Job 35
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Elihu answers and says:

2“Have you reckoned this for judgment [when] you have said, || My righteousness [is] more than God’s?

3For you say, What does it profit You? What do I profit from my sin?

4I return words, and your friends with you,

5Behold attentively the heavens—and see, || And behold the clouds, || They have been higher than you.

6If you have sinned, what do you do against Him? And your transgressions have been multiplied, || What do you do to Him?

7If you have been righteous, || What do you give to Him? Or what does He receive from your hand?

8For a man like yourself [is] your wickedness, || And for a son of man your righteousness.

9Because of the multitude of oppressions || They cause to cry out, || They cry because of the arm of the mighty.

10And none said, Where [is] God my Maker? Giving songs in the night,

11Teaching us more than the beasts of the earth, || Indeed, He makes us wiser than the bird of the heavens.

12There they cry, and He does not answer, || Because of the pride of evildoers.

13Surely God does not hear vanity, || And the Mighty does not behold it.

14Indeed, though you say you do not behold Him, || Judgment [is] before Him, and stays for Him.

15And now, because there is not, || He has appointed His anger, || And He has not known in great extremity.

16And Job opens his mouth [with] vanity, || He multiplies words without knowledge.”
