Job 31

Job 31:1   I made a covenant with mine eyes; How then should I look upon a virgin?
Job 31:2   For what is the portion from God above, And the heritage from the Almighty on high?
Job 31:3   Is it not calamity to the unrighteous, And disaster to the workers of iniquity?
Job 31:4   Doth not he see my ways, And number all my steps?
Job 31:5   If I have walked with falsehood, And my foot hath hasted to deceit;
Job 31:6   (Let me be weighed in an even balance, That God may know mine integrity);
Job 31:7   If my step hath turned out of the way, And my heart walked after mine eyes, And if any spot hath cleaved to my hands:
Job 31:8   Then let me sow, and let another eat; Yea, let the produce of my field be rooted out.
Job 31:9   If my heart hath been enticed unto a woman, And I have laid wait at my neighbor's door;
Job 31:10   Then let my wife grind unto another, And let others bow down upon her.
Job 31:11   For that were a heinous crime; Yea, it were an iniquity to be punished by the judges:
Job 31:12   For it is a fire that consumeth unto Destruction, And would root out all mine increase.
Job 31:13   If I have despised the cause of my man-servant or of my maid-servant, When they contended with me;
Job 31:14   What then shall I do when God riseth up? And when he visiteth, what shall I answer him?
Job 31:15   Did not he that made me in the womb make him? And did not one fashion us in the womb?
Job 31:16   If I have withheld the poor from their desire, Or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail,
Job 31:17   Or have eaten my morsel alone, And the fatherless hath not eaten thereof;
Job 31:18   (Nay, from my youth he grew up with me as with a father, And her have I guided from my mother's womb);
Job 31:19   If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, Or that the needy had no covering;
Job 31:20   If his loins have not blessed me, And if he hath not been warmed with the fleece of my sheep;
Job 31:21   If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, Because I saw my help in the gate:
Job 31:22   Then let my shoulder fall from the shoulder-blade, And mine arm be broken from the bone.
Job 31:23   For calamity from God is a terror to me, And by reason of his majesty I can do nothing.
Job 31:24   If I have made gold my hope, And have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence;
Job 31:25   If I have rejoiced because my wealth was great, And because my hand had gotten much;
Job 31:26   If I have beheld the sun when it shined, Or the moon walking in brightness,
Job 31:27   And my heart hath been secretly enticed, And my mouth hath kissed my hand:
Job 31:28   This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judges; For I should have denied the God that is above.
Job 31:29   If I have rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me, Or lifted up myself when evil found him;
Job 31:30   (Yea, I have not suffered by mouth to sin By asking his life with a curse);
Job 31:31   If the men of my tent have not said, Who can find one that hath not been filled with his meat?
Job 31:32   (The sojourner hath not lodged in the street; But I have opened my doors to the traveller);
Job 31:33   If like Adam I have covered my transgressions, By hiding mine iniquity in my bosom,
Job 31:34   Because I feared the great multitude, And the contempt of families terrified me, So that I kept silence, and went not out of the door-
Job 31:35   Oh that I had one to hear me! (Lo, here is my signature, let the Almighty answer me); And that I had the indictment which mine adversary hath written!
Job 31:36   Surely I would carry it upon my shoulder; I would bind it unto me as a crown:
Job 31:37   I would declare unto him the number of my steps; As a prince would I go near unto him.
Job 31:38   If my land crieth out against me, And the furrows thereof weep together;
Job 31:39   If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, Or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life:
Job 31:40   Let thistles grow instead of wheat, And cockle instead of barley. The words of Job are ended.
