Job 22 (WEBP)

[1] Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered,
[2] “Can a man be profitable to God? Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.
[3] Is it any pleasure to the Almighty that you are righteous? Or does it benefit him that you make your ways perfect?
[4] Is it for your piety that he reproves you, that he enters with you into judgment?
[5] Isn’t your wickedness great? Neither is there any end to your iniquities.
[6] For you have taken pledges from your brother for nothing, and stripped the naked of their clothing.
[7] You haven’t given water to the weary to drink, and you have withheld bread from the hungry.
[8] But as for the mighty man, he had the earth. The honorable man, he lived in it.
[9] You have sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
[10] Therefore snares are around you. Sudden fear troubles you,
[11] or darkness, so that you can not see, and floods of waters cover you.
[12] “Isn’t God in the heights of heaven? See the height of the stars, how high they are!
[13] You say, ‘What does God know? Can he judge through the thick darkness?
[14] Thick clouds are a covering to him, so that he doesn’t see. He walks on the vault of the sky.’
[15] Will you keep the old way, which wicked men have trodden,
[16] who were snatched away before their time, whose foundation was poured out as a stream,
[17] who said to God, ‘Depart from us!’ and, ‘What can the Almighty do for us?’
[18] Yet he filled their houses with good things, but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
[19] The righteous see it, and are glad. The innocent ridicule them,
[20] saying, ‘Surely those who rose up against us are cut off. The fire has consumed their remnant.’
[21] “Acquaint yourself with him now, and be at peace. By it, good will come to you.
[22] Please receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart.
[23] If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up, if you put away unrighteousness far from your tents.
[24] Lay your treasure in the dust, the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.
[25] The Almighty will be your treasure, and precious silver to you.
[26] For then you will delight yourself in the Almighty, and will lift up your face to God.
[27] You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you. You will pay your vows.
[28] You will also decree a thing, and it will be established to you. Light will shine on your ways.
[29] When they cast down, you will say, ‘be lifted up.’ He will save the humble person.
[30] He will even deliver him who is not innocent. Yes, he will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.”

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 22 (KJVS)

[1] Then Eliphaz H464 the Temanite H8489 answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799),
[2] Can a man H1397 be profitable H5532 (8799) unto God H410, as H3588 he that is wise H7919 (8688) may be profitable H5532 (8799) unto himself?
[3] [Is it] any pleasure H2656 to the Almighty H7706, that thou art righteous H6663 (8799)? or [is it] gain H1215 [to him], that thou makest thy ways H1870 perfect H8552 (8686)?
[4] Will he reprove H3198 (8686) thee for fear H3374 of thee? will he enter H935 (8799) with thee into judgment H4941?
[5] [Is] not thy wickedness H7451 great H7227? and thine iniquities H5771 infinite H7093?
[6] For thou hast taken a pledge H2254 (8799) from thy brother H251 for nought H2600, and stripped H6584 (8686) the naked H6174 of their clothing H899.
[7] Thou hast not given water H4325 to the weary H5889 to drink H8248 (8686), and thou hast withholden H4513 (8799) bread H3899 from the hungry H7457.
[8] But [as for] the mighty H2220 man H376, he had the earth H776; and the honourable man H5375 (8803) H6440 dwelt H3427 (8799) in it.
[9] Thou hast sent H7971 (8765) widows H490 away empty H7387, and the arms H2220 of the fatherless H3490 have been broken H1792 (8792).
[10] Therefore snares H6341 [are] round about H5439 thee, and sudden H6597 fear H6343 troubleth H926 (8762) thee;
[11] Or darkness H2822, [that] thou canst not see H7200 (8799); and abundance H8229 of waters H4325 cover H3680 (8762) thee.
[12] [Is] not God H433 in the height H1363 of heaven H8064? and behold H7200 (8798) the height H7218 of the stars H3556, how high H7311 (8804) they are!
[13] And thou sayest H559 (8804), How doth God H410 know H3045 (8804)? can he judge H8199 (8799) through the dark cloud H6205?
[14] Thick clouds H5645 [are] a covering H5643 to him, that he seeth H7200 (8799) not; and he walketh H1980 (8691) in the circuit H2329 of heaven H8064.
[15] Hast thou marked H8104 (8799) the old H5769 way H734 which wicked H205 men H4962 have trodden H1869 (8804)?
[16] Which were cut down H7059 (8795) out of time H6256, whose foundation H3247 was overflown H3332 (8714) with a flood H5104:
[17] Which said H559 (8802) unto God H410, Depart H5493 (8798) from us: and what can the Almighty H7706 do H6466 (8799) for them?
[18] Yet he filled H4390 (8765) their houses H1004 with good H2896 [things]: but the counsel H6098 of the wicked H7563 is far H7368 (8804) from me.
[19] The righteous H6662 see H7200 (8799) [it], and are glad H8055 (8799): and the innocent H5355 laugh them to scorn H3932 (8799).
[20] Whereas H518 our substance H7009 is not cut down H3582 (8738), but the remnant H3499 of them the fire H784 consumeth H398 (8804).
[21] Acquaint H5532 (8685) now thyself with him, and be at peace H7999 (8798): thereby good H2896 shall come H935 (8799) unto thee.
[22] Receive H3947 (8798), I pray thee, the law H8451 from his mouth H6310, and lay up H7760 (8798) his words H561 in thine heart H3824.
[23] If thou return H7725 (8799) to the Almighty H7706, thou shalt be built up H1129 (8735), thou shalt put away H7368 iniquity H5766 far H7368 (8686) from thy tabernacles H168.
[24] Then shalt thou lay up H7896 (8800) gold H1220 as H5921 dust H6083, and the [gold] of Ophir H211 as the stones H6697 of the brooks H5158.
[25] Yea, the Almighty H7706 shall be thy defence H1220, and thou shalt have plenty H8443 of silver H3701.
[26] For then shalt thou have thy delight H6026 (8691) in the Almighty H7706, and shalt lift up H5375 (8799) thy face H6440 unto God H433.
[27] Thou shalt make thy prayer H6279 (8686) unto him, and he shall hear H8085 (8799) thee, and thou shalt pay H7999 (8762) thy vows H5088.
[28] Thou shalt also decree H1504 (8799) a thing H562, and it shall be established H6965 (8799) unto thee: and the light H216 shall shine H5050 (8804) upon thy ways H1870.
[29] When [men] are cast down H8213 (8689), then thou shalt say H559 (8799), [There is] lifting up H1466; and he shall save H3467 (8686) the humble H7807 person H5869.
[30] He shall deliver H4422 (8762) the island H336 of the innocent H5355: and it is delivered H4422 (8738) by the pureness H1252 of thine hands H3709.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 22 (YLT)

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