Iyov (Book of Job), Chapter 35

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Moreover Elihu answered and said:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Thinkest thou this to be thy right, or sayest thou: 'I am righteousness before G-d',

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 That thou inquirest: 'What advantage will it be unto Thee?' And: 'What profit shall I have, more than if I had sinned?'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 I will give thee answer, and thy companions with thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the skies, which are higher than thou.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 If thou hast sinned, what doest thou against Him? And if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto Him?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou Him? Or what receiveth He of thy hand?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Thy wickedness concerneth a man as thou art; and thy righteousness a son of man.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out; they cry for help by reason of the arm of the mighty.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 But none saith: 'Where is G-d my Maker, who giveth songs in the night;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Surely G-d will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Yea, when thou sayest thou canst not see Him--the cause is before Him; therefore wait thou for Him.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 And now, is it for nought that He punished in His anger? And hath He not full knowledge of arrogance?

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 But Job doth open his mouth in vanity; he multiplieth words without knowledge.
