Job 5

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:
