Job 5


Eliphaz Continues to Speak

But call, if any one will hearken to you; or if [2any 4angels 3holy 1you shall see]. For even [3a fool 2does away with 1anger], [4one having wandered 1and 3puts to death 2zeal]. And I have seen fools [2root 1laying]; and I cursed their attractiveness immediately. [4at a distance 1May 3be 2their sons] from safety, and they shall be crushed at the doors of lesser men, and there shall not be one rescuing. [3which 1For 2those things] they harvested, one hungering shall eat; but they [2to 3ones armed 1shall be carried]; may [3be siphoned off 1their 2strength]. [4not 1For 3can 5come forth 6out of 7the 8earth 2toil], nor [3from 4the mountains 2sprout up 1shall misery]. But a man is born to toil, and the young eagles [2the 3high places 1to fly]; [2nevertheless 1but] I shall beseech of the  lord, [3the  lord 1and 4the 5master of all 2I shall call upon], the one doing great things, and untraceable, honorable things also, and extraordinary, which there is no number; 10 the one giving rain upon the earth, sending water upon the places under heaven; 11 the one appointing the humble unto the height, and [2the ones perishing 1raising up], 12 effacing counsels of clever ones, that in no way should [2perform 1their hands] true; 13 the one overtaking the wise with the intellect; and the counsel of the crafty ones he amazes. 14 By day [2shall meet 3them 1darkness], and at midday may they grope equally as at night. 15 And may they perish in war; and may the powerless come forth from out of the hand of the mighty one. 16 And may there be [2to the poor 1hope]; [4of the unjust 1but 3the mouth 2may] be obstructed. 17 And blessed is the man whom [3reproved 1the 2  lord], [4the admonition 1and 5of the almighty 2does not 3refuse]. 18 For he [2one to ache 1causes], and again he restores; he smites, and his hands heal. 19 Six times [2from out of 3your distresses 1he rescues you], and in the seventh time in no way will he touch you for bad. 20 In famine, he will rescue you from death, [2in 3war 1and 6from out of 7the hand 8of iron 4he will untie 5you]. 21 [2from 3the whip 4of the tongue 1He shall hide you], and in no way shall you be fearful from [2evils 1the coming]. 22 The unjust and lawless you shall ridicule, and from [2beasts 1wild] in no way shall you be fearful; 23 for the beasts of the wild shall make peace with you. 24 Then you shall know that [3shall be at peace 1your 2house]; and he shall visit your beauty, and in no way should it have sinned. 25 And you shall know that [2shall be many 1your seed], and your progeny will be as the abundant herbage of the field. 26 And you shall come unto the grave as grain in season, according to the time of harvesting; or as a heap of the threshing-floor according to the hour of its being collected. 27 Behold, these things thus we tracked out, these things are what we have heard; but you, know in yourself if you acted in anything!
