Job 15

YLT 1 And Eliphaz the Temanite answereth and saith: -- NIV 1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied: YLT 2 Doth a wise man answer [with] vain knowledge? And fill [with] an east wind his belly? NIV 2 "Would a wise man answer with empty notions or fill his belly with the hot east wind? YLT 3 To reason with a word not useful? And speeches -- no profit in them? NIV 3 Would he argue with useless words, with speeches that have no value? YLT 4 Yea, thou dost make reverence void, And dost diminish meditation before God. NIV 4 But you even undermine piety and hinder devotion to God. YLT 5 For thy mouth teacheth thine iniquity, And thou chooseth the tongue of the subtile. NIV 5 Your sin prompts your mouth; you adopt the tongue of the crafty. YLT 6 Thy mouth declareth thee wicked, and not I, And thy lips testify against thee. NIV 6 Your own mouth condemns you, not mine; your own lips testify against you. YLT 7 The first man art thou born? And before the heights wast thou formed? NIV 7 "Are you the first man ever born? Were you brought forth before the hills? YLT 8 Of the secret counsel of God dost thou hear? And withdrawest thou unto thee wisdom? NIV 8 Do you listen in on God's council? Do you limit wisdom to yourself ? YLT 9 What hast thou known, and we know not? Understandest thou -- and it is not with us? NIV 9 What do you know that we do not know? What insights do you have that we do not have? YLT 10 Both the gray-headed And the very aged [are] among us -- Greater than thy father [in] days. NIV 10 The gray-haired and the aged are on our side, men even older than your father. YLT 11 Too few for thee are the comforts of God? And a gentle word [is] with thee, NIV 11 Are God's consolations not enough for you, words spoken gently to you? YLT 12 What -- doth thine heart take thee away? And what -- are thine eyes high? NIV 12 Why has your heart carried you away, and why do your eyes flash, YLT 13 For thou turnest against God thy spirit? And hast brought out words from thy mouth: NIV 13 so that you vent your rage against God and pour out such words from your mouth? YLT 14 What [is] man that he is pure, And that he is righteous, one born of woman? NIV 14 "What is man, that he could be pure, or one born of woman, that he could be righteous? YLT 15 Lo, in His holy ones He putteth no credence, And the heavens have not been pure in His eyes. NIV 15 If God places no trust in his holy ones, if even the heavens are not pure in his eyes, YLT 16 Also -- surely abominable and filthy Is man drinking as water perverseness. NIV 16 how much less man, who is vile and corrupt, who drinks up evil like water! YLT 17 I shew thee -- hearken to me -- And this I have seen and declare: NIV 17 "Listen to me and I will explain to you; let me tell you what I have seen, YLT 18 Which the wise declare -- And have not hid -- from their fathers. NIV 18 what wise men have declared, hiding nothing received from their fathers YLT 19 To them alone was the land given, And a stranger passed not over into their midst: NIV 19 (to whom alone the land was given when no alien passed among them): YLT 20 `All days of the wicked he is paining himself, And few years have been laid up for the terrible one. NIV 20 All his days the wicked man suffers torment, the ruthless through all the years stored up for him. YLT 21 A fearful voice [is] in his ears, In peace doth a destroyer come to him. NIV 21 Terrifying sounds fill his ears; when all seems well, marauders attack him. YLT 22 He believeth not to return from darkness, And watched [is] he for the sword. NIV 22 He despairs of escaping the darkness; he is marked for the sword. YLT 23 He is wandering for bread -- `Where [is] it?' He hath known that ready at his hand Is a day of darkness. NIV 23 He wanders about--food for vultures; he knows the day of darkness is at hand. YLT 24 Terrify him do adversity and distress, They prevail over him As a king ready for a boaster. NIV 24 Distress and anguish fill him with terror; they overwhelm him, like a king poised to attack, YLT 25 For he stretched out against God his hand, And against the Mighty he maketh himself mighty. NIV 25 because he shakes his fist at God and vaunts himself against the Almighty, YLT 26 He runneth unto Him with a neck, With thick bosses of his shields. NIV 26 defiantly charging against him with a thick, strong shield. YLT 27 For he hath covered his face with his fat, And maketh vigour over [his] confidence. NIV 27 "Though his face is covered with fat and his waist bulges with flesh, YLT 28 And he inhabiteth cities cut off, houses not dwelt in, That have been ready to become heaps. NIV 28 he will inhabit ruined towns and houses where no one lives, houses crumbling to rubble. YLT 29 He is not rich, nor doth his wealth rise, Nor doth he stretch out on earth their continuance. NIV 29 He will no longer be rich and his wealth will not endure, nor will his possessions spread over the land. YLT 30 He turneth not aside from darkness, His tender branch doth a flame dry up, And he turneth aside at the breath of His mouth! NIV 30 He will not escape the darkness; a flame will wither his shoots, and the breath of God's mouth will carry him away. YLT 31 Let him not put credence in vanity, He hath been deceived, For vanity is his recompence. NIV 31 Let him not deceive himself by trusting what is worthless, for he will get nothing in return. YLT 32 Not in his day is it completed, And his bending branch is not green. NIV 32 Before his time he will be paid in full, and his branches will not flourish. YLT 33 He shaketh off as a vine his unripe fruit, And casteth off as an olive his blossom. NIV 33 He will be like a vine stripped of its unripe grapes, like an olive tree shedding its blossoms. YLT 34 For the company of the profane [is] gloomy, And fire hath consumed tents of bribery. NIV 34 For the company of the godless will be barren, and fire will consume the tents of those who love bribes. YLT 35 To conceive misery, and to bear iniquity, Even their heart doth prepare deceit. NIV 35 They conceive trouble and give birth to evil; their womb fashions deceit."
