018:015:001
Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite,
and said,


018:015:002
Should a wise man utter vain knowledge,
and fill his belly with the east wind?


018:015:003
Should he reason with unprofitable talk?
or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?


018:015:004
Yea,
thou castest off fear,
and restrainest prayer before God.


018:015:005
For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity,
and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty.


018:015:006
Thine own mouth condemneth thee,
and not I:
yea,
thine own lips testify against thee.


018:015:007
Art thou the first man that was born?
or wast thou made before the hills?


018:015:008
Hast thou heard the secret of God?
and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?


018:015:009
What knowest thou,
that we know not?
what understandest thou,
which is not in us?


018:015:010
With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men,
much elder than thy father.


018:015:011
Are the consolations of God small with thee?
is there any secret thing with thee?


018:015:012
Why doth thine heart carry thee away?
and what do thy eyes wink at,


018:015:013
That thou turnest thy spirit against God,
and lettest such words go out of thy mouth?


018:015:014
What is man,
that he should be clean?
and he which is born of a woman,
that he should be righteous?


018:015:015
Behold,
he putteth no trust in his saints;
yea,
the heavens are not clean in his sight.


018:015:016
How much more abominable and filthy is man,
which drinketh iniquity like water?


018:015:017
I will shew thee,
hear me;
and that which I have seen I will declare;


018:015:018
Which wise men have told from their fathers,
and have not hid it:


018:015:019
Unto whom alone the earth was given,
and no stranger passed among them.


018:015:020
The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days,
and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.


018:015:021
A dreadful sound is in his ears:
in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.


018:015:022
He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness,
and he is waited for of the sword.


018:015:023
He wandereth abroad for bread,
saying,
Where is it?
he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.


018:015:024
Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid;
they shall prevail against him,
as a king ready to the battle.


018:015:025
For he stretcheth out his hand against God,
and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty.


018:015:026
He runneth upon him,
even on his neck,
upon the thick bosses of his bucklers:


018:015:027
Because he covereth his face with his fatness,
and maketh collops of fat on his flanks.


018:015:028
And he dwelleth in desolate cities,
and in houses which no man inhabiteth,
which are ready to become heaps.


018:015:029
He shall not be rich,
neither shall his substance continue,
neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth.


018:015:030
He shall not depart out of darkness;
the flame shall dry up his branches,
and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.


018:015:031
Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity:
for vanity shall be his recompence.


018:015:032
It shall be accomplished before his time,
and his branch shall not be green.


018:015:033
He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine,
and shall cast off his flower as the olive.


018:015:034
For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate,
and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.


018:015:035
They conceive mischief,
and bring forth vanity,
and their belly prepareth deceit.
