Text Commentary

1Then Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar perceived that the Lord had forgiven them their sin (though he had not deemed Elihu worthy). 2,3And Eliphaz was inspired and sang a hymn. And his other friends and the armies made response to him near the altar. 4His hymm was this: 1 Lit. ‘Thus Eliphaz spoke’.

Banished are our sins, and buried is our wickedness. 5 Elihu, Elihu, the only wicked one, will have no memorial among the living: His lamp is quenched, its light has failed: 2 Lit. ‘he (it) has put out its light’. 6 The brilliance of his torch will turn to judgement on himself; For he is the child of darkness and not of light, And the door-keepers of darkness will inherit his glory and his splendour. 7 His kingdom has passed away: his throne has crumbled into dust; And the honour of his dwelling-place 3 Lit. ‘tabernacle’. is in Hades. 8 He has loved the serpent's beauty and the dragon's scales: Its venom and its poison shall be his food. 4 Reading εἰς βοϱάν: PSV Slav. εἰς βοϱϱάν (‘to the north’). 9 Never has he sought the Lord's favour, 5 Lit. ‘He has not gained the Lord for himself’. nor has he feared him, And even those who are honoured by him he has provoked. 10 The Lord has forgotten him, and the saints 6 Or ‘holy ones’ (i.e. ‘angels’). have abandoned him; 11 And anger and passion shall be his dwelling-place. 3 Lit. ‘tabernacle’. 12 He has no pity in his heart, nor peace in his mouth: 7 Reading ἐν τῳ̂ στόματι αὐτου̂: P ἐν τ. σώματι αὐ. (‘in his body’); SV Slav. om. The poison of asps he has on his tongue. 13 Righteous is the Lord: true are his judgements. With him is no favouritism: he will judge us all alike. 14 Lo, the Lord is at hand: lo, the saints 6 Or ‘holy ones’ (i.e. ‘angels’). have been made ready, While crowns with panegyrics lead the way. 15 Let the saints 6 Or ‘holy ones’ (i.e. ‘angels’). rejoice, let them be joyful in heart, 16 For they have obtained the glory for which they hoped. 17 Done away is our sin, cleansed is our wickedness. But wicked Elihu has no memorial among the living.
