The Heritage of your Oppressors - Job 27

Job 27:1 Moreover Job continued his parable, and said,  

Job 27:2 As God liveth, who hath taken away my  judgment; and the Almighty, who hath vexed my soul;  

Job 27:3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of  God is in my nostrils; 

Job 27:4 My lips shall not speak  wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. 

Job 27:5 God forbid  that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine  integrity from me. 


Job 27:6 My righteousness I hold fast, and  will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long  as I live. 

Job 27:7 Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he  that riseth up against me as the unrighteous. 

Job 27:8 For  what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained,  when God taketh away his soul? 

Job 27:9 Will God hear his  cry when trouble cometh upon him? 

Job 27:10 Will he delight  himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?    

Job 27:11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which  is with the Almighty will I not conceal. 

Job 27:12 Behold,  all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye thus  altogether vain? 

Job 27:13 This is the portion of a wicked  man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they  shall receive of the Almighty. 

Job 27:14 If his children be  multiplied, it is for the sword: and his offspring shall not  be satisfied with bread. 

Job 27:15 Those that remain of him  shall be buried in death: and his widows shall not weep.  

Job 27:16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare  raiment as the clay; 

Job 27:17 He may prepare it, but the  just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.  

Job 27:18 He buildeth his house as a moth, and as a booth  that the keeper maketh. 

Job 27:19 The rich man shall lie  down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and  he is not. 

Job 27:20 Terrors take hold on him as waters, a  tempest stealeth him away in the night. 

Job 27:21 The east  wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm  hurleth him out of his place. 

Job 27:22 For God shall cast  upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.  

Job 27:23 Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss  him out of his place. KJV
