35:1 Moreover Elihu answered and said,

35:2 Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than łGod's?

35:3 For thou hast asked of what profit it is unto thee: what do I gain more than if I had sinned?

35:4 I will reply to thee in words, and to thy companions with thee.

35:5 Look unto the heavens and see; and survey the skies: they are higher than thou.

35:6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? If thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?

35:7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou to him? or what doth he receive of thy hand?

35:8 Thy wickedness [may affect] a man as thou [art], and thy righteousness a son of man.

35:9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry; they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty:

35:10 But none saith, Where is +God my Maker, who giveth songs in the night,

35:11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowl of the heavens?

35:12 There they cry, and he answereth not, because of the pride of evil men.

35:13 Surely łGod will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.

35:14 Although thou sayest thou dost not see him, judgment is before him, therefore wait for him.

35:15 But now, because he hath not visited in his anger, doth not [Job] know [his] great arrogancy?

35:16 For Job hath opened his mouth in vanity, and made words abundant without knowledge.
