5:1  Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?
5:2  For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one.
5:3  I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation.
5:4  His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.
5:5  Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.
5:6  Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;
5:7  Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
5:8  I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:
5:9  Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:
5:10  Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:
5:11  To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.
5:12  He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
5:13  He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.
5:14  They meet with darkness in the day time, and grope in the noonday as in the night.
5:15  But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.
5:16  So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.
5:17  Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:
5:18  For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.
5:19  He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.
5:20  In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.
5:21  Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh.
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 be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.
5:25  Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.
5:26  Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season.
5:27  Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know thou it for thy good.
