1833 Webster's Revision of the KJB (WEB)
1 Job sheweth that even in the judgment of man he hath reason to be grieved. 7 Sometimes the wicked do so prosper, and they despise God. 16 Sometimes their destruction is manifest. 22 The happy and unhappy are alike in death. 27 The judgment of the wicked is in another world.

21:6 Even when I remember I am afraid, and trembling taketh hold on my flesh.

21:8 Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.

21:12 They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ.
21:13 They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.
21:14 Therefore they say to God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.
21:15 What [is] the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray to him?
21:16 Lo, their good [is] not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
21:17 How oft is the candle of the wicked put out? and [how oft] cometh their destruction upon them? [God] distributeth sorrows in his anger.
21:18 They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.
21:19 God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know [it].
21:20 His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
21:21 For what pleasure [hath] he in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off in the midst?
21:22 Shall [any] teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.

21:24 His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow.
21:25 And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.
21:26 They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them.
21:27 Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices [which] ye wrongfully imagine against me.
21:28 For ye say, Where [is] the house of the prince? and where [are] the dwelling places of the wicked?
21:29 Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,
21:30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they will be brought forth to the day of wrath.
21:31 Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him [what] he hath done?
21:32 Yet he shall be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.
21:33 The clods of the valley will be sweet to him, and every man will draw after him, as [there are] innumerable before him.
21:34 How then comfort ye me in vain, seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?
