JOB · Chapter 35
35:1 Elihu spoke moreover, and said,
35:2 Think you this to be right, that you said, My righteousness is more than God's?
35:3 For you said, What advantage will it be unto you? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
35:4 I will answer you, and your companions with you.
35:5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than you.
35:6 If you sin, what do you against him? or if your transgressions be multiplied, what do you unto him?
35:7 If you be righteous, what give you him? or what receives he of your hand?
35:8 Your wickedness may hurt a man as you are; and your righteousness may profit the son of man.
35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.
35:10 But none says, Where is God my maker, who gives songs in the night;
35:11 Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, and makes us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
35:12 There they cry, but none gives answer, because of the pride of evil men.
35:13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
35:14 Although you says you shall not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust you in him.
35:15 But now, because it is not so, he has visited in his anger; yet he knows it not in great extremity:
35:16 Therefore does Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplies words without knowledge.
