Job 4:1-6, 12-21

Eliphaz Speaks: Job Has Sinned

4Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered:
2 ‘If one ventures a word with you, will you be offended?
   But who can keep from speaking?
3 See, you have instructed many;
   you have strengthened the weak hands.
4 Your words have supported those who were stumbling,
   and you have made firm the feeble knees.
5 But now it has come to you, and you are impatient;
   it touches you, and you are dismayed.
6 Is not your fear of God your confidence,
   and the integrity of your ways your hope?


12 ‘Now a word came stealing to me,
   my ear received the whisper of it.
13 Amid thoughts from visions of the night,
   when deep sleep falls on mortals,
14 dread came upon me, and trembling,
   which made all my bones shake.
15 A spirit glided past my face;
   the hair of my flesh bristled.
16 It stood still,
   but I could not discern its appearance.
A form was before my eyes;
   there was silence, then I heard a voice:
17 “Can mortals be righteous before* God?
   Can human beings be pure before* their Maker?
18 Even in his servants he puts no trust,
   and his angels he charges with error;
19 how much more those who live in houses of clay,
   whose foundation is in the dust,
   who are crushed like a moth.
20 Between morning and evening they are destroyed;
   they perish for ever without any regarding it.
21 Their tent-cord is plucked up within them,
   and they die devoid of wisdom.”
