Job - Chapter 036

36:1
Elihu also proceeded, and said:

36:2
Suffer me a little, and I will tell thee; for there are yet words on God's behalf.

36:3
I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.

36:4
For truly my words are not false; one that is upright in mind is with thee.

36:5
Behold, God is mighty, yet He despiseth not any; He is mighty in strength of understanding.

36:6
He preserveth not the life of the wicked; but giveth to the poor their right.

36:7
He withdraweth not His eyes from the righteous; but with kings upon the throne He setteth them for ever, and they are exalted.

36:8
And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;

36:9
Then He declareth unto them their work, and their transgressions, that they have behaved themselves proudly.

36:10
He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.

36:11
If they hearken and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

36:12
But if they hearken not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

36:13
But they that are godless in heart lay up anger; they cry not for help when He bindeth them.

36:14
Their soul perisheth in youth, and their life as that of the depraved.

36:15
He delivereth the afflicted by His affliction, and openeth their ear by tribulation.

36:16
Yea, He hath allured thee out of distress into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which is set on thy table is full of fatness;

36:17
And thou art full of the judgment of the wicked; judgment and justice take hold on them.

36:18
For beware of wrath, lest thou be led away by thy sufficiency; neither let the greatness of the ransom turn thee aside.

36:19
Will thy riches avail, that are without stint, or all the forces of thy strength?

36:20
Desire not the night, when peoples are cut off in their place.

36:21
Take heed, regard not iniquity; for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.

36:22
Behold, God doeth loftily in His power; who is a teacher like Him?

36:23
Who hath enjoined Him His way? Or who hath said: 'Thou hast wrought unrighteousness'?

36:24
Remember that thou magnify His work, whereof men have sung.

36:25
All men have looked thereon; man beholdeth it afar off.

36:26
Behold, God is great, beyond our knowledge; the number of His years is unsearchable.

36:27
For He draweth away the drops of water, which distil rain from His vapour;

36:28
Which the skies pour down and drop upon the multitudes of men.

36:29
Yea, can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, the crashings of His pavilion?

36:30
Behold, He spreadeth His light upon it; and He covereth the depths of the sea.

36:31
For by these He judgeth the peoples; He giveth food in abundance.

36:32
He covereth His hands with the lightning, and giveth it a charge that it strike the mark.

36:33
The noise thereof telleth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the storm that cometh up.
