4 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:
Yet who can keep from speaking?
and you have astrengthened the weak hands.
and you have amade firm the feeble knees.
it touches you, and you are dismayed.
and the integrity of your ways your hope?
7 “Remember: dwho that was innocent ever perished?
Or where were the upright cut off?
8 As I have seen, those who eplow iniquity
and sow trouble reap the same.
9 By fthe breath of God they perish,
and by gthe blast of his anger they are consumed.
hthe teeth of the young lions are broken.
and the cubs of the lioness are scattered.
my ear received ithe whisper of it.
when kdeep sleep falls on men,
which made all my bones shake.
the hair of my flesh stood up.
but I could not discern its appearance.
lA form was before my eyes;
there was silence, then I heard ma voice:
Can a man be pure before his Maker?
18 Even in his servants ohe puts no trust,
and his angels he charges with error;
19 how much more those who dwell in houses of pclay,
whose foundation is in qthe dust,
20 Between smorning and evening they are beaten to pieces;
they perish forever twithout anyone regarding it.
udo they not die, and that without wisdom?’
To which of vthe holy ones will you turn?
and jealousy slays the simple.
3 wI have seen the fool taking root,
but suddenly I cursed his dwelling.
4 His children are xfar from safety;
they are crushed in ythe gate,
and there is no one to deliver them.
and he takes it even out of thorns,1
nor does trouble sprout from the ground,
7 but man is zborn to trouble
as the sparks fly upward.
and to God would I commit my cause,
cmarvelous things without number:
10 he gives drain on the earth
and sends waters on the fields;
11 he esets on high those who are lowly,
and those who mourn are lifted to safety.
12 He ffrustrates the devices of the crafty,
so that their hands achieve no success.
13 He gcatches the wise in their own craftiness,
and the schemes of the wily are brought to a quick end.
and hgrope at noonday as in the night.
15 But he isaves the needy from the sword of their mouth
and from the hand of the mighty.
and jinjustice shuts her mouth.
17 “Behold, kblessed is the one whom God reproves;
18 For he wounds, but he nbinds up;
he oshatters, but his hands heal.
19 He will pdeliver you from six troubles;
20 rIn famine he will redeem you from death,
and in war from the power of the sword.
21 You shall be shidden from the lash of the tongue,
and shall not fear destruction when it comes.
and shall not fear tthe beasts of the earth.
and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.
24 You shall know that your utent is at peace,
and you shall inspect your fold and miss nothing.
25 You shall know also that your voffspring shall be many,
and your descendants as wthe grass of the earth.
26 You shall come to your grave in xripe old age,
like a sheaf gathered up in its season.
27 Behold, this we have ysearched out; it is true.
Hear, and know it for your good.”5
Hebrew lacks of God
Or more than; twice in this verse
The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain
Aquila, Symmachus, Syriac, Vulgate; Hebrew could be read as and the snare pants
Hebrew for yourself
