Thematic Bible

With the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied;
He will be satisfied with the product of his lips.

“Should a wise man answer with windy knowledge
And fill himself with the east wind?

“They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity,
And their mind prepares deception.”

“Because he knew no quiet within him,
He does not retain anything he desires.

For our soul has sunk down into the dust;
Our body cleaves to the earth.

Stripes that wound scour away evil,
And strokes reach the innermost parts.

I heard and my inward parts trembled,
At the sound my lips quivered.
Decay enters my bones,
And in my place I tremble.
Because I must wait quietly for the day of distress,
For the people to arise who will invade us.
