The Darby Bible
Job, Chapter 35

   1: Moreover Elihu answered and said,
   2: Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God's?
   3: For thou hast asked of what profit it is unto thee: what do I gain more than if I had sinned?
   4: I will reply to thee in words, and to thy companions with thee.
   5: Look unto the heavens and see; and survey the skies: they are higher than thou.
   6: If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? If thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?
   7: If thou be righteous, what givest thou to him? or what doth he receive of thy hand?
   8: Thy wickedness [may affect] a man as thou [art], and thy righteousness a son of man.
   9: By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry; they cry out 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 fowl of the heavens?
   12: There they cry, and he answereth not, because of the pride of evil men.
   13: Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
   14: Although thou sayest thou dost not see him, judgment is before him, therefore wait for him.
   15: But now, because he hath not visited in his anger, doth not [Job] know [his] great arrogancy?
   16: For Job hath opened his mouth in vanity, and made words abundant without knowledge.
