Job Chapter 8 - American Standard Version

1
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
2
How long wilt thou speak these things? And [how long] shall the words of thy mouth be [like] a mighty wind?
3
Doth God pervert justice? Or doth the Almighty pervert righteousness?
4
If thy children have sinned against him, And he hath delivered them into the hand of their transgression;
5
If thou wouldest seek diligently unto God, And make thy supplication to the Almighty;
6
If thou wert pure and upright: Surely now he would awake for thee, And make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
7
And though thy beginning was small, Yet thy latter end would greatly increase.
8
For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, And apply thyself to that which their fathers have searched out:
9
(For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, Because our days upon earth are a shadow);
10
Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, And utter words out of their heart?
11
Can the rush grow up without mire? Can the flag grow without water?
12
Whilst it is yet in its greenness, [and] not cut down, It withereth before any [other] herb.
13
So are the paths of all that forget God; And the hope of the godless man shall perish:
14
Whose confidence shall break in sunder, And whose trust is a spider`s web.
15
He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: He shall hold fast thereby, but it shall not endure.
16
He is green before the sun, And his shoots go forth over his garden.
17
His roots are wrapped about the [stone] -heap, He beholdeth the place of stones.
18
If he be destroyed from his place, Then it shall deny him, [saying], I have not seen thee.
19
Behold, this is the joy of his way; And out of the earth shall others spring.
20
Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, Neither will he uphold the evil-doers.
21
He will yet fill thy mouth with laughter, And thy lips with shouting.
22
They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; And the tent of the wicked shall be no more.

Daily Golden Verse

2nd Chronicles 20:15-17
[20:15] and he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat: Thus saith Jehovah unto you, Fear not ye, neither be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God`s. [20:16] To-morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the ascent of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the valley, before the wilderness of Jeruel. [20:17] Ye shall not need to fight in this [battle]: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of Jehovah with you, O Judah and Jerusalem; fear not, nor be dismayed: to-morrow go out against them: for Jehovah is with you.
