1 But Job answered and said, 2 Hear ye, hear ye my words, that I may not have this consolation from you. 3 Raise me, and I will speak; then ye shall not laugh me to scorn. 4 What! is my reproof of man? and why should I not be angry? 5 Look upon me, and wonder, laying your hand upon your cheek. 6 For even when I remember, I am alarmed, and pains seize my flesh. 7 Wherefore do the ungodly live, and grow old even in wealth? 8 Their seed is according to [their] desire, and their children are in [their] sight. 9 Their houses are prosperous, neither [have they] any where [cause for] fear, neither is there a scourge from the Lord upon them. 10 Their cow does not cast her calf, and their [beast] with young is safe, and does not miscarry. 11 And they remain as an unfailing flock, and their children play before [them], taking up the psaltery and harp; 12 and they rejoice at the voice of a song. 13 And they spend their days in wealth, and fall asleep in the rest of the grave. 14 Yet [such a man] says to the Lord, Depart from me; I desire not to know thy ways. 15 What is the Mighty One, that we should serve him? and what profit is there that we should approach him? 16 For their good things were in [their] hands, but he regards not the works of the ungodly. 17 Nevertheless, the lamp of the ungodly also shall be put out, and destruction shall come upon them, and pangs of vengeance shall seize them. 18 And they shall be as chaff before the wind, or as dust which the storm has taken up. 19 Let his substance fail [to supply] his children: [God] shall recompense him, and he shall know it. 20 Let his eyes see his own destruction, and let him not be saved by the Lord. 21 For his desire is in his house with him, and the number of his months has been suddenly cut off. 22 Is it not the Lord who teaches understanding and knowledge? and does not he judge murders? 23 One shall die in his perfect strength, and wholly at ease and prosperous; 24 and his inwards are full of fat, and his marrow is diffused [throughout him]. 25 And another dies in bitterness of soul, not eating any good thing. 26 But they lie down in the earth together, and corruption covers them. 27 So I know you, that ye presumptuously attack me: 28 so that ye will say, Where is the house of the prince? and where is the covering of the tabernacles of the ungodly? 29 Ask those that go by the way, and do not disown their tokens. 30 For the wicked hastens to the day of destruction: they shall be led away for the day of his vengeance. 31 Who will tell him his way to his face, whereas he has done [it]? who shall recompense him? 32 And he has been led away to the tombs, and he has watched over the heaps. 33 The stones of the valley have been sweet to him, and every man shall depart after him, and [there are] innumerable [ones] before him. 34 How then do ye comfort me in vain? whereas I have no rest from your molestation. ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ ᾿Ιὼβ λέγει· 2 ἀκούσατε ἀκούσατέ μου τῶν λόγων, ἵνα μὴ ᾖ μοι παρ᾿ ὑμῶν αὕτη ἡ παράκλησις. 3 ἄρατέ με, ἐγὼ δὲ λαλήσω, εἶτ᾿ οὐ καταγελάσετέ μου. 4 τί γάρ; μὴ ἀνθρώπου μου ἡ ἔλεγξις; ἢ διατί οὐ θυμωθήσομαι; 5 εἰσβλέψαντες εἰς ἐμὲ θαυμάσετε χεῖρα θέντες ἐπὶ σιαγόνι· 6 ἐάν τε γὰρ μνησθῶ, ἐσπούδακα, ἔχουσι δέ μου τὰς σάρκας ὀδύναι. 7 διατὶ ἀσεβεῖς ζῶσι, πεπαλαίωνται δὲ καὶ ἐν πλούτῳ; 8 ὁ σπόρος αὐτῶν κατὰ ψυχήν, τὰ δὲ τέκνα αὐτῶν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς. 9 οἱ οἶκοι αὐτῶν εὐθηνοῦσι, φόβος δὲ οὐδαμοῦ, μάστιξ δὲ παρὰ Κυρίου οὐκ ἔστιν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῖς. 10 ἡ βοῦς αὐτῶν οὐκ ὠμοτόκησε, διεσώθη δὲ αὐτῶν ἐν γαστρὶ ἔχουσα καὶ οὐκ ἔσφαλε. 11 μένουσε δὲ ὡς πρόβατα αἰώνια, τὰ δὲ παιδία αὐτῶν προσπαίζουσιν 12 ἀναλαβόντες ψαλτήριον καὶ κιθάραν καὶ εὐφραίνονται φωνῇ ψαλμοῦ. 13 συνετέλεσαν δὲ ἐν ἀγαθοῖς τὸν βίον αὐτῶν, ἐν δὲ ἀναπαύσει ᾅδου ἐκοιμήθησαν. 14 λέγει δὲ Κυρίῳ· ἀπόστα ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ, ὁδούς σου εἰδέναι οὐ βούλομαι· 15 τί ἱκανός, ὅτι δουλεύσομεν αὐτῷ; καὶ τίς ὠφέλεια, ὅτι ἀπαντήσομεν αὐτῷ; 16 ἐν χερσὶ γὰρ ἦν αὐτῶν τὰ ἀγαθά, ἔργα δὲ ἀσεβῶν οὐκ ἐφορᾷ. 17 οὐ μὴν δὲ ἀλλὰ καὶ ἀσεβῶν λύχνος σβεσθήσεται, ἐπελεύσεται δὲ αὐτοῖς ἡ καταστροφή, ὠδῖνες δὲ αὐτοὺς ἕξουσιν ἀπὸ ὀργῆς. 18 ἔσονται δὲ ὥσπερ ἄχυρα ὑπ᾿ ἀνέμου ἢ ὥσπερ κονιορτός, ὃν ὑφείλετο λαῖλαψ. 19 ἐκλίποι υἱοὺς τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτοῦ, ἀνταποδώσει πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ γνώσεται. 20 ἴδοισαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ τὴν ἑαυτοῦ σφαγήν, ἀπὸ δὲ Κυρίου μὴ διασωθείη· 21 ὅτι τὸ θέλημα αὐτοῦ ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀριθμοὶ μηνῶν αὐτοῦ διῃρέθησαν. 22 πότερον οὐχὶ ὁ Κύριός ἐστιν ὁ διδάσκων σύνεσιν καὶ ἐπιστήμην; αὐτὸς δὲ φόνους διακρινεῖ; 23 οὗτος ἀποθανεῖται ἐν κράτει ἁπλοσύνης αὐτοῦ, ὅλος δὲ εὐπαθῶν καὶ εὐθηνῶν· 24 τὰ δὲ ἔγκατα αὐτοῦ πλήρη στέατος, μυελὸς δὲ αὐτοῦ διαχεῖται. 25 ὁ δὲ τελευτᾷ ὑπὸ πικρίας ψυχῆς, οὐ φαγὼν οὐδὲν ἀγαθόν. 26 ὁμοθυμαδὸν δὲ ἐπὶ γῆς κοιμῶνται, σαπρία δὲ αὐτοὺς ἐκάλυψεν. 27 ὥστε οἶδα ὑμᾶς ὅτι τόλμῃ ἐπίκεισθέ μοι· 28 ὥστε ἐρεῖτε· ποῦ ἐστιν οἶκος ἄρχοντος; καὶ ποῦ ἐστιν ἡ σκέπη τῶν σκηνωμάτων τῶν ἀσεβῶν; 29 ἐρωτήσατε παραπορευομένους ὁδόν, καὶ τὰ σημεῖα αὐτῶν οὐκ ἀπαλλοτριώσετε· 30 ὅτι εἰς ἡμέραν ἀπωλείας κουφίζεται ὁ πονηρός, εἰς ἡμέραν ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ ἀπαχθήσονται. 31 τίς ἀπαγγελεῖ ἐπὶ προσώπου αὐτοῦ τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ; καὶ αὐτὸς ἐποίησε, τίς ἀνταποδώσει αὐτῷ; 32 καὶ αὐτὸς εἰς τάφους ἀπηνέχθη καὶ ἐπὶ σωρῶν ἠγρύπνησεν. 33 ἐγλυκάνθησαν αὐτῷ χάλικες χειμάρρου, καὶ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ πᾶς ἄνθρωπος ἀπελεύσεται, καὶ ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ ἀναρίθμητοι. 34 πῶς δὲ παρακαλεῖτέ με κενά; τὸ δὲ ἐμὲ καταπαύσασθαι ἀφ᾿ ὑμῶν οὐδέν.
