Job 15

15:1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,
15:2 Should a wise men utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly
 with the east wind?
15:3 Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches
 with which he can do no good?
15:4 Yes, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before
15:5 For thy mouth uttereth thy iniquity, and thou choosest the
 tongue of the crafty.
15:6 Thy own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yes, thy own lips
 testify against thee.
15:7 [Art] thou the first man [that] was born? or wast thou made
 before the hills?
15:8 Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain
 wisdom to thyself?
15:9 What knowest thou that we know not? [what] understandest
 thou, which [is] not in us?
15:10 With us [are] both the gray headed and very aged men, much
 older than thy father.
15:11 [Are] the consolations of God small with thee? is there
 any secret thing with thee?
15:12 Why doth thy heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes
 wink at,
15:13 That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest
 [such] words go out of thy mouth?
15:14 What [is] man, that he should be clean? and [he who is]
 born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
15:15 Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yes, the
 heavens are not clean in his sight.
15:16 How much more abominable and filthy [is] man, who drinketh
 iniquity like water?
15:17 I will show thee, hear me; and that [which] I have seen, I
 will declare;
15:18 Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not
 hid [it]:
15:19 To whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed
 among them.
15:20 The wicked man travaileth with pain all [his] days, and
 the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.
15:21 A dreadful sound [is] in his ears: in prosperity the
 destroyer shall come upon him.
15:22 He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and
 he is waited for by the sword.
15:23 He wandereth abroad for bread, [saying], Where [is it]? he
 knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.
15:24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall
 prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.
15:25 For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and
 strengtheneth himself against the Almighty.
15:26 He runneth upon him, [even] on [his] neck, upon the thick
 bosses of his bucklers:
15:27 Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh
 collops of fat on [his] flanks.
15:28 And he dwelleth in desolate cities, [and] in houses which
 no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps.
15:29 He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance
 continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection of it upon
 the earth.
15:30 He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry
 up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go
15:31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity
 shall be his recompense.
15:32 It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch
 shall not be green.
15:33 He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall
 cast off his flower as the olive.
15:34 For the congregation of hypocrites [shall be] desolate,
 and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.
15:35 They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their
 belly prepareth deceit.
