Geneva Study Bible
   1: Moreover Elihu answered,
   2: "Hear my words, you wise men; Give ear to me, you who have knowledge.
   3: For the ear tries words, As the palate tastes food.
   4: Let us choose for us that which is right. Let us know among ourselves what is good.
   5: For Job has said, 'I am righteous, God has taken away my right:
   6: Notwithstanding my right I am considered a liar; My wound is incurable, though I am without disobedience.'
   7: What man is like Job, Who drinks up scoffing like water,
   8: Who goes in company with the workers of iniquity, And walks with wicked men?
   9: For he has said, 'It profits a man nothing That he should delight himself with God.'
   10: "Therefore listen to me, you men of understanding: Far be it from God, that he should do wickedness, From the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.
   11: For the work of a man will he render to him, And cause every man to find according to his ways.
   12: Yes surely, God will not do wickedly, Neither will the Almighty pervert justice.
   13: Who gave him a charge over the earth? Or who has appointed him over the whole world?
   14: If he set his heart on himself, If he gathered to himself his spirit and his breath;
   15: All flesh would perish together, And man would turn again to dust.
   16: "If now you have understanding, hear this. Listen to the voice of my words.
   17: Shall even one who hates justice govern? Will you condemn him who is righteous and mighty?--
   18: Who says to a king, 'Vile!' Or to nobles, 'Wicked!'
   19: Who doesn't respect the persons of princes, Nor regards 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, The mighty are taken away without hand.
   21: "For his eyes are on the ways of a man, He sees all his goings.
   22: There is no darkness, nor thick gloom, Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
   23: For he doesn't need to consider a man further, That he should go before God in judgment.
   24: He breaks in pieces mighty men in ways past finding out, And sets others in their place.
   25: Therefore he takes knowledge of their works. He overturns them in the night, so that they are destroyed.
   26: He strikes them as wicked men In the open sight of others;
   27: Because they turned aside from following him, And wouldn't have regard in any of his ways:
   28: So that they caused the cry of the poor to come to him, He heard the cry of the afflicted.
   29: When he gives quietness, who then can condemn? When he hides his face, who then can see him? Alike whether to a nation, or to a man:
   30: That the godless man may not reign, That there be no one to ensnare the people.
   31: "For has any said to God, 'I am guilty, but I will not offend any more.
   32: Teach me that which I don't see. If I have done iniquity, I will do it no more'?
   33: Shall his recompense be as you desire, that you refuse it? For you must choose, and not I. Therefore speak what you know.
   34: Men of understanding will tell me, Yes, every wise man who hears me:
   35: 'Job speaks without knowledge, His words are without wisdom.'
   36: I wish that Job were tried to the end, Because of his answering like wicked men.
   37: For he adds rebellion to his sin. He claps his hands among us, And multiplies his words against God."
