[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: In Job 4, Eliphaz is the first to answer Job's complaint.
After Job made his opening statement, Eliphaz began a reply which extends into the next chapter (1).
He asked Job not to be upset with him and his friends if they spoke to him; but they felt compelled to speak. He pointed out to Job that Job had instructed and strengthened many; but now that trouble had come upon him he fainted and was troubled. And he said that Job trusted in his uprightness (2-6).
And he asked Job "who ever perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off?" By this question, he implied that Job could not be upright, because God had cut him off. He said that this was the lot of those who were iniquitous and wicked. He said that God consumes them. And he said that even lions perish, implying that Job, who was weaker, also could not stand (7-11).
Eliphaz then told Job about a vision he had. A spirit came to him and told him that a mortal man could not be more just than God nor be more pure than his maker. The spirit told him that God puts no trust in his servants and that he even charged his angels with folly. And, said the spirit, man is even less trustworthy; their excellency departs, and they die without wisdom (12-21).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.
