Then Eli'hu said:
"Hear my words, you wise men, and give ear to me, you who know;
for the ear tests words as the palate tastes food.
Let us choose what is right; let us determine among ourselves what is good.
For Job has said, 'I am innocent, and God has taken away my right;
in spite of my right I am counted a liar; my wound is incurable, though I am without transgression.'
What man is like Job, who drinks up scoffing like water,
who goes in company with evildoers and walks with wicked men?
For he has said, 'It profits a man nothing that he should take delight in God.'
"Therefore, hear me, you men of understanding, far be it from God that he should do wickedness, and from the Almighty that he should do wrong.
