Elihu Continues
Are You Really Innocent?
35
1 Elihu said:
35 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 Elihu spake moreover, and said,
2 Job, are you really innocent
in the sight of God?
c 35.2 are ... God: Or “is it right for you to accuse God?”
2 Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God's?
3 Don't you honestly believe
it pays to obey him?
3 For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?
if...: or, by it more than by my sin
4 I will give the answers
to you and your friends.
4 I will answer thee, and thy companions with thee.
answer...: Heb. return to thee words
* 5 Look up to the heavens
5 Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou.
6 and think!
35.6-8 Job 22.2,3.
Do your sins hurt God?
6 If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?
7 Is any good you may have done
at all helpful to him?
7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand?
8 The evil or good you do
only affects other humans.
8 Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.

9 In times of trouble,
everyone begs the mighty God
to have mercy.
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 after their Creator
helps them through hard times,
they forget about him,
10 But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;
11 though he makes us wiser
than animals or birds.
11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
12 God won't listen to the prayers
of proud and evil people.
12 There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.
13 If God All-Powerful refuses
to answer their empty prayers,
13 Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
14 he will surely deny
your impatient request
to face him in court.
14 Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him.
15 Job, you were wrong to say
God doesn't punish sin.
15 But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity:
he hath: that is, God hath
he knoweth: that is, Job knoweth
16 Everything you have said
adds up to nonsense.
16 Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.
