JOB 5:1 Pray, call, is there any to answer thee? And unto which of the holy ones dost thou turn?

JOB 5:2 For provocation slayeth the perverse, And envy putteth to death the simple,

JOB 5:3 I -- I have seen the perverse taking root, And I mark his habitation straightway,

JOB 5:4 Far are his sons from safety, And they are bruised in the gate, And there is no deliverer.

JOB 5:5 Whose harvest the hungry doth eat, And even from the thorns taketh it, And the designing swallowed their wealth.

JOB 5:6 For sorrow cometh not forth from the dust, Nor from the ground springeth up misery.

JOB 5:7 For man to misery is born, And the sparks go high to fly.

JOB 5:8 Yet I -- I inquire for God, And for God I give my word,

JOB 5:9 Doing great things, and there is no searching. Wonderful, till there is no numbering.

JOB 5:10 Who is giving rain on the face of the land, And is sending waters on the out-places.

JOB 5:11 To set the low on a high place, And the mourners have been high `in' safety.

JOB 5:12 Making void thoughts of the subtile, And their hands do not execute wisdom.

JOB 5:13 Capturing the wise in their subtilty, And the counsel of wrestling ones was hastened,

JOB 5:14 By day they meet darkness, And as night -- they grope at noon.

JOB 5:15 And He saveth the wasted from their mouth, And from a strong hand the needy,

JOB 5:16 And there is hope to the poor, And perverseness hath shut her mouth.

JOB 5:17 Lo, the happiness of mortal man, God doth reprove him: And the chastisement of the Mighty despise not,

JOB 5:18 For He doth pain, and He bindeth up, He smiteth, and His hands heal.

JOB 5:19 In six distresses He delivereth thee, And in seven evil striketh not on thee.

JOB 5:20 In famine He hath redeemed thee from death, And in battle from the hands of the sword.

JOB 5:21 When the tongue scourgeth thou art hid, And thou art not afraid of destruction, When it cometh.

JOB 5:22 At destruction and at hunger thou mockest, And of the beast of the earth, Thou art not afraid.

JOB 5:23 (For with sons of the field `is' thy covenant, And the beast of the field Hath been at peace with thee.)

JOB 5:24 And thou hast known that thy tent `is' peace, And inspected thy habitation, and errest not,

JOB 5:25 And hast known that numerous `is' Thy seed, And thine offspring as the herb of the earth;

JOB 5:26 Thou comest in full age unto the grave, As the going up of a stalk in its season.

JOB 5:27 Lo, this -- we searched it out -- it `is' right, hearken; And thou, know for thyself!
