Job 4-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
Eliphaz: Job Has Sinned
4 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:
2 “If one attempts a word with you, will you become weary?
7 “Remember now, who ever perished being innocent?
12 “Now a word was secretly brought to me,
Eliphaz: Job Is Chastened by God
5 “Call out now;
8 “But as for me, I would seek God,
17 “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects;
Job: My Complaint Is Just
6 Then Job answered and said:
2 “Oh, that my grief were fully weighed,
8 “Oh, that I might have my request,
11 “What strength do I have, that I should hope?
14 “To him who is [g]afflicted, kindness should be shown by his friend,
24 “Teach me, and I will hold my tongue;
Job: My Suffering Is Comfortless
7 “Is there not a time of hard service for man on earth?
6 “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle,
11 “Therefore I will not restrain my mouth;
17 “What is man, that You should exalt him,
1 Corinthians 14:18-40 New King James Version (NKJV)
18 I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all; 19 yet in the church I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I may teach others also, than ten thousand words in a tongue.
Tongues a Sign to Unbelievers
20 Brethren, do not be children in understanding; however, in malice be babes, but in understanding be mature.
21 In the law it is written:
“With men of other tongues and other lips
says the Lord.
22 Therefore tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers; but prophesying is not for unbelievers but for those who believe. 23 Therefore if the whole church comes together in one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those who are uninformed or unbelievers, will they not say that you are [a]out of your mind? 24 But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. 25 [b]And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.
Order in Church Meetings
26 How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for [c]edification. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret. 28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. 30 But if anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first keep silent. 31 For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be encouraged. 32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33 For God is not the author of [d]confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
34 Let [e]your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. 35 And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church.
36 Or did the word of God come originally from you? Or was it you only that it reached? 37 If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. 38 But [f]if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant.
39 Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. 40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
Psalm 37:30-40 New King James Version (NKJV)
30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom,
32 The wicked watches the righteous,
34 Wait on the Lord,
37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
