Bible: Job 31:1-12
Job Vindicates Himself
31:1 “I made a covenant with 1 my eyes;
how then could I entertain thoughts against a virgin? 2
31:2 What then would be one’s lot from God above,
one’s heritage from the Almighty 3 on high?
31:3 Is it not misfortune for the unjust,
and disaster for those who work iniquity?
31:4 Does he not see my ways
and count all my steps?
31:5 If 4 I have walked in falsehood,
then God will discover 9 my integrity.
31:7 If my footsteps have strayed from the way,
if my heart has gone after my eyes, 10
or if anything 11 has defiled my hands,
31:8 then let me sow 12 and let another eat,
and let my crops 13 be uprooted.
31:9 If my heart has been enticed by a woman,
and I have lain in wait at my neighbor’s door, 14
31:10 then let my wife turn the millstone 15 for another man,
and may other men have sexual relations with her. 16
an iniquity to be judged. 19
31:12 For it is a fire that devours even to Destruction, 20
and it would uproot 21 all my harvest.
