Eliphaz Chimes In

"...Think! Has a truly innocent person ever ended up
on the scrap heap?" (Job 4:7 The Message)

Eliphaz blows a lot of wind, but this sentence seems
particularly cruel to me. He gets down and dirty with
his very first speech. No support, no empathy for his
friend. It seems that Satan continues to come at Job
through the relationships around him.

What about the comment above? Is Eliphaz implying
that a man's righteousness is a way to keep suffering
out his life? Does Eliphaz speak the truth?

This friend of Job's is just winding up, when all Job
wanted was some winding down.
