The Book of Job (WEB)

4:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered,

 4:2"If someone ventures to talk with you, will you be grieved?
      But who can withhold himself from speaking?

 4:3Behold, you have instructed many,
      You have strengthened the weak hands.

 4:4Your words have supported him who was falling,
      You have made firm the feeble knees.

 4:5But now it is come to you, and you faint;
      It touches you, and you are troubled.

 4:6Isn't your piety your confidence,
      The integrity of your ways your hope?

  4:7"Remember, now, whoever perished, being innocent?
      Or where were the upright cut off?

 4:8According to what I have seen, those who plow iniquity,
      And sow trouble,
      Reap the same.

 4:9By the breath of God they perish,
      By the blast of his anger are they consumed.

 4:10The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion,
      The teeth of the young lions, are broken.

 4:11The old lion perishes for lack of prey,
      The whelps of the lioness are scattered abroad.

  4:12"Now a thing was secretly brought to me,
      My ear received a whisper of it.

 4:13In thoughts from the visions of the night,
      When deep sleep falls on men,

 4:14Fear came on me, and trembling,
      Which made all my bones shake.

 4:15Then a spirit passed before my face;
      The hair of my flesh stood up.

 4:16It stood still, but I couldn't discern the appearance of it;
      A form was before my eyes.
      Silence, then I heard a voice, saying,

 4:17'Shall mortal man be more just than God?
      Shall a man be more pure than his Maker?

 4:18Behold, he puts no trust in his servants.
      He charges his angels with error.

 4:19How much more, those who dwell in houses of clay,
      Whose foundation is in the dust,
      Who are crushed before the moth!

 4:20Between morning and evening they are destroyed.
      They perish forever without any regarding it.

 4:21Isn't their tent-cord plucked up within them?
      They die, and that without wisdom.'
