Job Chapter 34

, . 1 {S} Moreover Elihu answered and said:
; , . 2 Hear my words, ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.
-, ; , . 3 For the ear trieth words, as the palate tasteth food.
-; -. 4 Let us choose for us that which is right; let us know among ourselves what is good.
- ; , . 5 For Job hath said: 'I am righteous, and God hath taken away my right;
- ; -. 6 Notwithstanding my right I am accounted a liar; my wound is incurable, though I am without transgression.'
- ; - . 7 What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water?
, - ; , --. 8 Who goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men.
-, --- , -. 9 For he hath said: 'It profiteth a man nothing that he should be in accord with God.'
, -- -:
; .
10 Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: {N}
Far be it from God, that He should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that He should commit iniquity.
, -; , . 11 For the work of a man will He requite unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.
-, -; , - . 12 Yea, of a surety, God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert justice.
- ; , . 13 Who gave Him a charge over the earth? Or who hath disposed the whole world?
- ; , . 14 If He set His heart upon man, if He gather unto Himself his spirit and his breath;
- ; , - . 15 All flesh shall perish together, and man shall return unto dust.
-, -; , . 16 If now thou hast understanding, hear this; hearken to the voice of my words.
; - . 17 Shall even one that hateth right govern? And wilt thou condemn Him that is just and mighty--
-- , -. 18 Is it fit to say to a king: 'Thou art base'? Or to nobles: 'Ye are wicked'?--
-, , -, -:
- .
19 That respecteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? {N}
For they all are the work of His hands.
, -- :
; , .
20 In a moment they die, even at midnight; {N}
the people are shaken and pass away, and the mighty are taken away without hand.
-, --; - . 21 For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He seeth all his goings.
-, -- , . 22 There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.
-, -- -, . 23 For He doth not appoint a time unto any man, when he should go before God in judgment.
-; . 24 He breaketh in pieces mighty men without inquisition, and setteth others in their stead.
--, ; , . 25 Therefore He taketh knowledge of their works; and He overturneth them in the night, so that they are crushed.
- -- . 26 He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others;
-, ; -, . 27 Because they turned aside from following Him, and would not have regard to any of His ways;
, -; . 28 So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto Him, and He heareth the cry of the afflicted.
, -- , ;
- - .
29 When He giveth quietness, who then can condemn? And when He hideth His face, who then can behold Him? {N}
whether it be done unto a nation, or unto a man, alike;
, -- . 30 That the godless man reign not, that there be none to ensnare the people.
--, -- . 31 For hath any said unto God: 'I have borne chastisement, though I offend not;
, ; - , . 32 That which I see not teach Thou me; if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more'?
, ---- -; - . 33 Shall His recompense be as thou wilt? For thou loathest it, so that thou must choose, and not I; therefore speak what thou knowest.
, ; , . 34 Men of understanding will say unto me, yea, every wise man that heareth me:
, - ; , . 35 'Job speaketh without knowledge, and his words are without discernment.'
-- -: -, -. 36 Would that Job were tried unto the end, because of his answering like wicked men.
- , ; . 37 For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.
