Eliphaz: Innocent Do Not Suffer1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite ▼
▼ Lit answered and saidanswered, 2 “If one ventures a word with you, will you become impatient?
But b who can refrain ▼
▼ Lit in wordsfrom speaking?
3 “Behold d you have admonished many,
And you have strengthened weak hands.
4 “Your words have ▼
▼ Lit causedhelped the tottering to stand,
And you have strengthened ▼
▼ Lit bowingfeeble knees.
5 “But now it has come to you, and you g are impatient;
It h touches you, and you are dismayed.
6 “Is not your ▼
▼ Or reverence, j fear of God k your confidence,
And the integrity of your ways your hope?
7 “Remember now l who ever perished being innocent?
Or where were the upright destroyed?
8 “According to what I have seen m those who plow iniquity
And those who sow trouble harvest it.
9 “By n the breath of God they perish,
And o by the ▼
▼ Lit windblast of His anger they come to an end.
10 “The q roaring of the lion and the voice of the fierce lion,
And the teeth of the young lions are broken.
11 “The r lion perishes for lack of prey,
And the s whelps of the lioness are scattered.
12 “Now a word t was brought to me stealthily,
And my ear received a u whisper of it.
13 “Amid disquieting v thoughts from the visions of the night,
When deep sleep falls on men,
14 Dread came upon me, and trembling,
And made ▼
▼ Lit the multitude ofall my bones shake.
15 “Then a ▼
▼ Or breath passed overspirit passed by my face;
The hair of my flesh bristled up.
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:
17 ‘Can y mankind be just ▼
▼ Lit frombefore God?
Can a man be pure ▼
▼ Lit frombefore his ab Maker?
18 ‘ ac He puts no trust even in His servants;
And against His angels He charges error.
19 ‘How much more those who dwell in ad houses of clay,
Whose ae foundation is in the dust,
Who are crushed before the moth!
20 ‘ af Between morning and evening they are broken in pieces;
Unobserved, they ag perish forever.
21 ‘Is not their ah tent-cord plucked up within them?
They die, yet ai without wisdom.’
