Job 22

22:1 And Eliphaz the Temanite answereth and saith: -- 22:2 To God is a man profitable, Because a wise man to himself is profitable 22:3 Is it a delight to the Mighty One That thou art righteous is it gain, That thou makest perfect thy ways 22:4 Because of thy reverence Doth He reason [with] thee He entereth with thee into judgment:  22:5 Is not thy wickedness abundant And there is no end to thine iniquities. 22:6 For thou takest a pledge of thy brother for nought, And the garments of the naked Thou dost strip off. 22:7 Thou causest not the weary to drink water, And from the hungry thou withholdest bread. 22:8 As to the man of arm--he hath the earth, And the accepted of face--he dwelleth in it. 22:9 Widows thou hast sent away empty, And the arms of the fatherless are bruised. 22:10 Therefore round about thee [are] snares, And trouble thee doth fear suddenly. 22:11 Or darkness--thou dost not see, And abundance of waters doth cover thee. 22:12 Is not God high [in] heaven And see the summit of the stars, That they are high. 22:13 And thou hast said, `What--hath God known Through thickness doth He judge 22:14 Thick clouds [are] a secret place to Him, And He doth not see;' And the circle of the heavens He walketh habitually,  22:15 The path of the age dost thou observe, That men of iniquity have trodden 22:16 Who have been cut down unexpectedly, A flood is poured out on their foundation. 22:17 Those saying to God, `Turn aside from us,' And what doth the Mighty One to them 22:18 And he hath filled their houses [with] good: (And the counsel of the wicked Hath been far from me.) 22:19 See do the righteous and they rejoice, And the innocent mocketh at them, 22:20 `Surely our substance hath not been cut off, And their excellency hath fire consumed.'  22:21 Acquaint thyself, I pray thee, with Him, And be at peace, Thereby thine increase [is] good. 22:22 Receive, I pray thee, from His mouth a law, And set His sayings in thy heart. 22:23 If thou dost return unto the Mighty Thou art built up, Thou puttest iniquity far from thy tents. 22:24 So as to set on the dust a defence, And on a rock of the valleys a covering. 22:25 And the Mighty hath been thy defence, And silver [is] strength to thee. 22:26 For then on the Mighty thou delightest thyself, And dost lift up unto God thy face, 22:27 Thou dost make supplication unto Him, And He doth hear thee, And thy vows thou completest. 22:28 And thou decreest a saying, And it is established to thee, And on thy ways hath light shone. 22:29 For they have made low, And thou sayest, `Lift up.' And the bowed down of eyes he saveth. 22:30 He delivereth the not innocent, Yea, he hath been delivered By the cleanness of thy hands.
