Job 36

GNT 1 Be patient and listen a little longer to what I am saying on God's behalf. NIV 1 Elihu continued: GNT 3 My knowledge is wide; I will use what I know to show that God, my Creator, is just. NIV 3 I get my knowledge from afar; I will ascribe justice to my Maker. GNT 4 Nothing I say to you is false; you see before you a truly wise man. NIV 4 Be assured that my words are not false; one who has perfect knowledge is with you. GNT 5 How strong God is! He despises no one; there is nothing he doesn't understand. NIV 5 “God is mighty, but despises no one; he is mighty, and firm in his purpose. GNT 6 He does not let sinners live on, and he always treats the poor with justice. NIV 6 He does not keep the wicked alive but gives the afflicted their rights. GNT 7 He protects those who are righteous; he allows them to rule like kings and lets them be honored forever. NIV 7 He does not take his eyes off the righteous; he enthrones them with kings and exalts them forever. GNT 8 But if people are bound in chains, suffering for what they have done, NIV 8 But if people are bound in chains, held fast by cords of affliction, GNT 9 God shows them their sins and their pride. NIV 9 he tells them what they have done— that they have sinned arrogantly. GNT 10 He makes them listen to his warning to turn away from evil. NIV 10 He makes them listen to correction and commands them to repent of their evil. GNT 11 If they obey God and serve him, they live out their lives in peace and prosperity. NIV 11 If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment. GNT 12 But if not, they will die in ignorance and cross the stream into the world of the dead. NIV 12 But if they do not listen, they will perish by the swordand die without knowledge. GNT 13 Those who are godless keep on being angry, and even when punished, they don't pray for help. NIV 13 “The godless in heart harbor resentment; even when he fetters them, they do not cry for help. GNT 14 They die while they are still young, worn out by a life of disgrace. NIV 14 They die in their youth, among male prostitutes of the shrines. GNT 15 But God teaches people through suffering and uses distress to open their eyes. NIV 15 But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction. GNT 16 God brought you out of trouble, and let you enjoy security; your table was piled high with food. NIV 16 “He is wooing you from the jaws of distress to a spacious place free from restriction, to the comfort of your table laden with choice food. GNT 17 But now you are being punished as you deserve. NIV 17 But now you are laden with the judgment due the wicked; judgment and justice have taken hold of you. GNT 18 Be careful not to let bribes deceive you, or riches lead you astray. NIV 18 Be careful that no one entices you by riches; do not let a large bribe turn you aside. GNT 19 It will do you no good to cry out for help; all your strength can't help you now. NIV 19 Would your wealth or even all your mighty efforts sustain you so you would not be in distress? GNT 20 Don't wish for night to come, the time when nations will perish. NIV 20 Do not long for the night, to drag people away from their homes. GNT 21 Be careful not to turn to evil; your suffering was sent to keep you from it. NIV 21 Beware of turning to evil, which you seem to prefer to affliction. GNT 22 Remember how great is God's power; he is the greatest teacher of all. NIV 22 “God is exalted in his power. Who is a teacher like him? GNT 23 No one can tell God what to do or accuse him of doing evil. NIV 23 Who has prescribed his ways for him, or said to him, ‘You have done wrong’? GNT 24 He has always been praised for what he does; you also must praise him. NIV 24 Remember to extol his work, which people have praised in song. GNT 25 Everyone has seen what he has done; but we can only watch from a distance. NIV 25 All humanity has seen it; mortals gaze on it from afar. GNT 26 We cannot fully know his greatness or count the number of his years. NIV 26 How great is God—beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out. GNT 27 It is God who takes water from the earth and turns it into drops of rain. NIV 27 “He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams ; GNT 28 He lets the rain pour from the clouds in showers for all human beings. NIV 28 the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind. GNT 29 No one knows how the clouds move or how the thunder roars through the sky, where God dwells. NIV 29 Who can understand how he spreads out the clouds, how he thunders from his pavilion? GNT 30 He sends lightning through all the sky, but the depths of the sea remain dark. NIV 30 See how he scatters his lightning about him, bathing the depths of the sea. GNT 31 This is how he feeds the people and provides an abundance of food. NIV 31 This is the way he governs the nations and provides food in abundance. GNT 32 He seizes the lightning with his hands and commands it to hit the mark. NIV 32 He fills his hands with lightning and commands it to strike its mark. GNT 33 Thunder announces the approaching storm, and the cattle know it is coming. NIV 33 His thunder announces the coming storm; even the cattle make known its approach.
