Job 35 (WEBP)

[1] Moreover Elihu answered,
[2] “Do you think this to be your right, or do you say, ‘My righteousness is more than God’s,’
[3] that you ask, ‘What advantage will it be to you? What profit will I have, more than if I had sinned?’
[4] I will answer you, and your companions with you.
[5] Look to the skies, and see. See the skies, which are higher than you.
[6] If you have sinned, what effect do you have against him? If your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to him?
[7] If you are righteous, what do you give him? Or what does he receive from your hand?
[8] Your wickedness may hurt a man as you are, and your righteousness may profit a son of man.
[9] “By reason of the multitude of oppressions they cry out. They cry for help by reason of the arm of the mighty.
[10] But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night,
[11] who teaches us more than the animals of the earth, and makes us wiser than the birds of the sky?’
[12] There they cry, but no one answers, because of the pride of evil men.
[13] Surely God will not hear an empty cry, neither will the Almighty regard it.
[14] How much less when you say you don’t see him. The cause is before him, and you wait for him!
[15] But now, because he has not visited in his anger, neither does he greatly regard arrogance,
[16] therefore Job opens his mouth with empty talk, and he multiplies words without knowledge.”

Job 35 (KJVS)

[1] Elihu H453 spake H6030 (8799) moreover, and said H559 (8799),
[2] Thinkest H2803 (8804) thou this to be right H4941, [that] thou saidst H559 (8804), My righteousness H6664 [is] more than God’s H410?
[3] For thou saidst H559 (8799), What advantage H5532 (8799) will it be unto thee? [and], What profit H3276 (8686) shall I have, [if I be cleansed] from my sin H2403?
[4] I will answer H7725 (8686) H4405 thee, and thy companions H7453 with thee.
[5] Look H5027 (8685) unto the heavens H8064, and see H7200 (8798); and behold H7789 (8798) the clouds H7834 [which] are higher H1361 (8804) than thou.
[6] If thou sinnest H2398 (8804), what doest H6466 (8799) thou against him? or [if] thy transgressions H6588 be multiplied H7231 (8804), what doest H6213 (8799) thou unto him?
[7] If thou be righteous H6663 (8804), what givest H5414 (8799) thou him? or what receiveth H3947 (8799) he of thine hand H3027?
[8] Thy wickedness H7562 [may hurt] a man H376 as thou [art]; and thy righteousness H6666 [may profit] the son H1121 of man H120.
[9] By reason of the multitude H7230 of oppressions H6217 they make [the oppressed] to cry H2199 (8686): they cry out H7768 (8762) by reason of the arm H2220 of the mighty H7227.
[10] But none saith H559 (8804), Where [is] God H433 my maker H6213 (8802), who giveth H5414 (8802) songs H2158 in the night H3915;
[11] Who teacheth H502 (8764) us more than the beasts H929 of the earth H776, and maketh us wiser H2449 (8762) than the fowls H5775 of heaven H8064?
[12] There they cry H6817 (8799), but none giveth answer H6030 (8799), because H6440 of the pride H1347 of evil men H7451.
[13] Surely God H410 will not hear H8085 (8799) vanity H7723, neither will the Almighty H7706 regard H7789 (8799) it.
[14] Although H637 thou sayest H559 (8799) thou shalt not see H7789 (8799) him, [yet] judgment H1779 [is] before H6440 him; therefore trust H2342 (8787) thou in him.
[15] But now, because [it is] not [so], he hath visited H6485 (8804) in his anger H639; yet he knoweth H3045 (8804) [it] not in great H3966 extremity H6580:
[16] Therefore doth Job H347 open H6475 (8799) his mouth H6310 in vain H1892; he multiplieth H3527 (8686) words H4405 without H1097 knowledge H1847.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 35 (YLT)

[1] And Elihu answereth and saith:-
[2] This hast thou reckoned for judgment: Thou hast said- ‘My righteousness is more than God’s?’
[3] For thou sayest, ‘What doth it profit Thee! What do I profit from my sin?’
[4] I return thee words, and thy friends with thee,
[5] Behold attentively the heavens-and see, And behold the clouds, They have been higher than thou.
[6] If thou hast sinned, what dost thou against Him? And thy transgressions have been multiplied, What dost thou to Him?
[7] If thou hast been righteous, What dost thou give to Him? Or what from thy hand doth He receive?
[8] For a man like thyself is thy wickedness, And for a son of man thy righteousness.
[9] Because of the multitude of oppressions They cause to cry out, They cry because of the arm of the mighty.
[10] And none said, ‘Where is God my maker? Giving songs in the night,
[11] Teaching us more than the beasts of the earth, Yea, than the fowl of the heavens He maketh us wiser.’
[12] There they cry, and He doth not answer, Because of the pride of evil doers.
[13] Surely vanity God doth not hear, And the Mighty doth not behold it.
[14] Yea, though thou sayest thou dost not behold Him, Judgment is before Him, and stay for Him.
[15] And, now, because there is not, He hath appointed His anger, And He hath not known in great extremity.
[16] And Job with vanity doth open his mouth, Without knowledge words he multiplieth.
