At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make thee an ark of wood.
 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark.
 And I made an ark of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in mine hand.
 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me.
 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me.
 And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of the children of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest’s office in his stead.
 From thence they journeyed unto Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters.
 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day.
 Wherefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren; the LORD is his inheritance, according as the LORD thy God promised him.
 And I stayed in the mount, according to the first time, forty days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also, and the LORD would not destroy thee.
 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, take thy journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give unto them.
 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
 To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?
 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD’s thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.
 Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day.
 Then Job answered and said,
 How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?
 These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.
 And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.
 If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach:
 Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.
 Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.
 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.
 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.
 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.
 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.
 They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.
 I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.
 My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children’s sake of mine own body.
 Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.
 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.
 My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
 Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.
 Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
 Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!
 That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!
 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
 But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?
 Be ye afraid of the sword: for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
 For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.
 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?
 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?
 Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.
 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts.
