Job, Chapter 4

4:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered, and said,
4:2 If one assay to commune with you, will you be grieved? But who can withhold himself from speaking?
4:3 Look, you have instructed many, And you have strengthened the weak hands.
4:4 Your words have upheld him who was falling, And you have made firm the feeble knees.
4:5 But now it has come to you, and you faint; It touches you, and you are troubled.
4:6 Isn't your fear [of God] your confidence, [And] the integrity of your ways your hope?
4:7 Remember, I pray you, who [ever] perished, being innocent? Or where were the upright cut off?
4:8 According to as I have seen, those who plow iniquity, And sow trouble, reap the same.
4:9 By the breath of God they perish, And by the blast of his anger are they consumed.
4:10 The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, And the teeth of the young lions, are broken.
4:11 The old lion perishes for lack of prey, And the whelps of the lioness are scattered abroad.
4:12 Now a thing was secretly brought to me, And my ear received a whisper of it.
4:13 In thoughts from the visions of the night, When deep sleep falls on men,
4:14 Fear came upon me, and trembling, Which made all my bones to shake.
4:15 Then a spirit passed before my face; The hair of my flesh stood up.
4:16 It stood still, but I could not discern its appearance; A form was before my eyes: [There was] silence, and I heard a voice [saying],
4:17 Will common man be more just than God? Will [noble] man be more pure than his Maker?
4:18 Look, he puts no trust in his slaves; And his angels he charges with folly:
4:19 How much more those who stay in houses of clay, Whose foundation is in the dust, Who are crushed before the moth!
4:20 Between morning and evening they are destroyed: They perish forever without any regarding it.
4:21 Is not their tent-cord plucked up inside them? They die, and that without wisdom.
