The book of Job, chapter 13, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 13


   1 Ecce, omnia haec vidit oculus meus, et audivit auris mea, et intellexi singula.
   2 Secundum scientiam vestram, et ego novi; nec inferior vestri sum.
   3 Sed tamen ad Omnipotentem loquar et disputare cum Deo cupio;
   4 vos autem ostendam fabricatores mendacii, medicos vanos vos omnes.
   5 Atque utinam taceretis, ut sit vobis in sapientiam!
   6 Audite ergo correptionem meam et contentiones labiorum meorum attendite.
   7 Numquid pro Deo profertis mendacium et pro illo loquimini dolos?
   8 Numquid faciem eius accipitis et pro Deo in iudicio contendere nitimini?
   9 Aut bonum est quod vos excutiat? Aut, ut illuditur homini, illudetis ei?
   10 Ipse vos arguet, cum in abscondito faciem accipitis.
   11 Nonne maiestas eius turbabit vos, et terror eius irruet super vos?
   12 Sententiae vestrae sunt proverbia cineris; thoraces lutei thoraces vestri.
   13 Tacete paulisper, ut loquar ipse, et transeat super me quodcumque.
   14 Quare sumam carnes meas dentibus meis et animam meam ponam in manibus meis?
   15 Etiamsi occiderit me, in ipso sperabo; verumtamen vias meas in conspectu eius arguam.
   16 Et hoc erit salus mea: non enim veniet in conspectu eius omnis impius.
   17 Audite sermonem meum et explicationem meam percipite auribus vestris.
   18 Ecce iudicium paravi; scio quod iustus inveniar.
   19 Quis est qui contendat mecum? Tunc enim tacebo et consummabor.
   20 Duo tantum ne facias mihi, et tunc a facie tua non abscondar:
   21 Manum tuam longe fac a me, et formido tua non me terreat.
   22 Voca me, et ego respondebo tibi; aut ipse loquar, et tu respondebis mihi.
   23 Quantas habeo iniquitates et peccata? Scelera mea et delicta ostende mihi.
   24 Cur faciem tuam abscondis et arbitraris me inimicum tuum?
   25 Contra folium, quod vento rapitur, dure agis et stipulam siccam persequeris.
   26 Scribis enim contra me amaritudines et occupatum me vis peccatis adulescentiae meae.
   27 Posuisti in nervo pedem meum et observasti omnes semitas meas et vestigia pedum meorum considerasti.
   28 Qui quasi uter consumendus sum, et quasi vestimentum, quod comeditur a tinea.

King James Version

   1 Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it.
   2 What ye know, the same do I know also: I am not inferior unto you.
   3 Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.
   4 But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value.
   5 O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.
   6 Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.
   7 Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?
   8 Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?
   9 Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him?
   10 He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons.
   11 Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall upon you?
   12 Your remembrances are like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.
   13 Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will.
   14 Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?
   15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
   16 He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.
   17 Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.
   18 Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.
   19 Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.
   20 Only do not two things unto me: then will I not hide myself from thee.
   21 Withdraw thine hand far from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid.
   22 Then call thou, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer thou me.
   23 How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.
   24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy?
   25 Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?
   26 For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.
   27 Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.
   28 And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.
