Job 31:24-28

If Only Someone Would Give Me a Hearing!

24-28"Did I set my heart on making big money

or worship at the bank?

Did I boast about my wealth,

show off because I was well-off?

Was I ever so awed by the sun's brilliance

and moved by the moon's beauty

That I let myself become seduced by them

and worshiped them on the sly?

If so, I would deserve the worst of punishments,

for I would be betraying God himself.

29-30"Did I ever crow over my enemy's ruin?

Or gloat over my rival's bad luck?

No, I never said a word of detraction,

never cursed them, even under my breath.
