"If I have walked with falsehood, and my foot has hastened to deceit;
(Let me be weighed in a just balance, and let God know my integrity!)
if my step has turned aside from the way, and my heart has gone after my eyes, and if any spot has cleaved to my hands;
then let me sow, and another eat; and let what grows for me be rooted out.
"If my heart has been enticed to a woman, and I have lain in wait at my neighbor's door;
then let my wife grind for another, and let others bow down upon her.
"If my land has cried out against me, and its furrows have wept together;
if I have eaten its yield without payment, and caused the death of its owners;
let thorns grow instead of wheat, and foul weeds instead of barley." The words of Job are ended.
