Job 5:17-27 World English Bible (WEB)

17 “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects.
    Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty.
18 For he wounds, and binds up.
    He injures, and his hands make whole.
19 He will deliver you in six troubles;
    yes, in seven no evil shall touch you.
20 In famine he will redeem you from death;
    in war, from the power of the sword.
21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue,
    neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes.
22 At destruction and famine you shall laugh,
    neither shall you be afraid of the animals of the earth.
23 For you shall be allied with the stones of the field.
    The animals of the field shall be at peace with you.
24 You shall know that your tent is in peace.
    You shall visit your fold, and shall miss nothing.
25 You shall know also that your offspring[a] shall be great,
    Your offspring as the grass of the earth.
26 You shall come to your grave in a full age,
    like a shock of grain comes in its season.
27 Look this, we have searched it, so it is.
    Hear it, and know it for your good.”

17 “Behold, how happy is the man whom God reproves,
So do not despise the discipline of [a]the Almighty.

He wounds, and His hands also heal.
19 [c]From six troubles He will deliver you,
Even in seven evil will not touch you.
20 “In famine He will redeem you from death,
And in war from the power of the sword.

And you will not be afraid of [d]wild beasts.
23 “For you will be in league with the stones of the field,
And the beasts of the field will be at peace with you.
24 “You will know that your tent is secure,
For you will visit your abode and fear no loss.
25 “You will know also that your [e]descendants will be many,
And your offspring as the grass of the earth.
26 “You will come to the grave in full vigor,
Like the stacking of grain in its season.
27 “Behold this; we have investigated it, and so it is.
Hear it, and know for yourself.”
