Job 22

22:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered, and said, 22:2 Can a man be profitable vnto God as hee that is wise may be profitable vnto himselfe. 22:3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous or is it gaine to him, that thou makest thy waies perfite 22:4 Will hee reproue thee for feare of thee will he enter with thee into iudgment 22:5 Is not thy wickednesse great and thine iniquities infinite 22:6 For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped the naked of their clothing. 22:7 Thou hast not giuen water to the wearie to drinke, and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry. 22:8 But as for the mightie man, hee had the earth, and the honourable man dwelt in it. 22:9 Thou hast sent widowes away emptie, and the armes of the fatherlesse haue bene broken. 22:10 Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden feare troubleth thee, 22:11 Or darkenes that thou canst not see, and abundance of waters couer thee. 22:12 Is not God in the height of heauen and behold the height of the starres how high they are. 22:13 And thou sayest, How doth God know can he iudge through the darke cloude 22:14 Thicke cloudes are a couering to him that he seeth not, and hee walketh in the circuit of heauen. 22:15 Hast thou marked the olde way which wicked men haue troden 22:16 Which were cut downe out of time, whose foundation was ouerflowen with a flood. 22:17 Which said vnto God, Depart from vs, and what can the Almightie doe for them 22:18 Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsell of the wicked is farre from me. 22:19 The righteous see it, and are glad, and the innocent laugh them to scorne. 22:20 Whereas our substance is not cut downe, but the remnant of them the fire consumeth. 22:21 Acquaint now thy selfe with him, and be at peace: thereby good shal come vnto thee. 22:22 Receiue, I pray thee, the Lawe from his mouth, and lay vp his words in thine heart. 22:23 If thou returne to the Almightie, thou shalt be built vp, thou shalt put away iniquitie farre from thy tabernacles. 22:24 Then shalt thou lay vp golde as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brookes. 22:25 Yea the Almightie shall bee thy defence, and thou shalt haue plenty of siluer. 22:26 For then shalt thou haue thy delight in the Almightie, and shalt lift vp thy face vnto God. 22:27 Thou shalt make thy prayer vnto him, and he shall heare thee, and thou shalt pay thy vowes. 22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shal be established vnto thee: and the light shall shine vpon thy wayes. 22:29 When men are cast downe, then thou shalt say, There is lifting vp: and he shall saue the humble person. 22:30 He shall deliuer the Iland of the innocent: and it is deliuered by the purenesse of thine hands.
