Eliphaz: Job Has Sinned
Eliphaz Rebukes Job
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:1 - Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:2 - If one attempts a word with you, will you become weary?
But who can withhold himself from speaking?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:3 - Surely you have instructed many,
And you have strengthened weak hands.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:4 - Your words have upheld him who was stumbling,
And you have strengthened the feeble knees;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:5 - But now it comes upon you, and you are weary;
It touches you, and you are troubled.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:6 - Is not your reverence your confidence?
And the integrity of your ways your hope?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:7 - “Remember now, who ever perished being innocent?
Or where were the upright ever cut off?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:8 - Even as I have seen,
Those who plow iniquity
And sow trouble reap the same.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:9 - By the blast of God they perish,
And by the breath of His anger they are consumed.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:10 - The roaring of the lion,
The voice of the fierce lion,
And the teeth of the young lions are broken.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:11 - The old lion perishes for lack of prey,
And the cubs of the lioness are scattered.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:12 - “Now a word was secretly brought to me,
And my ear received a whisper of it.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:13 - In disquieting thoughts from the visions of the night,
When deep sleep falls on men,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:14 - Fear came upon me, and trembling,
Which made all my bones shake.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:15 - Then a spirit passed before my face;
The hair on my body stood up.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:16 - It stood still,
But I could not discern its appearance.
A form was before my eyes;
There was silence;
Then I heard a voice saying:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:17 - ‘Can a mortal be more righteous than God?
Can a man be more pure than his Maker?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:18 - If He puts no trust in His servants,
If He charges His angels with error,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:19 - How much more those who dwell in houses of clay,
Whose foundation is in the dust,
Who are crushed before a moth?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:20 - They are broken in pieces from morning till evening;
They perish forever, with no one regarding.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 4:21 - Does not their own excellence go away?
They die, even without wisdom.’
