Geneva Study Bible
   1: Moreover Elihu answered and said,
   2: Hear my words, ye wise men; And give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.
   3: For the ear trieth words, As the palate tasteth food.
   4: Let us choose for us that which is right: Let us know among ourselves what is good.
   5: For Job hath said, I am righteous, And God hath taken away my right:
   6: Notwithstanding my right I am [accounted] a liar; My wound is incurable, [though I am] without transgression.
   7: What man is like Job, Who drinketh up scoffing like water,
   8: Who goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, And walketh with wicked men?
   9: For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing That he should delight himself with God.
   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.
   11: For the work of a man will he render unto him, And cause every man to find according to his ways.
   12: Yea, of a surety, God will not do wickedly, Neither will the Almighty pervert justice.
   13: Who gave him a charge over the earth? Or who hath disposed the whole world?
   14: If he set his heart upon himself, [If] he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;
   15: All flesh shall perish together, And man shall turn again unto dust.
   16: If now [thou hast] understanding, hear this: Hearken to the voice of my words.
   17: Shall even one that hateth justice govern? And wilt thou condemn him that is righteous [and] mighty?-
   18: [Him] that saith to a king, [Thou art] vile, [Or] to nobles, [Ye are] wicked;
   19: That respecteth not the persons of princes, Nor regardeth the rich more than the poor; For they all are the work of his hands.
   20: In a moment they die, even at midnight; The people are shaken and pass away, And the mighty are taken away without hand.
   21: For his eyes are upon the ways of a man, And he seeth all his goings.
   22: There is no darkness, nor thick gloom, Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
   23: For he needeth not further to consider a man, That he should go before God in judgment.
   24: He breaketh in pieces mighty men [in ways] past finding out, And setteth others in their stead.
   25: Therefore he taketh knowledge of their works; And he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.
   26: He striketh them as wicked men In the open sight of others;
   27: Because they turned aside from following him, And would not have regard in any of his ways:
   28: So that they caused the cry of the poor to come unto him, And he heard the cry of the afflicted.
   29: When he giveth quietness, who then can condemn? And when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? Alike whether [it be done] unto a nation, or unto a man:
   30: That the godless man reign not, That there be none to ensnare the people.
   31: For hath any said unto God, I have borne [chastisement], I will not offend [any more]:
   32: That which I see not teach thou me: If I have done iniquity, I will do it no more?
   33: Shall his recompense be as thou wilt, that thou refusest it? For thou must choose, and not I: Therefore speak what thou knowest.
   34: Men of understanding will say unto me, Yea, every wise man that heareth me:
   35: Job speaketh without knowledge, And his words are without wisdom.
   36: Would that Job were tried unto the end, Because of his answering like wicked men.
   37: For he addeth rebellion unto his sin; He clappeth his hands among us, And multiplieth his words against God.
