2: How long wilt thou speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind? edit

3: Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice? edit

4: If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression; edit

5: If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty; edit

6: If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous. edit

7: Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. edit

8: For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers: edit

9: (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:) edit

10: Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart? edit

11: Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water? edit

12: Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb. edit

14: Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web. edit

15: He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure. edit

16: He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden. edit

17: His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones. edit

18: If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee. edit

19: Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow. edit

20: Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers: edit

21: Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing. edit

22: They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought. edit
