Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:1 - Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:2 -
Should a wise man make answer with vain knowledge,
And fill himself with the east wind?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:3 -
Should he reason with unprofitable talk,
Or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:4 -
Yea, thou doest away with fear,
And hinderest devotion before God.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:5 -
For thine iniquity teacheth thy mouth,
And thou choosest the tongue of the crafty.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:6 -
Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I;
Yea, thine own lips testify against thee.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:7 -
Art thou the first man that was born?
Or wast thou brought forth before the hills?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:8 -
Hast thou heard the secret counsel of God?
And dost thou limit wisdom to thyself?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:9 -
What knowest thou, that we know not?
What understandest thou, which is not in us?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:10 -
With us are both the gray-headed and the very aged men,
Much elder than thy father.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:11 -
Are the consolations of God too small for thee,
Even the word that is gentle toward thee?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:12 -
Why doth thy heart carry thee away?
And why do thine eyes flash,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:13 -
That against God thou turnest thy spirit,
And lettest words go out of thy mouth?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:14 -
What is man, that he should be clean?
And he that is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:15 -
Behold, he putteth no trust in his holy ones;
Yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:16 -
How much less one that is abominable and corrupt,
A man that drinketh iniquity like water!

What Eliphaz Has Seen of Life

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:17 -
I will show thee, hear thou me;
And that which I have seen I will declare
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:18 -
(Which wise men have told
From their fathers, and have not hid it;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:19 -
Unto whom alone the land was given,
And no stranger passed among them):
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:20 -
The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days,
Even the number of years that are laid up for the oppressor.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:21 -
A sound of terrors is in his ears;
In prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:22 -
He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness,
And he is waited for of the sword.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:23 -
He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it?
He knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:24 -
Distress and anguish make him afraid;
They prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:25 -
Because he hath stretched out his hand against God,
And behaveth himself proudly against the Almighty;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:26 -
He runneth upon him with a stiff neck,
With the thick bosses of his bucklers;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:27 -
Because he hath covered his face with his fatness,
And gathered fat upon his loins;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:28 -
And he hath dwelt in desolate cities,
In houses which no man inhabited,
Which were ready to become heaps;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:29 -
He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue,
Neither shall their possessions be extended on the earth.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:30 -
He shall not depart out of darkness;
The flame shall dry up his branches,
And by the breath of God’s mouth shall he go away.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:31 -
Let him not trust in vanity, deceiving himself;
For vanity shall be his recompense.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:32 -
It shall be accomplished before his time,
And his branch shall not be green.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:33 -
He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine,
And shall cast off his flower as the olive-tree.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:34 -
For the company of the godless shall be barren,
And fire shall consume the tents of bribery.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:35 -
They conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity,
And their heart prepareth deceit.
