Job 15 (WEBP)

[1] Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered,
[2] “Should a wise man answer with vain knowledge, and fill himself with the east wind?
[3] Should he reason with unprofitable talk, or with speeches with which he can do no good?
[4] Yes, you do away with fear, and hinder devotion before God.
[5] For your iniquity teaches your mouth, and you choose the language of the crafty.
[6] Your own mouth condemns you, and not I. Yes, your own lips testify against you.
[7] “Are you the first man who was born? Or were you brought out before the hills?
[8] Have you heard the secret counsel of God? Do you limit wisdom to yourself?
[9] What do you know that we don’t know? What do you understand which is not in us?
[10] With us are both the gray-headed and the very aged men, much older than your father.
[11] Are the consolations of God too small for you, even the word that is gentle toward you?
[12] Why does your heart carry you away? Why do your eyes flash,
[13] that you turn your spirit against God, and let such words go out of your mouth?
[14] What is man, that he should be clean? What is he who is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
[15] Behold, he puts no trust in his holy ones. Yes, the heavens are not clean in his sight;
[16] how much less one who is abominable and corrupt, a man who drinks iniquity like water!
[17] “I will show you, listen to me; that which I have seen I will declare
[18] (which wise men have told by their fathers, and have not hidden it;
[19] to whom alone the land was given, and no stranger passed among them):
[20] the wicked man writhes in pain all his days, even the number of years that are laid up for the oppressor.
[21] A sound of terrors is in his ears. In prosperity the destroyer will come on him.
[22] He doesn’t believe that he will return out of darkness. He is waited for by the sword.
[23] He wanders abroad for bread, saying, ‘Where is it?’ He knows that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.
[24] Distress and anguish make him afraid. They prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.
[25] Because he has stretched out his hand against God, and behaves himself proudly against the Almighty,
[26] he runs at him with a stiff neck, with the thick shields of his bucklers,
[27] because he has covered his face with his fatness, and gathered fat on his thighs.
[28] He has lived in desolate cities, in houses which no one inhabited, which were ready to become heaps.
[29] He will not be rich, neither will his substance continue, neither will their possessions be extended on the earth.
[30] He will not depart out of darkness. The flame will dry up his branches. He will go away by the breath of God’s mouth.
[31] Let him not trust in emptiness, deceiving himself, for emptiness will be his reward.
[32] It will be accomplished before his time. His branch will not be green.
[33] He will shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and will cast off his flower as the olive tree.
[34] For the company of the godless will be barren, and fire will consume the tents of bribery.
[35] They conceive mischief and produce iniquity. Their heart prepares deceit.”

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 15 (KJVS)

[1] Then answered H6030 (8799) Eliphaz H464 the Temanite H8489, and said H559 (8799),
[2] Should a wise man H2450 utter H6030 (8799) vain H7307 knowledge H1847, and fill H4390 (8762) his belly H990 with the east wind H6921?
[3] Should he reason H3198 (8687) with unprofitable H5532 (8799) talk H1697? or with speeches H4405 wherewith he can do no good H3276 (8686)?
[4] Yea, thou castest off H6565 (8686) fear H3374, and restrainest H1639 (8799) prayer H7881 before H6440 God H410.
[5] For thy mouth H6310 uttereth H502 (8762) thine iniquity H5771, and thou choosest H977 (8799) the tongue H3956 of the crafty H6175.
[6] Thine own mouth H6310 condemneth H7561 (8686) thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips H8193 testify H6030 (8799) against thee.
[7] [Art] thou the first H7223 (8675) H7223 man H120 [that] was born H3205 (8735)? or wast thou made H2342 (8797) before H6440 the hills H1389?
[8] Hast thou heard H8085 (8799) the secret H5475 of God H433? and dost thou restrain H1639 (8799) wisdom H2451 to thyself?
[9] What knowest H3045 (8804) thou, that we know H3045 (8799) not? [what] understandest H995 (8799) thou, which [is] not in us?
[10] With us [are] both the grayheaded H7867 (8802) and very aged H3453 men, much H3524 elder H3117 than thy father H1.
[11] [Are] the consolations H8575 of God H410 small H4592 with thee? is there any secret H328 thing H1697 with thee?
[12] Why doth thine heart H3820 carry thee away H3947 (8799)? and what do thy eyes H5869 wink at H7335 (8799),
[13] That thou turnest H7725 (8686) thy spirit H7307 against God H410, and lettest [such] words H4405 go out H3318 (8689) of thy mouth H6310?
[14] What [is] man H582, that he should be clean H2135 (8799)? and [he which is] born H3205 (8803) of a woman H802, that he should be righteous H6663 (8799)?
[15] Behold, he putteth no trust H539 (8686) in his saints H6918; yea, the heavens H8064 are not clean H2141 (8804) in his sight H5869.
[16] How much more abominable H8581 (8737) and filthy H444 (8737) [is] man H376, which drinketh H8354 (8802) iniquity H5766 (8675) H5766 like water H4325?
[17] I will shew H2331 (8762) thee, hear H8085 (8798) me; and that [which] I have seen H2372 (8804) I will declare H5608 (8762);
[18] Which wise H2450 men have told H5046 (8686) from their fathers H1, and have not hid H3582 (8765) [it]:
[19] Unto whom alone the earth H776 was given H5414 (8738), and no stranger H2114 (8801) passed H5674 (8804) among H8432 them.
[20] The wicked H7563 man travaileth H2342 (8711) with pain all [his] days H3117, and the number H4557 of years H8141 is hidden H6845 (8738) to the oppressor H6184.
[21] A dreadful H6343 sound H6963 [is] in his ears H241: in prosperity H7965 the destroyer H7703 (8802) shall come H935 (8799) upon him.
[22] He believeth H539 (8686) not that he shall return H7725 (8800) out of darkness H2822, and he is waited H6822 (8803) for of the sword H2719.
[23] He wandereth abroad H5074 (8802) for bread H3899, [saying], Where [is it]? he knoweth H3045 (8804) that the day H3117 of darkness H2822 is ready H3559 (8737) at his hand H3027.
[24] Trouble H6862 and anguish H4691 shall make him afraid H1204 (8762); they shall prevail H8630 (8799) against him, as a king H4428 ready H6264 to the battle H3593.
[25] For he stretcheth out H5186 (8804) his hand H3027 against God H410, and strengtheneth H1396 (8691) himself against the Almighty H7706.
[26] He runneth H7323 (8799) upon him, [even] on [his] neck H6677, upon the thick H5672 bosses H1354 of his bucklers H4043:
[27] Because he covereth H3680 (8765) his face H6440 with his fatness H2459, and maketh H6213 (8799) collops of fat H6371 on [his] flanks H3689.
[28] And he dwelleth H7931 (8799) in desolate H3582 (8737) cities H5892, [and] in houses H1004 which no man inhabiteth H3427 (8799), which are ready H6257 (8694) to become heaps H1530.
[29] He shall not be rich H6238 (8799), neither shall his substance H2428 continue H6965 (8799), neither shall he prolong H5186 (8799) the perfection H4512 thereof upon the earth H776.
[30] He shall not depart H5493 (8799) out of darkness H2822; the flame H7957 shall dry up H3001 (8762) his branches H3127, and by the breath H7307 of his mouth H6310 shall he go away H5493 (8799).
[31] Let not him that is deceived H8582 (8738) trust H539 (8686) in vanity H7723: for vanity H7723 shall be his recompence H8545.
[32] It shall be accomplished H4390 (8735) before H3808 his time H3117, and his branch H3712 shall not be green H7488.
[33] He shall shake off H2554 (8799) his unripe grape H1154 as the vine H1612, and shall cast off H7993 (8686) his flower H5328 as the olive H2132.
[34] For the congregation H5712 of hypocrites H2611 [shall be] desolate H1565, and fire H784 shall consume H398 (8804) the tabernacles H168 of bribery H7810.
[35] They conceive H2029 (8800) mischief H5999, and bring forth H3205 (8800) vanity H205, and their belly H990 prepareth H3559 (8686) deceit H4820.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 15 (YLT)

[1] And Eliphaz the Temanite answereth and saith:-
[2] Doth a wise man answer with vain knowledge? And fill with an east wind his belly?
[3] To reason with a word not useful? And speeches-no profit in them?
[4] Yea, thou dost make reverence void, And dost diminish meditation before God.
[5] For thy mouth teacheth thine iniquity, And thou chooseth the tongue of the subtile.
[6] Thy mouth declareth thee wicked, and not I, And thy lips testify against thee.
[7] The first man art thou born? And before the heights wast thou formed?
[8] Of the secret counsel of God dost thou hear? And withdrawest thou unto thee wisdom?
[9] What hast thou known, and we know not? Understandest thou-and it is not with us?
[10] Both the gray-headed And the very aged are among us- Greater than thy father in days.
[11] Too few for thee are the comforts of God? And a gentle word is with thee,
[12] What-doth thine heart take thee away? And what-are thine eyes high?
[13] For thou turnest against God thy spirit? And hast brought out words from thy mouth:
[14] What is man that he is pure, And that he is righteous, one born of woman?
[15] Lo, in His holy ones He putteth no credence, And the heavens have not been pure in His eyes.
[16] Also-surely abominable and filthy Is man drinking as water perverseness.
[17] I shew thee-hearken to me- And this I have seen and declare:
[18] Which the wise declare- And have not hid-from their fathers.
[19] To them alone was the land given, And a stranger passed not over into their midst:
[20] ‘All days of the wicked he is paining himself, And few years have been laid up for the terrible one.
[21] A fearful voice is in his ears, In peace doth a destroyer come to him.
[22] He believeth not to return from darkness, And watched is he for the sword.
[23] He is wandering for bread-‘Where is it?’ He hath known that ready at his hand Is a day of darkness.
[24] Terrify him do adversity and distress, They prevail over him As a king ready for a boaster.
[25] For he stretched out against God his hand, And against the Mighty he maketh himself mighty.
[26] He runneth unto Him with a neck, With thick bosses of his shields.
[27] For he hath covered his face with his fat, And maketh vigour over his confidence.
[28] And he inhabiteth cities cut off, houses not dwelt in, That have been ready to become heaps.
[29] He is not rich, nor doth his wealth rise, Nor doth he stretch out on earth their continuance.
[30] He turneth not aside from darkness, His tender branch doth a flame dry up, And he turneth aside at the breath of His mouth!
[31] Let him not put credence in vanity, He hath been deceived, For vanity is his recompence.
[32] Not in his day is it completed, And his bending branch is not green.
[33] He shaketh off as a vine his unripe fruit, And casteth off as an olive his blossom.
[34] For the company of the profane is gloomy, And fire hath consumed tents of bribery.
[35] To conceive misery, and to bear iniquity, Even their heart doth prepare deceit.
