Eliphaz’s First Response to Job

4Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied to Job.H464H8489H6030H559 2"Will you be patient and let me say a word? For who could keep from speaking out?H5254H1697H3811H3201H6113H4405 3"In the past you have encouraged many people; you have strengthened those who were weak.H3256H7227H2388H7504H3027 4Your words have supported those who were falling; you encouraged those with shaky knees.H4405H6965H3782H553H3766H1290 5But now when trouble strikes, you lose heart. You are terrified when it touches you.H935H3811H5060H926 6Doesn't your reverence for God give you confidence? Doesn't your life of integrity give you hope?H3374H3690H8615H8537H1870 7"Stop and think! Do the innocent die? When have the upright been destroyed?H2142H6H5355H375H3477H3582 8My experience shows that those who plant trouble and cultivate evil will harvest the same.H7200H2790H205H2232H5999H7114 9A breath from God destroys them. They vanish in a blast of his anger.H5397H433H6H7307H639H3615 10The lion roars and the wildcat snarls, but the teeth of strong lions will be broken.H7581H738H6963H7826H8127H3715H5421 11The fierce lion will starve for lack of prey, and the cubs of the lioness will be scattered.H3918H6H1097H2964H3833H1121H6504 12"This truth was given to me in secret, as though whispered in my ear.H1697H1589H241H3947H8102 13It came to me in a disturbing vision at night, when people are in a deep sleep.H5587H2384H3915H8639H5307H582 14Fear gripped me, and my bones trembled.H6343H7122H7461H7230H6106H6342 15A spirit swept past my face, and my hair stood on end.H7307H2498H6440H8185H1320H5568 16The spirit stopped, but I couldn't see its shape. There was a form before my eyes. In the silence I heard a voice say,H5975H5234H4758H8544H5869H1827H8085H6963 17'Can a mortal be innocent before God? Can anyone be pure before the Creator?'H582H6663H433H1397H2891H6213 18"If God does not trust his own angels and has charged his messengers with foolishness,H539H5650H4397H7760H8417 19how much less will he trust people made of clay! They are made of dust, crushed as easily as a moth.H637H7931H1004H2563H3247H6083H1792H6440H6211 20They are alive in the morning but dead by evening, gone forever without a trace.H3807H1242H6153H6H5331H7760 21Their tent-cords are pulled and the tent collapses, and they die in ignorance.H3499H5265H4191H2451
