    Job 21

    1 Then Job answered and said:
    2 "Listen carefully to my speech, And let this be your consolation.
    3 Bear with me that I may speak, And after I have spoken, keep mocking.
    4 "As for me, is my complaint against man? And if it were, why should I not be impatient?
    5 Look at me and be astonished; Put your hand over your mouth.
    6 Even when I remember I am terrified, And trembling takes hold of my flesh.
    7 Why do the wicked live and become old, Yes, become mighty in power?
    8 Their descendants are established with them in their sight, And their offspring before their eyes.
    9 Their houses are safe from fear, Neither is the rod of God upon them.
    10 Their bull breeds without failure; Their cow calves without miscarriage.
    11 They send forth their little ones like a flock, And their children dance.
    12 They sing to the tambourine and harp, And rejoice to the sound of the flute.
    13 They spend their days in wealth, And in a moment go down to the grave.
    14 Yet they say to God, "Depart from us, For we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.
    15 Who is the Almighty, that we should serve Him? And what profit do we have if we pray to Him?'
    16 Indeed their prosperity is not in their hand; The counsel of the wicked is far from me.
    17 "How often is the lamp of the wicked put out? How often does their destruction come upon them, The sorrows God distributes in His anger?
    18 They are like straw before the wind, And like chaff that a storm carries away.
    19 They say, "God lays up one's iniquity for his children'; Let Him recompense him, that he may know it.
    20 Let his eyes see his destruction, And let him drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
    21 For what does he care about his household after him, When the number of his months is cut in half?
    22 "Can anyone teach God knowledge, Since He judges those on high?
    23 One dies in his full strength, Being wholly at ease and secure;
    24 His pails are full of milk, And the marrow of his bones is moist.
    25 Another man dies in the bitterness of his soul, Never having eaten with pleasure.
    26 They lie down alike in the dust, And worms cover them.
    27 "Look, I know your thoughts, And the schemes with which you would wrong me.
    28 For you say, "Where is the house of the prince? And where is the tent, The dwelling place of the wicked?'
    29 Have you not asked those who travel the road? And do you not know their signs?
    30 For the wicked are reserved for the day of doom; They shall be brought out on the day of wrath.
    31 Who condemns his way to his face? And who repays him for what he has done?
    32 Yet he shall be brought to the grave, And a vigil kept over the tomb.
    33 The clods of the valley shall be sweet to him; Everyone shall follow him, As countless have gone before him.
    34 How then can you comfort me with empty words, Since falsehood remains in your answers?"

    Hebrews 5

    1 For every high priest taken from among men is appointed for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.
    2 He can have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray, since he himself is also subject to weakness.
    3 Because of this he is required as for the people, so also for himself, to offer sacrifices for sins.
    4 And no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God, just as Aaron was.
    5 So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You."
    6 As He also says in another place: "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek";
    7 who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear,
    8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
    9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,
    10 called by God as High Priest "according to the order of Melchizedek,"
    11 of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.
    12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
    13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.
    14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

    Psalms 46

    1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
    2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
    3 Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling.Selah
    4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
    5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
    6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
    7 The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge.Selah
    8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, Who has made desolations in the earth.
    9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
    10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
    11 The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge.Selah

    Proverbs 05

    1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; Lend your ear to my understanding,
    2 That you may preserve discretion, And your lips may keep knowledge.
    3 For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;
    4 But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.
    5 Her feet go down to death, Her steps lay hold of hell.
    6 Lest you ponder her path of life-- Her ways are unstable; You do not know them.
    7 Therefore hear me now, my children, And do not depart from the words of my mouth.
    8 Remove your way far from her, And do not go near the door of her house,
    9 Lest you give your honor to others, And your years to the cruel one;
    10 Lest aliens be filled with your wealth, And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;
    11 And you mourn at last, When your flesh and your body are consumed,
    12 And say: "How I have hated instruction, And my heart despised correction!
    13 I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
    14 I was on the verge of total ruin, In the midst of the assembly and congregation."
    15 Drink water from your own cistern, And running water from your own well.
    16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?
    17 Let them be only your own, And not for strangers with you.
    18 Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
    19 As a loving deer and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; And always be enraptured with her love.
    20 For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman, And be embraced in the arms of a seductress?
    21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths.
    22 His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, And he is caught in the cords of his sin.
    23 He shall die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
