Geneva Study Bible
   1: Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered,
   2: "Can a man be profitable to God? Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.
   3: Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that you are righteous? Or does it benefit him, that you make your ways perfect?
   4: Is it for your piety that he reproves you, That he enters with you into judgment?
   5: Isn't your wickedness great? Neither is there any end to your iniquities.
   6: For you have taken pledges from your brother for nothing, And stripped the naked of their clothing.
   7: You haven't given water to the weary to drink, And you have withheld bread from the hungry.
   8: But as for the mighty man, he had the earth. The honorable man, he lived in it.
   9: You have sent widows away empty, And the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
   10: Therefore snares are round about you. Sudden fear troubles you,
   11: Or darkness, so that you can not see, And floods of waters cover you.
   12: "Isn't God in the heights of heaven? See the height of the stars, how high they are!
   13: You say, 'What does God know? Can he judge through the thick darkness?
   14: Thick clouds are a covering to him, so that he doesn't see. He walks on the vault of the sky.'
   15: Will you 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 to 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; The innocent laugh them to scorn,
   20: Saying, 'Surely those who rose up against us are cut off, The fire has consumed the remnant of them.'
   21: "Acquaint yourself with him, now, and be at peace. Thereby good shall come to you.
   22: Please receive instruction from his mouth, And lay up his words in your heart.
   23: If you return to the Almighty, you shall be built up, If you put away unrighteousness far from your tents.
   24: Lay your treasure in the dust, The gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.
   25: The Almighty will be your treasure, Precious silver to you.
   26: For then shall you delight yourself in the Almighty, And shall lift up your face to God.
   27: You shall make your prayer to him, and he will hear you. You shall pay your vows.
   28: You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you. Light shall shine on your ways.
   29: When they cast down, you shall say, 'be lifted up.' He will save the humble person.
   30: He will even deliver him who is not innocent; Yes, he shall be delivered through the cleanness of your hands."
