Book of Job Chapter 28

JOB 28:1 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it.

JOB 28:2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.

JOB 28:3 He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.

JOB 28:4 The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men.

JOB 28:5 As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.

JOB 28:6 The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.

JOB 28:7 There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen:

JOB 28:8 The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.

JOB 28:9 He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.

JOB 28:10 He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.

JOB 28:11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.

JOB 28:12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

JOB 28:13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

JOB 28:14 The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.

JOB 28:15 It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.

JOB 28:16 It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.

JOB 28:17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.

JOB 28:18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.

JOB 28:19 The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.

JOB 28:20 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?

JOB 28:21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.

JOB 28:22 Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.

JOB 28:23 God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.

JOB 28:24 For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;

JOB 28:25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

JOB 28:26 When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:

JOB 28:27 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.

JOB 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
