Job 24:11-13 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 They that make oil [a]between their walls, and tread their winepresses, suffer thirst.

12 Men [b]cry out of the city, and the souls of the slain [c]cry out: yet God [d]doth not charge them with folly.

13 These are they that abhor the [e]light: they know not the ways thereof, nor continue in the paths thereof.


  1. Job 24:11 In such places which are appointed for that purpose: meaning, that those that labor for the wicked, are pined for hunger.
  2. Job 24:12 For the great oppression and extortion.
  3. Job 24:12 Cry out and call for vengeance.
  4. Job 24:12 God doth not condemn the wicked, but seemeth to pass over it by his long silence.
  5. Job 24:13 That is, God’s word, because they are reproved thereby.

Job 24:11-13 New International Version (NIV)

11 They crush olives among the terraces[a];
    they tread the winepresses, yet suffer thirst.
12 The groans of the dying rise from the city,
    and the souls of the wounded cry out for help.
    But God charges no one with wrongdoing.

13 “There are those who rebel against the light,
    who do not know its ways
    or stay in its paths.


  1. Job 24:11 The meaning of the Hebrew for this word is uncertain.
