Job 34

TMB 1 Furthermore, Elihu answered and said: NIV 1 Then Elihu said: TMB 2 "Hear my words, O 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. TMB 3 For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat. NIV 3 For the ear tests words as the tongue tastes food. TMB 4 Let us choose for us judgment; 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. TMB 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. TMB 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.' TMB 7 What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water, NIV 7 What man is like Job, who drinks scorn like water? TMB 8 who goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men? NIV 8 He keeps company with evildoers; he associates with wicked men. TMB 9 For he hath said, `It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.' NIV 9 For he says, 'It profits a man nothing when he tries to please God.' TMB 10 "Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding; far be it from God that He should do wickedness, and from the Almighty that He should commit iniquity. NIV 10 "So listen to me, you men of understanding. Far be it from God to do evil, from the Almighty to do wrong. TMB 11 For the work of a man shall He render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways. NIV 11 He repays a man for what he has done; he brings upon him what his conduct deserves. TMB 12 Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment. NIV 12 It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice. TMB 13 Who hath given Him a charge over the earth? Or who hath disposed the whole world? NIV 13 Who appointed him over the earth? Who put him in charge of the whole world? TMB 14 If He set His heart upon man, if He gather unto Himself his Spirit and his breath, NIV 14 If it were his intention and he withdrew his spirit and breath, TMB 15 all flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust. NIV 15 all mankind would perish together and man would return to the dust. TMB 16 "If now thou hast understanding, hear this; hearken to the voice of my words: NIV 16 "If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say. TMB 17 Shall even he that hateth right govern? And wilt thou condemn him that is most just? NIV 17 Can he who hates justice govern? Will you condemn the just and mighty One? TMB 18 Is it fit to say to a king, `Thou art wicked'? And to princes, `Ye are ungodly'? NIV 18 Is he not the One who says to kings, 'You are worthless,' and to nobles, 'You are wicked,' TMB 19 How much less to Him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor! For they 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? TMB 20 In a moment shall they die, and the people shall be troubled at midnight, and pass away; and the mighty shall be 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. TMB 21 "For His eyes are upon the ways of man, and He seeth all his goings. NIV 21 "His eyes are on the ways of men; he sees their every step. TMB 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. TMB 23 For He will not lay upon man more than right, that he should enter into judgment with God. NIV 23 God has no need to examine men further, that they should come before him for judgment. TMB 24 He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. NIV 24 Without inquiry he shatters the mighty and sets up others in their place. TMB 25 Therefore He knoweth their works, and He overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed. NIV 25 Because he takes note of their deeds, he overthrows them in the night and they are crushed. TMB 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, TMB 27 because they turned back from Him, and would not consider any of His ways, NIV 27 because they turned from following him and had no regard for any of his ways. TMB 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. TMB 29 When He giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? And when He hideth His face, who then can behold Him, whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only?-- 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, TMB 30 that the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared. NIV 30 to keep a godless man from ruling, from laying snares for the people. TMB 31 "Surely it is meet to be said unto God, `I have borne chastisement; I will not offend any more. NIV 31 "Suppose a man says to God, 'I am guilty but will offend no more. TMB 32 That which I see not, teach Thou me; if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.' NIV 32 Teach me what I cannot see; if I have done wrong, I will not do so again.' TMB 33 Should it be according to thy mind? He will recompense it, whether thou refuse or whether thou choose, and not I; therefore speak 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. TMB 34 Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me. NIV 34 "Men of understanding declare, wise men who hear me say to me, TMB 35 "Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom. NIV 35 'Job speaks without knowledge; his words lack insight.' TMB 36 My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end, because of his answers for wicked men. NIV 36 Oh, that Job might be tested to the utmost for answering like a wicked man! TMB 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."
