After Job is finished speaking, Eliphaz has his say. Eliphaz assumed that his words were as true as God’s. He began by saying that Job’s words were empty and useless. According to Eliphaz, the experience and wisdom of their ancestors were more valuable than Job’s individual thoughts. This time Eliphaz was more rude, more intense and more arrogant, but he said nothing new.
If I’d had been Job, I would have told “Old, Eliphaz,” that it was time for him to go and not come back!
