Job
Chapter 5





Job 5:1

Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?

Job 5:2

For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one.

Job 5:3

I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.

Job 5:4

His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither [is there] any to deliver [them].

Job 5:5

Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.

Job 5:6

Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;

Job 5:7

Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

Job 5:8

I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:

Job 5:9

Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:

Job 5:10

Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:

Job 5:11

To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

Job 5:12

He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform [their] enterprise.

Job 5:13

He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.

Job 5:14

They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night.

Job 5:15

But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.

Job 5:16

So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.

Job 5:17

Behold, happy [is] the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

Job 5:18

For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

Job 5:19

He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.

Job 5:20

In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.

Job 5:21

Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh.

Job 5:22

At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.

Job 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.

Job 5:24

And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle [shall be] in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.

Job 5:25

Thou shalt know also that thy seed [shall be] great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.

Job 5:26

Thou shalt come to [thy] grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season.

Job 5:27

Lo this, we have searched it, so it [is]; hear it, and know thou [it] for thy good.
