New International Version
But you even undermine piety and hinder devotion to God.
King James Bible
Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God.
Darby Bible Translation
Yea, thou makest piety of none effect, and restrainest meditation before God.
World English Bible
Yes, you do away with fear, and hinder devotion before God.
Young's Literal Translation
Yea, thou dost make reverence void, And dost diminish meditation before God.
Job 15:4 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou castest off fear - Thou hast no reverence for God.
And restrainest prayer - Instead of humbling thyself, and making supplication to thy Judge, thou spendest thy time in arraigning his providence and justifying thyself. When a man has any doubts whether he has grieved God's Spirit, and his mind feels troubled, it is much better for him to go immediately to God, and ask forgiveness, than spend any time in finding excuses for his conduct, or laboring to divest it of its seeming obliquity. Restraining or suppressing prayer, in order to find excuses or palliations for infirmities, indiscretions, or improprieties of any kind, which appear to trench on the sacred limits of morality and godliness, may be to a man the worst of evils: humiliation and prayer for mercy and pardon can never be out of their place to any soul of man who, surrounded with evils, is ever liable to offend.

Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness?--Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts. As he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy; …

Necessity of Contemplating the Judgment-Seat of God, in Order to be Seriously Convinced of the Doctrine of Gratuitous Justification.
"Anyone who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty.
Would they argue with useless words, with speeches that have no value?
Your sin prompts your mouth; you adopt the tongue of the crafty.
