Job 21:8  Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.
Job 21:9  Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them.
Job 21:10  Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf.
Job 21:11  They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance.
Job 21:12  They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ.
Job 21:13  They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.
Job 21:14  Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.
Job 21:15  What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?
Job 21:16  Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
Job 21:17  How
oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their
destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.

Job 21:18  They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.
Job 21:19  God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it.

Psa 1:1 
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor
standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the
scornful.
Psa 1:2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Psa
1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that
bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Psa 1:4  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Psa 1:5  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
Psa 1:6  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psa 35:1  [a psalm of David] Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

Psa 35:3  Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
Psa
35:4  Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul:
let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
Psa 35:5  Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
Psa 35:6  Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
Psa 35:7  For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
Psa
35:8  Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that
he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
Psa 35:9  And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.

Isa 5:18  Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
Isa
5:19  That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may
see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and
come, that we may know it!
Isa 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil
good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for
darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isa 5:21  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isa 5:22  Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isa 5:23  Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
Isa 5:24  Therefore
as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff,
so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as
dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and
despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Isa 5:25 
Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he
hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and
the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the
streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is
stretched out still.
Isa 5:26  And he will lift up an ensign to
the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the
earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
Isa 5:27 
None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor
sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the
latchet of their shoes be broken:
Isa 5:28  Whose arrows are
sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses’ hoofs shall be counted
like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
Isa 5:29  Their
roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea,
they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away
safe, and none shall deliver it.
Isa 5:30  And in that day they
shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look
unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in
the heavens thereof.

Isa 17:1  The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
Isa 17:2  The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
Isa
17:3  The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from
Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the
children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.
Isa 17:4  And in that
day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin,
and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. Cp. Amos 8:11
Isa 17:5 
And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth
the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the
valley of Rephaim.
Isa 17:6  Yet
gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree,
two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in
the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the LORD God of Israel.

Isa 17:7  At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
Isa
17:8  And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands,
neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the
groves, or the images.
Isa 17:9  In that day shall his strong
cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left
because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
Isa 17:10  Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:
Isa
17:11  In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning
shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap
in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
Isa 17:12  Woe
to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of
the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the
rushing of mighty waters! Cp. Rev. 17:15

Isa 17:13  The
nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall
rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the
chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before
the whirlwind.

Isa 17:14  And behold at eveningtide
trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them
that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

Isa 29:1  Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
Isa 29:2  Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel.
Isa
29:3  And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege
against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee.
Isa
29:4  And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the
ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice
shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and
thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.
Isa 29:5  Moreover
the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the
multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away:
yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.

Isa 29:6  Thou
shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with
earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of
devouring fire.
Isa 29:7  And the multitude of all the nations
that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her
munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

Isa 29:8  It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and,
behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a
thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and,
behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude
of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.
Isa 29:9  Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
Isa 29:10  For
the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath
closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he
covered.

Isa 29:11  And the vision of all is become unto
you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one
that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I
cannot; for it is sealed:
Isa 29:12  And the book is delivered to
him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith,
I am not learned.
Isa 29:13  Wherefore
the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth,
and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from
me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Isa 29:14  Therefore,
behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even
a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall
perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

Isa 33:1 
Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest
treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou
shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make
an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.
Isa 33:2  O
LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm
every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

Isa 33:3  At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered.
Isa 33:4 
And your spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpiller:
as the running to and fro of locusts shall he run upon them.

Isa 33:5  The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.
Isa 33:6  And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.
Isa 33:7  Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.
Isa
33:8  The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth: he hath broken
the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man.
Isa
33:9  The earth mourneth and languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed and hewn
down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off
their fruits.
Isa 33:10  Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.
Isa 33:11  Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.
Isa 33:12  And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
Isa 33:13  Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge my might.
Isa 33:14 
The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the
hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among
us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Isa 33:15  He
that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the
gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes,
that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes
from seeing evil;

Isa 33:16  He
shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of
rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Cp. Amos 8:11

Isa 41:8  But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
Isa
41:9  Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called
thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my
servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
Isa 41:10  Fear
thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will
strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with
the right hand of my righteousness.

Isa 41:11  Behold, all
they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded:
they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Isa
41:12  Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that
contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing,
and as a thing of nought.
Isa 41:13  For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isa
41:14  Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help
thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
Isa 41:15  Behold,
I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou
shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the
hills as chaff.

Isa 41:16  Thou
shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind
shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory
in the Holy One of Israel.

Jer 23:28  The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
Jer 23:29  Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Cp. Rev. 1:16; Heb 4:12
Jer 23:30  Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
Jer 23:31  Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
Jer 23:32  Behold,
I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do
tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their
lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they
shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.

Jer 23:33  And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.
Jer 23:34  And
as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The
burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.

Jer
23:35  Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to
his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD
spoken?
Jer 23:36  And the
burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man’s word shall
be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of
the LORD of hosts our God.

Jer 23:37  Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken?
Jer 23:38  But
since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD;
Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto
you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD;

Jer 23:39  Therefore,
behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and
the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my
presence:

Jer 23:40  And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.

Dan 2:31 
Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose
brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was
terrible.
Dan 2:32  This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
Dan 2:33  His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
Dan
2:34  Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which
smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake
them to pieces.
Dan 2:35  Then
was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to
pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer
threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was
found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great
mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Dan 2:36  This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
Dan 2:37  Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
Dan
2:38  And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the
field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and
hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
Dan
2:39  And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and
another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the
earth.
Dan 2:40  And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron:
forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as
iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
Dan
2:41  And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay,
and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in
it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed
with miry clay.
Dan 2:42  And as the toes of the feet were part of
iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and
partly broken.
Dan 2:43  And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with
miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they
shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
Dan 2:44  And
in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom,
which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to
other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Hos 13:1  When Ephraim spake trembling, he exalted himself in Israel; but when he offended in Baal, he died.
Hos
13:2  And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images
of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of
it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that
sacrifice kiss the calves.
Hos 13:3  Therefore
they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the early dew that passeth
away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor,
and as the smoke out of the chimney.

Hos 13:4  Yet I am the
LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me:
for there is no saviour beside me.
Hos 13:5  I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.
Hos
13:6  According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were
filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.
Hos 13:7  Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them:
Hos
13:8  I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and
will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a
lion: the wild beast shall tear them.
Hos 13:9  O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.

Zep 2:1  Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
Zep 2:2  Before
the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the
fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S
anger come upon you.

Zep 2:3  Seek
ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment;
seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day
of the LORD’S anger.

Luk 3:8 
Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say
within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you,
That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Luk 3:9  And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Luk 3:10  And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
Luk
3:11  He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him
impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do
likewise.
Luk 3:12  Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
Luk 3:13  And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
Luk
3:14  And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall
we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any
falsely; and be content with your wages.
Luk 3:15  And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;
Luk 3:16  John answered, saying unto them all, I
indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the
latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you
with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

Luk 3:17  Whose
fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will
gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire
unquenchable.
Cp. Mt. 3:12
