018:022:001
Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,


018:022:002
Can a man be profitable unto God,
as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself?


018:022:003
Is it any pleasure to the Almighty,
that thou art righteous?
or is it gain to him,
that thou makest thy ways perfect?


018:022:004
Will he reprove thee for fear of thee?
will he enter with thee into judgment?


018:022:005
Is not thy wickedness great?
and thine iniquities infinite?


018:022:006
For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought,
and stripped the naked of their clothing.


018:022:007
Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink,
and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.


018:022:008
But as for the mighty man,
he had the earth;
and the honourable man dwelt in it.


018:022:009
Thou hast sent widows away empty,
and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.


018:022:010
Therefore snares are round about thee,
and sudden fear troubleth thee;


018:022:011
Or darkness,
that thou canst not see;
and abundance of waters cover thee.


018:022:012
Is not God in the height of heaven?
and behold the height of the stars,
how high they are!


018:022:013
And thou sayest,
How doth God know?
can he judge through the dark cloud?


018:022:014
Thick clouds are a covering to him,
that he seeth not;
and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.


018:022:015
Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?


018:022:016
Which were cut down out of time,
whose foundation was overflown with a flood:


018:022:017
Which said unto God,
Depart from us:
and what can the Almighty do for them?


018:022:018
Yet he filled their houses with good things:
but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.


018:022:019
The righteous see it,
and are glad:
and the innocent laugh them to scorn.


018:022:020
Whereas our substance is not cut down,
but the remnant of them the fire consumeth.


018:022:021
Acquaint now thyself with him,
and be at peace:
thereby good shall come unto thee.


018:022:022
Receive,
I pray thee,
the law from his mouth,
and lay up his words in thine heart.


018:022:023
If thou return to the Almighty,
thou shalt be built up,
thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.


018:022:024
Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust,
and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.


018:022:025
Yea,
the Almighty shall be thy defence,
and thou shalt have plenty of silver.


018:022:026
For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty,
and shalt lift up thy face unto God.


018:022:027
Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him,
and he shall hear thee,
and thou shalt pay thy vows.


018:022:028
Thou shalt also decree a thing,
and it shall be established unto thee:
and the light shall shine upon thy ways.


018:022:029
When men are cast down,
then thou shalt say,
There is lifting up;
and he shall save the humble person.


018:022:030
He shall deliver the island of the innocent:
and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands.
