Job 3:1-26
1. Afterward Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth.
2. And Job said,
3. "Let the day perish on which I was to be born, And the night which said, 'A boy is conceived.'
4. "May that day be darkness; Let not God above care for it, Nor light shine on it.
5. "Let darkness and black gloom claim it; Let a cloud settle on it; Let the blackness of the day terrify it.
6. "As for that night, let darkness seize it; Let it not rejoice among the days of the year; Let it not come into the number of the months.
7. "Behold, let that night be barren; Let no joyful shout enter it.
8. "Let those curse it who curse the day, Who are prepared to rouse Leviathan.
9. "Let the stars of its twilight be darkened; Let it wait for light but have none, And let it not see the breaking dawn;
10. Because it did not shut the opening of my mother's womb, Or hide trouble from my eyes.
11. "Why did I not die at birth, Come forth from the womb and expire?
12. "Why did the knees receive me, And why the breasts, that I should suck?
13. "For now I would have lain down and been quiet; I would have slept then, I would have been at rest,
14. With kings and with counselors of the earth, Who rebuilt ruins for themselves;
15. Or with princes who had gold, Who were filling their houses with silver.
16. "Or like a miscarriage which is discarded, I would not be, As infants that never saw light.
17. "There the wicked cease from raging, And there the weary are at rest.
18. "The prisoners are at ease together; They do not hear the voice of the taskmaster.
19. "The small and the great are there, And the slave is free from his master.
20. "Why is light given to him who suffers, And life to the bitter of soul,
21. Who long for death, but there is none, And dig for it more than for hidden treasures,
22. Who rejoice greatly, And exult when they find the grave?
23. "Why is light given to a man whose way is hidden, And whom God has hedged in?
24. "For my groaning comes at the sight of my food, And my cries pour out like water.
25. "For what I fear comes upon me, And what I dread befalls me.
26. "I am not at ease, nor am I quiet, And I am not at rest, but turmoil comes."

Job 4:1-21
1. Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered,
2. "If one ventures a word with you, will you become impatient? But who can refrain from speaking?
3. "Behold you have admonished many, And you have strengthened weak hands.
4. "Your words have helped the tottering to stand, And you have strengthened feeble knees.
5. "But now it has come to you, and you are impatient; It touches you, and you are dismayed.
6. "Is not your fear of God your confidence, And the integrity of your ways your hope?
7. "Remember now, who ever perished being innocent? Or where were the upright destroyed?
8. "According to what I have seen, those who plow iniquity And those who sow trouble harvest it.
9. "By the breath of God they perish, And by the blast of His anger they come to an end.
10. "The roaring of the lion and the voice of the fierce lion, And the teeth of the young lions are broken.
11. "The lion perishes for lack of prey, And the whelps of the lioness are scattered.
12. "Now a word was brought to me stealthily, And my ear received a whisper of it.
13. "Amid disquieting thoughts from the visions of the night, When deep sleep falls on men,
14. Dread came upon me, and trembling, And made all my bones shake.
15. "Then a spirit passed by my face; The hair of my flesh bristled up.
16. "It stood still, but I could not discern its appearance; A form was before my eyes; There was silence, then I heard a voice:
17. 'Can mankind be just before God? Can a man be pure before his Maker?
18. 'He puts no trust even in His servants; And against His angels He charges error.
19. 'How much more those who dwell in houses of clay, Whose foundation is in the dust, Who are crushed before the moth!
20. 'Between morning and evening they are broken in pieces; Unobserved, they perish forever.
21. 'Is not their tent-cord plucked up within them? They die, yet without wisdom.'

Psalms 91:14-16
14. "Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
15. "He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him.
16. "With a long life I will satisfy him And let him see My salvation."

Proverbs 22:15-15
15. Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of discipline will remove it far from him.

Romans 8:1-21
1. Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
2. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
3. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
4. so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5. For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
6. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
7. because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
8. and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9. However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
10. If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
11. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
12. So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh--
13. for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
14. For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
15. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "Abba! Father!"
16. The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,
17. and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
18. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
19. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
20. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
21. that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
