Job 5

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

5:1 Call now; is there any that will answer thee? And to which of the holy ones wilt thou turn?

5:2 For vexation killeth the foolish man, And jealousy 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 snare gapeth for their substance.

5:6 For affliction cometh not forth from the dust, Neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;

5:7 But man is born unto trouble, As the sparks fly upward.

5:8 But as for me, I would seek unto God, And unto God would I commit my cause;

5:9 Who doeth great things and unsearchable, Marvellous things without number:

5:10 Who giveth rain upon the earth, And sendeth waters upon the fields;

5:11 So that he setteth up on high those that are low, And those that mourn are exalted to safety.

5:12 He frustrateth 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 cunning is carried headlong.

5:14 They meet with darkness in the day-time, And grope at noonday as in the night.

5:15 But he saveth from the sword of their mouth, Even the needy 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 dearth 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 tent is in peace; And thou shalt visit thy fold, and shalt miss nothing.

5:25 Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, And thine offspring as the grass of the earth.

5:26 Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, Like as a shock of grain 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.
