Job 34

RHE 1 And Eliu continued his discourse, and said: NIV 1 Then Elihu said: RHE 2 Hear ye, wise men, my words, and ye learned, hearken to me: NIV 2 "Hear my words, you wise men; listen to me, you men of learning. RHE 3 For the ear trieth words, and the mouth discerneth meats by the taste. NIV 3 For the ear tests words as the tongue tastes food. RHE 4 Let us choose to us judgment, and let us see among ourselves what is the best. NIV 4 Let us discern for ourselves what is right; let us learn together what is good. RHE 5 For Job hath said: I am just, and God hath overthrown my judgment. NIV 5 "Job says, 'I am innocent, but God denies me justice. RHE 6 For in judging me there is a lie: my arrow is violent without any sin. NIV 6 Although I am right, I am considered a liar; although I am guiltless, his arrow inflicts an incurable wound.' RHE 7 What man is there like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water? NIV 7 What man is like Job, who drinks scorn like water? RHE 8 Who goeth in company with them that work iniquity, and walketh with wicked men? NIV 8 He keeps company with evildoers; he associates with wicked men. RHE 9 For he hath said: Man shall not please God, although he run with him. NIV 9 For he says, 'It profits a man nothing when he tries to please God.' RHE 10 Therefore, ye men of understanding, hear me: far from God be wickedness, and iniquity 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. RHE 11 For he will render to a man his work, and according to the ways of every one he will reward them. NIV 11 He repays a man for what he has done; he brings upon him what his conduct deserves. RHE 12 For in very deed God will not condemn without cause, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment. NIV 12 It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice. RHE 13 What other hath he appointed over the earth? or whom hath he set over the world which he made? NIV 13 Who appointed him over the earth? Who put him in charge of the whole world? RHE 14 If he turn his heart to him, he shall draw his spirit and breath unto himself. NIV 14 If it were his intention and he withdrew his spirit and breath, RHE 15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall return into ashes. NIV 15 all mankind would perish together and man would return to the dust. RHE 16 If then thou hast understanding, hear what is said, and hearken to the voice of my words. NIV 16 "If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say. RHE 17 Can he be healed that loveth not judgment? and how dost thou so far condemn him that is just? NIV 17 Can he who hates justice govern? Will you condemn the just and mighty One? RHE 18 Who saith to the king: Thou art an apostate: who calleth rulers ungodly: NIV 18 Is he not the One who says to kings, 'You are worthless,' and to nobles, 'You are wicked,' RHE 19 Who accepteth not the persons of princes: nor hath regarded the tyrant, when he contended against the poor man: for all are 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? RHE 20 They shall suddenly die, and the people shall be troubled at midnight, and they shall pass, and take away the violent 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. RHE 21 For his eyes are upon the ways of men, and he considereth all their steps. NIV 21 "His eyes are on the ways of men; he sees their every step. RHE 22 There is no darkness, and there is no shadow of death, where they may be hid who work iniquity. NIV 22 There is no dark place, no deep shadow, where evildoers can hide. RHE 23 For it is no longer in the power of man to enter into judgment with God. NIV 23 God has no need to examine men further, that they should come before him for judgment. RHE 24 He shall break in pieces many and innumerable, and shall make others to stand in their stead. NIV 24 Without inquiry he shatters the mighty and sets up others in their place. RHE 25 For he knoweth their works: and therefore he shall bring night on them, and they shall be destroyed. NIV 25 Because he takes note of their deeds, he overthrows them in the night and they are crushed. RHE 26 He hath struck them, as being wicked, in open sight. NIV 26 He punishes them for their wickedness where everyone can see them, RHE 27 Who as it were on purpose have revolted from him, and would not understand all his ways: NIV 27 because they turned from following him and had no regard for any of his ways. RHE 28 So that they caused the cry of the needy to come to him, and he heard the voice of the poor. NIV 28 They caused the cry of the poor to come before him, so that he heard the cry of the needy. RHE 29 For when he granteth peace, who is there that can condemn? When he hideth his countenance, who is there that can behold him, whether it regard nations, or all men? 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, RHE 30 Who maketh a man that is a hypocrite to reign for the sins of the people? NIV 30 to keep a godless man from ruling, from laying snares for the people. RHE 31 Seeing then I have spoken of God, I will not hinder thee in thy turn. NIV 31 "Suppose a man says to God, 'I am guilty but will offend no more. RHE 32 If I have erred, teach thou me: if I have spoken iniquity, I will add no more. NIV 32 Teach me what I cannot see; if I have done wrong, I will not do so again.' RHE 33 Doth God require it of thee, because it hath displeased thee? for thou begannest to speak, and not I: but if thou know any thing better, speak. 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. RHE 34 Let men of understanding speak to me, and let a wise man hearken to me. NIV 34 "Men of understanding declare, wise men who hear me say to me, RHE 35 But Job hath spoken foolishly, and his words sound not discipline. NIV 35 'Job speaks without knowledge; his words lack insight.' RHE 36 My father, let Job be tried even to the end: cease not from the man of iniquity. NIV 36 Oh, that Job might be tested to the utmost for answering like a wicked man! RHE 37 Because he addeth blasphemy upon his sins, let him be tied fast in the mean time amongst us: and then let him provoke God to judgment with his speeches. NIV 37 To his sin he adds rebellion; scornfully he claps his hands among us and multiplies his words against God."
