Eliphaz’s First Speech Job 4:1 to Job 5:27 contains Eliphaz’s first speech to Job in which he attempts to answer Job’s question of suffering (Job 3:20-26). He approaches Job’s suffering by saying that God always delivers the poor, but judges the foolish. In Job 4:8 we see that Eliphaz quickly picked up on sowing and reaping as a reason for Job’s suffering.
Job 4:8, “Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.”
Eliphaz declares that God always judges the foolish (Job 5:1-7) and delivers the humble (Job 5:8-27).
