018:004:001
Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,


018:004:002
If we assay to commune with thee,
wilt thou be grieved?
but who can withhold himself from speaking?


018:004:003
Behold,
thou hast instructed many,
and thou hast strengthened the weak hands.


018:004:004
Thy words have upholden him that was falling,
and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees.


018:004:005
But now it is come upon thee,
and thou faintest;
it toucheth thee,
and thou art troubled.


018:004:006
Is not this thy fear,
thy confidence,
thy hope,
and the uprightness of thy ways?


018:004:007
Remember,
I pray thee,
who ever perished,
being innocent?
or where were the righteous cut off?


018:004:008
Even as I have seen,
they that plow iniquity,
and sow wickedness,
reap the same.


018:004:009
By the blast of God they perish,
and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed.


018:004:010
The roaring of the lion,
and the voice of the fierce lion,
and the teeth of the young lions,
are broken.


018:004:011
The old lion perisheth for lack of prey,
and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad.


018:004:012
Now a thing was secretly brought to me,
and mine ear received a little thereof.


018:004:013
In thoughts from the visions of the night,
when deep sleep falleth on men,


018:004:014
Fear came upon me,
and trembling,
which made all my bones to shake.


018:004:015
Then a spirit passed before my face;
the hair of my flesh stood up:


018:004:016
It stood still,
but I could not discern the form thereof:
an image was before mine eyes,
there was silence,
and I heard a voice,
saying,


018:004:017
Shall mortal man be more just than God?
shall a man be more pure than his maker?


018:004:018
Behold,
he put no trust in his servants;
and his angels he charged with folly:


018:004:019
How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay,
whose foundation is in the dust,
which are crushed before the moth?


018:004:020
They are destroyed from morning to evening:
they perish for ever without any regarding it.


018:004:021
Doth not their excellency which is in them go away?
they die,
even without wisdom.
