1 And Job further continued and said in his parable, 2 [As] God lives, who has thus judged me; and the Almighty, who has embittered my soul; 3 verily, while my breath is yet in [me], and the breath of God which remains to me is in my nostrils, 4 my lips shall not speak evil words, neither shall my soul meditate unrighteous thoughts. 5 Far be it from me that I should justify you till I die; for I will not let go my innocence, 6 but keeping fast to [my] righteousness I will by no means let it go: for I am not conscious to myself of having done any thing amiss. 7 Nay rather, but let mine enemies be as the overthrow of the ungodly, and they that rise up against me, as the destruction of transgressors. 8 For what is the hope of the ungodly, that he holds to it? will he indeed trust in the Lord [and] be saved? 9 Will God hear his prayer? or, when distress has come upon him, 10 has he any confidence before him? or will [God] hear him as he calls upon him? 11 Yet now I will tell you what is in the hand of the Lord: I will not lie concerning the things which are with the Almighty. 12 Behold, ye all know that ye are adding vanity to vanity. 13 This is the portion of an ungodly man from the Lord, and the possession of oppressors shall come upon them from the Almighty. 14 And if their children be many, they shall be for slaughter: and if they grow up, they shall beg. 15 And they that survive of him shall utterly perish, and no one shall pity their widows. 16 Even if he should gather silver as earth, and prepare gold as clay; 17 All these things shall the righteous gain, and the truehearted shall possess his wealth. 18 And his house is gone like moths, and like a spider’s web. 19 The rich man shall lie down, and shall not continue: he has opened his eyes, and he is not. 20 Pains have come upon him as water, and darkness has carried him away by night. 21 And a burning wind shall catch him, and he shall depart, and it shall utterly drive him out of his place. 22 And [God] shall cast [trouble] upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand. 23 He shall cause [men] to clap their hands against them, and shall hiss him out of his place. ΕΤΙ δὲ προσθεὶς ᾿Ιὼβ εἶπε τῷ προοιμίῳ· 2 ζῇ ὁ Θεός, ὃς οὕτω με κέκρικε, καὶ ὁ Παντοκράτωρ ὁ πικράνας μου τὴν ψυχήν. 3 ἦ μὴν ἔτι τῆς πνοῆς μου ἐνούσης, πνεῦμα δὲ θεῖον τὸ περιόν μοι ἐν ῥινί, 4 μὴ λαλήσειν τὰ χείλη μου ἄνομα, οὐδὲ ἡ ψυχή μου μελετήσει ἄδικα 5 μή μοι εἴη δικαίους ὑμᾶς ἀποφῆναι, ἕως ἂν ἀποθάνω, οὐ γὰρ ἀπολλάξω μου τὴν ἀκακίαν μου. 6 δικαιοσύνῃ δὲ προσέχων οὐ μὴν προῶμαι, οὐ γὰρ σύνοιδα ἐμαυτῷ ἄτοπα πράξας. 7 οὐ μὴν δὲ ἀλλὰ εἴησαν οἱ ἐχθροί μου ὥσπερ ἡ καταστροφὴ τῶν ἀσεβῶν, καὶ οἱ ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ ἐπανιστάμενοι, ὥσπερ ἡ ἀπώλεια τῶν παρανόμων. 8 καὶ τίς γάρ ἐστιν ἐλπὶς ἀσεβεῖ ὅτι ἐπέχει; πεποιθὼς ἐπὶ Κύριον ἄρα σωθήσεται; 9 ἦ τὴν δέησιν αὐτοῦ εἰσακούσεται ὁ Θεός; ἢ ἐπελθούσης αὐτῷ ἀνάγκης 10 μὴ ἔχει τινὰ παρρησίαν ἔναντι αὐτοῦ; ἢ ὡς ἐπικαλεσαμένου αὐτοῦ εἰσακούσεται αὐτοῦ, 11 ἀλλὰ δὴ ἀναγγελῶ ὑμῖν τί ἐστιν ἐν χειρὶ Κυρίου, ἅ ἐστι παρὰ Παντοκράτορι, οὐ ψεύσομαι. 12 ἰδοὺ πάντες οἴδατε ὅτι κενὰ κενοῖς ἐπιβάλλετε. 13 αὕτη ἡ μερὶς ἀνθρώπου ἀσεβοῦς παρὰ Κυρίου, κτῆμα δὲ δυναστῶν ἐλεύσεται παρὰ Παντοκράτορος ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς. 14 ἐὰν δὲ πολλοὶ γένωνται οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ, εἰς σφαγὴν ἔσονται· ἐὰν δὲ καὶ ἀνδρωθῶσι, προσαιτήσουσιν· 15 οἱ δὲ περιόντες αὐτοῦ ἐν θανάτῳ τελευτήσουσι, χήρας δὲ αὐτῶν οὐδεὶς ἐλεήσει. 16 ἐὰν συναγάγῃ ὥσπερ γῆν ἀργύριον, ἴσα δὲ πηλῷ ἑτοιμάσῃ χρυσίον, 17 ταῦτα πάντα δίκαιοι περιποιήσονται, τὰ δὲ χρήματα αὐτοῦ ἀληθινοὶ καθέξουσιν. 18 ἀπέβη δὲ οἱ οἶκος αὐτοῦ ὥσπερ σῆτες καὶ ὥσπερ ἀράχνη. 19 πλούσιος κοιμηθήσεται καὶ οὐ προσθήσει, ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ διήνοιξε, καὶ οὐκ ἔστι. 20 συνήντησαν αὐτῷ ὥσπερ ὕδωρ αἱ ὀδύναι, νυκτὶ δὲ ὑφείλετο αὐτὸν γνόφος· 21 ἀναλήψεται δὲ αὐτὸν καύσων καὶ ἀπελεύσεται, καὶ λικμήσει αὐτὸν ἐκ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ. 22 καὶ ἐπιρρίψει ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν καὶ οὐ φείσεται, ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ φυγῇ φεύξεται. 23 κροτήσει ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ καὶ συριεῖ αὐτὸν ἐκ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ.
