Second Series of Speeches
Eliphaz Speaks

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:1 -

Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:2 -

Does a wise man answer with empty[fn] counsel

or fill himself[fn] with the hot east wind?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:3 -

Should he argue with useless talk

or with words that serve no good purpose?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:4 -

But you even undermine the fear of God

and hinder meditation before him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:5 -

Your iniquity teaches you what to say,

and you choose the language of the crafty.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:6 -

Your own mouth condemns you, not I;

your own lips testify against you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:7 -

Were you the first human ever born,

or were you brought forth before the hills?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:8 -

Do you listen in on the council of God,

or have a monopoly on wisdom?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:9 -

What do you know that we don’t?

What do you understand that is not clear to us?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:10 -

Both the gray-haired and the elderly are with us—

older than your father.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:11 -

Are God’s consolations not enough for you,

even the words that deal gently with you?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:12 -

Why has your heart misled you,

and why do your eyes flash

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:13 -

as you turn your anger[fn] against God

and allow such words to leave your mouth?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:14 -

What is a mere human, that he should be pure,

or one born of a woman, that he should be righteous?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:15 -

If God puts no trust in his holy ones

and the heavens are not pure in his sight,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:16 -

how much less one who is revolting and corrupt,

who drinks injustice like water?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:17 -

Listen to me and I will inform you.

I will describe what I have seen,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:18 -

what the wise have declared and not concealed, 

that came from their ancestors,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:19 -

to whom alone the land was given

when no foreigner passed among them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:20 -

A wicked person writhes in pain all his days,

throughout the number of years reserved for the ruthless.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:21 -

Dreadful sounds fill his ears;

when he is at peace, a robber attacks him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:22 -

He doesn’t believe he will return from darkness;

he is destined for the sword.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:23 -

He wanders about for food, asking, “Where is it? ”

He knows the day of darkness is at hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:24 -

Trouble and distress terrify him,

overwhelming him like a king prepared for battle.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:25 -

For he has stretched out his hand against God

and has arrogantly opposed the Almighty.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:26 -

He rushes headlong at him

with his thick, studded shields.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:27 -

Though his face is covered with fat[fn]

and his waistline bulges with it,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:28 -

he will dwell in ruined cities,

in abandoned houses destined to become piles of rubble.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:29 -

He will no longer be rich; his wealth will not endure.

His possessions[fn] will not increase in the land.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:30 -

He will not escape from the darkness;

flames will wither his shoots,

and by the breath of God’s mouth, he will depart.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:31 -

Let him not put trust in worthless things, being led astray,

for what he gets in exchange will prove worthless.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:32 -

It will be accomplished before his time,

and his branch will not flourish.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:33 -

He will be like a vine that drops its unripe grapes

and like an olive tree that sheds its blossoms.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:34 -

For the company of the godless will have no children,

and fire will consume the tents of those who offer bribes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 15:35 -

They conceive trouble and give birth to evil;

their womb prepares deception.
