A (8,9) Understand, ye brutish among THE PEOPLE: and ye fools, when will ye be wise? He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
B (10) HE THAT CHASTISETH the heathen, shall not he correct? HE THAT TEACHETH man knowledge, shall not he know?
C (11) Yahweh knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
B1 (12,13) Blessed is the man whom THOU CHASTENEST, O Yah, and TEACHEST him out of thy law; That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
A1 (14) For Yahweh will not cast off HIS PEOPLE, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
