Job 36

36:1 Elihu also proceeded, and said, 36:2 Suffer mee a little, and I will shewe thee, that I haue yet to speake on Gods behalfe. 36:3 I will fetch my knowledge from afarre, and will ascribe righteousnesse to my Maker. 36:4 For truely my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge, is with thee. 36:5 Behold, God is mightie, and despiseth not any: he is mightie in strength and wisedome. 36:6 He preserueth not the life of the wicked: but giueth right to the poore. 36:7 Hee withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings are they on the throne, yea he doth establish them for euer, and they are exalted. 36:8 And if they bee bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction: 36:9 Then hee sheweth them their worke, and their transgressions, that they haue exceeded. 36:10 He openeth also their eare to discipline, and commandeth that they returne from iniquitie. 36:11 If they obey and serue him, they shall spend their dayes in prosperitie, and their yeeres 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 heape vp wrath: they crie not when he bindeth them. 36:14 They die in youth, and their life is among the vncleane. 36:15 He deliuereth the poore in his affliction, and openeth their eares in oppression. 36:16 Euen so would he haue remooued thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitnesse, and that which should be set on thy table, should be full of fatnesse. 36:17 But thou hast fulfilled the iudgement of the wicked: iudgement and iustice take hold on thee. 36:18 Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransome cannot deliuer thee. 36:19 Will he esteeme 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 iniquitie: for this hast thou chosen rather then affliction. 36:22 Beholde, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him 36:23 Who hath inioyned him his way or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquitie 36:24 Remember that thou magnifie his worke, which men behold. 36:25 Euery man may see it, man may behold it afarre off. 36:26 Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his yeeres be searched out. 36:27 For hee maketh small the drops of water: they powre downe raine according to the vapour thereof: 36:28 Which the clouds doe drop, and distill vpon man aboundantly. 36:29 Also can any vnderstand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle 36:30 Behold, he spreadeth his light vpon it, and couereth the bottome of the sea. 36:31 For by them iudgeth he the people, he giueth meate in abundance. 36:32 With clouds he couereth the light, and commaundeth it not to shine, by the cloud that commeth betwixt. 36:33 The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattel also concerning the Uapour.
