The King James Version Bible

Job 22:10-19

  1. Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden fear troubleth thee;

  2. Or darkness, that thou canst not see; and abundance of waters cover thee.

  3. Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!

  4. And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud?

  5. Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.

  6. Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?

  7. Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood:

  8. Which said unto God, Depart from us: and what can the Almighty do for them?

  9. Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

  10. The righteous see it, and are glad: and the innocent laugh them to scorn.
