1 Job again took up his parable, and said,

1 וַיֹּ֣סֶף אִ֭יֹּוב שְׂאֵ֥ת מְשָׁלֹ֗ו וַיֹּאמַֽר׃

2 "As God lives, who has taken away my right, The Almighty, who has made my soul bitter.

2 חַי־אֵ֭ל הֵסִ֣יר מִשְׁפָּטִ֑י וְ֝שַׁדַּ֗י הֵמַ֥ר נַפְשִֽׁי׃

3 (For the length of my life is still in me, And the spirit of God is in my nostrils);

3 כִּֽי־כָל־עֹ֣וד נִשְׁמָתִ֣י בִ֑י וְר֖וּחַ אֱלֹ֣והַּ בְּאַפִּֽי׃

4 Surely my lips shall not speak unrighteousness, Neither shall my tongue utter deceit.

4 אִם־תְּדַבֵּ֣רְנָה שְׂפָתַ֣י עַוְלָ֑ה וּ֝לְשֹׁונִ֗י אִם־יֶהְגֶּ֥ה רְמִיָּֽה׃

5 Far be it from me that I should justify you. Until I die I will not put away my integrity from me.

5 חָלִ֣ילָה לִּי֮ אִם־אַצְדִּ֪יק אֶ֫תְכֶ֥ם עַד־אֶגְוָ֑ע לֹא־אָסִ֖יר תֻּמָּתִ֣י מִמֶּֽנִּי׃

6 I hold fast to my righteousness, and will not let it go. My heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

6 בְּצִדְקָתִ֣י הֶ֭חֱזַקְתִּי וְלֹ֣א אַרְפֶּ֑הָ לֹֽא־יֶחֱרַ֥ף לְ֝בָבִ֗י מִיָּמָֽי׃

7 "Let my enemy be as the wicked, Let him who rises up against me be as the unrighteous.

7 יְהִ֣י כְ֭רָשָׁע אֹ֣יְבִ֑י וּמִתְקֹומְמִ֥י כְעַוָּֽל׃

8 For what is the hope of the godless, when he is cut off, When God takes away his life?

8 כִּ֤י מַה־תִּקְוַ֣ת חָ֭נֵף כִּ֣י יִבְצָ֑ע כִּ֤י יֵ֖שֶׁל אֱלֹ֣והַּ נַפְשֹֽׁו׃

9 Will God hear his cry, When trouble comes on him?

9 הַֽ֭צַעֲקָתֹו יִשְׁמַ֥ע׀ אֵ֑ל כִּֽי־תָבֹ֖וא עָלָ֣יו צָרָֽה׃

10 Will he delight himself in the Almighty, And call on God at all times?

10 אִם־עַל־שַׁדַּ֥י יִתְעַנָּ֑ג יִקְרָ֖א אֱלֹ֣והַּ בְּכָל־עֵֽת׃

11 I will teach you about the hand of God. That which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.

11 אֹורֶ֣ה אֶתְכֶ֣ם בְּיַד־אֵ֑ל אֲשֶׁ֥ר עִםשַ֝־דַּ֗י לֹ֣א אֲכַחֵֽד׃

12 Behold, all of you have seen it yourselves; Why then have you become altogether vain?

12 הֵן־אַתֶּ֣ם כֻּלְּכֶ֣ם חֲזִיתֶ֑ם וְלָמָּה־זֶּ֝֗ה הֶ֣בֶל תֶּהְבָּֽלוּ׃

13 "This is the portion of a wicked man with God, The heritage of oppressors, which they receive from the Almighty.

13 זֶ֤ה׀ חֵֽלֶק־אָדָ֖ם רָשָׁ֥ע׀ עִם־אֵ֑ל וְֽנַחֲלַ֥ת עָ֝רִיצִ֗ים מִשַּׁדַּ֥י יִקָּֽחוּ׃

14 If his children are multiplied, it is for the sword. His offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.

14 אִם־יִרְבּ֣וּ בָנָ֣יו לְמֹו־חָ֑רֶב וְ֝צֶאֱצָאָ֗יו לֹ֣א יִשְׂבְּעוּ־לָֽחֶם׃

15 Those who remain of him shall be buried in death. His widows shall make no lamentation.

15 שְׂרִידֹו רִידָיו בַּמָּ֣וֶת יִקָּבֵ֑רוּ וְ֝אַלְמְנֹתָ֗יו לֹ֣א תִבְכֶּֽינָה׃

16 Though he heap up silver as the dust, And prepare clothing as the clay;

16 אִם־יִצְבֹּ֣ר כֶּעָפָ֣ר כָּ֑סֶף וְ֝כַחֹ֗מֶר יָכִ֥ין מַלְבּֽוּשׁ׃

17 He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, And the innocent shall divide the silver.

17 יָ֭כִין וְצַדִּ֣יק יִלְבָּ֑שׁ וְ֝כֶ֗סֶף נָקִ֥י יַחֲלֹֽק׃

18 He builds his house as the moth, As a booth which the watchman makes.

18 בָּנָ֣ה כָעָ֣שׁ בֵּיתֹ֑ו וּ֝כְסֻכָּ֗ה עָשָׂ֥ה נֹצֵֽר׃

19 He lies down rich, but he shall not do so again. He opens his eyes, and he is not.

19 עָשִׁ֣יר יִ֭שְׁכַּב וְלֹ֣א יֵאָסֵ֑ף עֵינָ֖יו פָּקַ֣ח וְאֵינֶֽנּוּ׃

20 Terrors overtake him like waters; A tempest steals him away in the night.

20 תַּשִּׂיגֵ֣הוּ3 כַ֭מַּיִם בַּלָּהֹ֑ות לַ֝֗יְלָה גְּנָבַ֥תּוּ סוּפָֽה׃

21 The east wind carries him away, and he departs; It sweeps him out of his place.

21 יִשָּׂאֵ֣הוּ קָדִ֣ים וְיֵלַ֑ךְ וִֽ֝ישָׂעֲרֵ֗הוּ מִמְּקֹמֹֽו׃

22 For it hurls at him, and does not spare, As he flees away from his hand.

22 וְיַשְׁלֵ֣ךְ עָ֭לָיו וְלֹ֣א יַחְמֹ֑ל מִ֝יָּדֹ֗ו בָּרֹ֥וחַ יִבְרָֽח׃

23 Men shall clap their hands at him, And shall hiss him out of his place.

23 יִשְׂפֹּ֣ק עָלֵ֣ימֹו כַפֵּ֑ימֹו וְיִשְׁרֹ֥ק עָ֝לָ֗יו מִמְּקֹמֹֽו׃
