Job 22

22:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
22:2 Can a man be profitable to God, as he that is wise may be
 profitable to himself?
22:3 [Is it] any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art
 righteous? or [is it] gain [to him], that thou makest thy ways
22:4 Will he reprove thee for fear of thee? will he enter with
 thee into judgment?
22:5 [Is] not thy wickedness great? and thy iniquities infinite?
22:6 For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for naught,
 and stripped the naked of their clothing.
22:7 Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink, and thou
 hast withheld bread from the hungry.
22:8 But [as for] the mighty man, he had the earth; and the
 honorable man dwelt in it.
22:9 Thou hast sent widows away empty, and the arms of the
 fatherless have been broken.
22:10 Therefore snares [are] around thee, and sudden fear
 troubleth thee;
22:11 Or darkness, [that] thou canst not see; and abundance of
 waters cover thee.
22:12 [Is] not God in the hight of heaven? and behold the hight
 of the stars, how high they are!
22:13 And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through
 the dark cloud?
22:14 Thick clouds [are] a covering to him, that he seeth not;
 and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.
22:15 Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have
22:16 Who were cut down out of time, whose foundation was
 overflowed with a flood!
22:17 Who said to God, depart from us: and what can the Almighty
 do for them!
22:18 Yet he filled their houses with good [things]: but the
 counsel of the wicked is far from me.
22:19 The righteous see [it], and are glad: and the innocent
 deride them.
22:20 Whereas our substance is not cut down, but the remnant of
 them the fire consumeth.
22:21 Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: by this
 good shall come to thee.
22:22 Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up
 his words in thy heart.
22:23 If thou shalt return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built
 up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.
22:24 Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the [gold] of
 Ophir as the stones of the brooks.
22:25 Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defense and thou shalt have
 plenty of silver.
22:26 For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and
 shalt lift up thy face to God.
22:27 Thou shalt make thy prayer to him, and he shall hear thee,
 and thou shalt pay thy vows.
22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be
 established to thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
22:29 When [men] are cast down, then thou shalt say, [There is]
 exaltation; and he shall save the humble person.
22:30 He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is
 delivered by the pureness of thy hands.
