nkjv@Job:8:2 @ "How long will you speak these things, And the words of your mouth be like a strong wind?
nkjv@Job:8:3 @ Does God subvert judgment? Or does the Almighty pervert justice?
nkjv@Job:8:4 @ If your sons have sinned against Him, He has cast them away for their transgression.
nkjv@Job:8:5 @ If you would earnestly seek God And make your supplication to the Almighty,
nkjv@Job:8:6 @ If you were pure and upright, Surely now He would awake for you, And prosper your rightful dwelling place.

nkjv@Job:8:17 @ His roots wrap around the rock heap, And look for a place in the stones.
nkjv@Job:8:18 @ If he is destroyed from his place, Then it will deny him, saying, "I have not seen you.'
nkjv@Job:8:19 @ "Behold, this is the joy of His way, And out of the earth others will grow.
nkjv@Job:8:20 @ Behold, God will not cast away the blameless, Nor will He uphold the evildoers.
nkjv@Job:8:21 @ He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, And your lips with rejoicing.
nkjv@Job:8:22 @ Those who hate you will be clothed with shame, And the dwelling place of the wicked will come to nothing."
