4 He enters the service of princes, he is seen in the presence of rulers. He travels in foreign countries, he has experienced human good and human evil.
16 'How wonderful, the actions of the Lord! Whatever he orders is done at the proper time!' You must not say, 'What is this? Why is that?' There is a proper time for every question.
20 his gaze stretches from eternity to eternity, and nothing can astonish him.
22 As his blessing covers the dry land like a river and soaks it like a flood,
25 Good things were created from the beginning for good people, as bad ones were for sinners.
26 The prime needs of human beings for living are water and fire, iron and salt, wheat-flour, milk and honey, the juice of the grape, oil and clothing.
27 All these are good for those who are good, but turn out bad for sinners.
28 Some winds have been created for punishing, in his fury, he uses them as scourges; on the day of doom, they unleash their violence and appease the wrath of their Creator.
31 all of them exult in discharging his orders, ready on earth whenever the need arises and, when their time comes, not falling short of his word.
