018:036:001
Elihu also proceeded,
and said,


018:036:002
Suffer me a little,
and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God's behalf.


018:036:003
I will fetch my knowledge from afar,
and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.


018:036:004
For truly my words shall not be false:
he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.


018:036:005
Behold,
God is mighty,
and despiseth not any:
he is mighty in strength and wisdom.


018:036:006
He preserveth not the life of the wicked:
but giveth right to the poor.


018:036:007
He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous:
but with kings are they on the throne;
yea,
he doth establish them for ever,
and they are exalted.


018:036:008
And if they be bound in fetters,
and be holden in cords of affliction;


018:036:009
Then he sheweth them their work,
and their transgressions that they have exceeded.


018:036:010
He openeth also their ear to discipline,
and commandeth that they return from iniquity.


018:036:011
If they obey and serve him,
they shall spend their days in prosperity,
and their years in pleasures.


018:036:012
But if they obey not,
they shall perish by the sword,
and they shall die without knowledge.


018:036:013
But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath:
they cry not when he bindeth them.


018:036:014
They die in youth,
and their life is among the unclean.


018:036:015
He delivereth the poor in his affliction,
and openeth their ears in oppression.


018:036:016
Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place,
where there is no straitness;
and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness.


018:036:017
But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked:
judgment and justice take hold on thee.


018:036:018
Because there is wrath,
beware lest he take thee away with his stroke:
then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.


018:036:019
Will he esteem thy riches?
no,
not gold,
nor all the forces of strength.


018:036:020
Desire not the night,
when people are cut off in their place.


018:036:021
Take heed,
regard not iniquity:
for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.


018:036:022
Behold,
God exalteth by his power:
who teacheth like him?


018:036:023
Who hath enjoined him his way?
or who can say,
Thou hast wrought iniquity?


018:036:024
Remember that thou magnify his work,
which men behold.


018:036:025
Every man may see it;
man may behold it afar off.


018:036:026
Behold,
God is great,
and we know him not,
neither can the number of his years be searched out.


018:036:027
For he maketh small the drops of water:
they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:


018:036:028
Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.


018:036:029
Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds,
or the noise of his tabernacle?


018:036:030
Behold,
he spreadeth his light upon it,
and covereth the bottom of the sea.


018:036:031
For by them judgeth he the people;
he giveth meat in abundance.


018:036:032
With clouds he covereth the light;
and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt.


018:036:033
The noise thereof sheweth concerning it,
the cattle also concerning the vapour.
