Job Chapter 22

, ; . 1 {S} Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said:
--- - . 2 Can a man be profitable unto God? Or can he that is wise be profitable unto Him?
, ; -, - . 3 Is it any advantage to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? Or is it gain to Him, that thou makest thy ways blameless?
; , . 4 Is it for thy fear of Him that He reproveth thee, that He entereth with thee into judgment?
; -, ‍. 5 Is not thy wickedness great? And are not thine iniquities without end?
- ; . 6 For thou hast taken pledges of 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 And as a mighty man, who hath the earth, and as a man of rank, who dwelleth in it,
, ; . 9 Thou hast sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
-, ; , . 10 Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden dread affrighted 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 topmost of the stars, how high they are!
, - ; . 13 And thou sayest: 'What 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 Wilt thou 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 unto God: 'Depart from us'; and what could the Almighty do unto them?
; , . 18 Yet He filled their houses with good things--but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
; , -. 19 The righteous saw it, and were glad, and the innocent laugh them to scorn:
- ; , . 20 'Surely their substance is cut off, and their abundance the fire hath consumed.'
- ; , . 21 Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace; thereby shall thine increase be good.
- ; , . 22 Receive, I pray thee, instruction from His mouth, and lay up His words in thy heart.
- -, ; , . 23 If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up--if thou put away unrighteousness far from thy tents,
-- ; . 24 And lay thy treasure in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks;
; . 25 And the Almighty be thy treasure, and precious silver unto thee;
-, - ; - . 26 Then surely 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 will hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows;
-, ; -, . 28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee, and light shall shine upon thy ways.
-, ; . 29 When they cast thee down, thou shalt say: 'There is lifting up'; for the humble person He saveth.
-; , . 30 He delivereth him that is innocent, yea, thou shalt be delivered through the cleanness of thy hands.
