Yet if you devote your heart to him
and stretch out your hands to him,
if you put away the sin that is in your hand
and allow no evil to dwell in your tent,
then you will lift up your face without shame;
you will stand firm and without fear
you will surely forget your trouble,
recalling it only as waters gone by.
Life will be brighter than noonday,
and darkness will become like morning.
You will be secure, and because there is hope;
you will look about you and
take your rest in safety.
You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid,
and many will court your favor.
-Job 11:13-19
