Job 35
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1AGAIN Elihu spoke, and said,

2Do you think you were justified in saying, I have been found blameless by God?

3If you have said it, what advantage will it be to you? And what should I gain if I should condemn you?

4I will answer you with words, you and your friends with you.

5Look to the heavens, and observe the clouds which are higher than you.

6If you sin, what difference does it make to him? And if your iniquities be multiplied, what does it matter to him?

7If you are righteous, what do you give to him? Or what does he receive from your hand?

8Your wickedness is to yourself; and your righteousness is to yourself.

9Because of the multitude of oppressions men howl; and many cry out because of iniquity.

10And none says, Where is God my Maker, who gives counsel in the night,

11Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, and makes us wiser than the fowls of the air?

12They cry, but he does not answer them,

13Because God does not hear the empty pride of evildoers, nor does he praise it.

14Although you have said, I will not praise him, plead before him and supplicate before him.

15For now he does not punish with his anger; and he does not harm any soul.

16Therefore Job has spoken in vain; he multiplies words without knowledge.
