NASB — Job 5 — KJV

God Is Just

  1 “Call now, is there anyone who will answer you?
  And to which of the aholy ones will you turn?
  2 “For aanger slays the foolish man,
  And jealousy kills the simple.
  3 “I have seen the afoolish taking root,
  And I bcursed his abode immediately.
  4 “His asons are far from safety,
  They are even Ioppressed in the gate,
  And there is no deliverer.
  5IHis harvest the hungry devour
  And take it to a [place of] thorns,
  And the IIaschemer is eager for their wealth.
  6 “For aaffliction does not come from the dust,
  Nor does trouble sprout from the ground,
  7 For aman is born for trouble,
  As sparks fly upward.

  8 ¶ “But as for me, I would aseek God,
  And I would place my cause before God;
  9 Who adoes great and unsearchable things,
  IWonders without number.
  10 “He agives rain on the earth
  And sends water on the fields,
  11 So that aHe sets on high those who are lowly,
  And those who mourn are lifted to safety.
  12 “He afrustrates the plotting of the shrewd,
  So that their hands cannot attain success.
  13 “He acaptures the wise by their own shrewdness,
  And the advice of the cunning is quickly thwarted.
  14 “By day they ameet with darkness,
  And grope at noon as in the night.
  15 “But He saves from athe sword of their mouth,
  And bthe poor from the hand of the mighty.
  16 “So the helpless has hope,
  And aunrighteousness must shut its mouth.

The harm of inconsideration.

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.

[1] Dt 33:2; Jb 4:18; 15:8, 15; Ps 16:3; 106:16; Is 41:1, 21; Ep 1:1; He 12:1.

The end of the wicked is misery.

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.

[3] Dt 27:15; Jb 27:8; Ps 37:35; 69:25; 73:3, 18; 92:7; Jr 12:1; Ac 1:20.
[4] Ex 20:5; Jb 1:19; 4:10; 8:4; 10:7; 18:16; 27:14; Ps 7:2; 109:9; 119:155; 127:5; Lk 13:4.
[5] Dt 28:33, 51; Jg 6:3, 11; 2Ch 33:11; Jb 1:15, 17; 2:3; 12:6; 18:9; 20:15; Is 62:8; Jr 51:34, 44; Lm 2:5, 16; Ho 8:7.

God is to be regarded in affliction.

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.

The happy end of God's correction.

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.
