4:1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,

4:2 If one assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be grieved? But who can withhold himself from speaking?

4:3 Behold, thou hast instructed many, And thou hast strengthened the weak hands.

4:4 Thy words have upholden him that was falling, And thou hast made firm the feeble knees.

4:5 But now it is come unto thee, and thou faintest; It toucheth thee, and thou art troubled.

4:6 Is not thy fear `of God' thy confidence, `And' the integrity of thy ways thy hope?

4:7 Remember, I pray thee, who `ever' perished, being innocent? Or where were the upright cut off?

4:8 According as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, And sow trouble, reap the same.

4:9 By the breath of God they perish, And by the blast of his anger are they consumed.

4:10 The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, And the teeth of the young lions, are broken.

4:11 The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, And the whelps of the lioness are scattered abroad.

4:12 Now a thing was secretly brought to me, And mine ear received a whisper thereof.

4:13 In thoughts from the visions of the night, When deep sleep falleth on men,

4:14 Fear came upon me, and trembling, Which made all my bones to shake.

4:15 Then a spirit passed before my face; The hair of my flesh stood up.

4:16 It stood still, but I could not discern the appearance thereof; A form was before mine eyes: `There was' silence, and I heard a voice, `saying',

4:17 Shall mortal man be more just than God? Shall a man be more pure than his Maker?

4:18 Behold, he putteth no trust in his servants; And his angels he chargeth with folly:

4:19 How much more them that dwell in houses of clay, Whose foundation is in the dust, Who are crushed before the moth!

4:20 Betwixt morning and evening they are destroyed: They perish for ever without any regarding it.

4:21 Is not their tent-cord plucked up within them? They die, and that without wisdom.
