Job 35

34:1 Furthermore Elihu answered and said,
34:2 Hear my words, O ye wise [men]; and give ear to me, ye that
 have knowledge.
34:3 For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth food.
34:4 Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves
 what [is] good.
34:5 For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away
 my judgment.
34:6 Should I lie against my right? my wound [is] incurable
 without transgression.
34:7 What man [is] like Job, [who] drinketh up scorning like
34:8 Who goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and
 walketh with wicked men.
34:9 For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should
 delight himself with God.
34:10 Therefore hearken to me, ye men of understanding: far be
 it from God, [that he should do] wickedness; and [from] the
 Almighty, [that he should commit] iniquity.
34:11 For the work of a man he shall render to him, and cause
 every man to find according to [his] ways.
34:12 Yes, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the
 Almighty pervert judgment.
34:13 Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath
 disposed the whole world?
34:14 If he should set his heart upon man, [if] he should gather
 to himself his spirit and his breath;
34:15 All flesh would perish together, and man would turn again
 to dust.
34:16 If now [thou hast] understanding, hear this: hearken to
 the voice of my words.
34:17 Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou
 condemn him that is most just?
34:18 [Is it fit] to say to a king, [Thou art] wicked? [and] to
 princes, [Ye are] ungodly?
34:19 [How much less to him] that accepteth not the persons of
 princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they
 all [are] the work of his hands.
34:20 In a moment they shall die, and the people shall be
 troubled at midnight, and pass away: and the mighty shall be
 taken away without hand.
34:21 For his eyes [are] upon the ways of man, and he seeth all
 his goings.
34:22 [There is] no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the
 workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
34:23 For he will not lay upon man more [than right]; that he
 should enter into judgment with God.
34:24 He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and
 set others in their stead.
34:25 Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth
 [them] in the night, so that they are destroyed.
34:26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of
34:27 Because they turned back from him, and would not consider
 any of his ways:
34:28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come to him, and
 he heareth the cry of the afflicted.
34:29 When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and
 when he hideth [his] face, who then can behold him? whether [it
 be done] against a nation, or against a man only:
34:30 That the hypocrite may not reign, lest the people should
 be ensnared.
34:31 Surely it is meet to be said to God, I have borne
 [chastisement], I will not offend [any more]:
34:32 [That which] I see not teach thou me: if I have done
 iniquity, I will do no more.
34:33 [Should it be] according to thy mind? he will recompense
 it, whether thou shalt refuse, or whether thou shalt choose;
 and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest.
34:34 Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man
 hearken to me.
34:35 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words [were]
 without wisdom.
34:36 My desire [is that] Job may be tried to the end, because
 of [his] answers for wicked men.
34:37 For he addeth rebellion to his sin, he clappeth [his
 hands] among us, and multiplieth his words against God.
