you have strengthened those who were weak.
4 Your words have supported those who were falling;
you encouraged those with shaky knees.
5 But now when trouble strikes, you lose heart.
You are terrified when it touches you.
6 Doesn’t your reverence for God give you confidence?
Doesn’t your life of integrity give you hope?

and its wild animals will be at peace with you.
ok.. i get the animals…. but are the stones really an issue? do people have some sort of problem with not being at peace with stones? i mean, sometimes they are in inconvenient places… but to put being at peace with stone as the same as wild animals? these are stones “of the field”… it doesn’t even sound like they are being thrown.. lol
6 Don’t people complain about unsalted food?
Does anyone want the tasteless white of an egg?[e]

I gag at the thought of eating it!
lol!!! ok… even poor job doesn’t want egg whites… how many diets could use this advice in their planning… lol!
