Bible: Job 4
Eliphaz Begins to Speak 1
4:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered: 2
will you be impatient? 5
But who can refrain from speaking 6 ?
4:4 Your words have supported 11 those
who stumbled, 12
and you have strengthened the knees
that gave way. 13
4:5 But now the same thing 14 comes to you,
and you are discouraged; 15
it strikes you,
and you are terrified. 16
and your blameless ways your hope? 19
4:7 Call to mind now: 20
and those who sow trouble reap the same. 28
and by the blast 31 of his anger they are consumed.
and the growling 34 of the young lion,
but the teeth of the young lions are broken. 35
and the cubs of the lioness 38 are scattered.

4:16 It stands still, 51
but I cannot recognize 52 its appearance;
an image is before my eyes,
and I hear a murmuring voice: 53
4:19 how much more to those who live in houses of clay, 66
whose foundation is in the dust,
