1Call out now; is there anyone who will answer you? To which of the holy ones will you turn?
2For anger kills the foolish man; jealousy kills the silly one.
3I have seen a foolish person taking root, but suddenly I cursed his home.
4His children are far from safety; they are crushed in the city gate. There is no one to rescue them.
5The hungry eat up their harvest; they even take it from among the thorns. The thirsty pant for their wealth.
6For difficulties do not come out from the soil; neither does trouble sprout from the ground.
7Instead, mankind is born for trouble, just as sparks fly upward.
8But as for me, I would turn to God himself; to him I would commit my cause—
9he who does great and unsearchable things, marvelous things without number.
10He gives rain on the earth, and sends water on the fields.
11He does this in order to set up on high those who are low; to raise to safety those who mourn.
12He breaks the plans of the crafty people, so that their hands cannot achieve success.
13He traps wise people in their own crafty actions; the plans of twisted people are hurried to their end.
14They encounter darkness in the daytime, and grope at noonday as if it were night.
15But he saves the poor person from the sword in their mouths and the needy person from the hand of mighty people.
16So the poor person has hope, and injustice shuts her own mouth.
17See, blessed is the man whom God corrects; therefore, do not despise the chastening of the Almighty.
18For he wounds and then binds up; he wounds and then his hands heal.

19He will rescue you out of six troubles; indeed, in seven troubles, no evil will touch you.
20In famine he will ransom you from death, and in war from the hands of the sword.
21You will be hidden from the scourge of the tongue; and you will not be afraid of destruction when it comes.
22You will laugh at destruction and famine, and you will not be afraid of beasts of the earth.
23For you will have a covenant with the stones in your field, and the beasts of the field will be at peace with you.
24You will know that your tent is in safety; you will visit your sheepfold and you will not miss anything.
25You will also know that your seed will be great, that your offspring will be like the grass on the ground.
26You will come to your grave at a full age, like a stack of grain bundles that goes up at its time.
27See, we have examined this matter; it is like this; listen to it, and know it for yourself.”
