Job 4

NLT 1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied to Job: NIV 1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied: NLT 2 “Will you be patient and let me say a word? For who could keep from speaking out? NIV 2 “If someone ventures a word with you, will you be impatient? But who can keep from speaking? NLT 3 “In the past you have encouraged many people; you have strengthened those who were weak. NIV 3 Think how you have instructed many, how you have strengthened feeble hands. NLT 4 Your words have supported those who were falling; you encouraged those with shaky knees. NIV 4 Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees. NLT 5 But now when trouble strikes, you lose heart. You are terrified when it touches you. NIV 5 But now trouble comes to you, and you are discouraged; it strikes you, and you are dismayed. NLT 6 Doesn’t your reverence for God give you confidence? Doesn’t your life of integrity give you hope? NIV 6 Should not your piety be your confidence and your blameless ways your hope? NLT 7 “Stop and think! Do the innocent die? When have the upright been destroyed? NIV 7 “Consider now: Who, being innocent, has ever perished? Where were the upright ever destroyed? NLT 8 My experience shows that those who plant trouble and cultivate evil will harvest the same. NIV 8 As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it. NLT 9 A breath from God destroys them. They vanish in a blast of his anger. NIV 9 At the breath of God they perish; at the blast of his anger they are no more. NLT 10 The lion roars and the wildcat snarls, but the teeth of strong lions will be broken. NIV 10 The lions may roar and growl, yet the teeth of the great lions are broken. NLT 11 The fierce lion will starve for lack of prey, and the cubs of the lioness will be scattered. NIV 11 The lion perishes for lack of prey, and the cubs of the lioness are scattered. NLT 12 “This truth was given to me in secret, as though whispered in my ear. NIV 12 “A word was secretly brought to me, my ears caught a whisper of it. NLT 13 It came to me in a disturbing vision at night, when people are in a deep sleep. NIV 13 Amid disquieting dreams in the night, when deep sleep falls on people, NLT 14 Fear gripped me, and my bones trembled. NIV 14 fear and trembling seized me and made all my bones shake. NLT 15 A spirit swept past my face, and my hair stood on end. NIV 15 A spirit glided past my face, and the hair on my body stood on end. NLT 16 The spirit stopped, but I couldn’t see its shape. There was a form before my eyes. In the silence I heard a voice say, NIV 16 It stopped, but I could not tell what it was. A form stood before my eyes, and I heard a hushed voice: NLT 17 ‘Can a mortal be innocent before God? Can anyone be pure before the Creator?’ NIV 17 ‘Can a mortal be more righteous than God? Can even a strong man be more pure than his Maker? NLT 18 “If God does not trust his own angels and has charged his messengers with foolishness, NIV 18 If God places no trust in his servants, if he charges his angels with error, NLT 19 how much less will he trust people made of clay! They are made of dust, crushed as easily as a moth. NIV 19 how much more those who live in houses of clay, whose foundations are in the dust, who are crushed more readily than a moth! NLT 20 They are alive in the morning but dead by evening, gone forever without a trace. NIV 20 Between dawn and dusk they are broken to pieces; unnoticed, they perish forever. NLT 21 Their tent-cords are pulled and the tent collapses, and they die in ignorance. NIV 21 Are not the cords of their tent pulled up, so that they die without wisdom?’
