Eliphaz: Job Does Not Fear God
33He will be like a vine stripped of its unripe grapes, like an olive tree that sheds its blossoms. 34For the company of the godless will be barren, and fire will consume the tents of bribery. 35They conceive trouble and give birth to evil; their womb is pregnant with deceit.”…

Treasury of Scripture

For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.

the congregation

Job 8:13
So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:

Job 20:1
Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,

Job 27:8
For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?

the tabernacles

Job 11:14
If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.

Job 12:6
The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly.

Job 22:5-9
Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities infinite? …









(34) Desolate.--This was Job's own word (Job 3:7), and as it is an uncommon word, there may be some intentional reference to his use of it.

Verse 34. - For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate; or, shall be sterile or barren like the vine and olive of the preceding verse. The entire company of the wicked shall suffer this punishment. And fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery. God's lightning shall fall from heaven, and burn up the tents (i.e. the habitations) of those who take bribes to pervert justice. It is suggested that Eliphaz intends to accuse Job of the two secret sins of hypocrisy and corruption.
