That he may withdraw man from his work, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from passing away by the sword. He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and with constant strife in his bones; And his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty food; His flesh is consumed away from view, and his bones that were not seen stick out; And his soul draweth near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers. If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his duty; Then he will be gracious unto him, and say, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. His flesh shall be fresher than in childhood; he shall return to the days of his youth. He shall pray unto +God, and he will receive him with favour; and he shall see his face with shoutings, and he will render unto man his righteousness. He will sing before men, and say, I have sinned, and perverted what was right, and it hath not been requited to me; He hath delivered my soul from going into the pit, and my life shall see the light. Lo, all these things worketh God twice, thrice, with man, To bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.



Ye are the salt of the earth; but if the salt have become insipid, wherewith shall it be salted? It is no longer fit for anything but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot by men.

For consider your calling, brethren, that there are not many wise according to flesh, not many powerful, not many high-born. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world, that he may put to shame the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world, that he may put to shame the strong things; and the ignoble things of the world, and the despised, has God chosen, and things that are not, that he may annul the things that are; read more.

Thou, O Jehovah my God, hast multiplied thy marvellous works, and thy thoughts toward us: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee; would I declare and speak them, they are more than can be numbered. Sacrifice and oblation thou didst not desire: ears hast thou prepared me. Burnt-offering and sin-offering hast thou not demanded;

Lo, God is mighty, but despiseth not any; mighty in strength of understanding: He saveth not the wicked alive; but he doeth justice to the afflicted. He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous, but with kings on the throne doth he even set them for ever; and they are exalted. read more.
And if, bound in fetters, they be held in cords of affliction, Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions, because they have increased. And he openeth their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity. If they hearken and serve him, they shall accomplish their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. But if they hearken not, they shall pass away by the sword, and expire without knowledge. But the godless in heart heap up anger; they cry not when he bindeth them: Their soul dieth in youth, and their life is among the unclean.

The Lord Jehovah hath given me the tongue of the instructed, that I should know how to succour by a word him that is weary. He wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the instructed. The Lord Jehovah hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not away back.

Setting up on high those that are low; and mourners are exalted to prosperity. He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, and their hands carry not out the enterprise. He taketh the wise in their own craftiness; and the counsel of the wily is carried headlong: They meet with darkness in a the daytime, and grope at midday as in the night. And he saveth the needy from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty. So the poor hath what he hopeth for, and unrighteousness stoppeth her mouth. Behold, happy is the man whom +God correcteth; therefore despise not the chastening of the Almighty. For he maketh sore, and bindeth up; he woundeth, and his hands make whole. He will deliver thee in six troubles, and in seven there shall no evil touch thee. In famine he will redeem thee from death, and in war from the power of the sword.

I will say unto +God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou strivest with me. Doth it please thee to oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thy hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked? Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth? read more.
Are thy days as the days of a mortal? are thy years as a man's days, That thou searchest after mine iniquity, and inquirest into my sin; Since thou knowest that I am not wicked, and that there is none that delivereth out of thy hand? Thy hands have bound me together and made me as one, round about; yet dost thou swallow me up! Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as clay, and wilt bring me into dust again. Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese? Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and knit me together with bones and sinews; Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy care hath preserved my spirit; And these things didst thou hide in thy heart; I know that this was with thee. If I sinned, thou wouldest mark me, and thou wouldest not acquit me of mine iniquity. If I were wicked, woe unto me! and righteous, I will not lift up my head, being so full of shame, and beholding mine affliction; -- And it increaseth: thou huntest me as a fierce lion; and ever again thou shewest thy marvellous power upon me. Thou renewest thy witnesses before me and increasest thy displeasure against me; successions of evil and a time of toil are with me. And wherefore didst thou bring me forth out of the womb? I had expired, and no eye had seen me. I should be as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave. Are not my days few? cease then and let me alone, that I may revive a little, Before I go, and never to return, to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;

The tents of desolators are in peace, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand +God bringeth.

Who knoweth not in all these, that the hand of Jehovah hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the spirit of all flesh of man. Doth not the ear try words, as the palate tasteth food? With the aged is wisdom, and in length of days understanding. With him is wisdom and might; he hath counsel and understanding. Behold, he breaketh down, and it is not built again; he shutteth up a man, and there is no opening. Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up; and he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth. With him is strength and effectual knowledge; the deceived and the deceiver are his. He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and judges maketh he fools; He weakeneth the government of kings, and bindeth their loins with a fetter; He leadeth priests away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty; He depriveth of speech the trusty, and taketh away the judgment of the elders; He poureth contempt upon nobles, and slackeneth the girdle of the mighty; He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out into light the shadow of death; He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them; he spreadeth out the nations, and bringeth them in; He taketh away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a pathless waste.

Behold, I will answer thee in this, thou art not right; for +God is greater than man. Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters. For God speaketh once, and twice, and man perceiveth it not -- read more.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth men's ears, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his work, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from passing away by the sword. He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and with constant strife in his bones; And his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty food; His flesh is consumed away from view, and his bones that were not seen stick out; And his soul draweth near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers. If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his duty; Then he will be gracious unto him, and say, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. His flesh shall be fresher than in childhood; he shall return to the days of his youth. He shall pray unto +God, and he will receive him with favour; and he shall see his face with shoutings, and he will render unto man his righteousness. He will sing before men, and say, I have sinned, and perverted what was right, and it hath not been requited to me; He hath delivered my soul from going into the pit, and my life shall see the light. Lo, all these things worketh God twice, thrice, with man, To bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.
