Job 36


Elihu Proposes to Teach

And proceeding still, Elihu says, Wait for me a little more! that I shall teach you. [3still 1For 5in 6me 2there is 4speech]. Having taken up my higher knowledge from afar, and to works of mine, [2righteous things 1I will speak] in truth, and [2not 5unjust 6words 3unjustly 1you shall 4perceive]. But know! that the  lord in no way shall undo the guileless man; the mighty in strength of heart. The impious in no way will he restore to life; and [2equity 3for the poor 1he shall impute]. He will not remove [2from 3the righteous 1his eyes], and they shall be with kings on a throne; he shall seat them into victory, and they shall be exalted. And the ones being shackled in manacles shall be held together by rough cords of poverty. And he shall announce to them their works, and their transgressions, for they are prevalent. 10 But [2the 3righteous 1he will listen to]; and he spoke that they shall turn from unrighteousness. 11 If they shall hear and serve, they shall complete their days among good things, and their years among beautiful things. 12 But the impious are not preserved -- by [2not 3willing 1their] to behold the  lord, and because being admonished they were unhearing. 13 And hypocrites in heart shall order rage; they shall not yell, for he bound them. 14 [2may 4die 1Therefore 5in 6youth 3their soul], and their life being pierced by messengers, 15 because they afflicted the weak and disabled; [3judgment 1and 4for the gentle 2he will expound]. 16 And from when he beguiled from out of the mouth of the enemy, an abyss for throwing down underneath it, that [2went down 1your table] full of fatness. 17 [3shall not fail 1but 4from 5the righteous 2judgment]; 18 and rage [2upon 3the impious 1will be], because of the impiety of bribes which they received for iniquities. 19 [2not 7you 1Let 6turn 8aside 5willingly 3the 4mind] of the supplication [3in 4necessity 1of the ones being 2disabled]! And all the ones fortifying strength. 20 You shall not drag away by night, [2should ascend 1so that others] instead of them. 21 But guard lest you act out of place! [2of 3these things 1for] you took up because of poorness. 22 Behold, the strong one shall conquer by his strength, for who is as he -- the mighty one. 23 And who is the one examining his works? or who is the one having said, He acted unjustly. 24 Remember that [4great 2works 1his 3are], which [2command 1men]! 25 Every man beholds in himself how many [3being pierced 2are 1mortals]. 26 Behold, the strong one is great, and we shall not know him; [2the number 3of his years 1and] are unlimited. 27 [4shall be counted 1And 5by him 2the drops 3of rain], and shall they be poured for rain in the cloud. 28 [2shall flow 1Things grown old], [3shadow 1and 2clouds] over untold mortals. 29 And should one have perceived the spreading out of the clouds, as equal of his tent? 30 Behold, he stretches out [2upon 3it 1light], and [2the root 3of the 4sea 1he covers]. 31 For in them he shall judge peoples; he shall give nourishment to the one being strong. 32 With the hands he covers light, and he gave charge concerning it with the encountering clouds. 33 He will announce [2concerning 3him 1his friend] -- for possession and for injustice.
