“Hee keepeth backe his soule from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.”
King James Version (KJV)
15. In a dreame, in a vision of the night, when deepe sleepe falleth vpon men, in slumbrings vpon the bed: 16. Then hee openeth the eares of men, and sealeth their instruction, 17. That hee may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. 18. Hee keepeth backe his soule from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword. 19. Hee is chastened also with paine vpon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong paine. 20. So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soule daintie meate. 21. His flesh is consumed away that it cannot be seene; and his bones that were not seene, sticke out.
