the Almighty, made my soul bitter

Posted by Pelgrim on 17th November 2007

Job 27, 1 Job continued his parable, and said, 2 As God liveth, who and hath taken away my judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;
vexed…: Heb. made my soul bitter

3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;
the spirit…: that is, the breath which God gave him

4 My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. 5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me. 6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous.

8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?
