Geneva Study Bible
   1: And Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
   2: Can a man be profitable to God? surely it is unto himself that the wise man is profitable.
   3: Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if thou art righteous? And is it gain [to him] that thou makest thy ways perfect?
   4: Will he reason with thee for fear of thee? Will he enter with thee into judgment?
   5: Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities without end?
   6: For thou hast taken a pledge of thy brother for nought, and stripped off the clothing of the naked.
   7: Thou hast not given water to the fainting to drink, and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.
   8: But the powerful man, he had the land; and the man of high rank dwelt in it.
   9: Widows hast thou sent empty away, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
   10: Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden fear troubleth thee;
   11: Or darkness, that thou canst not see, and floods of waters cover thee.
   12: Is not God in the height of the heavens? And behold the summit of the stars: how exalted are they!
   13: And thou sayest, What doth God know? will he judge through the dark cloud?
   14: Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh on the vault of the heavens.
   15: Dost thou mark the ancient path which wicked men have trodden?
   16: Who were carried off before the time, whose foundation was overflowed with a flood;
   17: Who said unto God, Depart from us! and what could the Almighty do to them?
   18: Yet he filled their houses with good. 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: Is not he who rose against us destroyed, and doth not the fire consume his residue?
   21: Reconcile thyself now with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.
   22: Receive, I pray thee, instruction 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 remove unrighteousness far from thy tents,
   24: And put the precious ore with the dust, and [the gold of] Ophir among the stones of the torrents,
   25: Then the Almighty will be thy precious ore, and silver heaped up unto thee;
   26: Yea, 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: And thou shalt decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee; and light shall shine upon thy ways.
   29: When they are made low, then thou shalt say, Rise up! and he shall save him that is of downcast eyes.
   30: [Even] him that is not innocent shall he deliver; yea, he shall be delivered by the pureness of thy hands.
