| Job 24 - Versions
| Job 24 Text (WEB)
- "Why aren't times laid up by the Almighty? Why don't those who know him see his days?
- There are people who remove the landmarks. They violently take away flocks, and feed them.
- They drive away the donkey of the fatherless, and they take the widow's ox for a pledge.
- They turn the needy out of the way. The poor of the earth all hide themselves.
- Behold, as wild donkeys in the desert, they go forth to their work, seeking diligently for food. The wilderness yields them bread for their children.
- They cut their provender in the field. They glean the vineyard of the wicked.
- They lie all night naked without clothing, and have no covering in the cold.
- They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for lack of a shelter.
- There are those who pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor,
- So that they go around naked without clothing. Being hungry, they carry the sheaves.
- They make oil within the walls of these men. They tread wine presses, and suffer thirst.
- From out of the populous city, men groan. The soul of the wounded cries out, yet God doesn't regard the folly.
- "These are of those who rebel against the light. They don't know its ways, nor stay in its paths.
- The murderer rises with the light. He kills the poor and needy. In the night he is like a thief.
- The eye also of the adulterer waits for the twilight, saying, 'No eye shall see me.' He disguises his face.
- In the dark they dig through houses. They shut themselves up in the daytime. They don't know the light.
- For the morning is to all of them like thick darkness, for they know the terrors of the thick darkness.
- "They are foam on the surface of the waters. Their portion is cursed in the earth. They don't turn into the way of the vineyards.
- Drought and heat consume the snow waters, so does Sheol those who have sinned.
- The womb shall forget him. The worm shall feed sweetly on him. He shall be no more remembered. Unrighteousness shall be broken as a tree.
- He devours the barren who don't bear. He shows no kindness to the widow.
- Yet God preserves the mighty by his power. He rises up who has no assurance of life.
- God gives them security, and they rest in it. His eyes are on their ways.
- They are exalted; yet a little while, and they are gone. Yes, they are brought low, they are taken out of the way as all others, and are cut off as the tops of the ears of grain.
- If it isn't so now, who will prove me a liar, and make my speech worth nothing?"
| Job 24 Text (Hebrew)
- מדוע משדי לא־נצפנו עתים לא־חזו ימיו׃
- גבלות ישיגו עדר גזלו וירעו׃
- חמור יתומים ינהגו יחבלו שור אלמנה׃
- יטו אביונים מדרך יחד חבאו עניי־ארץ׃
- הן פראים במדבר יצאו בפעלם משחרי לטרף ערבה לו לחם לנערים׃
- בשדה בלילו וכרם רשע ילקשו׃
- ערום ילינו מבלי לבוש ואין כסות בקרה׃
- מזרם הרים ירטבו ומבלי מחסה חבקו־צור׃
- יגזלו משד יתום ועל־עני יחבלו׃
- ערום הלכו בלי לבוש ורעבים נשאו עמר׃
- בין־שורתם יצהירו יקבים דרכו ויצמאו׃
- מעיר מתים ינאקו ונפש־חללים תשוע ואלוה לא־ישים תפלה׃
- המה היו במרדי־אור לא־הכירו דרכיו ולא ישבו בנתיבתיו׃
- לאור יקום רוצח יקטל־עני ואביון ובלילה יהי כגנב׃
- ועין נאף שמרה נשף לאמר לא־תשורני עין וסתר פנים ישים׃
- חתר בחשך בתים יוםם חתמו־למו לא־ידעו אור׃
- כי יחדו בקר למו צלמות כי־יכיר בלהות צלמות׃
- קל־הוא על־פני־מים תקלל חלקתם בארץ לא־יפנה דרך כרמים׃
- ציה גם־חם יגזלו מימי־שלג שאול חטאו׃
- ישכחהו רחם מתקו רמה עוד לא־יזכר ותשבר כעץ עולה׃
- רעה עקרה לא תלד ואלמנה לא ייטיב׃
- ומשך אבירים בכחו יקום ולא־יאמין בחיין׃
- יתן־לו לבטח וישען ועיניהו על־דרכיהם׃
- רומו מעט ואיננו והמכו ככל יקפצון וכראש שבלת ימלו׃
- ואם־לא אפו מי יכזיבני וישם לאל מלתי׃ ס
| Job 24 Text (Latin)
- Ab Omnipotente non sunt abscondita tempora : qui autem noverunt eum, ignorant dies illius.
- Alii terminos transtulerunt, diripuerunt greges, et paverunt eos.
- Asinum pupillorum abegerunt, et abstulerunt pro pignore bovem viduæ.
- Subverterunt pauperum viam, et oppresserunt pariter mansuetos terræ.
- Alii quasi onagri in deserto egrediuntur ad opus suum : vigilantes ad prædam, præparant panem liberis.
- Agrum non suum demetunt, et vineam ejus, quem vi oppresserint, vindemiant.
- Nudos dimittunt homines, indumenta tollentes, quibus non est operimentum in frigore :
- quos imbres montium rigant, et non habentes velamen, amplexantur lapides.
- Vim fecerunt deprædantes pupillos, et vulgum pauperem spoliaverunt.
- Nudis et incedentibus absque vestitu, et esurientibus tulerunt spicas.
- Inter acervos eorum meridiati sunt, qui calcatis torcularibus sitiunt.
- De civitatibus fecerunt viros gemere, et anima vulneratorum clamavit : et Deus inultum abire non patitur.
- Ipsi fuerunt rebelles lumini : nescierunt vias ejus, nec reversi sunt per semitas ejus.
- Mane primo consurgit homicida, interficit egenum et pauperem : per noctem vero erit quasi fur.
- Oculus adulteri observat caliginem, dicens : Non me videbit oculus : et operiet vultum suum.
- Perfodit in tenebris domos, sicut in die condixerant sibi, et ignoraverunt lucem.
- Si subito apparuerit aurora, arbitrantur umbram mortis : et sic in tenebris quasi in luce ambulant.
- Levis est super faciem aquæ : maledicta sit pars ejus in terra, nec ambulet per viam vinearum.
- Ad nimium calorem transeat ab aquis nivium, et usque ad inferos peccatum illius.
- Obliviscatur ejus misericordia, dulcedo illius vermes : non sit in recordatione, sed conteratur quasi lignum infructuosum.
- Pavit enim sterilem quæ non parit, et viduæ bene non fecit.
- Detraxit fortes in fortitudine sua, et cum steterit, non credet vitæ suæ.
- Dedit ei Deus locum pœnitentiæ, et ille abutitur eo in superbiam : oculi autem ejus sunt in viis illius.
- Elevati sunt ad modicum, et non subsistent : et humiliabuntur sicut omnia, et auferentur, et sicut summitates spicarum conterentur.
- Quod si non est ita, quis me potest arguere esse mentitum, et ponere ante Deum verba mea ?
| Job 24 Text (KJV)
- Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
- Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.
- They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge.
- They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.
- Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.
- They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.
- They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.
- They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.
- They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.
- They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;
- Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst.
- Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them.
- They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
- The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.
- The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face.
- In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.
- For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.
- He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.
- Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned.
- The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.
- He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.
- He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life.
- Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways.
- They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.
- And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth?
