14Therefore they say vnto God, Depart from vs: for we desire not the knowledge of thy wayes. 15What is the Almightie, that wee should serue him? and what profite should we haue, if we pray vnto him? 16Loe, their good is not in their hand, the counsell of the wicked is farre from me.17How oft is the candle of the wicked put out? and how oft commeth their destruction vpon them? God distributeth sorrowes in his anger. 18They are as stubble before the winde, and as chaffe that the storme carieth away.
