Job 35:5
Context
Elihu Reminds Job of God's Justice

1Elihu spoke moreover, and said, 2Think you this to be right, that you said, My righteousness is more than God's? 3For you said, What advantage will it be to you? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin? 4I will answer you, and your companions with you. 5Look to the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than you. 6If you sin, what do you against him? or if your transgressions be multiplied, what do you to him? 7If you be righteous, what give you him? or what receives he of your hand? 8Your wickedness may hurt a man as you are; and your righteousness may profit the son of man. 9By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty. 10But none said, Where is God my maker, who gives songs in the night; 11Who teaches us more than the beasts of the earth, and makes us wiser than the fowls of heaven? 12There they cry, but none gives answer, because of the pride of evil men. 13Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it. 14Although you say you shall not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust you in him. 15But now, because it is not so, he has visited in his anger; yet he knows it not in great extremity: 16Therefore does Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplies words without knowledge.
