Job 36

1 - Elihu also proceeded, and said,

2 - Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God's behalf.

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

4 - For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.

5 - Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.

6 - He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.

7 - 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.

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

9 - Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.

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

11 - If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

12 - But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

13 - But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them.

14 - They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.

15 - He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.

16 - 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.

17 - But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee.

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

19 - Will he esteem thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength.

20 - Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.

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

22 - Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?

23 - Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity?

24 - Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold.

25 - Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off.

26 - Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.

27 - For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:

28 - Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.

29 - Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?

30 - Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea.

31 - For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance.

32 - With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt.

33 - The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour.
