Job 27
New American Standard Bible 1995Hebrew Study Bible
1Then Job continued his discourse and said,1וַיֹּ֣סֶף אִ֭יּוֹב שְׂאֵ֥ת מְשָׁל֗וֹ וַיֹּאמַֽר׃
2"As God lives, who has taken away my right, And the Almighty, who has embittered my soul,2חַי־ אֵ֭ל הֵסִ֣יר מִשְׁפָּטִ֑י וְ֝שַׁדַּ֗י הֵמַ֥ר נַפְשִֽׁי׃
3For as long as life is in me, And the breath of God is in my nostrils,3כִּֽי־ כָל־ ע֣וֹד נִשְׁמָתִ֣י בִ֑י וְר֖וּחַ אֱל֣וֹהַּ בְּאַפִּֽי׃
4My lips certainly will not speak unjustly, Nor will my tongue mutter deceit.4אִם־ תְּדַבֵּ֣רְנָה שְׂפָתַ֣י עַוְלָ֑ה וּ֝לְשׁוֹנִ֗י אִם־ יֶהְגֶּ֥ה רְמִיָּֽה׃
5"Far be it from me that I should declare you right; Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.5חָלִ֣ילָה לִּי֮ אִם־ אַצְדִּ֪יק אֶ֫תְכֶ֥ם עַד־ אֶגְוָ֑ע לֹא־ אָסִ֖יר תֻּמָּתִ֣י מִמֶּֽנִּי׃
6"I hold fast my righteousness and will not let it go. My heart does not reproach any of my days.6בְּצִדְקָתִ֣י הֶ֭חֱזַקְתִּי וְלֹ֣א אַרְפֶּ֑הָ לֹֽא־ יֶחֱרַ֥ף לְ֝בָבִ֗י מִיָּמָֽי׃
7"May my enemy be as the wicked And my opponent as the unjust.7יְהִ֣י כְ֭רָשָׁע אֹ֣יְבִ֑י וּמִתְקוֹמְמִ֥י כְעַוָּֽל׃
8"For what is the hope of the godless when he is cut off, When God requires his life?8כִּ֤י מַה־ תִּקְוַ֣ת חָ֭נֵף כִּ֣י יִבְצָ֑ע כִּ֤י יֵ֖שֶׁל אֱל֣וֹהַּ נַפְשֽׁוֹ׃
9"Will God hear his cry When distress comes upon him?9הַֽ֭צַעֲקָתוֹ יִשְׁמַ֥ע ׀ אֵ֑ל כִּֽי־ תָב֖וֹא עָלָ֣יו צָרָֽה׃
10"Will he take delight in the Almighty? Will he call on God at all times?10אִם־ עַל־ שַׁדַּ֥י יִתְעַנָּ֑ג יִקְרָ֖א אֱל֣וֹהַּ בְּכָל־ עֵֽת׃
11"I will instruct you in the power of God; What is with the Almighty I will not conceal.11אוֹרֶ֣ה אֶתְכֶ֣ם בְּיַד־ אֵ֑ל אֲשֶׁ֥ר עִם־ שַׁ֝דַּ֗י לֹ֣א אֲכַחֵֽד׃
12"Behold, all of you have seen it; Why then do you act foolishly?12הֵן־ אַתֶּ֣ם כֻּלְּכֶ֣ם חֲזִיתֶ֑ם וְלָמָּה־ זֶּ֝֗ה הֶ֣בֶל תֶּהְבָּֽלוּ׃
13"This is the portion of a wicked man from God, And the inheritance which tyrants receive from the Almighty.13זֶ֤ה ׀ חֵֽלֶק־ אָדָ֖ם רָשָׁ֥ע ׀ עִם־ אֵ֑ל וְֽנַחֲלַ֥ת עָ֝רִיצִ֗ים מִשַּׁדַּ֥י יִקָּֽחוּ׃
14"Though his sons are many, they are destined for the sword; And his descendants will not be satisfied with bread.14אִם־ יִרְבּ֣וּ בָנָ֣יו לְמוֹ־ חָ֑רֶב וְ֝צֶאֱצָאָ֗יו לֹ֣א יִשְׂבְּעוּ־ לָֽחֶם׃
15"His survivors will be buried because of the plague, And their widows will not be able to weep.15[שרידו] (שְׂ֭רִידָיו) בַּמָּ֣וֶת יִקָּבֵ֑רוּ וְ֝אַלְמְנֹתָ֗יו לֹ֣א תִבְכֶּֽינָה׃
16"Though he piles up silver like dust And prepares garments as plentiful as the clay,16אִם־ יִצְבֹּ֣ר כֶּעָפָ֣ר כָּ֑סֶף וְ֝כַחֹ֗מֶר יָכִ֥ין מַלְבּֽוּשׁ׃
17He may prepare it, but the just will wear it And the innocent will divide the silver.17יָ֭כִין וְצַדִּ֣יק יִלְבָּ֑שׁ וְ֝כֶ֗סֶף נָקִ֥י יַחֲלֹֽק׃
18"He has built his house like the spider's web, Or as a hut which the watchman has made.18בָּנָ֣ה כָעָ֣שׁ בֵּית֑וֹ וּ֝כְסֻכָּ֗ה עָשָׂ֥ה נֹצֵֽר׃
19"He lies down rich, but never again; He opens his eyes, and it is no longer.19עָשִׁ֣יר יִ֭שְׁכַּב וְלֹ֣א יֵאָסֵ֑ף עֵינָ֖יו פָּקַ֣ח וְאֵינֶֽנּוּ׃
20"Terrors overtake him like a flood; A tempest steals him away in the night.20תַּשִּׂיגֵ֣הוּ כַ֭מַּיִם בַּלָּה֑וֹת לַ֝֗יְלָה גְּנָבַ֥תּוּ סוּפָֽה׃
21"The east wind carries him away, and he is gone, For it whirls him away from his place.21יִשָּׂאֵ֣הוּ קָדִ֣ים וְיֵלַ֑ךְ וִֽ֝ישָׂעֲרֵ֗הוּ מִמְּקֹמֽוֹ׃
22"For it will hurl at him without sparing; He will surely try to flee from its power.22וְיַשְׁלֵ֣ךְ עָ֭לָיו וְלֹ֣א יַחְמֹ֑ל מִ֝יָּד֗וֹ בָּר֥וֹחַ יִבְרָֽח׃
23"Men will clap their hands at him And will hiss him from his place.23יִשְׂפֹּ֣ק עָלֵ֣ימוֹ כַפֵּ֑ימוֹ וְיִשְׁרֹ֥ק עָ֝לָ֗יו מִמְּקֹמֽוֹ׃
