Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:1 - Moreover Elihu answered and said,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:2 -
Hear my words, ye wise men;
And give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:3 -
For the ear trieth words,
As the palate tasteth food.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:4 -
Let us choose for us that which is right:
Let us know among ourselves what is good.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:5 -
For Job hath said, I am righteous,
And God hath taken away my right:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:6 -
Notwithstanding my right I am accounted a liar;
My wound is incurable, though I am without transgression.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:7 -
What man is like Job,
Who drinketh up scoffing like water,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:8 -
Who goeth in company with the workers of iniquity,
And walketh with wicked men?

For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing
That he should delight himself with God.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:10 -
Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding:
Far be it from God, that he should do wickedness,
And from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:11 -
For the work of a man will he render unto him,
And cause every man to find according to his ways.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:12 -
Yea, of a surety, God will not do wickedly,
Neither will the Almighty pervert justice.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:13 -
Who gave him a charge over the earth?
Or who hath disposed the whole world?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:14 -
If he set his heart upon himself,
If he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:15 -
All flesh shall perish together,
And man shall turn again unto dust.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:16 -
If now thou hast understanding, hear this:
Hearken to the voice of my words.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:17 -
Shall even one that hateth justice govern?
And wilt thou condemn him that is righteous and mighty?—
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:18 -
Him that saith to a king, Thou art vile,
Or to nobles, Ye are wicked;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:19 -
That respecteth not the persons of princes,
Nor regardeth the rich more than the poor;
For they all are the work of his hands.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:20 -
In a moment they die, even at midnight;
The people are shaken and pass away,
And the mighty are taken away without hand.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:21 -
For his eyes are upon the ways of a man,
And he seeth all his goings.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:22 -
There is no darkness, nor thick gloom,
Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:23 -
For he needeth not further to consider a man,
That he should go before God in judgment.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:24 -
He breaketh in pieces mighty men in ways past finding out,
And setteth others in their stead.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:25 -
Therefore he taketh knowledge of their works;
And he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:26 -
He striketh them as wicked men
In the open sight of others;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:27 -
Because they turned aside from following him,
And would not have regard in any of his ways:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:28 -
So that they caused the cry of the poor to come unto him,
And he heard the cry of the afflicted.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:29 -
When he giveth quietness, who then can condemn?
And when he hideth his face, who then can behold him?
Alike whether it be done unto a nation, or unto a man:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:30 -
That the godless man reign not,
That there be none to ensnare the people.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:31 -
For hath any said unto God,
I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:32 -
That which I see not teach thou me:
If I have done iniquity, I will do it no more?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:33 -
Shall his recompense be as thou wilt, that thou refusest it?
For thou must choose, and not I:
Therefore speak what thou knowest.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:34 -
Men of understanding will say unto me,
Yea, every wise man that heareth me:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:35 -
Job speaketh without knowledge,
And his words are without wisdom.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:36 -
Would that Job were tried unto the end,
Because of his answering like wicked men.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 34:37 -
For he addeth rebellion unto his sin;
He clappeth his hands among us,
And multiplieth his words against God.
