Wicked / Wickedness – from “Job” the most Afflicted and Double Blessed

And when thou prayest,
thou shalt not be as the hypocrites  are:
for they love to pray standing in the synagogues
and in the corners of the streets,
that they may be seen of men.
Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”
– Matt: 6:5

I am no preacher, but, am a sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, while reading Bible, the following verses were given in the context of “Wicked / Wickedness from the book of Job, in The Old Testament, from The Holy Bible-KJV. 

Job-3:17 There the wicked cease  from troubling;
and there the weary be at rest.

they that plow iniquity,
and sow wickedness,
reap the same.

He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.

Job-9:24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked:
he covereth the faces of the judges thereof;
if not, where,  and who  is he?

why then labour I in vain?

Job-10:3  Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress,
that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands,
and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

and  there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.

Job-10:15 If I be wicked, woe unto me;
and  if I be righteous,
yet will I not lift up my head.
I am full of confusion;
therefore see thou mine affliction;

Job-11:11 For he knoweth vain men:
he seeth wickedness also;
will he not then consider  it?

Job-11:14 If iniquity  be in thine hand,
put it far away,

every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.

Job-20:29 This  is the portion of a wicked man from God,
and the heritage appointed unto him by God.

become old, yea,
are mighty in power?

the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

and where  are the dwelling places of the wicked?

they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

Job-22:5  Is not thy wickedness great?
and thine iniquities infinite?

which wicked men have trodden?

but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

and the heritage of oppressors,
which they shall receive of the Almighty.

14. If his children be multiplied,  it is for the sword:
and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread.
15. Those that remain of him shall be buried in death:
and his widows shall not weep.
16. Though he heap up silver as the dust, and prepare raiment as the clay;
17. He may prepare  it, but the just shall put  it on,
and the innocent shall divide the silver.
18. He buildeth his house as a moth,
and as a booth  that the keeper maketh.
19. The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered:
he openeth his eyes, and he  is not.
20. Terrors take hold on him as waters,
a tempest stealeth him away in the night.
21. The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth:
and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.
22. For  God shall cast upon him, and not spare:
he would fain flee out of his hand.

and shall hiss him out of his place.

ye men of understanding:

that he should commit iniquity.

neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

Job-34:18  Is it fit to say to a king,
Thou art wicked?
and to princes,
Ye are ungodly?

in the open sight of others;

27. Because they turned back from him,
and would not consider any of his ways:

and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.

Job-34:36 My desire  is that Job may be tried
unto the end
because of  his answers for wicked men.

and thy righteousness  may profit the son of man.

but giveth right to the poor.

Job-36:17 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked:
judgment and justice take hold  on thee.

Job-38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth,
that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

and the high arm shall be broken.

IF I did this…..had done this ……. have this and “IF”s……?.

Water -Mannapparai, Tamil Nadu, India

I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” King James Version, God gave me the following verses in the context of “If”s, from the Book of Life.

“For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
neither hath he hid his face from him;
but when he cried unto him, he heard.” -Psa-22:24

“IF”s from most Afflicted and Double Blessed “Job”

Job 31:5.    If I have walked with vanity,
or if my foot hath hasted to deceit;

31:6.  Let me be weighed in an even balance,
that God may know mine integrity.

31:7.  If my step hath turned out of the way,
and mine heart walked after mine eyes,
and if any blot hath cleaved to mine hands;

31:8.  Then let me sow, and let another eat;
yea, let my offspring be rooted out.

31:9.      If mine heart have been deceived by a woman,
or  if I have laid wait at my neighbour’s door;

31:10.  Then let my wife grind unto another,
and let others bow down upon her.
31:11.   For this  is an heinous crime;
yea, it  is an iniquity  to be punished by the judges.
31:12.   For it  is a fire  that consumeth to destruction,
and would root out all mine increase.

31:13.   If I did despise the cause of my manservant
or of my maidservant,
when they contended with me;

31:14.   What then shall I do when God riseth up?
and when he visiteth, what shall I answer him?
31:15.   Did not he that made me in the womb make him?
and did not one fashion us in the womb?

31:16. If I have withheld the poor from  their desire,
or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail;

31:17.   Or have eaten my morsel myself alone,
and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof;
31:18.   (For from my youth he was brought up with me,
as  with a father, and I have guided her from my mother’s womb;)

31:19.   If I have seen any perish for want of clothing,
or any poor without covering;

31:20.   If his loins have not blessed me,
and if he were  not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;

31:21.   If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless,
when I saw my help in the gate:

31:22.  Then let mine arm fall from my shoulder blade,
and mine arm be broken from the bone.
23. 31: For destruction from God was a terror to me,
and by reason of his highness I could not endure.

31:24.   If I have made gold my hope,
or have said to the fine gold,
Thou art my confidence;

31:25.   If I rejoiced because my wealth was great,
and because mine hand had gotten much;

31:26.   If I beheld the sun when it shined,
or the moon walking in brightness;

31:27.   And my heart hath been secretly enticed,
or my mouth hath kissed my hand:
31:28.   This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge:
for I should have denied the God that is above.

31:29.   If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me,
or lifted up myself when evil found him:

31:30.   Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin
by wishing a curse to his soul.

31:31.   If the men of my tabernacle said not,
Oh that we had of his flesh! we cannot be satisfied.

31:32.   The stranger did not lodge in the street:
but I opened my doors to the traveller.

31:33.   If I covered my transgressions as Adam,
by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:

31:34.   Did I fear a great multitude,
or did the contempt of families terrify me,
that I kept silence,
and went not out of the door?
31:35.   Oh that one would hear me!
behold, my desire  is,
that the Almighty would answer me,
and  that mine adversary had written a book.
31:36.   Surely I would take it upon my shoulder,
and bind it  as a crown to me.
31:37.   I would declare unto him the number of my steps;
as a prince would I go near unto him.

31:38.   If my land cry against me,
or that the furrows likewise thereof complain;

31:39.   If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money,
or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life:

31:40.   Let thistles grow instead of wheat,
and cockle instead of barley.
The words of Job are ended.

The Hint to the above passage

“And the LORD said unto Satan,
Hast thou considered my servant Job,
that  there is none like him in the earth,
a perfect and an upright man,
one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” – Job 1:8.
