Overcoming Hopeless Situation - Job 4


Job 4:1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,  

Job 4:2 If we assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be  grieved? but who can withhold himself from speaking?  

Job 4:3 Behold, thou hast instructed many, and thou hast  strengthened the weak hands. 

Job 4:4 Thy words have  upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened  the feeble knees. 

Job 4:5 But now it is come upon thee, and  thou faintest; it toucheth thee, and thou art troubled. 

Job 4:6  Is not this thy fear, thy confidence, thy hope, and the  uprightness of thy ways? 

Job 4:7 Remember, I pray thee, who  ever perished, being innocent? or where were the  righteous cut off? 

Job 4:8 Even as I have seen, they that plow  iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. 

Job 4:9 By the  blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are  they consumed. 

Job 4:10 The roaring of the lion, and the  voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are  broken. 

Job 4:11 The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and  the stout lion’s whelps are scattered abroad. 

Job 4:12 Now a  thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a  little thereof. 

Job 4:13 In thoughts from the visions of the  night, when deep sleep falleth on men, 

Job 4:14 Fear came  upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.  

Job 4:15 Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my  flesh stood up: 

Job 4:16 It stood still, but I could not discern  the form thereof: an image was before  mine eyes, there  was silence, and I heard a voice, saying, 

Job 4:17 Shall  mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more  pure than his maker? 

Job 4:18 Behold, he put no trust in his  servants; and his angels he charged with folly: 

Job 4:19 How  much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose  foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the  moth? 

Job 4:20 They are destroyed from morning to evening:  they perish for ever without any regarding it. 

Job 4:21 Doth  not their excellency which is in them go away? they die,  even without wisdom.  KJV
