English Standard Version (ESV)


Job 4

4:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:

“If one ventures a word with you, will you be impatient?
Yet who can keep from speaking?
Behold, you have instructed many,
and you have strengthened the weak hands.
Your words have upheld him who was stumbling,
and you have made firm the feeble knees.
But now it has come to you, and you are impatient;
it touches you, and you are dismayed.
Is not your fear of God your confidence,
and the integrity of your ways your hope?

“Remember: who that was innocent ever perished?
Or where were the upright cut off?
As I have seen, those who plow iniquity
and sow trouble reap the same.
By the breath of God they perish,
and by the blast of his anger they are consumed.
10 The roar of the lion, the voice of the fierce lion,
the teeth of the young lions are broken.
11 The strong lion perishes for lack of prey,
and the cubs of the lioness are scattered.

12 “Now a word was brought to me stealthily;
my ear received the whisper of it.
13 Amid thoughts from visions of the night,
when deep sleep falls on men,
14 dread came upon me, and trembling,
which made all my bones shake.
15 A spirit glided past my face;
the hair of my flesh stood up.
16 It stood still,
but I could not discern its appearance.
A form was before my eyes;
there was silence, then I heard a voice:
17 ‘Can mortal man be in the right before God?
Can a man be pure before his Maker?
18 Even in his servants he puts no trust,
and his angels he charges with error;
19 how much more those who dwell in houses of clay,
whose foundation is in the dust,
who are crushed like the moth.
20 Between morning and evening they are beaten to pieces;
they perish forever without anyone regarding it.
21 Is not their tent-cord plucked up within them,
do they not die, and that without wisdom?’

John 4:27-45

27 Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” 28 So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” 30 They went out of the town and were coming to him.

31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. 36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”

39 Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his word. 42 They said to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.”

43 After the two days he departed for Galilee. 44 (For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own hometown.) 45 So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the feast. For they too had gone to the feast.

Mark 1:14-15

14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Luke 3:19-20

19 But Herod the tetrarch, who had been reproved by him for Herodias, his brother's wife, and for all the evil things that Herod had done, 20 added this to them all, that he locked up John in prison.


King James Version (KJV)


Job 4:1-21

1Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,2If we assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be grieved? but who can withhold himself from speaking?3Behold, thou hast instructed many, and thou hast strengthened the weak hands.4Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees.5But now it is come upon thee, and thou faintest; it toucheth thee, and thou art troubled.6Is not this thy fear, thy confidence, thy hope, and the uprightness of thy ways?7Remember, I pray thee, who ever perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off?8Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.9By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed.10The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken.11The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad.12Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof.13In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,14Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.15Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:16It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,17Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?18Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:19How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?20They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding it.21Doth not their excellency which is in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.

John 4:27-45

27And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?28The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,29Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?30Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.31In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.32But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.35Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.36And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.37And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.38I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.39And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.40So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.41And many more believed because of his own word;42And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.43Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.45Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.

Mark 1:14-15

14Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Luke 3:19-20

19But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,20Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.
