The King James Version Bible

Job 22:1-9

  1. Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,

  2. Can a man be profitable unto God, as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself?

  3. Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? or is it gain to him, that thou makest thy ways perfect?

  4. Will he reprove thee for fear of thee? will he enter with thee into judgment?

  5. Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities infinite?

  6. For thou hast taken a pledge from 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. But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; and the honourable man dwelt in it.

  9. Thou hast sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
