JOB 34
1: Furthermore Elihu answered and said,
2: Hear my words, O ye wise men; and give ear unto me, ye that have knowledge.
3: For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.
4: Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.
5: For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my judgment.
6: Should I lie against my right? my wound is incurable without transgression.
7: What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water?
8: Which 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 delight himself with God.
10: Therefore hearken unto me ye men of understanding: 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 shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.
12: Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.
13: Who hath given 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 turn again unto dust.
16: If now thou hast understanding, hear this: hearken to the voice of my words.
17: Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?
18: Is it fit to say to a king, Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly?
19: How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.
20: In a moment shall they die, and the people shall be troubled at midnight, and pass away: and the mighty shall be taken away without hand.
21: For his eyes are upon the ways of 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 will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God.
24: He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead.
25: Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.
26: He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others;
27: Because they turned back from him, and would not consider 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 make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only:
30: That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.
31: Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne chastisement, I will not offend any more:
32: That which I see not teach thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do no more.
33: Should it be according to thy mind? he will recompense it, whether thou refuse, or whether thou choose; and not I: therefore speak what thou knowest.
34: Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me.
35: Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.
36: My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men.
37: For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.

JOB 35
1: Elihu spake moreover, and said,
2: Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God's?
3: For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
4: I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee.
5: Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou.
6: If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?
7: If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand?
8: Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.
9: By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry: they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.
10: But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;
11: Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
12: There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.
13: Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
14: Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him.
15: But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity:
16: Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.

1: I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2: Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4: And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5: But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
6: For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
7: I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
9: Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me:
10: For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.
11: Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.
12: And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.
13: The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments.
14: Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
15: Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.
16: At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.
17: Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
18: And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
19: Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.
20: Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick.
21: Do thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren.
22: The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.
