NIV 2 “How long will you say such things? Your words are a blustering wind. CEB 3 Does God pervert justice, or does the Almighty distort what is right? NIV 3 Does God pervert justice? Does the Almighty pervert what is right? CEB 4 If your children sinned against him, then he delivered them into the power of their rebellion. NIV 4 When your children sinned against him, he gave them over to the penalty of their sin. CEB 5 If you will search eagerly for God, plead with the Almighty. NIV 5 But if you will seek God earnestly and plead with the Almighty, CEB 6 If you are pure and do the right thing, then surely he will become active on your behalf and reward your innocent dwelling. NIV 6 if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your prosperous state. CEB 7 Although your former state was ordinary, your future will be extraordinary. NIV 7 Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be. CEB 8 Ask a previous generation and verify the findings of your ancestors, NIV 8 “Ask the former generation and find out what their ancestors learned, CEB 9 for we are only recently here and don't know because our days on earth are a shadow. NIV 9 for we were born only yesterday and know nothing, and our days on earth are but a shadow. CEB 10 Won't they instruct you and tell you; will words not proceed from their hearts? NIV 10 Will they not instruct you and tell you? Will they not bring forth words from their understanding? CEB 11 Does papyrus grow apart from a marsh? Does a reed flourish without water? NIV 11 Can papyrus grow tall where there is no marsh? Can reeds thrive without water? CEB 12 While still tender, uncut, it will wither before every other grass. NIV 12 While still growing and uncut, they wither more quickly than grass. CEB 13 So are the paths of all who forget God. Hope perishes for the godless, NIV 13 Such is the destiny of all who forget God; so perishes the hope of the godless. CEB 14 whose confidence is a fragile thing, their trust, a spider's web. NIV 14 What they trust in is fragile ; what they rely on is a spider’s web. CEB 15 He leans on its web, and it doesn't stand; grasps it, and it can't remain in place. NIV 15 They lean on the web, but it gives way; they cling to it, but it does not hold. CEB 16 It's like a well-watered plant in the sun; its runners spread over its gardens. NIV 16 They are like a well-watered plant in the sunshine, spreading its shoots over the garden; CEB 17 Its roots are entwined over a pile of rocks, for it sees a home among stones. NIV 17 it entwines its roots around a pile of rocks and looks for a place among the stones. CEB 18 If it's uprooted from its place, it lies, saying, "I can't see you." NIV 18 But when it is torn from its spot, that place disowns it and says, ‘I never saw you.’ CEB 19 Surely its way is a joy, for from the dust other plants sprout. NIV 19 Surely its life withers away, and from the soil other plants grow. CEB 20 Surely God won't reject integrity, won't strengthen the hand of the wicked. NIV 20 “Surely God does not reject one who is blameless or strengthen the hands of evildoers. CEB 21 He will still fill your mouth with joy, your lips with a victorious shout. NIV 21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. CEB 22 Those who hate you will be clothed with shame, and the tent of the wicked will vanish. NIV 22 Your enemies will be clothed in shame, and the tents of the wicked will be no more.”
