Elihu Confirms God's Justice

1Furthermore Elihu answered and said, 2Hear my words, O you wise men; and give ear to me, you that have knowledge. 3For the ear tries words, as the mouth tastes meat. 4Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good. 5For Job has said, I am righteous: and God has taken away my judgment. 6Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression. 7What man is like Job, who drinks up scorning like water? 8Which goes in company with the workers of iniquity, and walks with wicked men. 9For he has said, It profits a man nothing that he should delight himself with God. 10Therefore listen to me you men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity. 11For the work of a man shall he render to him, and cause every man to find according to his ways. 12Yes, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment. 13Who has given him a charge over the earth? or who has disposed the whole world? 14If he set his heart on man, if he gather to himself his spirit and his breath; 15All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again to dust. 16If now you have understanding, hear this: listen to the voice of my words. 17Shall even he that hates right govern? and will you condemn him that is most just? 18Is it fit to say to a king, You are wicked? and to princes, You are ungodly? 19How much less to him that accepts not the persons of princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands. 20In 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. 21For his eyes are on the ways of man, and he sees all his goings. 22There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 23For he will not lay on man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God. 24He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. 25Therefore he knows their works, and he overturns them in the night, so that they are destroyed. 26He strikes them as wicked men in the open sight of others; 27Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways: 28So that they cause the cry of the poor to come to him, and he hears the cry of the afflicted. 29When he gives quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hides his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only: 30That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared. 31Surely it is meet to be said to God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more: 32That which I see not teach you me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more. 33Should it be according to your mind? he will recompense it, whether you refuse, or whether you choose; and not I: therefore speak what you know. 34Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man listen to me. 35Job has spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom. 36My desire is that Job may be tried to the end because of his answers for wicked men. 37For he adds rebellion to his sin, he clapps his hands among us, and multiplies his words against God.
