Job 5 (WEBP)

[1] “Call now; is there any who will answer you? To which of the holy ones will you turn?
[2] For resentment kills the foolish man, and jealousy kills the simple.
[3] I have seen the foolish taking root, but suddenly I cursed his habitation.
[4] His children are far from safety. They are crushed in the gate. Neither is there any to deliver them,
[5] whose harvest the hungry eat up, and take it even out of the thorns. The snare gapes for their substance.
[6] For affliction doesn’t come out of the dust, neither does trouble spring out of the ground;
[7] but man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
[8] “But as for me, I would seek God. I would commit my cause to God,
[9] who does great things that can’t be fathomed, marvelous things without number;
[10] who gives rain on the earth, and sends waters on the fields;
[11] so that he sets up on high those who are low, those who mourn are exalted to safety.
[12] He frustrates the plans of the crafty, so that their hands can’t perform their enterprise.
[13] He takes the wise in their own craftiness; the counsel of the cunning is carried headlong.
[14] They meet with darkness in the day time, and grope at noonday as in the night.
[15] But he saves from the sword of their mouth, even the needy from the hand of the mighty.
[16] So the poor has hope, and injustice shuts her mouth.
[17] “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects. Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty.
[18] For he wounds and binds up. He injures and his hands make whole.
[19] He will deliver you in six troubles; yes, in seven no evil will touch you.
[20] In famine he will redeem you from death; in war, from the power of the sword.
[21] You will be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, neither will you be afraid of destruction when it comes.
[22] You will laugh at destruction and famine, neither will you be afraid of the animals of the earth.
[23] For you will be allied with the stones of the field. The animals of the field will be at peace with you.
[24] You will know that your tent is in peace. You will visit your fold, and will miss nothing.
[25] You will know also that your offspring will be great, your offspring as the grass of the earth.
[26] You will come to your grave in a full age, like a shock of grain comes in its season.
[27] Behold, we have researched it. It is so. Hear it, and know it for your good.”

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 5 (KJVS)

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

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 5 (YLT)

[1] Pray, call, is there any to answer thee? And unto which of the holy ones dost thou turn?
[2] For provocation slayeth the perverse, And envy putteth to death the simple,
[3] I-I have seen the perverse taking root, And I mark his habitation straightway,
[4] Far are his sons from safety, And they are bruised in the gate, And there is no deliverer.
[5] Whose harvest the hungry doth eat, And even from the thorns taketh it, And the designing swallowed their wealth.
[6] For sorrow cometh not forth from the dust, Nor from the ground springeth up misery.
[7] For man to misery is born, And the sparks go high to fly.
[8] Yet I-I inquire for God, And for God I give my word,
[9] Doing great things, and there is no searching. Wonderful, till there is no numbering.
[10] Who is giving rain on the face of the land, And is sending waters on the out-places.
[11] To set the low on a high place, And the mourners have been high in safety.
[12] Making void thoughts of the subtile, And their hands do not execute wisdom.
[13] Capturing the wise in their subtilty, And the counsel of wrestling ones was hastened,
[14] By day they meet darkness, And as night-they grope at noon.
[15] And He saveth the wasted from their mouth, And from a strong hand the needy,
[16] And there is hope to the poor, And perverseness hath shut her mouth.
[17] Lo, the happiness of mortal man, God doth reprove him: And the chastisement of the Mighty despise not,
[18] For He doth pain, and He bindeth up, He smiteth, and His hands heal.
[19] In six distresses He delivereth thee, And in seven evil striketh not on thee.
[20] In famine He hath redeemed thee from death, And in battle from the hands of the sword.
[21] When the tongue scourgeth thou art hid, And thou art not afraid of destruction, When it cometh.
[22] At destruction and at hunger thou mockest, And of the beast of the earth, Thou art not afraid.
[23] (For with sons of the field is thy covenant, And the beast of the field Hath been at peace with thee.)
[24] And thou hast known that thy tent is peace, And inspected thy habitation, and errest not,
[25] And hast known that numerous is Thy seed, And thine offspring as the herb of the earth;
[26] Thou comest in full age unto the grave, As the going up of a stalk in its season.
[27] Lo, this-we searched it out-it is right, hearken; And thou, know for thyself!
