Job 15 - NIV


1 Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied:


“Would a wise person answer with empty notions
or fill their belly with the hot east wind?

3 Would they argue with useless words,
with speeches that have no value?

4 But you even undermine piety
and hinder devotion to God.

5 Your sin prompts your mouth;
you adopt the tongue of the crafty.

6 Your own mouth condemns you, not mine;
your own lips testify against you.


“Are you the first man ever born?
Were you brought forth before the hills?

8 Do you listen in on God’s council?
Do you have a monopoly on wisdom?

9 What do you know that we do not know?
What insights do you have that we do not have?
