22 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered:
Can even a wise person do him good?
Does he gain anything if you are innocent?
Does he bring you into court for this?
and your sins have no end.
you took clothes from people and left them naked.
and you kept food from the hungry.
you were honored and lived in the land.
and you mistreated orphans.
and sudden danger frightens you.
and a flood of water covers you.
See how high the highest stars are!
Can he judge us through the dark clouds?
as he walks around high up in the sky.’
where evil people walk?
and their foundations were washed away by a flood.
The Almighty can do nothing to us.’
Their way of thinking is different from mine.
the innocent can laugh at them and say,
and fire burns up their wealth.’
this is the way to happiness.
and keep his words in your heart.
So remove evil from your house.
and your fine gold among the rocks in the ravines.
and the best silver for you.
and you will look up to him.
and you will keep your promises to him.
and light will shine on your ways.
then the humble will be saved.
and be saved because your hands are clean.”
