The Tabernacles of Robbers Prosper in Life - Job 12

Job 12:1 And Job answered and said, 

Job 12:2 No doubt but  ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you. 

Job 12:3  But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior  to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these? 

Job 12:4 I  am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon  God, and he answereth him: the just upright man is  laughed to scorn. 

Job 12:5 He that is ready to slip with his  feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at  ease. 

Job 12:6 The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they  that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth  abundantly. 


Job 12:7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall  teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:  

Job 12:8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the  fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. 

Job 12:9 Who  knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath  wrought this? 

Job 12:10 In whose hand is the soul of every  living thing, and the breath of all mankind. 

Job 12:11 Doth  not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?  

Job 12:12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days  understanding. 

Job 12:13 With him is wisdom and strength,  he hath counsel and understanding. 

Job 12:14 Behold, he  breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a  man, and there can be no opening. 

Job 12:15 Behold, he  withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth  them out, and they overturn the earth. 

Job 12:16 With him is  strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are  his.

Job 12:19 He  leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.  

Job 12:20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and  taketh away the understanding of 
the aged. 

Job 12:21 He  poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength  of the mighty. 

Job 12:22 He discovereth deep things out of  darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.  

Job 12:23 He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he  enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again. 

Job 12:24  He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the  earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where  there is no way. 

Job 12:25 They grope in the dark without  light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man. KJV
