1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
27:1 ¶ And Job again took up his measure, and said:
27:2 As GOD liveth who hath taken away my right, even the Almighty, who hath embittered my soul;
27:3 All the while my inspiration is in me, and the spirit of GOD is in my nostrils,
27:4 Verily my lips shall not speak perversity, nor shall, my tongue, utter deceit.
27:5 Far be it from me! that I should justify, you,Even until I breathe my last, will I not let go mine integrity from me:
27:6 On my righteousness, have I taken fast hold, and will not give it up, My heart shall not reproach any of my days.
27:7 ¶ Let mine enemy be a veritably lawless one! And, he that lifteth himself up against me, one veritably perverse!
27:8 For what shall be the hope of the impious, though he graspeth with greed, when GOD shall draw forth his soul?
27:9 His outcry, will GOD hear, when there cometh upon him distress?
27:10 Verily, in the Almighty, he will not find delight, nor call on GOD continually!
27:11 ¶ I would teach you, by the hand of GOD, That which is with the Almighty, will I not conceal.
27:12 Lo! ye, have, all of you, seen, Wherefore, then, is it, that ye are utterly without purpose?
27:13 This, is the portion of a lawless man with GOD, That, the heritage of tyrantsfrom the Almighty, he shall receive.
27:14 If his children be multiplied, for them, [there is] the sword, and, his offspring, shall not be filled with bread;
27:15 His survivors, by pestilence, shall come to the grave, and, his widows, shall not weep;
27:16 Though he heap up silver like, dust, and, like a pile, he prepare clothing,
27:17 He may prepare, but, the righteous, shall put on, and, the silver, shall the innocent apportion.
27:18 He hath built, like a moth, his house,like a hut, which a watcher hath made.
27:19 The rich man, shall lie down, and not do it again, his eyes, hath he opened, and then is not.
27:20 There shall reach himlike watersterrors, By night, a storm-wind hath stolen him away;
27:21 An east wind shall lift him up, and he shall depart, and it shall sweep him away out of his place;
27:22 And He will cast upon him and not spare, Out of his hand, shall he, swiftly flee;
27:23 He shall clap over him his hands, and shall hiss him forth out of his place.
