Book of Job Chapter 4 Summary

Eliphaz Calls Angels "Bad Flyers"

  • Breaking the silence, Eliphaz throws his two cents in. He says that Job must have done something wrong to merit this punishment. Innocents, he says, are never punished.
  • And hey, if God even gets annoyed at his angels, how can humans pass the test? Basically, humans have no chance.
  • Don't forget, folks—Job is still maintaining his innocence.
