American Standard Version
Job, Chapter 35

   1: Moreover Elihu answered and said,
   2: Thinkest thou this to be [thy] right, [Or] sayest thou, My righteousness is more than God's,
   3: That thou sayest, What advantage will it be unto thee? [And], What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?
   4: I will answer thee, And thy companions with thee.
   5: Look unto the heavens, and see; And behold the skies, which are higher than thou.
   6: If thou hast sinned, what effectest thou against him? And if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?
   7: If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? Or what receiveth he of thy hand?
   8: Thy wickedness [may hurt] a man as thou art; And thy righteousness [may profit] a son of man.
   9: By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out; They cry for help by reason of the arm of the mighty.
   10: But none saith, Where is God my Maker, Who giveth songs in the night,
   11: Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, And maketh us wiser than the birds of the heavens?
   12: There they cry, but none giveth answer, Because of the pride of evil men.
   13: Surely God will not hear an empty [cry], Neither will the Almighty regard it.
   14: How much less when thou sayest thou beholdest him not, The cause is before him, and thou waitest for him!
   15: But now, because he hath not visited in his anger, Neither doth he greatly regard arrogance;
   16: Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vanity; He multiplieth words without knowledge.
