Job 5
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1Call now, if there shall be anyone to answer thee; and if there shall be any of the saints for thee to look unto?

2It is certain that wrath kills the foolish man, and envy consumes the covetous one.

3I have seen the foolish taking root, but at the same time I cursed his habitation.

4His sons are far from saving health, and they shall be crushed in the gate, and there shall be no one to deliver them.

5The hungry shall eat up his harvest, and even take it out from among the thorns, and the thirsty shall drink up their substance.

6For the iniquity does not come forth out of the dust; neither does chastisement spring up out of the ground;

7yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

8I would certainly seek God, and unto God would I commit my affairs;

9who does great things that no one can understand, and marvels that have no explanation;

10who gives rain upon the earth and sends waters abroad;

11who sets up the humble on high, that those who mourn may be lifted up with saving health.

12He frustrates the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.

13He takes the wise in their own prudence, and the counsel of his adversaries is turned to folly.

14They meet with darkness in the daytime and grope in the noonday as in the night.

15But he saves the poor from the sword, from the mouth of the wicked, and from the hand of the violent.

16Who is the hope of the poor, and iniquity closes her mouth.

17Behold, blessed is the man whom God chastens; therefore, do not despise not the correction of the Almighty.

18For he makes sore, and binds up; he wounds, and his hands make whole.

19He shall deliver thee in six tribulations, and in the seventh no evil shall touch thee.

20In famine he shall ransom thee from death, and in war from the power of the sword.

21Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue; neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it comes.

22At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh; neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth;

23for thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field; and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee.

24And thou shalt know that there is peace in thy tent, and thou shalt visit thy habitation and shalt not sin.

25Thou shalt know that thy seed is great and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.

26Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like a shock of wheat that is gathered in its season.

27Behold that which we have searched out, so it is; hear it and judge it for thyself.
