Job 36

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

36:1 Elihu also proceeded, and said,

36:2 Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that [I have] yet to speak 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 [shall] not [be] false: he that is perfect in knowledge [is] with thee.

36:5 Behold, God [is] mighty, and despiseth not [any: he is] mighty in strength [and] wisdom.

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

36:7 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.

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

36:9 Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.

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

36:11 If they obey and serve [him], they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

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

36:13 But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them.

36:14 They die in youth, and their life [is] among the unclean.

36:15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.

36:16 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.

36:17 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold [on thee].

36:18 Because [there is] wrath, [beware] lest he take thee away with [his] stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.

36:19 Will he esteem thy riches? [no], not gold, nor all the forces of strength.

36:20 Desire not the night, when people 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 exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?

36:23 Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity?

36:24 Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold.

36:25 Every man may see it; man may behold [it] afar off.

36:26 Behold, God [is] great, and we know [him] not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.

36:27 For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:

36:28 Which the clouds do drop [and] distil upon man abundantly.

36:29 Also can [any] understand the spreadings of the clouds, [or] the noise of his tabernacle?

36:30 Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea.

36:31 For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance.

36:32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it [not to shine] by [the cloud] that cometh betwixt.

36:33 The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour.
