Geneva Study Bible
   1: Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,
   2: Can a man be profitable unto God? Surely he that is wise is profitable unto himself.
   3: Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? Or is it gain [to him], that thou makest thy ways perfect?
   4: Is it for thy fear [of him] that he reproveth thee, That he entereth with thee into judgment?
   5: Is not thy wickedness great? Neither is there any end to thine iniquities.
   6: For thou hast taken pledges of thy brother for nought, And stripped the naked of their clothing.
   7: Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink, And thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.
   8: But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; And the honorable man, he dwelt in it.
   9: Thou hast sent widows away empty, And the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
   10: Therefore snares are round about thee, And sudden fear troubleth thee,
   11: Or darkness, so that thou canst not see, And abundance of waters cover thee.
   12: Is not God in the height of heaven? And behold the height of the stars, how high they are!
   13: And thou sayest, What doth God know? Can he judge through the thick darkness?
   14: Thick clouds are a covering to him, so that he seeth not; And he walketh on the vault of heaven.
   15: Wilt thou keep the old way Which wicked men have trodden?
   16: Who were snatched away before their time, Whose foundation was poured out as a stream,
   17: Who said unto God, Depart from us; And, What can the Almighty do for us?
   18: Yet he filled their houses with good things: But the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
   19: The righteous see it, and are glad; And the innocent laugh them to scorn,
   20: [Saying], Surely they that did rise up against us are cut off, And the remnant of them the fire hath consumed.
   21: Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: Thereby good shall come unto thee.
   22: Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, And lay up his words in thy heart.
   23: If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, If thou put away unrighteousness far from thy tents.
   24: And lay thou [thy] treasure in the dust, And [the gold of] Ophir among the stones of the brooks;
   25: And the Almighty will be thy treasure, And precious silver unto thee.
   26: For then shalt thou delight thyself in the Almighty, And shalt lift up thy face unto God.
   27: Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he will hear thee; And thou shalt pay thy vows.
   28: Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee; And light shall shine upon thy ways.
   29: When they cast [thee] down, thou shalt say, [There is] lifting up; And the humble person he will save.
   30: He will deliver [even] him that is not innocent: Yea, he shall be delivered through the cleanness of thy hands.
