Call3 now, if there be any that will answer6 thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?4
For wrath killeth4 the foolish man, and envy slayeth55 the silly one.6
I have seen1 the foolish taking root:56 but suddenly I cursed4 his habitation.
His children are far4 from safety, and they are crushed101 in the gate, neither [is there] any to deliver56 [them].
Whose harvest the hungry eateth up,4 and taketh4 it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up1 their substance.
Although affliction cometh not forth4 of the dust, neither doth trouble spring4 out of the ground;
Yet man is born27 unto trouble, as the sparks 7565 fly2 upward.55
I would seek4 unto God, and unto God would I commit4 my cause:
Which doeth6 great things and unsearchable; 2714 marvellous things12 without number:
Who giveth6 rain upon the earth, and sendeth6 waters upon the fields:
To set up2 on high those that be low; that those which mourn6 may be exalted1 to safety.
He disappointeth56 the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform4 [their] enterprise.
He taketh6 the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward12 is carried headlong.12
They meet17 with darkness in the daytime, and grope17 in the noonday as in the night.
But he saveth55 the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.
So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth1 her mouth.
Behold, happy [is] the man whom God correcteth:55 therefore despise4 not thou the chastening of the Almighty:
For he maketh sore,55 and bindeth up:4 he woundeth,4 and his hands make whole.4
He shall deliver55 thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch4 thee.
In famine he shall redeem1 thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.
Thou shalt be hid11 from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid4 of destruction when it cometh.4
At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh:4 neither shalt thou be afraid4 of the beasts of the earth.
For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace90 with thee.
And thou shalt know1 that thy tabernacle [shall be] in peace; and thou shalt visit1 thy habitation, and shalt not sin.4
Thou shalt know1 also that thy seed [shall be] great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.
Thou shalt come4 to [thy] grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in2 in his season.
Lo this, we have searched1 it, so it [is]; hear3 it, and know3 thou [it] for thy good.
