15 Thena Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
and should he fill his stomach with the east wind?
or in words with which he cannot do good?
and you are lessening meditation ⌊before⌋d God.
and you choose the tongue of the crafty.
and your lips testify against you.
And were you brought forth ⌊before⌋e the hills?
And do you limit wisdom to yourself?
What do you understand that is not clear to us?
⌊those older than your father⌋.f
a word spoken gently with you?
And why do your eyes flash,
and you let such words go out of your mouth?
org that one born of a woman can be righteous?
and the heavens are not clean in his eyes.
a man drinking wickedness like water.
and what I have seen, I will tellj—
and they have not hidden that which is from their ancestors,
19 ⌊to whom alone⌋k the land was given,
and no stranger passed through their midst.
evenl through the number of years that are laid up for the tyrant.
in prosperity the destroyer will come against him.
22 ⌊He cannot trust that he will return⌋m from darkness,
and he himselfn is destined for the sword.
He knows that a day of darkness is ready ⌊at hand⌋.o
theyp overpower him like a king ready for the battle.
and he was arrogant to Shaddai;
26 he ⌊stubbornly⌋q runs against him
⌊with his thick-bossed shield⌋.r
and has gathered fat upon his loins,
28 ⌊he will dwell⌋s in desolate cities,
in houses that they should not inhabit,
which are destined for rubble.
and their possessions will not stretch across the earth.t
a flame will dry up his new shoot,
and by the wind of his mouth he shall be removed.
for worthlessness will be his recompense.
32 It will be paid in full ⌊before his time⌋,u
and his branch will not flourish.
and he will cast off his blossom like the olive tree;
and fire consumes the tents of those who accept bribes.
and their womb prepares deceit.”
