Job 5:17–27

17 “Behold, khappy is the man whom God corrects;

Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty.

18 lFor He bruises, but He binds up;

He wounds, but His hands make whole.

19 mHe shall deliver you in six troubles,

Yes, in seven nno evil shall touch you.

20 oIn famine He shall redeem you from death,

And in war from the 5power of the sword.

21 pYou shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue,

And you shall not be afraid of destruction when it comes.

22 You shall laugh at destruction and famine,

And qyou shall not be afraid of the rbeasts of the earth.

23 sFor you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field,

And the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.

24 You shall know that your tent is in peace;

You shall visit your dwelling and find nothing amiss.

25 You shall also know that tyour descendants shall be many,

And your offspring ulike the grass of the earth.

26 vYou shall come to the grave at a full age,

As a sheaf of grain ripens in its season.

27 Behold, this we have wsearched out;

It is true.

Hear it, and know for yourself.”
