1. Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,

2. {If} we assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be grieved? but who can withhold himself from speaking? {to...: Heb. a word} {withhold...: Heb. refrain from words?}

3. Behold, thou hast instructed many, and thou hast strengthened the weak hands.

4. Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees.

5. But now it is come upon thee, and thou faintest; it toucheth thee, and thou art troubled.

6. {Is} not {this} thy fear, thy confidence, thy hope, and the uprightness of thy ways?

7. Remember, I pray thee, who {ever} perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off?

8. Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

9. By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed. {by the breath...: that is, by his anger}

10. The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken.

11. The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad.

12. Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof. {secretly: Heb. by stealth}

13. In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,

14. Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake. {came...: Heb. met} {all: Heb. the multitude of}

15. Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:

16. It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image {was} before mine eyes, {there was} silence, and I heard a voice, {saying}, {there...: or, I heard a still voice}

17. Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?

18. Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly: {and his...: or, nor in his angels, in whom he put light}

19. How much less {in} them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation {is} in the dust, {which} are crushed before the moth?

20. They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding {it}. {destroyed: Heb. beaten in pieces}

21. Doth not their excellency {which is} in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.

1. Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn? {turn: or, look?}

2. For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one. {envy: or, indignation}

3. I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.

4. His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither {is there} any to deliver {them}.

5. Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.

6. Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; {affliction: or, iniquity}

7. Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward. {trouble: or, labour} {sparks...: Heb. the sons of the burning coal lift up to fly}

8. I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:

9. Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number: {unsearchable: Heb. there is no search} {without...: Heb. till there be no number}

10. Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields: {fields: Heb. outplaces}

11. To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

12. He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform {their} enterprise. {their enterprise: or, any thing}

13. He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.

14. They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night. {meet...: or, run into}

15. But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.

16. So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.

17. Behold, happy {is} the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

18. For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

19. He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.

20. In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. {power: Heb. hands}

21. Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. {from...: or, when the tongue scourgeth}

22. At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.

23. For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee.

24. And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle {shall be} in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin. {thy tabernacle...: or, peace is thy tabernacle} {sin: or, err}

25. Thou shalt know also that thy seed {shall be} great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth. {great: or, much}

26. Thou shalt come to {thy} grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season. {cometh in: Heb. ascendeth}

27. Lo this, we have searched it, so it {is}; hear it, and know thou {it} for thy good. {for...: Heb. for thyself}

1. But Job answered and said,

2. Oh that my grief were throughly weighed, and my calamity laid in the balances together! {laid: Heb. lifted up}

3. For now it would be heavier than the sand of the sea: therefore my words are swallowed up. {my words...: that is, I want words to express my grief}

4. For the arrows of the Almighty {are} within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit: the terrors of God do set themselves in array against me.

5. Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder? {when he...: Heb. at grass?}

6. Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there {any} taste in the white of an egg?

7. The things {that} my soul refused to touch {are} as my sorrowful meat.

8. Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant {me} the thing that I long for! {the thing...: Heb. my expectation}

9. Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!

10. Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

11. What {is} my strength, that I should hope? and what {is} mine end, that I should prolong my life?

12. {Is} my strength the strength of stones? or {is} my flesh of brass? {of brass: Heb. brasen?}

13. {Is} not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?

14. To him that is afflicted pity {should be shewed} from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty. {is afflicted: Heb. melteth}

15. My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, {and} as the stream of brooks they pass away;

16. Which are blackish by reason of the ice, {and} wherein the snow is hid:

17. What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place. {vanish: Heb. are cut off} {when...: Heb. in the heat thereof} {consumed: Heb. extinguished}

18. The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.

19. The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.

20. They were confounded because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed.

21. For now ye are nothing; ye see {my} casting down, and are afraid. {ye are...: or, ye are like to them: Heb. to it} {nothing: Heb. not}

22. Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?

23. Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?

24. Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.

25. How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?

26. Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, {which are} as wind?

27. Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig {a pit} for your friend. {ye overwhelm: Heb. ye cause to fall upon}

28. Now therefore be content, look upon me; for {it is} evident unto you if I lie. {evident...: Heb. before your face}

29. Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness {is} in it. {in it: that is, in this matter}

30. Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things? {my taste: Heb. my palate}

1. {Is there} not an appointed time to man upon earth? {are not} his days also like the days of an hireling? {an appointed...: or, a warfare}

2. As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for {the reward of} his work: {earnestly...: Heb. gapeth after}

3. So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.

4. When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day. {the night...: Heb. the evening be measured?}

5. My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.

6. My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.

7. O remember that my life {is} wind: mine eye shall no more see good. {shall...: Heb. shall not return} {see: to see, that is, to enjoy}

8. The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no {more}: thine eyes {are} upon me, and I {am} not. {I am...: that is, I can live no longer}

9. {As} the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no {more}.

10. He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.

11. Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.

12. {Am} I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch over me?

13. When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint;

14. Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions:

15. So that my soul chooseth strangling, {and} death rather than my life. {life: Heb. bones}

16. I loathe {it}; I would not live alway: let me alone; for my days {are} vanity.

17. What {is} man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?

18. And {that} thou shouldest visit him every morning, {and} try him every moment?

19. How long wilt thou not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?

20. I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?

21. And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I {shall} not {be}.

1. Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

2. How long wilt thou speak these {things}? and {how long shall} the words of thy mouth {be like} a strong wind?

3. Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

4. If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression; {for...: Heb. in the hand of their transgression}

5. If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;

6. If thou {wert} pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.

7. Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.

8. For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:

9. (For we {are but of} yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth {are} a shadow:) {nothing: Heb. not}

10. Shall not they teach thee, {and} tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?

11. Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?

12. Whilst it {is} yet in his greenness, {and} not cut down, it withereth before any {other} herb.

13. So {are} the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:

14. Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust {shall be} a spider's web. {web: Heb. house}

15. He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.

16. He {is} green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.

17. His roots are wrapped about the heap, {and} seeth the place of stones.

18. If he destroy him from his place, then {it} shall deny him, {saying}, I have not seen thee.

19. Behold, this {is} the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.

20. Behold, God will not cast away a perfect {man}, neither will he help the evil doers: {help...: Heb. take the ungodly by the hand} {come: Heb. shall not be}

21. Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing. {rejoicing: Heb. shouting for joy}

22. They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought. {shall come...: Heb. shall not be}

1. Then Job answered and said,

2. I know {it is} so of a truth: but how should man be just with God? {with God: or, before God?}

3. If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.

4. {He is} wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened {himself} against him, and hath prospered?

5. Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.

6. Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

7. Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.

8. Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. {waves: Heb. heights}

9. Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. {Arcturus...: Heb. Ash, Cesil, and Cimah}

10. Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

11. Lo, he goeth by me, and I see {him} not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.

12. Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou? {hinder...: Heb. turn him away?}

13. {If} God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him. {proud...: Heb. helpers of pride, or, strength}

14. How much less shall I answer him, {and} choose out my words {to reason} with him?

15. Whom, though I were righteous, {yet} would I not answer, {but} I would make supplication to my judge.

16. If I had called, and he had answered me; {yet} would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.

17. For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.

18. He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.

19. If {I speak} of strength, lo, {he is} strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time {to plead}?

20. If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: {if I say}, I {am} perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.

21. {Though} I {were} perfect, {yet} would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.

22. This {is} one {thing}, therefore I said {it}, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.

23. If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.

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?

25. Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.

26. They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle {that} hasteth to the prey. {swift...: or, ships of Ebeh: Heb. ships of desire}

27. If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort {myself}:

28. I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.

29. {If} I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?

30. If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;

31. Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me. {abhor...: or, make me to be abhorred}

32. For {he is} not a man, as I {am, that} I should answer him, {and} we should come together in judgment.

33. Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, {that} might lay his hand upon us both. {any...: Heb. one that should argue} {daysman: or, umpire}

34. Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me:

35. {Then} would I speak, and not fear him; but {it is} not so with me. {it is...: Heb. I am not so with myself}

1. My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul. {weary...: or, cut off while I live}

2. I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.

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? {work: Heb. labour}

4. Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?

5. {Are} thy days as the days of man? {are} thy years as man's days,

6. That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?

7. Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and {there is} none that can deliver out of thine hand. {Thou...: Heb. It is upon thy knowledge}

8. Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me. {have...: Heb. took pains about me}

9. Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

10. Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?

11. Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews. {fenced: Heb. hedged}

12. Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

13. And these {things} hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this {is} with thee.

14. If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.

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;

16. For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.

17. Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war {are} against me. {witnesses: that is, plagues}

18. Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!

19. I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.

20. {Are} not my days few? cease {then, and} let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,

21. Before I go {whence} I shall not return, {even} to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;

22. A land of darkness, as darkness {itself; and} of the shadow of death, without any order, and {where} the light {is} as darkness.

1. Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

2. Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified? {full...: Heb. of lips}

3. Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed? {lies: or, devices}

4. For thou hast said, My doctrine {is} pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.

5. But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee;

6. And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that {they are} double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee {less} than thine iniquity {deserveth}.

7. Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?

8. {It is} as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? {as high...: Heb. the heights of heaven}

9. The measure thereof {is} longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.

10. If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him? {cut...: or, make a change} {hinder...: Heb. turn him away?}

11. For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider {it}?

12. For vain man would be wise, though man be born {like} a wild ass's colt. {vain: Heb. empty}

13. If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him;

14. If iniquity {be} in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.

15. For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:

16. Because thou shalt forget {thy} misery, {and} remember {it} as waters {that} pass away:

17. And {thine} age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning. {be clearer...: Heb. arise above}

18. And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig {about thee, and} thou shalt take thy rest in safety.

19. Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make {thee} afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee. {make suit...: Heb. intreat thy face}

20. But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope {shall be as} the giving up of the ghost. {they shall...: Heb. flight shall perish from them} {the giving...: or, a puff of breath}

1. And Job answered and said,

2. No doubt but ye {are} the people, and wisdom shall die with you.

3. But I have understanding as well as you; I {am} not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these? {understanding: Heb. an heart} {I am...: Heb. I fall not lower than you} {who...: Heb. with whom are not such as these?}

4. I am {as} one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon God, and he answereth him: the just upright {man is} laughed to scorn.

5. He that is ready to slip with {his} feet {is as} a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.

6. The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth {abundantly}.

7. But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:

8. Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.

9. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?

10. In whose hand {is} the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. {soul: or, life} {all...: Heb. all flesh of man}

11. Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat? {mouth: Heb. palate}

12. With the ancient {is} wisdom; and in length of days understanding.

13. With him {is} wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding. {With...: that is, With God}

14. Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening. {up: Heb. upon}

15. Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.

16. With him {is} strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver {are} his.

17. He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools.

18. He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.

19. He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.

20. He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged. {speech...: Heb. lip of the faithful}

21. He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty. {weakeneth...: or, looseth the girdle of the strong}

22. He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.

23. He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them {again}. {straiteneth: Heb. leadeth in}

24. He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness {where there is} no way.

25. They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like {a} drunken {man}. {stagger: Heb. wander}

1. Lo, mine eye hath seen all {this}, mine ear hath heard and understood it.

2. What ye know, {the same} do I know also: I {am} not inferior unto you.

3. Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.

4. But ye {are} forgers of lies, ye {are} all physicians of no value.

5. O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.

6. Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.

7. Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?

8. Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?

9. Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye {so} mock him?

10. He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons.

11. Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall upon you?

12. Your remembrances {are} like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.

13. Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what {will}. {Hold...: Heb. Be silent from me}

14. Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?

15. Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him. {maintain: Heb. prove, or, argue}

16. He also {shall be} my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before him.

17. Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.

18. Behold now, I have ordered {my} cause; I know that I shall be justified.

19. Who {is} he {that} will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.

20. Only do not two {things} unto me: then will I not hide myself from thee.

21. Withdraw thine hand far from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid.

22. Then call thou, and I will answer: or let me speak, and answer thou me.

23. How many {are} mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.

24. Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy?

25. Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?

26. For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.

27. Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet. {lookest...: Heb. observest} {heels: Heb. roots}

28. And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.

1. Man {that is} born of a woman {is} of few days, and full of trouble. {few...: Heb. short of days}

2. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.

3. And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee?

4. Who can bring a clean {thing} out of an unclean? not one. {can...: Heb. will give}

5. Seeing his days {are} determined, the number of his months {are} with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;

6. Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day. {rest: Heb. cease}

7. For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

8. Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;

9. {Yet} through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.

10. But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where {is} he? {wasteth...: Heb. is weakened, or, cut off}

11. {As} the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up:

12. So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens {be} no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.
