Eliphaz in Fausset's Bible Dictionary

("God for strength".) 1. Esau's son by Adah; Teman's father (Genesis 36:4; 1 Chronicles 1:35-36). 2. First of Job's three friends, the "Temanite," sprung from the former Eliphaz Teman answers to Edom (Jeremiah 49:20), part of Arabia Petraea. Calmer and less vehement against Job than Bildad and Zophar, but condemned at the end for the same error, in spite. of the facts of daily life, that God's retributions here are complete, and that severe trial proved Job's past piety to be but hypocrisy. God's unapproachable majesty and purity are well get forth by him (Job 4; Job 5:14-16).
