Chapter 34 27 Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways:28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.29 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:30 That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.31 Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:32 That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.33 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.34 Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me.35 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.36 My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men.37 For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.
Chapter 35 1 Elihu spake moreover, and said,2 Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God's?3 For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?4 I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee.5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou.6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand?8 Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.
