018:005:001
Call now,
if there be any that will answer thee;
and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?


018:005:002
For wrath killeth the foolish man,
and envy slayeth the silly one.


018:005:003
I have seen the foolish taking root:
but suddenly I cursed his habitation.


018:005:004
His children are far from safety,
and they are crushed in the gate,
neither is there any to deliver them.


018:005:005
Whose harvest the hungry eateth up,
and taketh it even out of the thorns,
and the robber swalloweth up their substance.


018:005:006
Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust,
neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;


018:005:007
Yet man is born unto trouble,
as the sparks fly upward.


018:005:008
I would seek unto God,
and unto God would I commit my cause:


018:005:009
Which doeth great things and unsearchable;
marvellous things without number:


018:005:010
Who giveth rain upon the earth,
and sendeth waters upon the fields:


018:005:011
To set up on high those that be low;
that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.


018:005:012
He disappointeth the devices of the crafty,
so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.


018:005:013
He taketh the wise in their own craftiness:
and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.


018:005:014
They meet with darkness in the day time,
and grope in the noonday as in the night.


018:005:015
But he saveth the poor from the sword,
from their mouth,
and from the hand of the mighty.


018:005:016
So the poor hath hope,
and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.


018:005:017
Behold,
happy is the man whom God correcteth:
therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:


018:005:018
For he maketh sore,
and bindeth up:
he woundeth,
and his hands make whole.


018:005:019
He shall deliver thee in six troubles:
yea,
in seven there shall no evil touch thee.


018:005:020
In famine he shall redeem thee from death:
and in war from the power of the sword.


018:005:021
Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue:
neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh.


018:005:022
At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh:
neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.


018:005:023
For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field:
and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee.


018:005:024
And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace;
and thou shalt visit thy habitation,
and shalt not sin.


018:005:025
Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great,
and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.


018:005:026
Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age,
like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season.


018:005:027
Lo this,
we have searched it,
so it is;
hear it,
and know thou it for thy good.
