Unchecked Copy BoxJob 35:2 -
Thinkest thou this to be thy right,
Or sayest thou, My righteousness is more than God’s,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 35:3 -

And, What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?

I will answer thee,
And thy companions with thee.

Look unto the heavens, and see;
And behold the skies, which are higher than thou.

If thou hast sinned, what effectest thou against him?
And if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 35:7 -
If thou be righteous, what givest thou him?
Or what receiveth he of thy hand?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 35:8 -
Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art;
And thy righteousness may profit a son of man.

By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out;
They cry for help by reason of the arm of the mighty.

And maketh us wiser than the birds of the heavens?

There they cry, but none giveth answer,
Because of the pride of evil men.

Surely God will not hear an empty cry,
Neither will the Almighty regard it.

How much less when thou sayest thou beholdest him not,
The cause is before him, and thou waitest for him!
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 35:15 -
But now, because he hath not visited in his anger,
Neither doth he greatly regard arrogance;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 35:16 -
Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vanity;
He multiplieth words without knowledge.
