Job 5


5:1 Call now, if there is any that will answer thee; and to
 which of the saints wilt thou turn?
5:2 For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the
 silly one.
5:3 I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed
 his habitation.
5:4 His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in
 the gate, neither [is there] any to deliver [them].
5:5 Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out
 of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.
5:6 Although affliction cometh not forth from the dust, neither
 doth trouble spring out of the ground;
5:7 Yet man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
5:8 I would seek to God, and to God would I commit my cause:
5:9 Who doeth great things and unsearchable; wonderful things
 without number:
5:10 Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the
 fields:
5:11 To set on high those that are low: that those who mourn may
 be exalted to safety.
5:12 He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their
 hands cannot perform [their] enterprise.
5:13 He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel
 of the froward is carried headlong.
5:14 They meet with darkness in the day-time, and grope in the
 noon-day as in the night.
5:15 But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth,
 and from the hand of the mighty.
5:16 So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.
5:17 Behold, happy [is] the man whom God correcteth: therefore
 despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:
5:18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his
 hands make whole.
5:19 He will deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there
 shall no evil touch thee.
5:20 In famine he will redeem thee from death: and in war from
 the power of the sword.
5:21 Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither
 shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh.
5:22 At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt
 thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
5:23 For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field:
 and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee.
5:24 And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle [will be] in peace;
 and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.
5:25 Thou shalt know also that thy seed [will be] great, and thy
 offspring as the grass of the earth.
5:26 Thou shalt come to [thy] grave in a full age, as a shock of
 corn cometh in in its season.
5:27 Lo this, we have searched it, so it [is]; hear it, and know
 thou [it] for thy good.
