The Tabernacles of Bribery - Job 15

Job 15:1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,  

Job 15:2 Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his  belly with the east wind? 

Job 15:3 Should he reason with  unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no  good? 

Job 15:4 Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest  prayer before God. 

Job 15:5 For thy mouth uttereth thine  iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty. 

Job 15:6  Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine  own lips testify against thee. 

Job 15:7 Art thou the first man  that was born? or wast thou made before the hills? 


Job 15:8  Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain  wisdom to thyself? 

Job 15:9 What knowest thou, that we  know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us?   
Job 15:10 With us are both the grayheaded and very aged  men, much elder than thy father. 

Job 15:11 Are the  consolations of God small with thee? is there any secret  thing with thee? 

Job 15:12 Why doth thine heart carry thee  away? and what do thy eyes wink at, 

Job 15:13 That thou  turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go  out of thy mouth? 

Job 15:14 What is man, that he should be  clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be  righteous? 

Job 15:15 Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints;  yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight. 

Job 15:16 How  much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh  iniquity like water? 

Job 15:17 I will shew thee, hear me; and  that which I have seen I will declare; 

Job 15:18 Which wise  men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it:  

Job 15:19 Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no  stranger passed among them. 

Job 15:20 The wicked man  travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years  is hidden to the oppressor. 

Job 15:21 A dreadful sound is in  his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.  

Job 15:22 He believeth not that he shall return out of  darkness, and he is waited for of the sword. 

Job 15:23 He  wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he  knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.  

Job 15:24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they  shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.  

Job 15:25 For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and  strengtheneth himself against the Almighty. 

Job 15:26 He  runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick  bosses of his bucklers: 

Job 15:27 Because he covereth his  face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his  flanks. 

Job 15:28 And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in  houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become  heaps. 

Job 15:29 He shall not be rich, neither shall his  substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection  thereof upon the earth. 

Job 15:30 He shall not depart out of  darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the  breath of his mouth shall he go away. 

Job 15:31 Let not him  that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his  recompence. 

Job 15:32 It shall be accomplished before his  time, and his branch shall not be green. 

Job 15:33 He shall  shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his  flower as the olive. 

Job 15:34 For the congregation of  hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the  tabernacles of bribery. 

Job 15:35 They conceive mischief, and  bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit. KJV
