At destruction and famine you shall laugh, and shall not fear the beasts of the earth.
For you shall be in league with the stones of the field, and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.
You shall know that your tent is safe, and you shall inspect your fold and miss nothing.
You shall know also that your descendants shall be many, and your offspring as the grass of the earth.
You shall come to your grave in ripe old age, as a shock of grain comes up to the threshing floor in its season.
Lo, this we have searched out; it is true. Hear, and know it for your good."
