15 He shall lean on his house, but it shall not stand.
He shall cling to it, but it shall not endure.
16 He is green before the sun.
His shoots go out along his garden.
17 His roots are wrapped around the rock pile.
He sees the place of stones.

I will put off my sad face, and cheer up;’
4 But you are forgers of lies.

and you have appointed his bounds that he can’t pass;
6 Look away from him, that he may rest,
until he shall accomplish, as a hireling, his day.
20 if his heart hasn’t blessed me,
if he hasn’t been warmed with my sheep’s fleece;
21 if I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless,
because I saw my help in the gate,
