4 And Eliphaz the Temanite answered 2 “Shall we try a word to you? you will be impatient, but who can keep in words? 3 Here you have been schooling many and nerving slack hands; 4 Your words set a stumbling man on his feet and you braced failing knees; 5 Now that it comes to you you are impatient; it touches you and you are disconcerted. 6 Is not your piety your reliance and your conscientious life your hope? 7 Remember: what innocent man has perished, where were upright men annihilated? 8* As I see it, those who plow villainy and sow trouble reap it; 9 They perish by God’s breath, are made an end of by the air from his nostrils. 10 The lion’s roar, the voice of the king of beasts, and the two-year-old lion’s teeth, are broken, 11 The great lion perishes for lack of prey, and the lioness’s cubs lose touch with each other. 12* “And a word once stole upon me, my ear took in a whisper of it, 13 In thoughts brought by night visions when trances fall on men. 14* A terror beset me, and a quaking, and terrified every bone in me, 15 And a breeze ran over my face, made the hair on my flesh prickle up: 16** It stood there, but I could not make out what it looked like; There was a form before my eyes, I heard a hushed voice: 17 ‘Is a human being to be more in the right than God, a man to be cleaner than his Maker? 18* Why, he does not trust his own servants and charges his angels with frailties; 19 How much more those who inhabit houses of clay! such as have their foundations on the earth and are beaten down before a moth, 20 Between morning and evening they are shattered, are lost for all time without anyone’s noticing it. 21 A fiber pulls out within them and they die unaccountably.’
