Geneva Study Bible
   1: Elihu also proceeded, and said,
   2: Suffer me a little, and I will show thee; For I have yet somewhat to say on God's behalf.
   3: I will fetch my knowledge from afar, And will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
   4: For truly my words are not false: One that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.
   5: Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: He is mighty in strength of understanding.
   6: He preserveth not the life of the wicked, But giveth to the afflicted [their] right.
   7: He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: But with kings upon the throne He setteth them for ever, and they are exalted.
   8: And if they be bound in fetters, And be taken in the cords of afflictions;
   9: Then he showeth them their work, And their transgressions, that they have behaved themselves proudly.
   10: He openeth also their ear to instruction, And commandeth that they return from iniquity.
   11: If they hearken and serve [him], They shall spend their days in prosperity, And their years in pleasures.
   12: But if they hearken not, they shall perish by the sword, And they shall die without knowledge.
   13: But they that are godless in heart lay up anger: They cry not for help when he bindeth them.
   14: They die in youth, And their life [perisheth] among the unclean.
   15: He delivereth the afflicted by their affliction, And openeth their ear in oppression.
   16: Yea, he would have allured thee out of distress Into a broad place, where there is no straitness; And that which is set on thy table would be full of fatness.
   17: But thou art full of the judgment of the wicked: Judgment and justice take hold [on thee].
   18: For let not wrath stir thee up against chastisements; Neither let the greatness of the ransom turn thee aside.
   19: Will thy cry avail, [that thou be] not in distress, Or all the forces of [thy] strength?
   20: Desire not the night, When peoples are cut off in their place.
   21: Take heed, regard not iniquity: For this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.
   22: Behold, God doeth loftily in his power: Who is a teacher like unto him?
   23: Who hath enjoined him his way? Or who can say, Thou hast wrought unrighteousness?
   24: Remember that thou magnify his work, Whereof men have sung.
   25: All men have looked thereon; Man beholdeth it afar off.
   26: Behold, God is great, and we know him not; The number of his years is unsearchable.
   27: For he draweth up the drops of water, Which distil in rain from his vapor,
   28: Which the skies pour down And drop upon man abundantly.
   29: Yea, can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, The thunderings of his pavilion?
   30: Behold, he spreadeth his light around him; And he covereth the bottom of the sea.
   31: For by these he judgeth the peoples; He giveth food in abundance.
   32: He covereth his hands with the lightning, And giveth it a charge that it strike the mark.
   33: The noise thereof telleth concerning him, The cattle also concerning [the storm] that cometh up.
