Job 22 Text (WEB)
  1. Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered,
  2. "Can a man be profitable to God? Surely he who is wise is profitable to himself.
  3. Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that you are righteous? Or does it benefit him, that you make your ways perfect?
  4. Is it for your piety that he reproves you, that he enters with you into judgment?
  5. Isn't your wickedness great? Neither is there any end to your iniquities.
  6. For you have taken pledges from your brother for nothing, and stripped the naked of their clothing.
  7. You haven't given water to the weary to drink, and you have withheld bread from the hungry.
  8. But as for the mighty man, he had the earth. The honorable man, he lived in it.
  9. You have sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
  10. Therefore snares are around you. Sudden fear troubles you,
  11. or darkness, so that you can not see, and floods of waters cover you.
  12. "Isn't God in the heights of heaven? See the height of the stars, how high they are!
  13. You say, 'What does God know? Can he judge through the thick darkness?
  14. Thick clouds are a covering to him, so that he doesn't see. He walks on the vault of the sky.'
  15. Will you keep the old way, which wicked men have trodden,
  16. who were snatched away before their time, whose foundation was poured out as a stream,
  17. who said to God, 'Depart from us;' and, 'What can the Almighty do for us?'
  18. Yet he filled their houses with good things, but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
  19. The righteous see it, and are glad. The innocent ridicule them,
  20. saying, 'Surely those who rose up against us are cut off. The fire has consumed the remnant of them.'
  21. "Acquaint yourself with him, now, and be at peace. Thereby good shall come to you.
  22. Please receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart.
  23. If you return to the Almighty, you shall be built up, if you put away unrighteousness far from your tents.
  24. Lay your treasure in the dust, the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks.
  25. The Almighty will be your treasure, and precious silver to you.
  26. For then you will delight yourself in the Almighty, and shall lift up your face to God.
  27. You shall make your prayer to him, and he will hear you. You shall pay your vows.
  28. You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you. Light shall shine on your ways.
  29. When they cast down, you shall say, 'be lifted up.' He will save the humble person.
  30. He will even deliver him who is not innocent. Yes, he shall be delivered through the cleanness of your hands."
Job 22 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויען אליפז התמני ויאמר׃
  2. הלאל יסכן־גבר כי־יסכן עלימו משכיל׃
  3. החפץ לשדי כי תצדק ואם־בצע כי־תתם דרכיך׃
  4. המיראתך יכיחך יבוא עמך במשפט׃
  5. הלא רעתך רבה ואין־קץ לעונתיך׃
  6. כי־תחבל אחיך חנם ובגדי ערומים תפשיט׃
  7. לא־מים עיף תשקה ומרעב תמנע־לחם׃
  8. ואיש זרוע לו הארץ ונשוא פנים ישב בה׃
  9. אלמנות שלחת ריקם וזרעות יתמים ידכא׃
  10. על־כן סביבותיך פחים ויבהלך פחד פתאם׃
  11. או־חשך לא־תראה ושפעת־מים תכסך׃
  12. הלא־אלוה גבה שמים וראה ראש כוכבים כי־רמו׃
  13. ואמרת מה־ידע אל הבעד ערפל ישפוט׃
  14. עבים סתר־לו ולא יראה וחוג שמים יתהלך׃
  15. הארח עולם תשמר אשר דרכו מתי־און׃
  16. אשר־קמטו ולא־עת נהר יוצק יסודם׃
  17. האמרים לאל סור ממנו ומה־יפעל שדי למו׃
  18. והוא מלא בתיהם טוב ועצת רשעים רחקה מני׃
  19. יראו צדיקים וישמחו ונקי ילעג־למו׃
  20. אם־לא נכחד קימנו ויתרם אכלה אש׃
  21. הסכן־נא עמו ושלם בהם תבואתכ טובה׃
  22. קח־נא מפיו תורה ושים אמריו בלבבך׃
  23. אם־תשוב עד־שדי תבנה תרחיק עולה מאהלך׃
  24. ושית־על־עפר בצר ובצור נחלים אופיר׃
  25. והיה שדי בצריך וכסף תועפות לך׃
  26. כי־אז על־שדי תתענג ותשא אל־אלוה פניך׃
  27. תעתיר אליו וישמעך ונדריך תשלם׃
  28. ותגזר־אומר ויקם לך ועל־דרכיך נגה אור׃
  29. כי־השפילו ותאמר גוה ושח עינים יושע׃
  30. ימלט אי־נקי ונמלט בבר כפיך׃ ף
Job 22 Text (Greek)
  1. υπολαβων δε ελιφας ο θαιμανιτης
  2. ποτερον ουχι ο κυριος εστιν ο διδασκων συνεσιν και
  3. τι γαρ μελει τω κυριω εαν συ ησθα τοις εργοις αμεμπτος η ωφελεια οτι απλωσης την οδον
  4. η λογον σου ποιουμενος ελεγξει σε και συνεισελευσεται σοι εις
  5. ποτερον ουχ η κακια σου εστιν πολλη αναριθμητοι δε σου εισιν αι
  6. ηνεχυραζες δε τους αδελφους σου δια κενης αμφιασιν δε γυμνων
  7. ουδε υδωρ διψωντας εποτισας αλλα πεινωντων εστερησας
  8. εθαυμασας δε τινων προσωπον ωκισας δε τους επι της
  9. χηρας δε εξαπεστειλας κενας ορφανους δε
  10. τοιγαρουν εκυκλωσαν σε παγιδες και εσπουδασεν σε πολεμος
  11. το φως σοι σκοτος απεβη κοιμηθεντα δε υδωρ σε
  12. μη ουχι ο τα υψηλα ναιων εφορα τους δε υβρει φερομενους
  13. και ειπας τι εγνω ο ισχυρος η κατα του γνοφου
  14. νεφη αποκρυφη αυτου και ουχ οραθησεται και γυρον ουρανου
  15. μη τριβον αιωνιον φυλαξεις ην επατησαν ανδρες
  16. οι συνελημφθησαν αωροι ποταμος επιρρεων οι θεμελιοι
  17. οι λεγοντες κυριος τι ποιησει ημιν η τι επαξεται ημιν ο
  18. ος δε ενεπλησεν τους οικους αυτων αγαθων βουλη δε ασεβων πορρω απ'
  19. ιδοντες δικαιοι εγελασαν αμεμπτος δε
  20. ει μη ηφανισθη η υποστασις αυτων και το καταλειμμα αυτων καταφαγεται
  21. γενου δη σκληρος εαν υπομεινης ειτ' ο καρπος σου εσται εν
  22. εκλαβε δε εκ στοματος αυτου εξηγοριαν και αναλαβε τα ρηματα αυτου εν καρδια
  23. εαν δε επιστραφης και ταπεινωσης σεαυτον εναντι κυριου πορρω εποιησας απο διαιτης σου το
  24. θηση επι χωματι εν πετρα και ως πετρα χειμαρρους
  25. εσται ουν σου ο παντοκρατωρ βοηθος απο εχθρων καθαρον δε αποδωσει σε ωσπερ αργυριον
  26. ειτα παρρησιασθηση εναντι κυριου αναβλεψας εις τον ουρανον
  27. ευξαμενου δε σου προς αυτον εισακουσεται σου δωσει δε σοι αποδουναι τας
  28. αποκαταστησει δε σοι διαιταν δικαιοσυνης επι δε οδοις σου εσται
  29. οτι εταπεινωσεν αυτον και ερεις υπερηφανευσατο και κυφοντα οφθαλμοις
  30. ρυσεται αθωον και διασωθητι εν καθαραις χερσιν
Job 22 Text (Latin)
  1. Respondens autem Eliphaz Themanites, dixit :
  2. Numquid Deo potest comparari homo, etiam cum perfectæ fuerit scientiæ ?
  3. Qui prodest Deo, si justus fueris ? aut quid ei confers, si immaculata fuerit via tua ?
  4. Numquid timens arguet te, et veniet tecum in judicium ?
  5. Et non propter malitiam tuam plurimam, et infinitas iniquitates tuas ?
  6. Abstulisti enim pignus fratrum tuorum sine causa, et nudos spoliasti vestibus.
  7. Aquam lasso non dedisti, et esurienti subtraxisti panem.
  8. In fortitudine brachii tui possidebas terram, et potentissimus obtinebas eam.
  9. Viduas dimisisti vacuas, et lacertos pupillorum comminuisti.
  10. Propterea circumdatus es laqueis, et conturbat te formido subita.
  11. Et putabas te tenebras non visurum, et impetu aquarum inundantium non oppressum iri.
  12. An non cogitas quod Deus excelsior cælo sit, et super stellarum verticem sublimetur ?
  13. Et dicis : Quid enim novit Deus ? et quasi per caliginem judicat.
  14. Nubes latibulum ejus, nec nostra considerat, et circa cardines cæli perambulat.
  15. Numquid semitam sæculorum custodire cupis, quam calcaverunt viri iniqui,
  16. qui sublati sunt ante tempus suum, et fluvius subvertit fundamentum eorum ?
  17. qui dicebant Deo : Recede a nobis : et quasi nihil posset facere Omnipotens, æstimabant eum,
  18. cum ille implesset domos eorum bonis ? quorum sententia procul sit a me !
  19. Videbunt justi, et lætabuntur, et innocens subsannabit eos :
  20. nonne succisa est erectio eorum ? et reliquias eorum devoravit ignis ?
  21. Acquiesce igitur ei, et habeto pacem, et per hæc habebis fructus optimos.
  22. Suscipe ex ore illius legem, et pone sermones ejus in corde tuo.
  23. Si reversus fueris ad Omnipotentem, ædificaberis, et longe facies iniquitatem a tabernaculo tuo.
  24. Dabit pro terra silicem, et pro silice torrentes aureos.
  25. Eritque Omnipotens contra hostes tuos, et argentum coacervabitur tibi.
  26. Tunc super Omnipotentem deliciis afflues, et elevabis ad Deum faciem tuam.
  27. Rogabis eum, et exaudiet te, et vota tua reddes.
  28. Decernes rem, et veniet tibi, et in viis tuis splendebit lumen.
  29. Qui enim humiliatus fuerit, erit in gloria, et qui inclinaverit oculos, ipse salvabitur.
  30. Salvabitur innocens : salvabitur autem in munditia manuum suarum.
Job 22 Text (KJV)
  1. Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
  2. Can a man be profitable unto God, as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself?
  3. Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? or is it gain to him that thou makest thy ways perfect?
  4. Will he reprove thee for fear of thee? will he enter with thee into judgment?
  5. Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities infinite?
  6. For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped the naked of their clothing.
  7. Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink, and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.
  8. But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; and the honourable man dwelt in it.
  9. Thou has sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
  10. Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden fear troubleth thee;
  11. Or darkness, that thou canst not see; and abundance of waters cover thee.
  12. Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!
  13. And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud?
  14. Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.
  15. Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?
  16. Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood:
  17. Which said unto God, Depart from us: and what can the Almighty do for them?
  18. Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
  19. The righteous see it, and are glad: and the innocent laugh them to scorn.
  20. Whereas our substance is not cut down, but the remnant of them the fire consumeth.
  21. Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.
  22. Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart.
  23. If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.
  24. Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.
  25. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.
  26. For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.
  27. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.
  28. Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
  29. When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.
  30. He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands.
