Eliphaz Laki had disappeared, and his son was left with hope—stubborn, secret, maddening hope.

"But I didn't know he would be having money," murmured Eliphaz.
First among the things Eliphaz has seen is the fate of those violent evil-doers who plough iniquity and sow disaster.

God his strength. (1.) One of Job's "three friends" who visited him in his affliction (4:1). He was a "Temanite", i.e., a native of Teman, in Idumea. He first enters into debate with Job. His language is uniformly more delicate and gentle than that of the other two, although he imputes to Job special sins as the cause of his present sufferings.

The son of Esau by his wife Adah, and father of several Edomitish tribes (Gen. 36:4, 10, 11, 16).
