Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

Job

Job 1

1.There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job. That man was perfect and upright, and he feared God and eschewed evil.

2. And there were born to him seven sons and three daughters.

3. And he owned seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she-asses, and a great many slaves. And this man was greater than any of the sons of the east.

4. And his sons went and made a feast in the house of each one on his day, and they sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.

5. It came to pass that when the days of their feasting had gone round, that Job sent and sanctified them, and he rose up early in the morning, and he offered burnt offering according to the number of them all, for Job said, “It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Job did like this all the time.

6. Now, there was a day when the sons of God came in to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

7. And the Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” And Satan answered the Lord, “From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”

8. And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and upright man, one who fears God and eschews evil?”

9. Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing?

10.Have you not made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

11.But stretch out your hand now and strike all that he has, and he will curse you to your face.”

12. Then the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not put your hand on him.” So, Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

13. Now, there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in the house of their brother, the firstborn,

14.and a messenger came to Job, and he said, “The oxen were plowing and the she-asses were grazing nearby them.

15.

16.

17.

18.

19.

20. And Job arose and tore his robe, and shaved his head, and fell to the earth, and worshipped.

21. And he said, “Naked, I came out of my mother’s womb, and naked, I will return there. Jehovah gave, and Jehovah has taken away. Blessed be the name of Jehovah!”

22. In all this, Job did not sin, nor did he charge God foolishly.

2. And the Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” And Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”

3. And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and upright man, one who fears God and eschews evil? And still, he holds fast his integrity, even though you moved me against him to destroy him without cause.”

4.And Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin, yes, all that a man has, he will give for his life.

5.Stretch out your hand now and strike his bone and his flesh, and he will curse you to your face.”

6.And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your hand. But save his life.”

7.So, Satan went out from the presence of the Lord, and he struck Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the top of his head.

8.

9. curse God and die!”

10. And he said to her, “You talk as one of the foolish women talk. What? Shall we receive good from God, and not receive evil?” In all this, Job did not sin with his lips.

4.as when I was in my strength, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle,

5.when the Almighty was still with me, when my little ones were around me,

6.when I washed my steps with cream, and the rock poured out streams of oil for me,

7.when I went out to the gate of the city, when I set up my seat in the plaza!

8.The young men saw me and withdrew themselves, and the aged rose, and stood still.

9.Princes refrained from speaking, and laid their hand on their mouth.

10.The rulers hid their voice; their tongue stuck to the roof of their mouth.

11.When the ear heard me, it blessed me, and when the eye saw me, it bore me witness,

12.because I delivered the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless, and whoever had no helper.

13.The blessing of the man about to perish came upon me, and I made the widow’s heart to cry out with joy.

15.I was eyes to the blind, and I was feet to the lame.

14. Though God speaks once, yea, twice, man does not perceive it,

15.in a dream, a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumberings on a bed.

16. Then He opens the ear of men and makes their instruction sure,

17.to turn man from his own way and hide pride from man.

18. He keeps his soul from the pit and his life from perishing by the sword.[1]

19. Or he is disciplined with pain upon his bed or with a persistent conflict in his bones,

20.so that his being loathes food, and his soul, its favorite food.

21. His flesh wastes away from sight, and his bones that were not seen appear,

22.and his soul draws near the pit, and his life, to those who put to death.

23. If there is an angel over him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show a man His uprightness,

24.then He is gracious to him and says, “Deliver him from going down to the pit! I have found a ransom.”

25. His flesh will be fresher than a child’s. He will return to the days of his youth.

26. He will pray to God, and He will accept him, and he will see His face with a shout of joy. And then, He will restore to a man his righteousness.

27. He observes men, and he says, “I sinned and perverted what is right, and it did not profit me.

28.He has redeemed my soul from going over into the pit; yea, my life will see the light.”

29. Behold, all these things God works twice, three times with man

30.to turn his soul back from the pit, that he might be enlightened by the light of the living.

31. Pay attention, Job! Listen to me! Be silent, and I will speak!

32. If there is something to say, answer me! Speak! For I would be pleased to justify you.

33. If not, then listen to me! Be silent, and I will teach you wisdom.

Job 42

1.Then Job answered the Lord and said,

2.“I know that you can do anything; not even an intent can be kept from you.

3.Who am I? Perverting counsel with ignorance, I went on, making declarations, but I have no understanding. It is not in me to comprehend things beyond my power.

4.Hear, I beg you, and I will speak! I am asking you, for you make me know.

5.I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you.

6.It makes me despise myself, and I repent in dirt and ashes.”

7. And it came to pass, after Jehovah spoke these words to Job, that Jehovah said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is kindled against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken what is right about me, as my servant Job has.”
