Job 5
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Call now if there is one who answers you, and to whom of the holy ones will you turn?

2Because passion kills a stupid man and anger kills a fool

3I have seen the wicked who prospers and his dwelling is suddenly destroyed

4His sons will be far from redemption and they will be humbled at the gate, and there is none who redeems them

5What he reaps a famine will consume, and they will be poured out for thirst, and the thirsty break their possessions into pieces

6Because falsehood does not come out from the dust, neither does evil spring forth from the ground

7Because a son of man is born to trouble, and the offspring of birds to lift up wings

8However, I shall seek for God, and to God I shall put my word

9Who does great things without limit and wonders without number

10Who gives rain on the face of the Earth and sends waters on the face of the streets

11To put the humble in high place and the meek will be strengthened with redemption

12He brings the ideas of the wise to nothing that their hands will not perform a scheme

13He seizes wise men in their philosophy and the thinking of the crafty he brings to nothing

14By day they will grope as when in darkness, and they will grope at noonday as at night

15He saves the poor from the sword of their mouth and from the hand of the mighty

16And the poor will have hope and the evil one will shut his mouth

17His blessing to a man whom God reproves and the discipline of The Almighty let him not reject

18Because he breaks and binds up and he strikes and his hands heal

19In six troubles he will save you, and in the seventh evil will not approach to you

20In famine he will save you from death, and in war from the hands of the sword

21From the rod of the tongue you shall be sheltered, and you will not be afraid of ruin when it comes

22Against looting and against famine you will laugh, and of animals of the field you will not be afraid

23Because your covenant is with the stones of the wilderness, and the animal of the field is handed over to you

24And you will know that your tent is secure and you will return to your dwelling and you will not sin

25And you will know that your seed is abundant and your offspring as grass of the Earth

26And you will enter the tomb gently, as a shock of corn comes up in its time

27This we searched and thus it is that we heard it, and know for yourself
