Then EliphazH464 the TemaniteH8489 answeredH6030 and said,H559
Can a manH1397 be profitableH5532 to God,H410 as he that is wiseH7919 may be profitableH5532 to himself?H5315
Is it any pleasureH2656 to the Almighty,H7706 that you are righteous?H6663 or is it gainH1214 to him, that you make your waysH1870 perfect?H8552
Will he reproveH3198 you for fearH3374 of you? will he enterH935 with you into judgment?H4941
Is not your wickednessH7451 great?H7227 and your iniquitiesH5771 infinite?H369
For you have takenH2254 a pledgeH2254 from your brotherH251 for nothing,H2600 and strippedH6584 the nakedH6174 of their clothing.H899
You have not given waterH4325 to the wearyH5889 to drink,H8248 and you have withheldH4513 breadH3899 from the hungry.H7456
But as for the mightyH2220 man,H376 he had the earth;H776 and the honorableH5375 H6440 man dwelledH3427 in it.
You have sentH7971 widowsH490 away empty,H7387 and the armsH2220 of the fatherlessH3490 have been broken.H1792
ThereforeH5921 H3651 snaresH6341 are roundH5439 about you, and suddenH6597 fearH6343 troublesH926 you;
OrH176 darkness,H2822 that you can not see;H7200 and abundanceH8229 of watersH4325 coverH3680 you.
Is not GodH433 in the heightH1363 of heaven?H8064 and beholdH7200 the heightH7218 of the stars,H3556 howH3588 highH7311 they are!
And you say,H559 HowH4100 does GodH410 know?H3045 can he judgeH8199 through the darkH6205 cloud?H6205
Thick cloudsH5645 are a coveringH5643 to him, that he seesH7200 not; and he walksH1980 in the circuitH2329 of heaven.H8064
Have you markedH8104 the oldH5769 wayH734 whichH834 wickedH205 menH4962 have trodden?H1869
WhichH834 were cutH7059 down out of time,H6256 whose foundationH3247 was overflowedH3332 with a flood:H5104
Which saidH559 to God,H410 DepartH5493 from us: and whatH4100 can the AlmightyH7706 doH6466 for them?
Yet he filledH4390 their housesH1004 with goodH2896 things: but the counselH6098 of the wickedH7563 is farH7350 from me.
The righteousH6662 seeH7200 it, and are glad:H8056 and the innocentH5355 laughH3932 them to scorn.
WhereasH518 our substanceH7009 is not cutH3582 down, but the remnantH3499 of them the fireH784 consumes.H398
AcquaintH5532 nowH4994 yourself with him, and be at peace:H7999 thereby goodH2896 shall comeH935 to you.
Receive,H3947 I prayH4994 you, the lawH8451 from his mouth,H6310 and layH7760 up his wordsH561 in your heart.H3824
IfH518 you returnH7725 to the Almighty,H7706 you shall be builtH1129 up, you shall put awayH7368 iniquityH5766 farH7350 from your tabernacles.H168
Then shall you layH7896 up goldH1220 as dust,H6083 and the gold of OphirH211 as the stonesH6697 of the brooks.H5158
Yes, the AlmightyH7706 shall be your defense,H1220 and you shall have plentyH8443 of silver.H3701
For thenH227 shall you have your delightH6026 in the Almighty,H7706 and shall liftH5375 up your faceH6440 to God.H433
You shall make your prayerH6279 to him, and he shall hearH8085 you, and you shall payH7999 your vows.H5088
You shall also decreeH1504 a thing,H562 and it shall be establishedH6965 to you: and the lightH216 shall shineH5050 on your ways.H1870
WhenH3588 men are castH8213 down,H8213 then you shall say,H559 There is liftingH1466 up; and he shall saveH3467 the humbleH7807 person.
He shall deliverH4422 the islandH336 of the innocent:H5355 and it is deliveredH4422 by the purenessH1252 of your hands.H3709
