considerat vias meas,
et cunctos gressus meos dinumerat?

5 Si ambulavi in vanitate,
et festinavit in dolo pes meus,

6 appendat me in statera justa,
et sciat Deus simplicitatem meam.

7 Si declinavit gressus meus de via,
et si secutum est oculos meos cor meum,
et si manibus meis adhæsit macula,

8 seram, et alius comedat,
et progenies mea eradicetur.

9 Si deceptum est cor meum super muliere,
et si ad ostium amici mei insidiatus sum,

10 scortum alterius sit uxor mea,
et super illam incurventur alii.

11 Hoc enim nefas est,
et iniquitas maxima.

12 Ignis est usque ad perditionem devorans,
et omnia eradicans genimina.

13 Si contempsi subire judicium cum servo meo et ancilla mea,
cum disceptarent adversum me:

14 quid enim faciam cum surrexerit ad judicandum Deus?
et cum quæsierit, quid respondebo illi?

15 Numquid non in utero fecit me, qui et illum operatus est,
et formavit me in vulva unus?

16 Si negavi quod volebant pauperibus,
et oculos viduæ expectare feci;

17 si comedi buccellam meam solus,
et non comedit pupillus ex ea

18 (quia ab infantia mea crevit mecum miseratio,
et de utero matris meæ egressa est mecum);

19 si despexi pereuntem, eo quod non habuerit indumentum,
et absque operimento pauperem;

20 si non benedixerunt mihi latera ejus,
et de velleribus ovium mearum calefactus est;

21 si levavi super pupillum manum meam,
etiam cum viderem me in porta superiorem:

22 humerus meus a junctura sua cadat,
et brachium meum cum suis ossibus confringatur.

23 Semper enim quasi tumentes super me fluctus timui Deum,
et pondus ejus ferre non potui.

24 Si putavi aurum robur meum,
et obrizo dixi: Fiducia mea;

25 si lætatus sum super multis divitiis meis,
et quia plurima reperit manus mea;

26 si vidi solem cum fulgeret,
et lunam incedentem clare,

27 et lætatum est in abscondito cor meum,
et osculatus sum manum meam ore meo:

28 quæ est iniquitas maxima,
et negatio contra Deum altissimum.

29 Si gavisus sum ad ruinam ejus qui me oderat,
et exsultavi quod invenisset eum malum:

30 non enim dedi ad peccandum guttur meum,
ut expeterem maledicens animam ejus.

31 Si non dixerunt viri tabernaculi mei:
Quis det de carnibus ejus, ut saturemur?

32 foris non mansit peregrinus:
ostium meum viatori patuit.

33 Si abscondi quasi homo peccatum meum,
et celavi in sinu meo iniquitatem meam;

34 si expavi ad multitudinem nimiam,
et despectio propinquorum terruit me:
et non magis tacui, nec egressus sum ostium.

35 Quis mihi tribuat auditorem,
ut desiderium meum audiat Omnipotens,
et librum scribat ipse qui judicat,

36 ut in humero meo portem illum,
et circumdem illum quasi coronam mihi?

37 Per singulos gradus meos pronuntiabo illum,
et quasi principi offeram eum.

38 Si adversum me terra mea clamat,
et cum ipsa sulci ejus deflent:

39 si fructus ejus comedi absque pecunia,
et animam agricolarum ejus afflixi:

40 pro frumento oriatur mihi tribulus,
et pro hordeo spina.] Finita sunt verba Job.
