Your Confidence in God – Job 31

Job 31:1 I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then  should I think upon a maid? 

Job 31:2 For what portion of God  is there from above? and what inheritance of the  Almighty from on high? 

Job 31:3 Is not destruction to the  wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of  iniquity? 

Job 31:4 Doth not he see my ways, and count all my  steps? 

Job 31:5 If I have walked with vanity, or if 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 mine heart walked after  mine eyes, and if any blot hath cleaved to mine hands;  

Job 31:8 Then let me sow, and let another eat; yea, let my  offspring be rooted out. 

Job 31:9 If mine heart have been  deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my  neighbour’s door; 

Job 31:10 Then let my wife grind unto  another, and let others bow down upon her. 

Job 31:11 For this  is an heinous crime; yea, it is an iniquity to be punished  by the judges. 

Job 31:12 For it is a fire that consumeth to  destruction, and would root out all mine increase. 

Job 31:13 If  I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my  maidservant, 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 myself alone, and the  fatherless hath not eaten thereof; 

Job 31:18 (For from my  youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I  have guided her from my mother’s womb;) 

Job 31:19 If I  have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor  without covering; 

Job 31:20 If his loins have not blessed me,  and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;  

Job 31:21 If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless,  when I saw my help in the gate: 

Job 31:22 Then let mine  arm fall from my shoulder blade, and mine arm be broken  from the bone. 

Job 31:23 For destruction from God was a  terror to me, and by reason of his highness I could not  endure. 

Job 31:24 If I have made gold my hope, or have said  to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence; 

Job 31:25 If I  rejoiced because my wealth was great, and because mine  hand had gotten much; 

Job 31:26 If I beheld the sun when it  shined, or the moon walking in brightness; 

Job 31:27 And  my heart hath been secretly enticed, or my mouth hath  kissed my hand: 

Job 31:28 This also were an iniquity to be  punished by the judge: for I should have denied the 
God  that is above. 

Job 31:29 If I rejoiced at the destruction of  him that hated me, or lifted up myself when evil found him:   

Job 31:30 Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing  a curse to his soul. 

Job 31:31 If the men of my tabernacle said  not, Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied.  

Job 31:32 The stranger did not lodge in the street: but I  opened my doors to the traveller. 

Job 31:33 If I covered my  transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my  bosom: 

Job 31:34 Did I fear a great multitude, or did the  contempt of families terrify me, that I kept silence, and  went not out of the door? 

Job 31:35 Oh that one would hear  me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer  me, and that mine adversary had written a book. 

Job 31:36  Surely I would take it upon my shoulder, and bind it as a  crown to me. 

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 cry against me, or that the furrows likewise  thereof complain; 

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.  KJV
