Job 5

5:1 Call now, if there be any that wil answere thee, and to which of the Saints wilt thou turne 5:2 For wrath killeth the foolish man, and enuy slayeth the silly one. 5:3 I haue seene the foolish taking roote: but suddenly I cursed his habitation. 5:4 His children are farre from safetie, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliuer them. 5:5 Whose haruest the hungry eateth vp, and taketh it euen out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth vp their substance. 5:6 Although affliction commeth not forth of the dust, neither doeth trouble spring out of the ground: 5:7 Yet man is borne vnto trouble, as the sparkes flie vpward. 5:8 I would seeke vnto God, and vnto God would I commit my cause: 5:9 Which doth great things & vnsearchable: marueilous things without number. 5:10 Who giueth raine vpon the earth, and sendeth waters vpon the fields: 5:11 To set vp on high those that be low; that those which mourne, may be exalted to safetie. 5:12 Hee disappointeth the deuices of the craftie, so that their hands cannot performe their enterprise. 5:13 He taketh the wise in their owne craftinesse: and the counsell of the froward is caried headlong. 5:14 They meete with darkenesse in the day time, and grope in the noone day as in the night. 5:15 But he saueth the poore from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mightie. 5:16 So the poore hath hope, and iniquitie stoppeth her mouth. 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almightie. 5:18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth vp: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. 5:19 Hee shall deliuer thee in sixe troubles, yea in seuen there shall no euill touch thee. 5:20 In famine he shall redeeme thee from death: and in warre from the power of the sword. 5:21 Thou shalt be hidde from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction, when it commeth. 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 bee in peace; and thou shalt visite thy habitation, and shalt not sinne. 5:25 Thou shalt know also that thy seede shalbe great, and thine offspring as the grasse of the earth. 5:26 Thou shalt come to thy graue in a full age, like as a shocke of corne commeth in, in his season. 5:27 Loe this, wee haue searched it, so it is; heare it, and know thou it for thy good.
