14 They shall meet with darkness in the day, and grope at noonday as in the night.
15 But he shall save the needy from the sword of their mouth, and the poor from the hand of the violent.
16 And to the needy there shall be hope, but iniquity shall draw in her mouth.
17 Blessed is the man whom God correcteth: refuse not, therefore, the chastising of the Lord.
18 For he woundeth, and cureth: he striketh, and his hands shall heal.
19 In six troubles he shall deliver thee, and in the seventh, evil shall not touch thee.
20 In famine he shall deliver thee from death; and in battle, from the hand of the sword.
21 Thou shalt be hidden from the scourge of the tongue: and thou shalt not fear calamity when it cometh.
22 In destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: and thou shalt not be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
23 But thou shalt have a covenant with the stones of the lands, and the beasts of the earth shall be at peace with thee.
24 And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle is in peace, and visiting thy beauty, thou shalt not sin.
