22 Thena Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
Yes, can the wise be of use to him?
orb a gain if you make your ways blameless?
or enter into judgment with you?
and there is no end to your iniquities?
and you have stripped off the clothes of the naked.
and you withheld food from the hungry.
8 And the land ⌊belongs to the man of power⌋,c
and ⌊the favored⌋d lives in it.
and the arms of orphans were crushed.
and panic suddenly terrifies you,
and a flood of water covers you.
Can he judge through deep gloom?
and he walks about on the dome of heaven.’
that the people of mischief have trod,
16 who were snatched away ⌊before their time⌋,g
whose foundation was washed away by a current?
and ‘What can Shaddai do to us?’
butj the schemes of the wicked are repugnant to me.
butk the innocent one mocks at them.
20 ⌊Surely⌋l our foe perishes,
and fire has consumed their remainder.m
and be at peace; ⌊in this way⌋,n good will come to you.
and place his words in your heart.
if you remove wickedness from your tent,
and the gold of Ophir in the rock of wadis,
25 theno Shaddai will be your gold ore
and ⌊your precious silver⌋.p
and ⌊you will expect that God will be good to you⌋.q
and you will pay your vows.
and light will shine on your ways.
29 When they are humiliated, ⌊you say⌋,r ‘It is pride,’
and he will escape because of the cleanness of your hands.”
