Effects of Foolishness and Envy - Job 5


Job 5:1 Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and  to which of the saints wilt thou turn? 

Job 5:2 For wrath killeth  the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one. 

Job 5:3 I have  seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his  habitation. 

Job 5:4 His children are far from safety, and they  are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver  them. 

Job 5:5 Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and  taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth  up their substance. 

Job 5:6 Although affliction cometh not  forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the  ground; 

Job 5:7 Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks  fly upward. 

Job 5:8 I would seek unto God, and unto God  would I commit my cause: 

Job 5:9 Which doeth great things  and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:  

Job 5:10 Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters  upon the fields: 

Job 5:11 To set up on high those that be low;  that those which mourn may be exalted to safety. 

Job 5:12 He  disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands  cannot perform their enterprise. 

Job 5:13 He taketh the wise  in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is  carried headlong. 

Job 5:14 They meet with darkness in the  daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night. 

Job 5:15  But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth,  and from the hand of the mighty. 

Job 5:16 So the poor hath  hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth. 

Job 5:17 Behold,  happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise  not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 

Job 5:18 For he  maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands  make whole. 

Job 5:19 He shall deliver thee in six troubles:  yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. 

Job 5:20 In  famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from  the power of the sword. 

Job 5:21 Thou shalt be hid from the  scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of  destruction when it cometh. 

Job 5:22 At destruction and  famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the  beasts of the earth. 

Job 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. 

Job 5:24 And thou shalt know that thy  tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy  habitation, and shalt not sin. 

Job 5:25 Thou shalt know also  that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the  grass of the earth. 

Job 5:26 Thou shalt come to thy grave in  a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season.   

Job 5:27 Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and  know thou it for thy good. KJV
