22:1 Then Eliphaz [H464] the Temanite [H8489] answered [H6030] and said [H559] ,
22:2 Can a man [H1397] be profitable [H5532] unto God [H410] , as [H3588] he that is wise [H7919] may be profitable [H5532] unto himself?(as he: or, if he may be profitable, doth his good success depend thereon?)
22:3 [Is it] any pleasure [H2656] to the Almighty [H7706] , that thou art righteous [H6663] ? or [is it] gain [H1215] [to him], that thou makest thy ways [H1870] perfect [H8552] ?
22:4 Will he reprove [H3198] thee for fear [H3374] of thee? will he enter [H935] with thee into judgment [H4941] ?
22:5 [Is] not thy wickedness [H7451] great [H7227] ? and thine iniquities [H5771] infinite [H7093] ?
22:6 For thou hast taken a pledge [H2254] from thy brother [H251] for nought [H2600] , and stripped [H6584] the naked [H6174] of their clothing [H899] .(the naked: Heb. the clothes of the naked)
22:7 Thou hast not given water [H4325] to the weary [H5889] to drink [H8248] , and thou hast withholden [H4513] bread [H3899] from the hungry [H7457] .
22:8 But [as for] the mighty [H2220] man [H376] , he had the earth [H776] ; and the honourable man [H5375] [H6440] dwelt [H3427] in it.(mighty: Heb. man of arm)(honourable: Heb. eminent, or, accepted for countenance)

22:10 Therefore snares [H6341] [are] round about [H5439] thee, and sudden [H6597] fear [H6343] troubleth [H926] thee;
22:11 Or darkness [H2822] , [that] thou canst not see [H7200] ; and abundance [H8229] of waters [H4325] cover [H3680] thee.
22:12 [Is] not God [H433] in the height [H1363] of heaven [H8064] ? and behold [H7200] the height [H7218] of the stars [H3556] , how high [H7311] they are!(height of the stars: Heb. head of the stars)
22:13 And thou sayest [H559] , How doth God [H410] know [H3045] ? can he judge [H8199] through the dark cloud [H6205] ?(How: or, What)
22:14 Thick clouds [H5645] [are] a covering [H5643] to him, that he seeth [H7200] not; and he walketh [H1980] in the circuit [H2329] of heaven [H8064] .
22:15 Hast thou marked [H8104] the old [H5769] way [H734] which wicked [H205] men [H4962] have trodden [H1869] ?
22:16 Which were cut down [H7059] out of time [H6256] , whose foundation [H3247] was overflown [H3332] with a flood [H5104] :(whose: Heb. a flood was poured upon their foundation)
22:17 Which said [H559] unto God [H410] , Depart [H5493] from us: and what can the Almighty [H7706] do [H6466] for them?(for: or, to)
22:18 Yet he filled [H4390] their houses [H1004] with good [H2896] [things]: but the counsel [H6098] of the wicked [H7563] is far [H7368] from me.
22:19 The righteous [H6662] see [H7200] [it], and are glad [H8055] : and the innocent [H5355] laugh them to scorn [heb3932] .
22:20 Whereas [H518] our substance [H7009] is not cut down [H3582] , but the remnant [H3499] of them the fire [H784] consumeth [H398] .(substance: or, estate)(the remnant: or, their excellency)
22:21 Acquaint [H5532] now thyself with him, and be at peace [H7999] : thereby good [H2896] shall come [H935] unto thee.(him: that is, God)
22:22 Receive [H3947] , I pray thee, the law [H8451] from his mouth [H6310] , and lay up [H7760] his words [H561] in thine heart [H3824] .
22:23 If thou return [H7725] to the Almighty [H7706] , thou shalt be built up [H1129] , thou shalt put away [H7368] iniquity [H5766] far [H7368] from thy tabernacles [H168] .
22:24 Then shalt thou lay up [H7896] gold [H1220] as [H5921] dust [H6083] , and the [gold] of Ophir [H211] as the stones [H6697] of the brooks [H5158] .(as dust: or, on the dust)

22:26 For then shalt thou have thy delight [H6026] in the Almighty [H7706] , and shalt lift up [H5375] thy face [H6440] unto God [H433] .
22:27 Thou shalt make thy prayer [H6279] unto him, and he shall hear [H8085] thee, and thou shalt pay [H7999] thy vows [H5088] .
22:28 Thou shalt also decree [H1504] a thing [H562] , and it shall be established [H6965] unto thee: and the light [H216] shall shine [H5050] upon thy ways [H1870] .
22:29 When [men] are cast down [H8213] , then thou shalt say [H559] , [There is] lifting up [H1466] ; and he shall save [H3467] the humble [H7807] person [H5869] .(the humble: Heb. him that hath low eyes)
22:30 He shall deliver [H4422] the island [H336] of the innocent [H5355] : and it is delivered [heb4422] by the pureness [H1252] of thine hands [H3709] .(He shall: or, The innocent shall deliver the island)
