1: And Elihu answereth and saith: 2: Hear, O wise men, my words, And, O knowing ones, give ear to me. 3: For the ear doth try words, And the palate tasteth to eat. 4: Judgment let us choose for ourselves, Let us know among ourselves what [is] good. 5: For Job hath said, 'I have been righteous, And God hath turned aside my right, 6: Against my right do I lie? Mortal [is] mine arrow -- without transgression.' 7: Who [is] a man like Job? He drinketh scoffing like water, 8: And he hath travelled for company With workers of iniquity, So as to go with men of wickedness. 9: For he hath said, 'It doth not profit a man, When he delighteth himself with God.' 10: Therefore, O men of heart, hearken to me; Far be it from God to do wickedness, And [from] the Mighty to do perverseness: 11: For the work of man he repayeth to him, And according to the path of each He doth cause him to find. 12: Yea, truly, God doth not do wickedly, And the Mighty doth not pervert judgment. 13: Who hath inspected for Himself the earth? And who hath placed all the habitable world? 14: If He doth set on him His heart, His spirit and his breath unto Him He gathereth. 15: Expire doth all flesh together, And man to dust returneth. 16: And if [there is] understanding, hear this, Give ear to the voice of my words. 17: Yea, doth one hating justice govern? Or the Most Just dost thou condemn? 18: Who hath said to a king -- 'Worthless,' Unto princes -- 'Wicked?' 19: That hath not accepted the person of princes, Nor hath known the rich before the poor, For a work of His hands [are] all of them. 20: [In] a moment they die, and at midnight Shake do people, and they pass away, And they remove the mighty without hand. 21: For His eyes [are] on the ways of each, And all his steps He doth see. 22: There is no darkness nor death-shade, For workers of iniquity to be hidden there; 23: For He doth not suffer man any more, To go unto God in judgment, 24: He breaketh the mighty -- no searching! And He appointeth others in their stead. 25: Therefore He knoweth their works, And He hath overturned by night, And they are bruised. 26: As wicked He hath stricken them, In the place of beholders. 27: Because that against right They have turned aside from after Him, And none of His ways have considered wisely, 28: To cause to come in unto Him The cry of the poor, And the cry of the afflicted He heareth. 29: And He giveth rest, and who maketh wrong? And hideth the face, and who beholdeth it? And in reference to a nation and to a man, [It is] the same. 30: From the reigning of a profane man, From the snares of a people; 31: For unto God hath any said: 'I have taken away, I do not corruptly, 32: Besides [that which] I see, shew Thou me, If iniquity I have done -- I do not add?' 33: By thee doth He recompense, That thou hast refused -- That thou dost choose, and not I? And what thou hast known, speak. 34: Let men of heart say to me, And a wise man is hearkening to me. 35: Job -- not with knowledge doth he speak, And his words [are] not with wisdom. 36: My Father! let Job be tried -- unto victory, Because of answers for men of iniquity, 37: For he doth add to his sin, Transgression among us he vomiteth, And multiplieth his sayings to God.
