JOB 35

Jb 35:1Then Elihu continued and said,

Jb 35:2Do you consider this to be just? / Do you say, My righteousness is more than God’s,

Jb 35:3So that you say, What advantage is there to me, / What do I profit, more than if I had sinned?

Jb 35:4I will respond to you with words, / And to your companions with you.

Jb 35:5Look unto heaven and see; / And behold the skies: They are higher than you.

Jb 35:6If you sin, what do you accomplish against Him? / And if your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to Him?

Jb 35:7If you are righteous, what can you give to Him, / Or what does He receive from your hand?

Jb 35:8Your wickedness affects a man like you, / And your righteousness, a son of man.

Jb 35:9Because of the multitude of oppressions they cry out; / They cry for help because of the arm of the mighty.

Jb 35:10But no one says, Where is God my Maker, / Who gives songs in the night,

Jb 35:11Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth / And makes us wiser than the birds of heaven?

Jb 35:12There they cry, but He does not answer, / Because of the pride of evil men.

Jb 35:13Surely God does not hear an empty cry, / And the Almighty does not regard it.

Jb 35:14How much less when you say that you do not behold Him, / That the cause is before Him and you are waiting on Him!

Jb 35:15But now, because He has not visited in His anger / Nor regarded such great arrogance,

Jb 35:16Job opens his mouth in vanity; / He multiplies words without knowledge.
