Job 34

DBY 1 Moreover Elihu answered and said, NIV 1 Then Elihu said: DBY 2 Hear my words, ye wise [men]; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge. NIV 2 "Hear my words, you wise men; listen to me, you men of learning. DBY 3 For the ear trieth words, as the palate tasteth food. NIV 3 For the ear tests words as the tongue tastes food. DBY 4 Let us choose for ourselves what is right; let us know among ourselves what is good! NIV 4 Let us discern for ourselves what is right; let us learn together what is good. DBY 5 For Job hath said, I am righteous, and God hath taken away my judgment: NIV 5 "Job says, 'I am innocent, but God denies me justice. DBY 6 Should I lie against my right? My wound is incurable without transgression. NIV 6 Although I am right, I am considered a liar; although I am guiltless, his arrow inflicts an incurable wound.' DBY 7 What man is like Job? he drinketh up scorning like water, NIV 7 What man is like Job, who drinks scorn like water? DBY 8 And goeth in company with workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men. NIV 8 He keeps company with evildoers; he associates with wicked men. DBY 9 For he hath said, It profiteth not a man if he delight himself in God. NIV 9 For he says, 'It profits a man nothing when he tries to please God.' DBY 10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: Far be wickedness from God, and wrong from the Almighty! NIV 10 "So listen to me, you men of understanding. Far be it from God to do evil, from the Almighty to do wrong. DBY 11 For a man's work will he render to him, and cause every one to find according to [his] way. NIV 11 He repays a man for what he has done; he brings upon him what his conduct deserves. DBY 12 Yea, surely, God acteth not wickedly, and the Almighty perverteth not judgment. NIV 12 It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice. DBY 13 Who hath entrusted to him the earth? and who hath disposed the whole world? NIV 13 Who appointed him over the earth? Who put him in charge of the whole world? DBY 14 If he only thought of himself, [and] gathered unto him his spirit and his breath, NIV 14 If it were his intention and he withdrew his spirit and breath, DBY 15 All flesh would expire together, and man would return to the dust. NIV 15 all mankind would perish together and man would return to the dust. DBY 16 If now [thou hast] understanding, hear this: give ear to the voice of my words! NIV 16 "If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say. DBY 17 Should he that hateth right indeed govern? and wilt thou condemn the All-just? NIV 17 Can he who hates justice govern? Will you condemn the just and mighty One? DBY 18 Shall one say to a king, Belial? to nobles, Wicked? NIV 18 Is he not the One who says to kings, 'You are worthless,' and to nobles, 'You are wicked,' DBY 19 [How then to him] that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich man more than the poor? for they are all the work of his hands. NIV 19 who shows no partiality to princes and does not favor the rich over the poor, for they are all the work of his hands? DBY 20 In a moment they die, even at midnight the people are convulsed and pass away; and the strong are taken away without hand. NIV 20 They die in an instant, in the middle of the night; the people are shaken and they pass away; the mighty are removed without human hand. DBY 21 For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his steps. NIV 21 "His eyes are on the ways of men; he sees their every step. DBY 22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. NIV 22 There is no dark place, no deep shadow, where evildoers can hide. DBY 23 For he doth not long consider a man, to bring him before God in judgment. NIV 23 God has no need to examine men further, that they should come before him for judgment. DBY 24 He breaketh in pieces mighty men without inquiry, and setteth others in their stead; NIV 24 Without inquiry he shatters the mighty and sets up others in their place. DBY 25 Since he knoweth their actions; and he overthroweth [them] in the night, and they are crushed. NIV 25 Because he takes note of their deeds, he overthrows them in the night and they are crushed. DBY 26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others, NIV 26 He punishes them for their wickedness where everyone can see them, DBY 27 Because they have turned back from him, and would consider none of his ways; NIV 27 because they turned from following him and had no regard for any of his ways. DBY 28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted. NIV 28 They caused the cry of the poor to come before him, so that he heard the cry of the needy. DBY 29 When he giveth quietness, who then will disturb? and when he hideth [his] face, who shall behold him? and this towards a nation, or towards a man alike; NIV 29 But if he remains silent, who can condemn him? If he hides his face, who can see him? Yet he is over man and nation alike, DBY 30 That the ungodly man reign not, that the people be not ensnared. NIV 30 to keep a godless man from ruling, from laying snares for the people. DBY 31 For hath he said unto God, I bear [chastisement], I will not offend; NIV 31 "Suppose a man says to God, 'I am guilty but will offend no more. DBY 32 What I see not, teach thou me; if I have done wrong, I will do so no more? NIV 32 Teach me what I cannot see; if I have done wrong, I will not do so again.' DBY 33 Shall he recompense according to thy mind? for thou hast refused [his judgment]; for thou so choosest, and not I; speak then what thou knowest. NIV 33 Should God then reward you on your terms, when you refuse to repent? You must decide, not I; so tell me what you know. DBY 34 Men of understanding will say to me, and a wise man who heareth me: NIV 34 "Men of understanding declare, wise men who hear me say to me, DBY 35 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were not with intelligence. NIV 35 'Job speaks without knowledge; his words lack insight.' DBY 36 Would that Job may be tried unto the end, because of [his] answers after the manner of evil men! NIV 36 Oh, that Job might be tested to the utmost for answering like a wicked man! DBY 37 For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth [his hands] among us, and multiplieth his words against God. NIV 37 To his sin he adds rebellion; scornfully he claps his hands among us and multiplies his words against God."
