Job 34

34:1 Furthermore Elihu answered, and said, 34:2 Heare my wordes, O yee wise men, and giue eare vnto me, ye that haue knowledge. 34:3 For the eare trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meate. 34:4 Let vs chuse to vs iudgement: let vs know among our selues what is good. 34:5 For Iob hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my iudgement. 34:6 Should I lye against my right my wound is incurable without transgression. 34:7 What man is like Iob, who drinketh vp scorning like water 34:8 Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquitie, and walketh with wicked men. 34:9 For hee hath said, It profiteth a man nothing, that he should delight himselfe with God. 34:10 Therefore hearken vnto me, ye men of vnderstanding: farre bee it from God, that he should doe wickednes, and from the Almighty, that hee should commit iniquitie. 34:11 For the worke of a man shall he render vnto him, and cause euery man to finde according to his wayes. 34:12 Yea surely God will not doe wickedly, neither will the Almighty peruert iudgement. 34:13 Who hath giuen him a charge ouer the earth Or who hath disposed the whole world 34:14 If he set his heart vpon man, if he gather vnto himselfe his spirit and his breath; 34:15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turne againe vnto dust. 34:16 If now thou hast vnderstanding, heare this: hearken to the voyce of my words. 34:17 Shall euen he that hateth right, gouerne and wilt thou condemne him that is most iust 34:18 Is it fit to say to a King, Thou art wicked and to Princes, Ye are vngodly 34:19 How much lesse to him that accepteth not the persons of Princes, nor regardeth the rich more then the poore for they all are the woorke of his hands. 34:20 In a moment shall they die, and the people shalbe troubled at midnight, and passe away: and the mighty shall be taken away without hand. 34:21 For his eyes are vpon the wayes of man, and he seeth all his goings. 34:22 There is no darkenes, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquitie may hide themselues. 34:23 For hee will not lay vpon man more then right; that he should enter into iudgement with God. 34:24 He shall breake in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. 34:25 Therefore hee knoweth their workes, and he ouerturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed. 34:26 He striketh them as wicked men, in the open sight of others: 34:27 Because they turned backe from him, and would not consider any of his wayes. 34:28 So that they cause the cry of the poore to come vnto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted. 34:29 When he giueth quietnesse, who then can make trouble and when hee hideth his face, who then can beholde him whether it be done against a nation, or against a man onely: 34:30 That the hypocrite raigne not, lest the people be ensnared. 34:31 Surely it is meete to be said vnto God, I haue borne chastisement, I will not offend any more. 34:32 That which I see not, teach thou me; If I haue done iniquitie, I will doe no more. 34:33 Should it bee according to thy minde he will recompense it, whether thou refuse, or whether thou chuse, and not I: therefore speake what thou knowest. 34:34 Let men of vnderstanding tell mee, and let a wise man hearken vnto mee. 34:35 Iob hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdome. 34:36 My desire is that Iob may bee tried vnto the ende, because of his answeres for wicked men. 34:37 For he addeth rebellion vnto his sinne, hee clappeth his handes amongst vs, and multiplieth his words against God.
