Job 33:19-22

19-22"Or, God might get their attention through pain,

by throwing them on a bed of suffering,

So they can't stand the sight of food,

have no appetite for their favorite treats.

They lose weight, wasting away to nothing,

reduced to a bag of bones.

They hang on the cliff-edge of death,

knowing the next breath may be their last.

23-25"But even then an angel could come,

a champion—there are thousands of them!—

to take up your cause,

A messenger who would mercifully intervene,

canceling the death sentence with the words:

'I've come up with the ransom!'

Before you know it, you're healed,

the very picture of health!
