Job 5:4
Context
Eliphaz Continues

1Call now, if there be any that will answer you; and to which of the saints will you turn? 2For wrath kills the foolish man, and envy slays the silly one. 3I have seen the foolish taking root: but suddenly I cursed his habitation. 4His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them. 5Whose harvest the hungry eats up, and takes it even out of the thorns, and the robber swallows up their substance. 6Although affliction comes not forth of the dust, neither does trouble spring out of the ground; 7Yet man is born to trouble, as the sparks fly upward. 8I would seek to God, and to God would I commit my cause: 9Which does great things and unsearchable; marvelous things without number: 10Who gives rain on the earth, and sends waters on the fields: 11To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety. 12He disappoints the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise. 13He takes the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the fraudulent is carried headlong. 14They meet with darkness in the day time, and grope in the noonday as in the night. 15But he saves the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty. 16So the poor has hope, and iniquity stops her mouth. 17Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects: therefore despise not you the chastening of the Almighty: 18For he makes sore, and binds up: he wounds, and his hands make whole. 19He shall deliver you in six troubles: yes, in seven there shall no evil touch you. 20In famine he shall redeem you from death: and in war from the power of the sword. 21You shall be hid from the whip of the tongue: neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes. 22At destruction and famine you shall laugh: neither shall you be afraid of the beasts of the earth. 23For you shall be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you. 24And you shall know that your tabernacle shall be in peace; and you shall visit your habitation, and shall not sin. 25You shall know also that your seed shall be great, and your offspring as the grass of the earth. 26You shall come to your grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn comes in in his season. 27See this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know you it for your good.
