1: Furthermore Elihu answered and said, edit

2: Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge. edit

3: For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat. edit

4: Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good. edit

5: For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my judgment. edit

6: Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression. edit

7: What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water? edit

8: Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men. edit

9: For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God. edit

10: Therefore hearken unto me ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity. edit

11: For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways. edit

12: Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment. edit

13: Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath disposed the whole world? edit

14: If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath; edit

15: All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust. edit

16: If now thou hast understanding, hear this: hearken to the voice of my words. edit

17: Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just? edit

18: Is it fit to say to a king, Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly? edit

19: How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands. edit

20: In 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. edit

21: For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings. edit

22: There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. edit

23: For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God. edit

24: He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead. edit

25: Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed. edit

26: He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others; edit

27: Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways: edit

28: So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted. edit

29: When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only: edit

30: That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared. edit

31: Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more: edit

32: That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more. edit

33: Should it be according to thy mind? he will recompense it, whether thou refuse, or whether thou choose; and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest. edit

34: Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me. edit

35: Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom. edit

36: My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men. edit

37: For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God. edit
