1: And Elihu addeth and saith: -- 2: Honour me a little, and I shew thee, That yet for God [are] words. 3: I lift up my knowledge from afar, And to my Maker I ascribe righteousness. 4: For, truly, my words [are] not false, The perfect in knowledge [is] with thee. 5: Lo, God [is] mighty, and despiseth not, Mighty [in] power [and] heart. 6: He reviveth not the wicked, And the judgment of the poor appointeth; 7: He withdraweth not from the righteous His eyes, And [from] kings on the throne, And causeth them to sit for ever, and they are high, 8: And if prisoners in fetters They are captured with cords of affliction, 9: Then He declareth to them their work, And their transgressions, Because they have become mighty, 10: And He uncovereth their ear for instruction, And saith that they turn back from iniquity. 11: If they do hear and serve, They complete their days in good, And their years in pleasantness. 12: And if they do not hearken, By the dart they pass away, And expire without knowledge. 13: And the profane in heart set the face, They cry not when He hath bound them. 14: Their soul dieth in youth, And their life among the defiled. 15: He draweth out the afflicted in his affliction, And uncovereth in oppression their ear. 16: And also He moved thee from a strait place, [To] a broad place -- no straitness under it, And the sitting beyond of thy table Hath been full of fatness. 17: And the judgment of the wicked thou hast fulfilled, Judgment and justice are upheld -- because of fury, 18: Lest He move thee with a stroke, And the abundance of an atonement turn thee not aside. 19: Doth He value thy riches? He hath gold, and all the forces of power. 20: Desire not the night, For the going up of peoples in their stead. 21: Take heed -- do not turn unto iniquity, For on this thou hast fixed Rather than [on] affliction. 22: Lo, God doth sit on high by His power, Who [is] like Him -- a teacher? 23: Who hath appointed unto Him his way? And who said, 'Thou hast done iniquity?' 24: Remember that thou magnify His work That men have beheld. 25: All men have looked on it, Man looketh attentively from afar. 26: Lo, God [is] high, And we know not the number of His years, Yea, there [is] no searching. 27: When He doth diminish droppings of the waters, They refine rain according to its vapour, 28: Which clouds do drop, They distil on man abundantly. 29: Yea, doth [any] understand The spreadings out of a cloud? The noises of His tabernacle? 30: Lo, He hath spread over it His light, And the roots of the sea He hath covered, 31: For by them He doth judge peoples, He giveth food in abundance. 32: By two palms He hath covered the light, And layeth a charge over it in meeting, 33: He sheweth by it [to] his friend substance, Anger against perversity.
