018:035:001
Elihu spake moreover,
and said,


018:035:002
Thinkest thou this to be right,
that thou saidst,
My righteousness is more than God's?


018:035:003
For thou saidst,
What advantage will it be unto thee?
and,
What profit shall I have,
if I be cleansed from my sin?


018:035:004
I will answer thee,
and thy companions with thee.


018:035:005
Look unto the heavens,
and see;
and behold the clouds which are higher than thou.


018:035:006
If thou sinnest,
what doest thou against him?
or if thy transgressions be multiplied,
what doest thou unto him?


018:035:007
If thou be righteous,
what givest thou him?
or what receiveth he of thine hand?


018:035:008
Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art;
and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.


018:035:009
By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry:
they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.


018:035:010
But none saith,
Where is God my maker,
who giveth songs in the night;


018:035:011
Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth,
and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?


018:035:012
There they cry,
but none giveth answer,
because of the pride of evil men.


018:035:013
Surely God will not hear vanity,
neither will the Almighty regard it.


018:035:014
Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him,
yet judgment is before him;
therefore trust thou in him.


018:035:015
But now,
because it is not so,
he hath visited in his anger;
yet he knoweth it not in great extremity:


018:035:016
Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain;
he multiplieth words without knowledge.
