The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord! (Job 1:21; NLT).
Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? (Job 2:10; NIV).
In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind (Job 12:10; NIV).
The Lord gives both death and life (1 Samuel 2:6; NLT).
You give us
Light and darkness,
Joy and sorrow,
Birth and breath;
Health and sickness,
Pain and pleasure;
Love and anguish,
Life and death.
