Job 15:12-18

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 15

12 Why does your heart take you away? And why do your eyes wink, 13 That you can turn your spirit against God And produce such words from your mouth? 14 What is man, that he would be pure, Or he who is born of a woman, that he would be righteous? 15 Behold, He has no trust in His holy ones, And the heavens are not pure in His sight; 16 How much less one who is detestable and corrupt: A person who drinks malice like water! 17 'I will tell you, listen to me; And what I have seen I will also declare; 18 What wise people have told, And have not concealed from their fathers,
King James Version

Chapter 15

12 Why doth thine heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at, 13 That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth? 14 What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous? 15 Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight. 16 How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?
17 I will shew thee, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare; 18 Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it:
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 15

12 Why has your heart misled you, and why do your eyes flash
13 as you turn your anger against God and allow such words to leave your mouth? 14 What is a mere human, that he should be pure, or one born of a woman, that he should be righteous? 15 If God puts no trust in his holy ones and the heavens are not pure in his sight,
16 how much less one who is revolting and corrupt, who drinks injustice like water? 17 Listen to me and I will inform you. I will describe what I have seen, 18 what the wise have declared and not concealed, that came from their ancestors,
New Living Translation

Chapter 15

12 What has taken away your reason? What has weakened your vision, 13 that you turn against God and say all these evil things? 14 Can any mortal be pure? Can anyone born of a woman be just? 15 Look, God does not even trust the angels. Even the heavens are not absolutely pure in his sight. 16 How much less pure is a corrupt and sinful person with a thirst for wickedness!
17 'If you will listen, I will show you. I will answer you from my own experience. 18 And it is confirmed by the reports of wise men who have heard the same thing from their fathers--
English Standard Version

Chapter 15

12 Why does your heart carry you away, and why do your eyes flash, 13 that you turn your spirit against God and bring such words out of your mouth? 14 What is man, that he can be pure? Or he who is born of a woman, that he can be righteous? 15 Behold, God puts no trust in his holy ones, and the heavens are not pure in his sight; 16 how much less one who is abominable and corrupt, a man who drinks injustice like water! 17 “I will show you; hear me, and what I have seen I will declare 18 (what wise men have told, without hiding it from their fathers,
New International Version

Chapter 15

12 Why has your heart carried you away, and why do your eyes flash,
13 so that you vent your rage against God and pour out such words from your mouth? 14 What are mortals, that they could be pure, or those born of woman, that they could be righteous? 15 If God places no trust in his holy ones, if even the heavens are not pure in his eyes,
16 how much less mortals, who are vile and corrupt, who drink up evil like water! 17 Listen to me and I will explain to you; let me tell you what I have seen, 18 what the wise have declared, hiding nothing received from their ancestors

Chapter 15

12 ¿Por qué te arrebata el corazón, y por qué centellean tus ojos, 13 para volver tu espíritu contra Dios y dejar salir de tu boca tales palabras? 14 ¿Qué es el hombre para que sea puro, o el nacido de mujer para que sea justo ? 15 He aquí, Dios no confía en sus santos, y ni los cielos son puros ante sus ojos ; 16 ¡cuánto menos el hombre, un ser abominable y corrompido, que bebe como agua la iniquidad !
17 Yo te mostraré, escúchame, y te contaré lo que he visto; 18 lo que los sabios han dado a conocer, sin ocultar nada de sus padres ;

12 ¿Por qué te arrebata el corazón, Y por qué centellean tus ojos, 13 Para volver tu espíritu contra Dios Y dejar salir de tu boca tales palabras? 14 ¿Qué es el hombre para que sea puro, O el nacido de mujer para que sea justo? 15 Si Dios no confía en Sus santos, Y ni los cielos son puros ante Sus ojos; 16 ¡cuánto menos el hombre, un ser abominable y corrompido, Que bebe la iniquidad como agua!
17 Yo te mostraré, escúchame, Y te contaré lo que he visto; 18 Lo que los sabios han dado a conocer, Sin ocultar nada de sus padres;

Chapter 15

12 ¿Por qué te dejas llevar por el enojo? ¿Por qué te relampaguean los ojos? 13 ¿Por qué desatas tu enojo contra Dios y das rienda suelta a tu lengua?
14 »¿Qué es el hombre para creerse puro, y el nacido de mujer para alegar inocencia? 15 Si Dios no confía ni en sus santos siervos, y ni siquiera considera puros a los cielos, 16 ¡cuánto menos confiará en el hombre, que es vil y corrupto y tiene sed del mal!
17 »Escúchame, y te lo explicaré; déjame decirte lo que he visto. 18 Es lo que han declarado los sabios, sin ocultar nada de lo aprendido de sus padres.
Reina-Valera 1960

Chapter 15

12 ¿Por qué tu corazón te aleja, Y por qué guiñan tus ojos, 13 Para que contra Dios vuelvas tu espíritu, Y saques tales palabras de tu boca? 14 ¿Qué cosa es el hombre para que sea limpio, Y para que se justifique el nacido de mujer? 15 He aquí, en sus santos no confía, Y ni aun los cielos son limpios delante de sus ojos; 16 ¿Cuánto menos el hombre abominable y vil, Que bebe la iniquidad como agua?
17 Escúchame; yo te mostraré, Y te contaré lo que he visto; 18 Lo que los sabios nos contaron De sus padres, y no lo encubrieron;
Biblia del Jubileo

Chapter 15

12 ¿Por qué te enajena tu corazón, y por qué guiñan tus ojos, 13 que respondas a Dios con tu espíritu, y sacas tales palabras de tu boca? 14 ¿Qué cosa es el hombre para que sea limpio, y que se justifique el nacido de mujer? 15 He aquí que en sus santos no confía, y ni los cielos son limpios delante de sus ojos, 16 ¿cuánto menos el hombre abominable y vil, que bebe la iniquidad como agua? 17 Escúchame; yo te mostraré, y te contaré lo que he visto; 18 lo que los sabios nos contaron de sus padres, y no lo encubrieron;
