Job 34

WBT 1 Furthermore Elihu answered and said, NIV 1 Then Elihu said: WBT 2 Hear my words, O ye wise [men]; and give ear to me, ye that have knowledge. NIV 2 "Hear my words, you wise men; listen to me, you men of learning. WBT 3 For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth food. NIV 3 For the ear tests words as the tongue tastes food. WBT 4 Let us choose to 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. WBT 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. WBT 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.' WBT 7 What man [is] like Job, [who] drinketh up scorning like water? NIV 7 What man is like Job, who drinks scorn like water? WBT 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. WBT 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.' WBT 10 Therefore hearken to 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. WBT 11 For the work of a man he shall render to 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. WBT 12 Yes, 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. WBT 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? WBT 14 If he should set his heart upon man, [if] he should gather to himself his spirit and his breath; NIV 14 If it were his intention and he withdrew his spirit and breath, WBT 15 All flesh would perish together, and man would turn again to dust. NIV 15 all mankind would perish together and man would return to the dust. WBT 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. WBT 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? WBT 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,' WBT 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? WBT 20 In a moment they shall 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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. WBT 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, WBT 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. WBT 28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come to 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. WBT 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, WBT 30 That the hypocrite may not reign, lest the people should be ensnared. NIV 30 to keep a godless man from ruling, from laying snares for the people. WBT 31 Surely it is meet to be said to 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. WBT 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.' WBT 33 [Should it be] according to thy mind? he will recompense it, whether thou shalt refuse, or whether thou shalt 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. WBT 34 Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken to me. NIV 34 "Men of understanding declare, wise men who hear me say to me, WBT 35 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words [were] without wisdom. NIV 35 'Job speaks without knowledge; his words lack insight.' WBT 36 My desire [is that] Job may be tried to 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! WBT 37 For he addeth rebellion to 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."
