Job 35

ESV 1 And Elihu answered and said: NIV 1 Then Elihu said: ESV 2 "Do you think this to be just? Do you say, 'It is my right before God,' NIV 2 “Do you think this is just? You say, ‘I am in the right, not God.’ ESV 3 that you ask, 'What advantage have I? How am I better off than if I had sinned?' NIV 3 Yet you ask him, ‘What profit is it to me,and what do I gain by not sinning?’ ESV 4 I will answer you and your friends with you. NIV 4 “I would like to reply to you and to your friends with you. ESV 5 Look at the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds, which are higher than you. NIV 5 Look up at the heavens and see; gaze at the clouds so high above you. ESV 6 If you have sinned, what do you accomplish against him? And if your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to him? NIV 6 If you sin, how does that affect him? If your sins are many, what does that do to him? ESV 7 If you are righteous, what do you give to him? Or what does he receive from your hand? NIV 7 If you are righteous, what do you give to him, or what does he receive from your hand? ESV 8 Your wickedness concerns a man like yourself, and your righteousness a son of man. NIV 8 Your wickedness only affects humans like yourself, and your righteousness only other people. ESV 9 "Because of the multitude of oppressions people cry out; they call for help because of the arm of the mighty. NIV 9 “People cry out under a load of oppression; they plead for relief from the arm of the powerful. ESV 10 But none says, 'Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night, NIV 10 But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night, ESV 11 who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth and makes us wiser than the birds of the heavens?' NIV 11 who teaches us more than he teaches the beasts of the earth and makes us wiser than the birds in the sky?’ ESV 12 There they cry out, but he does not answer, because of the pride of evil men. NIV 12 He does not answer when people cry out because of the arrogance of the wicked. ESV 13 Surely God does not hear an empty cry, nor does the Almighty regard it. NIV 13 Indeed, God does not listen to their empty plea; the Almighty pays no attention to it. ESV 14 How much less when you say that you do not see him, that the case is before him, and you are waiting for him! NIV 14 How much less, then, will he listen when you say that you do not see him, that your case is before him and you must wait for him, ESV 15 And now, because his anger does not punish, and he does not take much note of transgression, NIV 15 and further, that his anger never punishes and he does not take the least notice of wickedness. ESV 16 Job opens his mouth in empty talk; he multiplies words without knowledge." NIV 16 So Job opens his mouth with empty talk; without knowledge he multiplies words.”
