Job - Chapter 5
2 Resentment kills the senseless, and anger brings death to the fool.
4 His children are deprived of prop and stay, ruined at the gate, and no one to defend them;
5 their harvest goes to feed the hungry, God snatches it from their mouths, and covetous people thirst for their possessions.
8 If I were you, I should appeal to God and lay my case before him.
11 If his will is to raise up the downcast, or exalt the afflicted to the heights of prosperity,
17 Blessed are those whom God corrects! Do not then scorn the lesson of Shaddai!
21 You will be safe from the lash of the tongue, unafraid at the approach of the despoiler.
22 You will laugh at drought and frost, and have no fear of the beasts of the earth.
23 You will have a pact with the stones of the field, and live in amity with wild beasts.
24 You will know that your tent is secure, and your sheepfold unharmed when you inspect it.
25 You will see your descendants multiply, your offspring grow like the grass in the fields.
26 At a ripe age you will go to the grave, like a wheatsheaf stacked in due season.
27 All this we have observed and it is so! Heed it, you will be the wiser for it!
