Job 35

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

35:1 And Elihu made answer and said,

35:2 Does it seem to you to be right, and righteousness before God, to say,

35:3 What profit is it to me, and how am I better off than if I had done wrong?

35:4 I will make answer to you and to your friends:

35:5 Let your eyes be turned to the heavens, and lifted up to see the skies; they are higher than you.

35:6 If you have done wrong, is he any the worse for it? and if your sins are great in number, what is it to him?

35:7 If you are upright, what do you give to him? or what does he take from your hand?

35:8 Your evil-doing may have an effect on a man like yourself, or your righteousness on a son of man.

35:9 Because the hand of the cruel is hard on them, men are making sounds of grief; they are crying out for help because of the arm of the strong.

35:10 But no one has said, Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night;

35:11 Who gives us more knowledge than the beasts of the earth, and makes us wiser than the birds of the heaven?

35:12 There they are crying out because of the pride of the evil-doers, but he gives them no answer.

35:13 But God will not give ear to what is false, or the Ruler of all take note of it;

35:14 How much less when you say that you do not see him; that the cause is before him, and you are waiting for him.

35:15 And now ... ;

35:16 And Job's mouth is open wide to give out what is of no profit, increasing words without knowledge.
