Job 36

36:1 Elihu also proceeded, and said,
36:2 Suffer me a little, and I will show thee that [I have] yet
 to speak on God's behalf.
36:3 I will bring my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe
 righteousness to my Maker.
36:4 For truly my words [shall] not [be] false: he that is
 perfect in knowledge [is] with thee.
36:5 Behold, God [is] mighty, and despiseth not [any]: [he is]
 mighty in strength [and] wisdom.
36:6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right
 to the poor.
36:7 He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with
 kings [are they] on the throne; yes, he doth establish them for
 ever, and they are exalted.
36:8 And if [they are] bound in fetters, [and] are held in cords
 of affliction;
36:9 Then he showeth them their work, and their transgressions
 that they have exceeded.
36:10 He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth
 that they return from iniquity.
36:11 If they obey and serve [him], they shall spend their days
 in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
36:12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and
 they shall die without knowledge.
36:13 But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not
 when he bindeth them.
36:14 They die in youth, and their life [is] among the unclean.
36:15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth
 their ears in oppression.
36:16 Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait
 [into] a broad place, where [there is] no straitness; and that
 which should be set on thy table [would be] full of fatness.
36:17 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked:
 judgment and justice take hold [on thee].
36:18 Because [there is] wrath, [beware] lest he take thee away
 with [his] stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.
36:19 Will he esteem thy riches? [no], not gold, nor all the
 forces of strength.
36:20 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their
36:21 Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen
 rather than affliction.
36:22 Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?
36:23 Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast
 wrought iniquity?
36:24 Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold.
36:25 Every man may see it; man may behold [it] afar off.
36:26 Behold, God [is] great, and we know [him] not, neither can
 the number of his years be searched out.
36:27 For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down
 rain according to the vapor of it.
36:28 Which the clouds do drop [and] distill upon man
36:29 Also can [any] understand the spreadings of the clouds,
 [or] the noise of his tabernacle?
36:30 Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the
 bottom of the sea.
36:31 For by them he judgeth the people; he giveth food in
36:32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it [not
 to shine] by [the] intervening [cloud].
36:33 The noise of it showeth concerning it, the cattle also
 concerning the vapor.
