Job 36

36:1 And Elihu addeth and saith: -- 36:2 Honour me a little, and I shew thee, That yet for God [are] words. 36:3 I lift up my knowledge from afar, And to my Maker I ascribe righteousness. 36:4 For, truly, my words [are] not false, The perfect in knowledge [is] with thee.  36:5 Lo, God [is] mighty, and despiseth not, Mighty [in] power [and] heart. 36:6 He reviveth not the wicked, And the judgment of the poor appointeth; 36:7 He withdraweth not from the righteous His eyes, And [from] kings on the throne, And causeth them to sit for ever, and they are high, 36:8 And if prisoners in fetters They are captured with cords of affliction, 36:9 Then He declareth to them their work, And their transgressions, Because they have become mighty, 36:10 And He uncovereth their ear for instruction, And saith that they turn back from iniquity. 36:11 If they do hear and serve, They complete their days in good, And their years in pleasantness. 36:12 And if they do not hearken, By the dart they pass away, And expire without knowledge. 36:13 And the profane in heart set the face, They cry not when He hath bound them. 36:14 Their soul dieth in youth, And their life among the defiled.  36:15 He draweth out the afflicted in his affliction, And uncovereth in oppression their ear. 36:16 And also He moved thee from a strait place, [To] a broad place--no straitness under it, And the sitting beyond of thy table Hath been full of fatness. 36:17 And the judgment of the wicked thou hast fulfilled, Judgment and justice are upheld--because of fury, 36:18 Lest He move thee with a stroke, And the abundance of an atonement turn thee not aside. 36:19 Doth He value thy riches He hath gold, and all the forces of power. 36:20 Desire not the night, For the going up of peoples in their stead. 36:21 Take heed--do not turn unto iniquity, For on this thou hast fixed Rather than [on] affliction. 36:22 Lo, God doth sit on high by His power, Who [is] like Him--a teacher 36:23 Who hath appointed unto Him his way And who said, `Thou hast done iniquity'  36:24 Remember that thou magnify His work That men have beheld. 36:25 All men have looked on it, Man looketh attentively from afar. 36:26 Lo, God [is] high, And we know not the number of His years, Yea, there [is] no searching. 36:27 When He doth diminish droppings of the waters, They refine rain according to its vapour, 36:28 Which clouds do drop, They distil on man abundantly. 36:29 Yea, doth [any] understand The spreadings out of a cloud The noises of His tabernacle 36:30 Lo, He hath spread over it His light, And the roots of the sea He hath covered, 36:31 For by them He doth judge peoples, He giveth food in abundance. 36:32 By two palms He hath covered the light, And layeth a charge over it in meeting, 36:33 He sheweth by it [to] his friend substance, Anger against perversity.
