13, Job 35-37

Job 35

1 Elihu spake moreover, and said, View Tool
2 Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God’s? View Tool
3 For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin? View Tool
4 I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee. View Tool
5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou. View Tool
6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him? View Tool
7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand? 2 I View Tool
8 Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man. View Tool
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. View Tool
10 But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night; View Tool
11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? View Tool
12 There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. View Tool
13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it. 10 I View Tool
14 Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him. View Tool
15 But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity: View Tool
16 Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge. View Tool


Job 36

1 Elihu also proceeded, and said, View Tool
2 Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God’s behalf. View Tool
3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker. View Tool
4 For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee. View Tool
5 Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom. 2 I View Tool
6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor. 2 I View Tool
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. View Tool
8 And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction; View Tool
9 Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded. View Tool
10 He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity. View Tool
11 If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. 2 I View Tool
12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge. 2 I View Tool
13 But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them. View Tool
14 They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean. View Tool
15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression. 2 I View Tool
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. View Tool
17 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee. View Tool
18 Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee. View Tool
19 Will he esteem thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength. View Tool
20 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place. View Tool
21 Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction. View Tool
22 Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him? View Tool
23 Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity? View Tool
24 Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold. View Tool
25 Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off. View Tool
26 Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out. 2 I View Tool
27 For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: 2 I View Tool
28 Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly. View Tool
29 Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle? View Tool
30 Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea. View Tool
31 For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance. View Tool
32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt. View Tool
33 The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour. View Tool


Job 37

1 At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place. View Tool
2 Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth. 2 I View Tool
3 He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth. View Tool
4 After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard. View Tool
5 God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. 2 I View Tool
6 For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength. View Tool
7 He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. View Tool
8 Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places. View Tool
9 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. View Tool
10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 2 I View Tool
11 Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: View Tool
12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. View Tool
13 He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. View Tool
14 Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. View Tool
15 Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine? View Tool
16 Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge? View Tool
17 How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind? View Tool
18 Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass? View Tool
19 Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness. View Tool
20 Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up. View Tool
21 And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them. View Tool
22 Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty. 2 I View Tool
23 Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict. View Tool
24 Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart. View Tool
