1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered,

1 וַ֭יַּעַן אֱלִיפַ֥ז הַֽתֵּמָנִ֗י וַיֹּאמַֽר׃

2 "Can a man be profitable to God? Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.

2 הַלְאֵ֥ל יִסְכָּן־גָּ֑בֶר כִּֽי־יִסְכֹּ֖ן עָלֵ֣ימֹו מַשְׂכִּֽיל׃

3 Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that you are righteous? Or does it benefit him, that you make your ways perfect?

3 הַחֵ֣פֶץ לְ֭שַׁדַּי כִּ֣י תִצְדָּ֑ק וְאִם־בֶּ֝֗צַע כִּֽי־תַתֵּ֥ם דְּרָכֶֽיךָ׃

4 Is it for your piety that he reproves you, That he enters with you into judgment?

4 הֲֽ֭מִיִּרְאָ֣תְךָ יֹכִיחֶ֑ךָ יָבֹ֥וא עִ֝מְּךָ֗ בַּמִּשְׁפָּֽט׃

5 Isn't your wickedness great? Neither is there any end to your iniquities.

5 הֲלֹ֣א רָעָֽתְךָ֣ רַבָּ֑ה וְאֵֽין־קֵ֝֗ץ לַעֲוֹנֹתֶֽיךָ׃

6 For you have taken pledges from your brother for nothing, And stripped the naked of their clothing.

6 כִּֽי־תַחְבֹּ֣ל אַחֶ֣יךָ חִנָּ֑ם וּבִגְדֵ֖י עֲרוּמִּ֣ים תַּפְשִֽׁיט׃

7 You haven't given water to the weary to drink, And you have withheld bread from the hungry.

7 לֹא־מַ֭יִם עָיֵ֣ף תַּשְׁקֶ֑ה וּ֝מֵרָעֵ֗ב תִּֽמְנַֽע־לָֽחֶם׃

8 But as for the mighty man, he had the earth. The honorable man, he lived in it.

8 וְאִ֣ישׁ זְ֭רֹועַ לֹ֣ו הָאָ֑רֶץ וּנְשׂ֥וּא פָ֝נִ֗ים יֵ֣שֶׁב בָּֽהּ׃

9 You have sent widows away empty, And the arms of the fatherless have been broken.

9 אַ֭לְמָנֹות שִׁלַּ֣חְתָּ רֵיקָ֑ם וּזְרֹעֹ֖ות יְתֹמִ֣ים יְדֻכָּֽא׃

10 Therefore snares are round about you. Sudden fear troubles you,

10 עַל־כֵּ֭ן סְבִיבֹותֶ֣יךָ פַחִ֑ים וִֽ֝יבַהֶלְךָ פַּ֣חַד פִּתְאֹֽם׃

11 Or darkness, so that you can not see, And floods of waters cover you.

11 אֹו־חֹ֥שֶׁךְ לֹֽא־תִרְאֶ֑ה וְֽשִׁפְעַת־מַ֥יִם תְּכַסֶּֽךָּ׃

12 "Isn't God in the heights of heaven? See the height of the stars, how high they are!

12 הֲ‍ֽלֹא־אֱ֭לֹוהַּ גֹּ֣בַהּ שָׁמָ֑יִם וּרְאֵ֤ה רֹ֖אשׁ3 כֹּוכָבִ֣ים כִּי־רָֽמּוּ׃

13 You say, 'What does God know? Can he judge through the thick darkness?

13 וְֽ֭אָמַרְתָּ מַה־יָּ֣דַֽע אֵ֑ל הַבְעַ֖ד עֲרָפֶ֣ל יִשְׁפֹּֽוט׃

14 Thick clouds are a covering to him, so that he doesn't see. He walks on the vault of the sky.'

14 עָבִ֣ים סֵֽתֶר־לֹ֖ו וְלֹ֣א יִרְאֶ֑ה וְח֥וּג מַ֗יִם יִתְהַלָּֽךְ׃

15 Will you keep the old way Which wicked men have trodden,

15 הַאֹ֣רַח עֹולָ֣ם תִּשְׁמֹ֑ר אֲשֶׁ֖ר דָּרְכ֣וּ מְתֵי־אָֽוֶן׃

16 Who were snatched away before their time, Whose foundation was poured out as a stream,

16 אֲשֶֽׁר־קֻמְּט֥וּ וְלֹא־עֵ֑ת נָ֝הָ֗ר יוּצַ֥ק יְסֹודָֽם׃

17 Who said to God, 'Depart from us;' And, 'What can the Almighty do for us?'

17 הָאֹמְרִ֣ים לָ֭אֵל ס֣וּר מִמֶּ֑נּוּ וּמַה־יִּפְעַ֖ל שַׁדַּ֣י לָֽמֹו׃

18 Yet he filled their houses with good things, But the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

18 וְה֤וּא מִלֵּ֣א בָתֵּיהֶ֣ם טֹ֑וב וַעֲצַ֥ת רְ֝שָׁעִ֗ים רָ֣חֲקָה מֶֽנִּי׃

19 The righteous see it, and are glad; The innocent ridicule them,

19 יִרְא֣וּ צַדִּיקִ֣ים וְיִשְׂמָ֑חוּ וְ֝נָקִ֗י יִלְעַג־לָֽמֹו׃

20 Saying, 'Surely those who rose up against us are cut off, The fire has consumed the remnant of them.'

20 אִם־לֹ֣א נִכְחַ֣ד קִימָ֑נוּ וְ֝יִתְרָ֗ם אָ֣כְלָה אֵֽשׁ׃

21 "Acquaint yourself with him, now, and be at peace. Thereby good shall come to you.

21 הַסְכֶּן־נָ֣א עִמֹּ֑ו וּשְׁלם1 בָּ֝הֶ֗ם תְּֽבֹואַתְךָ֥3 טֹובָֽה׃

22 Please receive instruction from his mouth, And lay up his words in your heart.

22 קַח־נָ֣א מִפִּ֣יו תֹּורָ֑ה וְשִׂ֥ים אֲ֝מָרָ֗יו בִּלְבָבֶֽךָ׃

23 If you return to the Almighty, you shall be built up, If you put away unrighteousness far from your tents.

23 אִם־תָּשׁ֣וּב עַדשַ֭־דַּי תִּבָּנֶ֑ה תַּרְחִ֥יק עַ֝וְלָ֗ה מֵאָהֳלֶֽךָ׃

24 Lay your treasure in the dust, The gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.

24 וְשִׁית־עַל־עָפָ֥ר בָּ֑צֶר וּבְצ֖וּר נְחָלִ֣ים אֹופִֽיר׃

25 The Almighty will be your treasure, Precious silver to you.

25 וְהָיָ֣ה שַׁדַּ֣י בְּצָרֶ֑יךָ וְכֶ֖סֶף תֹּועָפֹ֣ות לָֽךְ׃

26 For then shall you delight yourself in the Almighty, And shall lift up your face to God.

26 כִּי־אָ֭ז עַל־שַׁדַּ֣י תִּתְעַנָּ֑ג וְתִשָּׂ֖א אֶל־אֱלֹ֣והַּ פָּנֶֽיךָ׃

27 You shall make your prayer to him, and he will hear you. You shall pay your vows.

27 תַּעְתִּ֣יר אֵ֭לָיו וְיִשְׁמָעֶ֑ךָּ וּנְדָרֶ֥יךָ תְשַׁלֵּֽם׃

28 You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you. Light shall shine on your ways.

28 וְֽתִגְזַר־אֹ֖ומֶר וְיָ֣קָם לָ֑ךְ וְעַל־דְּ֝רָכֶ֗יךָ נָ֣גַֽהּ אֹֽור׃

29 When they cast down, you shall say, 'be lifted up.' He will save the humble person.

29 כִּֽי־הִ֭שְׁפִּילוּ וַתֹּ֣אמֶר גֵּוָ֑ה וְשַׁ֖ח עֵינַ֣יִם יֹושִֽׁעַ׃

30 He will even deliver him who is not innocent; Yes, he shall be delivered through the cleanness of your hands."

30 יְֽמַלֵּ֥ט1 אִֽי־נָקִ֑י וְ֝נִמְלַ֗ט בְּבֹ֣ר כַּפֶּֽיךָ׃
