Eliphaz: Innocent Do Not Suffer

1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite Ianswered,
  2 “If one ventures a word with you, will you become impatient?
  But awho can refrain Ifrom speaking?
  3 “Behold ayou have admonished many,
  And you have strengthened weak hands.
  4 “Your words have Ihelped the tottering to stand,
  And you have strengthened IIfeeble knees.
  5 “But now it has come to you, and you aare impatient;
  It btouches you, and you are dismayed.
  6 “Is not your Iafear [of God] byour confidence,
  And the integrity of your ways your hope?

  And bby the Iblast of His anger they come to an end.

  12 ¶ “Now a word awas brought to me stealthily,
  And my ear received a bwhisper of it.
  13 “Amid disquieting athoughts from the visions of the night,
  When deep sleep falls on men,
  14 Dread came upon me, and trembling,
  And made Iall my bones shake.
  15 “Then a Ispirit 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 amankind be just Ibefore God?
  Can a man be pure Ibefore his bMaker?
  18aHe puts no trust even in His servants;
  And against His angels He charges error.
  19 ‘How much more those who dwell in ahouses of clay,
  Whose bfoundation is in the dust,
  Who are crushed before the moth!
  20aBetween morning and evening they are broken in pieces;
  Unobserved, they bperish forever.
  21 ‘Is not their atent-cord plucked up within them?
  They die, yet bwithout wisdom.’

Eliphaz reproveth Job for want of religion.

1 ¶ Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said, 2 [If] we assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be grieved? but who can withhold himself from speaking? 3 Behold, thou hast instructed many, and thou hast strengthened the weak hands. 4 Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees. 5 But now it is come upon thee, and thou faintest; it toucheth thee, and thou art troubled. 6 [Is] not [this] thy fear, thy confidence, thy hope, and the uprightness of thy ways?

He teacheth God's judgment to be not for the righteous, but for the wicked.

7 Remember, I pray thee, who [ever] perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off? 8 Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. 9 By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed. 10 The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken. 11 The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad.

His fearful vision, to humble the excellency of creatures before God.

12 Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof. 13 In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, 14 Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake. 15 Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up: 16 It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image [was] before mine eyes, [there was] silence, and I heard a voice, [saying], 17 Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker? 18 Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly: 19 How much less [in] them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation [is] in the dust, [which] are crushed before the moth? 20 They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding [it]. 21 Doth not their excellency [which is] in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.
