Geneva Study Bible
   1: And Eliphaz the Temanite made answer and said,
   2: If one says a word, will it be a weariness to you? but who is able to keep from saying what is in his mind?
   3: Truly, you have been a helper to others, and you have made feeble hands strong;
   4: He who was near to falling has been lifted up by your words, and you have given strength to bent knees.
   5: But now it has come on you and it is a weariness to you; you are touched by it and your mind is troubled.
   6: Is not your fear of God your support, and your upright way of life your hope?
   7: Have you ever seen destruction come to an upright man? or when were the god-fearing ever cut off?
   8: What I have seen is that those by whom trouble has been ploughed, and evil planted, get the same for themselves.
   9: By the breath of God destruction takes them, and by the wind of his wrath they are cut off.
   10: Though the noise of the lion and the sounding of his voice, may be loud, the teeth of the young lions are broken.
   11: The old lion comes to his end for need of food, and the young of the she-lion go wandering in all directions.
   12: A word was given to me secretly, and the low sound of it came to my ears.
   13: In troubled thoughts from visions of the night, when deep sleep comes on men,
   14: Fear came on me and shaking, and my bones were full of trouble;
   15: And a breath was moving over my face; the hair of my flesh became stiff:
   16: Something was present before me, but I was not able to see it clearly; there was a form before my eyes: a quiet voice came to my ears, saying:
   17: May a man be upright before God? or a man be clean before his Maker?
   18: Truly, he puts no faith in his servants, and he sees error in his angels;
   19: How much more those living in houses of earth, whose bases are in the dust! They are crushed more quickly than an insect;
   20: Between morning and evening they are completely broken; they come to an end for ever, and no one takes note.
   21: If their tent-cord is pulled up, do they not come to an end, and without wisdom?
