Job 5

Job 5:1 Call now. Is there anyone answering you? And to which of the saints will you turn?
Job 5:2 For vexation kills the fool, and passion causes the simple to die.
Job 5:3 I have seen the fool taking root, but suddenly I cursed his dwelling place.
Job 5:4 His sons are far from safety; yea, they are crushed in the gate; nor is there any deliverer.
Job 5:5 The hungry eat his harvest, and take him to the thorns, and the snare snuffs up their wealth.
Job 5:6 For affliction does not come forth from the dust, nor does trouble spring up out of the ground;
Job 5:7 for man is born to trouble, and the sons of the flame rise, flying upward.
Job 5:8 Truly, I would seek to God, and to God I would put my plea,
Job 5:9 who is doing great things, and there is no searching them; marvelous things to which is no numbering,
Job 5:10 giving rain on the face of the earth and sending water on the face of the field;
Job 5:11 to set the lowly on high; yea, the mourners become very high in safety;
Job 5:12 breaking the plots of the crafty, nor did their hands perform the undertaking.
Job 5:13 He takes the wise in their craftiness, and the counsel of the wily ones is hastened.
Job 5:14 They meet with darkness by day, and grope in the noonday as in the night.
Job 5:15 But He saves the needy from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.
Job 5:16 And there is hope for the weak; and injustice shuts her mouth.
Job 5:17 Behold, blessed is the man whom God corrects; and despise not the chastisement of the Almighty.
Job 5:18 For He wounds, and He binds up. He shatters, and His hands heal.
Job 5:19 He will deliver you in six troubles; yea, in seven no evil shall touch you.
Job 5:20 In famine He will redeem you from death; and in war from the hand of the sword.
Job 5:21 You shall be hidden from the whip of the tongue; and you shall not be afraid of violence when it comes.
Job 5:22 You shall laugh at violence and at famine; and you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
Job 5:23 For you shall be in covenant with the stones of the field; and the beasts of the field will be at peace with you.
Job 5:24 And you shall know that your tent is in peace; and you shall visit your home and shall miss nothing.
Job 5:25 And you shall know that your seed will be numerous, and your offspring as the grass of the earth.
Job 5:26 You shall come to the grave in full vigor, like a stack of grain comes up in its season.
Job 5:27 Consider this. We have searched it out; it is so. Hear it, and know it for yourself.

On this day...
