Bible verses about "happiness" | NHEB

Job 5:17-27

17 "Look, blessed is the man whom God corrects. Therefore do not despise the chastening of Shaddai. 18 For he wounds, and binds up. He injures, and his hands make whole. 19 He will deliver you in six troubles; yes, in seven there shall no evil touch you. 20 In famine he will redeem you from death; in war, from the power of the sword. 21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes. 22 At destruction and famine you shall laugh, neither shall you be afraid of the animals of the earth. 23 For you shall be in league with the stones of the field. The animals of the field shall be at peace with you. 24 You shall know that your tent is in peace. You shall visit your fold, and shall miss nothing. 25 You shall know also that your descendants shall be great, and your offspring as the grass of the earth. 26 You shall come to your grave in a full age, like a shock of grain comes in its season. 27 Look this, we have searched it, so it is. Hear it, and know it for your good."
