1 Then Eliphaz the Thaemanite answered and said, 2 Is it not the Lord that teaches understanding and knowledge? 3 For what matters it to the Lord, if thou wert blameless in [thy] works? or is it profitable that thou shouldest perfect thy way? 4 Wilt thou maintain and plead thine own cause? and will he enter into judgment with thee? 5 Is not thy wickedness abundant, and thy sins innumerable? 6 And thou hast taken security of thy brethren for nothing, and hast taken away the clothing of the naked. 7 Neither hast thou given water to the thirsty to drink, but hast taken away the morsel of the hungry. 8 And thou hast accepted the persons of some; and thou hast established those [that were already settled] on the earth. 9 But thou hast sent widows away empty, and hast afflicted orphans. 10 Therefore snares have compassed thee, and disastrous war has troubled thee. 11 The light has proved darkness to thee, and water has covered thee on thy lying down. 12 Does not he that dwells in the high places observe? and has he not brought down the proud? 13 And thou hast said, What does the Mighty One know? does he judge in the dark? 14 A cloud is his hiding-place, and he shall not be seen; and he passes through the circle of heaven. 15 Wilt thou [not] mark the old way, which righteous men have trodden? 16 who were seized before their time: their foundations [are as] an overflowing stream. 17 Who say, What will the Lord do to us? or what will the Almighty bring upon us? 18 Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsel for the wicked is far from him. 19 The righteous have seen [it], and laughed, and the blameless one has derided [them]. 20 Verily their substance has been utterly destroyed, and the fire shall devour what is left of their [property]. 21 Be firm, I pray thee, if thou canst endure; then thy fruit shall prosper. 22 And receive a declaration from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart. 23 And if thou shalt turn and humble thyself before the Lord, thou hast [thus] removed unrighteousness far from thy habitation. 24 Thou shalt lay up for thyself [treasure] in a heap on the rock; and Sophir [shall be] as the rock of the torrent. 25 So the Almighty shall be thy helper from enemies, and he shall bring thee forth pure as silver that has been tried by fire. 26 Then shalt thou have boldness before the Lord, looking up cheerfully to heaven. 27 And he shall hear thee when thou prayest to him, and he shall grant thee [power] to pay thy vows. 28 And he shall establish to thee again a habitation of righteousness and there shall be light upon thy paths. 29 Because thou hast humbled thyself; and thou shalt say, [Man] has behaved proudly, but he shall save him that is of lowly eyes. 30 He shall deliver the innocent, and do thou save thyself by thy pure hands. ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ ᾿Ελιφὰζ ὁ Θαιμανίτης λέγει· 2 πότερον οὐχὶ ὁ Κύριός ἐστιν ὁ διδάσκων σύνεσιν καὶ ἐπιστήμην; 3 τί γὰρ μέλει τῷ Κυρίῳ, ἐὰν σὺ ἦσθα τοῖς ἔργοις ἄμεμπτος; ἢ ὠφέλεια, ὅτι ἁπλώσεις τὴν ὁδόν σου; 4 ἦ λόγον σου ποιούμενος ἐλέγξει σε, καὶ συνεισελεύσεταί σοι εἰς κρίσιν; 5 πότερον οὐχ ἡ κακία σού ἐστι πολλή, ἀναρίθμητοι δὲ σού εἰσιν αἱ ἁμαρτίαι; 6 ἠνεχύραζες δὲ τοὺς ἀδελφούς σου διακενῆς, ἀμφίασιν δὲ γυμνῶν ἀφείλου· 7 οὐδὲ ὕδωρ διψῶντας ἐπότισας, ἀλλὰ πεινώντων ἐστέρησας ψωμόν· 8 ἐθαύμασας δέ τινων πρόσωπον, ᾤκισας δὲ τοὺς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς. 9 χήρας δὲ ἐξαπέστειλας κενάς, ὀρφανοὺς δὲ ἐκάκωσας. 10 τοιγαροῦν ἐκύκλωσάν σε παγίδες, καὶ ἐσπούδασέ σε πόλεμος ἐξαίσιος. 11 τὸ φῶς σοι σκότος ἀπέβη, κοιμηθέντα δὲ ὕδωρ σε ἐκάλυψε. 12 μὴ οὐχὶ ὁ τὰ ὑψηλὰ ναίων ἐφορᾷ; τοὺς δὲ ὕβρει φερομένους ἐταπείνωσε; 13 καὶ εἶπας· τί ἔγνω ὁ ἰσχυρός; ἦ κατὰ τοῦ γνόφου κρινεῖ; 14 νεφέλη ἀποκρυφὴ αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐχ ὁραθήσεται καὶ γῦρον οὐρανοῦ διαπορεύεται. 15 μὴ τρίβον αἰώνιον φυλάξεις, ἣν ἐπάτησαν ἄνδρες δίκαιοι, 16 οἳ συνελήφθησαν ἄωροι; ποταμὸς ἐπιρρέων οἱ θεμέλιοι αὐτῶν, 17 οἱ λέγοντες· Κύριος τί ποιήσει ἡμῖν; ἢ τί ἐπάξεται ἡμῖν ὁ Παντοκράτωρ; 18 ὃς δὲ ἐνέπλησε τοὺς οἴκους αὐτῶν ἀγαθῶν, βουλὴ δὲ ἀσεβῶν πόρρω ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 19 ἰδόντες δίκαιοι ἐγέλασαν, ἄμεμπτος δὲ ἐμυκτήρισεν. 20 εἰ μὴ ἠφανίσθη ἡ ὑπόστασις αὐτῶν, καὶ τὸ κατάλειμμα αὐτῶν καταφάγεται πῦρ. 21 γενοῦ δὴ σκληρός, ἐὰν ὑπομείνῃς· εἶτα ὁ καρπός σου ἔσται ἐν ἀγαθοῖς. 22 ἔκλαβε δὲ ἐκ στόματος αὐτοῦ ἐξηγορίαν καὶ ἀνάλαβε τὰ ῥήματα αὐτοῦ ἐν καρδίᾳ σου. 23 ἐὰν δὲ ἐπιστραφῇς καὶ ταπεινώσῃς σεαυτὸν ἔναντι Κυρίου, πόρρω ἐποίησας ἀπὸ διαίτης σου ἄδικον. 24 θήσῃ ἐπὶ χώματι ἐν πέτρᾳ καὶ ὡς πέτρα χειμάρρου Σωφίρ. 25 ἔσται οὖν σου ὁ Παντοκράτωρ βοηθὸς ἀπὸ ἐχθρῶν, καθαρὸν δὲ ἀποδώσει σε ὥσπερ ἀργύριον πεπυρωμένον. 26 εἶτα παρρησιασθήσῃ ἐναντίον Κυρίου ἀναβλέψας εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν ἱλαρῶς· 27 εὐξαμένου δέ σου πρὸς αὐτὸν εἰσακούσεταί σου, δώσει δέ σοι ἀποδοῦναι τὰς εὐχάς· 28 ἀποκαταστήσει δέ σοι δίαιταν δικαιοσύνης, ἐπὶ δὲ ὁδοῖς σου ἔσται φέγγος. 29 ὅτι ἐταπείνωσας σεαυτόν, καὶ ἐρεῖς· ὑπερηφανεύσατο, καὶ κύφοντα ὀφθαλμοῖς σώσει. 30 ρύσεται ἀθῷον, καὶ διασώθητι ἐν καθαραῖς χερσί σου.
