  4 H5158 The flood H6555 [H8804] breaketh out H1481 [H8802] from the inhabitant; H7911 [H8737] even the waters forgotten H7272 by the foot: H1809 [H8804] they are dried up, H5128 [H8804] they have gone away H582 from men.
  5 H776 As for the earth, H3318 [H8799] out of it cometh H3899 bread: H2015 [H8738] and under it is turned up H784 as it were fire.

  19 H6357 The topaz H3568 of Cush H6186 [H8799] shall not equal H5541 [H8792] it, neither shall it be valued H2889 with pure H3800 gold.

  21 H5956 [H8738] Seeing it is hid H5869 from the eyes H2416 of all living, H5641 [H8738] and kept close H5775 from the fowls H8064 of the air.
  22 H11 The Place of Loss H4194 and death H559 [H8804] say, H8085 [H8804] We have heard H8088 the fame H241 of it with our ears.
  23 H430 God H995 [H8689] understandeth H1870 the way H3045 [H8804] of it, and he knoweth H4725 its place.
  24 H5027 [H8686] For he looketh H7098 to the ends H776 of the earth, H7200 [H8799] and seeth H8064 under the whole heaven;
  25 H6213 [H8800] To make H4948 the weight H7307 for the winds; H8505 [H8765] and he weigheth H4325 the waters H4060 by measure.
  26 H6213 [H8800] When he made H2706 a decree H4306 for the rain, H1870 and a way H2385 for the lightning H6963 of the thunder:
  27 H7200 [H8804] Then did he see H5608 [H8762] it, and declare H3559 [H8689] it; he prepared H2713 [H8804] it, yea, and searched it out.
  28 H120 And to man H559 [H8799] he said, H3374 Behold, the fear H136 of the Lord, H2451 that is wisdom; H5493 [H8800] and to depart H7451 from evil H998 is understanding.
