Job 36:14-16 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 They[a] die in youth,
And their life ends among the [b]perverted persons.
15 He delivers the poor in their affliction,
And opens their ears in oppression.

16 “Indeed He would have brought you out of dire distress,
Into a broad place where there is no restraint;
And what is set on your table would be full of richness.

    to a spacious place free from restriction,
    to the comfort of your table laden with choice food.
