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 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 .

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.
