Geneva Study Bible
   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 eats up, And take it even out of the thorns; The snare gapes for their substance.
   6: For affliction doesn't come forth from 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, To God would I commit my cause;
   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 devices 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 there shall no evil touch you.
   20: In famine he will redeem you from death; In war, from the power of the sword.
   21: You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, Neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes.
   22: At destruction and famine you shall laugh, Neither shall you be afraid of the animals of the earth.
   23: For you shall be in league with the stones of the field. The animals of the field shall be at peace with you.
   24: You shall know that your tent is in peace. You shall visit your fold, and shall miss nothing.
   25: You shall know also that your seed shall be great, Your offspring as the grass of the earth.
   26: You shall come to your grave in a full age, Like a shock of grain comes in its season.
   27: Look this, we have searched it, so it is; Hear it, and know it for your good."
