018:034:001
Furthermore Elihu answered and said,


018:034:002
Hear my words,
O ye wise men;
and give ear unto me,
ye that have knowledge.


018:034:003
For the ear trieth words,
as the mouth tasteth meat.


018:034:004
Let us choose to us judgment:
let us know among ourselves what is good.


018:034:005
For Job hath said,
I am righteous:
and God hath taken away my judgment.


018:034:006
Should I lie against my right?
my wound is incurable without transgression.


018:034:007
What man is like Job,
who drinketh up scorning like water?


018:034:008
Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity,
and walketh with wicked men.


018:034:009
For he hath said,
It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.


018:034:010
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.


018:034:011
For the work of a man shall he render unto him,
and cause every man to find according to his ways.


018:034:012
Yea,
surely God will not do wickedly,
neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.


018:034:013
Who hath given him a charge over the earth?
or who hath disposed the whole world?


018:034:014
If he set his heart upon man,
if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;


018:034:015
All flesh shall perish together,
and man shall turn again unto dust.


018:034:016
If now thou hast understanding,
hear this:
hearken to the voice of my words.


018:034:017
Shall even he that hateth right govern?
and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?


018:034:018
Is it fit to say to a king,
Thou art wicked?
and to princes,
Ye are ungodly?


018:034:019
How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes,
nor regardeth the rich more than the poor?
for they all are the work of his hands.


018:034:020
In a moment shall they die,
and the people shall be troubled at midnight,
and pass away:
and the mighty shall be taken away without hand.


018:034:021
For his eyes are upon the ways of man,
and he seeth all his goings.


018:034:022
There is no darkness,
nor shadow of death,
where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.


018:034:023
For he will not lay upon man more than right;
that he should enter into judgment with God.


018:034:024
He shall break in pieces mighty men without number,
and set others in their stead.


018:034:025
Therefore he knoweth their works,
and he overturneth them in the night,
so that they are destroyed.


018:034:026
He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others;


018:034:027
Because they turned back from him,
and would not consider any of his ways:


018:034:028
So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him,
and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.


018:034:029
When he giveth quietness,
who then can make trouble?
and when he hideth his face,
who then can behold him?
whether it be done against a nation,
or against a man only:


018:034:030
That the hypocrite reign not,
lest the people be ensnared.


018:034:031
Surely it is meet to be said unto God,
I have borne chastisement,
I will not offend any more:


018:034:032
That which I see not teach thou me:
if I have done iniquity,
I will do no more.


018:034:033
Should it be according to thy mind?
he will recompense it,
whether thou refuse,
or whether thou choose;
and not I:
therefore speak what thou knowest.


018:034:034
Let men of understanding tell me,
and let a wise man hearken unto me.


018:034:035
Job hath spoken without knowledge,
and his words were without wisdom.


018:034:036
My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men.


018:034:037
For he addeth rebellion unto his sin,
he clappeth his hands among us,
and multiplieth his words against God.
