Job 15

15:1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said, 15:2 Should a wise man vtter vaine knowledge, and fill his belly with the East winde 15:3 Should hee reason with vnprofitable talke or with speeches wherewith he can doe no good 15:4 Yea thou castest off feare, and restrainest prayer before God. 15:5 For thy mouth vttereth thine iniquitie, and thou choosest the tongue of the craftie. 15:6 Thine owne mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea thine owne lippes testifie against thee. 15:7 Art thou the first man that was borne or wast thou made before the hilles 15:8 Hast thou heard the secret of God and doest thou restraine wisedome to thy selfe 15:9 What knowest thou that we know not what vnderstandest thou, which is not in vs 15:10 With vs are both the gray headed, and very aged men, much elder then thy father. 15:11 Are the consolations of God small with thee is there any secret thing with thee 15:12 Why doeth thine heart carie thee away and what doe thine eyes winke at, 15:13 That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words goe out of thy mouth 15:14 What is man, that he should be cleane and he which is borne of a woman, that he should be righteous 15:15 Beholde, he putteth no trust in his Saints, yea, the heauens are not cleane in his sight. 15:16 How much more abominable and filthie is man, which drinketh iniquitie like water 15:17 I will shew thee, heare me, and that which I haue seene, I wil declare, 15:18 Which wise men haue tolde from their fathers, and haue not hid it: 15:19 Unto whom alone the earth was giuen, and no stranger passed among them. 15:20 The wicked man trauaileth with paine all his dayes, and the number of yeeres is hidden to the oppressour. 15:21 A dreadfull sound is in his eares; in prosperitie the destroyer shall come vpon him. 15:22 He beleeueth not that he shall returne out of darkenesse, and he is waited for, of the sword. 15:23 He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it he knoweth that the day of darkenes is ready at his hand. 15:24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall preuaile against him, as a king ready to the battell. 15:25 For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himselfe against the Almightie. 15:26 He runneth vpon him, euen on his necke, vpon the thicke bosses of his bucklers: 15:27 Because he couereth his face with his fatnesse, and maketh collops of fat on his flankes. 15:28 And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heapes. 15:29 He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof vpon the earth. 15:30 He shall not depart out of darkenesse, the flame shall drie vp his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he goe away. 15:31 Let not him that is deceiued, trust in vanitie: for vanitie shalbe his recompence. 15:32 It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not bee greene. 15:33 He shal shake off his vnripe grape as the Uine, and shall cast off his flowre as the Oliue. 15:34 For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of briberie. 15:35 They conceiue mischiefe, and bring forth vanitie, and their belly prepareth deceit.
