Geneva Study Bible
   1: Call now; is there any that will answer thee? And to which of the holy ones wilt thou turn?
   2: For vexation killeth the foolish man, And jealousy 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 snare gapeth for their substance.
   6: For affliction cometh not forth from the dust, Neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;
   7: But man is born unto trouble, As the sparks fly upward.
   8: But as for me, I would seek unto God, And unto God would I commit my cause;
   9: Who doeth great things and unsearchable, Marvellous things without number:
   10: Who giveth rain upon the earth, And sendeth waters upon the fields;
   11: So that he setteth up on high those that are low, And those that mourn are exalted to safety.
   12: He frustrateth 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 cunning is carried headlong.
   14: They meet with darkness in the day-time, And grope at noonday as in the night.
   15: But he saveth from the sword of their mouth, Even the needy 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 will deliver thee in six troubles; Yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.
   20: In famine he will 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 dearth 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 tent is in peace; And thou shalt visit thy fold, and shalt miss nothing.
   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 grain cometh in in its season.
   27: Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; Hear it, and know thou it for thy good.
