5:9 Who doeth great things, beyond all search,Wondrous things, till they cannot be recounted;
5:10 Who giveth rain, upon the face of the earth, and sendeth forth waters, over the face of the open fields;
5:11 Setting the lowly on high, and, mourners, are uplifted to safety;
5:12 Who doth frustrate the schemes of the crafty, that their hands cannot achieve abiding success;

5:23 For, with the stones of the field, shall be thy covenant, and, the wild beast of the field, hath been made thy friend;
5:24 And thou shalt know that, at peace, is thy tent, and shalt visit thy fold, and miss nothing;
5:25 And thou shalt know, that numerous is thy seed, and, thine offspring, like the young shoots of the field.
5:26 Thou shalt come, yet robust, to the grave, as a stack of sheaves mounteth up in its season.
5:27 Lo! as for this, we have searched it outso, it is, Hear it, and know, thou, for thyself.
