KJV JOB15 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB14.htm JOB16.htm
15:1 Then answered [H6030] Eliphaz [H464] the Temanite [H8489] , and said [H559] ,
15:2 Should a wise man [H2450] utter [H6030] vain [H7307] knowledge [H1847] , and fill [H4390] his belly [H990] with the east wind [H6921] ?(vain: Heb. knowledge of wind)
15:3 Should he reason [H3198] with unprofitable [H5532] talk [H1697] ? or with speeches [H4405] wherewith he can do no good [H3276] ?
15:4 Yea, thou castest off [H6565] fear [H3374] , and restrainest [H1639] prayer [H7881] before [H6440] God [H410] .(castest: Heb. makest void)(prayer: or, speech)
15:5 For thy mouth [H6310] uttereth [H502] thine iniquity [H5771] , and thou choosest [H977] the tongue [H3956] of the crafty [H6175] .(uttereth: Heb. teacheth)
15:6 Thine own mouth [H6310] condemneth [H7561] thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips [H8193] testify [H6030] against thee.
15:7 [Art] thou the first [H7223] [H7223] man [H120] [that] was born [H3205] ? or wast thou made [H2342] before [H6440] the hills [H1389] ?
15:8 Hast thou heard [H8085] the secret [H5475] of God [H433] ? and dost thou restrain [H1639] wisdom [H2451] to thyself?
15:9 What knowest [H3045] thou, that we know [H3045] not? [what] understandest [H995] thou, which [is] not in us?
15:10 With us [are] both the grayheaded [H7867] and very aged [H3453] men, much [H3524] elder [H3117] than thy father [H1] .
15:11 [Are] the consolations [H8575] of God [H410] small [H4592] with thee? is there any secret [H328] thing [H1697] with thee?
15:12 Why doth thine heart [H3820] carry thee away [H3947] ? and what do thy eyes [H5869] wink at [H7335] ,
15:13 That thou turnest [H7725] thy spirit [H7307] against God [H410] , and lettest [such] words [H4405] go out [H3318] of thy mouth [H6310] ?
15:14 What [is] man [H582] , that he should be clean [H2135] ? and [he which is] born [H3205] of a woman [H802] , that he should be righteous [H6663] ?
15:15 Behold, he putteth no trust [H539] in his saints [H6918] ; yea, the heavens [H8064] are not clean [H2141] in his sight [H5869] .
15:16 How much more abominable [H8581] and filthy [H444] [is] man [H376] , which drinketh [H8354] iniquity [H5766] [H5766] like water [H4325] ?
15:17 I will shew [H2331] thee, hear [H8085] me; and that [which] I have seen [H2372] I will declare [H5608] ;
15:18 Which wise [H2450] men have told [H5046] from their fathers [H1] , and have not hid [H3582] [it]:
15:19 Unto whom alone the earth [H776] was given [H5414] , and no stranger [H2114] passed [H5674] among [H8432] them.
15:20 The wicked [H7563] man travaileth [H2342] with pain all [his] days [H3117] , and the number [H4557] of years [H8141] is hidden [H6845] to the oppressor [H6184] .
15:21 A dreadful [H6343] sound [H6963] [is] in his ears [H241] : in prosperity [H7965] the destroyer [H7703] shall come [H935] upon him.(A dreadful: Heb. A sound of fears)
15:22 He believeth [H539] not that he shall return [H7725] out of darkness [H2822] , and he is waited [H6822] for of the sword [H2719] .
15:23 He wandereth abroad [H5074] for bread [H3899] , [saying], Where [is it]? he knoweth [H3045] that the day [H3117] of darkness [H2822] is ready [H3559] at his hand [H3027] .
15:24 Trouble [H6862] and anguish [H4691] shall make him afraid [H1204] ; they shall prevail [H8630] against him, as a king [H4428] ready [H6264] to the battle [H3593] .
15:25 For he stretcheth out [H5186] his hand [H3027] against God [H410] , and strengtheneth [H1396] himself against the Almighty [H7706] .
15:26 He runneth [H7323] upon him, [even] on [his] neck [H6677] , upon the thick [H5672] bosses [H1354] of his bucklers [H4043] :
15:27 Because he covereth [H3680] his face [H6440] with his fatness [H2459] , and maketh [H6213] collops of fat [H6371] on [his] flanks [H3689] .
15:28 And he dwelleth [H7931] in desolate [H3582] cities [H5892] , [and] in houses [H1004] which no man inhabiteth [H3427] , which are ready [H6257] to become heaps [H1530] .
15:29 He shall not be rich [H6238] , neither shall his substance [H2428] continue [H6965] , neither shall he prolong [H5186] the perfection [H4512] thereof upon the earth [H776] .
15:30 He shall not depart [H5493] out of darkness [H2822] ; the flame [H7957] shall dry up [H3001] his branches [H3127] , and by the breath [H7307] of his mouth [H6310] shall he go away [H5493] .
15:31 Let not him that is deceived [H8582] trust [H539] in vanity [H7723] : for vanity [H7723] shall be his recompence [H8545] .
15:32 It shall be accomplished [H4390] before [H3808] his time [H3117] , and his branch [H3712] shall not be green [H7488] .(accomplished: or, cut off)
15:33 He shall shake off [H2554] his unripe grape [H1154] as the vine [H1612] , and shall cast off [H7993] his flower [H5328] as the olive [H2132] .
15:34 For the congregation [H5712] of hypocrites [H2611] [shall be] desolate [H1565] , and fire [H784] shall consume [H398] the tabernacles [H168] of bribery [H7810] .
15:35 They conceive [H2029] mischief [H5999] , and bring forth [H3205] vanity [H205] , and their belly [H990] prepareth [H3559] deceit [H4820] .(vanity: or, iniquity)
