Job 34

34:1 And Elihu answereth and saith: 34:2 Hear, O wise men, my words, And, O knowing ones, give ear to me. 34:3 For the ear doth try words, And the palate tasteth to eat. 34:4 Judgment let us choose for ourselves, Let us know among ourselves what [is] good. 34:5 For Job hath said, `I have been righteous, And God hath turned aside my right, 34:6 Against my right do I lie Mortal [is] mine arrow--without transgression.' 34:7 Who [is] a man like Job He drinketh scoffing like water, 34:8 And he hath travelled for company With workers of iniquity, So as to go with men of wickedness. 34:9 For he hath said, `It doth not profit a man, When he delighteth himself with God.'  34:10 Therefore, O men of heart, hearken to me; Far be it from God to do wickedness, And [from] the Mighty to do perverseness: 34:11 For the work of man he repayeth to him, And according to the path of each He doth cause him to find. 34:12 Yea, truly, God doth not do wickedly, And the Mighty doth not pervert judgment. 34:13 Who hath inspected for Himself the earth And who hath placed all the habitable world 34:14 If He doth set on him His heart, His spirit and his breath unto Him He gathereth. 34:15 Expire doth all flesh together, And man to dust returneth.  34:16 And if [there is] understanding, hear this, Give ear to the voice of my words. 34:17 Yea, doth one hating justice govern Or the Most Just dost thou condemn 34:18 Who hath said to a king--`Worthless,' Unto princes--`Wicked' 34:19 That hath not accepted the person of princes, Nor hath known the rich before the poor, For a work of His hands [are] all of them. 34:20 [ In] a moment they die, and at midnight Shake do people, and they pass away, And they remove the mighty without hand. 34:21 For His eyes [are] on the ways of each, And all his steps He doth see. 34:22 There is no darkness nor death-shade, For workers of iniquity to be hidden there; 34:23 For He doth not suffer man any more, To go unto God in judgment, 34:24 He breaketh the mighty--no searching! And He appointeth others in their stead. 34:25 Therefore He knoweth their works, And He hath overturned by night, And they are bruised. 34:26 As wicked He hath stricken them, In the place of beholders. 34:27 Because that against right They have turned aside from after Him, And none of His ways have considered wisely, 34:28 To cause to come in unto Him The cry of the poor, And the cry of the afflicted He heareth. 34:29 And He giveth rest, and who maketh wrong And hideth the face, and who beholdeth it And in reference to a nation and to a man, [It is] the same. 34:30 From the reigning of a profane man, From the snares of a people;  34:31 For unto God hath any said: `I have taken away, I do not corruptly, 34:32 Besides [that which] I see, shew Thou me, If iniquity I have done--I do not add' 34:33 By thee doth He recompense, That thou hast refused--That thou dost choose, and not I And what thou hast known, speak. 34:34 Let men of heart say to me, And a wise man is hearkening to me. 34:35 Job--not with knowledge doth he speak, And his words [are] not with wisdom. 34:36 My Father! let Job be tried--unto victory, Because of answers for men of iniquity, 34:37 For he doth add to his sin, Transgression among us he vomiteth, And multiplieth his sayings to God.
