Job 5:1-10

1 Call out, Job. See if anyone answers. Is there any angel to whom you can turn?
2 To worry yourself to death with resentment would be a foolish, senseless thing to do.
3 I have seen fools who looked secure, but I called down a sudden curse on their homes.
4 Their children can never find safety; no one stands up to defend them in court.
5 Hungry people will eat the fool's crops - even the grain growing among thorns - and thirsty people will envy his wealth.
6 Evil does not grow in the soil, nor does trouble grow out of the ground.
7 No indeed! We bring trouble on ourselves, as surely as sparks fly up from a fire.
8 If I were you, I would turn to God and present my case to him.
9 We cannot understand the great things he does, 1 and to his miracles there is no end.
10 He sends rain on the land and he waters the fields.
