Job chapter 6

Flash Needs to be Turned On
1
But Job answered and said,
2
Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together!
3
For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up.
4
For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit: the terrors of God do set themselves in array against me.
5
Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder?
6
Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
7
The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.
8
Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
9
Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
10
Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.
11
What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?
12
Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?
13
Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?
14
To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
15
My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;
16
Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid:
17
What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.
18
The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.
19
The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.
20
They were confounded because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed.
21
For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid.
22
Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?
23
Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?
24
Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.
25
How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?
26
Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?
27
Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend.
28
Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie.
29
Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it.
30
Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?

Job chapter 7

Flash Needs to be Turned On
1
Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?
2
As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:
3
So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.
4
When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.
5
My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.
6
My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.
7
O remember that my life is wind: mine eye shall no more see good.
8
The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not.
9
As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more.
10
He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.
11
Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
12
Am I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch over me?
13
When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint;
14
Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions:
15
So that my soul chooseth strangling, and death rather than my life.
16
I loathe it; I would not live alway: let me alone; for my days are vanity.
17
What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?
18
And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?
19
How long wilt thou not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?
20
I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?
21
And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be.

Job chapter 8

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 strong wind?
3
Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
4
If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;
5
If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, 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
Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
8
For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
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 his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.
13
So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:
14
Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.
15
He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
16
He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.
17
His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones.
18
If he destroy him 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 grow.
20
Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers:
21
Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.
22
They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.

Acts chapter 12

Flash Needs to be Turned On
1
Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
2
And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
3
And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
4
And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
5
Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
6
And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
7
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
8
And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
9
And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
10
When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
11
And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
12
And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.
13
And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.
14
And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.
15
And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
16
But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
17
But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.
18
Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.
19
And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and there abode.
20
And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king's country.
21
And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
22
And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
23
And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
24
But the word of God grew and multiplied.
25
And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.
