Geneva Study Bible
   1: Pray, call, is there any to answer thee? And unto which of the holy ones dost thou turn?
   2: For provocation slayeth the perverse, And envy putteth to death the simple,
   3: I -- I have seen the perverse taking root, And I mark his habitation straightway,
   4: Far are his sons from safety, And they are bruised in the gate, And there is no deliverer.
   5: Whose harvest the hungry doth eat, And even from the thorns taketh it, And the designing swallowed their wealth.
   6: For sorrow cometh not forth from the dust, Nor from the ground springeth up misery.
   7: For man to misery is born, And the sparks go high to fly.
   8: Yet I -- I inquire for God, And for God I give my word,
   9: Doing great things, and there is no searching. Wonderful, till there is no numbering.
   10: Who is giving rain on the face of the land, And is sending waters on the out-places.
   11: To set the low on a high place, And the mourners have been high [in] safety.
   12: Making void thoughts of the subtile, And their hands do not execute wisdom.
   13: Capturing the wise in their subtilty, And the counsel of wrestling ones was hastened,
   14: By day they meet darkness, And as night -- they grope at noon.
   15: And He saveth the wasted from their mouth, And from a strong hand the needy,
   16: And there is hope to the poor, And perverseness hath shut her mouth.
   17: Lo, the happiness of mortal man, God doth reprove him: And the chastisement of the Mighty despise not,
   18: For He doth pain, and He bindeth up, He smiteth, and His hands heal.
   19: In six distresses He delivereth thee, And in seven evil striketh not on thee.
   20: In famine He hath redeemed thee from death, And in battle from the hands of the sword.
   21: When the tongue scourgeth thou art hid, And thou art not afraid of destruction, When it cometh.
   22: At destruction and at hunger thou mockest, And of the beast of the earth, Thou art not afraid.
   23: (For with sons of the field [is] thy covenant, And the beast of the field Hath been at peace with thee.)
   24: And thou hast known that thy tent [is] peace, And inspected thy habitation, and errest not,
   25: And hast known that numerous [is] Thy seed, And thine offspring as the herb of the earth;
   26: Thou comest in full age unto the grave, As the going up of a stalk in its season.
   27: Lo, this -- we searched it out -- it [is] right, hearken; And thou, know for thyself!
