Job Chapter 5
5:1 Call now, if there be 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
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 of the dust, neither doth
trouble spring out of the ground;
5:7 Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
5:8 I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:
5:9 Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without
5:10 Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:
5:11 To set up on high those that be low; that those which 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

5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not

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 shall be in peace; and thou
shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.
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 corn
cometh in in his season.
5:27 Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know thou it
for thy good.
