Eliphaz’s Response Continues

5"Cry for help, but will anyone answer you? Which of the angels will help you?H7121H3426H6030H6918H6437 2Surely resentment destroys the fool, and jealousy kills the simple.H3708H2026H191H7068H4191H6601 3I have seen that fools may be successful for the moment, but then comes sudden disaster.H7200H191H8327H6597H5344H5116 4Their children are abandoned far from help; they are crushed in court with no one to defend them.H1121H7368H3468H1792H8179H5337 5The hungry devour their harvest, even when it is guarded by brambles. The thirsty pant after their wealth.H7105H7457H398H3947H413H6791H6782H7602H2428 6But evil does not spring from the soil, and trouble does not sprout from the earth.H205H3318H6083H5999H6779H127 7People are born for trouble as readily as sparks fly up from a fire.H120H3205H5999H1121H7565H5774H1361 8"If I were you, I would go to God and present my case to him.H199H1875H410H430H7760H1700 9He does great things too marvelous to understand. He performs countless miracles.H6213H1419H369H2714H6381H4557 10He gives rain for the earth and water for the fields.H5414H4306H6440H776H7971H4325H6440H2351 11He gives prosperity to the poor and protects those who suffer.H7760H4791H8217H6937H7682H3468 12He frustrates the plans of schemers so the work of their hands will not succeed.H6565H4284H6175H3027H6213H8454 13He traps the wise in their own cleverness so their cunning schemes are thwarted.H3920H2450H6193H6098H6617H4116 14They find it is dark in the daytime, and they grope at noon as if it were night.H6298H2822H3119H4959H6672H3915 15He rescues the poor from the cutting words of the strong, and rescues them from the clutches of the powerful.H3467H34H2719H6310H3027H2389 16And so at last the poor have hope, and the snapping jaws of the wicked are shut.H1800H8615H5766H7092H6310 17"But consider the joy of those corrected by God! Do not despise the discipline of the Almighty when you sin.H835H582H433H3198H3988H4148H7706 18For though he wounds, he also bandages. He strikes, but his hands also heal.H3510H2280H4272H3027H7495 19From six disasters he will rescue you; even in the seventh, he will keep you from evil.H5337H8337H6869H7651H7451H5060 20He will save you from death in time of famine, from the power of the sword in time of war.H7458H6299H4194H4421H3027H2719 21You will be safe from slander and have no fear when destruction comes.H2244H7752H3956H3372H7701H935 22You will laugh at destruction and famine; wild animals will not terrify you.H7701H3720H7832H3372H2416H776 23You will be at peace with the stones of the field, and its wild animals will be at peace with you.H1285H68H7704H2416H7704H7999 24You will know that your home is safe. When you survey your possessions, nothing will be missing.H3045H168H7965H6485H5116H2398 25You will have many children; your descendants will be as plentiful as grass!H3045H2233H7227H6631H6212H776 26You will go to the grave at a ripe old age, like a sheaf of grain harvested at the proper time!H935H6913H3624H1430H5927H6256 27"We have studied life and found all this to be true. Listen to my counsel, and apply it to yourself."H2713H8085H3045
