JOB 32
1: So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes.
2: Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the kindred of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God.
3: Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.
4: Now Elihu had waited till Job had spoken, because they were elder than he.
5: When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.
6: And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion.
7: I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.
8: But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.
9: Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.
10: Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will shew mine opinion.
11: Behold, I waited for your words; I gave ear to your reasons, whilst ye searched out what to say.
12: Yea, I attended unto you, and, behold, there was none of you that convinced Job, or that answered his words:
13: Lest ye should say, We have found out wisdom: God thrusteth him down, not man.
14: Now he hath not directed his words against me: neither will I answer him with your speeches.
15: They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking.
16: When I had waited, (for they spake not, but stood still, and answered no more;)
17: I said, I will answer also my part, I also will shew mine opinion.
18: For I am full of matter, the spirit within me constraineth me.
19: Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.
20: I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.
21: Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man.
22: For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.


JOB 33
1: Wherefore, Job, I pray thee, hear my speeches, and hearken to all my words.
2: Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.
3: My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
4: The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
5: If thou canst answer me, set thy words in order before me, stand up.
6: Behold, I am according to thy wish in God's stead: I also am formed out of the clay.
7: Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall my hand be heavy upon thee.
8: Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words, saying,
9: I am clean without transgression, I am innocent; neither is there iniquity in me.
10: Behold, he findeth occasions against me, he counteth me for his enemy,
11: He putteth my feet in the stocks, he marketh all my paths.
12: Behold, in this thou art not just: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.
13: Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.
14: For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
15: In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
16: Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,
17: That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
18: He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
19: He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:
20: So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.
21: His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.
22: Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.
23: If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:
24: Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.
25: His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:
26: He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.
27: He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;
28: He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.
29: Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,
30: To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.
31: Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I will speak.
32: If thou hast anything to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify thee.
33: If not, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I shall teach thee wisdom.


2 TIMOTHY 3
1: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2: For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3: Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4: Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5: Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6: For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7: Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8: Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9: But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was.
10: But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11: Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12: Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13: But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14: But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15: And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
