Job, Chapter 35

35:1 Moreover Elihu answered and said,
35:2 Do you think this to be [your] right, [Or] do you say, My righteousness is more than God's,
35:3 That you say, What advantage will it be to you? [And], What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?
35:4 I will answer you, And your companions with you.
35:5 Look to the heavens, and see; And look at the skies, which are higher than you.
35:6 If you have sinned, what effect do you have against him? And if your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to him?
35:7 If you are righteous, what do you give him? Or what does he receive of your hand?
35:8 Your wickedness [may hurt] a man as you are; And your righteousness [may profit] a son of man.
35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out; They cry for help by reason of the arm of the mighty.
35:10 But none says, Where is God my Maker, Who gives songs in the night,
35:11 Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, And makes us wiser than the birds of the heavens?
35:12 There they cry, but none gives answer, Because of the pride of evil men.
35:13 Surely God will not hear an empty [cry], Neither will the Almighty regard it.
35:14 How much less when you say you don't see him, The cause is before him, and you wait for him!
35:15 But now, because he has not visited in his anger, Neither does he greatly regard foolishness;
35:16 Therefore Job opens his mouth in vanity; He multiplies words without knowledge.
