Job 5

GNT 1 Call out, Job. See if anyone answers. Is there any angel to whom you can turn? NIV 1 “Call if you will, but who will answer you? To which of the holy ones will you turn? GNT 2 To worry yourself to death with resentment would be a foolish, senseless thing to do. NIV 2 Resentment kills a fool, and envy slays the simple. GNT 3 I have seen fools who looked secure, but I called down a sudden curse on their homes. NIV 3 I myself have seen a fool taking root, but suddenly his house was cursed. GNT 4 Their children can never find safety; no one stands up to defend them in court. NIV 4 His children are far from safety, crushed in court without a defender. GNT 5 Hungry people will eat the fool's crops - even the grain growing among thorns - and thirsty people will envy his wealth. NIV 5 The hungry consume his harvest, taking it even from among thorns, and the thirsty pant after his wealth. GNT 6 Evil does not grow in the soil, nor does trouble grow out of the ground. NIV 6 For hardship does not spring from the soil, nor does trouble sprout from the ground. GNT 7 No indeed! We bring trouble on ourselves, as surely as sparks fly up from a fire. NIV 7 Yet man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward. GNT 8 If I were you, I would turn to God and present my case to him. NIV 8 “But if I were you, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him. GNT 9 We cannot understand the great things he does, and to his miracles there is no end. NIV 9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. GNT 10 He sends rain on the land and he waters the fields. NIV 10 He provides rain for the earth; he sends water on the countryside. GNT 11 Yes, it is God who raises the humble and gives joy to all who mourn. NIV 11 The lowly he sets on high, and those who mourn are lifted to safety. GNT 12 He upsets the plans of cunning people, and traps the wise in their own schemes, so that nothing they do succeeds; NIV 12 He thwarts the plans of the crafty, so that their hands achieve no success. GNT 14 even at noon they grope in darkness. NIV 14 Darkness comes upon them in the daytime; at noon they grope as in the night. GNT 15 But God saves the poor from death; he saves the needy from oppression. NIV 15 He saves the needy from the sword in their mouth; he saves them from the clutches of the powerful. GNT 16 He gives hope to the poor and silences the wicked. NIV 16 So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts its mouth. GNT 17 Happy is the person whom God corrects! Do not resent it when he rebukes you. NIV 17 “Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. GNT 18 God bandages the wounds he makes; his hand hurts you, and his hand heals. NIV 18 For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal. GNT 19 Time after time he will save you from harm; NIV 19 From six calamities he will rescue you; in seven no harm will touch you. GNT 20 when famine comes, he will keep you alive, and in war protect you from death. NIV 20 In famine he will deliver you from death, and in battle from the stroke of the sword. GNT 21 God will rescue you from slander; he will save you when destruction comes. NIV 21 You will be protected from the lash of the tongue, and need not fear when destruction comes. GNT 22 You will laugh at violence and hunger and not be afraid of wild animals. NIV 22 You will laugh at destruction and famine, and need not fear the wild animals. GNT 23 The fields you plow will be free of rocks; wild animals will never attack you. NIV 23 For you will have a covenant with the stones of the field, and the wild animals will be at peace with you. GNT 24 Then you will live at peace in your tent; when you look at your sheep, you will find them safe. NIV 24 You will know that your tent is secure; you will take stock of your property and find nothing missing. GNT 25 You will have as many children as there are blades of grass in a pasture. NIV 25 You will know that your children will be many, and your descendants like the grass of the earth. GNT 26 Like wheat that ripens till harvest time, you will live to a ripe old age. NIV 26 You will come to the grave in full vigor, like sheaves gathered in season. GNT 27 Job, we have learned this by long study. It is true, so now accept it. NIV 27 “We have examined this, and it is true. So hear it and apply it to yourself.”
