Job 22:1-30
  • 1Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:
  • 2"Can a man be profitable to God? Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.
  • 3Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if you are in the right, or is it gain to him if you make your ways blameless?
  • 4Is it for your fear of him that he reproves you and enters into judgment with you?
  • 5Is not your evil abundant? There is no end to your iniquities.
  • 6For you have exacted pledges of your brothers for nothing and stripped the naked of their clothing.
  • 7You have given no water to the weary to drink, and you have withheld bread from the hungry.
  • 8The man with power possessed the land, and the favored man lived in it.
  • 9You have sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless were crushed.
  • 10Therefore snares are all around you, and sudden terror overwhelms you,
  • 11or darkness, so that you cannot see, and a flood of water covers you.
  • 12"Is not God high in the heavens? See the highest stars, how lofty they are!
  • 13But you say, 'What does God know? Can he judge through the deep darkness?
  • 14Thick clouds veil him, so that he does not see, and he walks on the vault of heaven.'
  • 15Will you keep to the old way that wicked men have trod?
  • 16They were snatched away before their time; their foundation was washed away.
  • 17They said to God, 'Depart from us,' and 'What can the Almighty do to us?'
  • 18Yet he filled their houses with good things-- but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
  • 19The righteous see it and are glad; the innocent one mocks at them,
  • 20saying, 'Surely our adversaries are cut off, and what they left the fire has consumed.'
  • 21"Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you.
  • 22Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart.
  • 23If you return to the Almighty you will be built up; if you remove injustice far from your tents,
  • 24if you lay gold in the dust, and gold of Ophir among the stones of the torrent-bed,
  • 25then the Almighty will be your gold and your precious silver.
  • 26For then you will delight yourself in the Almighty and lift up your face to God.
  • 27You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you, and you will pay your vows.
  • 28You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.
  • 29For when they are humbled you say, 'It is because of pride'; but he saves the lowly.
  • 30He delivers even the one who is not innocent, who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands."
